Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age

This site uses cookies. By continuing to browse this site, you are agreeing to our Cookie Policy.

Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age is an independent table top miniature wargame set in a fantasy world, in which players take control of armies and set them upon one another in conflicts ranging from minor skirmishes to mighty battles with hundreds of models.

The game and all of its rules are completely free to download and use, and consist of a main rulebook and over fifteen army documents, ranging from stoic men and noble elves to the feral orcs and dread worshipers of the dark gods. You can easily assemble your own army using appropriate 28mm miniatures from any manufacturer.

Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age has been created by a group of experienced wargamers, a large supportive staff and continuous input from the wargaming community. We aim to provide a competitive, balanced and fun game, with updates and new rules to be released regularly.

We’ve created 16 unique armies from the Dread Elves in the west to the Ogre Khans in the east. Each army has different units and playstyles and can be represented by models from any 28mm model company. People said it was impossible, but we have created a game that is both balanced and fun. Don’t believe us? Try it for yourselves.

Happy wargaming.

    @Eldan you aren't alone. I like the kangaroos. I would have put the elves mounted in the pouch, but that'sjust me

    I mean, they aren't even *that* Kangaroo-like. For starters, from the leg position we can clearly see that they run instead of hopping.

    mi opinion is that the concept of the spell is ok, but not that much competitive. at least it should be AP1 and not dying if touchin other friendly units. it doesnt even chaff anything. it would be better if this was an attribute of vermin swarm lore.

    I’m sorry, but saying that lancers are good when you rear charge your opponent really shows the skill gaps involved in using this unit. No opponent worth their salt is going to let you break their line with 10-12 s5 off4 attacks. And if they are…

    I think Alex has done what he could with what he was given and the perimeters of it. There are too many manifestations and they can’t be lumped together as one choice. I’m working on another angle to try and help, but the book is in a weird spot. …
