Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age

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.

    I agree with you. In general, DCH is meant to be a support character. So the points should reflect the value of him supporting the hierophant. Meaning they would be probably unviable without the hierophant but fun to experiment with. Quote from Folomo:…

    I have played both and IMO makhar is weaker and has worse footprint issues. The heavy core tax brings a lot of models and footprint which is hard for a army that relies on space to flee. As Tyranno said, the core shooters are more sit as a block and…

    It's easy. You have 100 tournaments. Guys do 50 of them in random order. You don't have more manpower to do it. So you can only take the results entered knowing a lot misses. But you have to act on available data. You can now blame the team for only…

    Okay so the OP is no longer on the forum. So forward momentum is more frozen than it was already frozen. If other people want to chat around and brainstorm here I'd be happy to join in, but any progress that Chrono made has left the building.

    Giving the feminine Dyrgja their fair space and giving them back the lore as craving sex-beasts would be a start. Oh, and if it doesnt fit on a 20mm base and wants to fight it can go cosplay as ID. More seriously it would be genuinely awesome if the…
