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.

    Honestly, I'm surprised they haven't tried selling their models as lootboxes at this point.

    Though the models in question are push-fit kits of 1 model that is actually really good quality and they are something GW markets to people in Japan because it doesn't take much space.

    Not sure if I like an Ambush as a heredtiary spell. But this is how I would do it:. Ambush spell: cast the spell. Mark a point 18" range of the caster. A unit with Ambush in reserve may enter the table from that spot.

    Alright, so here goes! Don't get your hopes up, because I'm clearly no longer privy to the 9th Age meta and the mess I've designed here is more about theme than necessarily being a competitive army (although of course, the idea is to make a cool, fun…

    This is outstanding work @Squigkikka. Its all really interesting and definitely the direction I too think DH should go in. A unique magic phase that the entire army can benefit from. I like the songs and the words but I especially like some of the unit…
