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.

    Turning back into topic. My wishlist is: - Hell Maw with a simple design that helps movement for the whole army. - Heavy Standard Infantry as a whole and main strategy (50-75% points spent in infantry) being viable without Hell Maw, my idea here is…

    @WastelandWarrior please try to remain positive ;) We should try to focus on getting a simple, yet strong proposal to benefit from this opportunity... We all can agree that we are not 100% happy with the current book, and all have numerous ideas to…

    @Just Wes I went with Stubborn for the sake of simplicity, since the Paycart had inherent Stubborn anyway and I don't think anyone in their right mind would run a Paymaster out on his own on foot. Thank you, @Keller, for all of your work on this. I've…

    I think you all focus too much on some few matches. This is a game of dice afterall, and luck is an important factor. Having a few good or bad rolls is far more influencing a single match than any conceptual effect you are looking for. I fear the effect…

    The Deepwatch having the bodyguard Rule makes them a choice almost like the hammerers. Maybe replacing this with that they simply double their number of ranks for steadfast for instance could be a thing. But why heroes should not be able to join them I…

    Quote from Shukran: “Veil walker got reduced price because of new magic raise cost overall. ” for the veil walker I would see that its cost depends on the number of spells known by the wizard. like 20pts/per spell so we would have: apprentice =…

    Spears with shieldwall for Deepwatch, and they will see play! with or without bodyguard Forgewarden, give em S4 as was the original design intent. Or S5 in single file or skirmish (who shoots a flamer from 2nd rank???)

    @Lakonas I completely understand @WastelandWarrior. Each time some forum ideas or wishes got taken into account they were stripped of the "buff side" and transformed into nerfs while telling us that we had to be happy since they listened us. That…
