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.

    It's more that everything in France is cancelled, including travelling outside your own region. Which makes any tournament that needs to be nationwide impossible :)

    I've made some calculations of average wounds inflicted by SH against most popular opponents. First the most popular cowboy builds and then specific units. Assumptions and clarifications: -he's using PW, so all cowboys are hit on 2+ with no parry

    I like that the assassin isnt an insta-win vs every character. The ability to show up and plain delete a character isn’t fun for anyone. But he might be a little light vs characters as it is. A simple workaround could be nominating one character in…
