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.

    Eru, thanks for the comments. How 1. to do?

    Watch "pro" game replays, crunch the stats before doing every move to weigh the risks, don't drink too much before the game starts, and study the rules.

    Oh, and succeed your dice rolls. Really focus on this point.

    I have to admit that I have found a positive correlation between my level of drunkenness and my tournament results

    but maybe this is only due to the resulting confusion of my opponents

    btw Mic, what do you think, why my alcohol shelf contains almost exclusively scotch? I WANT to assume you Scots are drunk all the time. Otherwise it is not explainable to me how you have discovered the crown of enjoyment here :)

    I'll need to defer to @Cam on that one

    I've currently swapped alcohol-dependence for Flammin' Hot Wotsits-dependence. They are like Cheetos for you EU volk

    The offensive portion of the rule is as low powered as the TT thinks is healthy for the mechanic. Krokz explained why, and so have I. It sits between an attribute and a level 1 spell with a power level overall equivalent to EoS Orders. The effect is the…

    I just want to point out that elven knights have this +1 to hit and high stats on all rounds and situations without the need for tokens or buffs. It is good and useful thing, but it can be balanced by points. We need to have that Orison unit to get the…
