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.

    What the word for people from Sonnstahl? Sonnstahlers?

    Remy77077

    I think so @Reliquary .. I can't find anything official using that though tbf

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Remy77077

    yeah Wiki has "Sonnstahler, Sonnstahlers"

    Reliquary

    cool

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Reliquary

    pleased to see their speech is sonnsprache

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Reliquary

    much more evocative that "sonnstahlese" or "sonnstahler"

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Eldan

    Weird, though.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Eldan

    Sonnstahl was already a weird name, and I don't know a single Germanic language that is called anything-Sprache

    Indeed, but it sounds exotic to an outsider's ears. Oftentimes, it's beneficial for fiction to play up exotic aspects of any culture..

    I'll check out the old worlds fluff but like MrFrelf mentioned - I can't bring myself to pay for rules produced by GW.

    Hard pass. I'll get the rules but the only trend I've seen is their insatiable grab for market share. 9th Age is FREE, let's you use whatever models you want, makes every army playable, and the culture in my area is super casual. This crap is supposed to…

    Well, I did ok at the joust. Not amazing but I got 9th place over all. 67 battle points out of what 100 possible? Had some very bad dice in game one take a 20-0 into basically a 10-10 (lost the deathstar) then didn't know what I was doing against demons…
