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.

    That's exactly why I said it's not worth changing the rules of the game just to accommodate the mistakes made in one LAB. R2 simply isn't enough of a downside to balance out LiC and it never will be unless the points costs reach levels that would be…

    What lists are not including some S5 or S6 units? Nearly everyone is investing in more expensive options that are a complete waste or even a hindrance against VS, that's completely different than one or two units doing well into some kind of archetype.…

    Quote from skipschnit: “Just to comment on the R2 part de-valuing S6+...that's really irrelevant. Whether we made the units R1 or R4, it has no bearing on high strength models. Its always a 2+ to wound. What the R2 does is improve the biggest section…

    Is it too late to join this league? I'm working on quite a bit of my army getting ready for Red River Rumble and finished these guys last month. This month going to get quite a bit more done! the-ninth-age.com/community/in…b3f93ad38619c8b3972e6e18f

    The point is simple: units with Life is Cheap should be crap. Untrained, poorly armed, no armor. As soon as you give them any bonuses of any kind then life is no longer cheap. A trained and armed soldier is not cheap. So limit the units with the rule to…
