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.

    GW's intentionally loose handling of other languages made for some joy. Every Swede who has ever read the town name of Bögenhafen has had a laugh out of it.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Sonnenstahl also sounds better

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Karak Norn Clansman

    But yes, doing actual consistent languages give it all more bottom. Like Tolkien did. Presumably, the Sonnstahl language is German with modifications.

    "Sonnish" may sound right to a German speaker but it's off to an English speaker.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Reliquary

    too much like "son"

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    "childish"

    Eldan

    I mean, it's either that or Stahlisch

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Eldan

    I can't really think of anything else derrived from Sonnenstahl that would make for a language name

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Eldan

    Definitely not going to use Sonnsprache in the German translation, anyway

    Setting up a match in UB, come play against some elves!

    Sonnrede?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    DarkSky

    You could name the language after the capital

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    DarkSky

    if the capital pushed out local dialects

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Eldan

    Hm.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Eldan

    That's an option, I suppose.

    Aschauer?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    DarkSky

    Asch (like Deutsch) or Ascherisch, Aschisch, Aschauerisch. Doesn't really sound good

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    DarkSky

    Or just use Sunna

    Dwarf warrior darts are reasonably cheap chaff, and might live to chaff again if the enemy unit restrains. Some results of my own: I just finished the Socal Joust (2 day event) in Los Angeles. Here are my results. 19-1 vs O&G 13-7 vs WDG 12-8 vs UD

    Simple. Give to saurians the special rule so quatl can stand behind and you will see the guard will extincted. The same happens if priest becomes a master. The lack of options keeps them alive and team saves balance work.
