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.

    Not complaining, mind you. Just that I've been gone a year and the effort to update is screenshots and cropping...

    So if they aren't current, that's because it wasn't worth the minimal effort required to update them.

    Ive played them- I tried two units of 15, but thought it was to much point-dedication to 4+, so switched around in the list and played 1 unit of 15. I think they are all right. The main problem being a somewhat low armour save with ag 0, seems to be…

    Basically means that the book is finished and there's no longer room for any rules changes. Exceptions to this includes changes to points, army categories/composition, spell selection (maybe??). There are some other things that can be added like "cannot

    Quote from WarX: “Problem we have is disparity: units with Shieldwall strike too weak and units without it are too easy to kill. We are missing some middle ground. ” I agree. The resistance of dwarves should not depend primarily on a piece of equipment.
