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.

    or for Abidjan urban train to start building. I found a book talking about it in my grandfather's library, dated 1982: « Soon there will be a train ». 2020 is here, they're still talking about it. For a siilar running gag, check Brussels RER.

    So, if you want to edit lexicons yourself, make a template or two

    Well, I'll probably be the only one using them. But at least there's a record so when the 3.0 crew tries to make sense of my lexicons, they'll be able to figure our what I was doing.

    I was sure you'd fall in this pitfall and you dutifully did :D Added it just for this. Nevertheless I'm right about Shipherd in the context of the discussion: he is taken for the Stubborn thingy and to bolster his pals' unit strength, not just to be BSB.

    In WHFB the rulebook actually had a disclaimer of something like "sometimes the rules arent clear so just 4 up it" which partially led to a feeling of why bother for me. Add to that the game was very often decided by "can I roll two sixes in 6 dice" or…

    In my opinion making the game accessable should be one of Projects goals. Otherwise all the effort to create full game and not another oldhammer is wasted. Art and background are needed only when you want to become new game for new people. If T9A was to…
