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.

Fellow T9A gamers, it's finally time for the annual balance update. Not a moment too soon! Find all information about it in our news.

The latest issue of the 9th Scroll is available! You can read all about it in the news.

    We actually tried to create three different places to use old Dancers. 1. Handlers of Beasts in Thunderpavk and Monsters 2. Beast Breakers 3. Temple Militants. We believe that gives a place to use models which used to symbolize Dancers of Yema.

    @Echunia Real nice. Thanks for the feedback. I tried my list but my crossbows didn't play a major role. Against asklander with two units of 15 ambushers. I deployed so that they couldn't come in my back. Still won 19/1 because I made the ambushers

    Hey all, I just posted another battlereport ES vs WD. Some observations from this game: I had high hopes for the light infantry with their armour piercing shot. This did not really pan out. Most of the time enemies are too far away and/or in cover, and…

    @theunwantedbeing or some more exotic formation. Old GW v4 was pretty cool too ;) if we go in a full triangle formation without overlap to make things simpler with 9 model you have3 rank like 3 wide And then to get 4 rank you need 16 so same than 4 wide.

    This came together pretty organically, just started gluing stuff to some cardboard: GNgGRRm.jpg 8539XNM.jpg Wanted to start building up a collection of terrain and a piece of impassible seemed like an easy enough place to start.

    Quote from mclizard: “It still seems that ranged units are pretty underpowered compared to melee. ” It is really matchup & terrain and positionally dependent I think. Shooting varies across the Patrols from just being a small extra thing to consider to…
