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.

    I'd love a Ciaphias Cain-esque Silexian Commander, who is where he is by virtue of tactical greatness and a knack for being in the right place, or away from the wrong place, at the right time. Show me the perspective of the Silexian Army on the weird…

    Well, from my perspective witchcraft fit koe even more than shamanish to be honest.... I would like to swap them for damsel, considering that maybe what we see as a "damsel" could be also a witch of the court and not a witch of the swamps XD. Surely…

    Another reason I would merge eadbasher with normal orcs. To have a bigger wiggle room in comparison to goblin units without going weird ways like giving goblins St2 or something. (I think current goblin statline is ok and doesnt need tweaking around).…

    Quote from berti: “And the new gained wide access to witchcraft also helps a lot against elfes. (even when it doesn´t fit the army at all in my opinion) ” Damsels are witches as far as Im concerned. Lady living in a lake? Witch (especially if she…

    I'd like a novel from the POV of a Warlock Outcast. The first line should be: "I used to be feared and respected." ;) #justteasing

    Background: the Academy peaks my curiosity atm, but some good reaving tales from the corsairs or stories about the conflicting bonding & subjugation from a beastmaster perspective would be ace as well!

    Nerfs I’m ok with removing March and Shoot from SA. R&f units shouldn’t have access to 18” M&S. That should be limited to LT units. Gorgons seem a tad to good. They Maybe -1Att on the profile? Otherwise they will be hard to balance with…

    I don't know if this is the correct place. but I would like remove the rule Born to Fight and add St4 in their basics stats. I think this is simple and one rule less. The perfect thing for me would be Orc core unit merged between Orc unit and Eadbashers…

    I doubt that including again 3 "races" or ages in core and special makes any sense. Why would you. It even makes no sense to treat Iron orks as anything else than the most battle proven and best equiped unit in the book. No need to articicial create…

    Quote from Axiem: “Replying only to the opponent section: - Fearless bubble on everything within 18”. Easily-obtainable fearless in an army with 300+ models, and suppose to have low Disc. Invalidates a stated weakness and a thematic weakness. - Power

    I'm most likely beating a dead horse here, but as Giladis said, this whole debate sprung from a small lore paragraph by a human observer, which I think highlights the very heavy problems in the method which the project uses to disperse fluff to the…
