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.

    Two folds 1. Rage is an existing rule so no new rules are invented complexity budget is low in that regard 2. Needing to roll 6s to gain attacks would significantly reduce its damage output. And kerb stomp the entry

    En l'occurence ça ne s'applique pas car les loups sont engagés, ce qui les empêchent de faire une reformation qui permetterait l'alignement (elle doit rester alignée avec l'autre unité engagée qui elle ne peut pas changer de position - tout est bloqué).

    Bei den beiden geilen Armeen ist es ja fast eine Schande, nur noch auf 2D Gelände zu spielen. Wir sind im privaten Kreis wieder auf Geländemodelle umgestiegen und haben die 2D Version drunter.
