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.

    Hello generals, What is your favourite Slann magelord loadout and WHY? Do you keep it low cost, or do you pump it up, and what do you select? How does it differ between tournament loadout and one shot games? Thanks for the insight!

    I believe it will depend on the size/height of units A & B. Unit B might block LoS or provide cover for Unit A because both units are elevated. From the rule book pg 77: Elevated PositionModels with the centre of their base on a Hill are considered to…

    Yeah, although EoS still has bad core fighters. VS have been granted a significant buff (so long as they're steadfast).

    There were a lot of good suggestions at the beginning of this year. Cant we take some of those instead of rethinking it again? I would use minor design changes for opening up some new playstyles.

    Accurate is a boring rule though. Encourages hanging back at Max range. SiER however. Heck maybe a 5x4 unit makes sense, so you’ve Got some some stuff with Ranks in a pinch. 8x4 formation (yes I know 30 is max, but maybe an Elu’s bow guy in there)…
