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.

    I would be hesitant to put the Omen on the list for a simple reason. There was a time when he was largely taken. And then he got a price hike, and a Ds debuff, and now he's not taken as much. Unfortunately I'd see that as quite a convincing argument that…

    I don't think this list is hard to play. Many small, fast, hard hitting units that are quite agile, it is a fitting concept. Not hard to play, just unusual for many players.

    As fun as it is to list things we'd like to change in the book we need to be realistic. Changing mechanics like favours would be in direct conflict with the background and change of that magnitude would require a lot of manpower which we don't have as…

    i have fear that giving Spears Def5 will only make them closer to SG. Also, as many unit already hit us on 4+ (at least non core), i struggle to really see the benefit of it or that we may very well pay too much for this on our SM, LG or FW (after…

    @jaith1: thanks for tuning in. The aspect of comparing apples and oranges in the core category is very true indeed. I categorized my remarks per book category, not because that has any relevancy, but just because the dashboard is structured like it this…
