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.

    Quote from Whip: “Both non-core dwarf units (Immortals and DoL) lose to everyone else's special/elite units. With M3/9 it's not like we're doing massive counter-charges to grind out tougher enemies. These units get engaged and just lose over and over…

    Speaking of future videos, If people here want me to talk about more specific things (such as the mad git video) feel free to ask me here. Usually its pretty random stuff, but with the ONG book theres so much to unpack and different views.

    Thing is, even with overlord in a immortal block is not that strong a unit.. We still lose to most other elite blocks.. Armor is just not what it used to be :( Also, they can just ignore it, due to it being slow as hell, so get ready to be chaffed.
