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.
T9A

Fellow T9A gamers, it's finally time for the annual balance update. Not a moment too soon! Find all information about it in our news.

    Am I the only one who LIKES the new elven kangaroos? I think they look kind of neat. Certainly better than a lot of other stuff GW has put out lately.

    I would have love to see GW suggests kangaroo-riding elves to the Tolkien Trust as part of their Middle Earth game.

    Who knows what lies in the strange lands beyond Harad, and what happened to the lost tribes of elves.

    @Eldan you aren't alone. I like the kangaroos. I would have put the elves mounted in the pouch, but that'sjust me

    Eldan

    I mean, they aren't even *that* Kangaroo-like. For starters, from the leg position we can clearly see that they run instead of hopping.

    I know GW have been trying to make their models break off their bases lately...

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    but Kangaroos hopping would be pushing it.

    if you ask me, they just wanted to give some competition to their old Nagash model.

    It's even more fun if you think about the fact that the cannonball gets the lowly impact of a normal arrow after the first hit but still that arrow pierces unhindered through 4 different targets ... IMO cannons should loose +1 to hit vs TP, it makes no…

    Quote from Doug_L: “Bluntly put, SA is a pretty garbage book. ” I agree with most of your points, but it’s a little harsh to Call the book garbage. Would probably say there is plenty of opportunity for improvements instead. ^^
