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 wonder what kind of game plays a "very competitive community" Which seems to hate rule changing. Not gw stuff definitively.

    After a topsy-turvy week of being sick, anxiety over what kind of sick it was, being quarantined, and then getting (thankfully) negative results back; it has taken me longer to get pictures of my recent conversion: a Dwarven Holds Anvil of Power!

    I guess I must have gotten about 150 games under my belt since I started T9A two years ago. From a gameplay perspective the idea, that T9A as a game somehow needs to be "finished", has never orccured to me as quite frankly it is already in a more refined…
