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.

    Eru, thanks for the comments. How 1. to do?

    Watch "pro" game replays, crunch the stats before doing every move to weigh the risks, don't drink too much before the game starts, and study the rules.

    Oh, and succeed your dice rolls. Really focus on this point.

    I have to admit that I have found a positive correlation between my level of drunkenness and my tournament results

    but maybe this is only due to the resulting confusion of my opponents

    btw Mic, what do you think, why my alcohol shelf contains almost exclusively scotch? I WANT to assume you Scots are drunk all the time. Otherwise it is not explainable to me how you have discovered the crown of enjoyment here :)

    I've currently swapped alcohol-dependence for Flammin' Hot Wotsits-dependence. They are like Cheetos for you EU volk

    I suppose that i'll do the devil advocate (the Infernal Dwarves pay well for that) and point out that the Lammasu is not a wizard conclave but a wizard adept that would normally have access to 2/3 lores, so having only 5 spells to choose from could be…

    I don't really get the reason for Fetthis Brutes to be Resilience 5 when we have Murmillo Brutes that are R5. If we go by the available models on the market, then the Fetthis Brtues look like a regular R4 Large Infantry model but with bigger muscles…

    Requested by author to be deleted I am not sure what do you mean - objective is a part of score and you cannot separate it, average of 12-8 means that army is way above the curve.
