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.

    Well, I have confessed on occasion that I sympathise with VS players who yearn for the disciples in Core because of their collection of models, although I also understand the design rationale and I think it is correct. I think the biggest problem, at…

    The thing is I have 2 close friends who have offered, but not much came of it. It’s unfortunate as AB has always been my favourite.

    A pity. I really liked a comprehensive AB printout, with all the stats and rules expanded on four or five pages; I rarely even needed opening the army book(let).

    To me, altering the base to a 75x75 is completely senseless. It disrespects all vermin deamon hobby work done for the last 5+ years, while not actually achieving much gameplay wise. It makes me want to put less efford into my other pre-lab armies, and

    How is keeping the base size at 75x50 doing “large harm to a small group” more than changing it to the as-yet-nonexistent 75x75? I would genuinely see your point if it were being reverted to 40x40 or 50x50, for example, as it would be moving back to a…

    I think the worst part of this 'mole hill' situation is precisely that it is such a relatively minor change function wise and yet we still have to go through the same annoying re-basing process for a mere +25mm depth on something that has had a fixed…
