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.

    placing model on A4 white paper and curving part of it against something as background helps a lot

    love the minis, lawgnome! if you ever put them on a lazysusan and shoot a video of them rotating (with Jims blank background), i could even try to turn them into a 3D model! : D

    That would definitely be interesting. I'll see if I can manage that for you.

    Aren't there a couple of new Mulans? I think there's a disney one and another that isn't disney

    only heard of the Disney one (not positively)

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    lawgnome

    I think they are both Disney. One is animated from the 90s and good, and one is live action from this year and terrible

    I think we're all looking at the CR buff the wrong way. It's not that the rats care so little that they hold out longer. It's that the death of a rat makes so little a difference that the enemy breaks first. With this swarming, writhing mass of bodies…

    I would change the riddle rule to following: 1. Declare the spell, the target and the number of dice. 2. Reactive player decides whether to dispel or not, number of dice to dispel, rolls them. 3. Then roll casting dice.
