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 like the rule overall. I don't like the feel that new tokens are generated by a spell. Seems like "Oh, it's just magic". No blessing or favor from the godess, it's the wizards at it again with their ban-able trickery. I would have liked it more if…

    I don't know.I guess I like the rule,but all new tokens... Too many special army rules(for any army) imo, make the games longer and less attractive for casual players.

    Probably another Army Special Rule like Courage/Honesty/Ordeal? The guidelines made a lot of fuss telling us about Orisons that have so far been absent from the spoilers? :love:
