Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age

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.

    Why should there be a distinction beetween 3 tribes of goblins. You can use every model you like for anything. So in my opinion having separate rules for cave goblins, common goblins and forest goblins makes little sense. Just implement some goblin

    @Giladis Thanks for the explanation. I'll be honest: reviewing this question and that explanation, it seems the process is shackled somewhat by semantics.

    @kangur T9A considers characters units so I did not make a distinction. :) As for your second point, I do not quite understand what do you mean by solid or balanced choices in reference to my statement. Quote from Klaudel: “1. at some point of…

    Shamanism!!! Think you are right, in cc you often only have 2 cc spells, cause cleansing fire is not always usefull. Binding helps too, especially good against thauma and wrath. I think you need 10+ Tribesmen btw, but you seem to do most of the heavy…
