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.

    @Casp Basically the current book has a steep skill curve, because of the combination of high movement and steadfast breaking. Moreover, this means that the army is not priced for the thematic ways of playing that most of the community assume/want. Chaff

    @Little Joe I used to not do that either, makes me feel dirty every time... I've decided to chill back on the competetive thinking and find the joy I once had with my toy soldiers.

    indeed! if i understand correctly they force a Break test at Discipline 4 after scoring 4 wounds... which without Corruption of Tin is something that would only happen in 2% of the cases! without considering the Warriors dealt less than 4 wounds
