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.

    Chronocide

    1996, so male focused plot, very stiff action, and slow paced. It's otherwise quite good. It's one of those shows that was released before it's time and that was the problem.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    It's the whole immortals using intrigue to move people like pawns in an eternal chess game, but written by writters that are desperatly trying to create a new target audience because vampire shows are not developed at this point.

    Chronocide

    If it had arrived AFTER True Blood, it would have been very well recieved.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    If it had been after, then they wouldn't have needed to spend so much time explaining the concepts in the vampire setting, which would have allowed more time for more complex intrigue.
