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.

    Yes, bound spells can always be casted. No matter if the spell is also available on a normal wizard and already casted.

    75x75 makes sense because common models have either 75x50 or 50x75. We only have to enlarge in one direction. But 80x80 has no advantage. The Dictatoe can not join units, so no reason to make him "matching bases" with infantry. The Triumphal Platform on…

    @eggsPR I understand your position, but surely you’ll agree that, everything else equal, it’d be better if VonK was free? It’s not a competitive option either way, but RT not making it free in the balance update was a mistake, right? For me, VonK…
