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.

    Quote from Baranovich: “That color scheme on your GUO is magnificent! Grungy and diseased-looking! I like how mine came out, but I wish I had done a more pallid tone like you did here. I went with the classic Nurgley green, which is cool but it could…

    I was forced to go back to my traditional wash+highlight painting style for a commission I agreed to do. The results are objectively better close up, but the time it takes is just silly: zB17I4a.jpg YyBFfX6.jpg jEWW75v.jpg w39SDWw.jpg

    would seem to be not really something that reduces complexity...wouldn´t it? And it would be an unneccesary stat in more than half the armies.
