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.

    Certainly some different lists from the normal 3/4 block UD set ups. Very cool. Ezikel has been playing some sort of version of his list for a while. It seems to me to play similar to VC where he just has tons of chaff. His list looks more difficult to…

    I like the impact hit-reliant design in this case, it helps differentiate it from all of the other dinosaurs in the book and gives the unit a semi-unique zoning role.

    Ah actually like this particular topic. I think the game became ridiculously killy. So much so that if you reading in just building up CR without removing models, you’re super crippled in so many situations. The other problem is the extremes it…

    Durable, stubborn single models are NOT healthy for the game. Too easy to block something on a corner so you can't bring enough models into B2B to hurt it.

    Although of course 3d3 is much more damage than 1d6+1 rr, I loved the choice to rr, it was most of the time a fun moment for me and my opponent. Get a 3 or 4? Always that teasing from your opponent telling you your a coward if you dont rr while you try…
