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.

Fellow T9A gamers, it's finally time for the annual balance update. Not a moment too soon! Find all information about it in our news.

The latest issue of the 9th Scroll is available! You can read all about it in the news.

    I very much like the idea of the nation being obsessed with the feudal pecking order. Rank and privilege very much being what it is built on (crappy peasant units, glorious knights) is super cool. This also opens up the option for the peasants…

    Quote from Casp: “ i don’t like guideline saying that KOE should not have lateral move. Seems like an heresy for me. I want cavalry able to flank. ” That is a valid point, espiecially that for years we've been told, whenever reporting the rubber lance

    I think KoE is an army with a steep learning curve, so while some good players who play them regularly get high scores on tournaments, many average players struggle with the low error resistance of KoE. You don t get many second chances with this army, I…

    I took a shot from whole model just for fun. It's freaking 20 cm or so tall. I think it's fair that there is word "overwhelming" in its name :P Only wish that model on top would be without base... 6qhl0mJ.jpg
