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.

    maybe a weird question: is there a possibility to hide forum posts fro mspecific users? does "block" work or is it just for private messages? [no offense was done, just personal feelings]

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    block is for personal messages. If they are making inappropriate posts out in the open, report fucntion

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    Or you could try asking them directly to change a post because it bothers you. Some would, if you explain it.

    Sometimes, though, just walking away (unsubscribing from the thread) is the answer

    Can sylvan elves move the beastmen dark forest with tree singing?

    I would think it can, since Seed drops a "Forest Terrain Feature" and Tree Singing moves a "Forest Terrain Feature."

    Also, that is hilarious

    And it's out. I must ask - is it intended that all the Daemon books and Supplements have some king of rule that benefits the enemy? 1. Cultists have Nobody Expects (at least it's optional and has a risk factor for the opponent) 2. Daemons give 2 veils 3.…

    1. Forge Wardens We all see how often they're picked. They're too specialized shooters in my opinion (S3 AP0 2+ to hit makes them "anti-elf skirmishers hiding in woods" only) and in terms of CC there are better S4 choices (shield wall, better AR, other…

    I have a question : How much value would you lost/gain/don't matter if you swap a unit of bats for 1 more VK on each unit ? 3 VK feels a bit like Ryma Knight, once you lost 1-2 HP you are basically dead weight (altough VK have way more staying power)
