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.

    Ah. I would have guessed code station or random number channel.

    Those used to be very useful before we got random.org.

    Does artillery (round bases) have front, flank and rear arc like a normal square base unit?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    piteglio

    3.A.c Model Facings A model has 4 Facings: Front, Rear, and two Flanks. The Facings are the edges of the model’s base. Models on round bases only have a single Facing, which is considered to be their Front Facing.

    Is distracting just as good +1 res or +1 armor? As

    Mercenary

    If we are assuming melee combat ofc.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    At worse Distracting is on par with +1 Res and AS, sometimes it’s better.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    Would be better if distracting could stack. +1 Res would stack, as would +1 AS

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Nerocrossius

    Distracting is really powerful. Especially when combined with Parry which is basically stacking.
