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.

    but I've removed tons of spam accounts in 2020 and 2021, not sure how much of an impact it has...

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    (to be clear about the last statement: previously, spam accounts were banned. I've changed my personal policy about that, because most spanners don't care about being banned: they're here to leave a link or two to their personal website, so that their Google ranking get higher.)

    (So now, I delete those accounts and every trace of them, so they're not counted in the previous figures for most of 2020 and 2021.)

    Doomblade is a prime example of Project not being able to decide. On one hand it demolishes half of the army 'feel' with changed role of plague and characters, because 'we are not the other game'. On the other it is stuck to some obscure magic item which…

    Favour of Meladys is a very good spell. It is a spell that wins games. It’s the difference between whether your dragon dies or survives the end of the game with 1-2 HP left. I think there are arguments for not casting it early game versus ranged

    Quote from Borneo: “Quote from berti: “Doomblade still is super stupid design ” agreed. The fact you can bring doomblade and potion of swiftness for 380 points is bonkers. Nothing can aproach it. It kills every unit with multy wounds, armor or aegis.…
