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.

    KoRn is my favourite band for years now. I've discovered them at the age of 14 I'd say. Have started with The Untouchables, then went back to their first albums

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Every album has been a break in their style. But I couldn't say one album was their best/worse till now. They were just different

    I remember asking somebody at school if they liked KoRn, and they replied "Hell yeah, Gianna Michaels is my favourite"

    BtW I've just discovered that In Flames is a Swedish band. Been listening to them for like 15 years now, but was expecting them to be Americans :D

    @micdicdoc you better don't make me googling for Gianna Michaels while my GF is standing next to me. Well...she really doesn't care, but we were truely awaiting a song or something we might have missed :D Don't get the connection to KoRn though :P

    beasts is a medium army, what happens is that a few very good players like Caal or Simthf take it and put a lot of 20s, but they don't do it thanks to beasts, they would do it with any army, with what gives the feeling that beasts are very good and when…

    Actually one of the toughest games I had with the new ID was against SE. With a good list, playing well and deploying well SE can play a fair game against ID. Actually I believe that the situation for them was much worse with the old slim book.
