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.

    So, I didnt get it. Is it new directive from RT, following up on the "complexity reduction" procedure? Or is it your own initiative? If its the second, I urge you to drop this. Putting Succubi on Thresher is really bad idea from many points of view:…

    Its a difficault rule. It does give some flavour, but the the rule is to unwieldy imo. Its a pure negative rule that has lost me quite some games just cos disc 9 rr is not enough. I myself never liked it (neighter liked animosity). Flavourfull as they…

    oo I hope they keep stupidity! One of the most flavourfull rules imo.

    Quote from joob: “The closing bracket for what's part of Devastating Charge is missing - I suppose Devastating Charge should only concern the additional attacks ” Correct. Will be fixed in the next update.

    just nerf the shooting and everything is the fat rat army seems fair, and awesome fluff wise, they might even be a little undertuned in terms of combat, and if you gonna nerf their shooting their magic might get ABIT lack lustered as well but ps: nerf…

    Is it too late to join this league? I'm working on quite a bit of my army getting ready for Red River Rumble and finished these guys last month. This month going to get quite a bit more done! the-ninth-age.com/community/in…5a328ccb56cc417fbbfeb4def

    Yes, it needed nerfs... and it did, to the elements that over-performed last year. Blackfurs, doomblade, brutes, boosted wheel turns etc. all got a little worse. The buffs were to other elements that didn't feature heavily on 2022 lists. Not all - for…

    That's exactly why I said it's not worth changing the rules of the game just to accommodate the mistakes made in one LAB. R2 simply isn't enough of a downside to balance out LiC and it never will be unless the points costs reach levels that would be…

    What lists are not including some S5 or S6 units? Nearly everyone is investing in more expensive options that are a complete waste or even a hindrance against VS, that's completely different than one or two units doing well into some kind of archetype.…
