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.

    Not really T9A, but there's a guy on ebay selling a metal thunderhawk (the original) which is totally unassembled or painted. Too rich for me, but it's pretty cool

    it it was universal MR, then it would be great. You want your best unit immune to blasting and debuffs? cool, then you forgo buffing too. MR4 against grave calls and hellfire just makes them uncastable (unless you want to 5 dice and kill your wizard)

    Quote from WastelandWarrior: “Anything that might deter everyone from always having mr4 on their best stuff for 45 measly points gets my vote ” This. Just making MR follow the normal +2 to -2 limitation would remove this issue.
