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.

    And spain wanted more penalties for poland, so they started doing capitan votes to overrule judges ;)

    and what was it all about the photos? who knows what happened there?

    maybe a weird question: is there a possibility to hide forum posts fro mspecific users? does "block" work or is it just for private messages? [no offense was done, just personal feelings]

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    block is for personal messages. If they are making inappropriate posts out in the open, report fucntion

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    Or you could try asking them directly to change a post because it bothers you. Some would, if you explain it.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    Sometimes, though, just walking away (unsubscribing from the thread) is the answer

    thanks for the answer!

    Names are very important to how we understand fantasy. If you’re playing D&D and you kill a necromancer, open a box and get a +1 sword, that’s cool. But if you kill Ezekiel Silverheart, the necromancer and find “The Silverheart” a family heirloom…

    I’ll point it out here as well: - 9 Books have been flagged for needing to reduce complexity; - That is the majority. Don’t feel that ID are being targeted. Complexity, across the game, is being targeted. Kind regards, Axiem
