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.

    I am not a top player, but I know what to do with my armies. Well...most of the time. And still in most of my DH games I don´t score 10 points. My oponents mostly are at about my level of experience. And still sometimes I loose bad, sometimes I win…

  • Firstly, thanks to everyone for getting their lists in on time. We'll do our best to get them checked and out to you as soon as we can, but there are a lot of them and life is busy, so please bear with us! Cheers, Matt and the AoW Team

    (still not commenting in staff role :P ) Of course, the str/ap thing needs to be done well, but I don't think it is anywhere near impossible, conceptually or practically. Particularly as part of a ground-up rework. Another thing I toyed with for O&G was…
