Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age

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.

Fellow T9A gamers, it's finally time for the annual balance update. Not a moment too soon! Find all information about it in our news.

The latest issue of the 9th Scroll is available! You can read all about it in the news.

    Looking good! I get my isopropanol from a local pharmacy. Maybe that is an option for you aswell? That way you don't have to wait for it to be posted to you.

    I honestly don't see how the Barbarian Chief can be seen a dud. He is one of the best bang for buck characters in the game. I think he only gets overlooked as it becomes hard to fit in a auxiliary character over the mandatory magic and cowboys.

    (imo) Visually, the lance formation needs to look like something that has the heft and presence to actually punch into an enemy formation. You generate that by having enough models to not be massively outnumbered but also by being longer than you are…

    We actually tried to create three different places to use old Dancers. 1. Handlers of Beasts in Thunderpavk and Monsters 2. Beast Breakers 3. Temple Militants. We believe that gives a place to use models which used to symbolize Dancers of Yema.

    Here's my thoughts after a year of using the Beasts. 1. Have to agree with everyone arguing for PW to go down in points for the Wildhorn. Shields are a better option but it just leads to a defensive Wildhorn block. I would rather see more aggro wild…
