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.

    But a locked meme thread still get's a frowny face, even when locked for good reasons.

    Quote from Nemeroth: “I’m just looking forward to some cool new models that fit on square bases but you and I know their rule set will be utter pish. ” I'm looking forward to their 28.5mm and 32mm square bases too!

    Likely to seriously inhibit growth. There was a major gap that 9th filled. With Old World I think a lot of casual players will look there first as it is supported by the largest company. I think 9th will just become more of a niche game for tournament…

    Ok.... The original problem you wanted to solve was that fighting with a peasant unit was bad for the knights because they bleed to much CR and the knights break from the list combat. There is almost no chance of getting a disengage rule that would allow…

    I am interested in heavy cav wolves? My imagination of the load wolves can carry is that it would be limited, but I'm all thumbs up for beast master goblins. The idea my brain jumps to is a monstrous cav with like 2-3 goblins on it. Think like a rhino…

    The DH rune system is too complex. There are several paragraphs of rules and in the interest of simplicity they should be removed. Dwarfs can use the normal arcane compendium items. Grudges too while you're at it. That's seconds of my life to read that…

    Quote from Marcos24: “Quote from echoCTRL: “If you only need to make up a difference of 2-4 points in CR why don't we just give Peasants an Aegis 6+. And then it is an important combat so cast a spell on someone. There you go, you are winning. ” Well…
