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.

    If complexity is the issue, what about letting warhorses make supporting attacks when the knights charge? That would give some extra attacks to help with statistical dispersion, which I would tend to agree is a problem, but also requires minimal surgery…

    You are both (purposely?) misinterpreting what Just_Flo said He just said that the only rules changes in the game in the update were nerfs. He did not say or imply that HBE would be receiving any of these.

    For me, the horse could attack with support attacks, even harnessed, it wouldn't be game breaker, but give a little help for the charge Eventually, see if the aspirants could have two support attacks to truly take advantage of their frenzy That's my 2…
