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.

    So Adv 4/Mar 12 on Lugars was put in during the 2.0 rework. It was to make them more like Kadims and less like Seekers. That design trend extended onwards; now the two units (Lugars and Seekers) have almost nothing in common beyond armaments.

    There are racial traits - elves are limited to R3, dwarves have M3 and triple march, etc. The difference is that the first book of a race is not going to shoehorn exactly how a future book of a race acts. That way the traits of the races are set, but…

    good way to do it. popular choice wins one imagines it would be sensible community investment legitimate and frees top brass of being accused of making a poor call
