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.

    if you are looking for an intro game, you can use the VotA discord. if you want a full 4500pts game, you should try the T9A discord (linked above by Remy).

    I don’t like decimation at all, for this particular army. I love the debased copy-rat of avrasi culture, but the rule itself doesn’t make any sense. We have 2 core army rules that directly oppose decimation. Life is cheap represents the swarm

    why as screen? If you run them as screen, you give a possible overrun in the Bastion unit. I run them as tarpit that chaffs units for another turn. but they stay 5 wide for that.

    I agree with peacemaker, decimation is somehow in contradiation with swarm mentality. They flee or they stand...some additional self-kills will not change that. Maybe it really fits better to the OnG. And I also don't feel the Eagle Standard mechanic…

    Still studying the book. Only thing I don't like so far is the Decimation - this comes from the Orcs and Goblin suggestion thread and it's more thematic for that army. Borrowing rules is fine when it fits, but this doesn't fit in my opinion. And it…
