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.

    Quite simple. If you are taken by slavers from a village on ocean cost you probably were cultivating rice. You know water fields as the best way to grow crops. Now they give you crops and order you to work

    I also don't understand where is the racist undertone in that. Isn't it a fact that rice is mostly produced in asian countries? How is making a joke out of a that racist?

    So you try your best with the technique you know works best. Water fields. This is the problem of supervisors not people working. DE are on this picture stupid, because they cannot use slaves they own

    So I confess to being racist towards DE. Who are based on South American plantation owners... so I should probably apologize them... or KKK will come for me

    This might be a language issue but to me corn =maize in seed form. So what you wrote in the meme basically read: We give them seeds for one plant but because they are asian we end up with rice.

    As intended mental shortcut by to DE talking: in fact they ended with crops being grown as rice. Which must fail if it was not rice.

    @Niebieski - "Chinese can only grow rice", thats not a lazy racial stereotype?

    DE are sea riders. Where do they take slaves from...?

    @Cam I guess if you put it like that it does sound racist I just did not get this impression on my own.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Niebieski

    Is it any different than making a joke that a slave from KoE would be only able to grow simplest crops racist as well?

    actually rice is not as prevalent as one may think in China, it is mostly limited to the southern part (/trivia)

    Why did my post get deleted? It is not true that i responded to deleted post.

    On the ocean coast, in river deltas. However the elves are talking again from their perspective. For them 'Augera' is where their ships go...

    but well... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Idum

    anyway if their land allows it, they may as well grow rice, that's a solid food source

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Idum

    (i.e. elves are free to cultivate it if they like, I won't blame them :D)

    Haha perhaps. Well shields are probably the easiest thing to make for me (and weapons) so I can definitely offer a wide variety. Though keep in mind I am deliberately trying to step further away from the GW look, slightly similar is ok, hence the…

    Whamme is right. Bigger creatures are slower. Sauropods could only lift one leg off the ground at a time for example. That has to impede their ability to move.
