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.

    I'm just wondering, are there rules that I can use my Krampus miniature for? He's 69mm high, I think he fits on a 40x40 base.

    a) I really need a picture for that model and b) Depening on how it looks like: Many Monstrous Characters or Mounted Characters could work, worst case as a unit filler?

    For DL, it could be almost anything...

    Why everyone want to change something that is currently working and reaching average power level? Leave the CK (including Karkadans) alone. - no buff (+1W, +1T, impact hits, etc...) - no debuff (-1 AS, -2WS off or Def, etc...) Leave the exalted alone…

    Looking for some clarifications on the changes to TP. ACS mentioned that RT says DE should have limited lateral movement. That doesn’t mean no lateral movement. So my question is what non-single combat units remain that have good lateral movement? Dread

    I think the new communal bond is a great decision, SA does have a history of having the best Dis after undead and demons, it already got tuned down from CB 10 in the beginning to CB 9 and to CB 8. Now wide playstyles and solitary units are still a thing…
