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.

    Anecdotal on the Volcano Titan: I took it to one tournament (5 games, 4500pts) and two of my games were against ID. Both of my ID opponents admitted they considered my Volcano Titan "the easy thing to deal with".

    Congrats on SA getting 2nd at the ETC! 6-0 with 104 BPs, zing! Perhaps SA don't need a new book, winning the ESC and getting second at ETC (kidding)! With Raptor Riders and everything! Ribbit. Kind regards, Axiem

    Why do people think Fiends need design changes? There were times when they were very popular. Nothing changed since then but the price. And two Scourges are definitely not ok.

    In my humble opinion a KotSG unit should become a parent unit if a knight commander mounted on a young griffith joins it. About the stank wombat is right, its to expensive to be a super weapon.

    Quote from Crazydwarf: “curious, you think shooty titan is fixable with points? ” The real question is if RT will allow the points to drop low enough. Even though internal balance indicates the monster needs to drop very low in points, you get a problem…

    sure, I can give it a try, although i would also argue, that if a unit drops like 30-40% in price, they would probably see more play (atleast tried) That does not mean its overall design is acceptable, in my eyes tho. With all that said, I still feel…

    As above; 1) gunnery teams - just not worth the disadvantages to combat. 2) volcano Titan - poor shooting abilities combined with mediocre close combat abilities. Maybe points could solve this? Or, as said, allow the engineer to help it out (possible
