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.

    I can't really think of anything else derrived from Sonnenstahl that would make for a language name

    You could name the language after the capital

    if the capital pushed out local dialects

    Hm.

    That's an option, I suppose.

    Asch (like Deutsch) or Ascherisch, Aschisch, Aschauerisch. Doesn't really sound good

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt

    Or just use Sunna

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    DarkSky

    Sunnitisch ;)

    That may have some unwanted associations :P

    You could just call the language "Sunna"? S

    Was für ein Barbar, er konnte nichtmal or ordentliches Sunna sprechen

    That actually sounds pretty solid.

    *not staff post, my opinion* Most standard sized infantry on 20mm bases should be 15-25 models On 25mm bases it should be 10-20 horde armies (goblins, vermin, skellies) should be at 35 - max. easiest way to turn down the damage output is to get rid…

    Well, since it looks like SA is going to stop having a General and BSB in the same model, there is an opening for an army to take up this idea. Since DH should be strong in Discipline, why don't we take it? What do you think? If not for DH, what other…

    For those wanting 6th, I find that 3k points is the sweetspot. If you want you can houserule line and hitting/shooting from 2 ranks away and you basically have it. For me it's the visuals of the army and the tough choices it brings. You need the units…
