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.

    @Eldan you aren't alone. I like the kangaroos. I would have put the elves mounted in the pouch, but that'sjust me

    I mean, they aren't even *that* Kangaroo-like. For starters, from the leg position we can clearly see that they run instead of hopping.

    @Monsieur Ramior then it doesn’t matter, but I think you’re misunderstanding me. Heroic proportions are a design choice. And GW actually hasn’t been too crazy about heroic proportions with vampires for a little while now that I look through their models

    I would never put a general or BSB on a Wyvern. That sounds like a really dumb move. O&G need general and BSB. The cost to increase your bubble 6" is more than offset by making them a 4 wound single model with flying and towering prescence so all…

    Quote from Monsieur Ramior: “@Marcos24 Alien in the sens of it's doens't look like something it exist in reality. ” Most vampire lore though says that they are basically just humans that are cursed. That means they should have human proportions.

    Thanks for the effort. My two cents: - Dont think carno is still a great choice for 200pts. Still overcosted. I dont thibk being able to fill that combination of models is something that great to make carno see a lot of play. - Raptor spirit need to…
