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.

    @Remy77077 I mean, its just nomenclature at the end of the day. For me, the M in MMU refers to threat level rather than number of models. This can be approximated for most units by something like 350-450pts. I find this to be the most useful way to…

    @Morrigan Well the problem is that the 9th age is pretty uninspired. I would better if it take the route of the "game system" I already mention, little lore and more focus on the rules, like the game wa soriginally meant to be.

    (still not commenting in staff role :P ) Of course, the str/ap thing needs to be done well, but I don't think it is anywhere near impossible, conceptually or practically. Particularly as part of a ground-up rework. Another thing I toyed with for O&G was…

    At lot of people have suggested s4ap0 for orcs in the past my reservation about this is this will push spears too much. Of course it depends on what synergies are available else where. I think PW are the classic orc choice, but maybe that just a certain…

    I would not mind Goblins with St2 R3. The opposite of Rats. That would make cunning stratagems like gits nets and stuff more important and would justify a big rework and expansion of such choices. Very immersive.

    So if feral orcs are young orcs, can we get an elderly/senior citizen orc breed? Kinda like: 377c67b343491374f7851b3e2807adca.jpg Except, orcs?
