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 think the Orison mechanic is very flavourful and interesting. Power level gets looked at in PT and the whole point of public alpha is to help iterate things like power levels. Grand job LAB TT.

    Sure Koe players will enjoy it. :) Wasn't the additional banner also a replacement for the lost rank bonus? So for halving the normal bonus of 4 to two there needs to be an additional huge increase in power? On top of some additional devastating

    Quote from Cam: “Incomplete will give a wrong view of the picks. ” So what do you propose then? Include every single list in the existence with limited human resources or do nothing at all? You work with what you have, whatever it is.
