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.

    For me the choice is pretty simpel, OG have that build in off 6, def 6 and agi 6. This means most other elites hit them on 4's while OG hit them on 3's. Agi 6 also means they strike first most of the time or at the same time as charging elites. But…

    Thanks for your sample @SmithF, is a possible balanced list including them. The debate was about how redundant could be the unit compared to OG, the same list, think how could performance if we switch Judicators in the favour of OG, since we think that…

    Yeah one of the mounts should be fixed to avoid the character sniping. Right now it's a bit of a paradox, it's a mount that makes your character defenses WORSE,
