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 really like the Orison system, and I'm looking forward to see how I can incorporate it into my lists and builds. However, I feel that the one phase limitation of the +1 to hit option (which I imagine will be the most used/impactful) could be argued to…

    Orders are no where near as strong as these Orisons… Orders are used to make EoS’s infantry functional, and there are indeed counters to Orders (snipe the R3 character with miserable combat stats) and buff wagons (it’s a chariot ffs). Orisons on the…

    @GiladisI believe I suggested this somewhere. You can make the Holdstone count as an objective marker/zone. Then DH can win mission from the corner so non-games tip to 13-7 in their favour. It's no different to the other mechanics that do the same thing…

    Something to consider. - Every unit of Knights lost static combat result bonuses. - Every unit of knights has access to +1 to hit when they need it if you build your list in a way that Orison users are abundant and spread out enough. In my experience…
