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.

    Wow orcs are very human like (in why they do things, some lust for power, others will do anything to protect their family etc.). I think it makes sense in that world as the back bone of one of two factions. I wouldn't like it for 9th though and I don't…

    I believe decisions at this stage should be more strategic. I mean army strengths and weaknesses. It is ok if we are supposed to be weak at leadership, worst war machines, average to weak magic, weak scoring, etc. It fits with a low quality army but…

    I think we can all agree that SE woes can be fixed with some small-handed tweaks compared to other "low tier" armies but in the current development situation those can only happen in a LAB, or so I understand. No matter how small the rework we want,…

    I completely disagree. 5 attacks each per model? Ability to go Greed and in my case go GW and have the potential for 13 OS 6 S6 and 6 OS3 S5 attacks for a 500ish point fast, scoring unit is fantastic. Can take charges from most units and shrug it off.…
