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.

    @Eldan you aren't alone. I like the kangaroos. I would have put the elves mounted in the pouch, but that'sjust me

    I mean, they aren't even *that* Kangaroo-like. For starters, from the leg position we can clearly see that they run instead of hopping.

    The ammount of Vassals is really high. On the other hand (if I counted right, maybe I missread something), just 1 flintlock axe unir makes me sad, specially since when I think it is our most iconic unit. Also, I think all Infernal Warriors are Ziggurath…

    I think the main feedback to give here is... 'Is this a cool way to use our rat swarms, and do we like this type of summoning spell'. Range, value, damage can always be adjusted. I like this way to use our rat swarm models + it leaves space for giant

    Love the concept, very much dislike the current version. It’s a super complicated, worse, and inconsistent version of swarm of insects. Worth noting that you summon it 12 away, then pass the turn, it grows and sits there, then your turn again, it grows.…

    Honestly? I don't like it. It is a wall of text to basically say here is a slow swarm of insects. So at the same time it is both super complex, and rather trivial in what it does. Some quick math says If I cast this spell, wait 3 player turns and run…
