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.

    So both fading flame and new recruit are already implementing a elo/mmr type system giving a way to quantify player skill. Our dataset should be able to predict the meta. The misc category would be quite hard to quantify though not impossible. So this…

    forest goblin raiders are the best choice for this generally because they are a bit more deadly, and can scout. However, you should not be trying to make them in the same way as a unit of knights, and having heroes in a unit of goblins in more a…

    Replied to the thread Help for a 2000 points list against WDG.

    Post
    You might not be aware, that the 2000pt or 2250pt list in 8th edition is equivalent to 4500pts in ninth age. This is really the full sized list.
  • My 2 cents on the minotaur warlord is he needs a bigger price drop for me to consider him again. I may take a GW version now he's cheaper, with the sole job of blocking up tough targets, but that would be a corner case application. Lack of swiftstride
