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.

    20 years ago this day, I received my first Warhammer mini. It was a Dark Rider, I was in bed in hospital after my appendicitis got cut, and i fully occupied the several days that i spent there by reading the rules of WHFB5

    In a text I'm translating right now : « Commander, you did not enter anything in the body. » But the next sentence is « This email cannot be sent! » – context is everything !!!!!!!

    and the next line is « Commander, you did not enter anything in the subject.” rofl

    the thing is, it's the text for a game that is written in very bad English, and I have to make sense out of it and try and translate it in a not so bad French. But the customer is Chinese and doesn't understand my questions, so I just improvise.

    They are unit that is herded to combat, but we streamlined the unit so it does not need the Herder units next to it. But that scene is essentially what makhar would do to break EoS (Their loving neighbour) battleline with fences and big infantry
