Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age

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.

    It doesn't look like the carno can't charge the warriors into their front without rotating them from the shown perspective

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lich King

    If the warriors have to be rotated so that the tauro can't charge into their front, the tauro has to perform a failed charge move because of 11.C. He has to charge the unit in the facing that was determined when declaring the charge

    vengeance seekers say they never wound on a worse than a 4+ but scarification says a unit can onkly get wounded on a 5+ what take priority?

    Priority of modifiers, page 17 paragraph 6.C

    Regarding the current tournament meta: Are things still revolving around big blocks and bunkers or are there working MSU lists?

    I'd even say there are more MSU concepts than deathstar/big blocks and so on

    Suddenly realised that Thomas the Bard's “Fairy Tales”, Tome 2 is about the Highborn Elves, guessing Tome 3 is on Dread Elves. Does that mean we'll get Tome 3 published before Tome 2 ? :D

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lich King

    Well, wasn't LotR published before the Hobbit in cínemas? Things always stay the same. First you publish the badass product and if people liked it, then you publish the copy&paste boring child's story sh*t

    Sorry, not sorry @ Highborn Elves :D

    i actually found the Hobbit more exiciting than LotR :)

    Whaaatt? You're what one would call a statistical error then ;) :D

    the error lies in liking the LOTR or Hobbit movies... books FTW!

    Well, my time is limited. Too much stuff that deserves to be read. But too less time to do so. Watching movies is at least a good compromise for me

    Awesome. Yea I probably won’t pull the trigger until the book comes out of beta, and I plan to double up a lot of units as other things from other models, I’m trying to keep with a low model count so I don’t fill another closet with toy soldiers ha!

    I'm inclined to say that RAW the spell effect of breath of corruption is "gaining a breath attack", not "performing a breath attack". Based on that, the cursed medallion should allow rerolls to-wound for breath attacks from spells just like from other…

    Well it's still in beta with units still getting revamped. Maybe when it gets to the final tweaking stages there will be units that can stand out. Like the bloat flies were super bad, then super good, now kinda average and in need of a boost. A more

    You've been cheated then. The 15" march banner is infantry only, you cant use it with the Pendulum. The other restriction on the Lightning rod is that its Vermin guard or BSB only which restricts its uses, I'd love to take it on a big unit of clanrats…
