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.

    Eru, thanks for the comments. How 1. to do?

    Watch "pro" game replays, crunch the stats before doing every move to weigh the risks, don't drink too much before the game starts, and study the rules.

    I have to admit that I have found a positive correlation between my level of drunkenness and my tournament results

    btw Mic, what do you think, why my alcohol shelf contains almost exclusively scotch? I WANT to assume you Scots are drunk all the time. Otherwise it is not explainable to me how you have discovered the crown of enjoyment here :)

    I think that giving insight on army performance can be done in multiple ways. Right now our dataset can be analyzed on all attributes we have ranging from army to a single game. Also the character of the game like did army x win or did army x has that…

    I just build my armies to go second and deploy accordingly for counter. Going 1st is HUGE. It really matters, especially with 2 aggressive armies lined up against each other or a heavy shooting. I’ve just adjusted and build for going second.

    The one thing that would actually make this thread interesting to me would be point averages for players going first vs point averages for players going second. If that discrepancy is big, then 'yes' going first is "OP", otherwise it just becomes a sea…

    This guaranteed going first is a thing I don´t like. Limiting the bonus to 2 or 3 making it a more open roll, would in my opinion make up for some more interesting games.
