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.

    Am I the only one who LIKES the new elven kangaroos? I think they look kind of neat. Certainly better than a lot of other stuff GW has put out lately.

    I would have love to see GW suggests kangaroo-riding elves to the Tolkien Trust as part of their Middle Earth game.

    @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.

    I know GW have been trying to make their models break off their bases lately...

    but Kangaroos hopping would be pushing it.

    I failed to roll a 13 on 4 dice to stop that comet. That was just unfortunate not overpowering or unstoppable. It’s also not why I lost that game. DH magic is like putting coins in a piggybank. It doesn’t have an immediate affect but over the course…

    For me DH magic is rather cheap. It should never be great magic since thats not our strength by far. I usually play an anvil (195 pts) and a rune ofwisdom (35 pts usually core pts). For those pts I get magic that usually boosts the combat where I need…

    Price and minimum unit size could solve both problems you mention. Not sure if that's the way to go, but I'm confident the LAB team will find a good solution.

    Do you three dice comet last? if your opponent seems to be saving all their dice for it yes. Note some times I will 4 dice it becuase I won't have a use for 1 dice and you can often get it off 4/5. If opponent has more than 5 dice I wouldn't do this. Do
