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.

    And given the wording I guess they aim at "passionate people happy to be part of the company", aka. low wage + be a yes-man + don't count your hours

    No qualifications is really weird. Not even "has worked in game design before"

    main qualification is: caring *little* enough to endure the profit-driven abuses on ruleswriting.

    I mean, I would accept no previous experience in game design for an entry level position. Junior AoS Game Design or something like that. But for the LEAD position? Seriously?

    how hard is it to design AoS? everything rolls a 3+ then a 4+ and you remove models. its not that hard.

    I am afraid you underestimate the design challenge. It is more like

    "Propose rules for flying fish which will result in 20-30k sets sold. Remember to leave design space for elves on canguro though"

    Honestly, I'm surprised they haven't tried selling their models as lootboxes at this point.

    It is

    Though the models in question are push-fit kits of 1 model that is actually really good quality and they are something GW markets to people in Japan because it doesn't take much space.

    from an external perspective, the book is looking much nicer to play against, but I do agree that there is probably too much restriction on the FOI balance. Given the trade offs, I'd say that GTs are FOI1 worthy but I would want to limit things like…
