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.

    I mostly like it because it is the greatest D&D monster of all time: gelatinous cube.

    Quote from Ironclad: “yes all runes and characters should be cheeper, because they all have on foot only (M3). Raise DS base cost or make it a payable upgrade for him to have access to magic weapons. Make king 0-1, there can only be one king anyway. And…

    That’s a pretty solid list, though I’d sort of blend points 1+2 since it falls under the umbrella of “cumbersome/static shooting”. And point 4, I think, is a misinterpretation: the army doesn’t need more toys, it needs more tools. This can be…

    Definitely there are others armies that need it more than O&G.

    its good to see progress but it falls a bit flat for me. Probably missing context, BG and everything else but it kinda seems an arbitrary choice based more in personal preferences than in need. There are other books with significant issues that really…

    Great news and just in time, I commissioned Kev Adams to sculpt a new largs Orc Warlord on wyvern for production, so please, make that thing great, and maybe show what some orc and goblin symbols are so we can put some on the beasts armor.

    Overall I finished 11th/16, with 45/100 TPs. Not a great score for sure. Breaking it down in my mind: G1 (DH)- Scary, swingy, difficult matchup to play. G2 (VC)- Armyswap fail on my part. G3 (ID)- Scary, swingy, difficult matchup to play. G4 (SE)- Fair…

    Yeah, goes without saying we'd need to leave plenty of blanks for artistic freedom. But looking forward to official colours to tie to the setting. Needn't just be empire, could be for KoE or any of the other factions, I just referenced empire cos of the…

    Completely agree with all that is said on Knights of the Court - if as a result we get a slot back, can we have it to restore our third unit of CC foot crusaders/pilgrims/foot sergeants or whatever that sit between the lowborn levy and the foot knights…

    Yeah. For me I think bodyguard in core can be way too powerful, because even if the unit is losing, you’re not necessarily losing the battle, they will be a very tough anvil with a powerful lord that will still hurt the other unit. But in special it…
