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.

Fellow T9A gamers, it's finally time for the annual balance update. Not a moment too soon! Find all information about it in our news.

The latest issue of the 9th Scroll is available! You can read all about it in the news.

    Does that mean you can make your unit appear on the battlefield as a column and swiftreform then move by a number of " equal to your advance move? As long as your unit is within march distance of the edge at the end of the phase?

    All I'm saying, having ranged weapons for a 20-strong regiment without rules that'll allow them to be used is gonna be a hard sell... I saw @The Kremlin choosing a unit with BB and GW, interested in how that'll turn out :)

    Replied to the thread KoE LAB: Ideas for rules and mechanics.

    Well, with three ranks of knights (Aspirant, Realm, Sworn) that'd cover most of it. Give the Sworn Knights (name pending - stats somewhere between Inner Circle and Chosen) stats close to Chosen Knights, but maybe not quite as good, using Lance formation
