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.

    I'd appreciate seeing animosity in some form again, perhaps as a terracotta army style army upgrade. Clan army - everything works up to tournament play standards. Mixed clan army - units compete against another and chaos ensues.

    @ferny Think it’s safe to say that they’d be a very popular option. Core tax is a very real thing, as evidenced by the fact that virtually all competitive lists take minimum core. It would definitely be a welcome change for opening up options in…

    I don't think people realise just how much a new lab changes the book. Look at vs, a completely new army. Would you really want to trade in SE for another army? SE problems are not so large, it's mostly too many restrictions on magic items and overpriced…

    Its not gonna happen on a minor update, but How would it change list building if units of 8+ or 10+ black Knight were core, like dogs can be? Would we see all can armies? Or would we see at least one unit in most lists? Would we see more horse mounted…
