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.

    @JimMorr hopefully you will be able to see a positive swing back soon and we can continue the great work that you have paved the way for. I personally joined the EoW team for just that and it was your passion that made me want to have a positive impact…

    Game is dying because I believe most players are Warhammer players at the end of the day and the Labs aren’t Warhammer. If Old World will be any good I think to many players will switch which will be the deathblow. I for once am jealous how popular…

    After a topsy-turvy week of being sick, anxiety over what kind of sick it was, being quarantined, and then getting (thankfully) negative results back; it has taken me longer to get pictures of my recent conversion: a Dwarven Holds Anvil of Power!

    Yeah, i have the same feeling. They are a problem for some lists, but when you need to play with them... you have better choices. The question is, if you want to pick only 1 Engine... wich is your best choice?

    I've been playing double Infernal Engine and I've come to the conclusion that it isn't actually very good. They are very expensive for what they do and with somewhat short ranges they don't do that much. They are ok in combat but not amazing, somewhat…
