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.

    That aesthetics clash is why I believe many people bailed when AoS dropped, fwiw.

    Quote from Arienai: “Does anyone have a good experience with flint lock axes and how to use them effectively? ” No. Absolutely not :) I love the book but I think it's insane that we have to pay for Flintlocks. All they are is a static 18" gun... that's…

    tried a 21 unit of flintlocks, but i just cant justify their cost vs use... Shooting is below average and they die to fast, to put up a decent fight (and only AP 1).. Overcosted.. would be useable if we could march & shoot with them

    It is pretty obvious that a) koe are overperforming b) the book lacks internal balance. The flavour of the book is cool but some things like orisons and free healing need a hit from the nerf bat. And i bet they'll get it.

    iirc, Shamanism is more for armies that have a strong connection with animals. Beast Herds, O&G, Ogres, Makhar etc etc.

    I really don't understand how someone can voluntarily accept that his army is only competitive if he picks a certain upgrade. An upgrade that should somehow be rare according to lore, but still shows up in every single yet so small army. In my opinion…

    I would rather say pick rate is on 12 out of 16 possible choices on lords. So 75% And the rest of the 4 also include a sainted in their lists propably. Your assumption would be true when there could be more than 1 sainted per army. When sainted is in…
