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.

    As I said it would be a quality of life improvement for deployment and placement. That's basically the same thing you're saying but in a positive perspective. You already get to shoot 25 bolts strength 4 in stand and and shoot. It wouldn't change that…

    @bendaffurn We like to use the terminology of eliteness. Which basically says how good should an individual model be. Ogres, warriors for example are some of the most elite. This also generally reflected in the cost per model, but not always as…

    On the UD forum somebody said that the Queens Companion got the 3 attacks for the whole unit: Queen’s Companion 65 pts 0–2 Honours per Army. Models on foot only. The model’s unit gains Quick to Fire, and when shooting with a Longbow without Weapon
