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'm just wondering, are there rules that I can use my Krampus miniature for? He's 69mm high, I think he fits on a 40x40 base.

    a) I really need a picture for that model and b) Depening on how it looks like: Many Monstrous Characters or Mounted Characters could work, worst case as a unit filler?

    I was fine with 18+3 inches threat range, as it provided a clear counter to the otherwise hard to face 2+ to hit. I would also be ok with always 3+ or 4+ aim, with appropriate s/ap and extra rules to achieve the desired cost.

    I foresee Behemoth moving into a unit entry proper in 3.0. Like the Young Dragon in HBE was. It’s an odd unit. I always forget about it in our book. But when you see an actual chaos mammoth model on the table, it’s a thrill.

    Okay, without seeing the changes on GDs, this sounds really bad. This would be different if the rule of re-rolling 1s for aegis would also be applied to GDs, too. To be honest, I would actually really like it. Last, I want to say that I really don't…
