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.

    Speaking of Discord, is there like a standard looking for match place?

    if you are looking for an intro game, you can use the VotA discord. if you want a full 4500pts game, you should try the T9A discord (linked above by Remy).

    Actually, those four factions are mainly a thing in AoS. The classic alliances in WHF were Order, Chaos (or destruction) and Neutral, and they never really made much sense. Orcs allied with chaos was weird, undead allied with chaos was even weirder. Vlad

    That said - I think swarm factions should be more about hexes and less about buffs. Start by removing access to magic banners?
