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 suggesting that belief is misguided when viewed in the context of the army. Ryma have +1 to hit and Aegis against flaming, Resplendents have ranks (for breaking steadfast, not rank bonuses) and Aegis 6+(5+). Crucially they also get full attacks from…

    I posted this internally after I casually mentioned it to @Mr.Owl on the phone the other day. I figure it’s worth sharing here too. When the project began there were many who said we wouldn't last, couldn't do it, and the whole thing would fizzle out.…

    Thanks @Idum for the feedback! Glad you like it, I took some inspiration from your work :) Seems I have some typos and small mistakes to sort out. Good catches! The kaiju are based on the sphinxes from UD and I took the point costs from there. I made…

    'ello! So I've been wanting to try my hand at a hombrew (pun, not typo) for a while. The inspiration for this is the samurai models I'm using for my terracotta army for UD. I really like the terracotta army for UD but it lacks a proper flavour for the…

    Quote from WastelandWarrior: “Those old chariots look good with the beefy horses and whipmeister dudes! ” Still have few Chariots in my stash and I am intending to change their tows as well. Thinking of Karkas or those new big horsies.

    I belive the point be alluded to here is more than many KoE players would rather have Ryma Knights than Resplendent. The two are very comparable but Ryma have a slight edge. It's funny because most HBE players think Ryma are terrible except as scoring

    The prince on horse thing is rather easy to solve. Just don´t give the charakter horse Armor +2 and instead just +1. Suddenly raptor gets more interesting with sacrificing speed for it. Of course price of the horse needs an adjustment then too.
