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.

Fellow T9A gamers, it's finally time for the annual balance update. Not a moment too soon! Find all information about it in our news.

The latest issue of the 9th Scroll is available! You can read all about it in the news.

    Quote from TheGodOfCakes: “@Tyranno Well that was insightful! For the Vassal Cavalry (and other Cav I guess), where'd you go to get mounted legs? Or do you make them yourself? I have Wolf Riders on Fenrisian Wolves, but they're the old GW Goblin riders…

    Replied to the thread VS LAB Mechanics Phase Update 7.

    Interesting approach. The extra models are essentially buying additional wounds for the unit and a larger footprint.

    Replied to the thread DH Balancing patch final round.

    Permanent but ending instantly after activated and lasting one turn. So in a 6 turn game you can maybe get off three and in return you will potentially kill off each magic phase where you cast it. Not a great deal when you need to invest so much into DH

    These are summaries from a couple of friendly games played on UBII. Nether my opponent nor I were expecting to write batreps for them, so we didn’t take screenshots or notes. But, they happen to be the last 2 matchups left on the playtesting matrix,…

    Cool! For now there is inf with Spears & shields, hw/s and bows. And thats just in the Infernal Dwarves book, so there should be a broad interest for those. We also really need options for 4 hobgobs carrying a throne-ish thing (Seat of authority). If…

    Hmm, it doesn’t look like it would be too hard to add a couple different versions. Edit: I’m going for lamellar armor anyway, which is very “Mongol” as well. I’ll start by messing around with the different heads and see how much that alone…

    oh yes, i enjoyed the feedback a lot - i guess that's what made me so "engaged" : D rzmoz had a lot of very good points, in my opinion precisely because he has played both with total beginners and with 4500pts-players. that's precisely the challenge of
