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.

    Not complaining, mind you. Just that I've been gone a year and the effort to update is screenshots and cropping...

    So if they aren't current, that's because it wasn't worth the minimal effort required to update them.

    I can't see a sensible reason at a tournament not to run a Bsb in a DE army. The impact of 1 unlucky breaktest/march test at the wrong time can easily cost you a tournament win I think Officer is useful really in 2 BSB configurations: Cheap BSB

    in an aggressive army like DE when the movement is important (especially where you put your fast units) failing a march test is auto lose. BSB is mandatory. In fact I use BSB with gorgon banner precisely to negate the BSB effect. About the "ring" for…
