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.

    But yes, doing actual consistent languages give it all more bottom. Like Tolkien did. Presumably, the Sonnstahl language is German with modifications.

    "Sonnish" may sound right to a German speaker but it's off to an English speaker.

    I can't really think of anything else derrived from Sonnenstahl that would make for a language name

    Definitely not going to use Sonnsprache in the German translation, anyway

    You could name the language after the capital

    if the capital pushed out local dialects

    Hm.

    That's an option, I suppose.

    Asch (like Deutsch) or Ascherisch, Aschisch, Aschauerisch. Doesn't really sound good

    Or just use Sunna

    That may have some unwanted associations :P

    Yeah, from a design perspective PI kind of limits what can be done with an army.

    narrowing an army to fit more into how the community wants it is a good reason to do it. You are correct that not every one is happy by changes. But i think it is an important distinction between changes and changes with No good reason.
