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.

    @ leclerk, the weak point of Mirrored Scales is that it applies only to the hit roll and only to rolls of 1, so if the attack doesn't roll

    to hit or re-rolls failed hit rolls, mirrored scales becomes rather iffy

    But, yeah, had some Hoarders going up against some EoS Knights with a Priest one time. They really didn't like rebounding great weapons with divine attacks...

    Guys i can"t find the thread to report a mistake on the maps. The field in the map A2 is certainly not 12 inches from the aside, since the house above is already 13.

    The Challange is to make them competetive against Skink Veteran, which is a way better chaff. But they approach shouldnt be to make it even cheaper and pure chaff, instead add some tactical and/or synergical gimmicks. [CHALLENGE ENTRY - SAURIAN SWARMS]

    While we’re talking about unit restrictions, what is with the max 25 models in CG with Flintlocks? Is that just an inheritance from the previous edition of the book, or is it a concern of max unit cost?

    as @Tyranno said, we suffer from some severe overcosting atm... I strongly agree with this. Our 'shooty' units don't do enough damage either to be worth the investment atm (imo) 1 round of shooting + s&s is what you mostly get out of your units before…
