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 also would like some vampiric mechanic where if you succeed your vampiric roll against "living" enemies you get buffs, or maybe if you manage to kill a character and succeed your roll you can use him for a turn or two as a thrall or something.

    I haven't seen any 9th age lore, but in conventional lore I believe the raising is more associated with necromancers than vampires. Maybe removing the ability of vampires to raise( with the exception of certain bloodlines) would justify lower points…

    Depends entirely on where you live and who is running the tournament. I know I like to include them in events I run, but other local TO's aren't keen. I'd just ask around locally and see what the norm is.
