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 came looking for fun, but stayed for the balance :D I wouldnt mind a dumbed down version of t9a for myself to be honest, though the more I play the more I get used to those layers upon layers upon more layers of rules.

    That way lays infinite regression and misery. As the marshall, why are you telling the cannon what to fire at? That's for the artillery officer to decide. Why are you maneuvering the cavalry? Just tell them which flank they should deploy on, then roll if…

    Yes. If we have Stomp (1) and Stomp (D6) we have that situation from rule discription: If X is the result of a dice roll, you may instead choose which version to use (before rolling any dice). If we have Stomp (1) and Stomp (2), than we apply: If the…

    This thread is not really enjoyable to read nor does it encourage for people to write milder opinions than extremes due to a small number of extremely aggressive posters. Could you tone it down a little?

    one problem of failing a panic test is that the consequences are just too harsh. You not only cannot act, you also move in wrong direction (usually) and have to rally again with risk of fleeing further or being pushed by long charges. So options could…

    lol, it thought it was really cool and it does seem strong but it's not very strong once we look at the strength and ap of most stuff in the game. It mostly just re-assigns the typical target efficiency(RPS) Game design wise it's actually a good…

    So basically some of you are saying that T9A is dry, simplified for tournament crowd, while others say that there is too many special rules to keep up. Something doesn't add up.
