Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age

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 think the new shooting Attack is fine but it should be usable in melee too. Give the stalkers an additional attack, maybe strength 5 and autonomous an the unit will be playable.

    I'm still kinda shell-shocked by the update. I mean, I was expecting a nerf. But the overwhelming kick in the face this book has received actually surprises me. With multiple things, it's a double, triple, quadruple nerf or more. Take the lord: -…

    Why should anybody miss these stupid spells. Only one left in the game andbecause of reasons it took ages to bring it a little bit down in power level, and it is still a quite powerful spell who can win games alone. Wrath of god.

    I can't believe this conspiracy thing is still ongoing, and that there were even attempts to justify it scientifically. Let's play your game. You have two scenarios: -an oligarchy of game designers and 15 sub-forum are conspiring against the DH

    Couldn't find clear answer for this on the rules: Off8 + lightning reflexes v Deff4 + distracting. Does it hit on 2+ or 3+? S6 with +1 to wound v T3 with -1 to wound. Does it wound on 2+ or 3+?
