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.

    Have played a bunch more games with the book - here's what I'm hoping to see: Greater Dominion - either free or significantly cheaper or changed to be useful. Reroll 1s ain't it. We've lost some real flexibility which has a lot of knock on effects -…

    IMO the gorgons shouldn’t have Ruthless Efficiency. They are not elves. I’d rather they had more attacks. The other issue I keep finding is lack of weapon options. Shields should be an upgrade option for Dark Riders and Auxiliaries. This will give us…

    More on CG and gunnery teams. I once played a list with three units of 17 and three gunnary teams against DH massed infantry. Filled out the rest of the army with taurukhs, lugars and immortals. It was a mean match up and the CG and gunnery teams shreded…
