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.

    another question: there was a short rhyme, I believe in one of the scrolls, about the creation of the inferno. I'd like to avoid having to go through all scroll pages to find it, does someone have it handy by chance?

    I would like to add that adding fearless would fit BG very well in my opinion. I mean, seeing the profile and looking at historical grenadiers, they should be much more courageous than their smaller and weaker brothers. On top of that they are a few…

    What if you leave Callous as it is but all units that fire into combat gain +1Aim? It's a boost to shooting on the condition of killing own models. From the point of view of the background, you can say that the easier to hit a larger group of people.…

    What is the designed purpose of the grenadiers? I see a problem with callous in that several units are designed to be used with that rule in mind and pay for that but can’t utilize this efficiently (as we see from the math on the grenadiers). So why not…

    For me it would be: 1. Tusker cav, ppm/starting cost, particularly for models without any weapons 2. Gyengett banner: it's a fine cost for the power of the banner, but it doesn't see play because of the non core restriction. It competes with discipline…
