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.

    @RHworldbuilding Sounds like you don't understand GW prices....$400-600 should be about the target for your initial 40k army that's pretty bare. T9A is much more expensive than 40k (if using GW models). For T9A, the issue is model count. 10 GW dwarves is $50, 10 FW chaos dwarves is $70.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    So the minimum unit size for ID core being 20 models, it's $140 for a bare minimum unit of Infernal Warriors

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    And that cost doesn't include having to buy the square bases separately

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    So, yeah, that's one of the big appeals to your papercraft armies.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Chronocide

    In 40k or AoS most of the factions have a low model count option. It's still $400-600, but you could play at that level. T9A with GW models is incredibly pricey

    Wow...all is way too expensive, but it's oop GW sets in shrink wrap from from some nerds estate sale: ebay.com/sch/capefeargames/m.h…nc&_trksid=p2047675.l2562

    Ok fine then give us more reliable magic to do more reliable damage aahhh! Wait. Not for KoE, that’s not our thing. But supposedly expert cavalry is and an expert shouldn't rely on magic

    +1 to @Folomo Reliable damage is more important than more potential damage. The average being 5 is great. The dispersion being 0-12 is not, should be more like 3-9. BU i think the best targets for our cavalry are bad. Our cavalry is good vs elite and…
