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.

    @Squirrelloid it can't be healthy to generate a "zero to hero" effect on a model that costs from 750/950 points especially if it's simple enough for some list containing the piece one of the reasons for the success of Maw and scurge is that they have…

    but it still has the same weakness and is less likely to achieve a flank charge with current rules. And if you manage you get much less pay for your effort. Its worse under its current rules. And not 20 points worse, if old rules were a manifestation for…

    For me the biggest winners in core are vassal levies. 35 spear/shield/bow FCG flaming standar 400 pts 15 CG flintlocks SM 410 pts way too much IMHO

    The patch seems incomplete and written too fastly. Some rules have been not very well meditated: - The main dissasters are Courtesan, engine of damnation (march 10), Omen, and strixian. - greenfire eyes: doesn't says if it works if only one model has it,…

    Quote from Nimrod: “we need to meet 340 points. WHY?? ” That's an intriguing question indeed. My guess is: The background has a relative power level of Fey Knight and courtier, and this is to be represented by the actual point cost. Is this assessment…
