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.

    i am fine about that. Except for "consistent damage". Give them S4 and light lance and i might agree. But i think this expression describe them poorly.

    Not sure if this has already been suggested but if we wanted to slightly nerf WoG just have it scatter by a factor of the number of tokens it has accumulated. So if it comes down straight away it is smaller but more reliable, if it takes ages it is…

    So 5,4,5 for a 15 man block where you only have 14 models to free up space in the middle rank for model overlap? Its a sensible idea and shouldn't cause any issues given what models you choose to use doesn't actually matter with T9A. Just be careful…
