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?

    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.…

    The VS book allows fielding some of the largest and cheapest tarpits of T9A. Being able to shoot at the unfortunate enemy units that we have managed to pin down with said tarpits represents an interesting and unique tactic.

    Hmm, @Kasocles they are removed at AGI 0 does not mean they strike all. You hit them with Lamia at 2+ and will get several buffs in your magic phase. Since they won't break so you just need a further round of combat or two. Also combo charges help. A
