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.

  • In the last year I've played 2750, warband magic flux rules. It's been fine but like with a standard game there will be 2-3 important events that come together to shape the game. FOr 2750 point sometimes its a single combat and then one player is just…

    I think you might not quite get the concept of chaffing. Take a couple of them and hide them at first. Then, at a key moment in the game, you'll want to position them so they block an enemy maneuver and likely die in the process. Sacrificing a unit this…
  • uhh... Everywhere I played (and read about) during 6th-7th Ed times were atleast 2000 points... Back then, it was the minimum points to be allowed 1 Lord character. But anycase, during present day: Wouldn't mind abit smaller games, not sure about 3000…
