Fantasy Battles: The 9th Age

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.

    Ever try to get AI art to produce anything reflected in a mirror? Does not work out how you'd expect, sometimes in surprising ways

    The big problem I have when trying to make art for the Ninth Age project is "X riding Y", i.e. "elf riding dragon"

    That gets a dragon-shaped horse. Or an elf next to a dragon. Possibly na elf riding a horse, but the elf is also a lizardman.

    hmm Other dwarves than deep watch can be bodyguard. Other dwarfs than deep watch can benefit from an aegis. Other dwarves than deep watch can have plate armor. So no, I would prefer a rule that unconsciously identifies the model. Like "The bigger they

    My kids are more interested in the hobby side than the gaming side at the moment, they’ll paint figures with me but if I try to pull out dice they quickly and conveniently remember that they have something else to do.

    So, looking vaguely at top 5 picks and trying to get some kind of 1-5 rating system, and then comparing it just to "mentioned in top five", I get a preference hierarchy that's something like as follows: 1) Cosmology 2) Occultism 3) Witchcraft 4)

    @Feaynnewedd Interesting that you used the KoE example. I believe KoE to be the strongest book currently, bordering broken with how powerful unit entries like the Lady’s courtier or the green night variants. I like your example of prince on foot as RH.…
