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.

    Quote from Promet: “Did we play correctly that the combat result is applied to both units? So the CR was 6 in his favor (5 killed + standard) so I removed 6 dogs in each unit, or should we have divided it among both, e.g. 3 and 3? ” yep, crumble is…

    You can't because as you stated, you would hit B while trying to wheel. You are only allowed to move straight forward and do a single wheel while charging.

    We have some experienced players yes. Not super competitive in international tournaments, for this austrian scene is a bit small. We did not aim to allow themed lists, of course this would make the 0-1 on everything obsolete. But we found that in…

    I think some people are seriously off track if they think that T9A exists for any other reason than for people to continue playing with their WHFB armies. Sure, they have gotten used to the new stuff but the game is still a continuation of WHFB and I…

    The rule is very simple! Unit gains Fearless and Frenzy when in contact with opponent. Unit gains +1" of Adv when declaring charge against wounded target. Everything else is just a wrapper to make it lawyer-proof.

    Finished 10 more archers. Plan to use these as grey watchers / sentinels. My first real use of contrast paints on the cloaks. They're far from perfect, but took a second to paint and the cloaks would have taken me really long time…
