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.

    Am I the only one who LIKES the new elven kangaroos? I think they look kind of neat. Certainly better than a lot of other stuff GW has put out lately.

    I would have love to see GW suggests kangaroo-riding elves to the Tolkien Trust as part of their Middle Earth game.

    You know, someone should homebrew some Australian armies.

    @Eldan you aren't alone. I like the kangaroos. I would have put the elves mounted in the pouch, but that'sjust me

    I mean, they aren't even *that* Kangaroo-like. For starters, from the leg position we can clearly see that they run instead of hopping.

    I know GW have been trying to make their models break off their bases lately...

    but Kangaroos hopping would be pushing it.

    BH army should work like a tribe, anybody that can fight contributes what he can, no need for payment or threads but a common idea that makes them work together against an outside foe, laying their inside fights aside till after the battle. Means no BSB

    Someone shot a cannon at one of my units the other day. Only 1HP per model. They said it did D3+1 wounds to the unit's health pool with the first shot and the area attack after that. Is that right or does that first hit just kill one guy?
