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.

    @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.

    @syntropic And what you talk about is current poor design balance of choices that make the internal balance so bad. :D And no, additional discounts on our troops would not help with the internal balance of character choices in any way. Or upping prices…

    For less than 200 you can only have an anvil or a wisdom. Not both. And in either case it is highly unlikely that a rune will work unless the opponent is horribly unlucky. If you told me 250pts, I would agree, I see it as a bit limited but something can…

    Okay, so I got a test ride of a Pegasus Knight by Highland Miniatures. As the original is 32 or maybe even 35 mm, I asked for a 88% print. I think I got the height right, but the model seems a bit too thin - so I guess a 90 or maybe even 95% scale might…
