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.

    Well those are the new units. We ofc have the vassal stuff from ID but indeed using just O&G is not that straithforward. We put a lot of emphasis not to take anything away from future of Goblins. So that is why we have a lot of "new" stuff even if it is…

    If sliver was 200pts it would not be played. But I don't think the goal of the project is to kerb stomp the sliver prince. Sliver was still there when HE were the bottom tier army on their own. Presence of the sliver didn't make this army top tier; it…

    Points have literally not been decided at all, so... you know. (Yes, the book has placeholder guesstimates, but that's just from the Hobgoblins team, not the RT, and because we knew we wouldn't be making the final call, well I for one didn't stress too…

    Took me way too long to finish the rest of my bladedancers, but they are finally finished. I sadly only own 9 models so I had to do some filler work so I can field a unit of 15. I wish I had more of these models, they are exceptionally lovely in my…

    Quote from agilis: “Had a few games now. initial thoughts are: . 4. Academy banner can’t be 40 points. You either have it or don’t IMO, it’s too good at that price, especially on Dread Knights. . ” academy banner does not work with dread knights.

    Quote from Ozzy666: “...Yes, it *can* be used, but that's not the point I'm trying to make. Having models that just *can* be used is definitely not what I'm going for in a wargame, I want my models to actually look like the armybook entries they…

    So there is definitive room for improvement because the current item is simply to bad to even consider as mentioned above. I apologize for being blunt now in advance: Since I think that rules like Arrogance and some other op rules in Beta one (not…
