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.

    Here's a recent paint job of mine to get the ball rolling: UXymwZJ.jpg I really like Marco Colombo as a miniature. A true general and a master tactician is more concerned with maps and information than swordplay.

    @Minidudul I agree with most of what you said, but I don’t think it’s a problem that most builds max out the character section. For me, KoE is a character-driven army. We’re the faction of heroes. I think it’s good that a lot of our punching power…

    I decided against the Bolt-Thrower solution and stick more to the army book - even though I gave them bows as I find it rather fitting to shoot from a war platform instead of poking with a long halberd. Well, some got spears (halberds) too, it's a mix.…
