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.

    They are really shiny, so opposing fliers can't help but try and snatch them out of the air.

    @RoB - the first instalment would be with 1 person = 1 country = 1 continent. if the format works well, we add another round with 4 more factions / people. im a bit worried we wont find many players for Africa / Asia, tho. maybe we should pool them with SouthAmerica / Australia respectively?

    Europe // NorthAmerica // Africa+SouthAmerica // Asia+Australia(+NZ) ?

    then we can have 4 rounds with 4 factions each and cover all 16 factions.

    When pooling people per continent, you got to think about the time zones. It's already difficult for me here to get a game with people in Europe because when i start wanting to play (at 20h) they start going to bed (at 22h). So don't pool Africa with America and Oz.

    last time we had a Philippes-Utah game, not sure it can get much worse than this : D

    the alternative is simple: find me at least four people who are happy to represent Africa, and no pooling will be needed! ;: )

    Worse would probably be if you mixed in Australia and their horrible internet.

    I see this falling with some auto-play armies like a EoS with IG death-star with some shooting. Going forward with that list/any kind of WDG list is mostly a suicide. Nearly all armies have some beginner death star or tricky unit to deal with beginner …

    My thoughts are similar. UD should be an army that is just due to circumstances dead while the VC should be mighty undead creatures and their puppets. For one army undeath is a quirk for the other a feature.

    i'm fine with them not having special rules, i don't think every unit in the game should have a special rule. they're already flying skirmishers which are Insignificant. if they beefed them up a bit and increased the min. size to say ten then they would…
