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.

    25 minutes since I updated the DNS, and already 111 users have visited the forum. Half of them while the forum was still in maintenance mode.

    Because it was shut down, I understand the importance of maintenance.

    "importance of maintenance" is all relative. we could have waited and have our server shut down on Monday morning. =)

    Am I correct in thinking that Shady Gits are not upgrades to Common Goblin units (since you 'take' them and don't 'upgrade' a model to be one)? If your Common Goblin unit is running with bows, you then don't pay for a bow for these guys?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    micdicdoc

    With Shady Gits, the max size of the unit is then 63 models? Do I have this right?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    piteglio

    i see it the other way. unlike Mad Gits, you *deploy* Shady Gits. so i would pay 57 goblins, 3 gits, and 60 bows. but i look forward to the opinion of someone who know more than i do.
