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.

    3~3.5h/round on average. The "active playing" part itself can be much faster, depending on the players/armies/how the battle goes. When I say 3-3.5h/game I include all peripheral elements: time for players to introduce each other, present their army &…

    60 or 30 rats has the same strength in combat. Whittling down 60 rats to 30 before combat doesnt change the outcome of the DE fight mentioned above. And the 30 wounds inflicted on that unit is wounds not directed anywhere else. Which is a win as…

    I believe GW can retcon the entire continent. Nemas problemas. I mean, several now iconic warhammer armies had no physical place on the continents at all until they got an army. Ogre Kingdoms for example. Or lizardmen for that matter. :)

    I wonder if there should not be a clause, as with raised undeads for example, that he can´t raise when there is a unit in 1". Doing his ignore units thing only in movement phase.
