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.

    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.

    I'd say: 1. they're part of the unit and the units maximum size is set to 60. Regardless of the type of model.

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lich King

    2. You don't need to buy bows for them. They can't even buy a bow. So they don't pay and they can't use bows. So 57 Common goblins with bows and three shady gits

    Arguably then, 2. also applies when buying Mad Gits?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    micdicdoc

    So if you want three Mad Gits you could only ever have a max 57 Cave Goblins?

  • wcf.user.avatar.alt
    Lich King

    I'd say the Surprise rule makes them not count against that limit since they're not deployed with unit
