Today we got two interesting topics for you: the new version of the Point Calculator and a new set of Quickplay Armies.
Something that became clear with the recent community survey is that many players suggest we create stuff that we have actually created already, simply because they’re unaware that these things exist.
The two biggest things that people requested are advanced rules for the games, as well as a way to calculate points for their own armies… which are things that are already available.
For advanced rules we already made a post giving more details on the Full Rulebooks, which you can find here: https://onepagerules.com/2019/06/27/full-rulebooks-more/
For the point calculator we’re going to use this news post to give you an idea of what we have and how to get it, so brace yourself!
New Point Calculator
So, what is the Point Calculator?
The Point Calculator is the system that we use to figure out the point costs for all units and weapons in the game and serves as the corner stone for our game engine.
The new version brings important changes to the Point Calculator by clarifying a lot of outstanding questions, re-writing a lot of serctions to be clearer and by adding new illustrations and background textures to the book.
With the Point Calculator you can create units from scratch, defining all of their traits like Quality, Defense and Special Rules. The book also comes with an exhaustive list of all Army Special Rules so that you can create virtually any type of unit you could ever dream of.
After having created your unit you can then equip it with custom weapons, which can be created just the way you like, modifying Range, Attacks, AP and Special Rules. This is a truly powerful tool as it allows you to go into as much or as little detail as you want, so you can mess around and forge insane weapons of war.
Finally the Point Calculator also comes with an extensive Designer’s Guidelines section, which explains the logic behind the creation of our Armies, Units and Weapons, so that you can create custom assets that fit in with the official armies we provide.
We’ve also included a large list of common weapons for you to use, as well as detailed explanations on how you can create units that work well by simply looking at your models and giving them the right stats.
Truly the Point Calculator is the best thing to have if you ever wanted to take our games to another level, or even use our base engine to create custom games of your own.

Quickplay Armies are pre-made army lists designed to be ready to play out of the box, without the need to count point costs or create your own lists. They are the perfect thing to dip your toes into new armies and see if you like them!
Two ancient forces have been fighting for the souls of the fallen for centuries and finally meet to settle matters once and for all. This set of Quickplay Armies is very interesting because it features two armies that both have specific strengths and weaknesses against each other, so clashes are extremely deadly.
This week’s Quickplay Armies: Eternal Wardens vs Ghostly Undead
- 1x Arcane Lord w/ Great Gryph
- 1x Enchanter Knight
- 3x Sequitur Squad
- 3x Evocation Squad
- 3x Castigation Squad
- 1x Ballista
- 1x Ghost Knight w/ Ghost Ram
- 1x Ghost Knight w/ Cursed Lantern
- 1x Ghost Executioner
- 1x Ghost Jailor
- 20x Ghost Horde w/ Command Group
- 5x Glaive Stalkers w/ Command Group
- 4x Ghost Reapers w/ 1x Death Bell
The Eternal Wardens in this set focus on a small but elite force of determined ghost hunters, which are few in numbers but extremely durable. Most units in the army have the Wizard rule, which allows them to cast powerful protection spells as well as take ghosts down easily by ignoring the Ethereal rule. These line troops are then supported by deadly marksmen and powerful artillery with the Ballista, which you should use to cover their advance and protect objectives.
The Ghostly Undead on the other hand focus a large horde of weak but relentless troops supported by on powerful heroes that excel at killing wardens. The Ghost Knight can give the Ghost Horde AP(1) with its Cursed Lantern, whilst the Ghost Jailor can ignore the enemy’s high defense with its Capture Soul ability. If you want to be more blunt the Ghost Executioner can easily chop heads with its Rending axe or else charge in with Ghost Reapers that multiply their attacks with Sweeping Strikes. There’s something for everyone…
Hope that you like them, if you have any suggestions please let us know. :)
