Community Survey Results + More

3D Print, Community Survey

Hi everyone,

This week we’re gonna be sharing the community survey results, a development roadmap for FTL, a new bundle, some news about what’s coming in August on Patreon and more.

This is going to be another big one, so let’s get to it!


Community Survey Results

Last week we promised you the community survey results in our insanely big update, and now finally the time has come to reveal your thoughts. This was the biggest community we ever did, with just over 350 responses before we closed it, and it’s really great to see the community grow and come together like this. :D

Now then, let’s get to the results.

When it comes to the game jam frequency it’s interesting to see that from the players that are actually interested there is an almost 50-50 split as to who wants the game jam every 6 months, and who wants it every 12 months.

Seeing how there is a demand for it, we’re going to try out making it every 6 months to see how it goes, and those that prefer to participate only once a year can still do that.

With that in mind, we have changed the date for the next game jam, and it is now planned to run from November 13th to November 15th, and you can sign up already here: https://itch.io/jam/oprgj2

This question was more out of personal curiosity, but it’s interesting to see that only about 1/4th of players use Instagram for wargaming, which is funny seeing how it’s one of the biggest social media platforms in the world.

Anyway, as always with surveys these results could be flawed though, so maybe the reason why the results are so low is exactly because we don’t currently have an Instagram presence, but maybe if we did then we’d be attracting those players, which would bring the numbers up.

When we added this question we really didn’t know what to expect, but it’s interesting to see that there’s at least 40% of players interested in a Kickstarter campaign. This definitely gives us the confidence to give the platform a try, and whilst we don’t have anything planned yet, you might see an OPR Kickstarter in the future.

Now for the most interesting part, new games. Unfortunately google forms kind of cuts some of the name of the options when loading the graphic, so here’s the top 10 voted games:

  • Dungeon Crawler – 47.5%
  • Mech Combat – 44.6%
  • Small-Scale Sci-Fi – 41.7%
  • Cyberpunk – 30.4%
  • Hex Arena Combat – 28.1%

What’s funny to note is that we threw the Dungeon Crawler option in there as an afterthought, and it ended up being the most voted one after all, who would’ve thought. Anyway, these results are pretty different from the last community survey, with only Dungeon Crawling and Cyberpunk still at the top, whilst everything else is new.

Looking at this list there’s definitely some game ideas we have to create interesting experiences, so you can expect some of these to become a reality in the future. :)

It’s also worth mentioning that we had an open text field where people could put their own suggestions, but all of the suggestions were so different that it makes no sense to list them here. The only one that was suggested multiple times was Napoleonic, so maybe in the next survey we’ll add it as an option to see if people vote for it.

Moving onto the army charts, on the Grimdark Future side things have remained mostly the same since the last community survey, with no big increase or decrease in player counts for any army.

On the Age of Fantasy side things are also pretty stable, with the exception of the Chivalrous Kingdoms falling behind by a bit, whilst some of the newer factions slowly wrestle their way to the top.

Final Thoughts

We love having the community survey, it gives us a great insight into the mind of our players, and how they enjoy the wargaming hobby in general.

At the end of the survey we left an open text box, and whilst there were far too many things said there to address right now, here’s a couple of the things that people mentioned most often, and our thoughts:

  • 3D Print-on-Demand: Some players suggested that we start collaborating with 3D print companies to give people without 3D printers the option to buy our models. We’ve actually been in talks with a couple of them, and if we can get you a good deal, then you can expect something like that in the future (no promises though).
  • TTS Models: Some other players suggested that we start create an official OPR mod on TTS and provide our 3D models for playing there, which honestly we had never thought about, but will look into. Again, no promises, but we’ll see what we can do.
  • Online List Builder: Thanks to the exceptional work of Darguth, there are a ton of armies for both GF and AoF already available on BattleScribe to help you build your lists (check it out here). Now some players suggested that we make our own online list builder, and whilst it would be great, we don’t know that it’s worth the investment. It would take a lot of time and money to develop, which we generally think might be better spent on developing new stuff, instead of re-doing something that already exists with BattleScribe. Never say never, but right now there are no plans to develop something like that.
  • Video Battle Reports: This is something we’ve had people request for a long time, so let’s dig into it. Now a lot of you might not know this, but OPR is fully created and run by just 1 person (hi!) living in a tiny apartment and with a full-time job. Even if I wanted to start making battle reports, it would not cost a lot of money and time to make, but I would also have to either move or find a studio space. Then I’d need to get a good table, lighting, armies, camera, etc. to make the whole thing look great. That’s simply not possible. I’ve already contacted countless creators on YouTube, and everyone is too busy creating their own content, so they’re not up for any sort of partnership with us. If you want to see GF battle reports, your best bet is to check out the ones made by Wyloch’s Armory, which are awesome.

There were also a TON of people that sent us a lot of compliments, and we’d like to thank everyone for the kind words and their awesome suggestions. Working on this project is a dream come true, and none of this would be possible without you, so you are the real heroes that should be thanked! :D


FTL Status Update

FTL has now been in early access for 1 month (yay!), so we thought it’s time to give an update.

Right now we’ve got all of the core rules, ship types, heroes, upgrades, weapons and squadron types ready, and we’ve moved on to work on the faction’s book.

There are going to be 6 factions in the game, and we’ve decided to release the factions in phases so that we can take a good look at them, get some playtesting done, etc.

If everything goes well here is the plan:

  • 05/08 – Empire vs Alliance
  • 12/08 – Marauders vs Nomads
  • 19/08 – Progenitors vs Xenos

As we release these piece by piece we’ll also start working on the full rulebook, hopefully getting the beginner’s guide done by the end of August, and then doing advanced rules by the beginning of September.

The goal is to try and get the game “ready” by end of September, completing the 3-month development cycle, at which point the core rules will go out to the public so that we can get as much feedback as possible, and we’re thinking that we’d like to wait at least 3-6 months before we can consider the game to be fully stable.

As part of the release of the game you can expect some awesome 2D and 3D models, but more on that later…

One last thing, over the course of development we realized that the game was pretty similar to Warfleets, so we decided re-name the game from Faster than Light to Warfleets: FTL. In order to avoid future confusion we have re-named the current Warfleets back to Orion’s Gate. This change will allow us to treat Warfleets as a game engine, which can then be adapted to different settings. Think Warfleets: Fantasy or Warfleets: Naval Battles.


Vile Rattus Cult Army

Last week we saw the successful funding of the Vile Rattus Cult Kickstarter campaign, and with that we’ve now released the Vile Rattus Cult army lists for Grimdark Future and GF: Firefight.

In celebration we’ve created a bundle with all of the ratmen heroes made by ThatEvilOne for OPR, which you can now get at a 33% discount: https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-model-collections/ratmen-heroes-bundle


August Patreon Goodies

In August we’re starting to offer a 20% Discount Code to all of our Tier 3 supporters, as well as a welcome pack with 3D print tokens and a 3D printable ruler for you to play with.

Here’s all the goodies you can expect:

  • Warfleets: FTL
  • Jakob’s Path: Chapter 2
  • 2D Kingdom of Angels
  • 3D Tokens & Ruler
  • 3D Battle Sisters Walker
  • 3D Dwarf Giant Construct
  • 3D Gnoll Warrior by Manuel Boria

In the meantime we’ve uploaded the July models to our stores:


AoF: Regiments on WargameVault

This week we put up the last one of our Full Rulebooks up on WargameVault, meaning that all of them are available for purchase there. It’s still much cheaper to get them on Patreon, but if you can’t subscribe for whatever reason, at least now you have the option to buy them separately. :)

Get the rulebook by clicking HERE.


Forum Update

Finally we wanted to give you an update on the forum change from Discourse to Proboards.

The migration process has started, with us changing the url and activating the ad-free version, so you can expect for the forum to be fully functional in the coming days.

Whilst the final url will stay the same (forum.onepagerules.com), it’s going to take a while for the change to happen, so in the meantime you can still use the old one: https://onepagerules.proboards.com/

We’re actually really happy to be switching back to Proboards, the interface might be a little more “old school” but we find it much easier to navigate. PROTIP: use http://forum.onepagerules.com/posts/recent to see the latest posts.


That’s it for today, during the next couple of days I’m going to be travelling, so I might be a little slow to answer any questions, so let’s hope nothing major breaks during that time. :D

Happy Wargaming!

TONS OF UPDATES AND RELEASES

2D Print, 3D Print, Collaboration, Game Update, Quickplay Armies

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got so much new stuff for you that we don’t even know where to begin!

In today’s update you’ll find news about the release of a new narrative campaign, a huge balance update that’s affecting most armies, more updates on specific armies, new 2D and 3D models, and much much more.

Over this past week we’ve also been running a community campaign, but honestly with so much stuff in today’s update we don’t think it’s the right time to share the results yet, as they deserve a biggest spotlight. Because of this you can expect the results next week.

Anyway, let’s get the show on the road!


Jakob’s Path: Chapter 1

Something that players have been asking us for a long time is to provide more narrative for our games, involving epic stories of battles and heroes across the worlds we’ve built.

Well, the time has finally come, and this week we’re super happy to release the first chapter of our first Grimdark Future narrative campaign: Jakob’s Path.

Jakob’s Path is a narrative campaign for Grimdark Future, which is being released in 5 chapters. Each chapter continues the story and features 2 new missions for you to play. Whilst the campaign was written with Battle Brothers vs Orc Marauders in mind, it can be played with any other factions and whatever models you have.

Chapter 1 begins the adventure with Jakob and his Battle Brothers landing on the mysterious planet of Zeloria-M5, looking to neutralize any Orc Marauders that inhabit it. Little did they know that they would find much more than just some pesky greenskins on the planet…

Download the chapter here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/34546818  

Note that you must be a Tier 2 patron to access to the link above.

This campaign is going to be available exclusively on Patreon until all 5 chapters have been released, after which it will go up for sale on our WargameVault Store at a higher price. 

The story was written by Gabriela Rebelo who took part in the writer’s submission challenge, and you can expect more narrative campaigns in the future written by other people that submitted their stories!


Battle Sisters Army Pack

For our line of 2D print models this week we’ve release the Battle Sisters army pack.

Battle Sisters are all-female splinter factions of the Battle Brothers, which follow the lead of their own god-queen. They are equipped with custom heavy battle armor and wield powerful flame weapons to purge the galaxy.

Get the models here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/battle-sisters-39588438

To help you get into the game ASAP, here is a Quickplay Army you can use with these models:

  • 1x High Sister w/ Pistol & Energy Sword
  • 10x Battle Sisters w/ 1x Heavy Flamethrower
  • 10x Battle Sisters w/ 1x Fusion Rifle
  • 10x Fanatic Sisters

2D Print Tutorials

Speaking of 2D miniatures, we’ve decided to add a little tutorial page at the end of all of our 2D print files, showing you 2 different methods you can use to assemble your armies. Hopefully this will help new player to understand how to use them easily, and experiment with different methods to find what works best for them.


Beastmen Assassin by Ilhadiel

Moving on to 3D printing, this month we got the last model made in collaboration with the amazing Ilhadiel, and you should definitely check out his Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/ilhadiel

Beastmen Assassins protect their herds by killing those that threaten their lands. They work silently and without thanks, bloodying their hands to save their kind.

Download the model here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/39513117


Patreon Summary for June

This month it’s really great to be subscribed to our Patreon, and here’s a highlight of everything you get if you support the project before the 30th of July:

  • Early Access: Faster Than Light
  • GF – Jakob’s Path: Chapter 1
  • 2D Battle Sisters (2 Colors & PSD)
  • 3D Biker Sisters
  • 3D Biker Fanatics
  • 3D Dwarf Power Suits
  • 3D Beastmen Assassin

This of course is on top of all the usual stuff (5 rulebooks, point calculators, etc.), so you’re getting a huge amount of value for as little as $5. We really don’t know of any better deal out there!


Quick Highlights

Ok so this update has already been pretty long but we’re not even halfway through, so for the next 4 things we’re just going to do quick highlights to get you up to speed.

1 – Vile Rattus Kickstarter

The Kickstarter is almost over, so if you want awesome ratmen models you should definitely check it out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thatevilone/cult-of-vile-rattus-a-cheese-stealer-cult 

2 – Battle Brothers Bundle

All of our Battle Brothers 3D models have now been put together in an army bundle, which you can get at a 20% discount: https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-model-collections/battle-brothers-bundle

3 – Age of Fantasy: Skirmish on WargameVault

For those of you that can’t support us on Patreon, we are now providing the AoFS rulebook on WargameVault as well, so check it out: https://www.wargamevault.com/product/321041/Age-of-Fantasy-Skirmish–Full-Rulebook?affiliate_id=2357452

4 – Forum Migration

As previously announced we are going to close down the current Discourse forum and switch back to a Proboards forum at the end of the month, so if you’ve got anything to save then do it now: http://forum.onepagerules.com/

The old forum has already been re-opened, and we’ll switch the URL when the switch has been completed, but if you want to already register now you can do it: https://onepagerules.proboards.com/


Balance Updates

Finally let’s move onto the game updates.

As some of you may have already noticed, some of the more elite armies and vehicles in the game can be very pricey, almost to the point of making them underpowered. This stems from the fact that until not a 2+ defense value has been very expensive, which was tipping the balance a little too much in favor of cheaper armies.

So, in a stroke of absolute madness we decided to re-balance the cost of 2+ during the last week, which meant that we’ve had to update almost every army book in the game. Luckily enough we had some volunteers to help out, but it was still a ton of work.

You can expect most vehicles to be cheaper, as well as all of the elite armies to be cheaper, which will hopefully shift the balance of the game enough to make them a bit more viable against horde armies, especially in skirmish.

This update is coming for all games, so you can also expect monsters and chariots to be cheaper in fantasy, as well as some of the other more resilient units out there.


Prime Brothers + Robot Legions Updates

With a new boxed set hitting the street we went ahead and added a couple of new units to the Prime Brothers and the Robot Legions, as well as doing some more changes.

Prime Brothers now all have the Firstborn special rule, which gives them Regeneration against non-spell attacks, making them a bit tougher to crack. Then we added 1 new hero and 4 new units, as well as giving all heroes the ability to take combat shields.

Robot Legions also got a bunch of new stuff, with 2 new heroes and 2 new units, as well as some new equipment for Overseers, Technomancers and Warriors. It’s a good day to be a robot.

We’ve also come up with some Quickplay Armies for you to get into the game if you got the boxed set.

Prime Brothers

  • 1x Captain w/ Pistol, Energy Sword, Combat Shield & War Chant
  • 1x Captain w/ Pistol, Energy Sword & Battle Rites
  • 1x Lieutenant w/ Shred Pistol, Energy Sword, Combat Shield & Precision Shots
  • 1x Ancient w/ Pistol, Energy Sword, Combat Shield & Ancient Banner
  • 1x Judge
  • 3x Guard Squad
  • 3x Eradication Squad
  • 10x Assault Squad w/ 1x Plasma Pistol
  • 3x Prime Bikers w/ Twin Rifles

Robot Legions

  • 1x Tri-Scorpion Overseer
  • 1x Overseer w/ Phase Glaive
  • 1x Warden
  • 1x Technomancer w/ Bot-Master & 2x Technoslaves
  • 10x Warriors w/ 5x Reaper Rifles
  • 3x Tri-Scorptions w/ 1x Heavy Armblade & Plasmabot
  • 3x Bot Swarms
  • 1x Tripod Robot & Reanimator

Other Updates

Since we’ve already been working on all of these updates, why not more?

Based on community feedback we’ve been updating some stuff for GF and AoF, so you should definitely check if your army has been updated and tweak your lists.

Community Survey, Online Point Calculator, Battle Report + More

3D Print, Community Survey, Video Content

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got the bi-annual community survey for you, info about the online point calculator beta, a grimdark future batrep, as well as lots of other info about new releases.

Let’s get to it!


Community Survey

Every 6 months we like to take give everyone in our community a chance to provide some feedback on our project via an online survey (see the last survey results here), and it seems like it’s about time again.

Please take a moment to fill it out here: https://forms.gle/yWEw2q3PLgr3KLcFA

The survey will run for one week, and then we will post the results here again. :)


Online Point Calculator (BETA)

We’ve been talking about providing a web-based version of our point calculators for far too long, but we’re happy to be able to finally actually release the first beta!

The online point calculator allows you to create custom units quickly and with ease, taking away all the tedious math so that you can get creative ASAP.

Check it out: http://pointcalc.onepagerules.com/ 

This is still a beta, and currently there are only point costs for GF/GFF, but we’re working on improving the app as well as adding in AoF/AoFS. Please provide us with any and all feedback possible, it really helps!


Grimdark Future Battle Report

It’s been a very long time since we posted a batrep, but the amazing Wyloch has finally come around and made another video, this time featuring a 2500pts match of Robot Legions vs High Elf Fleets.

If you’ve never heard of him before, make sure to check out his Grimdark Future Batrep Playlist, with 12 awesome battle reports featuring all sorts of armies and game modes.


Vile Rattus Kickstarter

The Vile Rattus Kickstarter Campaign by ThatEvilOne is coming along very nicely, funding in just 30 minutes and already having reached a couple of stretch goals!

Check it out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thatevilone/cult-of-vile-rattus-a-cheese-stealer-cult

He already posted a couple of updates with new model previews, as well as confirming that pre-supported files will be provided, which sounds pretty damn good. :)


Power Armor Dwarves Released

These models were made in collaboration with Kyoushuneko Miniatures, check out the Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/kyoushuneko_miniatures 

Dwarf Power Suits are the guardians of the dwarf forces, battling tirelessly to protect their brethren. They are an unstoppable force almost impervious to damage. 

These models come with 3 different head designs, 6 different body designs and 3 different hammer designs.

Grimdark Future: Firefight available on WargameVault

The rulebook is still much cheaper to get directly on Patreon, however we are making it available elsewhere for those that can’t become patrons due to different restrictions.

Get the rulebook by clicking HERE.


Forum Switch Incoming

Finally we wanted to remind everyone that the current forum is going to be deleted at the end of the month, and we’re going to be reverting to the old forum. Make sure to save all your stuff and transfer it from one forum to the other before it gets lost in the void!

Once the month is over we’ll be doing the switch, which will take some time to get the correct URL to be working and have the ads removed, but after that it should run smoothly again. :)


That’s it for today, once again lots of stuff! Make sure to answer the community survey, and we’ll be happy to share the results with you next week.

Happy Wargaming!

Cult of Vile Rattus Kickstarter

3D Print, Collaboration

Hi everyone,

Today we’re super excited to share with you news of an awesome upcoming Kickstarter campaign, as well as some other small updates regarding new releases and our forum.


Cult of Vile Rattus Kickstarter

Over the past couple of months ThatEvilOne has provided OPR with some awesome ratmen miniatures, and if you thought the rat madness was over, then you were very very wrong!

ThatEvilOne is launching a Kickstarter campaign this Sunday (12th of July) at 12PM (PST), which will be filled with a ton of amazing sci-fi ratmen models for you to 3D print at home.

The campaign will feature 80+ infantry and vehicle models, and we hear that there’s a ton of stretch goals as well to provide you with even more rat goodness. ;)

As a thank you for collaborating with us we’ve created a dedicated Vile Rattus Cult army list for Grimdark Future and Grimdark Future: Firefight, and on top of that anyone that backs the Kickstarter will also get a free copy of the Full Rulebooks for both games as well.

Make sure to sign up to be notified when it launches by clicking here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thatevilone/cult-of-vile-rattus-a-cheese-stealer-cult

This is going to be an amazing Kickstarter campaign, and we can’t wait to see everything that ThatEvilOne has in store for the backers, but in the meantime enjoy the previews below. :D


Biker Fanatics Released

In other 3D print related news, this week we released our second set of bikers this month, this time with the fanatic sisters and their deadly heavy chainsaw swords.

Download the models here:  https://www.patreon.com/posts/34548348 

Note that you must be a Tier 3 patron to access to the link above.

These models are going to be available exclusively on Patreon until the 30th of July, after which they will go up for sale on our CGTrader store at a higher price.


Free Dwarf Rifleman Released

Finally for our last 3D print news this week, we’ve released a free Dwarf Rifleman model on our Thingiverse page, so that you can do a test print before getting the full pack on CGTrader.

Grab the model here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4526981

Age of Fantasy Full Rulebook on WargameVault

As we announced last week we’re now providing our Full Rulebooks for sale on WargameVault for those that don’t have access to Patreon. It’s still much cheaper to get the model via Patreon, but if you really have no other option, then at least now you have a way to get the Age of Fantasy rulebook. :)

Get the rulebook by clicking HERE.


Upcoming Forum Changes

Around 3 months ago we switched our forum hosting from Proboards to Discourse, because on Proboards we had to manually provide patrons with additional forum access, which was becoming impossible as the number of supporters increased. Discourse being the only forum with a Patreon integration seemed like a dream, as it would allow us to automate the whole process, so we made the switch.

Looking at how things turned out, it’s clear to us that switching to Discourse was a mistake.

Whilst it’s true that it allowed for some automation, it also came with a number of other problems (from a bad interface to not sending out confirmation e-mails), which have lead to a decrease in forum members and forum usage. We tried getting some help from the Discourse developers, but they demand $100/month to give us support, and honestly we believe that money is better spent elsewhere (like art, miniatures, etc.).

So, what does this all mean?

Basically, we’re going to be shutting down the current Discourse forum at the end of the month, and switch back to Proboards. This means everyone’s old accounts, threads and posts will be restored, and hopefully we can go back to having a healthy forum again.

Switching back to Proboards means that we won’t have the Patreon integration anymore, and so it means that we will not have a patrons-only forum section anymore. Seeing how we haven’t had an active thread on there in a month, we hope this won’t be too big of a loss, and any patrons-only content can still be shared via our Discord server.

That’s it, we hope this helps shed some light on why we’re doing this. :)


That’s it for today, make sure to set a reminder for the Cult of Vile Rattus Kickstarter campaign. :D

Happy Wargaming!

Biker Sisters + Small Updates

3D Print

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got some new patreon models, a free thingiverse model, as well as a couple of smaller updates for the game and our website/patreon descriptions.


Biker Sisters Released

This week we’ve released a new set of 3D print models, and we’re super happy with how they turned out, looking like they’re ready to take on anything! :D

Biker Sisters are able to zoom across the battlefield in the blink of an eye, allowing them to get to where they are most needed quickly.

Download the models here:  https://www.patreon.com/posts/34548348 

Note that you must be a Tier 3 patron to access to the link above.

These models are going to be available exclusively on Patreon until the 30th of July, after which they will go up for sale on our CGTrader store at a higher price.


Free Battle Brothers Model

We continue with our quest to provide you all with free models for you to run some test prints, and this week we’ve uploaded a Battle Brothers model on Thingiverse.

Small Game Update

Today we’ve just made a small update to the Ratmen army for the Age of Fantasy series of games, clarifying how the Tunnel Drill team works in order to avoid any doubts. The army books have already been updated, so just head over to the relevant game section to download the latest version.


Grimdark Future on WargameVault

Since we’ve re-vamped our Full Rulebooks we’ve always had some people asking us if they could get access to them outside of Patreon. In order to give people that don’t have access to Patreon in their country a way to get the Full Rulebooks, we’ve decided to try uploading them on WargameVault.

This week we started with Grimdark Future, but we’ll be adding one Full Rulebook every week until they’re all available on WargameVault. Supporting us on Patreon is still the cheapest way to get your hands on all of the content we release, but at least now everyone has a way to get our rulebooks. :)

Small Website / Patreon Changes

Even after being for 3 years on Patreon there are still some players who are confused by how our release model works, so in order to try and make things clearer we’ve re-worked our games sections and our Patreon home.

For those of you that are still new, here is how it works:

“Every month we work on new games and miniatures, which are first released on Patreon and then later sold in our stores. By supporting us on Patreon you get access to our content before anybody else, and for a much lower price then it will be sold at later.”

We’ve also used this chance to try and clean up the games section and make them a little cleaner, so now all of the extra content (mission cards, campaign rules, etc.) has now been placed in a single shared folder, making it easier to access everything at once instead of having to open individual links.

So yeah, not huge changes, but hopefully they will make things easier to grasp for newcomers and veterans alike. :)


That’s it for today, we’ll be back with an update next week with some previews of new stuff to come, hope you enjoy your weekend and stay safe. :D

Happy Wargaming!
