Things keep moving fast at OPR, and today we’ve got a super-packed update for you, with tons of new releases, as well as a bunch of different videos for you to watch.
Let’s get to it!
Community Wiki Update
Before we begin, we wanted to highlight that over the past weeks the community wiki has been getting a ton of updates, and we now have 100+ pages full of content already!
There is something for everyone in the wiki, with dedicated game pages which give you an overview of all games and lore, as well as individual faction pages for Grimdark, Fantasy and Warfleets: FTL with more details.
For those of you that are interested in strategic tips, we have tactics pages for both Grimdark and Fantasy factions, as well as pre-made quickplay army lists for Grimdark and Fantasy, which cover most recently released box sets.
But what is probably the highlight of the wiki is that we now have dedicated miniatures pages where you can see exactly what models you can use for which units for both Grimdark and Fantasy. No more needing to guess what all those crazy alien hives units are!
The wiki is an amazing resource, and we’re really happy to see it grow, but it is by no means complete. If you’d like to contribute make sure to join our Discord server where we have dedicated wiki discussions: https://discord.gg/djBydgk
Ever since we started providing 3D miniatures, people have been asking us if it would be possible to get them printed for them since they don’t have a 3D printer. For the longest time we’ve been trying to find a good print-on-demand solution that isn’t prohibitively expensive, and it seems that we might have just solved the issue!
We have found a US-based supplier that is able to provide print-on-demand miniatures at a reasonable price, and now we would like to give them a shot to see if this is something that can become a “feature” we provide.
In order to make sure that this is something that is viable for the future, we would like to do a test run first, and so are now looking for volunteers that are interested in our previously released Battle Sisters models.
Here is how this works:
- Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title POD Test
- All questions regarding pricing, shipping, etc. will be answered via e-mail
- This is a US-based supplier, so you can expect shipping outside of the US to be pricey
- You don’t have to buy the full army bundle, but can choose just to print individual units
- Right now you can only get the Battle Sisters models printed
We want to make this very clear, this is a partnership between us and the supplier to provide an easy and reliable way for you to find a print-on-demand service. The supplier is NOT selling you our models, but they are only providing the service of printing them for you. This means that you need to buy the files from us first and then give them to the supplier in order for them to print them. This also means that we have no control over how the supplier handles their part of the business, and all of your questions ultimately have to be answered by them.
Due to the nature of the testing we expect this whole process to take at least a couple of weeks, and if everything goes well, then you can expect to get all of our models 3D printed through them in the future. :D

October Painting Competition
Don’t forget that this month we’re running our very first painting competition!
All you need to do is paint 1 model from our September release and share a high resolution picture of it on one of our social media channels:
- OPR Community on Facebook
- Instagram with #onepagerules
- Twitter with @onepagerules
- Discord with @onepageanon
DEADLINE: OCTOBER 15th
The community will vote for the best looking submission, and the winner will get one FREE month on Patreon at Tier 3 (handled via refund).
The miniatures should be painted by you, no commissions allowed. By entering the contest you give OPR permission to share the submitted pictures on our social media platforms.
Note: Since this is the first time we’re running something like this it might get a bit weird and we might have to adjust things in the future, but overall it should be fun!
Marauder Fleet Releases
This month is really awesome for FTL releases, because we’ve got the new Marauders Fleet available for you, and in the coming weeks we’ll also be releasing some space terrain!
