This past week I have been extremely busy, spending most of my time on the overhaul of the arena games. I have now converted all 13 existing warbands into the new system, and have been playtesting them every day, trying to further refine and optimize the system. Depending on how it goes there will be a public version available by the end of the month, so here’s hoping!
Aside from that I’ve also spent some time working on some minor army updates, plus the preparation of a bunch of stuff that was released via Patreon this week.
Anyway, let’s get to the actual updates!

The OPR writing jam is a 48hrs story writing marathon, where participants are asked to write a one-page story set to a common theme, which is revealed at the start of the jam. Once the 48hrs have passed the stories go public, and everyone gets to vote for their favorite one.
The writing jam takes place from February 19th to February 21st, it’s completely free to join, and you can sign up here.

Minor Army Updates
Today we’ve updated the Saurian and Robot Legion armies, adding some new weapon options to go with some of our new cool models. Additionally we have tweaked the Beastmen army, making Ambush optional on some of the core units so that they can be a little more competitive.
Here’s the changelog:
- Robot Legions – Annihilator Overseers can now be upgraded with Heavy Gauss Cannons
- Beastmen – Ambush is now optional for units of Hunters, Warriors and Raiders
- Saurians – Guardians can now replace their Halberds with Great Weapons
Minor FTL Update
Today we’ve also updated the rules for FTL, fixing an oversight in the ramming rules. Now ships are pushed when rammed by ships of the same size or higher, instead of only when being rammed by bigger ships, which gives ramming a nice boost.
We also would like to remind everyone that this is the last month that the Full Rulebook for FTL is available on Patreon, so make sure to grab it now before it goes up in price!
2 New Free 3D Models (17 Total)
With a new month and a new release, we’ve also added 2 new models for free to our 3DCults Page. Make sure to download the Gecko and Robot Guardian for a test print!
This week has seen quite a few new releases, with a new chapter of Darkness Within, as well as some 2D hero models to go with it, plus a new 2D gang with The Brutes.
On the 3D side of things we’ve got a new collaboration going with Dragon Trapper’s Lodge, who were so kind to give us a free model and a special discount for their anniversary.
