November is looking to be a great month, and we’ve got a ton of new stuff for you. There’s army forge updates, age of fantasy updates, new missions, new models, the upcoming game jam… there’s lots of new stuff. :D
Let’s get to it!
OPR Game Jam #4 – Join Now!
It’s almost time for the next game jam already, so make sure to save the date!
The OPR Game Jam is a 48hr game making marathon, focused on creating one-page miniatures games. The game jam runs from November 12th, at 8PM UK time / 3PM ET time, to November 14th, at 8PM UK time / 3PM ET time.
Anyone can submit a game, and you may work alone or in teams. The games will then be judged by the public, and then we will highlight the top 3 voted games on the OPR website. There is no winner or prize, it’s all just for fun!

Army Forge (beta) – Tons of new armies!
Last week we finally released the OPR Army Forge, which is a new amazing list building tool that makes getting ready to play easier than ever!
Over the last week we’ve added almost all of the armies in the game, and are currently only missing the Battle Brother Detachments, Havoc Brother Disciples and the Wormhole Daemons. We’re hoping to have all of those added by the end of next week, but no promises, development is a fickle thing.
Right now Army Forge is the only way to get your hands on the v2.50 beta lists, and we’ve removed the previous PDF lists which had no points, in order to make sure everyone is on the same page. Since this is a beta for both the app and the rules, you can expect lots of rules changes over the next period, as we playtest and adjust the armies.
The current plan is to finish importing all of the Grimdark Future armies, and then move on to importing all of the GF: Firefight armies. Once that is done, we will move on to working on v2.50 for Age of Fantasy, which is really exciting!

Age of Fantasy Army Updates
With the release of our newest models on Patreon, we’ve gone and updated the Mummified Undead army with rules for all of the missing units. In December we’re going to start releasing our very own Beastmen miniatures, and in preparation for that we’ve gone and updated the Beastmen army book as well, so that everything should be aligned.
- New units: Hunting Beasts, Beast Riders, God-Titan
- Mummy King can now be mounted on a Royal Snake and Royal Beast
- Re-named a few units across the board
- New unit: Centaur Titan
- Crazed Boars now have the Crazed rule
- Monsters can now be upgraded with a Beast Tamer
New Mission Packs
The October mission pack has been released on Patreon, with 4 brand new missions:
- Grimdark Future – Excavation Site
- GF: Firefight – Escort
- Age of Fantasy – Dark Realm
- AoF: Skirmish – Sacrifice
These missions are focused on fun new ways to play, with interesting objectives and special rules to spice things up. We release new missions every month, so make sure to stick around so that you don’t miss any.
Note that whilst the missions are designed for each specific game, you can totally play them with the rules for any other game (with slight adjustments). This means that you have even more missions to play each month!
Etsy Store Update
Recently we’ve put our Etsy Store on pause, and have gotten loads of questions about it, so we thought it would be good to give you an overview of what is happening with our physical prints, and what you can expect in the future.
Since the beginning of the year, we’ve been in partnership with a 3D print miniatures manufacturer from the UK, through which we have been running our Etsy Store. The system is quite simple, there is an integration between Etsy and the manufacturer, so that whenever an order is made on Etsy, it will be automatically sent to the printers, shipped, and a tracking number be sent to the customer.
This has all been working fine until a few months ago, when continuous changes to the Etsy system started breaking the integration, which caused a lot of issues. We have been working closely with the manufacturer to ensure that everyone gets their models ASAP, and by now only a handful of orders with issues remain.
Over the last couple of months, we have been trying to get the integration to work correctly, but it appears that the integration is now completely broken, and due to the continuous changes on Etsy’s side, it’s going to be a huge effort to get it up and running again. All of these issues on Etsy have already caused significant losses on our side, and so we’re now looking at another solution.
We’re currently working closely with the manufacturer on the creation of their own store website, so that we don’t have to deal with any other platforms and messy integrations. By building the website from scratch, the manufacturer can ensure that the models are printed correctly, on time, and shipped to the right address, without any issues.
The system is still under development, so at this current moment, there is no way for you to buy our models physically, sorry. We’re working on getting the new store up and running ASAP, and will keep you updated.
Thank you for your patience, and I want to personally say sorry to everyone who’s order was affected by these issues, I sincerely hope that this new system will work better!
