GFF: Gang Wars is coming!

It seems that not a month goes by without us revealing some cool new thing, so here we go again with a brand new expansions for Grimdark Future: Firefight with Gang Wars!

So, what exactly is Gang Wars?

Gang Wars is an expansion for GFF that provides additional rules for violent gang combat in the streets of the dangerous and futuristic Hive City.

The rules are designed to be used both for one-off matches as well as for linked campaigns, and they can be played with any armies, although we recommend using Gangs of Hive City.

This is a standalone expansion, so you just need the free core rules and army lists that are available on the website, however you can also use the extra rules from the Full Rulebook to further expand your games.

The expansion’s campaign rules are based off the core campaign rules, however they come with a ton of extra content that add new layers to your GFF campaign experience.

In linked campaigns gangs will fight over city blocks and special locations, with an expanded roster of new skills and equipment, as well as a lot of other surprises. If you just want to play one-off games don’t worry though, most of the stuff can be used for single matches as well, such as 12 brand new missions and urban terrain rules.

Right now all of the following content is being added to the game, however there are even more systems that we’re playing around with, so you might get even more stuff in the end!

  • Campaign Rules
  • New Skill Traits
  • Hive City Armory
  • Territory Control Rules
  • Gang Turf Exploration
  • 12 New Missions
  • Urban Terrain Rules
  • City Fighting Rules
  • Critical Hits Rules
  • 36 New Random Events

Gang Wars is currently in early access on Patreon, with new content being added every week, and we’re hoping to have the first completed draft by the end of the month.

If everything goes well, then we’ll keep the game for a little while longer in early access, after which it will be removed and be available for sale in our WargameVault store.

This has been a blast to design, and we can’t wait to see people’s reactions once it’s out!

Grab your copy in early access here: https://www.patreon.com/onepagerules


New November Renders

This month has been extremely busy, so it’s been a bit slow for us to get renders of all the models done, but we’re happy to say that we’ve now got renders for almost all models!

Check them out:


Free Shooter Grunt

November seems to already be the month of giving for OPR, and today we’ve released our 3rd free model this month on our Thingiverse page, which is now getting packed!

Grab the free Shooter Grunt here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4659647


That’s it for today, tune in next week for the voting results for the game jam and the painting contest, as well as more awesome news about all things OPR. :D

Happy Wargaming!

OPR GAME JAME #2 IS NOW LIVE!

Game Jam

Hi everyone,

The second ever OPR Game Jam is now live, and the theme will be:

SYNERGY

What does that mean you ask?

Synergy is a principle of game design where the interaction between two systems leads to a greater outcome than just the sum of their parts.

This could mean having synergetic interactions between different weapons, special rules, unit types, terrain, or just the core systems of the game itself.

If you want to watch some videos talking about Synergy in games, check these out:

So, did those videos get you pumped up to design an awesome game?

Then head over to our Discord server to share your ideas: https://discord.gg/djBydgk

You now have 48hrs to design your game, and send in your submission by:

  • UK – 8PM BST Sunday November 15th
  • USA East Coast – 3PM ET Sunday November 15th
  • USA West Coast – Noon PT Sunday November 15th
  • Europe – 9PM CET Sunday November 15th
  • Japan – 4AM JST Monday November 16th
  • Australia – 5AM AEST Monday November 16th

Check out the Game Jam page for more info on submissions: https://itch.io/jam/oprgj2

Submission Rules:

  1. The game has to follow the theme.
  2. The game must fit on a single sheet, using the provided template:
    • The front page must contain all of the game’s core rules.
    • The back page may optionally contain rules on unit creation or special rules.
  3. Every game must be submitted along with the following:
    • A visual moodboard for the game. We recommend using BeFunky (it’s free).
    • (Optional) Pictures of you playing the game, the miniatures, the table, etc.

Please make sure to submit your game in PDF format so that it’s easy for everyone to read it on mobile and desktop!

We have created an example game (not following the theme) for you to see what a correct submission should look like, and if you need more inspiration you can check out our one-off games to see how you can fit a full experience on just one page. Make sure to also take a look at our last jam’s game submissions for even more awesome examples!

Finally we wanted to remind everyone that the most important thing is to create a game that has interesting mechanics and an engaging core gameplay loop, and not a perfectly balanced grand strategy game.

You could focus on creating a small one-off encounter for example (like a rowdy bar fight, or an exciting airplane dogfight), or maybe make a game that follows a short linear story. Either way, just try to make something fun to play, regardless of its size. :)

Happy Designing!

FTL Updates + Game Jam Today

Collaboration, Game Jam, Game Update, Quickplay Armies, Video Content

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got a large update for Warfleets: FTL, the Game Jam #2 starts, a new collaboration with CobraMode, as well as some other stuff for you to dig into.

Let’s get to it!


Game Jam #2 Starts Today

Before we start, we wanted to remind everyone that the OPR Game Jam starts today!

The jam is going to start at the following times:

  • UK – 8PM BST Friday November 13th
  • USA East Coast – 3PM ET Friday November 13th
  • USA West Coast – Noon PT Friday November 13th
  • Europe – 9PM CET Friday November 13th
  • Japan – 4AM JST Saturday November 14th
  • Australia – 5AM AEST Saturday November 14th

The sign up is free, and you can join anytime before the 48hrs submission deadline, so don’t worry if you join a little late: https://itch.io/jam/oprgj2

When the jam begins we’ll be making a new post to reveal the theme, so watch out!


Warfleets: FTL Updates

FTL has been out for a few months now, and after a lot of exciting matches, playtesting and community feedback, we’ve now ready to release our first big patch for the game.

This update serves to address lots of balance issues across the board, making shooting overall a bit more reliable, and nerfing ramming to be less deadly. Overall we think this is a step in the right direction balance wise, but we’d like to remind everyone that the game is still in Early Access, so there may be bigger changes in the future.

Core Rules

  • Lowered number of objectives to D3+1
  • Lowered the Eva and Def value of all units by 1
  • Re-worked ramming to deal max. 2 damage
  • Blast range increased to 4″
  • Tsunami Cannon now has Ran 12″ and Acc 2, and may only be taken once per fleet
  • Re-named weapon upgrades with “Turret” in them to avoid confusion

Factions

  • Nomads – Clarified that Gravity Traps are placed when activated
  • Nomads – Clarified that System Overrider is for a single activation
  • Progenitors – Baryon Guns now have Acc 6
  • Progenitors – Neutron Cannons now have Acc 6 and Str 2
  • Xenos – Spike Launchers now have Acc 4 and Str 2

Dark Elves vs Lust Daemons Quickplay

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!

With a new big box of fantasy models on the horizon, we thought it would be cool to create some quickplay armies for you to get your new models into the game ASAP. This set features the vicious Dark Elves vs the twisted Lust Daemons. Note that as part of this set we’ve updated the Dark Elves army to v2.6.

Dark Elves

  • 1x Snake Lady
  • 5x Snake Sisters
  • 5x Snake Sisters w/ Shard Halberds
  • 5x Winged Sisters w/ Javelins

Lust Daemons

  • 1x Champion of Lust w/ Ritual Hammer
  • 10x Lust Warriors
  • 10x Lust Beast Riders
  • 1x Razor-Flail Chariot

The Dark Elves in this set focus on bringing a lot of Snake Sisters supported by Winged Sisters and a hero. The list comes with solid ranged and melee options across the board, as well as a powerful Snake Lady which dashes out lots of AP(4) attacks.

The Lust Daemons on the other side focus on high speed, with both Lust Beast Riders and a Razor-Flail Chaiot. The list is great at strategic assaults to take out the enemy on the charge, and also comes with a solid core of Lust Warriors and a Champion of Lust to hold the line.


Collaboration with CobraMode

This month our friends at CobraMode were so kind to provide all of our Tier 2 patrons with some extra models as a free gift, with the Mazigh Raider and Hanzaki Ninja.

Tier 2 patrons can download them here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/43388557

CobraMode is a small team that provides super stylish tabletop miniatures for wargames and RPG’s set in their own fantasy universe. They have a Patreon where they release new models every month, and patrons also get a 50% discount code to their MMF Store.

If that wasn’t enough, they also provide free 5e stats for each miniature, as well as a welcome pack, throwback minis, custom bases and more!

To help you get started with their awesome models, here’s a ~300pts quickplay list you can use to play with their Mikata Wetlands models in Age of Fantasy: Skirmish.

Mikata Wetlands (Ratmen)

  • Hikaga Sage – Warlock w/ Wizard(2)
  • Hanzaki Cavalry – Warlord on Gigantic Rat
  • Hanzaki Ninja – Night Scouts
  • Hikiga Artillery – Weapons Team w/ Poison Mortar
  • Hikaga Swordsman – Rat Ogre
  • Hikaga Bruiser – Rat Ogre

The Hanzaki Ninja is already available for free, so make sure to check out the army here.


Free Skeleton Warrior

Last week we released a free Assault Grunt on our Thingiverse page, so this week it’s time to release a beautiful fantasy model from our new line of miniatures.

Grab the free Skeleton Warrior here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4652194


AI vs AI Battle Report

Last but not least, Sad and Lonely Gamer has posted up a new Grimdark Future battle report, this time with two fully AI controlled armies facing off against each other. Definitely a very interesting match to check out!


That’s it for now, keep your eyes peeled for a new update later today in which we reveal the game jam theme with lots of details!

Happy Wargaming!

Here is how it works:

That’s it, now you can just sit back and wait for your new models to be delivered!

IMPORTANT: The only way we can provide such low prices is by requiring you to purchase the STL files from us first. You will receive an e-mail to provide the STL files as proof of purchase within 24 hours of buying the 3D printed models. If you don’t provide the STL files the sale will be rejected!

Jakob’s Path Chapter 4

This week we released Chapter 4 of 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 available.

Chapter 4 – A bit shaken but still hopeful after the loss of many men, the Battle Brothers push on following the tracker’s signal. Little did they know that that simple signal was going to lead to a clash for the ages…

Game Related Updates

These past few weeks have been kind of crazy as we’ve had to deal with a lot of background stuff, but fret not, we’ve also been scribbling down lots of game related updates that we’re going to implement!

The Custodian Brothers are going to get an update that adds a lot of missing units, and we’re also going to be updating the Halflings adding more stuff to them as well. Then we’re also going to be heavily re-working the Gangs of Hive City list in preparation for… something cool. ;)

For the other games, we’re currently working on a large FTL update that’s going to fix some of the balancing issues we’ve found through more playtesting, and for the Arena Games we’re halfway through development of a custom warband creator so that you can use any models you have for them!


Battle Reports

Starting off with a bang, we’ve got a 3750pts solo match of Orc Marauders vs Plague Brothers by Sad and Lonely Gamer, which features two absolutely massive armies.

Then we’ve got a new batrep by Battle Knights, featuring 1000pts of Halflings vs Humans, in which two badass Cockatrices go berserk!

Finally Stonehorse Gaming has published another AoF: Regiments tactics video, this time discussing the deployment phase and various strategies for how to best deploy your army.


That’s it for today, hope you enjoyed this quick update, and we’re looking forward to the Game Jam in November to see all of your crazy and awesome game ideas!

Happy Wargaming!

New Armies, Paper Minis + More!

2D Print, Collaboration, Game Update, New Release, Painting Competition, Video Content

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got 2 New Armies, Painting Contest results, a bigger Store Discount, lots of Paper Miniatures, as well as great news for Arena Season 2 and a new Battle Report.

Let’s get to it!


New Armies

As announced last week, we’ve got 2 new extremely powerful armies coming at you, the Giant Tribes and Custodian Brothers!

The Giant Tribes are a new army for Age of Fantasy which is made up purely of giant models, with tons of different varieties for you to try out. This is a totally unique army for Age of Fantasy, as you can now field an entire army made up of just 1-2 models, or ally massive giants with your existing army.

The Custodian Brothers used to be part of the Battle Brother Detachments, but we’ve decided to split them off and give them the makeover that they deserve! The new Custodian Brothers are much more durable and dish out a lot more attacks, making for a tiny army of extremely powerful units.

Check out the army folders in the respective game pages to download them!


Painting Contest Results

This month we ran the very first Painting Contest, and now the results are in!

The winner is:

New Patreon Stretch Goals

As our Patreon following keeps growing, we want to provide more and more value to all of our subscribers, and so we’ve decided to add a series of stretch goals!

The stretch goals are simple:

  • If we hit 700 subscribers we will give a 30% discount code for our store
  • If we hit 850 subscribers we will give a 40% discount code for our store
  • If we hit 1000 subscribers we will give a 50% discount code for our store

Right now the discount codes are only available for Tier 3 patrons, however we’re currently also thinking of re-working the structure of our tiers, so in the future you may very well see the discount codes being provided to all of our tiers…


Patreon Tier 1 Removal

As you already read from the title, we are going to be closing down Tier 1 at the end of the month (31st of October). We know this is probably not news you were expecting to get, so we wanted to give you a heads up and an explanation of what is going on.

Over the past year the project has been growing and expanding, and with it our offering has become bigger and bigger. As we keep adding more content at Tier 2 and Tier 3, we noticed that over time Tier 1 has become a bit redundant, and so we decided to shut it down and ask people to switch to Tier 2.

In order to make the switch that much sweeter, starting in October we’re going to be providing all of the PSD rewards at Tier 2 as well. :)

We’re sorry for any inconvenience this might cause, and we’re happy to see you as part of Tier 2 and share more awesome content with you!


Game Updates

With new model kits coming out left and right, we’ve decided to update some of our existing armies, and we’re also going to release a couple of new ones in the coming weeks.

We’ve also decided to streamline the way that upgrade lists for Battle Brother Detachments, Havoc Brother Disciples and Havoc Warrior Disciples are displayed, making them a bit easier to read and use.

Looking at the latest version of the Battle Brother Detachments you might notice that the Custodian Brothers are missing, and that is because they’re going to get their very own army book soon!

Here the changes in today’s update:

Prime Brothers

  • Added new units: Prime ATV, Anti-Grav Tank, Prime Speeder, Support Turret
  • Modified and condensed hero units
  • Added new options for heroes with Combat Bikes, Grave Armor, Veteran Infantry and Repair
  • Assault Squads and Prime Brothers can now be upgraded to Veteran Infantry
  • Prime Brothers can now be upgraded with Grave Armor and Heavy Machineguns
  • Heavy Anti-Grav Transport and Destroyer Tanks now have Tough(18)

Robot Legions

  • Added new units: Destroyer Robot Snakes, Tri-Scorpion Pistoleer, Heavy Annihilator
  • Tripod Robots can be updated with new weapons

Elven Jesters

  • Heroes can now be upgraded with Jetbikes

Battle Reports

Once again Sad and Lonely Gamer has released a brutal solo battle report for Grimdark Future, this time featuring 2000pts of Wolf Brothers vs Orc Marauders.

This week we’ve also got a new channel covering our games. Battle Knights have released an awesome Age of Fantasy battle report that serves both as a how-to-play video, as well as just an enjoyable battle. They put up Halflings vs Chivalrous Kingdoms, and got some really stunning models and terrain!


That’s it everyone, next week we’ll hopefully have even more game updates for you, and soon enough we’ll start bothering you with Game Jam #2 updates… ;)

Happy Wargaming!

Print-on-Demand Test, New Releases + Videos

2D Print, 3D Print, New Release, Painting Competition, Video Content

Hi everyone,

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


Print-on-Demand Test

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 onepageanon@gmail.com 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 Release Overview

Here we are in October, and once again we have a TON of content for you on Patreon!

This month we’re continuing with our Alien Hives and Mummified Undead releases, and we’ve also got a new Marauders Fleet for you as well. On top of that there’s some new games and expansions coming, as well as a bunch of other stuff.

Arena Games Season 1 + Much More!

3D Print, New Release, Painting Competition

Hi everyone,

This week we’re super excited to release 2 more brand new games, and we have a couple announcements like our October painting competition, 3D models with pre-supports, an FTL fleet builder, and more.

Let’s get to it!


Arena Games – Season 1 Released

Seems like this month we can’t go a week without having some new game announcements, and today we’ve finally released Season 1 of our arena games to the public!

GF: Arena & AoF: Arena are hex-based arena games that play lightning fast and are centered around warband customization to find the best and craziest combos.

When preparing your warband for battle you’ll have the option between picking different combinations of models, as well as equipping them with upgrades from a selection of faction-specific and common cards.

During the game each player will also have a tactics board which provides models with additional special actions, reactions and objectives that they can use to gain an advantage. These tactics boards are also customizable, with players being able to mix-and-match from a selection of faction-specific and common abilities.

Season 1 features the Battle Brothers, Orc Marauders and Alien Hives for GF, whilst for AoF it features the Humans, Vampiric Undead and the Mummified Undead. On top of that you’ll also get common upgrades and tactics boards, model stat cards, hex-arena boards, play tokens, and everything you need to get going.

The game comes with a one-page version of the rules, as well as an extended rulebook that explains everything in detail with lots of really helpful diagrams and examples.

Season 1 is available for free on our website, but only comes with basic black & white components, and no miniatures. If you want the full color version with all miniatures, then you can find them on WargameVault.

Season 2 is going to be released on Patreon this month, and we’re going to be adding new warbands every month unit there are 3 new warbands for each game. The season will also feature new hex-boards, common assets, etc.

We are planning to release Season 2 to the public at the beginning of next year, and after that a new season will be released every 6 months.

These are some of the most fun games we’ve made, with the high level of customization and quick gameplay making for a very addictive loop. We can’t wait to see more people play them and share their own crazy combos!

Check out the games here:

Pre-Supports for 3D Models

In our continuous effort to provide you with more value every month, we’re happy to announce that from October on all of our 3D models will be pre-supported.

We know it sucks that we didn’t have pre-supported models for September, and we’re looking into ways to solve that from a logistical perspective, so that supporters can have both of our new armies fully pre-supported.

Right now we honestly don’t have enough sales from our old Sisters and Dwarf models to justify the cost of having them pre-supported, however if we see that demand goes up to the point where it’s financially viable, then we will definitely do it. :)


Battle Sisters Army Released

Over the past 6 months we’ve released a full Battle Sisters Army in collaboration with Garin from The Makers Cult, which came out looking pretty damn awesome.

We’ve had single units available for sale until now, but with lots of demand for the full army being available, we are more than happy to release the full army as a bundle.

The complete Battle Sisters Army is now available for sale as a bundle with a hefty 20% discount, and if you’re also a patron at Tier 3, then you will get an additional 20% discount on top!

Get the full army here: https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-model-collections/battle-sisters-bundle


FTL Fleet Builder

Warfleets: FTL was only released last week, but we already got some great new for you. Schnickers from our Discord/Forum put together a neat fleet builder, which allows you to quickly and easily put together your force.

All of the common assets as well as the faction specific assets are included, with unit stats using easy to read symbols to know what is what, and it even comes with a printing feature. Truly great work!

Check it out here: https://opr-warfleets-ftl.herokuapp.com/

Warfleets: FTL + Much More!

3D Print, Collaboration, Game Update, New Release, Video Content, Writing Jam

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got a truly gargantuan update for you, with a new game, writing jam results, october previews, game updates, and much more.

Let’s get to it!


Warfleets: FTL

The wait is finally over everyone, Warfleets: FTL is now available to the public!

When I was first approached by Austin Peasley back in 2014 about the making of a spaceship battles game, I could’ve never imagined that we’d be here 6 years later releasing a full spaceship game of our own.

The journey has been long, with many iterations of the game, and even some moments of true despair, but we’re really happy that this game is now available for download, and can’t wait to see player’s reactions to it!

For those of you that are hearing about Warfleets: FTL for the first time, this is our take on a fast and furious spaceship battles game, which offers tons of fleet customization and exciting space battles.

Players take on the roles of commanders of a fully personalized fleet, which is made up of ships, heroes and upgrades from a common set of assets, as well as special assets from one of 6 interstellar factions.

Each faction comes with its own selection of ships, heroes and upgrades, and there is also a wide selection of legendary fleets, giving players the chance to step into the shoes of legendary FTL admirals.

As always, the core rules and faction book are completely free, and they offer countless hours of explosive spaceship battles… but what if you want more?

If you support us on Patreon, you can get access to the Full Rulebook, which adds a ton of advanced rules that allow you to further customize your games, with extra missions, deployment styles, events, and much more.

The Full Rulebook also has rules that allow you to re-use widgets from other games, such as blast markers, order dice, ordnance tokens, command dials, and many more.

Here a full breakdown of what you get in the Full Rulebook:

  • Terrain Placement Rules
  • Multiple Deployment Styles
  • Extra Missions
  • Boarding Actions
  • Random Events
  • Battlefield Phenomena
  • Terrain & Objective Effects
  • Fog of War Rules
  • Catastrophic Damage Rules
  • Order Dice Rules
  • Shields & Defense Tokens Rules
  • Scanner Ranges Rules
  • Rules for Planetary Control Games
  • Rules for Multiplayer Games
  • Rules for Kitchen Table Games

If you don’t have any spaceship models, you can also pick up our very own 2D and 3D models on Patreon, where we’re releasing a new fleet every month.

This month we’ve released the 2D Empire Fleet and the 3D Empire Fleet, and if you stick with us you’ll have the full set of all fleets as they’re all released.

Next month we’ll also be releasing a set of 2D space terrain with lots of asteroids fields, destroyed ships, space nebulas and more, which you can use to pretty up your table when playing both with 2D and 3D models.

Alright, this should be enough of a preview, now it’s time for you to check out the games yourself. Make sure to join our Discord Server to share pictures of your battles and provide your feedback and ideas!

Get the game here: https://onepagerules.com/portfolio/warfleets-ftl/

Note that the Full Rulebook is going to be available exclusively on Patreon until we feel that the game is polished enough for a “final” release, at which point it will be removed and put for sale on our WargameVault store.


Writing Jam Results

A few weeks ago we ran our very first OPR Writing Jam, and finally the results are in!

The writing jam gives participants the opportunity to share their own take on the stories taking place in the OPR universe, writing a one-page story in just 48hrs based on the same single theme: INFINITE LOOP

Check out all submissions here: https://itch.io/jam/oprwj1/entries

Check out the voting results here: https://itch.io/jam/oprwj1/results

All of the submissions were really awesome to read, and we want to highlight a couple of our favorite ones here.

  • A Dull Ache by Joe Fonseca – Trooper Hark of the Human Defense Force faces the reality of war on a once beautiful planet.
  • Pain of Victory by Grim – Stuck in a time loop, Kr’tchikr Steelbiter must fight tooth and nail to break the cycle and survive the battle with his litter-compatriots.
  • Hunt by Matteo Cantelmi – Follow a cohort of Machine Cult Infiltrators as they track down a rebel leader on a war-torn world.

September Releases – Last Chance!

Before we continue, we wanted to remind everyone that if you want to get all of the amazing stuff from the September releases, then it’s best you join now and download everything before it is removed.

Check out all of the content you get here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/41104102

September has really been a crazy month, we tripled the amount of different units we released for 3D printing, we’ve doubled the amount of armies we released for 2D printing, plus we’ve got 3 new games for everyone.

If you’re not a patron yet, please consider subscribing, as this is the only way we can keep the project alive. Not only do you get a ton of extra content, but also our eternal gratitude.


October Release Previews

Dwarf Army Bundle Released

Over the past 6 months we’ve released a full Dwarf Army in collaboration with Kyoushuneko Miniatures, which came out looking pretty damn awesome.

Whilst we had single units available for sale until now, some players asked us if it was possible to get the entire army at once, and well… your wish is our command!

The complete Dwarf Army is now available for sale as a bundle with a hefty 20% discount, and if you’re also a patron at Tier 3, then you will get an additional 20% discount on top!

Get the full army here: https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-model-collections/dwarf-army-bundle


Age of Fantasy: Regiment Videos

The great folks at Stonehorse Gaming have been releasing more and more AoF:R videos, with an awesome how to play video and a battle report. Now they’re also adding new tactics videos which cover all aspects of the game one by one, and are definitely worth checking out.


Three Men and a Wargame Podcast

Last but not least, we wanted to give a shoutout to the Three Men and a Wargame podcast, who were so kind to cover our September releases in full detail.

Check them out here: https://threemenandawargame.podbean.com/e/whats-in-the-box-1600916529/


That’s it for today, but don’t worry, just because we released FTL today doesn’t mean we’re done making games, so keep your eyes peeled for more stuff that’s on the horizon. ;)

Happy Wargaming!
