FTL Campaign Rules + Mission Packs

2D Print, 3D Print, Game Jam, Game Update, New Release, Video Content

Hi everyone,

I’m going to try and keep this update short so as not to bore you, but we’ve got some important content updates for you. Right now we’re focusing on bringing more value for our Games & 2D Rewards patrons, as well as to bring new and exciting game content for everyone. It’s been a busy week, but what we got is awesome. :D

Let’s get to it!


OPR Game Jam #3 – Starting next week!

The third OPR game jam is starting next week, 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  May 14th, at 8PM UK time / 3PM ET time, to May 16th, 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!

Sign up for the game jam here (it’s free): https://itch.io/jam/oprgj3


Warfleets FTL – Campaign Rules

After last week’s reveal of the AI rules for FTL, it’s now time for the next reveal. :)

The campaign rules for FTL were designed to be a simply adaptation of our tried and tested campaign rules, but of course with a spaceship battle twist to them. These rules give you multiple ways to set up campaigns to play with your friends, including a leveling up system and lots of random events.

Combining the campaign rules with the AI rules is actually a great way to play narrative solo campaigns, so if you don’t have anyone to play with make sure to check those out!

Grab the rules here: https://onepagerules.com/portfolio/warfleets-ftl/


New Mission Packs

This month we released the first mission pack on Patreon, with 4 brand new missions:

  • Grimdark Future – Storm Clash
  • GF: Firefight – The Dark Night
  • Age of Fantasy – Blood & Glory
  • AoF: Skirmish – Ghost Panic

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!


New Paper Terrain

To give players even more goodies, we’re now also permanently including paper terrain on Patreon, with new sets being released every few months. Right now we only have a sci-fi set available, but a new fantasy set will be released in May.

The terrain features 7 different pieces, with houses, containers and ruined walls, and it comes in 4 different varieties (urban, rusty, overgrown, snowy), so you get a total of 28 pieces to mix and match however you like!


The Bodyguards Gang Released

Speaking of 2D printing, we’ve also got a new set of paper minis on Patreon with the Bodyguards Gang and their adorable puppies!


New Physical Miniatures on Etsy

Don’t care for 2D printing or 3D printing? Well then we’ve got you covered, because now all of the minis we released in April have been uploaded to our Etsy Store.


New Patreon Release

For those of you that are into 3D printing (or that want to know what will be on Etsy next month), make sure to check out our full May Release Overview.


Painting Video

Last but not least, we’ve got a new painting video by Paintman Journeying.


That’s it for today, just a quick update. Make sure to sign up for the game jam, and we’ll see you next week. :)

Happy Wargaming!

Duchies of Vinci Rules + AI Rules Update

3D Print, Game Jam, Game Update, Video Content

Hi everyone,

April seems like it was an infinitely long month, with so many things happening that I can barely keep track anymore. We’ve released the April fools models, we had our 7 year anniversary, and we also released a brand new faction!

We’ve also had the fortune to be featured by a couple of big youtubers, which has really helped the project grow over the past month, and we’re going to make sure to give back to the community by further expanding our model ranges and providing more new content every month starting in May.

There’s lots of stuff to talk about, so let’s get to it!


OPR Game Jam #3 – 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  May 14th, at 8PM UK time / 3PM ET time, to May 16th, at 8PM UK time / 3PM ET time.

New Fantasy Army – Duchies of Vinci

It’s been a while since we released a new army, so it’s very exciting to bring you a brand new faction to play, which ties in with our newly released models on Patreon (check them out).

So, who are the Duchies of Vinci?

The Duchies of Vinci are highly reserved and guarded southern domains, which are some of the richest and most powerful lands in all of Tyria. Their armies consist of heavily armed ranged troops, assisted by a variety of mechanical creations with basic artificial intelligence.

They’re a very interesting army for Age of Fantasy, because they rely more on ranged troops and weird contraptions, rather than sheer melee strength. In fact, they’re probably one of the weakest melee factions, so make sure to keep your distance!

Due to the evolving nature of the miniatures we’re making for them, we expect there to be quite a few more changes to the army list in the future, and we’ll make sure to keep you updated as they come along. :)


AI Rules released for Warfleets: FTL

There have been lots of people asking for solo rules for FTL since the game was released, so today we’re happy to announce that a brand new set of AI rules has been released!

These AI rules are in many ways similar from the ones we released for the other games, with a few tweaks to make them work for FTL. Compared to the other games the FTL ones do require a bit more player input however, since there is no easy way to automate how specific the AI should be about pivoting and firing angles for example.

In any case these rules are good fun, and they’re a great way to get into the game if you don’t have anyone around to play, or to set up a coop match vs AI opponents. :)

Grab them from the game page here: https://onepagerules.com/portfolio/warfleets-ftl/


General AI Rules Update

Whilst working on the AI rules for FTL, we also went ahead and updated the AI rules for all of our other games. The changes aren’t huge, but they should help the flow of the match.

One of the biggest issues with the previous rules was that the AI was far too predictable, and so it was very easy to exploit it after coming to grips with it. This new version of the rules sets to improve that by making the activation order a bit more random, so that you can’t predict exactly what the AI is going to do next.

We’ve also added some other important changes, such as making the AI deployment a bit less swingy, as well as changing how the AI prioritizes targets to make a little more sense. Finally we’ve also added a new optional challenge bonus for the AI, which should help it out when it’s struggling to keep up with the player.


Mission Packs Coming

Starting in May, we’re going to be releasing 4 new missions every month on Patreon, one for each of our main games (that’s almost 50 missions a year). These missions will be focused on fun new ways to play, with interesting objectives and special rules to spice things up.

The plan is to release new missions every month, and then after a year we bundle them all in a pack and provide them for purchase on WGV, so if for whatever reason you’re not able to stick with us for a year, you’ll be able to get them later as well. We’re looking forward to this new addition, and hope you like it too! :D


New Free Model on Cults 3D

Every month we add new free models to our Cults3D page, and this month we’ve added a City Guard from the Duchies of Vinci, bringing us up to 20 free models! :D

Get the models here: https://cults3d.com/en/users/onepagerules/creations


New Video Content


That’s it for this week, we hope that you enjoy the new Duchies of Vinci rules, and don’t forget to sign up for the Game Jam!

Happy Wargaming!

Quick Post before the Weekend

3D Print, Game Update, Video Content

Hi everyone,

Today I’ve just got a quick post for you, going over some army updates, as well as some new releases, plus a new painting tutorial. :)

Let’s get to it!


Army Updates

Today we’ve updated the Ghostly Undead army, giving it a complete makeover, and making it one of the most fun armies that we have in the game now. If you’ve had some interest in playing Ghostly Undead before, but didn’t enjoy their gameplay that much, then we highly recommend you take a look at this new and improved version!

Here’s the full changelog:

  • Added new units: Coach Chariot, Ghost Chariot
  • Sands of Time now gives the hero and her unit Regeneration
  • The Reap rule now deals additional wounds on defense rolls of 1
  • Mounted Reapers now have 6 attacks and can upgrade with Spectral Touch
  • Ghost Knights can now be upgraded with Stolen Time and Ghostly Overseer
  • Executioners can now be upgraded with Fear
  • Banshees now have Quality 3+ as well as Ambush and Chilling
  • Wraiths now have Quality 3+ as well as Ambush and Reap
  • Scythed Ghosts now have the Chilling rule
  • Revenants now have the Whirl rule
  • Mourner Banshees now have the Poison and Chilling rules
  • Ghost Swarms now have Quality 4+
  • Hexed Knights now have Flying and Spectral Touch
  • Dread Knights now have Quality 3+ and AP(1)

Note that since some units from the Ghostly Undead cross over to the Vampiric Undead, we have updated them as well in order to reflect these new rules.


Saurians on Etsy

Every week we’re adding a new army on our Etsy store, and now you can buy physical prints of our Robot Legions models here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/onepagerules

The models come in one piece, so no assembly is required. We also charge a fixed shipping price, regardless of how many models you order!

Note that due to some bugs in the system, a few of the units are currently missing, but they will be added ASAP. :)


Patreon News

This week we released a new set of paper miniatures with the TAO Coalition, and they came out looking gorgeous! This is one of our bigger releases, with a bunch of models to customize your army and create interesting lists.

Additionally we have also released two new sets of Game Aids for the Dwarves and the Battle Sisters, which feature themed rulers, dice and objective markers (with beer barrels and weapon caches counting from 1 to 6).


Painting Tutorial

Last but not least, here’s a new video showing off how to paint one of our Robot Flesh-Eaters. Make sure to subscribe to Paintman Journeying for more painting tutorials, featuring the official OPR models!


That’s it from me today, have a nice weekend everyone! :D

Happy Wargaming!

I QUIT (my other job)

2D Print, 3D Print, Collaboration, Game Update, Podcast

Hi everyone,

As many of you already know, OPR is run fully and solely by one person, which is me (hi!).

For the past 7 years I’ve been working on OPR in my free time, and have never paid myself a single cent from the money we made via subscriptions or store sales. In my mind I’ve always seen that money as a vote of confidence on your part, and it felt wrong to take that money for myself when I could instead invest it into providing you all with more content.

That was all very easy to manage whilst OPR was pretty small, but over the last few years the project has skyrocketed in popularity and has grown to be one of the top 10 biggest wargaming Patreons in the world, and by now this is in no way a one-man project anymore. Whilst I still take care of the majority of things, there are lots of people I hire to do stuff that I can’t, such as all of the awesome illustrations, paper miniatures and 3D print miniatures, and by now there are 10-15 people involved in OPR’s production every month.

I tried as hard as I could to keep doing this in my free time whilst still working a full-time job, which admittedly has not been very good for my own health over the past year, and so I’ve decided to finally pull the trigger and quit my job to dedicate myself to OPR full-time. By now OPR brings in enough money that I can pay myself a regular salary without having to feel guilty about compromising on releases, so don’t worry about things slowing down.

If anything, this means that I’ll now have more time to dedicate myself to OPR without going absolutely insane, and hopefully I’ll be able to improve my work-life balance as well, which has been suffering for too long now. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to do this, and hope that I can continue to provide you all with awesome games, miniatures, and more in the future. Thank you all for your support!

Alright, enough of that now, let’s get to the meat of this news post. :)


New Army Updates

Today we’re continuing with our army refresh updates, tackling the Infected Colonies. Until now this army was serviceable, but was lacking some oomph, with most units feeling very samey. In this new version we’ve overhauled the majority of units in the army, and have also added an army-wide Undead special rule to spice things up.

Here’s the full changelog:

  • Added new unit: Runners
  • All units now have the Undead rule
  • Hunter Champion and Hunters lost Fast but gained Ambush
  • Infected Champion now has Plague Command
  • Scientists can now upgrade to Psychic(2)
  • Zombies now have Regeneration
  • Infected Dogs now have Scout and Rending
  • Boomers now have more attacks and Poison
  • Chelonians now have more attacks and new upgrades
  • Infected Swarms now have Strider and Blast(3)
  • Ravens now have an additional AP(1) attack
  • Vultures now have Ambush and new upgrades

Speaking of the Undead rule, over time we’ve found that this has become one of the most valuable special rules in the game, and that it gave a little bit too much staying power to your units. In order to balance things out a little, units now take wounds from Undead on rolls of 1-2, instead of only on rolls of 1.

Here’s all of the armies that have been updated:

  • Grimdark – Havoc Brother Disciples
  • Fantasy – Ghostly Undead
  • Fantasy – Mummified Undead
  • Fantasy – Ossified Undead
  • Fantasy – Shadow Stalkers
  • Fantasy – Vampiric Undead

OnePageFools Podcast – Episode 3

The latest episode of the unofficial OPR podcast is available now, this time featuring none other than Ethan Seward, the brilliant illustrator behind all of our paper miniatures!


Robot Legions on Etsy

Every week we’re adding a new army on our Etsy store, and now you can buy physical prints of our Robot Legions models here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/onepagerules

The models come in one piece, so no assembly is required. We also charge a fixed shipping price, regardless of how many models you order!


New Free Models on Cults 3D

Every month we add new free models to our Cults3D page, and this month we’ve added a Saurian Guardian as well as a Robot Flesh-Eater, bringing us up to 19 free models! :D

Get the models here: https://cults3d.com/en/users/onepagerules/creations


Patreon News

On the Patreon side of things, this week we released the final chapter of Darkness Within, our Age of Fantasy narrative campaign, which will be available exclusively on Patreon until the end of March. If you are interested in reading an awesome story set in the AoF universe, or are looking for new ways to play, make sure to check it out!

This week we also released our third set of Hive City Gangs paper miniatures, with the Miners Gang. The miniatures feature gangers with different mining equipment and weapons, as well as two trusty canine sidekicks.

This month our friends at Bite the Bullet were so kind to provide all of our Tier 2 patrons with an extra model as a free gift, with the fierce Kalista the Gladiator.

Find out more here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/48494745

Finally, speaking of 3D models, this week we’ve added two sets of themed bases for Dwarves and Battle Sisters, so all of our supporters can enjoy a total of 88 unique bases!


That’s it for today, thanks again for all of your support throughout these years! :D

Happy Wargaming!

Game Updates, Etsy Store, Painting Videos + More

3D Print, Game Update, Video Content, Writing Jam

Hi everyone,

Over the last week I’ve been extremely busy putting together a lot of new and exciting stuff for you. We’ve got some small but important game updates for you, as well as some army updates. We’ve now got a store where you can buy our models if you don’t have a 3D printer, and we’ve partnered up to create painting videos for our models.

On top of that I’ve been working hard on a lot of new patreon stuff, with a massive release for next month, adding a ton of new stuff like themed bases and game aids, as well as continuing the development of sellswords and the new arena updates. March is going to be a great month in terms of both games and models, so today’s update is just the beginning of lots of cool things to come.

Anyway, let’s get to it!


Writing Jam Submissions – Vote Now!

Last weekend we ran the 2nd ever OPR Writing Jam, and now it’s time to get your votes in. There’s lots of cool stories to read, so make sure to check them all out and give your honest feedback: https://itch.io/jam/oprwj2/entries


Game & Army Updates

Today we’ve updated all of the core rules, basic rulebooks, full rulebooks, starter sets and quickplay rules with a couple of small things that should hopefully clear up some of the most commonly asked questions, as well as provide a little more balance to the game.

Snipers don’t ignore cover anymore, giving units a slightly higher chance to survive if they stay in cover, which should be especially useful in Firefight and Skirmish. The Phalanx rule has also been modified, making it more useful against cavalry units and chariots, which should raise their value a bit more for their high price.

We’ve also updated the Robot Legion rules, giving Wardens a bit more utility with a new special rule, as well as modifying Support Platforms and the Fortress of Destruction to cover some models that were not playable before. The Blessing of Change rule has also been modified, hopefully giving players a bit more of chance to compete with Disciples of Changes at shorter ranges.

Here’s the full list of changes:

Grimdark + Fantasy – General Rules

  • Clarified the Indirect and Tough rules
  • Sniper doesn’t ignore cover anymore
  • Phalanx now ignores special rule effects from charging

Grimdark + Fantasy – Campaign Rules

  • Heroes now become 5pts cheaper/costlier when they gain an injury/talent trait

Grimdark + Fantasy – Disciples of Change

  • Blessing of Change now only affects enemies over 18″ away

Grimdark – Robot Legions

  • Wardens and their unit now ignore the Slow rule
  • Doom Tanks now have 36″ range on their Doom Cannon
  • Tripod Robots now have AP(4) and Blast(3) on their Doom Blaster
  • Support Platforms can now have an Overseer Pilot
  • Fortress of Destruction can now have a Nanobot Wraith-Shard

Etsy Store Open Now!

Don’t have a 3D printer and want our models? Take a look at our new Etsy Store, where you can buy the models already printed for you: https://www.etsy.com/shop/onepagerules

The models come in one piece, so no assembly is required. We also charge a fixed shipping price, regardless of how many models you order!

Right now only the Alien Hives models are available, but we’re planning on adding one new army every week, so that within a few weeks the store will be complete. :)


Patreon News

This week we’ve had a couple of new releases on Patreon, with the 2D Havoc Dwarves and Alliance Fleet, as well as chapter 4 of Darkness Within, plus rules for Havoc Dwarves i arena.

Finally we’ve made a post detailing the March Previews + Roadmap, and it’s going to be a glorious month, with $275+ worth of stuff for just $10!

Writing Jam Start + Sellswords Revealed!

3D Print, New Release, Writing Jam

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got just a small but very important update, covering the writing jam, a brand new game, as well as showing off previews of the February model releases. Outside of that this week has been pretty quiet, but that’s because we’re working on a lot of new things that we think will blow your mind in the near future…

Let’s get to it!

New Early Access Game: Sellswords

We’ve been teasing the release of our next game for a long time, but now the day has finally come and the first draft of Sellswords is available in early access on Patreon.

What is Sellswords you ask?

Sellswords is a solo/coop skirmish adventure game set in our fantasy universe, and it combines wargame elements with RPG elements to give you a truly unique experience that can be played with any fantasy miniatures you have!

Up to 4 players join together to form a band of sellswords, bold mercenaries hired to do all sorts of dangerous jobs, as well as a colorful variety of different companions, who set off on adventures fighting monsters, uncovering mysteries, and finding precious loot.

Each hero can be customized with a variety of stats, equipment and skills, giving you everything you need to create the perfect character for your miniatures. Throughout the game heroes will earn XP and level up their abilities, as well as potentially earn lasting injuries or even die if something goes terribly wrong (the world is a dangerous place).

To play the game you’ll need a small 2’x2′ space, as well as a handful of monster miniatures, which are controlled by the game. The game is designed with full miniature-agnosticism in mind, so you will be able to adapt the rules to fit what you have.

Right now the game is still in development, and as we progress we will be showing off different ways to play, from narrative campaigns to a full-fledged custom campaign creator.

We’re really happy to finally be moving the development of Sellswords forward, as we know many of you have been itching for a dungeon crawling RPG-like game for a while now, and we hope you’ll like it. :)

Support us on Patreon to access the early access draft, and get a ton more stuff as well.


February 3D Previews

The production of our 3D models for the February release has been moving forward quite well, so here’s some previews for you!


That’s it for today, looking forward to seeing all of your submission for the writing jam!

Happy Wargaming!

Army Updates, Batrep + More

2D Print, 3D Print, Collaboration, Game Update, Video Content, Writing Jam

Hi everyone,

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!


OPR Writing Jam #2 – Sign Up Now!

Did you always want to share the stories of your glorious army? Or maybe expand on the lore of our games with your own spin on things? Well then join us for next week’s jam!

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.

Check out the last OPR Writing Jam to get a better idea of how it works, and read all of the 13 awesome stories written by our community!


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!


Patreon News

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.

If you’re not supporting OPR on Patreon already then you’re missing out. Support us at the $5 tier to get $50+ worth of content, or at the $10 tier to get $100+ worth of content!


Grimdark Future: Firefight – Solo Batrep

Writing Jam, Arena Changes + More

3D Print, Collaboration, Writing Jam

Hi everyone,

This week I’ve got just a small update for you. Over the past week I’ve spent most of my time on the delivery of the January rewards, but I’ve also managed to sneak in some time to work on a possible major update for the arena games.

I’ve also been collecting a lot of feedback regarding all of our mainline games over the past few months, looking at what could be improved about the core rules as well as the special rules, and in the coming weeks I’ll be working on a major update for those as well.

Anyway, time for the actual updates!


OPR Writing Jam #2 – Sign Up Now!

It’s almost time for the next writing jam, which is a 48hr story writing marathon, focused on writing stories in the OPR universe. Everyone is welcome to join, and it’s completely free, so if you like writing stories, this one is for you!

The writing jam takes place from February 19th to February 21st, it’s completely free to join, and you can sign up here.

Major Arena Re-Work

The arena games were originally created to be just some quick games that I could release in order to get more use out of the 2D minis, whilst also providing everyone with fun games to play. Over time however, the scope of the games has grown, and I have found myself investing a considerable amount of time into them each month.

Unfortunately however, the games are not being played a lot, and so it’s getting hard for me to justify the time investment on them. I have been trying to figure out what the reasons might be for the arena games not to be played a lot, and I have identified 3 main causes:

  • There is a misunderstanding that the arena games are card games
  • Not everyone wants to print and cut lots of paper components
  • The hex based combat is not something that everyone enjoys

If the arena games are to stay, they need to be made more accessible so that new players give them a shot and find out what is actually fun about them. With that in mind, I have devised a simple plan in order to lower the barrier to entry and get more players to give them a shot:

  • All of the game components are being re-worked so that they don’t look like cards anymore, which should hopefully remove some of the confusion
  • The game is being re-worked so that the only thing you need to print are the hex boards, and no cutting will be required anymore, so you can play it with the rules on your phone
  • There will be an additional sheet that helps you convert the game to be played fully without a hex board, so you get all of the arena goodness in a more traditional format

Finally, as this new version becomes more complete, I will showcase the game on our Discord and play with the community via Roll20 and TTS, so more people get a chance to see it in action before trying it.

This newest version is currently in development, and you can access it on Patreon already. After having played it a handful of times I have to say that it’s much faster and more engaging than the current print-and-play version, so I’m excited to see more players get their hands on it!

Just a Small Update

3D Print, Collaboration, Game Update

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got just a small update for you, with some news on Darkness Within, a new Age of Fantasy Unit, an awesome Collaboration, plus some 3D Printing news.

Let’s get to it!


Darkness Within – Chapter 1

This week we released the first chapter of Darkness Within, which starts of the adventure of princess Misha in her fight against the terrifying Vampiric Undead.

Chapter 1 starts off the story with a daring escape from Starigrad, where Misha and Igor have to team up to make it out of the city alive. It features 2 action packed missions, as well as some interesting reveals…

Get the chapter on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/onepagerules

Note that this expansion is still in early access, so the cover art and illustrations aren’t done yet, but we’ll be updating the book as soon as those are done!


Human War Chariot

Some players over on our Discord server were reminiscing about the good old Empire War Wagon from WHFB as well as its reappearance in Total War Warhammer, so we couldn’t help but add this epic warmachine to the game!

The Human army book has been updated with a War Chariot, a dedicated melee chariot that can be boosted with some impressive ranged firepower. It comes with a crew that has loads of attacks, plus can take a blunderbuss, a gatling rifle, and a sniper rifle as well. Truly a sight to behold!


Collaboration with Punga Miniatures

This month our friends at Punga Miniatures were so kind to provide all of our Tier 2 patrons with an extra model as a free gift, with the swashbuckling Pi’Rats Captain.

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

Punga Miniatures is a team that provides awesome tabletop miniatures for wargames and RPG’s, with a focus on fantasy football miniatures. They have a Patreon where they release new models every month, and patrons also get a discount code to their MMF Store. If  this wasn’t enough, they also provide an awesome welcome pack full of fantasy heroes as well as a ton of textured bases.

We’re very happy to be doing a collaboration with them, so make sure to check them out, they have super high quality miniatures which fit right in to play Age of Fantasy or even our very own Deathball fantasy sports game!

Since we hit 1000 patrons all of our Tier 2 subscribers can now buy all of our models on MyMiniFactory with a 50% Discount Code found here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/34548348

Honestly we never thought we’d even hit this goal, so from now on our next goals are going to be 30-day special discount codes, and whenever we can other special stuff. :D

So, if we hit 1250 subscribers then we’ll provide a special 30-Day Discount Code of 70%.
