New MyMiniFactory Store

We’re really excited to announce that we’ve opened our new store on MyMiniFactory, and our models are available for purchase there: https://www.myminifactory.com/users/onepagerules

From now on we’ll also be doing our file delivery via MyMiniFactory, here’s how it works:

Our 3D print files are delivered via MyMiniFactory; in order to have access to your monthly rewards you need to use the same e-mail address on Patreon and MyMiniFactory.

As soon as new models are released, you will receive an e-mail to redeem your files, which will then be permanently available in your MyMiniFactory library.

We update our e-mail list every week on Monday, so if you still haven’t received your files please be patient, they are either not ready for delivery yet (see below) or you will receive them as soon as our e-mail list is updated again.

That’s it, if you have any questions please let us know!


Pre-Supported Models Available

All of our September models and now available fully pre-supported on our brand new MyMiniFactory store: https://www.myminifactory.com/users/onepagerules

The files from in both standard STL, supported STL and supported LYS format, giving you plenty of options on how to print them. All of our supports have been fully tested to guarantee that they work well and don’t damage the models.


Collaboration with Asgard Rising

This month we’re doing a cross-promotion with Asgard Rising, providing you with their awesome Jarl Rurik model. Here’s a message from the team:

***************

What’s in the set:

Best regards from Asgard Rising team!

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.

October Painting Competition

Don’t forget that this month we’re running our very first painting competition!

  • OPR Community on Facebook

  • 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).

Happy Painting!

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!

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:


October Painting Competition

This month we’re going to be running our very first painting competition!

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

With the month coming to an end, it’s time we take a look at what’s coming in October, and once again it’s going to be a very content packed month. :D

On the games side, we’re going to be releasing the 4th chapter of Jakob’s Path, as well as Season 2 of the arena games and warband creators (Season 1 will be released in early October).

We also have 2 major game releases that are going to be revealed in October, but we don’t want to spoil the surprise yet. All we can say is that we have a new expansion for GFF in the works, and also a completely new game that is going to take us in a new direction…

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!

New September Models Revealed

After a small delay this week we’ve finally been able to reveal the missing models from the Alien Hives, and boy oh boy did they turn out great!

First up we’ve got the Prime Warrior, a massive hero that commands his army with a heavy hand. He’s armed with a deadly bio-gun, and has a spike on his head to show his prowess.

Then we’ve got the Shooter Grunts, that come in a pack of 3, with bio-guns coming straight out of their terrifying mouths, ready to liquify their enemies with acid bile.

With these models the full lineup of September releases has been revealed, so make sure to grab all of them (and much much more) for just $10 before the end of the month!

See the full list of what you get here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/41104102


Jakob’s Path: Chapters 1-3

This week we also released the 3rd chapter of the Jakob’s Path narrative campaign.

This chapter contains 2 new missions, and if you support now you get all previously released chapters as well. Whilst the campaign was written with Battle Brothers vs Orcs in mind, it can be played with any other factions and whatever models you have available.

Chapter 3 – Jakob and his men return from the jungle battered by the heavy fighting, with one of their brothers in critical condition. They hope to find a victorious Khari at the landing zone, but instead will find that they are not alone…

Get the chapter here: https://www.patreon.com/onepagerules 


OPR on Instagram

After much deliberation we’ve decided to create an Instagram profile for OPR, where we will share lots of pictures of our newly released content, as well as sneak previews in the stories.

In order to boost our reach we’re also considering doing some giveaways on Instagram, so make sure to follow us now to get more news about that when it happens!

Follow us here: https://www.instagram.com/onepagerules/


How to Play Age of Fantasy: Regiments

This week Stonehorse Gaming released a new video, explaining how to play Age of Fantasy: Regiments in a simple and concise manner (and with some great models to boot).

Check it out if you haven’t had a chance to play our games yet, and want to see them in action!


That’s it for today, a pretty quick update. We’re looking forward to reading your writing jam stories, and can’t wait to see what crazy ideas you come up with for the theme: INFINITE LOOP.

Happy Wargaming!

September Releases, Writing Jam, Quickstart Section and More

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

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got a bunch of new stuff for you, a writing jam, new grimdark models, new fantasy models, new spaceship models, a quickstart section, a game update, and even a new battle report for you to watch.

Let’s get to it!


OPR Writing Jam #1

Before we delve into all of the new goodies we got for you this month, let’s talk about the OPR Writing Jam, which is a brand new concept for us, and a bit of an experiment.

For the longest time people have been asking us for more narrative, and there are many of you in the community that have been more than happy to share your own stories and takes on the OPR universe. Since we got so many awesome and creative submissions from fans, we think that it’s a shame that only we get to read them.

So today we’re introducing the OPR Writing Jam!

The OPR writing jam is a 48hr story writing marathon, focused on writing one-page stories set in the OPR universe. We want to stress that this is about writing stories set in the OPR universe, and not to write stories based off another game’s universe and just change the names to fit within the OPR universe.

The writing jam runs from  September 11th, at 8PM UK time / 3PM ET time, to September 13th, at 8PM UK time / 3PM ET time. There will be a 1 week public voting period, and then we will highlight a couple of our favourites on our website. This is just for fun, so there are no prizes or winners.

The submission process is pretty simple. At the start of the jam we will announce a theme, and then you will have 48hrs to write a 500-1000 words story set in the OPR universe. The story must fit on a single sheet, and we will be providing templates for you to use.

Sign up for the jam here (it’s free): https://itch.io/jam/oprwj1

Here is an example submission to get a better idea: https://onepagerules.itch.io/sons-of-the-god-king-example

Starting the jam has been a very spontaneous decision, and we’re curious to see how it goes. If this is well received, then we could see ourselves having more writing jams in the future, or trying out different concepts. :)


New Alien Hives and Mummified Undead Models

This month we’ve got a ton of new 3D print models for you, so let’s start with our two new armies for Grimdark Future and Age of Fantasy.

The Alien Hives and Mummified Undead are going to be released over a period of 3 months, and each month we’ll be releasing 1 hero and 2 units for each army (~7 model each, for ~14 models total). At the end of the 3 months you can expect to have 3 heroes and 6 units for each army, and we’re also going to try and include some bigger models in there as well (monsters anyone?). This means that for just $30 you’re going to get 30+ models just in these 2 armies, plus all of the spaceship models, new games, expansions, and more!

These models are being created in collaboration with Punga Miniatures, and we’d like to thank the whole team for the amazing result: Rim, Bulat, Radmir and Guzel

The Alien Hives are being sculpted by Radmir: INSTAGRAM

The Mummified Undead are being sculpted by Bulat: INSTAGRAM

All of the renders are being done by Guzel: ARTSTATION

And of course the production is being done by Rim: WEBSITE

This is just the beginning of these two armies, and we’re looking forward to seeing more of them come out, and can’t wait to release the full armies after these 3 months. Of course by supporting us on Patreon you get a TON more content, so make sure to check out our September release overview: https://www.patreon.com/posts/41104102

Note that we are still pending on the renders for the Alien Hives hero and the second unit, and we’ll make sure to update everyone once those are released.


New Empire Fleet Models

You thought that was all for this month’s model releases? Think again!

This month we’re seeing the first FTL fleet being released, starting with the Empire Fleet. The FTL fleets are going to be released over a period of 6 months, and each month we’ll be releasing 4 models for each fleet (3 ship types +1 squadron). At the end of the 6 months you can expect to have all 24 models, plus the Full Rulebook for FTL, giving you the complete range of FTL fleets. That’s right, for just $10/month you’re not only getting all of the models for the other 2 armies, but also a new FTL fleet.

These models were made in collaboration with Danny Cyanide, who is going to make all FTL fleets for us. Check out his stuff here: https://cults3d.com/en/users/danny_cyanide

We’re really happy to be working with Danny, and can’t wait to see where else this collaboration could take us after FTL (maybe some nice mechs? who knows…).

New Empire Fleet (Again?)

So, you love the idea of spaceship battles, you want to give FTL a try, but you don’t have any models or a 3D printer? We’ve still got you covered!

Alongside our 3D print fleets we’re also going to release a 2D print fleet every month, giving everyone a chance to play FTL. This follows the exact same system as the 3D print fleets, so you get a new fleet with 4 models each month, and you will have all of them together at the end of the 6 months. The basic 1 color version is available for just $3/month, whilst the full 2 color version is available for just $5/month.

Read more about the release here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/41155422

And this is not all for you 2D print fans, because this month we’ll also have a new 2D print army for Grimdark Future coming out, which will be the Infected Colonies. But more on that later when they’re ready to be released…


New Quickstart Section

As some of you might have already noticed, we have re-designed our landing page, adding a couple of new features to make life easier. We now have a button for the news section (because some people didn’t realize we had one), as well as a button that leads straight to our monthly Patreon release highlight.

Most importantly though, we’ve added a button that leads to a new “start here” page.

This page serves to introduce new players to everything they need to know about OPR, from the fact that our games are free, to how the project is supported on patreon, to a step by step guide on getting started.

The step-by-step guide was designed to give the easiest introduction possible to our games, with just the one-page rules first, and then a series of brand new quickstart sets, which include the beginner’s guide, some pre-made army lists, as well as 2D miniature tokens and terrain. This is the absolute best way to introduce someone that’s new to wargaming to our games, and is the perfect package to run demo games or share the rules with new starters.

Then there’s even more stuff on the page. We’ve added a battle report by Wyloch’s Armory for those that would like to see the game in action, as well as links to all of our social media, community pages and the newsletter.

All in all we think that it turned out pretty great, although we might keep tweaking it as things go along. Big shout out to Perram on Discord who pushed me to actually implement this, thanks a lot!

Check it out here: https://onepagerules.com/start-here/


Orc Marauders Update

The Orc Marauders have always been a very “controversial” faction in Grimdark Future. They’re one of the most played factions out there, but also one of the hardest to play right. In the hands of the right player, and with the right conditions, they can be absolutely brutal, however for a lot of players they just end up being frustrating because they are much harder to play than they look.

After a lot of discussion we’re decided to take a couple of small steps to address this issue, and hopefully give players the tools that they need to feel that they can be more competitive when playing Orc Marauders. This is not a complete overhaul of the army, but instead just a couple of tweaks to tip the scales.

Here’s the full changes:

  • Mechanics and Shamans now have access to upgrade list B
  • Fixed cost of Ultra Armor on list C
  • Heroes can now take Jetpacks
  • Added new special rule SHOOT!
  • Lowered cost of WAR! and Mad Doctor
  • Specialist Orcs and Orc Pirates now have Relentless
  • Modified weapons and upgrades for Specialist Orcs and Orc Pirates
  • Mini Helicopters now have Impact(3) as an upgrade
  • Most Vehicles can be upgraded with Relentless
  • Condensed multiple buggy types into a Combat Kart

We hope that these small changes allow players to play with the army in new and interesting ways, and hopefully be able to mitigate some of the army’s weaknesses, whilst still maintaining that core Orc Marauders identity.


Age of Fantasy Battle Report and Review (German)

Finally this week we were very delighted when we found out that German channel Bier und Brezel Tabletop filmed a full battle report and provided an in-depth review of Age of Fantasy.

The battle report is very well filmed, and there is great commentary that explains everything that’s happening in detail, so this also serves as a great “how to play” video as well. The review section is also really great, going over the pros and cons of the system, and it’s great to see someone that truly understands the strengths of the system make a review for it.

For those of you that don’t speak German you can watch the video with YouTube’s auto-translated captions, although we can’t vouch for the quality of the translation. :D


That’s it for this week, make sure to sign up for the OPR Writing Jam!

Happy Wargaming!

Games, Models, Previews and More!

2D Print, 3D Print

Hi everyone,

Saying that we’ve got a ton of new stuff to show you today is an understatement, so we hope you’re strapped in for yet another big post.

We’ve got new games, new 2D models, new 3D tokens & rulers, as well as a preview of the amazing September releases, plus some other stuff.

Let’s get to it!


GF: Arena & AoF: Arena – Season 1

Starting off with a bang we’ve got 2 new games available in early access on Patreon right now, which were widely requested by you in our last Community Survey.

GF: Arena & AoF: Arena are hex-based arena games that are 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 a basic rulebook that explains everything in detail with lots of really helpful diagrams and examples.

Right now Season 1 is only available on Patreon, and we’re planning on a public release toward the end of September. The games will be available for free with black & white components, whilst full color versions will be sold on WargameVault.

Once the game has gone public, Season 2 will be made available exclusively on Patreon until the 3rd season is released. The plan is to get the first 2 seasons out by the end of the year so that there’s plenty of content for everyone to play with, but after that each new season will only 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 it and share their own crazy combos!

Get both games (and much more) for just $5 by supporting us on Patreon.


Warfleets: FTL

It seems like it was just yesterday that we announced FTL, but here we are 2 months into development already!

Over the past few weeks we’ve had all of our artists put together a bunch of assets for the game, and now that we’re seeing it all come together the game is really starting to look quite amazing. It’s always great seeing a game start out from just a few notes and then develop into a full product.

Anyway, as we already mentioned last week, we took a break from FTL to work on the arena games (which came out pretty great if I can say so myself), and have now delved back into the development of FTL. There are still some things that need to be ironed out of course, but the game is evolving in a good direction, so we’re quite happy about it.

If you want to get your hands on the game right now you can support us on Patreon, but in the meantime here is a first look at the cover art for the game.


Kingdom of Angels Army Pack

Alright, enough about games, now let’s get to some models!

First up we’ve got some amazing new Kingdom of Angels models for 2D printing, which come in two variations, one inspired by ancient mesopotamia whilst the other is inspired by more nordic tribes.

To help you get started right away with these models, here is ~500pts quickplay army you can use to crush your opponents:

  • 1x Angel Tyrant
  • 10x Swordsmen
  • 5x Crossbowmen
  • 5x Panther Riders

These models are going to be available exclusively on Patreon until the 30th of August, after which they will go up for sale on our WargameVault Store at a higher price.


3D Play Tokens & Ruler

This release is something we’ve been looking forward to for a while, and now OPR has an official set of 3D play tokens, as well as an OPR branded ruler.

Here the details of everything in the set:

  • OPR Ruler (8″ x 6″ x 3″ x 1″)
  • Activation Tokens
  • Pinned tokens
  • Wound Tokens (1 Wound & 3 Wounds) 
  • Fatigue Tokens
  • Spell Tokens
  • Suppression Tokens
  • Alert Tokens
  • Objective Tokens (Numbered 1-6)

The full pack is available for our Tier 3 supporters on Patreon right now, and is going to keep being available indefinitely as a sort of welcome gift for our new patrons.


Upcoming Releases

September is going to be crazy.

Next month is going to be our biggest month in terms of releases yet, and we are going to offer the biggest value deal that was probably ever made for wargaming.

Here is the insane amount of things that are going to be available for our supporters:

  • 3D Print Mummified Undead Army (7 models)

Oh, and of course you also get access to our patrons-only Discord channels and our weekly patrons-only updates.

Additionally there’s also going to be some updates coming to our website, some new patches for our core games, and we’re going to make the full Battle Sisters and Dwarves armies available on CGTrader.

This is an insane deal and we hope you can help us reach more players by spreading the word about it!

Here’s just a couple of preview shots to get you excited:


Monthly Release Deadline – August 30th

One last word on Patreon stuff, if you want to get your hands on everything that we released in August, then make sure to join now get it before the 30th of August, when it will be removed!


Full Rulebook Video Overview

If you’ve been on the fence about our full rulebooks and wanted a quick look of the sort of content that you’ll find in them, then make sure to check out Stonehorse Gaming’s video overview:


Grimdark Future in Portuguese

Finally here’s some good news for our Portuguese speaking players, as Schaten from the forum has released a translation of the basic rulebook for Grimdark Future.

Check it out here: https://forum.onepagerules.com/thread/1709/grimdark-future-portuguese-br-ptbr


That’s it for today, we hope you enjoyed all of the previews, and we’ll be back next week to start off the release of all the madness that is coming at you in September!

Happy Wargaming!

New Arena Games

Over the past week we’ve taken a small break from the development of FTL in order to flesh out an idea we had for hex-based arena fighting games, and now the first beta versions are being released on Patreon.

The games will be Age of Fantasy: Arena and Grimdark Future: Arena, which are fast paced combat games designed with lots of customization in mind. In order to make sure anyone can enjoy the game, we’re going to make it in print-and-play format, providing 2D print models, hex boards, and anything else needed to play.

Everything about the game can be customized, from the models you take, to which upgrades you give them, to individual parts of your tactics board. The core game loop is to come up with a crazy combo, try it out in a quick match, then switch it up and perfect it until you’re actually able to pull off the perfect strategy. It’s very fun. :D

Right now we’re thinking of releasing the game in season, with each new season coming out every 6 months and offering 3 new warbands, new hex boards, as well as new common upgrade cards and tactics boards.

If you want to check out the games right now you can support us on Patreon, and get lots of other stuff too!

(we know it’s ugly, but you can expect something much better soon)

Rock Golems Released

Last but not least, this week we’ve released our last Dwarf army model by Kyoushuneko Miniatures, and we couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. This collaboration has been a dream come true, and you should definitely check out the Patreon for more amazing miniatures HERE.

Happy Wargaming!

Game Updates

Today’s updates aren’t very big, mostly some small army changes, and we’re adding a new rule for competitive play that limits you to a maximum of 2 targets when splitting fire in Grimdark Future and Age of Fantasy.

Here the army changes:

  • Interrogators now have Fear

Machine Cult Defilers

  • Added new unit: Dragonfly Gunship

New Collaboration + Releases

2D Print, 3D Print, Collaboration

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got an awesome new collaboration, some updates on the Vile Rattus, a new free 3D print model, and the release of a starter set for Age of Fantasy.


Collaboration with Manuel Boria

This month we’ve got a special treat for you in terms of 3D models, as we’ve partnered up with the amazing Manuel Boria, who makes awesome models for wargames and RPGs. His models are available on Patreon, MyMiniFactory and Thingiverse, and they are an absolute treat! :D

If you’ve never heard of him and are interested in fantasy miniatures, then you should definitely check his stuff out. Not only does he make really epic heroes and warriors, but also really adorable monster cubs.

Make sure to check him out here: https://www.patreon.com/Manuel_Boria 

As part of this collaboration he has provided us with a stunning Gnoll Warrior, which you can grab now on Patreon by following this link: https://www.patreon.com/posts/gnoll-warrior-by-40117707

Note that this model is going to be available on the OPR Patreon until the 30th of August, after which it will only be available on Manuel Boria’s Patreon.

To give you an example of how easily his models can be used to play our games, here are some Quickplay Armies for AoF: Skirmish using Gnolls (Beastmen) vs Kobolds (Halflings).

Gnolls (Beastmen)

Kobolds (Halflings)

The models can of course be used for any other games, for example WarStuff, or even Deathball with just a few sports-related modifications. The sky is the limit with these amazing models! :D


Vile Rattus Cult

If you missed the Kickstarter Campaign for the Vile Rattus Cult fret not, because That EvilOne has now put up all of these rat-tastic models up for sale on CGTrader, which you can check out by clicking HERE.


Free Fanatic Sisters Model

This week we released yet another free model on Thingiverse, this time a battle-ready Fanatic Sister.

Get the model here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4561112

If you want to help us out please make sure to give the model a like, thanks! :)


Island of Doom – AoF Starter Set

Since the release of the Battle for Magellan-2 Starter Set players have been asking us to make similar starter sets for our other games, and this week we’re happy to release the Island of Doom starter set.

This starter set contains the core rules, 12 unit stat cards, two complete paper armies with 43 miniatures, 11 flat terrain pieces and a set of 106 play tokens, making for an awesome starter package.

If you’re interested you can get this starter set for just $4.99 by clicking HERE.

These starter sets don’t have multiple army colors or terrain seasons like you get on Patreon, so the best deal is still to subscribe there, but they should hopefully give more players a new way to find and try out our games. :)


That’s it for today, make sure to tune in next week for some game updates and more releases.

Happy Wargaming!
