I QUIT (my other job)

2D Print, 3D Print, Collaboration, Game Update, Physical Minis, 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

Game Updates, Etsy Store, Painting Videos + More

3D Print, Game Update, Physical Minis, 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!

OPR Writing Jam #2 – STARTS NOW!

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!

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!

Patreon News

With the start of a new month we’ve posted a new release overview for February, which you can check out by clicking here. This month there will be a ton of new awesome models, so keep your eyes peeled!

Today we’ve also revealed this month’s special gift model, which is in collaboration with Warploque Miniatures. Check out the full post with more info by clicking here.

Community Reminders

Finally, if you’re new to the project make sure to check out all of our community pages, where you can get together with hundreds of other players to chat, share, play, and more!

That’s it for today, make sure to sign up for the writing jam, and we’ll be back next week with more news on game updates progress and more.

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!

We also just released season 2 of both Grimdark Future: Arena and Age of Fantasy: Arena. You can find the free rules on the individual game pages, whilst the complete versions are available on WGV/DTRPG.

To celebrate the release of season 2, we’ve lowered the price of each individual season to $4.99, and we’ve also got season 1+2 bundles for each of them, all for only $7.99.

Gang Wars – The Femmes

This week we just released the first 2D gang with The Femmes, which comes with a handful of gangers and a mascot in two versions. For the next couple of months you can expect us to release more gangs, and we’ll probably end up covering them all.

The models are available on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/onepagerules

2D Print, 3D Print, New Release, Painting Contest, Podcast

Hi everyone,

Hope you’re having happy holidays and are able to spend some time with your loved ones. I’ll try to keep today’s update as brief as possible to not steal too much of your time, come watch me fail!

Let’s get to it…

Good luck to all participants!

Dungeons & Glory Available Now

A long long time ago, we had started working on a very early draft of a one-page RPG called Dungeons & Glory, which aimed at streamlining RPG mechanics into a super simple and beginner-friendly format.

Over the past few weeks I’ve been testing out a lot of different RPG systems with a few of my friends, and decided to pick up the old D&G again, and give it another shot. This has lead to a complete re-working of the core system, as well as the addition of a useful GM guide, which introduces lots of different things to play around with.

Right now we’re planning on keeping this system as a one-off game, but who knows, one day it may very well lead to the creation of the infamous OPRPG…

OnePageFools Podcast

The world of OPR seems to be ever-expanding, and now community members Jimbo and Lucas have put together a new podcast dedicated to all things OPR called OnePageFools!

Listen, like and follow here:

Jakob’s Path + Heroes

December is the last month in which our Grimdark Future narrative campaign Jakob’s Path is going to be available on Patreon, and as a special treat we have now released 2D models for all of the campaign’s heroes, which are fully compatible with our previously released Battle Brothers and Orc Marauders models!

Get the models here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/43388556

Saurians + AoF: Arena Season 2

With this week’s release of the Saurians 2D Army Pack, we’ve added the Saurians warband to AoF:A S02, and with this the season has been completed!

It’s really cool to see that now with each arena game having 6 hex boards, 6 warbands and 2 common assets, the game feels a lot more complete, and allows for a ton of match ups.

There’s also the warband creation rules, which allow you to use any and all miniatures you have as well, and we’re looking forward to seeing how people use the system to add all sorts of crazy warbands!

Get the rules and models here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/43388556

Note that the warbands are designed to be compatible with WHU miniatures, and with an upcoming lizard warband we’ll make sure to update the Saurian’s warband composition rules to make them compatible if needed.

Finally, I usually don’t do this, but I feel like I need to address you all directly.

This year has been a very rough one for everyone. Many of us have been going through a lot of hard stuff that frankly nobody deserved. We’ve seen family and friends die, become gravely ill, lose their jobs, their house, their mental heath, their dreams, their future, and many fates worse than that.

I know that I’m just some random guy on the internet, and that I can’t change any of the things that happened, but I hope that this project has helped at least some of you see some light in the dark. I’ve been steering this ship by myself for many years now, but this year has been something else, and I’ve pushed myself as hard as I could to bring you all as much gaming content as possible to hopefully keep you distracted for at least a moment.

Gaming has always been a means for me to get together with family and friends to have a laugh, and I think there’s nothing that we need more than the people we love near us in these times of isolation. If you or someone you know could use some time off this pandemic, and you think that gaming could help them, then please share this project with them. All of the games are free, there are free models, and we have a lovely community that can help you get set up for playing online if needed.

I have been incredibly fortunate to be able to turn my dreams into a reality, but I know that there are many people out there that haven’t been as lucky as me. I’ve spent many years of my life going through a lot of difficult things, and I know what it feels like to be looking up from rock bottom and see no hope. I feel a huge responsibility towards everyone that has supported the project to make the most out of it and provide everyone with as much value as I possibly can. I hope that in this I have succeeded.

From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank everyone that has believed in the project, and I hope that I can keep putting a smile on your face for many more years to come.

With all my love,

Darkness Within, Survey Results, Gangs Updates

2D Print, 3D Print, Collaboration, Community Survey, Painting Contest

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got a bunch of cool stuff for you, with a teaser for Darkness Whitin, results for last week’s Community Survey, a ton of new Gang Units, plus some news for 3D Printing as well as a brand new 2D Print Collaboration.

Let’s get to it!

Darkness Within

December saw the completion of the Jakob’s Path narrative campaign for Grimdark Future, so starting in January we’ve got a brand new Age of Fantasy narrative campaign coming at you called Darkness Within.

Find out more by clicking here…

Community Survey Results

Every 6 months we’re happy to make a community survey, where players get the chance to tell us what they want to see in the future, share which armies they play, and provide any feedback they have.

Usually we also have some extra questions about other stuff, but this time we decided to keep the survey lean and simple, focusing on the things that matter to us the most.

Let’s see what results we got. :D

Which of these settings would you be interested in for new full games?

Alright, this is the big one, as it guides the development of our next games, and it seems that we got pretty much the same results as in our last survey, except that this time “Customizable Skirmish” has also shot it’s way to the top, and we’ve got a lot of votes for a One-Page RPG as well, which is not the norm.

Here’s the top 5 highlighted:

  • Small-Scale Sci-Fi – 37.5%
  • Mech Combat – 35.6%
  • Customizable Skirmish – 32.9%
  • Cyberpunk – 28.8%
  • One-Page RPG – 21.9%

Let’s break down what we’ve been planning for the future, since it’s going to be pretty much in line with the survey results:

  • Very soon we’ll have a One-Page RPG system coming as a one-off game, to test the waters and see how people like our approach to the genre. If we see that it gets a good response, then we might expand that into a full game in the future.
  • Then we’ve got a new Skirmish Adventure Game that we’ve been trying to develop over the past couple of months, which will also scratch a bit of that RPG itch, but most importantly it will be in line with the results from the last survey.
  • For Mech Combat, right now we’re working on revising the FTL rules, and once that is done and we’ve got the full game released, we’ll be working on a Mech Combat game that uses a modified version of the same engine.
  • For Small-Scale Sci-Fi, that’s something that we’ve been thinking about for a very long time, and we’re probably going to build a system that uses a similar model as FTL, where you have a core set of units types and customization options, plus 5-6 factions that can be further customized (instead of 20+ army books).
  • For Cyberpunk, we’ve currently got the Double Tap rules as a one-off, and would be very happy to expand those into a full game, so that’s definitely coming some day. Honestly with the development speed we have we’re not sure if it’ll be possible in 2021, but we’ll try.
  • Finally, for Customizable Skirmish, we’ve had some ideas on how we could expand on WarStuff to make it a little more fun and customizable, whilst also adding some new ways to play, and we’re planning on working on that as a side-project since it doesn’t take up as much time as developing other games.

That’s it on the games side, now onto the next two questions:

Which Grimdark Future armies do you play?

On the Grimdark Future side things are pretty stable as usual, with lots of Battle Brothers players dominating the landscape. It’s really cool to see that we’ve got some people that are playing the armies we’ve done in collaboration with TMC and TEO, and we’re hoping to do more in the future!

Which Age of Fantasy armies do you play?

With Age of Fantasy we also have more or less similar results as in the last survey, with a much more balanced distribution of armies played. It’s also cool to see that some people are playing the just recently released Giant Tribes, which are definitely a niche army.

Do you have any suggestions for things we should do with OPR (new games, armies, features, etc.)?

Finally, the open question is always a delight, since we get such a diverse range of feedback, questions, suggestions, and more. There’s also always a bunch of you who use this opportunity to thank us for making the games, which is very heart warming, and actually I have to thank you for making this possible. This project truly couldn’t exist without it’s fans, and I’m happy that we have such a nice community! :D

Now onto some of the feedback, I’ll try to keep it brief:

  • Some people have asked us if your focus will shift from games to miniatures, and the answer is a very decisive no. The miniatures are a great way for us to further establish our own settings, to provide fans with something cool, and to provide funding for the project, but that’s it. Whilst we definitely want to keep expanding and improving our miniatures, we have no intention to stop focusing on the games. We provide regular updates to all of our games, and currently have 3 games in early access, with more coming in the future, so we’ve actually ramped up our game development as well. So don’t worry about the games, lots of stuff is coming your way!
  • Lots of people commented that they’d like to see more stuff like Gang Wars but for the other games, like a Mordheim-style game, or Crusade-style rules. That’s definitely something that we’re planning on doing, so it’s just a matter of time before it’s released.
  • There’s also lots of people that have suggested we do map-based campaigns, and that’s also something that we’ve already been planning on doing, so it’s just a matter of time before we get to it.
  • Some people have asked us to provide solo-rules for our games, but actually we already have solo-rules for all of our 5 mainline games. This probably means that the information is not displayed well on the website, and we’ll have to take a look at how to make things more visible.
  • In addition to that, a lot of people have asked for a solo/coop skirmish dungeon exploration game, and as we mentioned above, we’ve got a Skirmish Adventure Game in the works which is exactly that.
  • There were some people who asked if it’s possible to play our games online, and it definitely is! We have an active community of players that use Roll20 and TTS, so make sure to join our Discord server to set up games.
  • Some people asked if we have plans to release 100% original OPR armies for 3D printing, and that’s also something we’ve been planning on doing. Right now we’re going to be doing 2 regular army releases followed by 1 original army release, so you can look forward to that.
  • Finally, a lot of people have said that they enjoy the little snippets of lore we provide, and that they’d like to see more. Well, fret not, as we’ve got a whole series of campaigns coming out which take place in our game universes, so there’s lots of lore coming you way.

I’d like to thank everyone who took part in the survey once more, and we’ll be back with another community survey in about 6 months when we can catch up again! :D

New Gang Units

With Gang Wars being currently available on Patreon, we’ve decided to go back and re-visit the Gangs of Hive City army list, adding 20 new units for the existing gangs, as well as adding a completely new mercenaries gang, which features units that can be taken by any gang to bolster their abilities.

  • The Cult – Mutant Shamblers, Bomb Rats

  • The Brutes – Combat Stimmers, Forge Natives, Berserkers, Pet Crocodiles

Collaboration with Chimeric Creations

This month we’ve got a new collaboration with Chimeric Creations, who make awesome 2D fantasy miniatures: https://rebrand.ly/ChimericCreationsDTRPG

Chimeric Creations was actually started by one of our community members Murmillo, who has been working toward creating fantasy miniatures that can be used to play miniature wargames and RPG’s. This set actually works perfectly to play a Dark Elf warband in AoF: Skirmish, or even build a small Dark Elf army for AoF!

Finally we’ve got some new previews for the models that are coming this month, which are looking great!

Happy Holidays!
