Cult of Vile Rattus Kickstarter

3D Print, Age of Fantasy, Collaboration, ThatEvilOne, Thingiverse

Hi everyone,

Today we’re super excited to share with you news of an awesome upcoming Kickstarter campaign, as well as some other small updates regarding new releases and our forum.


Cult of Vile Rattus Kickstarter

Over the past couple of months ThatEvilOne has provided OPR with some awesome ratmen miniatures, and if you thought the rat madness was over, then you were very very wrong!

ThatEvilOne is launching a Kickstarter campaign this Sunday (12th of July) at 12PM (PST), which will be filled with a ton of amazing sci-fi ratmen models for you to 3D print at home.

The campaign will feature 80+ infantry and vehicle models, and we hear that there’s a ton of stretch goals as well to provide you with even more rat goodness. ;)

As a thank you for collaborating with us we’ve created a dedicated Vile Rattus Cult army list for Grimdark Future and Grimdark Future: Firefight, and on top of that anyone that backs the Kickstarter will also get a free copy of the Full Rulebooks for both games as well.

Make sure to sign up to be notified when it launches by clicking here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thatevilone/cult-of-vile-rattus-a-cheese-stealer-cult

This is going to be an amazing Kickstarter campaign, and we can’t wait to see everything that ThatEvilOne has in store for the backers, but in the meantime enjoy the previews below. :D


Biker Fanatics Released

In other 3D print related news, this week we released our second set of bikers this month, this time with the fanatic sisters and their deadly heavy chainsaw swords.

Download the models here:  https://www.patreon.com/posts/34548348 

Note that you must be a Tier 3 patron to access to the link above.

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


Free Dwarf Rifleman Released

Finally for our last 3D print news this week, we’ve released a free Dwarf Rifleman model on our Thingiverse page, so that you can do a test print before getting the full pack on CGTrader.

Grab the model here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4526981

If you’d like to help us make sure to follow us on Thingiverse and give the model a like, thanks!


Age of Fantasy Full Rulebook on WargameVault

As we announced last week we’re now providing our Full Rulebooks for sale on WargameVault for those that don’t have access to Patreon. It’s still much cheaper to get the model via Patreon, but if you really have no other option, then at least now you have a way to get the Age of Fantasy rulebook. :)

Get the rulebook by clicking HERE.


Upcoming Forum Changes

Around 3 months ago we switched our forum hosting from Proboards to Discourse, because on Proboards we had to manually provide patrons with additional forum access, which was becoming impossible as the number of supporters increased. Discourse being the only forum with a Patreon integration seemed like a dream, as it would allow us to automate the whole process, so we made the switch.

Looking at how things turned out, it’s clear to us that switching to Discourse was a mistake.

Whilst it’s true that it allowed for some automation, it also came with a number of other problems (from a bad interface to not sending out confirmation e-mails), which have lead to a decrease in forum members and forum usage. We tried getting some help from the Discourse developers, but they demand $100/month to give us support, and honestly we believe that money is better spent elsewhere (like art, miniatures, etc.).

So, what does this all mean?

Basically, we’re going to be shutting down the current Discourse forum at the end of the month, and switch back to Proboards. This means everyone’s old accounts, threads and posts will be restored, and hopefully we can go back to having a healthy forum again.

Switching back to Proboards means that we won’t have the Patreon integration anymore, and so it means that we will not have a patrons-only forum section anymore. Seeing how we haven’t had an active thread on there in a month, we hope this won’t be too big of a loss, and any patrons-only content can still be shared via our Discord server.

That’s it, we hope this helps shed some light on why we’re doing this. :)


That’s it for today, make sure to set a reminder for the Cult of Vile Rattus Kickstarter campaign. :D

Happy Wargaming!

Thingiverse, New Units + Updates

3D Print, Collaboration, Game Update, Ilhadiel, Thingiverse

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got some cool announcements regarding 3D models, a couple of new units for Grimdark Future, as well as some smaller general updates.


Free 3D Models on Thingiverse

After much deliberation we’ve finally settled on Thingiverse as our go-to platform to provide everyone with free samples of our models, and you can find our page here: https://www.thingiverse.com/onepagerules/about

This is something that we’ve been mulling over for a while, because we want to provide free models so that people can do test prints before buying, but don’t want it to hurt our sales.

What we’ve come up with is a simple solution: every couple of weeks we’ll be releasing a single model from one of our unit sets, which should give you a nice preview of what you can get with the full set.

The first model we’re releasing is from the Battle Sisters Troops set, and you can find the free model by following this link: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4441573

If you want to help out please make sure to follow the page and give the model a like, and we’ll be posting more news soon on the next free models you can get! :D


Beastmen Shaman by Ilhadiel

Continuing our collaboration with Ilhadiel, this month he made an awesome looking Beastmen Shaman for us, so make sure to check out the Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/ilhadiel

“Beastmen Shamans are attuned with nature and master spell casting with ease. They use this power to channel wild fury into their allies and to inspire animals to join them in battle.”

Download the model here:  https://www.patreon.com/posts/34548348 

Note that you must be a Tier 3 patron to access to the link above.

This model is going to be available exclusively on Patreon until the 29th of June, after which it will go up for sale on our CGTrader store at a higher price.


New Grimdark Future Units

On the game side of things we’ve got some new units for the Machine Cult as well as the Battle Sisters, just because those armies can’t ever get awesome enough. :D

Machine Cult

  • Added new units: Raider Cavalry, Sky Stalkers, Arch Gunship
  • Heroes have 2 new ranged weapon upgrades

Battle Sisters

  • Added new unit: Fanatic Bikers
  • Fanatic Sisters lost the Fast rule but gained Defense 5+

Small Updates

Finally we’ve got two small updates, one for AoF: Regiments and one for heroes with ambushing special rules in multiple GF: Firefight and AoF:Skirmish armies.

AoF: Regiments

  • Added a note in the Basic/Full Rulebooks on how to determine which facing to charge

GF: Firefight & AoF: Skirmish

  • Updated all army special rules that give half the units Ambush to require them to deploy near each other

That’s it for today, please make sure to check out our Thingiverse page and give us a like, and we’ll make sure to keep bringing you awesome free models. :)

Happy Wargaming!

New Rulebook Released

3D Print, Age of Fantasy, Collaboration, Full Rulebooks, Game Update, Ilhadiel, Regiments

Hi everyone,

In today’s update we have a new rulebook, some important changes, and a new 3D model collaboration, but let’s not waste too much time and get right into it.


Age of Fantasy: Regiments

Today we’re very excited to release the Full Rulebook for Age of Fantasy: Regiments!

This has been a LONG time coming, but now we finally have Full Rulebooks available for all of our games, as well as Beginner’s Guides to get people started. We’ve also updated some other important stuff as part of this release, so make sure to keep reading to find out what has changed. :)

Before we get into the contents we’d like to present you the new cover art for the game, another gorgeous piece by the mighty Brandon Gillam.

This new rulebook starts out with a thorough explanation of all the core rules of the game, with lots of diagrams and examples to make things as clear as possible.

We’ve found that new players that never played rank & file games before were struggling with some of the basic concepts of the game, and with this section it should be much easier for them to get into the game.

It’s only after that however that you get to the real meat of the rulebook!

The advanced rules section contains a ton of new ways for you to customize your game, such as new deployment zone types, new mission objectives, new actions, and a lot more.

These rules are modular so that you can mix and match however you like, allowing you to create tailor-made slaughter so you and your friends to revel in.

Then there is the total conversions section, which alter the core rules in such a way to provide you with completely new game mechanics, each with their own tactical challenges and strategies.

There are total conversions for things such as fog of war, fatigue and command points, each adding a new layer of the game, allowing you to experience the game like you never have before.

The newest addition to the game are Phased Battles, which change the way that alternating activations work, giving you more structure regimental battles, and allowing you to play massive game with ease.

Here is a full list of all the advanced rules and total conversions:

  • Terrain Placement Rules
  • Multiple Deployment Styles
  • Extra Missions
  • Side-Missions
  • Extra Actions
  • Solid Buildings
  • Random Events
  • Battlefield Conditions
  • Terrain & Objective Effects
  • Fog of War Rules
  • Brutal Damage Rules
  • Command Points Rules
  • Fatigue Rules
  • Rules for Phased Battles
  • Rules for Multiplayer Games
  • Rules for Small-Scales & Multi-Basing

Oh, and did we mention that you can use the small-scales and multi-basing rules to play with your old Warmaster models, or to use your unit trays from Kings of War? :D

I think enough has been said, go get the rulebook by clicking HERE.

Note that when getting the rulebook for the low price of just $3 you’ll also get access to the other Patreon rewards, so that’s an additional 4 rulebooks for our other games, as well as this month’s 2D paper models.


Game Updates

As we mentioned earlier there’s some important updates that are coming along with this release, and whilst none of them are major, they’re all serving as small contributions in improving our games.

Starting off with our Age of Fantasy games, we’ve re-worked the way Command Groups work, and now you can buy individual Sergeants, Musicians and Battle Standards for your units, including in AoF: Skirmish.

Then for AoF: Regiments we’ve made a small update in the core rules, allowing Wavering units to do a single 90° pivot when they’re activated, but otherwise remaining idle. This should give units a small chance to fight back and recover, instead of keeping them stuck in a loop of Wavering results.

Speaking more generally we’ve also gone ahead and updated all of the army lists for GFF and AoFS, consolidating upgrade lists to remove awkward situations with multiple instances of the same upgrade for units.

Finally the biggest change comes to the way spell casting works, and this is both for the Grimdark Future games as well as the Age of Fantasy games. This update comes in two parts: line of sight changes and spell lists changes.

In the newest release of the game casting and blocking spells now requires line of sight. This not only feels more natural on the tabletop, but should also stop spell casters from hiding safely behind a mountain all game whilst wreaking havoc on enemy forces.

Then we’ve also gone back and re-worked all spell lists for all armies, lowering the power of attack spells as well as re-balancing them to make them a little more useful for each individual army. With this newest release you can’t spend the whole match just spamming attack spells, incentivising players to use effect spells more.

With all of these changes we’ve updated pretty much every single army in the game, so whatever files you have are now outdated, and you should make sure to get the latest release. :)


New 3D Print Collaboration with Ilhadiel

This month we’re starting a collaboration with Ilhadiel, who makes awesome 3D print models for fantasy on his Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/ilhadiel

He has tons of fantasy models available, but what caught our eyes the most is his line of Foxmen, which are perfect to use as Beastmen in Age of Fantasy. To help him spread the word about his miniatures we’re going to be releasing 3 of his models in the coming months, starting with a Beastmen Champion!

Beastmen Champions are unstoppable forces of destruction on the battlefield, slaughtering their enemies with wild strength. This model comes with a massive broadsword that can chop through even the toughest foes.

Download the model here:  https://www.patreon.com/posts/34548348

Note that you must be a Tier 3 patron to access to the link above.

This model is going to be available exclusively on Patreon until the 30th of May, after which it will go up for sale on our CGTrader store at a higher price.

That’s it for today! With the release of AoFR we’ve finished releasing full rulebooks for our main line of games for now, so what might be coming next? Who knows…

Happy Wargaming!

Hi everyone,

In today’s update we have a great opportunity for those of you that like to write epic stories, a new collaboration for 3D print models, a cool Grimdark Future battle report and finally an update for the forum!


Open Call for Writers

One of the questions we asked during our last Community Survey was if people would be interested in narrative campaigns for our games, which was answered with a very decisive YES from the fans.

Well, if we want to make narrative campaigns, then we’re going to need someone to write all of the cool stories that go into that, recounting heroic deeds and epic battles to the last man.

As you can tell from the little background story blurbs at the beginning of the army lists, we’re not really the best at writing this kind of stuff…

In order to help us get some actual quality stories out there we’re currently looking for writers that would like to work with us, and anyone can apply.

To apply simply send an e-mail with a 150-300 words story set in the Grimdark Future or Age of Fantasy universes to: onepageanon@gmail.com

Make sure to put OPR WRITER at the beginning of the e-mail’s title so that our filter can pick it up, and we’re going to accept applications until the 26th of February.

Anything goes really, so you can send us short stories, battle descriptions, army backgrounds, or whatever else you think can best show off your writing skills.

If you are selected we will contact you for future projects, and here is the deal we are going to offer you for any collaboration:

  • We are going to pay for any content that is going to be distributed commercially, such as Patreon-exclusive content or paid Rulebooks.
  • Any content that is going to be distributed for free is on a voluntary basis, such as community campaigns or similar open content.

This is the first time we’re organizing something like this so things could always change as we move along, but anything we do will always be communicated very clearly.

That’s it, go ahead and send your stories now, we’re looking forward to reading them!

New Collaboration

Today we’re also really happy to announce that we’ll be collaborating with Kyoushuneko Miniatures to release 3D print fantasy miniatures for Age of Fantasy!

They make really stunning looking fantasy miniatures, which are released via their own Patreon, and they’ve agreed to collaborate with us to provide miniatures specifically designed for our games.

Check out the Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/Kyoushuneko_Miniatures

The way this is going to work is that they provide us with special miniatures, which are going to be exclusive to our patrons in early access for one month, and after that will be made available for free on CGTrader.

So yeah, more models for you every month, sounds pretty great. :D

Grimdark Future Battle Report

The fine folks at Atelier d’un Wargamer have posted up a new Grimdark Future battle report, with a 1450pts slaughter of Prime Brothers vs TAO Coalition.

This battle report is in French, but you can use the auto-translate feature on YouTube to get a semi-reliable translation… and also it’s always fun to just watch things die!


Fan-Made Content Section on the Forum

Finally we wanted to let you all know that we have a new section on the official forum for Fan-Made Content: https://onepagerules.proboards.com/board/39/fan-content

Here you will find cool new takes on our existing games, or even total conversions of the one-offs, such as the bombastic WarMechs conversion of WarFleets.

Make sure to check it out and post your own crazy ideas. :)

Grimdark-Titans


That’s it for today. We’re looking forward to reading all of your story submissions, and we’re going to be releasing some more awesome content next week so get ready!

Happy Wargaming!

New 3D Print Hero, Community Campaigns and Community Contributions

3D Print, Collaboration, The Makers Cult

Hi everyone,

Today’s update isn’t going to be very big, I’ve been focussing a lot on updating the Wave 1 armies, but we still got some really awesome stuff for you!

New 3D Print Battle Brothers Hero

The guys over at The Makers Cult are just really really awesome, I don’t know what more to say. :D

Without even asking them for it they’ve gone ahead and created another version of the official OPR Battle Brothers Hero, this time giving him an Energy Hammer and a Combat Shield.

featured_preview_1

It’s like with every new miniature they make for us things just keep getting more awesome, and we can’t wait to see what else they’ve got to offer in the future.

Get the miniature here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3897618

Check out The Makers Cult here: https://www.patreon.com/themakerscult

We’ve also added a new section on the homepage to highlight all of the cool 3D print stuff we have going, so make sure to check it out: https://onepagerules.com/3d-print/

Community Campaigns

As we mentioned in a previous post we’ve been running a GFF campaign over on the official forum, and since that campaign is about to come to an end we’d like to set some new ones up.

We’ve learned a lot since the original inception of the “Prophecy of the Page” campaign, and now we’re ready to reveal a new campaign format.

In order to give everyone a chance to play at their own pace, we’re going to have a “permanent” campaign format, where people can hop in and out of campaigns as they please, whilst keeping everything balanced.

The way this works is simple: Divide the number of matches you won by the number of matches you played and multiply by 100 (round up the result). This is your final Campaign Score. Warbands must play at least 5 matches in order to be put on the Campaign Score Board.

Example: If you won 5 matches and played 8, then your Campaign Score would be 63.

Pretty simple, you see?

Anyway, to get everyone going we’ve set up a couple of threads on the forum for different campaigns, so you should definitely check these out:

GFF Gang Wars Campaignhttp://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/9164/thread

AoFS Community Campaignhttp://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/9166/thread

If you don’t have anyone that is up for playing a campaign with you don’t worry, you can always join us on Discord and play online over Roll20.

Community Contributions

Lately there have been a ton of awesome contributions made by the community and we’d like to point out just a few of them which we think deserve some attention. We’re really happy about the OPR community and couldn’t wish for more, all of you are awesome!

BattleScribe 2.0http://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/8458/thread

We know we’ve mentioned this before but we simply have to do it again because of how great of a resource this is for all players. There’s a thread on the forum where people create BattleScribe files that allow you to put together army lists quickly and hassle-free, and you should definitely check it out.

Expanding the Lorehttp://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/8419/thread

Whenever we create a new army we try to keep the background story as open as possible, giving players a chance to create their own stories… and a lot of people are doing that. There’s a thread on the forum where lots of players have been sharing their own visions of the lore, with lots of cool stories.

Ancient Derelictshttp://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/9007/thread

Have you ever wanted to explore an abandoned spaceship that’s infested by Soul-Snatchers? Well the head on over to the forum where there is a fan made expansion for GFF that allows you do just that. Explore the ship, gather loot, upgrade your Destroyers and destroy the Soul-Snatcher nest to win.

Full French Translationhttp://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/8985/thread

Whilst most people usually just translate the core rules for our games, Squale has gone the extra mile and has translated most of the army lists for Grimdark Future into French too. We know it’s an enormous effort to do that with the hundreds of units that are in the game, bravo.

Hobby Progresshttp://onepagerules.proboards.com/thread/1198/hobby-progress-thread

Last but not least we wanted to let you know about the hobby progress thread, where players have been sharing a ton of pictures of their awesome looking miniatures and conversions. Here you’ll find all sorts of cool stuff, including 3D printed miniatures, paper miniatures and even scratch-built miniatures.

If you had an idea for someting that you think is really cool don’t be afraid to share it, we’re all very happy with all of the awesome stuff that everyone has been contributing.

Grimdark-Aliens

That’s it for today, like I said just a short update. Next week we’re going to be finally expanding on what exactly is coming up in the new balance changes, make sure not to miss out on the new post!

Happy Wargaming!

Gangs of Hive City + Battle Brothers Miniatures

3D Print, Collaboration, Firefight, Grimdark Future, Play Tokens, The Makers Cult

Hi everyone,

Last week we brought you new warbands for AoF: Skirmish so as promised today we bring you new warbands for GF: Firefight. Additionally we also wanted to highlight some new 3D print stuff that is now available… all in all a lot of cool new stuff!

Gangs of Hive City

The Gangs of Hive City are various factions of violent and deranged outlaws that wage eternal gang wars on the streets of hive city. Each gang has its own rich history and traditions, and they are not afraid to shed a lot of blood to gain even just an inch of new territory.

With this set of 7 new warbands you’ll be able to create highly customizable gangs to take on your foes. These warbands were made specifically with campaign games in mind, offering a ton of customization in terms of weapons and upgrades so that you can create crazy gunslinging combos.

The warbands are already available in the GF: Firefight game page, so check them out!

Quickplay Armies

Quickplay Armies are pre-made army lists designed to be ready to play out of the box, without the need to count point costs or create your own lists. They are the perfect thing to dip your toes into new armies and see if you like them!

Ever wanted to play a gang wars campaign game but didn’t know where to start? Well then, in order to make it easier for you we’ve created a new set of Quickplay Armies specifically designed as starting gangs for campaign games, so give them a try.

This week’s Quickplay Armies: The Brutes vs The Femmes

The Brutes

  • 1x Brute Leader w/ Flamethrower Pistol & Energy Hammer
  • 1x Brute Ganger w/ Rivet Shooter
  • 1x Brute Ganger w/ Shot-Cannon
  • 1x Brute Ganger w/ Heavy Wrench & CCW
  • 3x Brute Rookies w/ 1x Great Weapon & 1x Heavy Wrench

The Femmes

  • 1x Femme Leader w/ Assault Rifle, Needle Rifle Attachment & Shock Whip
  • 1x Femme Ganger w/ 2x Pistols
  • 1x Femme Ganger w/ Assault Rifle
  • 2x Femme Ganger
  • 3x Femme Rookies w/ 1x Plasma Pistol

The Brutes in this set focus on close ranged attacks with heavy melee options, making them formidable close combat opponents. The list comes with a Brute Leader with a Flamethrower Pistol to BBQ enemies up-close, as well as with a brutal Energy Hammer that crushes even the most powerful foes (though let’s be honest, nobody is more powerful than him).

The Femmes on the other side focus on high speed and a mix of melee and ranged attacks, giving them an edge in capturing objectives whilst steal landing hits from afar. The list come with a Femme Leader with an Assault Rifle plus Needle Rifle Attachment for long range support, as well as an electrifying Shock Whip to take out tougher foes up close.

Battle Brothers Miniatures

A month ago we made an update showing off the Battle Brothers Champion created for us by The Makers Cult, but what we didn’t show off is that there are some actual Battle Brothers miniatures out!

With this set of Battle Brothers you’ll be able to use a lot of new poses to customize your champion or create custom troops, which can come with Pistols & Swords or Assault Rifles.

Get the miniatures here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3807688

3D Play Tokens

If you like our Play Tokens but miss that 3D feel, Richard Mellow from Red Star Kits has put together a set of 3D Print Play Tokens based off the official OPR ones, and they’re looking pretty cool.

These tokens are perfect to ease your time when keeping track of things on the battlefied, and I’m pretty sure that with a little work and imagination you could paint them up to look abslutely stunning. :)

Get the tokens here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3852611

Travelling This Week

As a final update I wanted to let you know that I’ll be travelling for the rest of the week with limited access to the internet, so unfortunately if you support us on Patreon in the coming days I will only be abel to provide you with accesses next week.

Sorry for the inconvenience, I’ll get you all your stuff as soon as I can! :)

**********

Hope you enjoyed this update and are ready to blast each other up on the streets of hive city!

Happy Wargaming!
