Faster than Light, New Models, Small Updates

2D Print, 3D Print, Competitive Rules, FTL, Game Update, ThatEvilOne, Thingiverse

Hi everyone,

Today we’re very excited to announce a new game, show off some of the models we released this week, share a couple of small game updates and give you a preview of what’s to come next month!


Faster than Light

The time has finally come to reveal our next game: Faster than Light (FTL)

FTL is a spaceship battles game inspired by the likes of Battlefleet Gothic, Star Wars Armada, Dropfleet Commander and our very own WarFleets. This will be a full game, so not just a one-off, with its own rulebook, armies, advanced rules, expansions, etc.

This will be a miniature agnostic game as usual, so you can use models new and old from any game like Battlefleet Gothic, Star Wars Aramada, Dropfleet Commander, Firestorm Armada, etc.

The game is available in early access right now, and will remain in early access until we feel that it’s ready for public release, with solid core rules and multiple factions to pick from. If you’d like to check out the game, help out playtesting it, and generally take part in the development, then join our Patreon.

We’re really excited to be working on a new game and can’t wait to reveal more details as we go. :D


Ratmen Champion Released

This week we’ve released the last model in our Ratmen collaboration with ThatEvilOne, and are very happy about how everything turned out. He makes really amazing models, and also has an upcoming Kickstarter for even more Ratmen stuff, which we’ll make sure to notify you about!

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

Ratmen Champions are cunning warriors ready to do anything for victory, even stab their allies in the back if that will help them win the 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.

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.

champion-render-1


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!

23 New Games + New 3D Models

3D Print, Age of Fantasy, Game Jam 2020, Game Update, Grimdark Future, Kyoushuneko Miniatures, Quickplay Armies

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got a TON of new one-page games for you to try, some awesome new 3D print models, an update for the Deep-Sea Elves and some new Quickplay Armies.


Play & Rate 23 New Games

Last weekend we ran the very first OPR Game Jam, which was a ton of fun and resulted in the creation of 23 awesome new games!

The theme for the jam was “Asymmetric Design”, which sparked a lot of cool and unexpected ideas, making for some truly unique games, so make sure to take a look at all of them (which should be pretty quick as they’re all one-page games).

jam games

Now that the jam is over we need everyone to check out the games and rate them, which is completely anonymous and open to the public, so even if you didn’t take part in the game jam you can still give your opinion.

The criteria for ratings are “Design”, “Originality” and “Adherence to the Theme”, and whilst there is no winner or prize, we’ll make sure to highlight some of the most interesting games in next week’s news post.

Check out the games here: https://itch.io/jam/oprgj2020/entries

We’d like to thank everyone that participated in the jam, and we’re looking forward to hosting a new one next year to see what crazy new games you come up with. :D

Note: If you want to help out games that didn’t get a lot of ratings yet you can filter by “least rated” or click on “submissions in need of ratings”.

Deep-Sea Elves Update

Thanks to a suggestion from our always helpful community we have updated the Deep-Sea Elves army with a lot of new units, bolstering their battle lines. Until now their army list was quite small, but with today’s update you can now field 10 new units!

These units were inspired by the Trident Realms of Neritica by Mantic Games, which feature a lot of awesome water and sea themed models. So if you’re coming over from Kings of War or are looking to grab a couple of new models, then this update is for you.

Wolf Brothers vs Orc Marauders – 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!

There’s a big box of new models out there and we couldn’t help but come up with some lists for it to get you started. These lists feature some sneaky Wolf Brothers taking on a beefy list of Orc Marauders, making for some rather interesting gameplay.

This week’s Quickplay Armies: Wolf Brothers vs Orc Marauders

Prime Brothers of the Wolf Detachment

  • 1x Captain w/ Counter, Camo Cloak, Pistol & Energy Sword
  • 5x Infiltration Squad w/ Counter
  • 5x Infiltration Squad w/ Counter

Orc Marauders

  • 1x Warlord w/ Ultra Armor, Twin Carbine & Ultra Claw
  • 5x Boss Mob w/ 1x Carbine + Heavy Flamethrower Attachment
  • 3x Ultra Bosses w/ 1x Dual Ultra Sawblades, 1x Twin Carbine & 1x Carbine + Heavy Flamethrower Attachment

The Wolf Brothers in this set are all about using Scout to control key regions and secure objectives early in the match. The list comes with a Captain with Camo Cloak that can hold his own, whilst the Infiltrators can use their Rending Carbines to take out heavily armored troops with ease. Don’t forget that everyone has Counter, so you can go toe-to-toe with the Orcs in melee.

The Orc Marauders on the other side focus on raw melee power combined with a hefty dose of Heavy Flamethrowers. The Warlord is a massive beast that can effortlessly take on entire squads, whilst the Utra Bosses can withstand sustained fire whilst they slowly move across the battlefield. Make sure to use your Boss Mob to strategically soak up some fire, and don’t be afraid to charge head-first into the enemy.

Grimdark-Orcs


That’s it for today, make sure to rate all of those awesome game jam games, and we’ll be back next week with the results. :)

Happy Wargaming!

Battle Sisters Troops and more

3D Print, Age of Fantasy, Firefight, Game Update, Grimdark Future, Skirmish

Hi everyone,

Today we’re bringing you some awesome new 3D print models, an update on some of the models on cgtrader, as well as some smaller fixes to a couple of armies… and something else too…


Battle Sisters Troops Released

Last month we released the powerful Battle Sisters Champion, but she was a little bit lonely, so this month we’re releasing some troops for her to lead into battle!

troops-render-1

These battle-hardened troops form the back-bone of the Battle Sisters army, ready to burn down traitors and aliens to a crisp. These models come with 2 different head designs, 5 different weapons, as well as optional backpacks.

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 29th of April, after which they will go up for sale on our CGTrader store at a higher price.

Models removed from CGTrader

As some of you may have already noticed, we’ve removed the Battle Brothers and Dwarves models from our CGTrader store.

For various internal reasons we’re unable to continue providing those models for free, and so they were removed from the store for now.

Currently we’re debating on what to do with those models in the future, but we’ll make sure to give an update on what happens to them soon. :)

We hope that everyone that already downloaded them enjoys them as they are, and we are sorry for any inconveniences this might have caused.


Minor Army Updates

Today we’re adding a new unit for the Dwarf Guilds, as well as lowering the maximum level that Havoc Brothers Psychics can have, as level 3 is usually reserved for more legendary units. We also removed the Plague Psychic as it seems to be causing some confusion, and to make sure that Disciples of Plague are more in line with the other Havoc Brother Disciples factions.

It also seems that when we did the last major army updates we forgot to change units that had both Ambush and Scout to only have either of them, so we went ahead and fixed those.

Here the full changelog:

Grimdark Future

Dwarf Guilds

  • Added new unit: Weapon Teams

Havoc Brothers

  • Dark Psychics can’t upgrade to level 3 anymore

Disciples of Plague

  • Plague Psychics have been removed (use Dark Psychics + Regeneration instead)

Human Inquisition

  • Spy Assassins now only have Ambush instead of Scout

Wormhole Daemons

  • Plague Swarms now only have Ambush instead of Scout

Age of Fantasy

Disciples of Plague

  • Plague Kings can now update each model with different weapons

Ratmen

  • Assassins now only have Ambush instead of Scout

Grimdark-Daemons


Just a little teaser…

Something new is coming, something cool is coming, but it’s too early to give you the full thing yet, so here is a tiny first glance at it…

Cover-Teaser-GFF-2


That’s it for today’s update. We hope that everyone is doing OK in these strange times and that our games can at least provide some minor relief for you. :)

New Full Rulebooks Released

3D Print, Age of Fantasy, Firefight, Full Rulebooks, Game Update, Grimdark Future, Merch, Skirmish

Hi everyone,

Over the past couple of weeks we’ve been releasing a ton of new stuff with the AI Rules, Campaign Rules, Mission Cards and Tournament Guides, but we’re not stopping there.

Today we’ve got a major update for the Full Rulebooks, as well as some updates to the core rules for all of our games. Let’s dig in!


New Full Rulebooks

Since the initial release of the Full Rulebooks about a year ago we’ve gotten a ton of great feedback from our players, and so over the past couple of months we’ve been working on updating the Full Rulebooks to make them even more awesome.

These new versions of the Full Rulebooks are jam-packed with new and updated content to enhance your games, ranging from smaller things like extra missions and actions, to big total conversions like rules for apocalyptic games or playing with small-scale minis.

Here a list of all the new and updated stuff you will find:

  • New Terrain Placement rules, with 6 placement styles
  • New Side-Missions rules, with 3 play styles and 18 side-missions
  • New Deployment Styles rules, with 6 deployment types
  • New Tactical Points rules, with 15 strategic doctrines
  • Updated Extra Missions rules, with 6 mission types
  • Updates Extra Actions rules, with 2 new actions
  • Updated Solid Buildings rules, now with collateral damage rules
  • Updated Random Events rules, with 18 new events
  • Updated Battlefield Conditions rules, with 6 new conditions
  • Updated Terrain & Objective Effects rules, re-written for clarity
  • Updated Fog of War rules, now with shifting focus and combat fatigue rules
  • Updated Brutal Damage rules, now with friendly fire, mishaps and crits rules
  • Updated Suppression and Fatigue rules, re-balanced for better gameplay
  • Updated Multiplayer Games rules, with 2 new play styles
  • Updated Apocalyptic Games rules, re-written for clarity and playability
  • Updates Small-Scales & Multi-Basing rules, re-written to be easier to play

Just as with the recent Point Calculators update, we’ve also done a major re-working of the layout, as well as adding new diagrams illustrations that show off the miniatures from a top-down perspective, and make things even easier to understand.

So, if you have been on the fence about getting the full rulebooks, or if you already own an older copy of the rulebooks, then we highly recommend that you check out the newest versions by supporting us: patreon.com/onepagerules

Note that we’ve also updated the Basic Rulebooks to reflect these changes, so if you had printed out a copy of those, then you should print out the new versions instead.


Core Rules Updates

As part of the Full Rulebook updates we’ve also gone ahead and updated a couple of the core game rules to enhance playability.

We’re changing how heroes work a little so that now you can use the unit’s quality value if the hero that’s in it has a worse quality. Also we’re making it so that now the hero always uses the defense value of the unit they join (unless they are the last model alive), streamlining the defense rolls process.

Then we found that Indirect weapons felt a little useless, so now you can fire without the -1 to hit penalty as long as you remain stationary. Finally we noticed that because of the short 12″ range on spell blocking, people ended up not really being able to use this mechanic very often, so we increased the range to 18″ to make it a better option.

On the AoF: Regiments front we’ve been struggling with how charges work for a long time, because it was too easy to charge into a unit’s flank even when standing right in front of them. Because of this units may now only pivot before charging, and not during the charge, ensuring that this won’t happen anymore.

Here the full changelog:

General Rules

  • Heroes may use their own morale when joining units, but aren’t forced to anymore
  • Heroes always roll for defense using their unit’s defense value, unless they are the last model alive
  • Indirect shots now only suffer a -1 to hit penalty when moving
  • Spell blocking now has a range of 18″ instead of just 12″

AoF: Regiments

  • Units may only pivot before moving and must move in a straight line when using Rush/Charge.

Dynamic Mission Cards

Oh yeah baby, we’re finally releasing official mission cards!

People have been asking for these for a long time now, especially after seeing them being used to great effect in Wyloch’s battle reports. So naturally after talking to him we picked them up, slapped a fresh coat of paint on, and released them to our players.

The dynamic mission cards can be found on the various game pages and are available for all games, so make sure to give them a try next time you play!

Point Calculators + AI Rules Updates

AI Rules, Game Update, Point Calculator

Hi everyone,

Today we’re really happy to announce that we’ve updated our Point Calculators with lots of cool new stuff, plus we’re bringing you one of the many upcoming re-workings of game rules with an update to the Solo AI Rules.


Point Calculators Update

For those of you that are unfamiliar with them, the Point Calculators are booklets with all of the rules and systems we use to create all units in the game, which are available via our Patreon page.

Until now the Point Calculators were pretty cool already, but they felt a little incomplete, especially after the big army updates we did a couple of months ago. So in order to provide our players with the best content we can, we’ve decided to go back and re-work the Point Calculators to bring them to a new glory.

The new versions of the Point Calculators were upgraded with a new layout to make everything clearer to read, as well as having all sections revised to make sure they’re as easy to understand as possible.

On top of that we’ve now added a couple of cool new features:

  • Army Checklist – There’s now a handy checklist in the army creation guidelines that helps you make sure your custom created armies have everything they need to be balanced with all of the official armies in the game.
  • Spell List Creation – We’ve added a new section on how to create your own spell lists and make sure that they’re balanced like the ones from the official armies, as well as the full roster of 35+ spell types that are available in the game.
  • Converting Armies to Firefight/Skirmish – Finally by popular demand there’s also a new section dedicated to how you can convert your custom armies for skirmish games, making sure that you have all the tools you need to play at any game size.

If you’ve always wanted to create your own armies this is the ultimate tool you need in your arsenal, and if you’ve already got the Point Calculator before, then this new version is definitely worth checking out, as it’s the most complete version yet.

The Point Calculators are available only here: www.patreon.com/onepagerules


Solo AI Rules Update

Lately we’ve been working hard at updating a lot of the existing rules, which we’ll be releasing over the next couple of weeks, among other cool new stuff. ;)

Today we’re starting with the Solo AI Rules, which definitely needed an overhaul in terms of how they were written, as well as some other details here and there. We hope that these new versions make it even easier for you to play games against the AI, and if you have any feedback on how we can improve them further please let us know!

Here the full changelog:

  • Overall re-wrote many sections to make them clearer
  • Hybrid units that are moving toward objectives and have no valid targets will now take rush actions instead of advance actions
  • Clarified how to identify enemies that are in the way, and that the AI will consider targets in proximity as valid even if not technically in the way
  • Re-wrote the controlling objectives rules to clarify that non-seized objectives with more friendly non-pinned units than enemies within 3″ already count as controlled
  • Clarified that the advancing rules apply to shooting and hybrid units only
  • AI units with Deadly will now target single-model units first, prioritizing those with the lowest remaining wounds
  • AI units with Indirect now always use Hold actions if they are in range of enemies
  • Firefight/Skirmish: When setting up objectives the table area is now split into 4 instead of 6, and when deploying units and activating them the table are is now split into 2 instead of 3

Open Call for Writers

Finally just a small update regarding the open call for writers!

We’ve received over 40 submissions, which is way more than we could’ve ever hoped for, and we’re really thankful for everyone that participated.

Since there were so many submissions we weren’t able to read them all yet, but we’re going to get back to the writers as soon as we have decided who we’d like to move forward with for our content.

Honestly it’s really hard to let people down, and it’s so cool that we’ve got so many submissions that we’re thinking about how we could maybe get everyone together to make something cool, a sort of community campaign or something.

Anyway, nothing sure yet, but thanks again for all the submissions. :D

Fantasy-Volcanic


That’s it for today, next week we’ve hopefully got some even more exciting things for you, but honestly… there’s going to be lots of cool new stuff for a while now!

Happy Wargaming!
