2nd Edition is here!

Age of Fantasy, Firefight, Grimdark Future, Skirmish, Update

Hello everyone,

It is with great plasure that today we can finally announce the release of 2nd edition!

Today we have updated the rulebooks and army books to the newest edition, as well as made some additions to the patreon in order to accomodate the new changes. We have been working on this update for what seems like an eternity, so we hope that you like everything that’s new and what’s coming in the future.

Now then, let me give you a small tour of what has changed!

Basic Rulebooks & Full Rulebooks

Since the beginning of the project one of the most consistent pieces of feedback we get is that people love to use our games to introduce new players to the world of wargaming, so we decided to try and give those players a little help in starting out.

In addition to the good old single-page rules that we all know and love (now re-named “core rules”) we also made a Basic Rulebook available that is specifically aimed at new players.

This rulebook is about 10 pages long and explains the rules in much greater detail, including a lot of diagrams and examples to illustrate how the game works. It also covers some of the most basic wargaming concepts such as how to move models properly, how dice modifiers work, etc.

For patreon supporters at Tier 2 or higher we have also introduced a Full Rulebook that is aimed at more experienced players. This rulebook contains ton of additional rules for extra missions, battlefield conditions, special terrain and objectives, random events, solid buildings, multi-player games and how to play apocalyptic games.

Core Rules

The Core Rules are the main rules used to play our games, which everyone should be pretty familiar with. With the release of 2nd edition we have made a couple of important changes in order to simplify the game and unify the systems in order to make it easier to switch between Grimdark Future and Age of Fantasy.

Whilst there are a ton of small changes that were made, the biggest change that players will notice is how defense values work. It was very painful to see how one of the most core mechanics of the game caused so much confusion to so many players, and so we decided to just go ahead and re-work defense in order to simplify it for everyone.

Now instead of the attacker rolling against the unit’s defense value to wound it, it’s the defender that rolls their own defense value to block the hit. Each failed block is a wound.

This small change has a huge impact on the simplicity of how the game is played, because now there are no situations where one has to roll 6+/4+ in order to cause a wound, but instead you always roll a straight value from 2+ to 6+. In order to make sure that units with high defense (the old defense 7+ to 10+ units) are still hard to kill, we have given them a much higher Tough(X) value in order to compensate.

Outside of this we made a lot of smaller changes:

  • A roll of 6 is always a success and a roll of 1 is always a fail.
  • The basic recommended game size is now 750pts.
  • There are no more unit type restrictions in the game.
  • When shooting models with different weapons can shoot at different targets.
  • Poison now deals extra hits on rolls of 6 instead of being a defense modifier.
  • Flyers are now called Aircraft in the special rules
  • Ambush doesn’t cause units to scatter anymore
  • Fear is now a penalty on a per-model basis instead of a per-unit basis
  • Fearless now allows units to stop being pinned on a roll of 4+
  • There is a new rule called Mend which allows you to heal friendly units on a 4+
  • Psychic’s now roll D6+X in order to determine casting results
  • Dispelling now has a 12″ range instead of 18″, and there is no limit to dispels

Army Releases

Because of all the changes in the core rules we had to go back and re-work all of the armies in the game almost from the ground up. Almost all units and weapons had to be re-worked and re-balanced, as well as having to change the cost of everything in the game because we are using a new point calculation system.

In order to get the games out to you ASAP we decided to split the army releases into 3 waves, so we are going to be releasing more armies in the coming weeks/months until all of the existing armies have been released (as well as a few new ones).

The 1st wave of armies has already been released, so make sure to check the army section for each game to see what is coming in the 2nd and in the 3rd wave.

Point Calculation System

For those that are interested in creating their own units and armies, or even modify the existing ones, we have made the Point Calculation System available to patreon backers at Tier 3 or higher.

The Point Calculation System contains all of the maths required in order to create units and weapons, as well as a lot of helpful tips & tricks in order to create balanced units that fit within the existing ones.

The Future

So what’s next?

Right now we are focusing on the release of the 2nd and 3rd wave of armies, and then we will have to see what the future brings. We are thinking of ways to give you even more content on a regular basis, but we really want to make sure everyone can use their miniatures to play first.

For those of you with access to the secret forum, make sure to keep your eyes peeled for more information soon…

Final Thoughts

Enough talking for now, just go ahead and check out the games, dust off your minis and get back into the action! We really hope you enjoy the new edition. :)

Happy wargaming,

Gaetano

Prime Brothers Update!

Firefight, Grimdark Future, Update

Hey everyone,

Today we’re updating the Battle Brothers Detachments for Grimdark Future with some additional units and revisions to the Prime Brothers. Here is what has changed:

  • Added 1 new hero: Prime Psychic
  • Added 2 new infantry units: Prime Raiders and Aggro Brothers
  • Added 2 new vehicles: Prime Walker and Anti-Grav Tank
  • Added more weapon options for the Blaster Brothers and the Jetpack Brothers

With these additions you are now able to have a much more complete Prime Brothers army that can take out the enemy with formidable efficiency. I’m looking forward to seeing more people play this army over time as the Prime Brothers are extremely powerful but also cost a lot of points, so you have to be very tactical with them.

Dwarf Guilds emerge from the depths!

Firefight, Grimdark Future, Update

Hi there,

So it’s been a while since there was an official rules update, which is why I’m really happy to announce the release of a new army for Grimdark Future, the Dwarf Guilds.

The Dwarf Guilds are a union of all dwarven mining companies found in the Sirius sector, which fight under one banner for the prosperity of their race. Whilst they are short in statute one should not underestimate them, as they use their advanced technology to overcome all their shortcomings and dominate their foes.

If there any other armies that you’d like to see in the game feel free to shoot me an e-mail with your suggestions: onepageanon@gmail.com

Sky-Dwarves, Custodian Brothers & Lots More

Age of Fantasy, Firefight, Grimdark Future, Skirmish, Update

Hey everyone,

It’s update time again! This time we are releasing 2 new armies as well as a whole host of updates for all of our core games. First a bit about the armies:

Sky-Dwarves are a special faction of dwarves that bring steam-powered ships on the table and generally play very differently from the other dwarf factions that we have. There’s some great models for them out right now, so they’re pretty exciting.

Custodian Brothers are a new detachment which has been requested for a while. They bring incredibly powerful armor to the fight and also have a nasty walker with them. Fluff wise they are interesting because they are the only detachment that still brings women to the fight.


Here’s all of today’s additions/changes to the rules:

Grimdark Future

General
– The Rending rule now deals wounds on 2+ instead of dealing automatic wounds

Battle Brother Detachments
– Slightly modified the Blood Walker upgrade list to make it more streamlined

Dark Elf Raiders
– Shield of Darkness now costs 5pts

Machine Cult
– Fixed the Canticles special rules so it’s effects are on 1-3 and 4-6

TAO Coalition
– Jackals can now be upgraded with CCWs (A2)

Age of Fantasy

General
– The Poison rule now deals wounds on 2+ instead of dealing automatic wounds
– Skirmish: Fixed the description of the Tough(x) special rule

Dwarves
– Added two new units: Steam-Power Suits and Animated Constructs
– Heroes mounted on War-Bears and Magma Dragons now ignore the Slow special rule

Goblins
– Boss heroes now get the Inspiring special rule
– Fixed upgrade list A so that the Boss can be mounted on a Large Spider

Mummified Undead
– The High King can now be mounted on a Chariot or a War Sphinx

Galactic Mercenaries are ready for hire & more updates

Age of Fantasy, Firefight, Grimdark Future, Skirmish, Update

Hello everyone,

The weekend is here so I’ll keep this one quick and easy. We have a new faction our for Grimdark Future with the Mercenaries. There are guns for hire that can be added to any faction, and include units for the Human Inquisition and Elven Jesters.

On the Age of Fantasy side we don’t have a new faction per-se, but instead a modification of an existing faction with new units. The Forces of Havoc have been re-named to be the Havoc Warriors, and there is a new book where you can find rules for Havoc Warrior Disciples. These include all sorts of cool new units such as the furious Gore Reavers, savage Birdmen, pestilent Plague Kings and crazed Lust Warriors.


As always we are also patching a couple of other things:

Grimdark Future

Battle Brother Detachments
– Fixed the price of the Dark Brothers upgrade for Destroyers

Machine Cult
– Added 2 new heroes: Vanguard Alpha, Stalker Chief
– Fixed the price of upgrade list D

Age of Fantasy

Humans
– Corrected upgrade list A so that weapons are A2 instead of A3
– Corrected upgrade list I so that you can replace one Rifle/Crossbow too

Rift Daemons
– Added 3 new mounts: Throne of Blood, Flamer Chariot, Razor-Flail Chariot

Titan Lords fall from the skies & Rift Daemons rise from the abyss

Age of Fantasy, Grimdark Future, Skirmish, Update

Hello hello,

Today I am very excited to be bringing you 2 new armies from Grimdark Future and Age of Fantasy, both of which are very unique:

The Titan Lords are interesting because all of their units are titans which pack some incredibly heavy weapons. They can either be taken as a stand alone army or as extra units for your existing army.

The Rift Daemons are a great addition because they are are integral part of the Age of Fantasy lore, so it’s great to be able to field this existential threat on the battlefield.


We’ve also updated some small things:

Age of Fantasy

General
– Sergeants now have +1 to melee or shooting rolls (pick one)

Wood Elves
– Fixed unicorns having the flying rule
