Starters Set, Models, Teasers and More

3D Print, Kyoushuneko Miniatures, OPR Game Jam, Starter Sets

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got some our first starter set for you, some new 3D models, an update on the 2021 game jam, some reminders for those that are new, as well as teasers for some upcoming releases.


Grimdark Future Starter Set

When it comes to miniature wargaming, it can be quite difficult for players to get into a new game since there’s usually a large cost involved with buying new books, miniatures, terrain, etc.

In order to help new players find our games and get them playing as fast as possible, we’re going to be regularly releasing new starter sets for sale on WargameVault, which serve as an all-in-one package to get people started.

So with that we’re proud to release the first Grimdark Future starter set: Battle for Magellan-2

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

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

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


Dwarf Warriors 3D Models

Dwarves are known for their prowess in battle and lack of fear when faced with enemies twice their height, and these Dwarf Warriors are rightly respected by their enemies.

These models were made in collaboration with Kyoushuneko Miniatures, check out the Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/kyoushuneko_miniatures 

These models come with 5 different head designs, 5 different body designs and 5 different weapon types (axes, hammers, picks, maces, spears).

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 June, after which they will go up for sale on our CGTrader store at a higher price.


OPR Game Jam 2021

In order to spread more awareness about the OPR Game Jam and make sure that people’s games from this year’s jam don’t get lost, we’ve added a new section to our website where people can check them out.

Whilst we were at it we’ve also decided to already create the page for the 2021 jam, this way people can slowly join over the course of a year and hopefully we can get even more participants to create awesome games!

Make sure to sign up here: https://itch.io/jam/oprgj2021 


Community Reminders

As the project keeps growing we have more and more new people joining us, which is really awesome, but we also understand that it’s hard to keep up with all the stuff we’ve got going on. If you’re new to the project you should definitely check these things out:

  • Newsletter – Sign up to receive monthly recaps of everything we release.
  • Forum – Find the FAQ, ask questions and find lots of shared content.
  • Facebook Group – A great place to share images and talk about our games.
  • Discord – Chat with the community and organize games online.
  • Teespring – Show your support with an official OPR t-shirt.

Upcoming Releases Teaser

With full rulebooks for all of our main games having been released, some of you have been asking what’s next for OPR in terms of game releases and expansions. So far we’ve been pretty vague about the road ahead, but today we’re ready to reveal just a little more about what is coming up in the near future.

Way back in our January Community Survey (about time we made another one actually…), we asked you what type of expansions you’d be interested in the most, and the top results were narrative campaigns and dynamic mission rules. Whilst we released a set of Dynamic Mission Cards in March, we never actually said anything more about narrative campaigns, so you guessed it, that’s what we’re currently working on.

Since it’s still in development we don’t want to give out too many details yet, but we’re currently working on a narrative campaign for Grimdark Future, which will take you on an epic adventure with lots of cool missions and an exciting story to read. This is the first time we’re trying out a narrative campaign, and we’re very curious to see how it turns out!

Another thing that we asked in the community survey was what settings people would be interested in for our next full game, and the top result was spaceship battles. This result as well as all the great feedback we received when we re-released Orion’s Gate / War Fleets in December has really pushed us towards making spaceship battles our next game.

As before, since this is still all early in development we don’t want to give out too many details, but for now you can expect that a spaceship battles game will be going into early access sometime in the near future, with a full public release hopefully a couple of months down the road. Don’t worry if you’re a fan of our current games though, we will continue fully supporting and updating them too. :)


That’s it for today, we’re really excited to be working on all of these new things, and we’ll be providing you with more details soon. Make sure to sign up to our Newsletter. ;)

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”.

Dwarf Riflemen – New 3D Print Models

riflemen-render-1

These models were made in collaboration with Kyoushuneko Miniatures, check out the Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/kyoushuneko_miniatures 

Dwarves are master craftsmen that are able to build the most intricate of gunpowder weapons. These weapons are so powerful that only Dwarf Riflemen are able to wield them.

Check them out here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/dwarf-riflemen-37029414

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

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.

Fantasy-Deep-Sea


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!

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.

Open Call for Writers, New Collaboration and More

3D Print, Battle Report, Collaboration, Grimdark Future, Kyoushuneko Miniatures

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!

Grimdark-Prime


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!
