This week has been pretty fun, as we spent it preparing for our April Fools joke, which you can check out on our Patreon by clicking here.
Apart of that we’ve been working on the preparation of our April release, adding some new models on our Etsy store, as well as adding some new units to the Disciples of Lust. This is going to be just a quick update, and I hope you have a great weekend. :)
Let’s get to it!
Disciples of Lust Update
Today we’ve updated the Havoc Warriors Disciples of Lust for Age of Fantasy with a host of new units. These add some new basic infantry and large infantry troops, as well as some super fast cavalry to the army.
Today we’re happy to announce that Darkness Within is available for purchase! :D
Darkness Within is a narrative campaign for Age of Fantasy that follows the story of Misha, a young princess who must rise to the challenge and reclaim her throne after a vampire uprising brings darkness to the realm.
This game expansion for Age of Fantasy takes players on an adventure across 10 missions which are tied together by an exciting story of epic proportions. Rules for unit progression are also included, so you can watch your armies grow and evolve throughout the campaign.
Even though this narrative campaign was written with Humans and Vampiric Undead in mind, it is easy to imagine this type of clash to be happening between any of the other factions in the world, so feel free to swap them out with whatever armies you have.
Over the past week we’ve been mostly working on the release of the Patreon rewards for February and for March, but also had some time to work on the new version of our arena games, which is now available for everyone. :)
This month also sees the release of lots of new gaming stuff, with the full rulebook for Warfleets: FTL now available for sale, the new version of our Arena games available to the public, and some updates to various army lists of GF and AoF.
Let’s get to it!
Writing Jam #2 Results
Two weeks ago we ran our second ever writing jam, which was pretty great, with 60+ participants and 19 submissions, it’s nice to see this style of jam grow and give the community a shared space to be creative.
We’ll be back with the 3rd edition in August, and you can sign up here!
Thanks for participating everyone! :D

We’ve also released a starter set for those that don’t have spaceship models, which comes with paper models for the Empire and Marauders fleets, as well as a full set of Space Terrain. The starter set also comes with two pre-made fleet lists, so that you can get started with the game in no-time.
The starter set can be bought here, so make sure to check it out to get started. :)
We’re very proud to see the first game we created in early access finally be released, and we’re already working on our next early access game Sellswords, which you can access on Patreon now. Thanks for your support!
New Arena Games Available
In other big game news, the new version of our arena games is now available for download!
The new version of arena is much faster, more engaging, and doesn’t require and can even be played withot a hex board. We know that this might be a bit jarring at first, but we trust that after a couple of matches you will also find the new version to be more enjoyable.
We are going to keep the old version available for download here until the 31st of March, after which it will be removed. If you want to keep it make sure to download it before that.
Over the next couple of weeks we’re going to be making some much needed updates to a couple of the armies that currently haven’t been getting a lot of love, as well as some other small updates here and there.
Today we’ve updated the Beastmen army for AoF, re-working a lot of the units to make them a bit more varied and interesting, as well as adding some new hero rules. We’ve also made some minor updates to the Robot Legions, adding some options to fit our new models.
Here’s the full changelog:
Added new unit: Hunt Master
Best Champions can now take Beast Companions
Heroes can now be upraded with Hit & Run and Wild Ambush
Minotaur Bosses, Minotaurs and Minotaur Giants can now be upgraded with Impact
Shamans, Hunters, Raiders and Hunter Chariots lost the Furious special rule
Hunters, Raiders and Hunter Chariots now have Strider
Elites now have the Headtaker special rule
Centaurs now have the Crazed special rule
Guardian Shields now provide Shield Wall instead of Stealth
Annihilators may now replace their Gauss Cannons for Hyper Swords
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!
March Painting Contest
Finally as the last piece of news for today, we’ve posted the guidelines for the March painting contest, which is now sponsored by Elegoo so that winners get free bottles of resin!
Speaking of painting, here’s a new video showing off how to paint one of our Saurians. Make sure to subscribe to Paintman Journeying for more videos on how to paint miniatures, featuring the official OPR models!
That’s it for today, hope you all have a great weekend and we’ll be back with more army updates soon. :)
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!
The OPR Writing Jam #2 is now live, and the theme is:
You now have 48hrs to write your story, and send in your submission by:
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!
This week has been quite busy, with us preparing for the end-of-month releases, as well as starting work on everything that’s coming out next month.
Since our posts have been getting longer and longer with time, we’re going to try to be more brief in the future, so that you don’t have to read massive walls of text to find out what’s new every week.
The 2D6 version of Warfleets: FTL is going to be removed from our website on the 31st of January, so make sure to download it now before it’s too late by going here!
We’d like to remind everyone that the spirit of Warfleets: FTL 2D6 is going to live on as part of our other spaceships game Orion’s Gate, which you can find in the one-offs section.
Darkness Within – Chapter 2
The second chapter of Darkness Within is now available on Patreon, and continues the story of princess Misha’s quest to defeat the vampire menace and re-claim her throne.
The campaign has now been updated with beautiful cover art and interior illustrations, making for a truly awesome package filled with exciting stories and epic battles!

There you will also find important updates on how we’re improving our production process in order to provide you with even more content in the future!
OnePageFools Podcast #2
Grimdark Future Batrep(Spanish)
Modular Terrain Tutorial (Sponsored Video)
That’s it for today, come back next week for some brand new free models, as well as some news about the writing jam that’s happening in February!
Today we’ve got some small game updates for you, some big changes for warfleets, some new models, a new one-off game and even a battle report.
Let’s get to it!
Today we’ve updated a 30+ army lists in order to provide some much needed hotfixes, clearing up some confusing rules, as well as tweaking a couple of units and special rules.
Here’s all the changes:
GF & AoF – Multiple Armies
Rules that allow units to block spells as if they were Psychic/Wizard now get +2 to block
Rules that allow units to repair damage now work on 2+ instead of 4+
Shield Wall rule now only works when all models have the rule
GF – Robot Legions
Tri-Scorpion Pistoleer now has Ambush and Hunter, but only Tough(3)
GF & AoF – Havoc Brothers / Havoc Warriors
Added new unit: Furies
Warfleets: FTL Update
As previously announced, we’ve been secretly working on a D6 version of Warfleets: FTL for a couple of months now, and today we’re very happy to release the game for everyone.
Even though we think that the 2D6 version of the game was awesome in its own right, the actual gameplay ended up being a little bit slower and more mathy then our original vision. By switching to a D6 based system, we’re making the game much faster and more cinematic, without sacrificing any of the strategy.
With this we are considering the bulk of the game to be done, and the Full Rulebook is going to be released for everyone in March. If you want the Full Rulebook (plus much more) right now, then you can get it by supporting us on Patreon.
We know that a lot of you like the 2D6 version, so we’re doing two things to keep you happy:
The current 2D6 version will remain available on our website until the 31st of January for you to download. It comes in a .zip with all of the core rules, faction book and the basic rulebook. Make sure to download it by clicking here before it’s gone.
We’ve updated the Orion’s Gate rules to be more in line with all of the improvements from FTL, and they’re available for download in the One-Off Games section. These rules are not going to be removed, meaning that a 2D6 battleships game is always going to be available for you.
Give the game a try, we think you’re going to love it! ;)
Soul Forge Studio
Speaking of Warfleets: FTL, as many of you know, a few months back we release a few sets of 3D Spaceships, which were made by the talented Danny Cyanide.
Well, over the past few months Danny been running his own Patreon called Soul Forge Studio, which focuses on releasing awesome BFG style ships, which are fully modular!
This week we’ve also released two new paper minis sets with the Ratmen Clans and the Xenos Fleet, which are available for download on Patreon.
As a side-note, with this release we’ve also added the Ratmen Clans warband to arena season 3, and we’re currently working on generally streamlining and improving the game. We will be postin more info on that soon, so keep your eyes peeled arena fans!
Little Dice Wars
Whilst looking through our archive we found an old game we made called Little Dice Wars, which is an adaptation of Little Wars by H. G Wells, so that it’s playable with modern miniatures and dice, instead of using lead soldiers and firing toy guns.
For those of you that are unfamiliar with Little Wars, this is the game that basically started it all. It’s the grandaddy of modern miniature games and laid the foundations for most of the wargames you play today.
We’re sure that some of you will appreciate this little game and after playing it a couple times it actually has some really interesting mechanics that you don’t see in modern wargames (no dice rolling for infantry combat, taking prisoners of war, what?!).
We hope that everyone had a great winter holiday and a great new years eve!
This update is going to be fairly light, just keeping you up to speed with the latest releases, the painting competition, and we’ve also got a new free model for you.
Let’s get to it!
December + January Painting Contest
First up, we’d like to congratulate the winners of the December painting contest!
1st Place – Erna Maister
2nd Place – Noladd
3rd Place – Scorn Mandark

With that contest out of the way, it’s now time for the January contest to begin. Due to some production delays with our new Saurian models, we’re extending the deadline to the 25th of January for this month!
RULES: Paint any 1 model from our December release and share a high resolution picture of it on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter or Discord. Make sure to share a high resolution picture and tag @onepagerules so that we don’t miss it!

Good luck everyone!
Jakob’s Path Released
The Jakob’s Path narrative campaign for Grimdark Future has now been released to the public, and is available for purchase on WGV/DTRPG. The story follows an epic clash between Battle Brothers and Orcs over the course of 10 missions, although it can be played with any other armies as well.
The standalone campaign is just $4.99, but we’ve also got a bundle for $11.99 that includes paper miniatures for two full armies of Battle Brothers and Orcs, plus paper miniatures of all the heroes in the campaign, plus a complete set of paper terrain.
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. These include full color miniatures for all factions, full color hex boards, as well as full color play tokens and deadly hexes.
Now that season 2 has been released, we’re going to be starting work on season 3, which will only be available in early access for the next 6 months. If you’re an arena fan, then make sure to support us on Patreon!
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.
Don’t forget that the GFF expansion Gang Wars is only available on Patreon until the end of the month, after which it will be put up for sale on WGV/DTRPG for a higher price.
New 3D Robot Legions & Saurians Released
In December we started releasing two new 3D print armies, and now wave 1 has been released on MMF as a bundle with 20% discount. If you’re a patron you also get 40% off on top of that, so check them out!
We’re going to be releasing even more awesome models for these two armies throughout January and February, so make sure to support us on Patreon to get them at the lowest possible price ever. :)
Free Skeleton Archer
It’s been a few weeks since we released a new free model, and that definitely needs to be fixed. This is the last free model we’re releasing from our previous armies, and next month we’ll start releasing free models from our new armies, so make sure to follow us on our Thingiverse page.
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…
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!
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!
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.
Holiday Sale on MMF
Looking to get some more christmas presents?
You can now get 50% off everything in our MMF store by using code OPRXMAS50!
Note: Promotion valid from 15th of December to 1st of January.
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.
Today we’ve got lots of cool news for you, from the Writing Jam, to our Gang Wars and Jakob’s Path expansions, a new AoF:S Starter Set, new Spear Skeletons and more.
Let’s get to it!
OPR Writing Jam #2
Back in September we hosted our very first OPR Writing Jam, which saw participants create a one-page story set in the OPR universe within a 48hrs deadline, and set to a theme.
Since people seem to have enjoyed both writing and reading the stories, and we’ve had multiple people request it over the past few months, we have decided to host the writing jams every 6 months!
This means that between game jams and writing jams, we’re going to have an OPR Jam every 3 months, allowing all of our fans to express their creativity and get together as a community to build fun stuff together.
The next writing jam is going to be in February, and you can sign up HERE.
Gang Wars Progress
Recently we announced that Gang Wars was under development, and things have been moving forward pretty quickly for the expansion over the last few weeks.
Whilst the game is still under development in early access, we’ve already added 95% of the content, and the expansion is now fully playable, only needing some minor tweaks.
PRIZE: The community will vote for the best looking submission, and the top 3 submissions will get one FREE month on Patreon at Tier 2 (handled via refund).
BONUS: One other randomly determined participant will also get one FREE month on Patreon at Tier 2 (handled via refund).
NOTE: The miniatures should be painted by you, no commissions allowed. By entering the contest you give OPR permission to share the pictures on our social media platforms.
Free Skeleton Spearmen
If you supported us on Patreon in September or bought our Skeleton Warriors set on MyMiniFactory, rejoice, because we’ve just added spear options to them for free!
Don’t worry though, if you didn’t have the chance to get the models yet, they’re still available to buy on MMF, and you also get a 30% discount if you support us on Patreon.
We’re also going to have a special christmas sale in a couple of weeks, offering 50% store discounts, so if you’re looking for the cheapest deal just be a little more patient and you can get these models for super cheap.
Free Soul-Snatcher Model
Last but not least, guess what? Another free model! This has been a streak of one new free model every week on Thingiverse for over a month, a new record for us.
Voting will be open until Sunday 22nd of November, so be fast!
Make sure to read and vote on as many entries as you can, and if you want to chat with the designers or even give the games a try on Roll20 or TTS, then join our Discord, where we have a dedicated Game Jam channel.
Voting will be open until Thursday the 26th of November, and you can vote for multiple painters too, so don’t hold back!
GFF: Gang Wars is coming!
It seems that not a month goes by without us revealing some cool new thing, so here we go again with a brand new expansions for Grimdark Future: Firefight with Gang Wars!
So, what exactly is Gang Wars?
Gang Wars is an expansion for GFF that provides additional rules for violent gang combat in the streets of the dangerous and futuristic Hive City.
The rules are designed to be used both for one-off matches as well as for linked campaigns, and they can be played with any armies, although we recommend using Gangs of Hive City.
This is a standalone expansion, so you just need the free core rules and army lists that are available on the website, however you can also use the extra rules from the Full Rulebook to further expand your games.
The expansion’s campaign rules are based off the core campaign rules, however they come with a ton of extra content that add new layers to your GFF campaign experience.
In linked campaigns gangs will fight over city blocks and special locations, with an expanded roster of new skills and equipment, as well as a lot of other surprises. If you just want to play one-off games don’t worry though, most of the stuff can be used for single matches as well, such as 12 brand new missions and urban terrain rules.
Right now all of the following content is being added to the game, however there are even more systems that we’re playing around with, so you might get even more stuff in the end!
New Skill Traits
Hive City Armory
Territory Control Rules
Gang Turf Exploration
12 New Missions
Urban Terrain Rules
City Fighting Rules
Critical Hits Rules
36 New Random Events
Gang Wars is currently in early access on Patreon, with new content being added every week, and we’re hoping to have the first completed draft by the end of the month.
If everything goes well, then we’ll keep the game for a little while longer in early access, after which it will be removed and be available for sale in our WargameVault store.
This has been a blast to design, and we can’t wait to see people’s reactions once it’s out!
Today we’ve got just a quick update, with the OPR Game Jam coming in 2 weeks, a new chapter for Jakob’s Path, as well as Release Previews for everything you’re going to get in November, plus new Battle Reports of course!
Let’s get to it!
OPR Game Jam #2 – November 13th
First up, we’re very happy to announce that the 2nd OPR Game Jam is going to happen on the 13th of November!
What is the OPR Game Jam?
This is a 48hr game making marathon, focused on creating one-page miniatures games based on a common team. Anyone can participate, and you can make games solo or with a team, and we’ll have a dedicated Discord channel so that creators can chat together.
At the end of the 48hrs the games everyone gets to vote on what games they enjoyed the most, and then we will highlight a couple of our favourites on the OPR website. There is no winner or prize, it’s all just for fun!
Jakob’s Path is a narrative campaign for Grimdark Future, which is being released in 5 chapters. Each chapter continues the story and features 2 new missions for you to play.
Whilst the campaign was written with Battle Brothers vs Orc Marauders in mind, it can be played with any other factions and whatever models you have available.
Chapter 4 – A bit shaken but still hopeful after the loss of many men, the Battle Brothers push on following the tracker’s signal. Little did they know that that simple signal was going to lead to a clash for the ages…
October seems to have flown by so quickly, and now we’re already revealing what’s coming up in November, and boy oh boy is it going to be a great month! :D
Here’s everything that’s coming at you:
Alien Hives – Winged Prime Warrior
Alien Hives – Prime Warrior w/ Sword & Whip
Alien Hives – Ravenous Beasts
Alien Hives – Carnivo-Rex
Mummified Undead – Mummy Priest
Mummified Undead – Mummy King on Skeletal Steed
Mummified Undead – Skeleton Archers
Mummified Undead – Giant Statue
On top of that we’re also going to be releasing a huge welcome pack with 15+ models, as well as continuing all of our other usual releases with 2D minis, arena warbands, jakob’s path, and more stuff to be reveales!
Here some early previews of the Skeleton Archers:
Game Related Updates
These past few weeks have been kind of crazy as we’ve had to deal with a lot of background stuff, but fret not, we’ve also been scribbling down lots of game related updates that we’re going to implement!
The Custodian Brothers are going to get an update that adds a lot of missing units, and we’re also going to be updating the Halflings adding more stuff to them as well. Then we’re also going to be heavily re-working the Gangs of Hive City list in preparation for… something cool. ;)
For the other games, we’re currently working on a large FTL update that’s going to fix some of the balancing issues we’ve found through more playtesting, and for the Arena Games we’re halfway through development of a custom warband creator so that you can use any models you have for them!
Starting off with a bang, we’ve got a 3750pts solo match of Orc Marauders vs Plague Brothers by Sad and Lonely Gamer, which features two absolutely massive armies.
Then we’ve got a new batrep by Battle Knights, featuring 1000pts of Halflings vs Humans, in which two badass Cockatrices go berserk!
Finally Stonehorse Gaming has published another AoF: Regiments tactics video, this time discussing the deployment phase and various strategies for how to best deploy your army.
That’s it for today, hope you enjoyed this quick update, and we’re looking forward to the Game Jam in November to see all of your crazy and awesome game ideas!
