Small Update

Game Update, Painting Contest, Physical Minis, Video Content

Hi everyone,

Today I’ve just got a quick update for you, with some new rules for the Rebel Guerrillas as well as some other news regarding Patreon releases and such. The end of the month is always a big rush of preparing things for the next release, so I haven’t had a ton of time to work on Sellswords, but am hoping to be able to give more info soon.

Let’s get to it!


Rebel Guerrillas Updates

The Rebel Guerrillas are one of those armies that was not busted in any way, but that definitely needed some more love, so this week we’ve given it an overhaul.

The general idea was that we added spotters and pioneers to give some interesting tactical options, added veterans to give access to higher quality for mainline troops, vehicles now have the option to be more durable without being too heavy and finally light walkers now have lots more options to give more versatility to the unit.

Here’s the full changelog:

  • Added new units: Spotters, Pioneers, Veterans
  • Commanders can now take the Dug In rule
  • Psychics now have access to more upgrades
  • All vehicles now have access to Heavy Plating
  • Light Walkers have new weapon upgrade options

March Painting Contest – Voting

The submissions for the March painting contest are in, and now it’s time to vote. You can find full-sized pictures of the submissions, as well as a link for the voting by going here.


Battle Sisters on Etsy

Every week we’re adding a new army on our Etsy store, and now you can buy physical prints of our Battle Sisters models here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/onepagerules

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!

Note that due to some bugs in the system, a few of the units are currently missing, but they will be added ASAP. :)


April Previews + Roadmap

It’s crazy that another month is already over, so now it’s time to check out the previews of what we have in store for you for next month: https://www.patreon.com/posts/49194544


New Painting Tutorial

Last but not least, here’s a new video showing off how to paint our Frog-Mage. Make sure to subscribe for more painting tutorials, featuring the official OPR models!


That’s it for today, have a nice weekend!

Happy Wargaming!

Quick Post before the Weekend

3D Print, Game Update, Physical Minis, Video Content

Hi everyone,

Today I’ve just got a quick post for you, going over some army updates, as well as some new releases, plus a new painting tutorial. :)

Let’s get to it!


Army Updates

Today we’ve updated the Ghostly Undead army, giving it a complete makeover, and making it one of the most fun armies that we have in the game now. If you’ve had some interest in playing Ghostly Undead before, but didn’t enjoy their gameplay that much, then we highly recommend you take a look at this new and improved version!

Here’s the full changelog:

  • Added new units: Coach Chariot, Ghost Chariot
  • Sands of Time now gives the hero and her unit Regeneration
  • The Reap rule now deals additional wounds on defense rolls of 1
  • Mounted Reapers now have 6 attacks and can upgrade with Spectral Touch
  • Ghost Knights can now be upgraded with Stolen Time and Ghostly Overseer
  • Executioners can now be upgraded with Fear
  • Banshees now have Quality 3+ as well as Ambush and Chilling
  • Wraiths now have Quality 3+ as well as Ambush and Reap
  • Scythed Ghosts now have the Chilling rule
  • Revenants now have the Whirl rule
  • Mourner Banshees now have the Poison and Chilling rules
  • Ghost Swarms now have Quality 4+
  • Hexed Knights now have Flying and Spectral Touch
  • Dread Knights now have Quality 3+ and AP(1)

Note that since some units from the Ghostly Undead cross over to the Vampiric Undead, we have updated them as well in order to reflect these new rules.


Saurians on Etsy

Every week we’re adding a new army on our Etsy store, and now you can buy physical prints of our Robot Legions models here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/onepagerules

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!

Note that due to some bugs in the system, a few of the units are currently missing, but they will be added ASAP. :)


Patreon News

This week we released a new set of paper miniatures with the TAO Coalition, and they came out looking gorgeous! This is one of our bigger releases, with a bunch of models to customize your army and create interesting lists.

Additionally we have also released two new sets of Game Aids for the Dwarves and the Battle Sisters, which feature themed rulers, dice and objective markers (with beer barrels and weapon caches counting from 1 to 6).


Painting Tutorial

Last but not least, here’s a new video showing off how to paint one of our Robot Flesh-Eaters. Make sure to subscribe to Paintman Journeying for more painting tutorials, featuring the official OPR models!


That’s it from me today, have a nice weekend everyone! :D

I QUIT (my other job)

2D Print, 3D Print, Collaboration, Game Update, Physical Minis, Podcast

Hi everyone,

As many of you already know, OPR is run fully and solely by one person, which is me (hi!).

For the past 7 years I’ve been working on OPR in my free time, and have never paid myself a single cent from the money we made via subscriptions or store sales. In my mind I’ve always seen that money as a vote of confidence on your part, and it felt wrong to take that money for myself when I could instead invest it into providing you all with more content.

That was all very easy to manage whilst OPR was pretty small, but over the last few years the project has skyrocketed in popularity and has grown to be one of the top 10 biggest wargaming Patreons in the world, and by now this is in no way a one-man project anymore. Whilst I still take care of the majority of things, there are lots of people I hire to do stuff that I can’t, such as all of the awesome illustrations, paper miniatures and 3D print miniatures, and by now there are 10-15 people involved in OPR’s production every month.

I tried as hard as I could to keep doing this in my free time whilst still working a full-time job, which admittedly has not been very good for my own health over the past year, and so I’ve decided to finally pull the trigger and quit my job to dedicate myself to OPR full-time. By now OPR brings in enough money that I can pay myself a regular salary without having to feel guilty about compromising on releases, so don’t worry about things slowing down.

If anything, this means that I’ll now have more time to dedicate myself to OPR without going absolutely insane, and hopefully I’ll be able to improve my work-life balance as well, which has been suffering for too long now. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to do this, and hope that I can continue to provide you all with awesome games, miniatures, and more in the future. Thank you all for your support!

Alright, enough of that now, let’s get to the meat of this news post. :)


New Army Updates

Today we’re continuing with our army refresh updates, tackling the Infected Colonies. Until now this army was serviceable, but was lacking some oomph, with most units feeling very samey. In this new version we’ve overhauled the majority of units in the army, and have also added an army-wide Undead special rule to spice things up.

Here’s the full changelog:

  • Added new unit: Runners
  • All units now have the Undead rule
  • Hunter Champion and Hunters lost Fast but gained Ambush
  • Infected Champion now has Plague Command
  • Scientists can now upgrade to Psychic(2)
  • Zombies now have Regeneration
  • Infected Dogs now have Scout and Rending
  • Boomers now have more attacks and Poison
  • Chelonians now have more attacks and new upgrades
  • Infected Swarms now have Strider and Blast(3)
  • Ravens now have an additional AP(1) attack
  • Vultures now have Ambush and new upgrades

Speaking of the Undead rule, over time we’ve found that this has become one of the most valuable special rules in the game, and that it gave a little bit too much staying power to your units. In order to balance things out a little, units now take wounds from Undead on rolls of 1-2, instead of only on rolls of 1.

Here’s all of the armies that have been updated:

  • Grimdark – Havoc Brother Disciples
  • Fantasy – Ghostly Undead
  • Fantasy – Mummified Undead
  • Fantasy – Ossified Undead
  • Fantasy – Shadow Stalkers
  • Fantasy – Vampiric Undead

OnePageFools Podcast – Episode 3

The latest episode of the unofficial OPR podcast is available now, this time featuring none other than Ethan Seward, the brilliant illustrator behind all of our paper miniatures!


Robot Legions on Etsy

Every week we’re adding a new army on our Etsy store, and now you can buy physical prints of our Robot Legions models here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/onepagerules

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!


New Free Models on Cults 3D

Every month we add new free models to our Cults3D page, and this month we’ve added a Saurian Guardian as well as a Robot Flesh-Eater, bringing us up to 19 free models! :D

Get the models here: https://cults3d.com/en/users/onepagerules/creations


Patreon News

On the Patreon side of things, this week we released the final chapter of Darkness Within, our Age of Fantasy narrative campaign, which will be available exclusively on Patreon until the end of March. If you are interested in reading an awesome story set in the AoF universe, or are looking for new ways to play, make sure to check it out!

This week we also released our third set of Hive City Gangs paper miniatures, with the Miners Gang. The miniatures feature gangers with different mining equipment and weapons, as well as two trusty canine sidekicks.

This month our friends at Bite the Bullet were so kind to provide all of our Tier 2 patrons with an extra model as a free gift, with the fierce Kalista the Gladiator.

Find out more here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/48494745

Finally, speaking of 3D models, this week we’ve added two sets of themed bases for Dwarves and Battle Sisters, so all of our supporters can enjoy a total of 88 unique bases!


That’s it for today, thanks again for all of your support throughout these years! :D

Happy Wargaming!

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.

Check out the games here:


New Army Updates

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.

Game Updates, Etsy Store, Painting Videos + More

3D Print, Game Update, Physical Minis, Video Content, Writing Jam

Hi everyone,

Over the last week I’ve been extremely busy putting together a lot of new and exciting stuff for you. We’ve got some small but important game updates for you, as well as some army updates. We’ve now got a store where you can buy our models if you don’t have a 3D printer, and we’ve partnered up to create painting videos for our models.

On top of that I’ve been working hard on a lot of new patreon stuff, with a massive release for next month, adding a ton of new stuff like themed bases and game aids, as well as continuing the development of sellswords and the new arena updates. March is going to be a great month in terms of both games and models, so today’s update is just the beginning of lots of cool things to come.

Anyway, let’s get to it!


Writing Jam Submissions – Vote Now!

Last weekend we ran the 2nd ever OPR Writing Jam, and now it’s time to get your votes in. There’s lots of cool stories to read, so make sure to check them all out and give your honest feedback: https://itch.io/jam/oprwj2/entries


Game & Army Updates

Today we’ve updated all of the core rules, basic rulebooks, full rulebooks, starter sets and quickplay rules with a couple of small things that should hopefully clear up some of the most commonly asked questions, as well as provide a little more balance to the game.

Snipers don’t ignore cover anymore, giving units a slightly higher chance to survive if they stay in cover, which should be especially useful in Firefight and Skirmish. The Phalanx rule has also been modified, making it more useful against cavalry units and chariots, which should raise their value a bit more for their high price.

We’ve also updated the Robot Legion rules, giving Wardens a bit more utility with a new special rule, as well as modifying Support Platforms and the Fortress of Destruction to cover some models that were not playable before. The Blessing of Change rule has also been modified, hopefully giving players a bit more of chance to compete with Disciples of Changes at shorter ranges.

Here’s the full list of changes:

Grimdark + Fantasy – General Rules

  • Clarified the Indirect and Tough rules
  • Sniper doesn’t ignore cover anymore
  • Phalanx now ignores special rule effects from charging

Grimdark + Fantasy – Campaign Rules

  • Heroes now become 5pts cheaper/costlier when they gain an injury/talent trait

Grimdark + Fantasy – Disciples of Change

  • Blessing of Change now only affects enemies over 18″ away

Grimdark – Robot Legions

  • Wardens and their unit now ignore the Slow rule
  • Doom Tanks now have 36″ range on their Doom Cannon
  • Tripod Robots now have AP(4) and Blast(3) on their Doom Blaster
  • Support Platforms can now have an Overseer Pilot
  • Fortress of Destruction can now have a Nanobot Wraith-Shard

Etsy Store Open Now!

Don’t have a 3D printer and want our models? Take a look at our new Etsy Store, where you can buy the models already printed for you: https://www.etsy.com/shop/onepagerules

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!

Right now only the Alien Hives models are available, but we’re planning on adding one new army every week, so that within a few weeks the store will be complete. :)


Patreon News

This week we’ve had a couple of new releases on Patreon, with the 2D Havoc Dwarves and Alliance Fleet, as well as chapter 4 of Darkness Within, plus rules for Havoc Dwarves i arena.

If you’ve had your eyes on Warfleets: FTL for a while, now is your last chance to get it before it’s moved to WargameVault in a few days, where it will be sold at a higher price.

Finally we’ve made a post detailing the March Previews + Roadmap, and it’s going to be a glorious month, with $275+ worth of stuff for just $10!


OPR Painting Videos

This month we’ve also partnered up with Paintman Journeying on YouTube to bring you regular painting videos featuring our models. We highly recommend you subscribe to the channel to see the videos as soon as they’re released!
