Today we’ve got 2 New Armies, Painting Contest results, a bigger Store Discount, lots of Paper Miniatures, as well as great news for Arena Season 2 and a new Battle Report.
Let’s get to it!
As announced last week, we’ve got 2 new extremely powerful armies coming at you, the Giant Tribes and Custodian Brothers!
The Giant Tribes are a new army for Age of Fantasy which is made up purely of giant models, with tons of different varieties for you to try out. This is a totally unique army for Age of Fantasy, as you can now field an entire army made up of just 1-2 models, or ally massive giants with your existing army.
The Custodian Brothers used to be part of the Battle Brother Detachments, but we’ve decided to split them off and give them the makeover that they deserve! The new Custodian Brothers are much more durable and dish out a lot more attacks, making for a tiny army of extremely powerful units.
Check out the army folders in the respective game pages to download them!
Painting Contest Results
This month we ran the very first Painting Contest, and now the results are in!
The winner is:
Congratulations to Sebastian, who has won one free month at Tier 3 on Patreon!
Barry makes really cool comics set in the world of Phineus, and if you support him on Patreon you not only get early access to his upcoming comics, but also to bonus comics that are not available on the main site for free!
Today we’ve got a ton of new stuff for you, price cuts, a painting competition, our new store, pre-supported models, a new collaboration, stretch goals, patreon updates, new units and some battle reports.
Let’s get to it!
30% Discount on Arena Games
Starting off with a bang, we’ve got a hefty 30% discount on our arena games!
From now on we’ll also be doing our file delivery via MyMiniFactory, here’s how it works:
Our 3D print files are delivered via MyMiniFactory; in order to have access to your monthly rewards you need to use the same e-mail address on Patreon and MyMiniFactory.
As soon as new models are released, you will receive an e-mail to redeem your files, which will then be permanently available in your MyMiniFactory library.
We update our e-mail list every week on Monday, so if you still haven’t received your files please be patient, they are either not ready for delivery yet (see below) or you will receive them as soon as our e-mail list is updated again.
That’s it, if you have any questions please let us know!
The files from in both standard STL, supported STL and supported LYS format, giving you plenty of options on how to print them. All of our supports have been fully tested to guarantee that they work well and don’t damage the models.
Collaboration with Asgard Rising
This month we’re doing a cross-promotion with Asgard Rising, providing you with their awesome Jarl Rurik model. Here’s a message from the team:
From today until the end of this month only for One Page Rules Patrons we have an exclusive gift : “Jarl Rurik – Midgard Viking Shieldmans Chieftain”
This figure is provided by our friends from Asgard Rising Miniatures. They do some incredible detailed miniatures fantasy style.
As our Patreon following keeps growing, we want to provide more and more value to all of our subscribers, and so we’ve decided to add a series of stretch goals!
The stretch goals are simple:
If we hit 700 subscribers we will give a 30% discount code for our store
If we hit 850 subscribers we will give a 40% discount code for our store
If we hit 1000 subscribers we will give a 50% discount code for our store
Right now the discount codes are only available for Tier 3 patrons, however we’re currently also thinking of re-working the structure of our tiers, so in the future you may very well see the discount codes being provided to all of our tiers…
Patreon Tier 1 Removal
As you already read from the title, we are going to be closing down Tier 1 at the end of the month (31st of October). We know this is probably not news you were expecting to get, so we wanted to give you a heads up and an explanation of what is going on.
Over the past year the project has been growing and expanding, and with it our offering has become bigger and bigger. As we keep adding more content at Tier 2 and Tier 3, we noticed that over time Tier 1 has become a bit redundant, and so we decided to shut it down and ask people to switch to Tier 2.
In order to make the switch that much sweeter, starting in October we’re going to be providing all of the PSD rewards at Tier 2 as well. :)
We’re sorry for any inconvenience this might cause, and we’re happy to see you as part of Tier 2 and share more awesome content with you!
With new model kits coming out left and right, we’ve decided to update some of our existing armies, and we’re also going to release a couple of new ones in the coming weeks.
We’ve also decided to streamline the way that upgrade lists for Battle Brother Detachments, Havoc Brother Disciples and Havoc Warrior Disciples are displayed, making them a bit easier to read and use.
Looking at the latest version of the Battle Brother Detachments you might notice that the Custodian Brothers are missing, and that is because they’re going to get their very own army book soon!
Here the changes in today’s update:
Added new units: Prime ATV, Anti-Grav Tank, Prime Speeder, Support Turret
Modified and condensed hero units
Added new options for heroes with Combat Bikes, Grave Armor, Veteran Infantry and Repair
Assault Squads and Prime Brothers can now be upgraded to Veteran Infantry
Prime Brothers can now be upgraded with Grave Armor and Heavy Machineguns
Heavy Anti-Grav Transport and Destroyer Tanks now have Tough(18)
Added new units: Destroyer Robot Snakes, Tri-Scorpion Pistoleer, Heavy Annihilator
Tripod Robots can be updated with new weapons
Heroes can now be upgraded with Jetbikes
Once again Sad and Lonely Gamer has released a brutal solo battle report for Grimdark Future, this time featuring 2000pts of Wolf Brothers vs Orc Marauders.
This week we’ve also got a new channel covering our games. Battle Knights have released an awesome Age of Fantasy battle report that serves both as a how-to-play video, as well as just an enjoyable battle. They put up Halflings vs Chivalrous Kingdoms, and got some really stunning models and terrain!
That’s it everyone, next week we’ll hopefully have even more game updates for you, and soon enough we’ll start bothering you with Game Jam #2 updates… ;)
Things keep moving fast at OPR, and today we’ve got a super-packed update for you, with tons of new releases, as well as a bunch of different videos for you to watch.
Let’s get to it!
Community Wiki Update
Before we begin, we wanted to highlight that over the past weeks the community wiki has been getting a ton of updates, and we now have 100+ pages full of content already!
There is something for everyone in the wiki, with dedicated game pages which give you an overview of all games and lore, as well as individual faction pages for Grimdark, Fantasy and Warfleets: FTL with more details.
For those of you that are interested in strategic tips, we have tactics pages for both Grimdark and Fantasy factions, as well as pre-made quickplay army lists for Grimdark and Fantasy, which cover most recently released box sets.
But what is probably the highlight of the wiki is that we now have dedicated miniatures pages where you can see exactly what models you can use for which units for both Grimdark and Fantasy. No more needing to guess what all those crazy alien hives units are!
The wiki is an amazing resource, and we’re really happy to see it grow, but it is by no means complete. If you’d like to contribute make sure to join our Discord server where we have dedicated wiki discussions: https://discord.gg/djBydgk
Ever since we started providing 3D miniatures, people have been asking us if it would be possible to get them printed for them since they don’t have a 3D printer. For the longest time we’ve been trying to find a good print-on-demand solution that isn’t prohibitively expensive, and it seems that we might have just solved the issue!
We have found a US-based supplier that is able to provide print-on-demand miniatures at a reasonable price, and now we would like to give them a shot to see if this is something that can become a “feature” we provide.
In order to make sure that this is something that is viable for the future, we would like to do a test run first, and so are now looking for volunteers that are interested in our previously released Battle Sisters models.
All questions regarding pricing, shipping, etc. will be answered via e-mail
This is a US-based supplier, so you can expect shipping outside of the US to be pricey
You don’t have to buy the full army bundle, but can choose just to print individual units
Right now you can only get the Battle Sisters models printed
We want to make this very clear,this is a partnership between us and the supplier to provide an easy and reliable way for you to find a print-on-demand service. The supplier is NOT selling you our models, but they are only providing the service of printing them for you. This means that you need to buy the files from us first and then give them to the supplier in order for them to print them. This also means that we have no control over how the supplier handles their part of the business, and all of your questions ultimately have to be answered by them.
Due to the nature of the testing we expect this whole process to take at least a couple of weeks, and if everything goes well, then you can expect to get all of our models 3D printed through them in the future. :D
October Release Overview
Here we are in October, and once again we have a TON of content for you on Patreon!
This month we’re continuing with our Alien Hives and Mummified Undead releases, and we’ve also got a new Marauders Fleet for you as well. On top of that there’s some new games and expansions coming, as well as a bunch of other stuff.
Today we’ve got a truly gargantuan update for you, with a new game, writing jam results, october previews, game updates, and much more.
Let’s get to it!
The wait is finally over everyone, Warfleets: FTL is now available to the public!
When I was first approached by Austin Peasley back in 2014 about the making of a spaceship battles game, I could’ve never imagined that we’d be here 6 years later releasing a full spaceship game of our own.
The journey has been long, with many iterations of the game, and even some moments of true despair, but we’re really happy that this game is now available for download, and can’t wait to see player’s reactions to it!
For those of you that are hearing about Warfleets: FTL for the first time, this is our take on a fast and furious spaceship battles game, which offers tons of fleet customization and exciting space battles.
Players take on the roles of commanders of a fully personalized fleet, which is made up of ships, heroes and upgrades from a common set of assets, as well as special assets from one of 6 interstellar factions.
Each faction comes with its own selection of ships, heroes and upgrades, and there is also a wide selection of legendary fleets, giving players the chance to step into the shoes of legendary FTL admirals.
As always, the core rules and faction book are completely free, and they offer countless hours of explosive spaceship battles… but what if you want more?
If you support us on Patreon, you can get access to the Full Rulebook, which adds a ton of advanced rules that allow you to further customize your games, with extra missions, deployment styles, events, and much more.
The Full Rulebook also has rules that allow you to re-use widgets from other games, such as blast markers, order dice, ordnance tokens, command dials, and many more.
Here a full breakdown of what you get in the Full Rulebook:
Terrain Placement Rules
Multiple Deployment Styles
Terrain & Objective Effects
Fog of War Rules
Catastrophic Damage Rules
Order Dice Rules
Shields & Defense Tokens Rules
Scanner Ranges Rules
Rules for Planetary Control Games
Rules for Multiplayer Games
Rules for Kitchen Table Games
If you don’t have any spaceship models, you can also pick up our very own 2D and 3D models on Patreon, where we’re releasing a new fleet every month.
This month we’ve released the 2D Empire Fleet and the 3D Empire Fleet, and if you stick with us you’ll have the full set of all fleets as they’re all released.
Next month we’ll also be releasing a set of 2D space terrain with lots of asteroids fields, destroyed ships, space nebulas and more, which you can use to pretty up your table when playing both with 2D and 3D models.
Alright, this should be enough of a preview, now it’s time for you to check out the games yourself. Make sure to join our Discord Server to share pictures of your battles and provide your feedback and ideas!
Note that the Full Rulebook is going to be available exclusively on Patreon until we feel that the game is polished enough for a “final” release, at which point it will be removed and put for sale on our WargameVault store.
Writing Jam Results
A few weeks ago we ran our very first OPR Writing Jam, and finally the results are in!
The writing jam gives participants the opportunity to share their own take on the stories taking place in the OPR universe, writing a one-page story in just 48hrs based on the same single theme: INFINITE LOOP
September has really been a crazy month, we tripled the amount of different units we released for 3D printing, we’ve doubled the amount of armies we released for 2D printing, plus we’ve got 3 new games for everyone.
If you’re not a patron yet, please consider subscribing, as this is the only way we can keep the project alive. Not only do you get a ton of extra content, but also our eternal gratitude.
October Release Previews
With the month coming to an end, it’s time we take a look at what’s coming in October, and once again it’s going to be a very content packed month. :D
On the 3D models side we’re continuing with our Alien Hives and Mummified Undead releases, and for FTL we’re going to be releasing the Marauders fleet. On the games side, we’re going to be releasing the 4th chapter of Jakob’s Path, as well as Season 2 of the arena games and warband creators (Season 1 will be released in early October).
We also have 2 major game releases that are going to be revealed in October, but we don’t want to spoil the surprise yet. All we can say is that we have a new expansion for GFF in the works, and also a completely new game that is going to take us in a new direction…
Here’s everything you’ll get in October:
3D Alien Hives – Soul-Snatchers, Hive Warriors, Soul-Snatcher Lord

Mystery Expansion for GFF
New Mystery Game
Here some WIP shots of the 3D models, note that they are subject to change.
Small Game Updates
Moving on to updates for our core games, this week we’re adding a bunch of new units!
The great folks at Stonehorse Gaming have been releasing more and more AoF:R videos, with an awesome how to play video and a battle report. Now they’re also adding new tactics videos which cover all aspects of the game one by one, and are definitely worth checking out.
Three Men and a Wargame Podcast
Last but not least, we wanted to give a shoutout to the Three Men and a Wargame podcast, who were so kind to cover our September releases in full detail.
This week Wyloch’s Armory posted a great how to play Grimdark Future video on YouTube, which covers all aspects of the game and OPR as a whole.
If you’ve never played the game, or have always wondered if you’ve been missing out on something, then this video is for you. Make sure to also check out his battle report series.
Age of Fantasy: Regiments Battle Report
It’s awesome to see more and more videos being made for our games, and this week Stonehorse Gaming also released an awesome battle report for AoF: Regiments. This demo game shows off all of the basics of the game in a single battle, so it’s also perfect for players that are still trying to learn the game.
OPR Community Wiki
Did you know that OPR has an official Community Wiki now?
The wiki was created to provide a place where new players can find more information about our games, as well as find extensive miniatures libraries to know which models can be used for different units.
There are also games and faction pages that fill you in on the background stories of our games, and there are tactics pages to give you a better idea on how to play each faction.
The wiki is pretty new and still needs to be filled with a lot of content, so everyone is welcome to contribute by adding new pages, completing information on existing ones, adding miniature pictures, writing tactics, etc.
There are templates for all sorts of pages, so you just need to copy those and fill them out!
Infected Colonies are settlements that have been infected by a mysterious virus which mutates them into blood-hungry warriors. Those that have been infected are categorized into different stages, with each stage having a different effect on the mutated subject.
Nico makes really amazing models for RPGs and wargames, and if you support him on Patreon you not only get access to his full archive of models, but also get custom miniatures made by him to your liking!
For the next few months we’ll be releasing sets of his lovingly drawn Space Elves models, which come in 4 different colors and feature front and back art.
This week we also released the 3rd chapter of the Jakob’s Path narrative campaign.
This chapter contains 2 new missions, and if you support now you get all previously released chapters as well. Whilst the campaign was written with Battle Brothers vs Orcs in mind, it can be played with any other factions and whatever models you have available.
Chapter 3 – Jakob and his men return from the jungle battered by the heavy fighting, with one of their brothers in critical condition. They hope to find a victorious Khari at the landing zone, but instead will find that they are not alone…
Today we’ve got a bunch of new stuff for you, a writing jam, new grimdark models, new fantasy models, new spaceship models, a quickstart section, a game update, and even a new battle report for you to watch.
Let’s get to it!
OPR Writing Jam #1
Before we delve into all of the new goodies we got for you this month, let’s talk about the OPR Writing Jam, which is a brand new concept for us, and a bit of an experiment.
For the longest time people have been asking us for more narrative, and there are many of you in the community that have been more than happy to share your own stories and takes on the OPR universe. Since we got so many awesome and creative submissions from fans, we think that it’s a shame that only we get to read them.
So today we’re introducing the OPR Writing Jam!
The OPR writing jam is a 48hr story writing marathon, focused on writing one-page stories set in the OPR universe. We want to stress that this is about writing stories set in the OPR universe, and not to write stories based off another game’s universe and just change the names to fit within the OPR universe.
The writing jam runs from September 11th, at 8PM UK time / 3PM ET time, to September 13th, at 8PM UK time / 3PM ET time. There will be a 1 week public voting period, and then we will highlight a couple of our favourites on our website. This is just for fun, so there are no prizes or winners.
The submission process is pretty simple. At the start of the jam we will announce a theme, and then you will have 48hrs to write a 500-1000 words story set in the OPR universe. The story must fit on a single sheet, and we will be providing templates for you to use.
Starting the jam has been a very spontaneous decision, and we’re curious to see how it goes. If this is well received, then we could see ourselves having more writing jams in the future, or trying out different concepts. :)
New Alien Hives and Mummified Undead Models
This month we’ve got a ton of new 3D print models for you, so let’s start with our two new armies for Grimdark Future and Age of Fantasy.
The Alien Hives and Mummified Undead are going to be released over a period of 3 months, and each month we’ll be releasing 1 hero and 2 units for each army (~7 model each, for ~14 models total). At the end of the 3 months you can expect to have 3 heroes and 6 units for each army, and we’re also going to try and include some bigger models in there as well (monsters anyone?). This means that for just $30 you’re going to get 30+ models just in these 2 armies, plus all of the spaceship models, new games, expansions, and more!
These models are being created in collaboration with Punga Miniatures, and we’d like to thank the whole team for the amazing result: Rim, Bulat, Radmir and Guzel
The Alien Hives are being sculpted by Radmir: INSTAGRAM
The Mummified Undead are being sculpted by Bulat: INSTAGRAM
All of the renders are being done by Guzel: ARTSTATION
And of course the production is being done by Rim: WEBSITE
This is just the beginning of these two armies, and we’re looking forward to seeing more of them come out, and can’t wait to release the full armies after these 3 months. Of course by supporting us on Patreon you get a TON more content, so make sure to check out our September release overview: https://www.patreon.com/posts/41104102
Note that we are still pending on the renders for the Alien Hives hero and the second unit, and we’ll make sure to update everyone once those are released.
New Empire Fleet Models
You thought that was all for this month’s model releases? Think again!
This month we’re seeing the first FTL fleet being released, starting with the Empire Fleet. The FTL fleets are going to be released over a period of 6 months, and each month we’ll be releasing 4 models for each fleet (3 ship types +1 squadron). At the end of the 6 months you can expect to have all 24 models, plus the Full Rulebook for FTL, giving you the complete range of FTL fleets. That’s right, for just $10/month you’re not only getting all of the models for the other 2 armies, but also a new FTL fleet.
So, you love the idea of spaceship battles, you want to give FTL a try, but you don’t have any models or a 3D printer? We’ve still got you covered!
Alongside our 3D print fleets we’re also going to release a 2D print fleet every month, giving everyone a chance to play FTL. This follows the exact same system as the 3D print fleets, so you get a new fleet with 4 models each month, and you will have all of them together at the end of the 6 months. The basic 1 color version is available for just $3/month, whilst the full 2 color version is available for just $5/month.
And this is not all for you 2D print fans, because this month we’ll also have a new 2D print army for Grimdark Future coming out, which will be the Infected Colonies. But more on that later when they’re ready to be released…
New Quickstart Section
As some of you might have already noticed, we have re-designed our landing page, adding a couple of new features to make life easier. We now have a button for the news section (because some people didn’t realize we had one), as well as a button that leads straight to our monthly Patreon release highlight.
Most importantly though, we’ve added a button that leads to a new “start here” page.
This page serves to introduce new players to everything they need to know about OPR, from the fact that our games are free, to how the project is supported on patreon, to a step by step guide on getting started.
The step-by-step guide was designed to give the easiest introduction possible to our games, with just the one-page rules first, and then a series of brand new quickstart sets, which include the beginner’s guide, some pre-made army lists, as well as 2D miniature tokens and terrain. This is the absolute best way to introduce someone that’s new to wargaming to our games, and is the perfect package to run demo games or share the rules with new starters.
Then there’s even more stuff on the page. We’ve added a battle report by Wyloch’s Armory for those that would like to see the game in action, as well as links to all of our social media, community pages and the newsletter.
All in all we think that it turned out pretty great, although we might keep tweaking it as things go along. Big shout out to Perram on Discord who pushed me to actually implement this, thanks a lot!
The Orc Marauders have always been a very “controversial” faction in Grimdark Future. They’re one of the most played factions out there, but also one of the hardest to play right. In the hands of the right player, and with the right conditions, they can be absolutely brutal, however for a lot of players they just end up being frustrating because they are much harder to play than they look.
After a lot of discussion we’re decided to take a couple of small steps to address this issue, and hopefully give players the tools that they need to feel that they can be more competitive when playing Orc Marauders. This is not a complete overhaul of the army, but instead just a couple of tweaks to tip the scales.
Here’s the full changes:
Mechanics and Shamans now have access to upgrade list B
Fixed cost of Ultra Armor on list C
Heroes can now take Jetpacks
Added new special rule SHOOT!
Lowered cost of WAR! and Mad Doctor
Specialist Orcs and Orc Pirates now have Relentless
Modified weapons and upgrades for Specialist Orcs and Orc Pirates
Mini Helicopters now have Impact(3) as an upgrade
Most Vehicles can be upgraded with Relentless
Condensed multiple buggy types into a Combat Kart
We hope that these small changes allow players to play with the army in new and interesting ways, and hopefully be able to mitigate some of the army’s weaknesses, whilst still maintaining that core Orc Marauders identity.
Age of Fantasy Battle Report and Review (German)
Finally this week we were very delighted when we found out that German channel Bier und Brezel Tabletop filmed a full battle report and provided an in-depth review of Age of Fantasy.
The battle report is very well filmed, and there is great commentary that explains everything that’s happening in detail, so this also serves as a great “how to play” video as well. The review section is also really great, going over the pros and cons of the system, and it’s great to see someone that truly understands the strengths of the system make a review for it.
For those of you that don’t speak German you can watch the video with YouTube’s auto-translated captions, although we can’t vouch for the quality of the translation. :D
Today we’ve got the bi-annual community survey for you, info about the online point calculator beta, a grimdark future batrep, as well as lots of other info about new releases.
Let’s get to it!
Every 6 months we like to take give everyone in our community a chance to provide some feedback on our project via an online survey (see the last survey results here), and it seems like it’s about time again.
This is still a beta, and currently there are only point costs for GF/GFF, but we’re working on improving the app as well as adding in AoF/AoFS. Please provide us with any and all feedback possible, it really helps!
Grimdark Future Battle Report
It’s been a very long time since we posted a batrep, but the amazing Wyloch has finally come around and made another video, this time featuring a 2500pts match of Robot Legions vs High Elf Fleets.
If you’ve never heard of him before, make sure to check out his Grimdark Future Batrep Playlist, with 12 awesome battle reports featuring all sorts of armies and game modes.
Finally we wanted to remind everyone that the current forum is going to be deleted at the end of the month, and we’re going to be reverting to the old forum. Make sure to save all your stuff and transfer it from one forum to the other before it gets lost in the void!
Once the month is over we’ll be doing the switch, which will take some time to get the correct URL to be working and have the ads removed, but after that it should run smoothly again. :)
That’s it for today, once again lots of stuff! Make sure to answer the community survey, and we’ll be happy to share the results with you next week.
Anyone will be able to submit a game, and you can work alone or in teams. When the jam is over everyone will be able to judge the games, and then we will highlight a few of our favourite games on the OPR website.
There is no winner or prize, it’s all just for fun!
We really want to make this something special, and the more people join the better, so spread the news wherever you can and let’s make miniature game jams a thing. :D
Dwarf Troops Released
Last month we released some mighty Dwarf Lords, so this month it’s time for us to release troops that they can lead into battle!
The Dwarves are known across Tyria for their prowess in battle and lack of fear when faced with enemies twice their height, and these warriors are rightly respected by their enemies. These models are modular and come with 5 different head designs, 5 different body designs, 3 different weapons and a shield.
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.
Machine Cult Defilers
Today we’re releasing a new army from Grimdark Future, the Machine Cult Defilers.
Machine Cult Defilers are a twisted faction of humans that have fused with machines to become brain-dead killers that know no mercy. They wage war to serve their machine-gods in their quest to eradicate the Sirius sector of all biological life.
We’ve also used this update as a chance to review the Feudal Guard army, adding some new units and re-working from of the existing ones to be more in line with the HDF.
Today we have just a small update to the tournament guides, as well as a couple of small army updates for Grimdark Future.
Added section on stacking modifiers from special rules and spells
High Elf Fleets
High Seers can’t upgrade to Psychic(3) anymore
Human Defense Force
Re-worked the Ogre Squads Heavy SMGs
Re-worked melee upgrades for Battlesuit Captains
Heavy Stealth Suits now have Tough(12) and re-worked Stealth Drones
Tide Titans now have Tough(18)
Surge Titans now come with Pulse Cannons Equipped
Grimdark Future Community Campaign
To combat quarantine loneliness and lack of wargaming we started a Grimdark Future community campaign on the forum: The Battle for Tarkanis.
The campaign is open for anyone to join, and we use the forum thread to track armies, share battle reports and more. You can take part in the campaign from home or play with us online using our Discord server and Roll20 tables.
The campaign is played using the Grimdark Future Campaign Rules, and it will run for 2 weeks until the 26th of April, after which we see who wins!
AoFS Solo Battle Report
Been a while since we last shared a battle report, so here is a new Age of Fantasy Skirmish solo battle report by Sad and Lonely Gamer, this time featuring a brutal 250pts battle of Sky-City Dwarves vs Disciples of War.
Last week we posted a teaser, this week we posted a teaser… so maybe next week we’ll post yet another teaser?
That’s it for today, make sure to sign up for the game jam and tell everyone about it, and we hope you enjoy the new miniatures and armies too. :)
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: firstname.lastname@example.org
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!
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.
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 Wargamerhave 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!
