New Armies, Paper Minis + More!

2D Print, Collaboration, Game Update, New Release, Painting Competition, Video Content

Hi everyone,

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!


New Armies

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!

New MyMiniFactory Store

We’re really excited to announce that we’ve opened our new store on MyMiniFactory, and our models are available for purchase there: https://www.myminifactory.com/users/onepagerules

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!


Pre-Supported Models Available

All of our September models and now available fully pre-supported on our brand new MyMiniFactory store: https://www.myminifactory.com/users/onepagerules

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:

What’s in the set:

Best regards from Asgard Rising team!

***************


New Patreon Stretch Goals

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!


Game Updates

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:

Prime Brothers

  • 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)

Robot Legions

  • Added new units: Destroyer Robot Snakes, Tri-Scorpion Pistoleer, Heavy Annihilator
  • Tripod Robots can be updated with new weapons

Elven Jesters

  • Heroes can now be upgraded with Jetbikes

Battle Reports

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… ;)

Happy Wargaming!

Print-on-Demand Test, New Releases + Videos

2D Print, 3D Print, New Release, Painting Competition, Video Content

Hi everyone,

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


Print-on-Demand Test

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.

Here is how this works:

  • Send an e-mail to onepageanon@gmail.com with the title POD Test
  • 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.

Check out the full October release overview here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/42209718


October Painting Competition

Don’t forget that this month we’re running our very first painting competition!

All you need to do is paint 1 model from our September release and share a high resolution picture of it on one of our social media channels:

  • OPR Community on Facebook
  • Instagram with #onepagerules
  • Twitter with @onepagerules
  • Discord with @onepageanon

DEADLINE: OCTOBER 15th 

The community will vote for the best looking submission, and the winner will get one FREE month on Patreon at Tier 3 (handled via refund).

The miniatures should be painted by you, no commissions allowed. By entering the contest you give OPR permission to share the submitted pictures on our social media platforms.

Happy Painting!

Note: Since this is the first time we’re running something like this it might get a bit weird and we might have to adjust things in the future, but overall it should be fun!


Marauder Fleet Releases

This month is really awesome for FTL releases, because we’ve got the new Marauders Fleet available for you, and in the coming weeks we’ll also be releasing some space terrain!

Warfleets: FTL + Much More!

3D Print, Collaboration, Game Update, New Release, Video Content, Writing Jam

Hi everyone,

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!


Warfleets: FTL

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
  • Extra Missions
  • Boarding Actions
  • Random Events
  • Battlefield Phenomena
  • 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!

Get the game here: https://onepagerules.com/portfolio/warfleets-ftl/

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

Check out all submissions here: https://itch.io/jam/oprwj1/entries

Check out the voting results here: https://itch.io/jam/oprwj1/results

All of the submissions were really awesome to read, and we want to highlight a couple of our favorite ones here.

  • A Dull Ache by Joe Fonseca – Trooper Hark of the Human Defense Force faces the reality of war on a once beautiful planet.
  • Pain of Victory by Grim – Stuck in a time loop, Kr’tchikr Steelbiter must fight tooth and nail to break the cycle and survive the battle with his litter-compatriots.
  • Hunt by Matteo Cantelmi – Follow a cohort of Machine Cult Infiltrators as they track down a rebel leader on a war-torn world.

September Releases – Last Chance!

Before we continue, we wanted to remind everyone that if you want to get all of the amazing stuff from the September releases, then it’s best you join now and download everything before it is removed.

Check out all of the content you get here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/41104102

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

Dwarf Army Bundle Released

Over the past 6 months we’ve released a full Dwarf Army in collaboration with Kyoushuneko Miniatures, which came out looking pretty damn awesome.

Whilst we had single units available for sale until now, some players asked us if it was possible to get the entire army at once, and well… your wish is our command!

The complete Dwarf Army is now available for sale as a bundle with a hefty 20% discount, and if you’re also a patron at Tier 3, then you will get an additional 20% discount on top!

Get the full army here: https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-model-collections/dwarf-army-bundle


Age of Fantasy: Regiment Videos

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.

Check them out here: https://threemenandawargame.podbean.com/e/whats-in-the-box-1600916529/


That’s it for today, but don’t worry, just because we released FTL today doesn’t mean we’re done making games, so keep your eyes peeled for more stuff that’s on the horizon. ;)

Happy Wargaming!

How to Play Grimdark Future

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.

Check it out here: https://onepagerules.fandom.com/

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!

Join our Discord for more help on contributing: https://discord.gg/djBydgk

New September Models Revealed

After a small delay this week we’ve finally been able to reveal the missing models from the Alien Hives, and boy oh boy did they turn out great!

First up we’ve got the Prime Warrior, a massive hero that commands his army with a heavy hand. He’s armed with a deadly bio-gun, and has a spike on his head to show his prowess.

Then we’ve got the Shooter Grunts, that come in a pack of 3, with bio-guns coming straight out of their terrifying mouths, ready to liquify their enemies with acid bile.

With these models the full lineup of September releases has been revealed, so make sure to grab all of them (and much much more) for just $10 before the end of the month!

See the full list of what you get here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/41104102


Jakob’s Path: Chapters 1-3

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…

Get the chapter here: https://www.patreon.com/onepagerules 


OPR on Instagram

After much deliberation we’ve decided to create an Instagram profile for OPR, where we will share lots of pictures of our newly released content, as well as sneak previews in the stories.

In order to boost our reach we’re also considering doing some giveaways on Instagram, so make sure to follow us now to get more news about that when it happens!

How to Play Age of Fantasy: Regiments

This week Stonehorse Gaming released a new video, explaining how to play Age of Fantasy: Regiments in a simple and concise manner (and with some great models to boot).

Check it out if you haven’t had a chance to play our games yet, and want to see them in action!


That’s it for today, a pretty quick update. We’re looking forward to reading your writing jam stories, and can’t wait to see what crazy ideas you come up with for the theme: INFINITE LOOP.

Happy Wargaming!

September Releases, Writing Jam, Quickstart Section and More

2D Print, 3D Print, Game Update, Video Content, Writing Jam

Hi everyone,

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.

Sign up for the jam here (it’s free): https://itch.io/jam/oprwj1

Here is an example submission to get a better idea: https://onepagerules.itch.io/sons-of-the-god-king-example

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.

These models were made in collaboration with Danny Cyanide, who is going to make all FTL fleets for us. Check out his stuff here: https://cults3d.com/en/users/danny_cyanide

We’re really happy to be working with Danny, and can’t wait to see where else this collaboration could take us after FTL (maybe some nice mechs? who knows…).

New Empire Fleet (Again?)

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.

Read more about the release here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/41155422

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!

Orc Marauders Update

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


That’s it for this week, make sure to sign up for the OPR Writing Jam!

Happy Wargaming!

Community Survey, Online Point Calculator, Battle Report + More

3D Print, Community Survey, Video Content

Hi everyone,

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!


Community Survey

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.

Please take a moment to fill it out here: https://forms.gle/yWEw2q3PLgr3KLcFA

The survey will run for one week, and then we will post the results here again. :)


Online Point Calculator (BETA)

We’ve been talking about providing a web-based version of our point calculators for far too long, but we’re happy to be able to finally actually release the first beta!

The online point calculator allows you to create custom units quickly and with ease, taking away all the tedious math so that you can get creative ASAP.

Check it out: http://pointcalc.onepagerules.com/ 

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.


Vile Rattus Kickstarter

The Vile Rattus Kickstarter Campaign by ThatEvilOne is coming along very nicely, funding in just 30 minutes and already having reached a couple of stretch goals!

Check it out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thatevilone/cult-of-vile-rattus-a-cheese-stealer-cult

He already posted a couple of updates with new model previews, as well as confirming that pre-supported files will be provided, which sounds pretty damn good. :)


Power Armor Dwarves Released

Are you looking to add some more OOMPH to your dwarf army? Boy do we have something for you!

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

Dwarf Power Suits are the guardians of the dwarf forces, battling tirelessly to protect their brethren. They are an unstoppable force almost impervious to damage. 

These models come with 3 different head designs, 6 different body designs and 3 different hammer designs.

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.

Free Jetpack Sisters on Thingiverse

Another week, another free model release on Thingiverse, this time with the gorgeous Jetpack Sisters and their wings, really a stunning model we’re happy to have in our range. :D

Check it out: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4542225

Grimdark Future: Firefight available on WargameVault

Continuing with our uploads of games on WargameVault, this week we’ve released GFF on there.

The rulebook is still much cheaper to get directly on Patreon, however we are making it available elsewhere for those that can’t become patrons due to different restrictions.

Get the rulebook by clicking HERE.


Forum Switch Incoming

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.

Happy Wargaming!

Open Call for Writers, New Collaboration and More

3D Print, Collaboration, Video Content

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!
