v2.50 Spells Updates + New Videos

Game Update, Video Content, Web Comics

Hi everyone,

This week we’ve only got a small update for you, as we’ve just finalized changes to the v2.50 spell lists.

As part of an effort to make casters a little better, all buff/debuff spells are now cast on 2 units within range, instead of only 1. Attack spells have also been buffed a bit, and spells that deal as many hits as models in the target have now been modified to be a little less brutal.

Finally, we’ve also removed all of the “free action”, “restore 1 model” and “move terrain” spells, and replaced them with new spells that are less problematic. In order to make all of these changes work, we’ve also slightly raised the cost of all casters, by +5pts for level 1 casters, and +10pts for level 2 casters.

Community Survey Results

Community Survey, Physical Minis, Video Content, Web Comics

Hi everyone,

This past week we ran our bi-annual community survey, and finally the results are in. Once again the survey has grown by a lot, with 900+ responses, and 400+ comments for us to read!

There’s lots of stuff to go through, so we’ll try to keep this as brief as possible.

Which of these game ideas are you most interested in?

The results here are very similar to our last survey, with mech combat, small-scale games, and skirmish adventure games taking the lead. Good thing that we’re working on all of these already. :)

Which of the OPR games do you play?

Compared to our last poll, it’s interesting to see that as our audience has grown, the number of FTL players has remained about the same. Later this year we’re going to make some big updates to FTL, which will hopefully open the game up to a bigger audience.

How would you like to learn about OPR lore?

In our last poll there was no option for faction guides, and boy are we glad we added it. Whilst the demand for almost everything has stayed the same, faction guides has now become the most popular choice amongst our fans. Realistically, it’s going to take at least 6-12 months before we can start releasing faction guides on a regular basis, but it’s good to see that there’s interest in them.

Do you play using OPR miniatures?

It’s very interesting to see that ~70% of players actually play using OPR miniatures, as we would have expected that number to be much lower until recently. This gives us confidence that our audience responds well to our minis, and that we can keep making players happy with them.

Which Grimdark Future armies do you play?

The player numbers for the different factions have stayed more or less the same as usual, but now with the addition of the Jackals and Eternal Dynasty, which have a solid number of players. As we release more models for different armies, we expect those to go up in ranking as well.

Which Age of Fantasy armies do you play?

Here we have essentially the same results as above, however it seems that Saurians got even more players than before, remaining our most popular faction of all time (which makes sense, because they’re awesome).

Which Warfleets: FTL factions do you play?

FTL fleet numbers have stayed about the same, however Progenitors have now overtaken Xenos in popularity, and the number of players using “Other” fleets has almost doubled (very curious).

Which of these community tools are you interested in?

This was a new question on the poll, and it’s a very interesting result, because we didn’t expect the OPR Wiki to be such a popular choice amongst players. The current wiki is frankly sub-par, and we’re planning on staring a completely new wiki, on a better platform, and with much more content in the future.

Which OPR merch would you be interested in?

Another new question on the poll, and one that we were very curious about. We used to have a merch store a few years back, but decided to shut it down as it didn’t get a lot of traffic. Seeing that 60% of our audience might be interested in buying some merch is very cool, and as we produce more and more cool art, we think merch could be a great opportunity to spread some of the awesomeness around.

Do you have any suggestions for things we should do with OPR (new games, armies, features, etc.)?

Alright, this is the big one. As you can imagine, with over 400 messages, it’s impossible for us to cover everything, but here’s some of the most important takeaways for this survey.

  • Communication: There are still a ton of players that asked for content we already make, which means that our communication is still not that great. We are currently in the process of doing a big website update, which should go live in the next 9-18 months, and which should hopefully resolve a lot of these questions.
  • Example Army Lists: We got a ton of people asking for us to provide some examples of army lists for each army, so that they can get into the game quicker. This is going to be one of those things that will be included as part of our OPR Wiki re-building, giving players a single place to find pre-made army lists.
  • Player Finder: Many of you have asked for a player finder, which clearly shows us that nobody uses the forum, because we have a game finder board there. We’re currently thinking about how a finder system could be implemented, and it might come with the new website, but no promises.
  • Starter Sets: There were many requests for 3D print or physical starter sets, which is something that we’ve been thinking about for a while, and are looking for a good way to implement. Seeing so many people ask for it is definitely giving us motivation to push it further.
  • More Game Content: Lots of players asked for more campaigns, mission packs, and solo/coop games. We’re currently working on all of those, it’s just taking longer to develop than we expected. Once we’ve got the production pipeline well oiled, then we’ll be churning out lots of game content on the regular.
  • Volunteers Program: This was unexpected, but tons of you asked for some sort of volunteers program, in order to help spread the word about OPR games. We’ve never done something like this, but we’ll look into it, and see what sort of tools we can provide to help people run demos and recruit new players.
  • Organized Events Support: Tying into the previous point, there were many comments about providing support for organized events, be it tournaments or otherwise. This is definitely something that we want to support, and are working on some ways to provide event kits and prizes.

The first half of 2022 has been a wild ride for OPR, the project has been growing at an incredible pace, doubling in supporter numbers, which has been both great and problematic. As many of you know, I have been running this project by myself for the last 8 years, and it’s been kind of hard to manage this incredible growth all by myself.

In order to make sure that I can keep expanding OPR to achieve all of these things you’re hoping for, I’ve been growing the team by a lot over the last six months, which has temporarily slowed down the production of many things. That being said, having a bigger team, with members that can take care of different things independently, means that now we’re getting back into gear to fulfill all of our promises.

If everything goes well, there are a ton of things you can look forward to in 2022, such as new games, expansions, short stories, world guides, and of course lots of awesome miniatures. Thank you everyone for your continuous support, none of this would be possible without you, and we’re all working extremely hard to hopefully make you proud! :)


New Physical Minis Discount

As you know, we always try to provide more value for our supporters, and today is one of those days. :)

Over the last 6 months many Patrons kept asking us if it would be possible to have a discount for our physical models on Only-Games, and finally we have an answer!

Starting today all tiers will get a 5% discount code every month, which can be used unlimited times per month. If you’re already a Tier 1 patron, grab it here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/60631647

Due to how print-on-demand production works, handing out discount codes is not as straight forward as with digital products, so this is a trial run for us. If this goes well, and the discount code doesn’t cause any issues, then we’ll keep the discount code around (plus maybe add a special 10% discount for stretch goal months).

This is a super quick survey that only takes a few minutes to fill in, and we’ll be keeping it open for a week, with the results being revealed to the public in next week’s post.

Sirius Business + June Release Coming!

2D Print, 3D Print, New Release, Physical Minis, Video Content, Web Comics

Hi everyone,

June has just started, and it’s going to be another great month for OPR fans. :)

First off, we’ve got a new webcomic for you, which will serve as a fun introduction to the lore of the Grimdark Future universe for all the uninitiated. Then we’ve got the June Patreon release, with tons of new missions, models, and much more. Finally, we’ve got a bunch of new battle reports for you.

Let’s get to it!


Sirius Business – S01 Introduction

This month we’re kicking off our first ever web comic, with Sirius Business!

Sirius Business follows the adventures of Spoon & Tröt as they explore the Sirius Sector and beyond, and was created by the amazing Pierre Mortel. Today we’ve got a little teaser for you, and the plan is to post a new comic every week, until the season is over. After that, who knows what might come next…

But now, behold, the first glimpse at Sirius Business!


June Patreon Release

This month we’ve got the last wave of Saurians as well as more models for our new Jackals faction. On top of that we’ve also got a new welcome pack, terrain, bases, game aids, rulebooks, and much much more. :)

This project was made by gamers for gamers, and can only exist thanks to the support of our awesome community. Please consider subscribing on Patreon, where you’ll get tons of extra games, models and more.

Thank you for your support!


New Mission Packs

The latest mission pack has been released on Patreon, with 8 brand new missions:

  • Grimdark Future – The Bale Eye Opens + Psychic Nightmare
  • GF: Firefight – Jungle Hunt + Frozen Wasteland
  • Age of Fantasy – Monuments Rise + Forbidden Forest
  • AoF: Skirmish – Tides of Mist + Ring of Fire

These missions are focused on fun new ways to play, with interesting objectives and special rules to spice things up. We release new missions every month, so make sure to stick around so that you don’t miss any.

Note that whilst the missions are designed for each specific game, you can totally play them with the rules for any other game (with slight adjustments). This means that you have even more missions to play each month!


New 2D Minis Released

The new Beastmen and Eternal Dynasty sets are available on Patreon.

These sets feature a ton of minis with front and back views in two different color schemes, as well as black & white. They also include black border versions of the minis, plus VTT tokens to play online.


New Miniatures on Only-Games

Don’t care for 2D printing or 3D printing? Well then we’ve got you covered, because now all of the minis we released in April have been uploaded to our Only-Games Store.


Follow us on Instagram!

Make sure to follow OPR on Instagram to see tons of pictures and videos of our painted miniatures: https://www.instagram.com/onepagerules/

Game Jam Results + v2.50 Update

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

Hi everyone,

Two weeks ago we ran our 5th bi-annual game jam, which was awesome. It was great to see the discord chat buzzing with ideas, and everyone being creative, playtesting, and generally talking game design.

Congratulations to the top 3 rated games:

  1. Silent, But Deadly by MetalOstrich
  2. Scourge of the Seven by Baarfa
  3. VAMPIRE: Gehenna Wars by JetGet

See all submissions here: https://itch.io/jam/oprgj5/entries

With that being said, we have decided that we’re going to stop doing the game jams, and instead focus on running 3 writing jams per year, instead of only 2 per year. We’d like to thank everyone that has been participating in our game jams, and hope to see you as part of our writing jams in the future. :)

We’ll be back with the 5th edition of the writing jam in August, and you can sign up here!


v2.50 Update (New Gang + War Clans)

Today we’ve updated the OPR WebApp with the Nomads Gang as well as the Tyrants Clan, Scions Clan, Savage Clan and the Brood Clan. With this, every list we have has now been adapted to v2.50! :)

So, what does this mean for us now?

The next step is for us to do a big review of the army lists in general, as well as of the core rules, fixing any issues reported by the community, as well as improving the base games. Additionally, we are going to focus on the development of essential WebApp features that are necessary for it to come out of beta.

Once all of that is done, the beta will officially be over, and things will go back to normal.

For those of you that haven’t been with us since before the beta, going back to normal means that there will only be one source for the army books again (the OPR WebApp), that the version numbers will go back to their original sequence (instead of using v2.50), and that army updates will be less frequent and fully documented via change logs on our website (in news posts just like this one).

This has been a long journey, and we are eager to get to the end of it! :D


MMF – Models Removed Soon

At the end of the month we’re going to permanently archive some of our oldest models on MMF, which don’t reflect our vision of OPR models anymore. If you want to buy the models, make sure to get them before the 31st of May!

The models are only going to be archived on MMF, so don’t worry, this means that if you bought the models, they will stay in your MMF library forever. The only thing that’s changing is that the models won’t be available for purchase anymore.

Here are the models that will be archived:

  • All Dwarf models (including Bases and Game Aids)
  • All Battle Sisters models (including Bases and Game Aids)
  • All of the Great Daemon models

Some of these models (such as the Bases and Game Aids) might come back in the future once we re-visit those armies, but otherwise we’re not planning on bringing them back.

Havoc War Clans v2.50 + Game Jam Voting

Game Update, Video Content, Game Jam

Hi everyone,

Last week we released the Hive City Gangs into v2.50, and this week it’s time to finally release the now re-named Havoc War Clans into v2.50 as well!

The changes we made are similar to the ones from last week, building the lists primarily for AoF and then having them auto-converted into AoFS, changing the quality values of units, consolidating heroes into a single champion profile, tweaking hero buffs, etc.

Due to time restrictions, this week we were only able to release the original 6 factions, but next week we should be able to release the remaining factions, plus some new war clans as well.

Check them out: https://webapp.onepagerules.com/game-systems/age-of-fantasy-skirmish


Game Jam #5 – Vote Now!

Last weekend we ran the fifth OPR game jam, and it was a blast. Now it’s time for everyone to check out the games that came out of it, and vote for your favorites!

Vote here: https://itch.io/jam/oprgj5/entries

We’d like to thank everyone that participated, and wish everyone good luck. :)

Hive City Gangs v2.50 + MMF Last Chance Models

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

Hi everyone,

In just a few hours it’s time for the next game jam already, so make sure to sign up!

The OPR Game Jam is a 48hr game making marathon, focused on creating one-page miniatures games. The game jam runs from May 13th, at 8PM UK time / 3PM ET time, to May 15th, at 8PM UK time / 3PM ET time.

Anyone can submit a game, and you may work alone or in teams. The games will then be judged by the public, and then we will highlight the top 3 voted games on the OPR website. There is no winner or prize, it’s all just for fun!

Sign up for the game jam here (it’s free): https://itch.io/jam/oprgj5


Hive City Gangs v2.50 Available Now

At long last, the Hive City Gangs join the v2.50 beta!

Whilst the gangs have mostly remained the same as you know and love, there have also been some important chases to bring them more in line with the new beta balancing.

To help us with the balancing, we have actually primarily built them as GF lists, which are then auto-translated to GFF like every other army. This helps us ensure that they are treated equally, and also opens up the potential for having the gangs in GF at some point in the future (if players are interested).

Here are the most noticeable changes:

  • Rookies/Gangers are now Quality 5+ / Defense 5+ and Veterans are Quality 4+ / Defense 5+
  • Some units have been consolidated into the Champion profile
  • Hero buffs have been tweaked to be more in line with other v2.50 armies
  • Rookies and Gangers are now divided into a melee profile and a shooting profile
  • Veterans now have the Relentless special rule
  • Upgrade lists have been tweaked to be more specialized between units types
  • Weapons have been tweaked to reflect general v2.50 changes
  • Specialists have been tweaked to have more interesting special rules
  • Ogres have now been split into their own gang with unit tweaks

On paper this seems like a lot of changes, but in practice it’s mostly just shuffling things around and making sure they are in line with v2.50 changes. If you were already playing with Hive City Gangs before, you can expect everything to feel about the same, with a little more balance. :)

Jackals Preview + New Videos

Game Update, Video Content

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve updated the OPR WebApp with a new Grimdark Future army: the Jackals!

But who exactly are they?

“Jackals are a species of nomadic humanoid canines, which trade and scavenge for scrap to survive. Whilst their technology is not as advanced as that of other factions, they are clever and resourceful, making them formidable fighters.

In the far corner of the Sirius sector, large quantities of rare minerals were detected on a small arid planet known as Adusta. Many factions sent mining ships to harvest the precious resource, but couldn’t get through its thick asteroid belt, and crash-landed on the planet.

The Jackals were tribes in the early stages of their evolution when they found a crashed Robot Legions ship. This discovery led to a technological revolution for them, which helped them spread throughout the planet, and find more and more crashed ships which they turned into cities and trading posts.

Now the Jackals wander their planet and hitchhike through the galaxy, seeking adventure and knowledge alike.”

Some of you might recognize the Jackals from the TAO Coalition list, where they used to belong. We felt that the Jackals deserved some more love, so they have been removed from the TAO Coalition, and have been given their own army (but don’t worry, you can still ally them if you want).

Making them their own army has allowed us to really expand on them, giving them four times as many units, and adding a huge array of weapon options. The old Locusts from the TAO Coalition have also been bundled in with them, and have gotten some cool weapon options too. Oh, and adding more units also means that now the Jackals have access to two giant monsters, and even a titan… epic stuff. :D

If this got you excited and you’re looking for some models to play with them, we’ve got you covered. If you’ve got a 3D printer, then tune in to our Patreon starting in May to get the Jackals (and much more), or if you want to buy the physical models check out our Only-Games starting in June.

We’re very excited about this new army, and can’t wait to see it in people’s hands!
