Hi everyone,

Today we’re really excited to bring you some news about how the new merch store is developing, as well as the release of Wave 3!


Black Friday / Cyber Monday

Since we’ve had a lot of people asking if we’d be doing any special deals for Black Friday / Cyber Monday let’s get this out of the way first. :D

Use promo code CYBER2019 to get 30% off anything in our store:

*** Promo code valid until December 12th ***

So far we’ve been getting some good feedback regarding the merch store so far, and have already had our first sales, so with this deal we hope to make it just that much sweeter for you to get OPR merch.

Some players also asked us if we could add more color options for the merch and we naturally obliged, so you now have a much wider variety of color options to choose from in the store.

Merch Survey and Battle Sisters

Firefight, Grimdark Future, Merch, Quickplay Armies

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got two long awaited updates for you, delivering on an old promise from the Community Survey as well as updating an old favorite army to reach it’s full potential!


OPR Merch Survey

This has been a long time coming, but we’re please to announce that finally official OPR merch is going to be available in the near future. :D

We’ve decided to use Teespring as our main platform to produce various custom printed items, and we couldn’t be more excited at the idea of seeing our awesome illustrations on t-shirts, hoodies, posters, mugs or whatever else.

Because at the end of the day this merch is made for our fans, we’re going to put the power in your own hands by giving you a choice of what items and designs are going to be made available in our Teespring store.

We have 23 designs for each game, and are looking of featuring at least 4 designs per game at the beginning, though hopefully we’ll be able to put together more of them.

So, are you ready to pick your favorites?

Take the survey here (it’s only 4 questions): https://forms.gle/pRm8gMXrmDNsYbXNA

Right now we’re trying to have everything ready as soon as possible so that you can get some cool OPR merch delivered by Christmas, but no promises.


The Battle Sisters

With the release of some awesome new Battle Sisters models we thought it’s about time to give the Battle Sisters the spotlight that they deserve!

For those of you new to the Grimdark Future lore, here are the basics:

The Battle Sisters are a splinter faction of the Battle Brothers, which follow the lead of their own god-queen instead of the conservative god-king.

Once the god-king declared women to be unfit to fight the god-queen decided that she had enough and took off to start her own army of brave warriors, copying the technology of the Battle Brothers, even if not always perfectly.

Whilst this means that they lack a little bit in toughness it doesn’t make them any less fierce when it comes to war, and in some ways they greatly outshine the Battle Brothers.

Grimdark-Sisters-2.png

Latest Update

To reflect this piece of the lore we’ve recently updated the Battle Sisters, adding in a ton of new units that are using similar technology to that of the Battle Brothers.

In the new Battle Sisters army books you will find rules for Battle Sisters in Destroyer Armor and on Combat Bikes, as well as a new Psychic with her own powerful spells.

We’ve also added in some more goodies with new weapons for most units, as well as one of their favorite toys: the Flamethrower Sniper Rifle. :D

With all of these rules improvements and custom modelling opportunities there’s never been a better time to start playing Battle Sisters.

Quickplay Armies

Quickplay Armies are pre-made army lists designed to be ready to play out of the box, without the need to count point costs or create your own lists. They are the perfect thing to dip your toes into new armies and see if you like them!

Are you hot for the Battle Sisters already? Well then we’ve got a cool mashup for you this week, allowing you to immediately get started and play out one of the oldest conflicts in the Grimdark Future lore with these new Quickplay Armies.

This week’s Quickplay Armies: Battle Sisters vs Battle Brothers

Battle Sisters

  • 1x High Sister w/ Blind Faith, Pistol & Energy Sword
  • 10x Battle Sisters w/ 1x Flamethrower, 1x Fusion Rifle & Sacred Banner
  • 5x Assault Sisters w/ 1x Plasma Pistol & Energy Sword
  • 5x Fanatic Sisters w/ Shock Whips
  • 3x Flagellants
  • 1x Assault Walker w/ Walker Sawblades

Battle Brothers

  • 1x Captain w/ Destroyer Armor, Storm Rifle & Energy Sword
  • 5x Battle Brothers
  • 5x Battle Brothers
  • 1x Attack Walker & Heavy Minigun

The Battle Sisters in this set focus on a variety of short-range to mid-range infantry units supported by a dangerous Assault Walker. The list comes with a High Sister that can boost her unit with Blind Faith, as well as crazed Fanatic Sisters that rush into battle and can deal tremendous damage with their Heavy Chainsaw Swords.

The Battle Brothers on the other side focus on a simple setup of Battle Brothers that can use their versatility to hold their own both at range and in melee. The list comes with a Captain in Destroyer Armor that can Ambush behind enemy lines, as well as a powerful Attack Walker that mows down enemies with its Heavy Minigun.


That’s it for today, hope this update gave you all the inspiration you needed to start a new Battle Sisters army or dust off your old collection. :)

Happy Wargaming!

Ossified Undead Join The Battle!

Age of Fantasy, Game Update, Quickplay Armies, Skirmish

Hi everyone,

Today we’re excited to bring you a new army for Age of Fantasy, as well as some new Quickplay Armies for you to give them a try!


Ossified Undead

The Ossified Undead are a bunch of crazed mutated skeletons that were constructed by cursed necromancers that are seeking revenge from their old vampire lord allies.

Basically at some point the vampire lords used to fight alongside these necromancers in order to conquer Tyria, but once the fighting was over they were too greedy to give up some of their new land.

This lead them to magically mutated the necromancers into skeletons, who didn’t take well to their new predicament (go figure).

In retaliation they used dark magic to put together new skeleton warriors from the remains of their fallen brethren, and are now seeking to destroy the vampiric undead.

Gameplay wise the army is extremely resiliant, with all units having the Regeneration rule, however it’s also very sluggish, with all units having the Slow rule.

Overall expect to have a much more reliable force than other undead armies, with some interesting heroes and monsters.

Quickplay Armies

Quickplay Armies are pre-made army lists designed to be ready to play out of the box, without the need to count point costs or create your own lists. They are the perfect thing to dip your toes into new armies and see if you like them!

To give your new Ossified Undead a try we’re bringing you a set of Quickplay Armies that reflect the slaughter that awaits those that stand in their path. This is a great battle as both forces are highly resilient, so you’ll have to bring your best game in order to kill your enemies as fast as you can.

This week’s Quickplay Armies: Ossified Undead vs Ogres

Ossified Undead

  • 1x Bone Master w/ Wizard(3) & Headhunter Trophies
  • 10x Guardians w/ Spears, 1x Soul Blade & Command Group
  • 3x Stalkers w/ 2x Falchions
  • 2x Skeleton Harbinger Horrors

Ogres

  • 1x Warchief w/ 2x Hand Weapons
  • 6x Ogres
  • 2x Shooters
  • 1x Cannon Chariot

The Ossified Undead in this set focus on a powerful hero that is protected by a small defensive force. The list comes with a Bone Master that can give friendly units Poison in melee to deal tons of hits, as well as deadly Stalkers that can adapt to every combat situation with their Combat Stance ability.

The Ogres on the other side focus on a solid battle line of Ogre troops, backed up by utterly destructive ranged units. The list comes with a terrifying Warchief that can dish out lots of damage with its 2x Hand Weapons, as well as a Cannon Chariot that can blow up even the strongest units from across the table.

Fantasy-Ogres


That’s it for today, hope you enjoy this new army. Next week we’ll be back with more news regarding the Wave 3 updates.

Happy Wargaming!

This week we’re bringing you a set of Quickplay Armies that focus on the endless clashes between the High Elf Fleets and the Dark Elf Raiders. Ever since the great machine war the Dark Elf Raiders have been looking for revenge for being abandoned, and with this set they can finally do so. :D

This week’s Quickplay Armies: High Elf Fleets vs Dark Elf Raiders

High Elf Fleets

  • 1x Elven King + Banshee Helmet & Energy Sword
  • 5x Banshee Squad + 2x Mirror Swords
  • 1x Heavy Jetbike
  • 1x Anti-Gravity Tank + Shard Cannon

Dark Elf Raiders

  • 1x Dark Lord + Barb Pistol & Energy Sword
  • 5x Nightmares
  • 5x Winged Warriors
  • 5x Hoverboard Riders
  • 1x Transport Bike

The High Elf Fleets in this set focus on a small force of elite melee fighters backed up by powerful tank support. The list comes with a Banshee Squad that uses Fear to gain an advantage in melee, as well as an Anti-Gravity Tank that boasts heavy armor and anti-infantry weapons.

The Dark Elf Raiders on the other side focus on a variety of units, some that fight on land, some that hover above the ground and some that can even fly. The list comes with Winged Warriors that can spray tons of bullets down range, as well as a Transport Bike that fires hails of Poison projectiles.

Grimdark Future Battle Report

Recently we brought you some news Japan so this week we’re bringing you some news from Italy!

Mattia from Wargames per Passione has released a video battle report playing Grimdark Future, featuring Battle Brothers vs AI Orc Marauders.

The battle report is a great showcase of a small beginner match, which also features detailed explanations of how the game and the AI rules work.

If you don’t speak Italian don’t worry, just turn on subtitles and enjoy. :)


Wave 2 Update

Finally we’d like to let you know that Wave 2 is coming along great, with the Grimdark Future armies almost completed and work on the Age of Fantasy ones starting soon.

We’re also going to be fixing a couple of little mistakes we made in the Wave 1 armies, and hopefully everything will be ready by next week for you to enjoy.

If you’d like to support the project and have immediate access to all of the Wave 2 files already now, please consider supporting us on Patreon, every little bit helps!

Fantasy-Havoc


That’s it for today folks, hope you have a nice weekend and that you’re as pumped as we are for the release of Wave 2 next week.

Happy Wargaming!

Wave 1 Completed, 12 Armies and 20 Factions Updated

Age of Fantasy, Firefight, Game Update, Grimdark Future, Skirmish

Hi everyone,

We’re happy to announce that we’ve completed Wave 1 of our army balance updates and that you can find all of the new files in the respective army folders for each game already.

This was a lot of work because whilst we “only” updated 12 armies some of them had multiple sub-armies inside of them, so we actually updated a whole 20 factions. Then each army has to be updated for both large-scale as well as skirmish, so yeah… 300+ units have been updated and this is only Wave 1. :D

Anyway, enough of the numbers, let’s get to the actual meat of the update!

Changes to Firefight & Skirmish

The army update comes with general game updates, as well as a with one major change for all of our skirmish games: We are switching back to having grouped units act as groups in the game, instead of having them act as individuals.

Whilst working on the patch we realized that whilst it was fun to have every model act as an individual, the games were not designed with that amount of low-cost models being able to act independently in mind. This means that there are a lot of imbalances that are coming out of it that would require us to change the game into a completely different direction, re-work the point calculator, and more.

Since we have no intention to have our skirmish games to diverge too far away from the large-battle games (since we want it to be easy to hop from one game to the other), we are just going to switch back to the old system. Truly this switch is nothing big, just activate those low-cost models as a unit again and you’re good to go. :)

Fantasy-Deep-Sea

General Game Changes

The rest of the changes aren’t that big, but there’s one important thing that we’d like to address before going into them: We’re going to be temporarily removing the Full Color versions of our files and only have Black & White versions for all of them.

As you read above we are working with a LOT of files for our games, and putting everything together we’re dealing with ~100 files right now. Having each of these files both in Full Color and Black & White is adding an insane amount of work to our already busy schedule, and we simply can’t afford to continue having both right now.

This doesn’t mean that we’re getting rid of our new Cover Art or Illustrations, so those are still going to be part of the rules. If you want to save on ink simply don’t print out the Cover Art page from the Full Rulebooks or the first Background Story page from the Army Books.

Currently we’re looking into ways of maybe having dynamic files that allow you to choose between different options with just 1 single file, but no promises on that yet.

new layout grimdark

Anyway, here the full changes:

  • Fear now counts as dealing +D3 wounds for melee results (GF + AoF)
  • Fear now counts as dealing +D3 wounds for wound effects (GFF + AoFS)
  • Furious now gives +1 attack with a weapon of choice when charging
  • Rending was re-written to be clearer
  • Artillery now gives the unit Defense 2+ against shooting attacks
  • Fire Breath now deals 3 automatic this with AP(1), clarified that needs line of sight
  • Units with multiple models are activated as a single unit instead of individuals
  • Special rules with a “bubble” effect had their range raised from 3″ to 12″
  • Units within 12″ of a hero can now use his quality for morale tests
  • Spell effects can now be spread by up to 6″

Because we are updating armies in different waves this might lead to some quirky situations in terms of point cost balance or the way spells and special rules work.

The only way to avoid this would be to release all the updated armies at once, but since that might take a long time and we are updating them in order of popularity, we think it’s not fair toward our players to hold on to a finished product for longer than necessary.

We hope that any imbalances won’t be too bad and that we’re going to finish updating all of the armies quickly so everyone can enjoy! :)

Big in Japan, MACE & Balance Changes

Uncategorized

Hi everyone,

We’ve been spending the last couple of weeks working on the new balance changes which are coming out pretty great, and whilst we won’t be able to release them yet you can probably expect Wave 1 to be out by next week.

Anyway, in this update we’re going to go a little bit deeper into what exactly is changing with the upcoming balance patch, but first we have some unexpected news for you.


Big in Japan

As most of you know back in the day there used to be many more games on OPR than there currently are, which were removed during the big purge of 2017.

One of the most popular games we had was called WarStuff, which was a very simple skirmish system designd to be played with any miniatures (or other stuff) that you have at hand.

The game came with a simple point calculator that allowed you to quickly put together units for anything from green army men to toy dinosaurs to even just random objects (ever wanted to fight a bottle of shampoo?).

Anyway, it seemst hat WarStuff was the little game could, and now this wargaming sensation has spread all the way over to Japan!

warstuff1.PNG

Yes, you’re not dreaming, someone took one of our games, translated it to Japanese, and filled the rulebook with cute illustrations.

According to Akinori Nishiyama (the guy in charge of this project) there’s a growing community of 300+ players that uses WarStuff for their wargaming needs.

Since we’ve been in contact we’re looking into adapting the game further for the Japanese market, so let’s see where this takes us!

Download WarStuff (JP): https://drive.google.com/file/d/1rl9Ln2W8nWLb5sGZ2iHiv4NjHpDL_oze/view?usp=drivesdk

warstuff2

Before anybody asks, as we already mentioned in one of our previous updates we’re planning to bring back a lot of our old games in the new One-Offs format, and you can expect WarStuff to be one of them.

Right now we’re focusing on releasing all of the new balance changes, but youc an expect more news right after that’s done. :)


Grimdark Future at MACE

Wyloch from the awesome YouTube channel Wyloch’s Armory is going to be at MACE next month, so if you want to join him you’re most welcome to do so.

From his announcement:

“I will be at MACE in Charlotte, NC next month and will be running demonstrations of Grimdark Future with conference attendees. We will be using my terrain and my fully painted armies. It will be a visual spectacle to ensure that I champion OnePageRules in the most memorable way possible.

There are still open spots at my table. If you are near North Carolina and have an open schedule, consider a last minute trip!

www.justusproductions.com/category/justus-events/mace/

Link to his post: http://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/9248/thread

If you don’t know Wyloch, he’s the guy behind a ton of awesome Grimdark Future Video Batreps, which you should definitely check out!


Upcoming Balance Changes

So, we’ve been talking about the new balance changes for the past couple of weeks, but what exactly is changing?

Whilst we don’t want to go into too much detail as to what exactly is going to change for each army (since with 40+ armies that would be too much for a single post), we’re going to give you a bullet point overview of what you can expect.

Here are the overall changes that are coming:

  • Rock-Paper-Flamer – The basic troops of each army will have access to melee or ranged weapons that allow them to deal with different types of units, such as infantry hordes, heavy infantry toops and monsters/vehicles.
  • Shred Rifles & Beast Pikes – For those armies that don’t have any existing weapon that fits the bill to counter certain unit types we’re going to be introducing new wepaons such as the Shred Rifle and the Beast Pike.
  • Upgrades as Alternatives – To give players more interesting choices most melee weapons and some ranged weapons are being re-worked so that weapons aren’t one strictly better than the other, but instead that they have different stats so they are each alternatives that deal better with specific targets than others.
  • Swiss Army Psychic – All armies are going to have access to some sort of spell caster, and all of the spell lists are being re-worked to give them spells that can deal with different types of units, such as infantry spam or heroes that hide in units.
  • Walker Stomps – Walker units are going to lose the Impact rule and gain a new Stomp attack, which makes them more reliable in melee and also ensures that if both their army are replaced by ranged weapons they’re not suddenly unable to squish infantry units.
  • Bikes & Charging – Biker units are being re-worked to be more effective at charging and so that they can be used as effective cavalry units that devastate enemies in melee (but can also still be equipped with ranged weapons if you so desire).
  • Lowering Randomness – In order to make units more reliable we’re going to be lowering the amount of random rolls that are in the game. For example if a spell used to say “deal D6 automatic hits” it will now say “deal 4 automatic hits”, this way you always know what to expect.
  • Streamlining Melee – Finally to make things move along faster we’re going to be re-working the Fear and Furious rules, as well as streamlining the amount of units that have access to Impact.

Of course there are a ton of other little changes happening here and there which will re-balance the game, but those will be all detailed in each army release wave update!

If you’ve always thought about supporting the project and were just waiting for an opportunity to get something extra neat for doing so then make sure to check out our Patreon, which will give you exclusive early access to all new army balance changes right now.

New 3D Print Hero, Community Campaigns and Community Contributions

3D Print, Collaboration, The Makers Cult

Hi everyone,

Today’s update isn’t going to be very big, I’ve been focussing a lot on updating the Wave 1 armies, but we still got some really awesome stuff for you!

New 3D Print Battle Brothers Hero

The guys over at The Makers Cult are just really really awesome, I don’t know what more to say. :D

Without even asking them for it they’ve gone ahead and created another version of the official OPR Battle Brothers Hero, this time giving him an Energy Hammer and a Combat Shield.

featured_preview_1

It’s like with every new miniature they make for us things just keep getting more awesome, and we can’t wait to see what else they’ve got to offer in the future.

Get the miniature here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3897618

Check out The Makers Cult here: https://www.patreon.com/themakerscult

featured_preview_2.jpg

We’ve also added a new section on the homepage to highlight all of the cool 3D print stuff we have going, so make sure to check it out: https://onepagerules.com/3d-print/

Community Campaigns

As we mentioned in a previous post we’ve been running a GFF campaign over on the official forum, and since that campaign is about to come to an end we’d like to set some new ones up.

We’ve learned a lot since the original inception of the “Prophecy of the Page” campaign, and now we’re ready to reveal a new campaign format.

In order to give everyone a chance to play at their own pace, we’re going to have a “permanent” campaign format, where people can hop in and out of campaigns as they please, whilst keeping everything balanced.

The way this works is simple: Divide the number of matches you won by the number of matches you played and multiply by 100 (round up the result). This is your final Campaign Score. Warbands must play at least 5 matches in order to be put on the Campaign Score Board.

Example: If you won 5 matches and played 8, then your Campaign Score would be 63.

Pretty simple, you see?

Anyway, to get everyone going we’ve set up a couple of threads on the forum for different campaigns, so you should definitely check these out:

GFF Gang Wars Campaignhttp://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/9164/thread

AoFS Community Campaignhttp://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/9166/thread

If you don’t have anyone that is up for playing a campaign with you don’t worry, you can always join us on Discord and play online over Roll20.

Fantasy-Daemons

Community Contributions

Lately there have been a ton of awesome contributions made by the community and we’d like to point out just a few of them which we think deserve some attention. We’re really happy about the OPR community and couldn’t wish for more, all of you are awesome!

BattleScribe 2.0http://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/8458/thread

We know we’ve mentioned this before but we simply have to do it again because of how great of a resource this is for all players. There’s a thread on the forum where people create BattleScribe files that allow you to put together army lists quickly and hassle-free, and you should definitely check it out.

Expanding the Lorehttp://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/8419/thread

Whenever we create a new army we try to keep the background story as open as possible, giving players a chance to create their own stories… and a lot of people are doing that. There’s a thread on the forum where lots of players have been sharing their own visions of the lore, with lots of cool stories.

Ancient Derelictshttp://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/9007/thread

Have you ever wanted to explore an abandoned spaceship that’s infested by Soul-Snatchers? Well the head on over to the forum where there is a fan made expansion for GFF that allows you do just that. Explore the ship, gather loot, upgrade your Destroyers and destroy the Soul-Snatcher nest to win.

Full French Translationhttp://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/8985/thread

Whilst most people usually just translate the core rules for our games, Squale has gone the extra mile and has translated most of the army lists for Grimdark Future into French too. We know it’s an enormous effort to do that with the hundreds of units that are in the game, bravo.

Hobby Progresshttp://onepagerules.proboards.com/thread/1198/hobby-progress-thread

Last but not least we wanted to let you know about the hobby progress thread, where players have been sharing a ton of pictures of their awesome looking miniatures and conversions. Here you’ll find all sorts of cool stuff, including 3D printed miniatures, paper miniatures and even scratch-built miniatures.

If you had an idea for someting that you think is really cool don’t be afraid to share it, we’re all very happy with all of the awesome stuff that everyone has been contributing.

Grimdark-Aliens

**********

That’s it for today, like I said just a short update. Next week we’re going to be finally expanding on what exactly is coming up in the new balance changes, make sure not to miss out on the new post!

Happy Wargaming!
