Community Survey – January 2020

Community Survey

Hi everyone,

2019 was a year of big changes for OPR, during which we polished our games a lot as well as re-released a lot of old games. We also added a ton of new features that we always thought the project needed, and now we feel pretty stable in our offering.

That being said, we want 2020 to be an even bigger year for OPR!

Since we’re stable and things have calmed down this is the perfect opportunity to start expanding what we provide to our players. This year we want to release new games, as well as delve into unknown territory and try completely new things, so it’s going to be a very interesting journey.

To help us with that, we’re launching a new community survey today: https://forms.gle/WCvXCSbTLMarM1rP8

This community survey is a bit different from the last one, in that we’re asking for a much broader range of opinions on a multitude of topics. Because of this we’ve added an extra blank field to each question so that if you don’t find the option you want in the list, then you can add your own comment.

There are a couple of things we’d like to highlight about the questions:

Question 1 – Game Jam: The plan right now is to do a 48hr game jam that takes place over a weekend, where everyone is given a simple theme to build a one-page game around. We’ll be providing all of the documents and guidelines to make the process as simple and possible, and we’re thinking of using itch.io for the uploads.

Question 2 – New Games: For this question we’d like to know what games you’d actually be interested in playing, which you already have models for or for which you’d buy new models. The list is quite short so feel free to add any additional themes you’re interested in, as we’ve surely missed a ton of popular ones.

Question 3 – Paper Miniatures: Here we’re talking about paper miniatures for a completely new game and/or project, and not for our existing games. Right now we’re not too keen on making miniatures for all of our existing armies (they’re far too many), but please do leave your opinion in the blank space.

Question 4 – Physical Miniatures: We’ve been in contact with an awesome miniatures company that already has a few KS projects under its belt, and we’re looking to see if it would make sense to collaborate on a new project. The main idea would be to create a custom game that comes with a two player set and that can be expanded upon, but that can be fully enjoyed as a stand-alone boxed game. This way people can get awesome miniatures that they can play with forever, instead of having to buy in to yet another model line that they’re afraid might be abandoned one day.

Question 5 – Expansions: Here we’re talking about expansion booklets that are akin to the full rulebooks, so not just a one-page affair (like the skirmish campaign rules). The narrative campaigns would come with their own storyline and multiple scenarios, whilst the other expansions would have special rules, new mission types, random events, etc.

If you have a minute to spare please take the community survey, it really helps a lot: : https://forms.gle/WCvXCSbTLMarM1rP8

Happy Wargaming!

Sky-City Dwarves vs Disciples of Change

Age of Fantasy, Quickplay Armies

Hi everyone,

Recently my laptop died (RIP Fujitsu AH532, you served me well) so right now I’m trying to get a new one up and running ASAP.

All of the project files were backed up in the cloud so we didn’t lose anything, however this means that work on the project has slowed down for now.

In the meantime we thought it would be cool to bring you some Quickplay Armies for one of the cooler boxed sets released recently, and hopefully there will be more of these coming out this year! :)


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!

For far too long have the Sky-City Dwarves felt safe high in the clouds, but not for much longer, as the Disciples of Change have taken up arms and are flying straight at them with their deadly daemonic discs.

This week’s Quickplay Armies: Sky-City Dwarves vs Disciples of Change

Sky-City Dwarves

  • 1x Sky-Gunboat
  • 3x Balloon Wardens w/ Sky-Mines
  • 3x Balloon Riggers

Disciples of Change

  • 1x Birdman Shaman w/ Disc of Change & Wizard(2)
  • 3x Birdmen Disc Riders w/ Lances & Bows of Fate
  • 3x Birdmen Disc Riders w/ Lances & Bows of Fate
  • 3x Manta Daemons

The Sky-City Dwarves in this set focus try to make up for their small numbers by boasting high toughness and solid defense. The list comes with a powerful Sky-Gunboat that can wreak havoc with a variety of ranged weapons, as well as Baloon Wardens that pose a big threat to melee units with their Sky-Mines.

The Disciples of Change on the other side focus on crazed birdmen that launch into battle with their razor sharp flying discs. The list comes with a Bidman Shaman that can cast powerful offensive spells, as well as a pack of Manta Daemons that devour their foes in melee whilst also being able to take quite a beating.

Fantasy-Dwarves-2


That’s it for today, we’re hopefully going to be back next week with more news on cool things to come, as well as a couple of patches for our One-Off games.

Happy Wargaming!

Help Wyloch Out!

Battle Report, Grimdark Future

Hi everyone,

Over the past year Wyloch has been putting out a ton of awesome Grimdark Future battle reports on his YouTube crafting channel which has been really great for our project, however now he needs our help. :)

Due to some YouTube algorithm shenanigans he’s now had to set up a new separate channel that’s 100% dedicated to all things gaming, including battle reports for your favorite OPR games.

Please help him out by subscribing to his new channel, and if you can leave a like, post a comment and share his videos that would be super helpful too!

 

Here’s his latest Grimdark Future battle report, an explosive 4000pts showdown between the TAO Coalition and the Robot Legions:

 

Wyloch has helped our project a ton by spreading the word and showing off how awesome miniature wargaming can be, even if it comes in such a small package as OPR.

Thank you!

2019 in Review

AI Rules, Battle Report, Grimdark Future, Merch, OPR Store, WarStuff

Hi everyone,

With the year coming to an end and we thought it would be cool to give you some insights into how the project has been doing, how the community has been developing, and a couple of cool things for you to check out.

Before we continue I’d like to thank you all for your amazing support you’ve given to this project by donating and spreading the word, this really is a dream come true and none of it would’ve been possible without you.

So, let’s dig in to some numbers! :D

This year has been amazing in terms of traffic and it’s been our biggest year so far, with 45,000+ visitors and 200,000+ page views over the past 12 months.

On top of that our games have been downloaded 100,000+ times, which is amazing!

monthly traffic

This traffic is coming from all over the world, and whilst the main concentration is in North America and Europe, we were amazed to see that our games have been downloaded in 120+ countries (apparently we even got some downloads from the Vatican, who knew the pope loves miniature wargames?).

countries.PNG

It’s also been really cool to see that our games have spread out all the way to Japan where there is now a whole team dedicated to translating WarStuff into Japanese (download it here). I’m really grateful for all the awesome work they have done, and you should definitely check out their Instagram page here.

This year we’ve also been putting a lot of effort into releasing a lot more content and providing cool stuff for our Patreon supporters, and it really paid off because it’s also been our biggest year there, going from ~60 patrons in January all the way up to ~250 patrons in December. If you aren’t a patron yet you can support us here.

patreon

This year has also been one where we introduced a lot of new things to the project, and seeing how well they’ve all been received we’re going to keep pushing to innovate and provide all of our players with new content.

Back in August we launched our Monthly Newsletter and even though we’re new to this it’s been going pretty awesome so far. We’ve got 125+ subscribers and it keeps on growing, so we’re going to try and invest a little more time into it in the future just to make it that much more awesome. If you haven’t subscribed yet you can do so here.

Then in November we also also launched our Teespring Store, where we can finally offer some of the Brandon’s amazing art to be printed on a t-shirt. Even though we’re still super new to this we’re proud to say that we’ve had 500+ visitors so far! If you want to order your own t-shirt, mug, sticker, etc. then check out the store here.

opr-shop-1

When it comes to community we’ve also taken some bold steps in a new direction by having a dedicated Discord Server where players can discuss the games, chat about the lore, or organize online games via Roll20.

We’ve recently also linked the server to our Patreon rewards so patrons get access to exclusive channels, and really if you haven’t checked it out I think you’re missing out on a BIG part of our community. Join the server here.

Of course this doesn’t mean that the OPR Forum isn’t doing great as well, and we now have 750+ members and 950+ threads on there. This year we’ve introduced a new Hobby Section for people to share pictures of their models, and the community has been posting some awesome content like Vurrunna’s Proxy Paper Miniatures. Join the fun here.

We’re also really happy to see that the YouTube community has been embracing our games more and more, with content creatures making some awesome game reviews and battle reports with our rules. Check out some of the videos here:

We really couldn’t be prouder of how far our little project has come over the past year, and we’re really looking forward to all of the cool new stuff that we’re going to be doing over the next 12 months. :D

That’s it for the last post of 2019, we hope you enjoyed this little insight into everything that’s been going on and we’ll be back in a few weeks.

Happy new year!

6 New Games Released!

Army Men Combat, Deathball, Double Tap, One-Offs, Orion's Gate, WarStuff, Wasteland Racing

Hi everyone,

For those of you that don’t know, before the great purge of 2017 we used to have a lot more games than just Grimdark Future and Age of Fantasy, many of which were beloved by OPR fans all over the world.

Those games had been discontinued for a long time because we felt that we didn’t have the time to properly support them, and couldn’t find a neat way to keep them available for the community as we re-worked our project for the future.

Fans have been asking us for years to bring fan-favorites such as WarStuff and Double Tap back, and today we’re happy to say that the long wait is over!

If you check out our website you’re not going to find a new section called One-Off Games, which is going to be our new repository for a ton of small and awesome games that didn’t make the cut to become bigger (yet).

Mockup.png

So what are One-Off Games you ask?

One-Off Games are stand-alone games in our signature one-page format, which are developed to explore specific mechanics or miniature lines. These games have minimum support and could be removed at any point unless they prove to be popular enough.

Check them out here: https://onepagerules.com/portfolio/one-off-games

For today we’re only bringing back 6 of our most popular classic games, but in the future you can expect more games to be released this way as we find interesting ideas to explore or just need some rules to play with cool new miniatures.

Army Men Combat – These rules were specifically created to be played with green army men and using household items as terrain, though you can use any miniatures you like. The rules feature an interesting random activation mechanic where you have a higher chance of going next if you have more unactivated units, as well as the ability to use Hunker actions for extra protection and Guard actions to fire overwatch. The rules also use an old-school dice pool system, where instead of using modifiers on your rolls you add dice to your pool and compare results.

army men combat.jpg

Deathball – These rules were created to play fantasy sports games without a grid and with any fantasy, sci-fi, post-apoc, etc. miniatures. The activation mechanic in this one is really cool because you have to gamble to activate, so there’s a nice risk/reward system for big plays. Top it off with rules for special racial traits, different terrain types, coach points and random events, and you’ve got yourself a neat and brutal sports game!

deathball.jpg

Double Tap – Spec-ops combat for modern military or cyberpunk settings, featuring a tried and true action/reaction system that makes every activation important. The game comes with a ton of weapons and special rules to customize your soldiers, which provide a balanced challenge for even the most experienced operators. Highly recommended!

double tap.jpg

Wasteland Racing – This is a re-vamp of the old Grimdark Racing rules, and boy are you in for a treat. A full-on beer & pretzels game, these rules allow you to smash together toy cars like never before, zooming around deadly race tracks. With rules for everything from pick-up items to speed boosts, as well as lots of vehicle types and driver traits for customization, this is probably the most fun ruleset we’ve ever written. :D

wasteland racing.jpg

Orion’s Gate – First things first, this game was developed based on an original idea by Austin Peasley, who helped OPR immensely in its hay-day. Orion’s Gate is a spaceship battles game developed to fight massive battles in a short time, and it can also be used to fight fantasy or historical naval battles. The game features a 2D6 system that keeps things balanced across multiple ship types, and there’s a ton of customization for your ships so that no two battles are alike.

orions gate.JPG

WarStuff – Last but not least, WarStuff! This has been the single most requested game to come back since the purge, and we’re really happy to finally see its return. These rules allow you to fight quick skirmish battles with any type of toys or miniatures thanks to its easy to use unit creation system. This is the perfect game to bring to game stores or conventions so that players with models from different games can still play together.

Discord Rewards for Patrons

Finally we wanted to give you a little update regarding our Patreon rewards.

We’re always looking for ways to improve how we can reward fans for their donations, and since so many of you love using Discord we’ve gone ahead and linked the two!

All of our backers now get a special role that shows that they are supporting our project, and backers of Tier 2, 3 and 4 also get access to secret channels to discuss all of the exclusive content that we provide.

That’s it for today folks, really hope you enjoy these new games and that you have a nice holiday. We’ll be back next week to give you a peek into the future!

Happy Wargaming!

All Armies Updated!!!

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

Hi everyone,

Today we’re extremely pleased to announce that all armies have been updated to the new format and with the latest balance changes. :D

This has been an incredible feat as we’ve updated:

  • 40+ armies
  • 70+ factions
  • 1000+ units!

None of this would’ve been possible without the help from our awesome community, as well as our Patreon donations which allow us to invest more time into the project.

With the new balance changes we’ve tried to make sure that all units and weapons have a place on the tabletop, and with the new look we’ve tried to give each armybook a little extra flavor.

The new layout actually has a cool little benefit, in that you can now see a preview image of each army’s illustration in the Army Book Folder, making it even easier to browse for your favorite army.

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.

OPR Merch Store is Live!

OPR Store

Hi everyone,

Today we’re proud to announce that finally the OPR Merch Store is live!

Check it out here: teespring.com/stores/one-page-rules

We’ve checked with the Teespring team and they said that if you make an order now it should still be delivered before Christmas, so if you’re still on the fence about what to get for your loved ones then maybe one of our awesome t-shirts is the answer. :D

Right now we’ve got T-Shirts (male and female), Hoodies, Mugs and Stickers available, but if you want one of our designs on another product (Tote Bags, Phone Cases, etc.) make sure to send me an e-mail and I’ll see what we can do.

Here’s how to use it:

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.

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!
