Darkness Within, Survey Results, Gangs Updates

2D Print, 3D Print, Collaboration, Community Survey, Painting Contest

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got a bunch of cool stuff for you, with a teaser for Darkness Whitin, results for last week’s Community Survey, a ton of new Gang Units, plus some news for 3D Printing as well as a brand new 2D Print Collaboration.

Let’s get to it!


Darkness Within

December saw the completion of the Jakob’s Path narrative campaign for Grimdark Future, so starting in January we’ve got a brand new Age of Fantasy narrative campaign coming at you called Darkness Within.

Community Survey Results

Every 6 months we’re happy to make a community survey, where players get the chance to tell us what they want to see in the future, share which armies they play, and provide any feedback they have.

Usually we also have some extra questions about other stuff, but this time we decided to keep the survey lean and simple, focusing on the things that matter to us the most.

Let’s see what results we got. :D

Which of these settings would you be interested in for new full games?

Alright, this is the big one, as it guides the development of our next games, and it seems that we got pretty much the same results as in our last survey, except that this time “Customizable Skirmish” has also shot it’s way to the top, and we’ve got a lot of votes for a One-Page RPG as well, which is not the norm.

Here’s the top 5 highlighted:

  • Small-Scale Sci-Fi – 37.5%
  • Mech Combat – 35.6%
  • Customizable Skirmish – 32.9%
  • Cyberpunk – 28.8%
  • One-Page RPG – 21.9%

Let’s break down what we’ve been planning for the future, since it’s going to be pretty much in line with the survey results:

  • Very soon we’ll have a One-Page RPG system coming as a one-off game, to test the waters and see how people like our approach to the genre. If we see that it gets a good response, then we might expand that into a full game in the future.
  • Then we’ve got a new Skirmish Adventure Game that we’ve been trying to develop over the past couple of months, which will also scratch a bit of that RPG itch, but most importantly it will be in line with the results from the last survey.
  • For Mech Combat, right now we’re working on revising the FTL rules, and once that is done and we’ve got the full game released, we’ll be working on a Mech Combat game that uses a modified version of the same engine.
  • For Small-Scale Sci-Fi, that’s something that we’ve been thinking about for a very long time, and we’re probably going to build a system that uses a similar model as FTL, where you have a core set of units types and customization options, plus 5-6 factions that can be further customized (instead of 20+ army books).
  • For Cyberpunk, we’ve currently got the Double Tap rules as a one-off, and would be very happy to expand those into a full game, so that’s definitely coming some day. Honestly with the development speed we have we’re not sure if it’ll be possible in 2021, but we’ll try.
  • Finally, for Customizable Skirmish, we’ve had some ideas on how we could expand on WarStuff to make it a little more fun and customizable, whilst also adding some new ways to play, and we’re planning on working on that as a side-project since it doesn’t take up as much time as developing other games.

That’s it on the games side, now onto the next two questions:

Which Grimdark Future armies do you play?

On the Grimdark Future side things are pretty stable as usual, with lots of Battle Brothers players dominating the landscape. It’s really cool to see that we’ve got some people that are playing the armies we’ve done in collaboration with TMC and TEO, and we’re hoping to do more in the future!

Which Age of Fantasy armies do you play?

With Age of Fantasy we also have more or less similar results as in the last survey, with a much more balanced distribution of armies played. It’s also cool to see that some people are playing the just recently released Giant Tribes, which are definitely a niche army.

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

Finally, the open question is always a delight, since we get such a diverse range of feedback, questions, suggestions, and more. There’s also always a bunch of you who use this opportunity to thank us for making the games, which is very heart warming, and actually I have to thank you for making this possible. This project truly couldn’t exist without it’s fans, and I’m happy that we have such a nice community! :D

Now onto some of the feedback, I’ll try to keep it brief:

  • Some people have asked us if your focus will shift from games to miniatures, and the answer is a very decisive no. The miniatures are a great way for us to further establish our own settings, to provide fans with something cool, and to provide funding for the project, but that’s it. Whilst we definitely want to keep expanding and improving our miniatures, we have no intention to stop focusing on the games. We provide regular updates to all of our games, and currently have 3 games in early access, with more coming in the future, so we’ve actually ramped up our game development as well. So don’t worry about the games, lots of stuff is coming your way!
  • Lots of people commented that they’d like to see more stuff like Gang Wars but for the other games, like a Mordheim-style game, or Crusade-style rules. That’s definitely something that we’re planning on doing, so it’s just a matter of time before it’s released.
  • There’s also lots of people that have suggested we do map-based campaigns, and that’s also something that we’ve already been planning on doing, so it’s just a matter of time before we get to it.
  • Some people have asked us to provide solo-rules for our games, but actually we already have solo-rules for all of our 5 mainline games. This probably means that the information is not displayed well on the website, and we’ll have to take a look at how to make things more visible.
  • In addition to that, a lot of people have asked for a solo/coop skirmish dungeon exploration game, and as we mentioned above, we’ve got a Skirmish Adventure Game in the works which is exactly that.
  • There were some people who asked if it’s possible to play our games online, and it definitely is! We have an active community of players that use Roll20 and TTS, so make sure to join our Discord server to set up games.
  • Some people asked if we have plans to release 100% original OPR armies for 3D printing, and that’s also something we’ve been planning on doing. Right now we’re going to be doing 2 regular army releases followed by 1 original army release, so you can look forward to that.
  • Finally, a lot of people have said that they enjoy the little snippets of lore we provide, and that they’d like to see more. Well, fret not, as we’ve got a whole series of campaigns coming out which take place in our game universes, so there’s lots of lore coming you way.

I’d like to thank everyone who took part in the survey once more, and we’ll be back with another community survey in about 6 months when we can catch up again! :D


New Gang Units

With Gang Wars being currently available on Patreon, we’ve decided to go back and re-visit the Gangs of Hive City army list, adding 20 new units for the existing gangs, as well as adding a completely new mercenaries gang, which features units that can be taken by any gang to bolster their abilities.

  • The Cult – Mutant Shamblers, Bomb Rats
  • The Hidden – Spiker Telepaths
  • The Femmes – Murder Maidens, Wild Runners, Lynx Beasts, Chimeric Beasts
  • The Brutes – Combat Stimmers, Forge Natives, Berserkers, Pet Crocodiles
  • The Miners – Weapon Masters, Jetpack Wreckers, Cargo Cyborgs, Guard Mastiffs

Collaboration with Chimeric Creations

This month we’ve got a new collaboration with Chimeric Creations, who make awesome 2D fantasy miniatures: https://rebrand.ly/ChimericCreationsDTRPG

Chimeric Creations was actually started by one of our community members Murmillo, who has been working toward creating fantasy miniatures that can be used to play miniature wargames and RPG’s. This set actually works perfectly to play a Dark Elf warband in AoF: Skirmish, or even build a small Dark Elf army for AoF!

New 3D Print Previews

Finally we’ve got some new previews for the models that are coming this month, which are looking great!

2D Print, 3D Print, Collaboration, Community Survey, Game Update

Hi everyone,

Let’s get to it!

For those of you that are new, you can check out the last survey’s results by clicking here.


Game Updates

This week we’ve made a couple of small updates to some of our GF and AoF armies, addressing little issues here and there, and making sure some models can be used correctly in the games.

Grimdark Future

  • High Elf Fleets – Anti-Grav Tank now come with 2x Star Cannons
  • Knight Brothers – Fixed Combat Master’s Fool giving Rending instead of Poison
  • Lust Warriors – Heroes with Fast can now be upgraded with Lust Speed

Age of Fantasy

  • Bolt Throwers – Fixed cost of Bolt Throwers for High Elves, Dark Elves and Dwarves
  • Goblins – Sneaky Assassins now cost 70pts

New Arena Covers

We’ve been pretty happy with how our arena games turned out, and as we release new content for them on Patreon every month, they have grown to be very fun.

That being said, we felt that the cover art for the games was not really up to the standard of quality of our other games, and so we decided to re-work it into something awesome. :D

Download the rulebooks with the new cover art here:

Season 2 is currently in its last month of development, and will be available to the public in January, along with some awesome new cover art for it as well!


Free Gift by White Werewolf Tavern for Tier 2 patrons

This month our friends at White Werewolf Tavern were so kind to provide all of our Tier 2 patrons with an extra model as a free gift, with the mighty Karrash.

Tier 2 patrons can download them here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/43388557

White Werewolf Tavern is a small team that provides awesome fantasy tabletop miniatures for wargames and RPG’s. They have a Patreon where they release new models every month, and patrons also get a 30% discount code to their MMF Store. If  this wasn’t enough, they also provide gorgeous busts of their models, which are perfect for painters.

We’re very happy to be doing a collaboration with them, so make sure to check them out, they have super high quality miniatures which fight right in to play Age of Fantasy: Skirmish!


Cthulu Cult 2 by Barry Linck

If that wasn’t enough, this month we’re continuing our collaboration with Barry Linck, who makes awesome comics in his own quirky style: https://www.patreon.com/phinmagic

Writing Jam, New Expansions, Starter Set + More

3D Print, New Release, Painting Contest, Writing Jam

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got lots of cool news for you, from the Writing Jam, to our Gang Wars and Jakob’s Path expansions, a new AoF:S Starter Set, new Spear Skeletons and more.

Let’s get to it!


OPR Writing Jam #2

Back in September we hosted our very first OPR Writing Jam, which saw participants create a one-page story set in the OPR universe within a 48hrs deadline, and set to a theme.

Since people seem to have enjoyed both writing and reading the stories, and we’ve had multiple people request it over the past few months, we have decided to host the writing jams every 6 months!

This means that between game jams and writing jams, we’re going to have an OPR Jam every 3 months, allowing all of our fans to express their creativity and get together as a community to build fun stuff together.

The next writing jam is going to be in February, and you can sign up HERE.


Gang Wars Progress

Recently we announced that Gang Wars was under development, and things have been moving forward pretty quickly for the expansion over the last few weeks.

Whilst the game is still under development in early access, we’ve already added 95% of the content, and the expansion is now fully playable, only needing some minor tweaks.

Grab the expansion here: https://www.patreon.com/onepagerules

Gang Wars is going to remain in early access on Patreon until the end of the month, after which it will be removed and sold at a higher price on WargameVault, so grab it now!


Jakob’s Path Completed

It only seems like yesterday that we started releasing Jakob’s Path, but after 5 months the journey has finally come to an end, and now the story has been fully completed.

Jakob’s Path is a complete narrative campaign for Grimdark Future, which comes with an epic story spanning over 5 chapters and 10 action packed missions.

Follow the story of Jakob, an eager Battle Brother, as he hunts down Orc Marauders on the mysterious planet of Zeloria M-5, whilst searching for a precious artifact.

Grab the campaign here: https://www.patreon.com/onepagerules

Jakob’s Path is going to remain in early access on Patreon until the end of the month, after which it will be removed and sold at a higher price on WargameVault, so grab it now!


New AoF:S Starter – Dark Retribution

When we released the Assault on Outpost Lixus starter we were happy to see that many players enjoyed it, and of course we got requests for more starter sets for our games.

Well, your wishes have been granted, and today we’ve released a new starter set for Age of Fantasy: Skirmish, which sees the Kingdom of Angels clash against the Mummified Undead.

Get the starter set by clicking HERE.

Before we get even more requests, let us already say that we do have plans to release a starter set for AoF: Regiments as well, and also one for Warfleets: FTL.


December Painting Contest

Quick Update – Better Late Than Never

2D Print, 3D Print, Game Jam, Painting Contest

Hi everyone,

Things have been a little crazy over the past week, and we’re sorry that Friday’s update is only being posted now, but at least we’ve got a bunch of cool stuff for you.

Let’s get to it!


Game Jam #2 Results

Just a few weeks ago we ran our second ever OPR Game Jam, which was pretty awesome, with over 60 participants and 21 submitted games, we’re very happy with how it went!

The theme for the jam was SYNERGY, and it was really cool to see in how many different ways designers were able to approach the concept and take it in different directions.

Check out all of the submissions: https://itch.io/jam/oprgj2/entries

Check out the voting results: https://itch.io/jam/oprgj2/results

All of the submissions were really awesome, and honestly it was really hard to not just give everyone a 5 star rating across the board. In any case, here are some of our favorite games:

  • O.R.B.I.T. Link – This one might be one of my favorites simply because I’m a huge fan of Titanfall, and it’s a game that combines mech and infantry combat in a very elegant way. This could easily be re-worked into a full standalone game. :D
  • Android Racing Circuit – This is a fast-paced racing game that has racers running laps whilst trying to get control of a cyberball. Even includes a dexterity game for pit stops, which is just absolutely awesome!
  • Synergistic Outcomes – Android Netrunner: The Miniatures Game. Never thought I’d see such a cool take on the concept of a hacking game, and it comes with a huge number of Programs and ICE to boot.

Thanks everyone for participating, make sure to sign up for OPR Game Jam #3 which will take place in May 2021, and maybe there will also be a new writing jam in the meantime…


November Painting Contest Winners

This month we ran a Painting Contest, asking participants to paint any model from our October release and now the community voting results are in!

The winners are:

  • 1st Place with Most Votes: Sebastian Paints
  • Random Draw: Russintexas

Congratulations to both, who have won one free month at Tier 3 on Patreon!

We’d like to thank everyone who participated, and we’re hoping to see your entries again in next month’s painting competition. :)

In order to spice things up, starting next month we’re going to have 3 winners as per voting, but also 1 random participant will have the chance of winning a free month as well!


Black Friday DealLast Chance!

Today is the last day of our Black Friday sale on MMF, and you can now get 50% off everything in our MMF store by using code OPRFRIDAY:

Make sure to grab what you want before it’s too late!


Grimdark Future: Arena – Season 2 Complete

This month we released a new pack of amazing 2D print models for the Machine Cult, and with it we’ve also released all of the warband assets for arena.

Now that all 3 armies have been added season 2 is complete, which has made the game truly come together, as there are now tons of warbands, tactics boards, upgrade cards and hex-arenas to play with!

Get season 2 on Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/onepagerules

Season 2 will remain exclusively on Patreon until the end of December, after which it will be removed and sold separately at a higher price, so make sure to join now (and get tons of other stuff too)!


FTL – Nomads Release

In other 2D printing news, this month we also released the Nomads fleet, which looks absolutely stunning, and we can’t wait to see people play with it at home!

The Nomads are only available on Patreon until tonight, after which they will be sold separately on WGV/DTRPG like our other fleets. :)


Free Mummy

Just when you thought that OPR was done giving things out for free, here we go with our 4th free model in this month alone, which you can get on our Thingiverse page!

Grab the free Mummy here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4666194


December Releases on Patreon

With the latest batch of our Alien Hives and Mummified Undead models, we are going to take a break from those armies to start releasing two new ones as voted by the community: Robot Legions & Saurians!

Right now we’re still working out the details, but for each army you can expect 1-2 heroes, 5 infantry models and 3 large infantry or cavalry models. As soon as we have more info we’ll let you know.

On top of that we’re also going to have a new collaboration coming (more on that in the coming weeks), and we’re currently trying to get another FTL fleet done in December. Unfortunately due to personal reasons there have been some delays with the spaceships, and we can’t promise that there will be a new fleet in December, so we recommend waiting for more news if you’re subscribing specifically for the fleets.

Then aside from that there’s going to be Gang Wars, Jakob’s Path, AoF: Arena Season 2, and a ton of new and exciting paper models coming at you. December will be awesome! :D

As a teaser, here are some early concepts for our Robot Legions army:


That’s it for today, November has been a rough month for us, but we’re hoping to get back on track in December, and make sure everyone gets something cool in the holiday period. :)

Happy Wargaming!

GFF: Gang Wars is coming!

It seems that not a month goes by without us revealing some cool new thing, so here we go again with a brand new expansions for Grimdark Future: Firefight with Gang Wars!

So, what exactly is Gang Wars?

Gang Wars is an expansion for GFF that provides additional rules for violent gang combat in the streets of the dangerous and futuristic Hive City.

The rules are designed to be used both for one-off matches as well as for linked campaigns, and they can be played with any armies, although we recommend using Gangs of Hive City.

This is a standalone expansion, so you just need the free core rules and army lists that are available on the website, however you can also use the extra rules from the Full Rulebook to further expand your games.

The expansion’s campaign rules are based off the core campaign rules, however they come with a ton of extra content that add new layers to your GFF campaign experience.

In linked campaigns gangs will fight over city blocks and special locations, with an expanded roster of new skills and equipment, as well as a lot of other surprises. If you just want to play one-off games don’t worry though, most of the stuff can be used for single matches as well, such as 12 brand new missions and urban terrain rules.

Right now all of the following content is being added to the game, however there are even more systems that we’re playing around with, so you might get even more stuff in the end!

  • Campaign Rules
  • New Skill Traits
  • Hive City Armory
  • Territory Control Rules
  • Gang Turf Exploration
  • 12 New Missions
  • Urban Terrain Rules
  • City Fighting Rules
  • Critical Hits Rules
  • 36 New Random Events

Gang Wars is currently in early access on Patreon, with new content being added every week, and we’re hoping to have the first completed draft by the end of the month.

If everything goes well, then we’ll keep the game for a little while longer in early access, after which it will be removed and be available for sale in our WargameVault store.

This has been a blast to design, and we can’t wait to see people’s reactions once it’s out!

Grab your copy in early access here: https://www.patreon.com/onepagerules


New November Renders

This month has been extremely busy, so it’s been a bit slow for us to get renders of all the models done, but we’re happy to say that we’ve now got renders for almost all models!

Check them out:


Free Shooter Grunt

November seems to already be the month of giving for OPR, and today we’ve released our 3rd free model this month on our Thingiverse page, which is now getting packed!

Grab the free Shooter Grunt here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4659647


That’s it for today, tune in next week for the voting results for the game jam and the painting contest, as well as more awesome news about all things OPR. :D

Happy Wargaming!

OPR GAME JAME #2 IS NOW LIVE!

Game Jam

Hi everyone,

The second ever OPR Game Jam is now live, and the theme will be:

SYNERGY

What does that mean you ask?

Synergy is a principle of game design where the interaction between two systems leads to a greater outcome than just the sum of their parts.

This could mean having synergetic interactions between different weapons, special rules, unit types, terrain, or just the core systems of the game itself.

If you want to watch some videos talking about Synergy in games, check these out:

So, did those videos get you pumped up to design an awesome game?

Then head over to our Discord server to share your ideas: https://discord.gg/djBydgk

You now have 48hrs to design your game, and send in your submission by:

  • UK – 8PM BST Sunday November 15th
  • USA East Coast – 3PM ET Sunday November 15th
  • USA West Coast – Noon PT Sunday November 15th
  • Europe – 9PM CET Sunday November 15th
  • Japan – 4AM JST Monday November 16th
  • Australia – 5AM AEST Monday November 16th

Check out the Game Jam page for more info on submissions: https://itch.io/jam/oprgj2

Submission Rules:

  1. The game has to follow the theme.
  2. The game must fit on a single sheet, using the provided template:
    • The front page must contain all of the game’s core rules.
    • The back page may optionally contain rules on unit creation or special rules.
  3. Every game must be submitted along with the following:
    • A visual moodboard for the game. We recommend using BeFunky (it’s free).
    • (Optional) Pictures of you playing the game, the miniatures, the table, etc.

Please make sure to submit your game in PDF format so that it’s easy for everyone to read it on mobile and desktop!

We have created an example game (not following the theme) for you to see what a correct submission should look like, and if you need more inspiration you can check out our one-off games to see how you can fit a full experience on just one page. Make sure to also take a look at our last jam’s game submissions for even more awesome examples!

Finally we wanted to remind everyone that the most important thing is to create a game that has interesting mechanics and an engaging core gameplay loop, and not a perfectly balanced grand strategy game.

You could focus on creating a small one-off encounter for example (like a rowdy bar fight, or an exciting airplane dogfight), or maybe make a game that follows a short linear story. Either way, just try to make something fun to play, regardless of its size. :)

Happy Designing!

Warfleets: FTL Updates

FTL has been out for a few months now, and after a lot of exciting matches, playtesting and community feedback, we’ve now ready to release our first big patch for the game.

This update serves to address lots of balance issues across the board, making shooting overall a bit more reliable, and nerfing ramming to be less deadly. Overall we think this is a step in the right direction balance wise, but we’d like to remind everyone that the game is still in Early Access, so there may be bigger changes in the future.

Core Rules

  • Lowered number of objectives to D3+1
  • Lowered the Eva and Def value of all units by 1
  • Re-worked ramming to deal max. 2 damage
  • Blast range increased to 4″
  • Tsunami Cannon now has Ran 12″ and Acc 2, and may only be taken once per fleet
  • Re-named weapon upgrades with “Turret” in them to avoid confusion

Factions

  • Nomads – Clarified that Gravity Traps are placed when activated
  • Nomads – Clarified that System Overrider is for a single activation
  • Progenitors – Baryon Guns now have Acc 6
  • Progenitors – Neutron Cannons now have Acc 6 and Str 2
  • Xenos – Spike Launchers now have Acc 4 and Str 2

Dark Elves vs Lust Daemons Quickplay

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!

With a new big box of fantasy models on the horizon, we thought it would be cool to create some quickplay armies for you to get your new models into the game ASAP. This set features the vicious Dark Elves vs the twisted Lust Daemons. Note that as part of this set we’ve updated the Dark Elves army to v2.6.

Dark Elves

  • 1x Snake Lady
  • 5x Snake Sisters
  • 5x Snake Sisters w/ Shard Halberds
  • 5x Winged Sisters w/ Javelins

Lust Daemons

  • 1x Champion of Lust w/ Ritual Hammer
  • 10x Lust Warriors
  • 10x Lust Beast Riders
  • 1x Razor-Flail Chariot

The Dark Elves in this set focus on bringing a lot of Snake Sisters supported by Winged Sisters and a hero. The list comes with solid ranged and melee options across the board, as well as a powerful Snake Lady which dashes out lots of AP(4) attacks.

The Lust Daemons on the other side focus on high speed, with both Lust Beast Riders and a Razor-Flail Chaiot. The list is great at strategic assaults to take out the enemy on the charge, and also comes with a solid core of Lust Warriors and a Champion of Lust to hold the line.


Collaboration with CobraMode

This month our friends at CobraMode were so kind to provide all of our Tier 2 patrons with some extra models as a free gift, with the Mazigh Raider and Hanzaki Ninja.

Tier 2 patrons can download them here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/43388557

CobraMode is a small team that provides super stylish tabletop miniatures for wargames and RPG’s set in their own fantasy universe. They have a Patreon where they release new models every month, and patrons also get a 50% discount code to their MMF Store.

If that wasn’t enough, they also provide free 5e stats for each miniature, as well as a welcome pack, throwback minis, custom bases and more!

To help you get started with their awesome models, here’s a ~300pts quickplay list you can use to play with their Mikata Wetlands models in Age of Fantasy: Skirmish.

Mikata Wetlands (Ratmen)

  • Hikaga Sage – Warlock w/ Wizard(2)
  • Hanzaki Cavalry – Warlord on Gigantic Rat
  • Hanzaki Ninja – Night Scouts
  • Hikiga Artillery – Weapons Team w/ Poison Mortar
  • Hikaga Swordsman – Rat Ogre
  • Hikaga Bruiser – Rat Ogre

The Hanzaki Ninja is already available for free, so make sure to check out the army here.


Free Skeleton Warrior

Last week we released a free Assault Grunt on our Thingiverse page, so this week it’s time to release a beautiful fantasy model from our new line of miniatures.

Grab the free Skeleton Warrior here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4652194


AI vs AI Battle Report

Last but not least, Sad and Lonely Gamer has posted up a new Grimdark Future battle report, this time with two fully AI controlled armies facing off against each other. Definitely a very interesting match to check out!


That’s it for now, keep your eyes peeled for a new update later today in which we reveal the game jam theme with lots of details!

Happy Wargaming!

OPR has partnered up with PPSAZ in order to get our models printed for you at the cheapest price possible. Get high quality prints for a fraction of the price that it would cost you at other POD services!

Here is how it works:

That’s it, now you can just sit back and wait for your new models to be delivered!

Note that this is a US-based printer, so you should contact them directly to sort out how international shipping to you works: patriotprintingsaz@gmail.com

IMPORTANT: The only way we can provide such low prices is by requiring you to purchase the STL files from us first. You will receive an e-mail to provide the STL files as proof of purchase within 24 hours of buying the 3D printed models. If you don’t provide the STL files the sale will be rejected!

The Warband Creators give you everything you need in order to create custom stats for your models, as well as pre-made tactics boards and upgrade cards for 3 styles of warbands. That’s 30+ assets which you can combine to create your own warband, and if you want to also use the assets from the official warbands then it’s 180+ assets you can use!

On top of that we also provide you with all of the PSD files necessary to create custom tactics boards and upgrade cards, as well as PSD files to create custom hex-boards from scratch. There truly are no limits to your imagination!

The Warband Creators are only available on Patreon, so make sure to support us today!

Jakob’s Path Chapter 4

This week we released Chapter 4 of Jakob’s Path!

Jakob’s Path is a narrative campaign for Grimdark Future, which is being released in 5 chapters. Each chapter continues the story and features 2 new missions for you to play.

Whilst the campaign was written with Battle Brothers vs Orc Marauders in mind, it can be played with any other factions and whatever models you have available.

Chapter 4 – A bit shaken but still hopeful after the loss of many men, the Battle Brothers push on following the tracker’s signal. Little did they know that that simple signal was going to lead to a clash for the ages…

Game Related Updates

These past few weeks have been kind of crazy as we’ve had to deal with a lot of background stuff, but fret not, we’ve also been scribbling down lots of game related updates that we’re going to implement!

The Custodian Brothers are going to get an update that adds a lot of missing units, and we’re also going to be updating the Halflings adding more stuff to them as well. Then we’re also going to be heavily re-working the Gangs of Hive City list in preparation for… something cool. ;)

For the other games, we’re currently working on a large FTL update that’s going to fix some of the balancing issues we’ve found through more playtesting, and for the Arena Games we’re halfway through development of a custom warband creator so that you can use any models you have for them!


Battle Reports

Starting off with a bang, we’ve got a 3750pts solo match of Orc Marauders vs Plague Brothers by Sad and Lonely Gamer, which features two absolutely massive armies.

Then we’ve got a new batrep by Battle Knights, featuring 1000pts of Halflings vs Humans, in which two badass Cockatrices go berserk!

Finally Stonehorse Gaming has published another AoF: Regiments tactics video, this time discussing the deployment phase and various strategies for how to best deploy your army.


That’s it for today, hope you enjoyed this quick update, and we’re looking forward to the Game Jam in November to see all of your crazy and awesome game ideas!

Happy Wargaming!

New Armies, Paper Minis + More!

2D Print, Collaboration, Game Update, New Release, Painting Contest, 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!

The winner is:

  • Sebastian Paints

Congratulations to Sebastian, who has won one free month at Tier 3 on Patreon!

700 Patrons = 30% Discount

Speaking of Patreon, it’s barely been a week since we announced our new stretch goals, and the first one has already been broken, woo!
