Lots of Stuff!

2D Print, 3D Print, Campaign Rules, Game Jam 2020, Merch, Quickplay Armies, Skirmish

Hi everyone,

In today’s update we’re bringing you three brand new fantasy armies, some changes to the campaign rules, a couple of quickplay armies, as well as previews for what models we’re going to be releasing in May.


OPR Game Jam 2020

Before we begin we’d like to remind everyone that the first ever global game jam for miniature games is going to happen next weekend (8th of May to 10th of May)!

This will be a 48hr game making marathon, focused on creating one-page miniatures games. Anyone will be able to submit a game, and you can work alone or in teams.

When the jam is over everyone will be able to judge the games, and then we will highlight a few of our favourite games on the OPR website.

Sign up for the game jam here (it’s FREE): https://itch.io/jam/oprgj2020

The theme will be revealed on the day of the jam, so make sure to sign up now and keep your eyes peeled so that you can get creating straight away!

New Fantasy Armies

If you love Age of Fantasy then you’re going to love the three new armies we’re releasing today: Halflings, Havoc Dwarves and Shadow Stalkers.

Halflings are tiny humanoids even smaller than dwarves, and one of the most ancient races found in Tyria. Even though they might not look like strong warriors, they make up for their small size in luck and courage, so don’t underestimate them.

This army was inspired by the super cool models released as part of the TTCombat KS, as well as miniatures from other manufacturers available online.

Fantasy-Halflings

Havoc Dwarves are a faction of dwarves that have been corrupted by the havoc gods, and are now systematically razing one city after the next. Their bodies are covered in heavy armor sealed by the power of havoc, making them able to withstand even the mightiest of blows.

This army has been requested by fans for a long time and was inspired by the Mantic Abyssal Dwarves, as well as the FW Legions of Azgorh.

Fantasy-Havoc-Dwarves

Shadow Stalkers are elusive and nightmarish horrors that warp into being seemingly out of nowhere and haunt small villages all across of Tyria. Nothing is known about them except that they usually strike at night, and that their armies are lead by mighty pumpkin-head kings.

This army was inspired by the spooky Mantic Nightstalkers models, which feature everything from pumpkin-head scarecrows to cthulu-like monsters.

Fantasy-Stalkers


Campaign Rules Updates

After taking part in the recent Grimdark Future community campaign we’ve gone ahead and updated the Campaign Rules based on some of the feedback we got.

Here the changes:

  • Tweaked underdog rules to be a little more balanced
  • Added optional rules for playing without permadeath
  • Units can’t get the same level up trait more than once anymore

Fantasy-Generic

2D Print 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!

This month we started releasing 2D print models, which were all put together with some army lists in mind, however we never shared those with you, which was dumb…

So today we’re going to share the quickplay armies that our 2D print sets were based around, and in the future whenever we release a new set we’ll release a new quickplay army to go with it as well.

Firefight & Skirmish Rulebooks

It’s with great pleasure that today we’re finally releasing the full rulebooks for both Grimdark Future: Firefight and Age of Fantasy: Skirmish!

Before we get into the contents we’d like to present you the new cover art for these rulebooks, another stunning work by the wonderful Brandon Gillam.

But after that… ooh boy do we got a ton of cool stuff for you!

The next section of the rulebook contains advanced rules that add a ton of new content for your regular games, from different deployment styles, to new missions and actions.

All of the advanced rules are completely optional, so you can mix and match what you want, for example using only the extra actions that you like or that fit your playstlye.

Finally the total conversion section provides you with bigger rules changes that can fundamentally alter the way you play, giving you a completely new experience.

Here you’ll find things such as a new tactical phase that’s played before the battle begins, or in-depth city fighting rules that simulate different aspects of urban warfare.

Due to popular demand we’ve also added a whole section on how to play games in smaller spaces, so that you can easily play skirmish anywhere.

Here is a full list of all the advanced rules and total conversions:

  • Terrain Placement Rules
  • Multiple Deployment Styles
  • Extra Missions
  • Side-Missions
  • Extra Actions
  • Random Events
  • Battlefield Conditions
  • Terrain & Objective Effects
  • Fog of War Rules
  • Tactical Phase Rules
  • Command Points Rules
  • Suppression Rules
  • City Fighting Rules
  • Rules for Multiplayer Games
  • Rules for Kitchen Table Games

Oh, and did we mention that you can get these 2 rulebooks, plus the other 2 rulebooks, as well as lots of other rewards for the low price of just $3?!

So, what are you waiting for? Get them by clicking HERE.

We hope you all enjoy these new rulebooks and can’t wait to hear your comments and feedback on the new cover art, advanced rules and total conversions!

Battle Sisters Troops and more

3D Print, Age of Fantasy, Firefight, Game Update, Grimdark Future, Skirmish

Hi everyone,

Today we’re bringing you some awesome new 3D print models, an update on some of the models on cgtrader, as well as some smaller fixes to a couple of armies… and something else too…


Battle Sisters Troops Released

Last month we released the powerful Battle Sisters Champion, but she was a little bit lonely, so this month we’re releasing some troops for her to lead into battle!

troops-render-1

These battle-hardened troops form the back-bone of the Battle Sisters army, ready to burn down traitors and aliens to a crisp. These models come with 2 different head designs, 5 different weapons, as well as optional backpacks.

Download the models here:  https://www.patreon.com/posts/34548348

Note that you must be a Tier 3 patron to access to the link above.

These models are going to be available exclusively on Patreon until the 29th of April, after which they will go up for sale on our CGTrader store at a higher price.

Models removed from CGTrader

As some of you may have already noticed, we’ve removed the Battle Brothers and Dwarves models from our CGTrader store.

For various internal reasons we’re unable to continue providing those models for free, and so they were removed from the store for now.

Currently we’re debating on what to do with those models in the future, but we’ll make sure to give an update on what happens to them soon. :)

We hope that everyone that already downloaded them enjoys them as they are, and we are sorry for any inconveniences this might have caused.


Minor Army Updates

Today we’re adding a new unit for the Dwarf Guilds, as well as lowering the maximum level that Havoc Brothers Psychics can have, as level 3 is usually reserved for more legendary units. We also removed the Plague Psychic as it seems to be causing some confusion, and to make sure that Disciples of Plague are more in line with the other Havoc Brother Disciples factions.

It also seems that when we did the last major army updates we forgot to change units that had both Ambush and Scout to only have either of them, so we went ahead and fixed those.

Here the full changelog:

Grimdark Future

Dwarf Guilds

  • Added new unit: Weapon Teams

Havoc Brothers

  • Dark Psychics can’t upgrade to level 3 anymore

Disciples of Plague

  • Plague Psychics have been removed (use Dark Psychics + Regeneration instead)

Human Inquisition

  • Spy Assassins now only have Ambush instead of Scout

Wormhole Daemons

  • Plague Swarms now only have Ambush instead of Scout

Age of Fantasy

Disciples of Plague

  • Plague Kings can now update each model with different weapons

Ratmen

  • Assassins now only have Ambush instead of Scout

Grimdark-Daemons


Just a little teaser…

Something new is coming, something cool is coming, but it’s too early to give you the full thing yet, so here is a tiny first glance at it…

Cover-Teaser-GFF-2


That’s it for today’s update. We hope that everyone is doing OK in these strange times and that our games can at least provide some minor relief for you. :)

2D Print Models Released

2D Print, 3D Print, Age of Fantasy, Firefight, Grimdark Future, Skirmish

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got a really cool announcement regarding 2D print models, as well as an update on last month’s 3D print models and the Soul-Snatcher Cults army.


2D Print Models are Live!

Here at OPR we always strive to provide our players with more bang for their buck, which is why we’re happy to announce that from now on we’ll be providing new 2D print models every month. :D

To access them, go here: https://onepagerules.com/2d-print/

 

2d-minis-preview

The models were designed with wargames and RPGs in mind, and with them you can now literally play our games completely for free, not even needing to buy any miniatures to try them out.

Every month we’ll release new models like this:

  • Black & White versions will be available for free
  • Exclusive colored versions will be available on Patreon
  • The original PSDs for customization will also available on Patreon

So for as little as $3 you can get a new set of miniatures every month, and for just $5 you can get a second exclusive colored version too. Then if you really wanna go all out you can get the original PSDs for $10, giving you everything you need to customize your miniatures however you like.

Don’t forget that you’re getting all of these miniatures on top of all of the other stuff you get as a Patreon reward, such as Full Rulebooks, Point Calculators and 3D Models!

To kick things off this month we’re releasing 4 amazing sets, giving you a total of 23 stunning miniatures to play with, featuring the following factions:

Battle Brothers

Soul-Snatcher Cults Rebranding

Finally just a small update on the Soul-Snatchers / Soul-Snatcher Cults

There have been far too many players that have been confused about the Soul-Snatchers, because they couldn’t tell what models they could best use for the army.

In order to make it easier to find them we have renamed them from Soul-Snatchers to Soul-Snatcher Cults, and we’ve also added a new illustration to be army book.

Note that nothing else has changed, all of the rules and point costs are the same, so you don’t have to download the new version of the army book if you don’t mind this. :)

snatcher-cults


That’s it for today’s update. Stay tuned as we’ll be revealing this month’s set of 3D models next week, as well as some other cool stuff…

New Full Rulebooks Released

3D Print, Age of Fantasy, Firefight, Full Rulebooks, Game Update, Grimdark Future, Merch, Skirmish

Hi everyone,

Over the past couple of weeks we’ve been releasing a ton of new stuff with the AI Rules, Campaign Rules, Mission Cards and Tournament Guides, but we’re not stopping there.

Today we’ve got a major update for the Full Rulebooks, as well as some updates to the core rules for all of our games. Let’s dig in!


New Full Rulebooks

Since the initial release of the Full Rulebooks about a year ago we’ve gotten a ton of great feedback from our players, and so over the past couple of months we’ve been working on updating the Full Rulebooks to make them even more awesome.

These new versions of the Full Rulebooks are jam-packed with new and updated content to enhance your games, ranging from smaller things like extra missions and actions, to big total conversions like rules for apocalyptic games or playing with small-scale minis.

Here a list of all the new and updated stuff you will find:

  • New Terrain Placement rules, with 6 placement styles
  • New Side-Missions rules, with 3 play styles and 18 side-missions
  • New Deployment Styles rules, with 6 deployment types
  • New Tactical Points rules, with 15 strategic doctrines
  • Updated Extra Missions rules, with 6 mission types
  • Updates Extra Actions rules, with 2 new actions
  • Updated Solid Buildings rules, now with collateral damage rules
  • Updated Random Events rules, with 18 new events
  • Updated Battlefield Conditions rules, with 6 new conditions
  • Updated Terrain & Objective Effects rules, re-written for clarity
  • Updated Fog of War rules, now with shifting focus and combat fatigue rules
  • Updated Brutal Damage rules, now with friendly fire, mishaps and crits rules
  • Updated Suppression and Fatigue rules, re-balanced for better gameplay
  • Updated Multiplayer Games rules, with 2 new play styles
  • Updated Apocalyptic Games rules, re-written for clarity and playability
  • Updates Small-Scales & Multi-Basing rules, re-written to be easier to play

Just as with the recent Point Calculators update, we’ve also done a major re-working of the layout, as well as adding new diagrams illustrations that show off the miniatures from a top-down perspective, and make things even easier to understand.

So, if you have been on the fence about getting the full rulebooks, or if you already own an older copy of the rulebooks, then we highly recommend that you check out the newest versions by supporting us: patreon.com/onepagerules

Note that we’ve also updated the Basic Rulebooks to reflect these changes, so if you had printed out a copy of those, then you should print out the new versions instead.


Core Rules Updates

As part of the Full Rulebook updates we’ve also gone ahead and updated a couple of the core game rules to enhance playability.

We’re changing how heroes work a little so that now you can use the unit’s quality value if the hero that’s in it has a worse quality. Also we’re making it so that now the hero always uses the defense value of the unit they join (unless they are the last model alive), streamlining the defense rolls process.

Then we found that Indirect weapons felt a little useless, so now you can fire without the -1 to hit penalty as long as you remain stationary. Finally we noticed that because of the short 12″ range on spell blocking, people ended up not really being able to use this mechanic very often, so we increased the range to 18″ to make it a better option.

On the AoF: Regiments front we’ve been struggling with how charges work for a long time, because it was too easy to charge into a unit’s flank even when standing right in front of them. Because of this units may now only pivot before charging, and not during the charge, ensuring that this won’t happen anymore.

Here the full changelog:

General Rules

  • Heroes may use their own morale when joining units, but aren’t forced to anymore
  • Heroes always roll for defense using their unit’s defense value, unless they are the last model alive
  • Indirect shots now only suffer a -1 to hit penalty when moving
  • Spell blocking now has a range of 18″ instead of just 12″

AoF: Regiments

  • Units may only pivot before moving and must move in a straight line when using Rush/Charge.
  • Ambush units must be placed over 12″ away (to avoid rear charges)

Tournament Guides + New T-Shirts

Age of Fantasy, Firefight, Grimdark Future, Merch, Skirmish, Tournament Guide

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got some new game updates, a limit time t-shirt design, as well as a small reminder of all the cool ways you can engage with the community. :)


Tournament Guides

Have you ever wanted to create an OPR tournament over the weekend but didn’t really know where to start? Or are looking for a couple of ways to add more structure to army building and the game rules?

Well then we have you covered with our new Tournament Guides!

For each game you now have a guide on how to create and run small tournaments, as well as some extra rules on how to restrict abusing the army creation rules and other loopholes that we have in the game.

Now let me say that our games were never created with competitive play in mind, so to run a tournament you’ll definitely need a judge that can settle disputes quickly, as there are many things in the game that are not clearly defined.

In any case these guides should come in hand, and we hope you give them a try. :)

Grimdark-Detachments


New T-Shirt Designs

Recently we’ve had some players ask us if we’re going to be adding some new t-shirt designs to our stores, and I’m happy to say that we did!

First off, we have a new awesome limited edition design:

opr-skull

This new design will only be available until the 30th of March, so make sure to get it whilst it’s still available. :D

We also have a couple of other new designs (which you can see below), and as new art is revealed we’re going to keep adding cool new designs to the store.

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

Community Reminders

We’ve got a ton new players on board since the last time we did this, so here are some reminders of all the ways you can connect with the community…

First up, the OPR Newsletter: http://eepurl.com/gBIFer

Make sure to sign up so that you can get monthly updates on all the new things that happen around the project. This is especially useful for those that are unable to keep up with the tons of updates we release every week, and would just like a recap of the highlights for each month.

Then there’s our Discord Server: https://discord.gg/djBydgk

Discord is a great way to connect with the community and if you haven’t checked it out yet you definitely should. Basically it’s a place where you can chat with 300+ other players about tactics, list buildings, hobby progress, 3D printing, and more. It’s also a great way to organise games on Roll20 and TTS, with lots of active players.

We have a new OPR Forum: http://forum.onepagerules.com/

That’s right, out with the old, in with the new! The new forum is hosted on Discourse, and it has a clean new look, plus it automates our Patreon accesses. If you want to share ideas and have longer discussions, then this is the place to go.

Finally you should follow us on all these channels:

Fantasy-Humans


There you go, a short and sweet update today. But next week… oh next week we have something really cool in store for you. :D

Happy Wargaming!

People have been asking for these for a long time now, especially after seeing them being used to great effect in Wyloch’s battle reports. So naturally after talking to him we picked them up, slapped a fresh coat of paint on, and released them to our players.

The dynamic mission cards can be found on the various game pages and are available for all games, so make sure to give them a try next time you play!

Point Calculators + AI Rules Updates

AI Rules, Game Update, Point Calculator

Hi everyone,

Today we’re really happy to announce that we’ve updated our Point Calculators with lots of cool new stuff, plus we’re bringing you one of the many upcoming re-workings of game rules with an update to the Solo AI Rules.


Point Calculators Update

For those of you that are unfamiliar with them, the Point Calculators are booklets with all of the rules and systems we use to create all units in the game, which are available via our Patreon page.

Until now the Point Calculators were pretty cool already, but they felt a little incomplete, especially after the big army updates we did a couple of months ago. So in order to provide our players with the best content we can, we’ve decided to go back and re-work the Point Calculators to bring them to a new glory.

The new versions of the Point Calculators were upgraded with a new layout to make everything clearer to read, as well as having all sections revised to make sure they’re as easy to understand as possible.

On top of that we’ve now added a couple of cool new features:

  • Army Checklist – There’s now a handy checklist in the army creation guidelines that helps you make sure your custom created armies have everything they need to be balanced with all of the official armies in the game.
  • Spell List Creation – We’ve added a new section on how to create your own spell lists and make sure that they’re balanced like the ones from the official armies, as well as the full roster of 35+ spell types that are available in the game.
  • Converting Armies to Firefight/Skirmish – Finally by popular demand there’s also a new section dedicated to how you can convert your custom armies for skirmish games, making sure that you have all the tools you need to play at any game size.

If you’ve always wanted to create your own armies this is the ultimate tool you need in your arsenal, and if you’ve already got the Point Calculator before, then this new version is definitely worth checking out, as it’s the most complete version yet.

The Point Calculators are available only here: www.patreon.com/onepagerules


Solo AI Rules Update

Lately we’ve been working hard at updating a lot of the existing rules, which we’ll be releasing over the next couple of weeks, among other cool new stuff. ;)

Today we’re starting with the Solo AI Rules, which definitely needed an overhaul in terms of how they were written, as well as some other details here and there. We hope that these new versions make it even easier for you to play games against the AI, and if you have any feedback on how we can improve them further please let us know!

Here the full changelog:

  • Overall re-wrote many sections to make them clearer
  • Hybrid units that are moving toward objectives and have no valid targets will now take rush actions instead of advance actions
  • Clarified how to identify enemies that are in the way, and that the AI will consider targets in proximity as valid even if not technically in the way
  • Re-wrote the controlling objectives rules to clarify that non-seized objectives with more friendly non-pinned units than enemies within 3″ already count as controlled
  • Clarified that the advancing rules apply to shooting and hybrid units only
  • AI units with Deadly will now target single-model units first, prioritizing those with the lowest remaining wounds
  • AI units with Indirect now always use Hold actions if they are in range of enemies
  • Firefight/Skirmish: When setting up objectives the table area is now split into 4 instead of 6, and when deploying units and activating them the table are is now split into 2 instead of 3

Open Call for Writers

Finally just a small update regarding the open call for writers!

We’ve received over 40 submissions, which is way more than we could’ve ever hoped for, and we’re really thankful for everyone that participated.

Since there were so many submissions we weren’t able to read them all yet, but we’re going to get back to the writers as soon as we have decided who we’d like to move forward with for our content.

Honestly it’s really hard to let people down, and it’s so cool that we’ve got so many submissions that we’re thinking about how we could maybe get everyone together to make something cool, a sort of community campaign or something.

Anyway, nothing sure yet, but thanks again for all the submissions. :D

Fantasy-Volcanic


That’s it for today, next week we’ve hopefully got some even more exciting things for you, but honestly… there’s going to be lots of cool new stuff for a while now!

Happy Wargaming!
