Game Updates + Batreps

2D Print, Game Update, Video Content

Hi everyone,

This week has been yet again super busy, as we’ve celebrated OPR’s 7 year anniversary!

Apart from that I’ve been working hard on more games stuff, and I’m currently re-working the AI rules, plus some exciting new gaming content for all of our games which will be released on Patreon every month. With the re-working of the AI rules I’m also looking into adding a version of the AI rules for FTL as well, plus maybe some campaign rules too.

Anyways, more about all that stuff soon, now on to the update!


Ogres Update

Continuing with our weekly army updates, this week we’ve re-worked the Ogres army list.

The goals of this update are to make hunters and special units more interesting, as well as making the monsters and chariots more customizable to avoid wasted costs. I don’t think it’s a huge change, especially when compared to other armies we’ve recently updated, but I think that these small tweaks will help make the army more interesting and some of the heavier units more playable.

Here’s all the updates:

  • Added new unit: Hunters
  • Warchief and Champion have 2 new unit buffing rules
  • Hunt Master now has Ambush and Hunter
  • Shaman’s Fire Blessing is now a unit buffing rule
  • Iron Warriors now have Stone Bones (which gives AP-1 now)
  • Devourers now have the Devour rule
  • Giant Bison now has 6 attacks and re-worked upgrades
  • Ice Mammoth now has Frost and re-worked upgrades
  • Re-worked chariots into a single Heavy Chariot unit

Unit & Army Templates

Since we shared the point calculator via Patreon, we made some unit and army templates available for players to be able to put together their armies more easily. However, we’ve also been getting a lot of requests from other players, who would like to use a template simply to organize their lists better, and unit cards to have cool game aids on the table.

Well, it’s time to rejoice everyone, because we’ve just added both the army templates and the unit card templates to the expansions folder for each game. Just follow the links on the game pages to access these and enjoy. :)


New 2D Minis – Artisans Gang

This week we shared a new set of awesome 2D models on Patreon, check them out!


New Battle Reports

First off, we’ve got an insane 13,000pts battle report from Wyloch’s Armory, showcasing some massive Titan Lords duking it out for glory!

Then we’ve got a solo battle report by Sad and Lonely Gamer, who is testing out a variant of the AI rules which uses cards to randomize activations, definitely worth checking out!


That’s it for today, not a huge update, but full of cool stuff. See you again next week. :)

Happy Wargaming!

I QUIT (my other job)

2D Print, 3D Print, Collaboration, Game Update, Podcast

Hi everyone,

As many of you already know, OPR is run fully and solely by one person, which is me (hi!).

For the past 7 years I’ve been working on OPR in my free time, and have never paid myself a single cent from the money we made via subscriptions or store sales. In my mind I’ve always seen that money as a vote of confidence on your part, and it felt wrong to take that money for myself when I could instead invest it into providing you all with more content.

That was all very easy to manage whilst OPR was pretty small, but over the last few years the project has skyrocketed in popularity and has grown to be one of the top 10 biggest wargaming Patreons in the world, and by now this is in no way a one-man project anymore. Whilst I still take care of the majority of things, there are lots of people I hire to do stuff that I can’t, such as all of the awesome illustrations, paper miniatures and 3D print miniatures, and by now there are 10-15 people involved in OPR’s production every month.

I tried as hard as I could to keep doing this in my free time whilst still working a full-time job, which admittedly has not been very good for my own health over the past year, and so I’ve decided to finally pull the trigger and quit my job to dedicate myself to OPR full-time. By now OPR brings in enough money that I can pay myself a regular salary without having to feel guilty about compromising on releases, so don’t worry about things slowing down.

If anything, this means that I’ll now have more time to dedicate myself to OPR without going absolutely insane, and hopefully I’ll be able to improve my work-life balance as well, which has been suffering for too long now. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to do this, and hope that I can continue to provide you all with awesome games, miniatures, and more in the future. Thank you all for your support!

Alright, enough of that now, let’s get to the meat of this news post. :)


New Army Updates

Today we’re continuing with our army refresh updates, tackling the Infected Colonies. Until now this army was serviceable, but was lacking some oomph, with most units feeling very samey. In this new version we’ve overhauled the majority of units in the army, and have also added an army-wide Undead special rule to spice things up.

Here’s the full changelog:

  • Added new unit: Runners
  • All units now have the Undead rule
  • Hunter Champion and Hunters lost Fast but gained Ambush
  • Infected Champion now has Plague Command
  • Scientists can now upgrade to Psychic(2)
  • Zombies now have Regeneration
  • Infected Dogs now have Scout and Rending
  • Boomers now have more attacks and Poison
  • Chelonians now have more attacks and new upgrades
  • Infected Swarms now have Strider and Blast(3)
  • Ravens now have an additional AP(1) attack
  • Vultures now have Ambush and new upgrades

Speaking of the Undead rule, over time we’ve found that this has become one of the most valuable special rules in the game, and that it gave a little bit too much staying power to your units. In order to balance things out a little, units now take wounds from Undead on rolls of 1-2, instead of only on rolls of 1.

Here’s all of the armies that have been updated:

  • Grimdark – Havoc Brother Disciples
  • Fantasy – Ghostly Undead
  • Fantasy – Mummified Undead
  • Fantasy – Ossified Undead
  • Fantasy – Shadow Stalkers
  • Fantasy – Vampiric Undead

OnePageFools Podcast – Episode 3

The latest episode of the unofficial OPR podcast is available now, this time featuring none other than Ethan Seward, the brilliant illustrator behind all of our paper miniatures!

New Free Models on Cults 3D

Get the models here: https://cults3d.com/en/users/onepagerules/creations


Patreon News

On the Patreon side of things, this week we released the final chapter of Darkness Within, our Age of Fantasy narrative campaign, which will be available exclusively on Patreon until the end of March. If you are interested in reading an awesome story set in the AoF universe, or are looking for new ways to play, make sure to check it out!

This week we also released our third set of Hive City Gangs paper miniatures, with the Miners Gang. The miniatures feature gangers with different mining equipment and weapons, as well as two trusty canine sidekicks.

This month our friends at Bite the Bullet were so kind to provide all of our Tier 2 patrons with an extra model as a free gift, with the fierce Kalista the Gladiator.

Find out more here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/48494745

Finally, speaking of 3D models, this week we’ve added two sets of themed bases for Dwarves and Battle Sisters, so all of our supporters can enjoy a total of 88 unique bases!

Happy Wargaming!

Army Updates, Batrep + More

2D Print, 3D Print, Collaboration, Game Update, Video Content, Writing Jam

Hi everyone,

This past week I have been extremely busy, spending most of my time on the overhaul of the arena games. I have now converted all 13 existing warbands into the new system, and have been playtesting them every day, trying to further refine and optimize the system. Depending on how it goes there will be a public version available by the end of the month, so here’s hoping!

Aside from that I’ve also spent some time working on some minor army updates, plus the preparation of a bunch of stuff that was released via Patreon this week.

Anyway, let’s get to the actual updates!


OPR Writing Jam #2 – Sign Up Now!

Did you always want to share the stories of your glorious army? Or maybe expand on the lore of our games with your own spin on things? Well then join us for next week’s jam!

The OPR writing jam is a 48hrs story writing marathon, where participants are asked to write a one-page story set to a common theme, which is revealed at the start of the jam. Once the 48hrs have passed the stories go public, and everyone gets to vote for their favorite one.

The writing jam takes place from February 19th to February 21st, it’s completely free to join, and you can sign up here.

Check out the last OPR Writing Jam to get a better idea of how it works, and read all of the 13 awesome stories written by our community!


Minor Army Updates

Today we’ve updated the Saurian and Robot Legion armies, adding some new weapon options to go with some of our new cool models. Additionally we have tweaked the Beastmen army, making Ambush optional on some of the core units so that they can be a little more competitive.

Here’s the changelog:

  • Robot Legions – Annihilator Overseers can now be upgraded with Heavy Gauss Cannons
  • Beastmen – Ambush is now optional for units of Hunters, Warriors and Raiders
  • Saurians – Guardians can now replace their Halberds with Great Weapons

Minor FTL Update

Today we’ve also updated the rules for FTL, fixing an oversight in the ramming rules. Now ships are pushed when rammed by ships of the same size or higher, instead of only when being rammed by bigger ships, which gives ramming a nice boost.

We also would like to remind everyone that this is the last month that the Full Rulebook for FTL is available on Patreon, so make sure to grab it now before it goes up in price!


2 New Free 3D Models (17 Total)

With a new month and a new release, we’ve also added 2 new models for free to our 3DCults Page. Make sure to download the Gecko and Robot Guardian for a test print!


Patreon News

This week has seen quite a few new releases, with a new chapter of Darkness Within, as well as some 2D hero models to go with it, plus a new 2D gang with The Brutes.

On the 3D side of things we’ve got a new collaboration going with Dragon Trapper’s Lodge, who were so kind to give us a free model and a special discount for their anniversary.

If you’re not supporting OPR on Patreon already then you’re missing out. Support us at the $5 tier to get $50+ worth of content, or at the $10 tier to get $100+ worth of content!


Grimdark Future: Firefight – Solo Batrep


That’s it for this week, we’ll see you next week for the writing jam!

BIG Warfleets: FTL Updates & More!

2D Print, Game Update, New Release, Video Content

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got some small game updates for you, some big changes for warfleets, some new models, a new one-off game and even a battle report.

Let’s get to it!


Game Updates

Today we’ve updated a 30+ army lists in order to provide some much needed hotfixes, clearing up some confusing rules, as well as tweaking a couple of units and special rules.

Here’s all the changes:

GF & AoF – Multiple Armies

  • Rules that allow units to block spells as if they were Psychic/Wizard now get +2 to block
  • Rules that allow units to repair damage now work on 2+ instead of 4+
  • Shield Wall rule now only works when all models have the rule

GF – Robot Legions

  • Tri-Scorpion Pistoleer now has Ambush and Hunter, but only Tough(3)

GF & AoF – Havoc Brothers / Havoc Warriors

  • Added new unit: Furies

Warfleets: FTL Update

As previously announced, we’ve been secretly working on a D6 version of Warfleets: FTL for a couple of months now, and today we’re very happy to release the game for everyone.

Even though we think that the 2D6 version of the game was awesome in its own right, the actual gameplay ended up being a little bit slower and more mathy then our original vision. By switching to a D6 based system, we’re making the game much faster and more cinematic, without sacrificing any of the strategy.

With this we are considering the bulk of the game to be done, and the Full Rulebook is going to be released for everyone in March. If you want the Full Rulebook (plus much more) right now, then you can get it by supporting us on Patreon.

We know that a lot of you like the 2D6 version, so we’re doing two things to keep you happy:

  • The current 2D6 version will remain available on our website until the 31st of January for you to download. It comes in a .zip with all of the core rules, faction book and the basic rulebook. Make sure to download it by clicking here before it’s gone.
  • We’ve updated the Orion’s Gate rules to be more in line with all of the improvements from FTL, and they’re available for download in the One-Off Games section. These rules are not going to be removed, meaning that a 2D6 battleships game is always going to be available for you.

Give the game a try, we think you’re going to love it! ;)


Soul Forge Studio

Speaking of Warfleets: FTL, as many of you know, a few months back we release a few sets of 3D Spaceships, which were made by the talented Danny Cyanide.

Well, over the past few months Danny been running his own Patreon called Soul Forge Studio, which focuses on releasing awesome BFG style ships, which are fully modular!

Check it out: https://www.patreon.com/soulforgestudio


2D Ratmen Clans & Xenos Fleet

This week we’ve also released two new paper minis sets with the Ratmen Clans and the Xenos Fleet, which are available for download on Patreon.

As a side-note, with this release we’ve also added the Ratmen Clans warband to arena season 3, and we’re currently working on generally streamlining and improving the game. We will be postin more info on that soon, so keep your eyes peeled arena fans!


Little Dice Wars

Whilst looking through our archive we found an old game we made called Little Dice Wars, which is an adaptation of Little Wars by H. G Wells, so that it’s playable with modern miniatures and dice, instead of using lead soldiers and firing toy guns.

For those of you that are unfamiliar with Little Wars, this is the game that basically started it all. It’s the grandaddy of modern miniature games and laid the foundations for most of the wargames you play today.

We’re sure that some of you will appreciate this little game and after playing it a couple times it actually has some really interesting mechanics that you don’t see in modern wargames (no dice rolling for infantry combat, taking prisoners of war, what?!).

Download the rules in the One-Off Games section!


One Page Fools on YouTube

Did you know that there’s an OPR podcast? Well now that it’s on YouTube make sure to subscribe so that you don’t miss out on the latest episode!


Grimdark Future Batrep

Last but not least, Sad and Lonely Gamer has posted a new Grimdark Future Solo-Batrep, this time featuring 1500pts of HDF vs 2000pts of High Elf Fleets. Very interesting match!


That’s it for today, come back next week for a new chapter of Darkness Within, as well as previews for what will be released in the coming months!

Happy Wargaming!

Dungeons & Glory, OPR Podcast, Holiday Sale + More

2D Print, 3D Print, New Release, Painting Contest, Podcast

Hi everyone,

Hope you’re having happy holidays and are able to spend some time with your loved ones. I’ll try to keep today’s update as brief as possible to not steal too much of your time, come watch me fail!

Let’s get to it…


December Painting Contest – Voting

First up, a community vote!

The submissions are in, and now it’s time to vote for your favorite paintjobs. :)

Vote here: https://forms.gle/Z42WZShLupMgsxCP7

Good luck to all participants!


Dungeons & Glory Available Now

A long long time ago, we had started working on a very early draft of a one-page RPG called Dungeons & Glory, which aimed at streamlining RPG mechanics into a super simple and beginner-friendly format.

Over the past few weeks I’ve been testing out a lot of different RPG systems with a few of my friends, and decided to pick up the old D&G again, and give it another shot. This has lead to a complete re-working of the core system, as well as the addition of a useful GM guide, which introduces lots of different things to play around with.

Right now we’re planning on keeping this system as a one-off game, but who knows, one day it may very well lead to the creation of the infamous OPRPG…

Get the game here: https://onepagerules.com/portfolio/one-off-games/


OnePageFools Podcast

The world of OPR seems to be ever-expanding, and now community members Jimbo and Lucas have put together a new podcast dedicated to all things OPR called OnePageFools!

Listen, like and follow here:


Jakob’s Path + Heroes

December is the last month in which our Grimdark Future narrative campaign Jakob’s Path is going to be available on Patreon, and as a special treat we have now released 2D models for all of the campaign’s heroes, which are fully compatible with our previously released Battle Brothers and Orc Marauders models!

Get the models here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/43388556


Saurians + AoF: Arena Season 2

With this week’s release of the Saurians 2D Army Pack, we’ve added the Saurians warband to AoF:A S02, and with this the season has been completed!

It’s really cool to see that now with each arena game having 6 hex boards, 6 warbands and 2 common assets, the game feels a lot more complete, and allows for a ton of match ups.

There’s also the warband creation rules, which allow you to use any and all miniatures you have as well, and we’re looking forward to seeing how people use the system to add all sorts of crazy warbands!

Get the rules and models here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/43388556

Note that the warbands are designed to be compatible with WHU miniatures, and with an upcoming lizard warband we’ll make sure to update the Saurian’s warband composition rules to make them compatible if needed.


Holiday Sale on MMF

Looking to get some more christmas presents?

You can now get 50% off everything in our MMF store by using code OPRXMAS50!

https://www.myminifactory.com/users/onepagerules

Note: Promotion valid from 15th of December to 1st of January.


Finally, I usually don’t do this, but I feel like I need to address you all directly.

This year has been a very rough one for everyone. Many of us have been going through a lot of hard stuff that frankly nobody deserved. We’ve seen family and friends die, become gravely ill, lose their jobs, their house, their mental heath, their dreams, their future, and many fates worse than that.

I know that I’m just some random guy on the internet, and that I can’t change any of the things that happened, but I hope that this project has helped at least some of you see some light in the dark. I’ve been steering this ship by myself for many years now, but this year has been something else, and I’ve pushed myself as hard as I could to bring you all as much gaming content as possible to hopefully keep you distracted for at least a moment.

Gaming has always been a means for me to get together with family and friends to have a laugh, and I think there’s nothing that we need more than the people we love near us in these times of isolation. If you or someone you know could use some time off this pandemic, and you think that gaming could help them, then please share this project with them. All of the games are free, there are free models, and we have a lovely community that can help you get set up for playing online if needed.

I have been incredibly fortunate to be able to turn my dreams into a reality, but I know that there are many people out there that haven’t been as lucky as me. I’ve spent many years of my life going through a lot of difficult things, and I know what it feels like to be looking up from rock bottom and see no hope. I feel a huge responsibility towards everyone that has supported the project to make the most out of it and provide everyone with as much value as I possibly can. I hope that in this I have succeeded.

From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank everyone that has believed in the project, and I hope that I can keep putting a smile on your face for many more years to come.

With all my love,
Gaetano

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.

Find out more by clicking here…


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 Brutes – Combat Stimmers, Forge Natives, Berserkers, Pet Crocodiles

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!

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

Community Survey, Game Updates + More

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

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got the latest Community Survey, some Game Updates, brand new Arena Game Covers, a collaboration with White Werewolf Tavern and a new set of Cthulu Cult miniatures.

Let’s get to it!


Community Survey

It’s that time of the year again, and every one is invited to take part in our community survey, where we ask you a bunch of questions that will help share the future of OPR!

Take the survey here: https://forms.gle/Z4jVCbYuXbQoi91K9

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

Barry makes really cool comics set in the world of Phineus, and if you support him on Patreon you not only get early access to his upcoming comics, but also to bonus comics that are not available on the main site for free!

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:

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!

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!
