Open Call for Writers, New Collaboration and More

3D Print, Battle Report, Collaboration, Grimdark Future, Kyoushuneko Miniatures

Hi everyone,

In today’s update we have a great opportunity for those of you that like to write epic stories, a new collaboration for 3D print models, a cool Grimdark Future battle report and finally an update for the forum!


Open Call for Writers

One of the questions we asked during our last Community Survey was if people would be interested in narrative campaigns for our games, which was answered with a very decisive YES from the fans.

Well, if we want to make narrative campaigns, then we’re going to need someone to write all of the cool stories that go into that, recounting heroic deeds and epic battles to the last man.

As you can tell from the little background story blurbs at the beginning of the army lists, we’re not really the best at writing this kind of stuff…

In order to help us get some actual quality stories out there we’re currently looking for writers that would like to work with us, and anyone can apply.

To apply simply send an e-mail with a 150-300 words story set in the Grimdark Future or Age of Fantasy universes to: onepageanon@gmail.com

Make sure to put OPR WRITER at the beginning of the e-mail’s title so that our filter can pick it up, and we’re going to accept applications until the 26th of February.

Anything goes really, so you can send us short stories, battle descriptions, army backgrounds, or whatever else you think can best show off your writing skills.

If you are selected we will contact you for future projects, and here is the deal we are going to offer you for any collaboration:

  • We are going to pay for any content that is going to be distributed commercially, such as Patreon-exclusive content or paid Rulebooks.
  • Any content that is going to be distributed for free is on a voluntary basis, such as community campaigns or similar open content.

This is the first time we’re organizing something like this so things could always change as we move along, but anything we do will always be communicated very clearly.

That’s it, go ahead and send your stories now, we’re looking forward to reading them!

Grimdark-Prime


New Collaboration

Today we’re also really happy to announce that we’ll be collaborating with Kyoushuneko Miniatures to release 3D print fantasy miniatures for Age of Fantasy!

They make really stunning looking fantasy miniatures, which are released via their own Patreon, and they’ve agreed to collaborate with us to provide miniatures specifically designed for our games.

Check out the Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/Kyoushuneko_Miniatures

The way this is going to work is that they provide us with special miniatures, which are going to be exclusive to our patrons in early access for one month, and after that will be made available for free on CGTrader.

So yeah, more models for you every month, sounds pretty great. :D

Grimdark Future Battle Report

The fine folks at Atelier d’un Wargamer have posted up a new Grimdark Future battle report, with a 1450pts slaughter of Prime Brothers vs TAO Coalition.

This battle report is in French, but you can use the auto-translate feature on YouTube to get a semi-reliable translation… and also it’s always fun to just watch things die!


Fan-Made Content Section on the Forum

Finally we wanted to let you all know that we have a new section on the official forum for Fan-Made Content: https://onepagerules.proboards.com/board/39/fan-content

Here you will find cool new takes on our existing games, or even total conversions of the one-offs, such as the bombastic WarMechs conversion of WarFleets.

Make sure to check it out and post your own crazy ideas. :)

Grimdark-Titans


That’s it for today. We’re looking forward to reading all of your story submissions, and we’re going to be releasing some more awesome content next week so get ready!

Happy Wargaming!

3D Print Results + Army Updates

3D Print, Age of Fantasy, Battle Report, Community Survey, Firefight, Game Update, Grimdark Future, Skirmish

Hi everyone,

Today we’re coming back at you with the 3D print survey results, as well as some much needed army updates, and finally a battle report too!


3D Print Survey Results

The 3D print survey results are in, and honestly a lot of stuff was expected, like most people wanting 28mm models, wanting heroes/infantry kits, and being mostly interested in Grimdark Future and Age of Fantasy.

So let’s get to the interesting bit, and instead show you the top 5 armies that players are interested in:

  • Battle Sisters
  • Robot Legions
  • Battle Brothers
  • Alien Hives
  • Machine Cult

Seeing these results we’ve decided that our first miniatures set is going to be for the Battle Sisters, and once we’re done with that we’ll make another poll.

Whilst these 5 were the most requested armies, there were plenty of other armies that all got a couple of votes each, and we think that there’s definitely some value added to not only release models for the most popular armies, but to also try out cool stuff that players don’t necessarily expect.

If this 3D print project goes well and enough people sign up to Tier 3 on Patreon, then we’re going to try and release two sets of miniatures each month, one set for the most popular armies, and one set for some underserved armies (or something completely different and cool).

So what’s next?

Well, we’ve already started working on the Battle Sisters set, which will hopefully be released at the beginning of March, and then everyone can sign up to get the models.

After that we’re going to be making a new survey for the next month’s models, which will again be release at the beginning of the next month, etc.

One thing that’s worthy of notice, we already have some Battle Brothers miniatures available, and we’re going to be re-working them for out CGTrader page. These minis are going to always remain free, just to give people a taste of the quality we provide, as well giving them an opportunity to do some test prints before delving deeper.

Army Updates

This week we’re releasing a very important update, which entails the splitting of various combined armies into individual armies, as well as some other small patches.

For GF/GFF we’re splitting up the Mercenaries into 3 factions, each with their own army illustration as well as a new background story section.

Then we’re also splitting up the Battle Brothers and Prime Brothers into individual factions in response to more and more Prime Brothers models being released, and if we keep them together the list is going to blow up into something gigantic.

We’re also updating the Prime Brothers with new weapons and upgrades, as the list needed some maintenance to keep it up to standard.

For AoF/AoFS we’re splitting up the Dwarves into 3 factions, each with their own army illustration as well as a new background story section.

Splitting up the armies into individual factions is being done in order to avoid rules bloat, to make armies easier to find in the army folder, and also because it makes them easier to implement in something big that’s coming in the future. ;)

Here the full patch notes:

Grimdark Future

Dwarf Guilds

  • Heroes with Jetpacks now ignore the Slow rule

Havoc Brother Disciples

  • Change Brothers now have AP(1) on their Assault Rifles

Mercenaries

  • Split armies into single factions: Human Inquisition, Elven Jesters, Feudal Guard

Prime Brothers

  • Added new unit: Grave Captain
  • Heroes have more ranged and melee upgrades now
  • Re-worked Auto-Rifles to have 3 attacks
  • Prime Brothers can now swap any Auto-Rifle for a Rifle or Precision Rifle
  • Prime Brothers can take Grenade Launcher Auto-Rifle attachments
  • Raider Squads now come with Heavy Pistols
  • Elimination Squads can now upgrade with Laser Rifles

Age of Fantasy

Dwarves

  • Split armies into single factions: Dwarves, Volcanic Dwarves, Sky-City Dwarves

High Elves

  • Elf Princes can now be upgraded with Wizard(1)

Grimdark-Inquisition


Age of Fantasy: Skirmish – Solo AI Batrep

Finally because this is something we don’t get so often, Sad and Lonely Gamer has posted up another excellent solo AI batrep, this time playing AoF: Skirmish.

The match features a quick and bloody skirmish of Eternal Wardens vs Orcs, make sure to check it out and subscribe to his channel!


That’s it for today, but that’s in no way all we have to offer, and there’s so many new exciting things coming soon that we just can’t wait to share… but we still have to!

Happy Wargaming!

3D Print Survey + Battle Reports

3D Print, Age of Fantasy, Battle Report, Community Survey, Grimdark Future, Play Tokens, The Makers Cult

Hi everyone,

Today we got something really exciting for you regarding 3D print models, as well as a bunch of new battle reports for you to watch.


3D Print Models

During the community survey there were a lot of people asking us if we could provide 3D print models as part of our offering, which had us very surprised, so we went around and asked some 3D model makers for possibilities to collaborate.

Well here we are just a few weeks later, and the fine folks at The Makers Cult have offered to help us out (you might know them from some of the awesome battle brothers miniatures they already made for us).

So now the plan we have is to follow the same development cycle that they have to provide you with awesome minis every month. :D

This is how it will work:

  • Tier 3 patrons receive new 3D print models every month
  • Patreon supporters vote on what models we make next
  • Old models get cycled out and are made available via CGTrader

Right now we’re planning on each month’s release to be either a single cool miniature (like a hero or vehicle), or a kit to put together a squad (with multiple weapons), but as we get more experience we could start experimenting with other stuff.

Take the 3D print survey: https://forms.gle/VsW6sSwPBDbC1NPp7

Tier 3 is just $5 more than Tier 2, however don’t upgrade your pledge just yet, as we’ll only be starting this new cycle once the first batch of models is ready. Once everything is in place we’ll make an announcement, and then you can get your hands on those sweet sweet miniatures.

This is a really exciting opportunity, and we’re looking forward to seeing where we go with this. If the demand is high enough this could be opening the doors towards a ton of new stuff we could be doing, so keep your eyes peeled!

Note that all of the existing Battle Brothers heroes and infantry models we released will remain completely free of charge for everyone.

Battle Reports Galore!

First up we have an awesome new Grimdark Future battle report from Wyloch Plays, with an epic 5500pts clash of Alien Hives vs Wormhole Daemons.

Then we’ve had lots of people ask for more Age of Fantasy battle reports, so here’s an awesome Havoc War Disciples vs Ogres match from Sad and Lonely Gamer.

Finally we have another great solo batrep for Grimdark Future, this time it’s a heated battle of Orc Marauders vs Change Wormhole Daemons.


3D Print Tokens

For all of you 3D print fans we also have a new set of 3D print tokens shared by Grabbit, which should look pretty awesome on the table once you paint them up.

Get them here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4146337

We’d also like to add that if you make any 3D print models for our games feel free to share them with us, and we’ll make sure to highlight them in these news posts.

That’s it for today, please make sure to fill out the survey and we’ll make sure to provide you with the most awesome miniatures we can. :D

Happy Wargaming!

Help Wyloch Out!

Battle Report, Grimdark Future

Hi everyone,

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

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

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

 

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

 

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

Thank you!

2019 in Review

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

Hi everyone,

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

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

So, let’s dig in to some numbers! :D

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

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

monthly traffic

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

countries.PNG

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

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

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

patreon

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

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

newsletter.PNG

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

opr-shop-1

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

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

discord.PNG

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

miniatures.PNG

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

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

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

Happy new year!

All Armies Updated!!!

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

Hi everyone,

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

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

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

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

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

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

Elves Clash, Battle Report and Wave 2 Update

AI Rules, Battle Report, Grimdark Future, Quickplay Armies

Hi everyone,

Today we have just a quick update for you.

We’re still very focused on the Wave 2 update and have received lots of feedback from you, all of which has been very helpful. If you spot any point costs missing or typos please let us know, we’re super grateful for all of your inputs!


Quickplay Armies – Elves Clash in Space

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

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

High Elf Fleets

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

Dark Elf Raiders

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

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

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

Grimdark-Raiders


Grimdark Future Battle Report

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

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

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

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


Wave 2 Update

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

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

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

Fantasy-Havoc


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

Happy Wargaming!

First Official Miniature, Battle Report, Discord, Roll20 & more!

3D Print, Battle Report, Collaboration, Grimdark Future, The Makers Cult

Hi peeps,

These are really crazy times for OPR, the project is growing, we are getting more collaborations done, and best of all we have a ton of content coming your way!

First Official OPR Miniature

It’s incredible that we’ve come this far, but it’s actually real, we have the first official miniature created for OPR!

Hero Render 1

This awesome Battle Brother Champion was created by the folks over at The Makers Cult and was inspired by the cover art for Grimdark Future.

He is posed just like on the cover art, holding his mighty Energy Sword in the air signaling the allied ships to strike from above.

Get the miniature here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3794182

Hero Render 3

If you don’t know The Makers Cult you should definitely give them a look, they make awesome miniatures for 3D print and we already worked on the Feudal Guard with them (see last week’s post about that here).

There’s going to be more options added to the champion in the near future so you can clad him with a cape, give him a helmet or arm him with different weapons.

We’ll make sure to keep you up to date as new stuff is released, so stay tuned. ;)

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

Grimdark Future Battle Report

Next up Wyloch’s Armory released yet another awesome battle report up on YouTube, this time showing off 4000pts of Titan Lords vs High Elf Fleets.

This is an absolutely epic battle, with 3 massive Titans stomping around a city scape and blasting elves into oblivion. Wyloch also used a couple of interesting house rules, so make sure to check it out for some inspiration!

Discord Server (unofficial)

Some people have been asking for a Discord Server for a while now, but unfortunately we’ve never been able to get the time and resources to properly run one ourselves.

Well fret not, because there is now an unofficial OPR discord server!

Join the fun here: discord.gg/krMaj7k

For those that are unfamiliar with Discord, it’s a free text/video chat platform where players can get together to discuss their favorites games.

There is a really handy app for mobile that you can use to chat whilst on the go, and it’s also a great way to just talk to other players whilst getting some painting done.

Roll20 Playroom

On a somewhat related note we wanted to let you know that there’s a Roll20 playeroom that we creatd a while ago which we generally use for testing purposes.

If you want to use it you can, it’s open for everyone. :)

Play with us here: app.roll20.net/join/764436/-QBVdw

For those that are unfamiliar with Roll20, it’s a free tabletop simulator which can be used to play anything from RPG’s to miniature wargames.

It’s a really cool platform because it allows you to quickly put together games with people from all around the world and fight some epic battles.

Upcoming Content

Lately there’s a ton of new content that we’ve been working on, and it’s getting so much that we can’t realistically continue with the monthly updates without overwhelming players.

Because of that we decided that for a little while we’re going to be releasing new content on a weekly basis, hopefully giving you some time to digest each awesome new thing before moving onto the next.

So, what exactly can you look forward to?

Here’s just a few of the things that are coming at you: brand new play tokens, skirmish campaign rules, a new set of new armies for fantasy skirmish, solo play AI rules, a set of new armies for grimdark firefight, and much much more…

Summer Holidays

Finally I wanted to let you know that over the next couple of weeks I’ll be going on vacation here and there for a few days as well as travel around europe, so I might not be as responsive as usual.

I’m sorry for any inconvenience this might cause and hopefully nothing burns down whilst I’m gone! :P

**********

That’s it for today folk’s, hope you like everything we brought you today and are looking forward to all of the cool new stuff that’s coming up next.

Happy Wargaming!

  2. How does OPR work?
  3. General rules updates
  4. Full Rulebook updates
  5. New factions for Grimdark Future
  6. Army updates for all games

1. GRIMDARK FUTURE BATTLE REPORT

Let’s start this off with a bang!

Wyloch’s Armory posted another exellent battle report on Youtube showing a re-match between Battle Brothers and Wormhole Daemons. There have been a lot of updates for the daemons since the last time they squared off, so tune in to see if this time around they can come out on top…

2. HOW DOES OPR WORK?

Since the release of the updated Full Rulebooks the project has grown a lot, so first off I’d like to welcome everyone that’s new on board! :)

Just looking at the Patreon stats alone you can see that the number of supporters has grown exponentially (by 72.6% over the past 3 months), which is really great and gives us an extra boost to work on the project.

patreon growth

This is what we call awesome!

Now, having a lot of new people also means that there are a lot of questions and doubts about how exactly OPR works, and who can blame them for it? We never really formally explained how the project works and just assumed people would figure it out, so of course they are confused.

In order to mitigate this we have updated all of the game pages on the website to contain a short description of how OPR works so that people know what they’re getting into.

Anyway, here it is for your enjoyment:

OPR is a project made by gamers for gamers and it can only exist thanks to the generous support of our awesome community. All of our core games are free, we provide weekly updates on what’s new and we post monthly releases for major game updates.

3. GENERAL RULES UPDATES

For the general rules we have 2 major changes and 1 minor change.

Major Change 1 – In Grimdark Future/Age of Fantasy units that are Pinned/Wavering now automatically fail morale tests. What this means is that now you can do killer-combos by Pinning/Wavering units with shooting and then charging into melee for an easy kill. This change adds a new interplay between shooting and melee and we can’t wait to see players take full advantage of this to crush their opponents.

Major Change 2 – In Firefight/Skirmish models now accumulate wounds which makes them likelier to be Knocked Out and models that are Stunned don’t immediately count as activated anymore. What this means is that now units will be easier to kill over time so it’s less likely to have “unkillable” enemies. The change to the Stunned rules on the other hand make the rule more uniform with the large-battle games and also makes it so that units aren’t out of the match of too long.

Minor Change – Poison now deals +2 hits instead of just +1 hit. Whilst going over the Point Calculator we noticed that Poison was overcosted for what it did and lacked some of that oomph we look for in our special rules. If you have units with Poison in your army I’m sure you’re going to appreciate this change. ;)

Grimdark Future & Age of Fantasy

  • Re-written the morale test section to make it clearer
  • Pinned/Wavering units now automatically fail morale tests
  • Poison now deals +2 hits instead of just +1 hit

Firefight & Skirmish

  • Models now accumulate wounds which make them easier to be KO’d over time
  • Stunned models don’t immediately count as activated anymore

4. FULL RULEBOOK UPDATES

This one is more for our Patreon supporters, but we thought we’d put it in here just so you guys know that the Full Rulebooks aren’t stagnant.

I’m not going to go too deep into them, but mostly these are small adjustments to make the advanced rules more balanced, as well as clarifying what might’ve been a little unclear.

If you aren’t supporting out Patreon yet definitely give it a look, we add a ton of extra content there that you don’t wanna miss out on: patreon.com/onepagerules

Full Rulebooks

  • Immobilized results now give -2″/-4″ movement
  • Take Aim has been re-named to Aimed Fire
  • Clarified that Heavy Charge has a max. charge move of 6″
  • Heroic Inspiration now has a range of 12″

5. NEW FACTIONS FOR GRIMDARK FUTURE

These 2 new armies are straight out of the community survey, as they are some of the most requested things for Grimdark Future for a long time now. We’re happy to finally introduce to you the Infected Colonies and Rebel Guerrillas.

Infected Colonies are typically human settlements that have been infected by a mysterious virus which mutates them into blood-hungry warriors. Those that have been infected are categorized into different stages, with each stage having a different effect on the mutated subject.

Rebel Guerrillas are freedom fighters that can be found everywhere throughout the Sirius sector. These bands of warriors usually consist of rebels from all races and species, which have banded together to fight against their oppressors.

Both of these armies are very thematic and fun to play, and you can use models from all manufacturers for them:

  • Infected Colonies lend themselves well for conversions since you can take regular soldiers and make them look diseased with greenstuff.
  • Rebel Guerrillas are great to pick models from different collections and band them together into a cohesive force (a uniform paint scheme definitely helps).

6. ARMY UPDATES FOR ALL GAMES

Finally we come to probably the biggest part of the update (as if what we’ve shown so far wasn’t big enough), which is the army updates for all games.

I’m going to try and keep this one short because I’ve already dragged on for too long, so here’s just a few highlights.

New Vehicles for Prime Brothers & Machine Cult – With many people ramping up their collections lately (huh, wonder why), we decided to add a couple more vehicles to help you out in massive battles. We’ve also given Titan Lords some new fancy upgrades btw.

Undead armies split into 3 factions – In order to reduce the amount of page flipping that comes from having different types of undead of different pages we decided to split the Undead up. All units are still there and we’ve actually re-vamped the Ghostly Undead with a lot of new special rules.

GF Video Batrep & 51 New Units Highlight

Battle Report, Grimdark Future

Hi there,

Today we’d like to share another great video batrep that Wyloch’s Armory posted on YouTube, as well as highlight the last major update where we added 51 new units.

We’re not sure why but it seems that many of you have missed that we added 51 new units and updated 17 armies, which is an unprecedented amount of content for OPR.

This update came out 2 weeks ago and you can read more about it here: https://onepagerules.com/2019/05/30/well-this-happened

Now that the highlight is done let’s get to the good stuff, namely the newest video batrep featuring Wormhole Daemons and Battle Brothers. This is an interesting battle because all of the Daemons arrive via Ambush, which changes up the regular gameplay since they can pop-up from anywhere on the battlefield.

It’s also really cool to see a Daemons battle report because it has given us a lot of inspiration to keep working on this army, so you can expect a major update for them soon. There’s also a thread about it on the forum if you have any suggestions, so check it out: http://onepagerules.proboards.com/thread/1164/suggestions-wormhole-daemons-workover

If you’d like to submit your own batrep for everyone to see just shoot me an e-mail: onepageanon@gmail.com.

Cheers!

– Gaetano
