New Collaboration + Releases

2D Print, 3D Print, Age of Fantasy, Collaboration, Manuel Boria, Starter Sets, Thingiverse

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got an awesome new collaboration, some updates on the Vile Rattus, a new free 3D print model, and the release of a starter set for Age of Fantasy.


Collaboration with Manuel Boria

This month we’ve got a special treat for you in terms of 3D models, as we’ve partnered up with the amazing Manuel Boria, who makes awesome models for wargames and RPGs. His models are available on Patreon, MyMiniFactory and Thingiverse, and they are an absolute treat! :D

If you’ve never heard of him and are interested in fantasy miniatures, then you should definitely check his stuff out. Not only does he make really epic heroes and warriors, but also really adorable monster cubs.

Make sure to check him out here: https://www.patreon.com/Manuel_Boria 

As part of this collaboration he has provided us with a stunning Gnoll Warrior, which you can grab now on Patreon by following this link: https://www.patreon.com/posts/gnoll-warrior-by-40117707

Note that this model is going to be available on the OPR Patreon until the 30th of August, after which it will only be available on Manuel Boria’s Patreon.

To give you an example of how easily his models can be used to play our games, here are some Quickplay Armies for AoF: Skirmish using Gnolls (Beastmen) vs Kobolds (Halflings).

Gnolls (Beastmen)

Kobolds (Halflings)

The models can of course be used for any other games, for example WarStuff, or even Deathball with just a few sports-related modifications. The sky is the limit with these amazing models! :D


Vile Rattus Cult

If you missed the Kickstarter Campaign for the Vile Rattus Cult fret not, because That EvilOne has now put up all of these rat-tastic models up for sale on CGTrader, which you can check out by clicking HERE.


Free Fanatic Sisters Model

This week we released yet another free model on Thingiverse, this time a battle-ready Fanatic Sister.

Get the model here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4561112

If you want to help us out please make sure to give the model a like, thanks! :)


Island of Doom – AoF Starter Set

Since the release of the Battle for Magellan-2 Starter Set players have been asking us to make similar starter sets for our other games, and this week we’re happy to release the Island of Doom starter set.

This starter set contains the core rules, 12 unit stat cards, two complete paper armies with 43 miniatures, 11 flat terrain pieces and a set of 106 play tokens, making for an awesome starter package.

If you’re interested you can get this starter set for just $4.99 by clicking HERE.

These starter sets don’t have multiple army colors or terrain seasons like you get on Patreon, so the best deal is still to subscribe there, but they should hopefully give more players a new way to find and try out our games. :)


That’s it for today, make sure to tune in next week for some game updates and more releases.

Happy Wargaming!

TONS OF UPDATES AND RELEASES

2D Print, 3D Print, Age of Fantasy, Collaboration, Firefight, Game Update, Grimdark Future, Ilhadiel, Quickplay Armies, Regiments, Skirmish, ThatEvilOne

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got so much new stuff for you that we don’t even know where to begin!

In today’s update you’ll find news about the release of a new narrative campaign, a huge balance update that’s affecting most armies, more updates on specific armies, new 2D and 3D models, and much much more.

Over this past week we’ve also been running a community campaign, but honestly with so much stuff in today’s update we don’t think it’s the right time to share the results yet, as they deserve a biggest spotlight. Because of this you can expect the results next week.

Anyway, let’s get the show on the road!


Jakob’s Path: Chapter 1

Something that players have been asking us for a long time is to provide more narrative for our games, involving epic stories of battles and heroes across the worlds we’ve built.

Well, the time has finally come, and this week we’re super happy to release the first chapter of our first Grimdark Future narrative campaign: Jakob’s Path.

Jakob’s Path is a narrative campaign for Grimdark Future, which is being released in 5 chapters. Each chapter continues the story and features 2 new missions for you to play. Whilst the campaign was written with Battle Brothers vs Orc Marauders in mind, it can be played with any other factions and whatever models you have.

Chapter 1 begins the adventure with Jakob and his Battle Brothers landing on the mysterious planet of Zeloria-M5, looking to neutralize any Orc Marauders that inhabit it. Little did they know that they would find much more than just some pesky greenskins on the planet…

Download the chapter here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/34546818  

Note that you must be a Tier 2 patron to access to the link above.

This campaign is going to be available exclusively on Patreon until all 5 chapters have been released, after which it will go up for sale on our WargameVault Store at a higher price. 

The story was written by Gabriela Rebelo who took part in the writer’s submission challenge, and you can expect more narrative campaigns in the future written by other people that submitted their stories!


Battle Sisters Army Pack

For our line of 2D print models this week we’ve release the Battle Sisters army pack.

Battle Sisters are all-female splinter factions of the Battle Brothers, which follow the lead of their own god-queen. They are equipped with custom heavy battle armor and wield powerful flame weapons to purge the galaxy.

Get the models here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/battle-sisters-39588438

To help you get into the game ASAP, here is a Quickplay Army you can use with these models:

  • 1x High Sister w/ Pistol & Energy Sword
  • 10x Battle Sisters w/ 1x Heavy Flamethrower
  • 10x Battle Sisters w/ 1x Fusion Rifle
  • 10x Fanatic Sisters

2D Print Tutorials

Speaking of 2D miniatures, we’ve decided to add a little tutorial page at the end of all of our 2D print files, showing you 2 different methods you can use to assemble your armies. Hopefully this will help new player to understand how to use them easily, and experiment with different methods to find what works best for them.


Beastmen Assassin by Ilhadiel

Moving on to 3D printing, this month we got the last model made in collaboration with the amazing Ilhadiel, and you should definitely check out his Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/ilhadiel

Beastmen Assassins protect their herds by killing those that threaten their lands. They work silently and without thanks, bloodying their hands to save their kind.

Download the model here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/39513117


Patreon Summary for June

This month it’s really great to be subscribed to our Patreon, and here’s a highlight of everything you get if you support the project before the 30th of July:

  • Early Access: Faster Than Light
  • GF – Jakob’s Path: Chapter 1
  • 2D Battle Sisters (2 Colors & PSD)
  • 3D Biker Sisters
  • 3D Biker Fanatics
  • 3D Dwarf Power Suits
  • 3D Beastmen Assassin

This of course is on top of all the usual stuff (5 rulebooks, point calculators, etc.), so you’re getting a huge amount of value for as little as $5. We really don’t know of any better deal out there!


Quick Highlights

Ok so this update has already been pretty long but we’re not even halfway through, so for the next 4 things we’re just going to do quick highlights to get you up to speed.

1 – Vile Rattus Kickstarter

The Kickstarter is almost over, so if you want awesome ratmen models you should definitely check it out: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thatevilone/cult-of-vile-rattus-a-cheese-stealer-cult 

2 – Battle Brothers Bundle

All of our Battle Brothers 3D models have now been put together in an army bundle, which you can get at a 20% discount: https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-model-collections/battle-brothers-bundle

3 – Age of Fantasy: Skirmish on WargameVault

For those of you that can’t support us on Patreon, we are now providing the AoFS rulebook on WargameVault as well, so check it out: https://www.wargamevault.com/product/321041/Age-of-Fantasy-Skirmish–Full-Rulebook?affiliate_id=2357452

4 – Forum Migration

As previously announced we are going to close down the current Discourse forum and switch back to a Proboards forum at the end of the month, so if you’ve got anything to save then do it now: http://forum.onepagerules.com/

The old forum has already been re-opened, and we’ll switch the URL when the switch has been completed, but if you want to already register now you can do it: https://onepagerules.proboards.com/


Balance Updates

Finally let’s move onto the game updates.

As some of you may have already noticed, some of the more elite armies and vehicles in the game can be very pricey, almost to the point of making them underpowered. This stems from the fact that until not a 2+ defense value has been very expensive, which was tipping the balance a little too much in favor of cheaper armies.

So, in a stroke of absolute madness we decided to re-balance the cost of 2+ during the last week, which meant that we’ve had to update almost every army book in the game. Luckily enough we had some volunteers to help out, but it was still a ton of work.

You can expect most vehicles to be cheaper, as well as all of the elite armies to be cheaper, which will hopefully shift the balance of the game enough to make them a bit more viable against horde armies, especially in skirmish.

This update is coming for all games, so you can also expect monsters and chariots to be cheaper in fantasy, as well as some of the other more resilient units out there.


Prime Brothers + Robot Legions Updates

With a new boxed set hitting the street we went ahead and added a couple of new units to the Prime Brothers and the Robot Legions, as well as doing some more changes.

Prime Brothers now all have the Firstborn special rule, which gives them Regeneration against non-spell attacks, making them a bit tougher to crack. Then we added 1 new hero and 4 new units, as well as giving all heroes the ability to take combat shields.

Robot Legions also got a bunch of new stuff, with 2 new heroes and 2 new units, as well as some new equipment for Overseers, Technomancers and Warriors. It’s a good day to be a robot.

We’ve also come up with some Quickplay Armies for you to get into the game if you got the boxed set.

Prime Brothers

  • 1x Captain w/ Pistol, Energy Sword, Combat Shield & War Chant
  • 1x Captain w/ Pistol, Energy Sword & Battle Rites
  • 1x Lieutenant w/ Shred Pistol, Energy Sword, Combat Shield & Precision Shots
  • 1x Ancient w/ Pistol, Energy Sword, Combat Shield & Ancient Banner
  • 1x Judge
  • 3x Guard Squad
  • 3x Eradication Squad
  • 10x Assault Squad w/ 1x Plasma Pistol
  • 3x Prime Bikers w/ Twin Rifles

Robot Legions

  • 1x Tri-Scorpion Overseer
  • 1x Overseer w/ Phase Glaive
  • 1x Warden
  • 1x Technomancer w/ Bot-Master & 2x Technoslaves
  • 10x Warriors w/ 5x Reaper Rifles
  • 3x Tri-Scorptions w/ 1x Heavy Armblade & Plasmabot
  • 3x Bot Swarms
  • 1x Tripod Robot & Reanimator

Other Updates

Since we’ve already been working on all of these updates, why not more?

Cult of Vile Rattus Kickstarter

3D Print, Age of Fantasy, Collaboration, ThatEvilOne, Thingiverse

Hi everyone,

Today we’re super excited to share with you news of an awesome upcoming Kickstarter campaign, as well as some other small updates regarding new releases and our forum.


Cult of Vile Rattus Kickstarter

Over the past couple of months ThatEvilOne has provided OPR with some awesome ratmen miniatures, and if you thought the rat madness was over, then you were very very wrong!

ThatEvilOne is launching a Kickstarter campaign this Sunday (12th of July) at 12PM (PST), which will be filled with a ton of amazing sci-fi ratmen models for you to 3D print at home.

The campaign will feature 80+ infantry and vehicle models, and we hear that there’s a ton of stretch goals as well to provide you with even more rat goodness. ;)

As a thank you for collaborating with us we’ve created a dedicated Vile Rattus Cult army list for Grimdark Future and Grimdark Future: Firefight, and on top of that anyone that backs the Kickstarter will also get a free copy of the Full Rulebooks for both games as well.

Make sure to sign up to be notified when it launches by clicking here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/thatevilone/cult-of-vile-rattus-a-cheese-stealer-cult

This is going to be an amazing Kickstarter campaign, and we can’t wait to see everything that ThatEvilOne has in store for the backers, but in the meantime enjoy the previews below. :D


Biker Fanatics Released

In other 3D print related news, this week we released our second set of bikers this month, this time with the fanatic sisters and their deadly heavy chainsaw swords.

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 30th of July, after which they will go up for sale on our CGTrader store at a higher price.


Free Dwarf Rifleman Released

Finally for our last 3D print news this week, we’ve released a free Dwarf Rifleman model on our Thingiverse page, so that you can do a test print before getting the full pack on CGTrader.

Grab the model here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:4526981

If you’d like to help us make sure to follow us on Thingiverse and give the model a like, thanks!


Age of Fantasy Full Rulebook on WargameVault

As we announced last week we’re now providing our Full Rulebooks for sale on WargameVault for those that don’t have access to Patreon. It’s still much cheaper to get the model via Patreon, but if you really have no other option, then at least now you have a way to get the Age of Fantasy rulebook. :)

Get the rulebook by clicking HERE.


Upcoming Forum Changes

Around 3 months ago we switched our forum hosting from Proboards to Discourse, because on Proboards we had to manually provide patrons with additional forum access, which was becoming impossible as the number of supporters increased. Discourse being the only forum with a Patreon integration seemed like a dream, as it would allow us to automate the whole process, so we made the switch.

Looking at how things turned out, it’s clear to us that switching to Discourse was a mistake.

Whilst it’s true that it allowed for some automation, it also came with a number of other problems (from a bad interface to not sending out confirmation e-mails), which have lead to a decrease in forum members and forum usage. We tried getting some help from the Discourse developers, but they demand $100/month to give us support, and honestly we believe that money is better spent elsewhere (like art, miniatures, etc.).

So, what does this all mean?

Basically, we’re going to be shutting down the current Discourse forum at the end of the month, and switch back to Proboards. This means everyone’s old accounts, threads and posts will be restored, and hopefully we can go back to having a healthy forum again.

Switching back to Proboards means that we won’t have the Patreon integration anymore, and so it means that we will not have a patrons-only forum section anymore. Seeing how we haven’t had an active thread on there in a month, we hope this won’t be too big of a loss, and any patrons-only content can still be shared via our Discord server.

That’s it, we hope this helps shed some light on why we’re doing this. :)


That’s it for today, make sure to set a reminder for the Cult of Vile Rattus Kickstarter campaign. :D

Happy Wargaming!

New Rulebook Released

3D Print, Age of Fantasy, Collaboration, Full Rulebooks, Game Update, Ilhadiel, Regiments

Hi everyone,

In today’s update we have a new rulebook, some important changes, and a new 3D model collaboration, but let’s not waste too much time and get right into it.


Age of Fantasy: Regiments

Today we’re very excited to release the Full Rulebook for Age of Fantasy: Regiments!

This has been a LONG time coming, but now we finally have Full Rulebooks available for all of our games, as well as Beginner’s Guides to get people started. We’ve also updated some other important stuff as part of this release, so make sure to keep reading to find out what has changed. :)

Before we get into the contents we’d like to present you the new cover art for the game, another gorgeous piece by the mighty Brandon Gillam.

This new rulebook starts out with a thorough explanation of all the core rules of the game, with lots of diagrams and examples to make things as clear as possible.

We’ve found that new players that never played rank & file games before were struggling with some of the basic concepts of the game, and with this section it should be much easier for them to get into the game.

It’s only after that however that you get to the real meat of the rulebook!

The advanced rules section contains a ton of new ways for you to customize your game, such as new deployment zone types, new mission objectives, new actions, and a lot more.

These rules are modular so that you can mix and match however you like, allowing you to create tailor-made slaughter so you and your friends to revel in.

Then there is the total conversions section, which alter the core rules in such a way to provide you with completely new game mechanics, each with their own tactical challenges and strategies.

There are total conversions for things such as fog of war, fatigue and command points, each adding a new layer of the game, allowing you to experience the game like you never have before.

The newest addition to the game are Phased Battles, which change the way that alternating activations work, giving you more structure regimental battles, and allowing you to play massive game with ease.

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
  • Solid Buildings
  • Random Events
  • Battlefield Conditions
  • Terrain & Objective Effects
  • Fog of War Rules
  • Brutal Damage Rules
  • Command Points Rules
  • Fatigue Rules
  • Rules for Phased Battles
  • Rules for Multiplayer Games
  • Rules for Small-Scales & Multi-Basing

Oh, and did we mention that you can use the small-scales and multi-basing rules to play with your old Warmaster models, or to use your unit trays from Kings of War? :D

I think enough has been said, go get the rulebook by clicking HERE.

Note that when getting the rulebook for the low price of just $3 you’ll also get access to the other Patreon rewards, so that’s an additional 4 rulebooks for our other games, as well as this month’s 2D paper models.


Game Updates

As we mentioned earlier there’s some important updates that are coming along with this release, and whilst none of them are major, they’re all serving as small contributions in improving our games.

Starting off with our Age of Fantasy games, we’ve re-worked the way Command Groups work, and now you can buy individual Sergeants, Musicians and Battle Standards for your units, including in AoF: Skirmish.

Then for AoF: Regiments we’ve made a small update in the core rules, allowing Wavering units to do a single 90° pivot when they’re activated, but otherwise remaining idle. This should give units a small chance to fight back and recover, instead of keeping them stuck in a loop of Wavering results.

Speaking more generally we’ve also gone ahead and updated all of the army lists for GFF and AoFS, consolidating upgrade lists to remove awkward situations with multiple instances of the same upgrade for units.

Finally the biggest change comes to the way spell casting works, and this is both for the Grimdark Future games as well as the Age of Fantasy games. This update comes in two parts: line of sight changes and spell lists changes.

In the newest release of the game casting and blocking spells now requires line of sight. This not only feels more natural on the tabletop, but should also stop spell casters from hiding safely behind a mountain all game whilst wreaking havoc on enemy forces.

Then we’ve also gone back and re-worked all spell lists for all armies, lowering the power of attack spells as well as re-balancing them to make them a little more useful for each individual army. With this newest release you can’t spend the whole match just spamming attack spells, incentivising players to use effect spells more.

With all of these changes we’ve updated pretty much every single army in the game, so whatever files you have are now outdated, and you should make sure to get the latest release. :)


New 3D Print Collaboration with Ilhadiel

This month we’re starting a collaboration with Ilhadiel, who makes awesome 3D print models for fantasy on his Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/ilhadiel

He has tons of fantasy models available, but what caught our eyes the most is his line of Foxmen, which are perfect to use as Beastmen in Age of Fantasy. To help him spread the word about his miniatures we’re going to be releasing 3 of his models in the coming months, starting with a Beastmen Champion!

Beastmen Champions are unstoppable forces of destruction on the battlefield, slaughtering their enemies with wild strength. This model comes with a massive broadsword that can chop through even the toughest foes.

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

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

This model is going to be available exclusively on Patreon until the 30th of May, after which it will go up for sale on our CGTrader store at a higher price.

That’s it for today! With the release of AoFR we’ve finished releasing full rulebooks for our main line of games for now, so what might be coming next? Who knows…

Happy Wargaming!

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:

Today we’re releasing a new army from Grimdark Future, the Machine Cult Defilers.

Machine Cult Defilers are a twisted faction of humans that have fused with machines to become brain-dead killers that know no mercy. They wage war to serve their machine-gods in their quest to eradicate the Sirius sector of all biological life.

This army was made in collaboration with The Makers Cult, check out the Patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/themakerscult

We’ve also used this update as a chance to review the Feudal Guard army, adding some new units and re-working from of the existing ones to be more in line with the HDF.

Grimdark Future Community Campaign

To combat quarantine loneliness and lack of wargaming we started a Grimdark Future community campaign on the forum: The Battle for Tarkanis.

The campaign is open for anyone to join, and we use the forum thread to track armies, share battle reports and more. You can take part in the campaign from home or play with us online using our Discord  server and Roll20  tables.

The campaign is played using the Grimdark Future Campaign Rules, and it will run for 2 weeks until the 26th of April, after which we see who wins!

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!

New 3D Print Hero, Community Campaigns and Community Contributions

3D Print, Collaboration, The Makers Cult

Hi everyone,

Today’s update isn’t going to be very big, I’ve been focussing a lot on updating the Wave 1 armies, but we still got some really awesome stuff for you!

New 3D Print Battle Brothers Hero

The guys over at The Makers Cult are just really really awesome, I don’t know what more to say. :D

Without even asking them for it they’ve gone ahead and created another version of the official OPR Battle Brothers Hero, this time giving him an Energy Hammer and a Combat Shield.

featured_preview_1

It’s like with every new miniature they make for us things just keep getting more awesome, and we can’t wait to see what else they’ve got to offer in the future.

Get the miniature here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3897618

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

featured_preview_2.jpg

We’ve also added a new section on the homepage to highlight all of the cool 3D print stuff we have going, so make sure to check it out: https://onepagerules.com/3d-print/

Community Campaigns

As we mentioned in a previous post we’ve been running a GFF campaign over on the official forum, and since that campaign is about to come to an end we’d like to set some new ones up.

We’ve learned a lot since the original inception of the “Prophecy of the Page” campaign, and now we’re ready to reveal a new campaign format.

In order to give everyone a chance to play at their own pace, we’re going to have a “permanent” campaign format, where people can hop in and out of campaigns as they please, whilst keeping everything balanced.

The way this works is simple: Divide the number of matches you won by the number of matches you played and multiply by 100 (round up the result). This is your final Campaign Score. Warbands must play at least 5 matches in order to be put on the Campaign Score Board.

Example: If you won 5 matches and played 8, then your Campaign Score would be 63.

Pretty simple, you see?

Anyway, to get everyone going we’ve set up a couple of threads on the forum for different campaigns, so you should definitely check these out:

GFF Gang Wars Campaignhttp://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/9164/thread

AoFS Community Campaignhttp://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/9166/thread

If you don’t have anyone that is up for playing a campaign with you don’t worry, you can always join us on Discord and play online over Roll20.

Community Contributions

Lately there have been a ton of awesome contributions made by the community and we’d like to point out just a few of them which we think deserve some attention. We’re really happy about the OPR community and couldn’t wish for more, all of you are awesome!

BattleScribe 2.0http://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/8458/thread

We know we’ve mentioned this before but we simply have to do it again because of how great of a resource this is for all players. There’s a thread on the forum where people create BattleScribe files that allow you to put together army lists quickly and hassle-free, and you should definitely check it out.

Expanding the Lorehttp://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/8419/thread

Whenever we create a new army we try to keep the background story as open as possible, giving players a chance to create their own stories… and a lot of people are doing that. There’s a thread on the forum where lots of players have been sharing their own visions of the lore, with lots of cool stories.

Ancient Derelictshttp://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/9007/thread

Have you ever wanted to explore an abandoned spaceship that’s infested by Soul-Snatchers? Well the head on over to the forum where there is a fan made expansion for GFF that allows you do just that. Explore the ship, gather loot, upgrade your Destroyers and destroy the Soul-Snatcher nest to win.

Full French Translationhttp://onepagerules.proboards.com/post/8985/thread

Whilst most people usually just translate the core rules for our games, Squale has gone the extra mile and has translated most of the army lists for Grimdark Future into French too. We know it’s an enormous effort to do that with the hundreds of units that are in the game, bravo.

Hobby Progresshttp://onepagerules.proboards.com/thread/1198/hobby-progress-thread

Last but not least we wanted to let you know about the hobby progress thread, where players have been sharing a ton of pictures of their awesome looking miniatures and conversions. Here you’ll find all sorts of cool stuff, including 3D printed miniatures, paper miniatures and even scratch-built miniatures.

If you had an idea for someting that you think is really cool don’t be afraid to share it, we’re all very happy with all of the awesome stuff that everyone has been contributing.

Grimdark-Aliens

**********

That’s it for today, like I said just a short update. Next week we’re going to be finally expanding on what exactly is coming up in the new balance changes, make sure not to miss out on the new post!

Happy Wargaming!
