Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got a large update for Warfleets: FTL, the Game Jam #2 starts, a new collaboration with CobraMode, as well as some other stuff for you to dig into.

Let’s get to it!


Game Jam #2 Starts Today

Before we start, we wanted to remind everyone that the OPR Game Jam starts today!

The jam is going to start at the following times:

  • UK – 8PM BST Friday November 13th
  • USA East Coast – 3PM ET Friday November 13th
  • USA West Coast – Noon PT Friday November 13th
  • Europe – 9PM CET Friday November 13th

When the jam begins we’ll be making a new post to reveal the theme, so watch out!


Warfleets: FTL Updates

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

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

Core Rules

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

Factions

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

Dark Elves vs Lust Daemons Quickplay

Quickplay Armies are pre-made army lists designed to be ready to play out of the box, without the need to count point costs or create your own lists. They are the perfect thing to dip your toes into new armies and see if you like them!

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

Dark Elves

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

Lust Daemons

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

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

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


Collaboration with CobraMode

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

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

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

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

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

Mikata Wetlands (Ratmen)

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

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


Free Skeleton Warrior

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

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


AI vs AI Battle Report

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


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

Happy Wargaming!

Hi everyone,

Let’s get to it!


No 3D Printer? No Problem!

Today we’re very happy to finally announce something that lots of players have been asking for since we first started to release 3D print models: we’ve got a POD deal going!

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

Here is how it works:

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

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

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


Join the OPR Game Jam!

The OPR Game Jam is happening next weekend (starts on 13th of November), sign up now!

This is a 48hr game making marathon, focused on creating one-page miniatures games based on a common team. Anyone can participate, and you can make games solo or with a team, and we’ll have a dedicated Discord channel so that creators can chat together.

At the end of the 48hrs the games everyone gets to vote on what games they enjoyed the most, and then we will highlight a couple of our favourites on the OPR website. There is no winner or prize, it’s all just for fun!

Sign up now, it’s FREE: https://itch.io/jam/oprgj2


Arena Warband Creators

Do you want to play our arena games but can’t find a warband that suits your miniatures? Maybe you like the existing warbands but want to tweak them to your liking?

Well, now you can! We’ve just released our brand new Warband Creators for arena on Patreon, which allow you to do all of that and much more.

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

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

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

As if that wasn’t enough, today we’re also updating our Arena Games to v1.1, clarifying some of the doubts that players have been asking about.

New Armies, Paper Minis + More!

2D Print, Collaboration, Game Update, New Release, Painting Competition, 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:

New MyMiniFactory Store

We’re really excited to announce that we’ve opened our new store on MyMiniFactory, and our models are available for purchase there: https://www.myminifactory.com/users/onepagerules

From now on we’ll also be doing our file delivery via MyMiniFactory, here’s how it works:

Our 3D print files are delivered via MyMiniFactory; in order to have access to your monthly rewards you need to use the same e-mail address on Patreon and MyMiniFactory.

As soon as new models are released, you will receive an e-mail to redeem your files, which will then be permanently available in your MyMiniFactory library.

We update our e-mail list every week on Monday, so if you still haven’t received your files please be patient, they are either not ready for delivery yet (see below) or you will receive them as soon as our e-mail list is updated again.

That’s it, if you have any questions please let us know!


Pre-Supported Models Available

All of our September models and now available fully pre-supported on our brand new MyMiniFactory store: https://www.myminifactory.com/users/onepagerules

The files from in both standard STL, supported STL and supported LYS format, giving you plenty of options on how to print them. All of our supports have been fully tested to guarantee that they work well and don’t damage the models.


Collaboration with Asgard Rising

This month we’re doing a cross-promotion with Asgard Rising, providing you with their awesome Jarl Rurik model. Here’s a message from the team:

What’s in the set:

Best regards from Asgard Rising team!

***************


New Patreon Stretch Goals

As our Patreon following keeps growing, we want to provide more and more value to all of our subscribers, and so we’ve decided to add a series of stretch goals!

The stretch goals are simple:

  • If we hit 700 subscribers we will give a 30% discount code for our store
  • If we hit 850 subscribers we will give a 40% discount code for our store
  • If we hit 1000 subscribers we will give a 50% discount code for our store

Right now the discount codes are only available for Tier 3 patrons, however we’re currently also thinking of re-working the structure of our tiers, so in the future you may very well see the discount codes being provided to all of our tiers…


Patreon Tier 1 Removal

As you already read from the title, we are going to be closing down Tier 1 at the end of the month (31st of October). We know this is probably not news you were expecting to get, so we wanted to give you a heads up and an explanation of what is going on.

Over the past year the project has been growing and expanding, and with it our offering has become bigger and bigger. As we keep adding more content at Tier 2 and Tier 3, we noticed that over time Tier 1 has become a bit redundant, and so we decided to shut it down and ask people to switch to Tier 2.

In order to make the switch that much sweeter, starting in October we’re going to be providing all of the PSD rewards at Tier 2 as well. :)

We’re sorry for any inconvenience this might cause, and we’re happy to see you as part of Tier 2 and share more awesome content with you!


Game Updates

With new model kits coming out left and right, we’ve decided to update some of our existing armies, and we’re also going to release a couple of new ones in the coming weeks.

We’ve also decided to streamline the way that upgrade lists for Battle Brother Detachments, Havoc Brother Disciples and Havoc Warrior Disciples are displayed, making them a bit easier to read and use.

Looking at the latest version of the Battle Brother Detachments you might notice that the Custodian Brothers are missing, and that is because they’re going to get their very own army book soon!

Here the changes in today’s update:

Prime Brothers

  • Added new units: Prime ATV, Anti-Grav Tank, Prime Speeder, Support Turret
  • Modified and condensed hero units
  • Added new options for heroes with Combat Bikes, Grave Armor, Veteran Infantry and Repair
  • Assault Squads and Prime Brothers can now be upgraded to Veteran Infantry
  • Prime Brothers can now be upgraded with Grave Armor and Heavy Machineguns
  • Heavy Anti-Grav Transport and Destroyer Tanks now have Tough(18)

Robot Legions

  • Added new units: Destroyer Robot Snakes, Tri-Scorpion Pistoleer, Heavy Annihilator
  • Tripod Robots can be updated with new weapons

Elven Jesters

  • Heroes can now be upgraded with Jetbikes

Battle Reports

Once again Sad and Lonely Gamer has released a brutal solo battle report for Grimdark Future, this time featuring 2000pts of Wolf Brothers vs Orc Marauders.

This week we’ve also got a new channel covering our games. Battle Knights have released an awesome Age of Fantasy battle report that serves both as a how-to-play video, as well as just an enjoyable battle. They put up Halflings vs Chivalrous Kingdoms, and got some really stunning models and terrain!


That’s it everyone, next week we’ll hopefully have even more game updates for you, and soon enough we’ll start bothering you with Game Jam #2 updates… ;)

Happy Wargaming!

Warfleets: FTL + Much More!

3D Print, Collaboration, Game Update, New Release, Video Content, Writing Jam

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got a truly gargantuan update for you, with a new game, writing jam results, october previews, game updates, and much more.

Let’s get to it!


Warfleets: FTL

The wait is finally over everyone, Warfleets: FTL is now available to the public!

When I was first approached by Austin Peasley back in 2014 about the making of a spaceship battles game, I could’ve never imagined that we’d be here 6 years later releasing a full spaceship game of our own.

The journey has been long, with many iterations of the game, and even some moments of true despair, but we’re really happy that this game is now available for download, and can’t wait to see player’s reactions to it!

For those of you that are hearing about Warfleets: FTL for the first time, this is our take on a fast and furious spaceship battles game, which offers tons of fleet customization and exciting space battles.

Players take on the roles of commanders of a fully personalized fleet, which is made up of ships, heroes and upgrades from a common set of assets, as well as special assets from one of 6 interstellar factions.

Each faction comes with its own selection of ships, heroes and upgrades, and there is also a wide selection of legendary fleets, giving players the chance to step into the shoes of legendary FTL admirals.

As always, the core rules and faction book are completely free, and they offer countless hours of explosive spaceship battles… but what if you want more?

If you support us on Patreon, you can get access to the Full Rulebook, which adds a ton of advanced rules that allow you to further customize your games, with extra missions, deployment styles, events, and much more.

The Full Rulebook also has rules that allow you to re-use widgets from other games, such as blast markers, order dice, ordnance tokens, command dials, and many more.

Here a full breakdown of what you get in the Full Rulebook:

  • Terrain Placement Rules
  • Multiple Deployment Styles
  • Extra Missions
  • Boarding Actions
  • Random Events
  • Battlefield Phenomena
  • Terrain & Objective Effects
  • Fog of War Rules
  • Catastrophic Damage Rules
  • Order Dice Rules
  • Shields & Defense Tokens Rules
  • Scanner Ranges Rules
  • Rules for Planetary Control Games
  • Rules for Multiplayer Games
  • Rules for Kitchen Table Games

If you don’t have any spaceship models, you can also pick up our very own 2D and 3D models on Patreon, where we’re releasing a new fleet every month.

This month we’ve released the 2D Empire Fleet and the 3D Empire Fleet, and if you stick with us you’ll have the full set of all fleets as they’re all released.

Next month we’ll also be releasing a set of 2D space terrain with lots of asteroids fields, destroyed ships, space nebulas and more, which you can use to pretty up your table when playing both with 2D and 3D models.

Alright, this should be enough of a preview, now it’s time for you to check out the games yourself. Make sure to join our Discord Server to share pictures of your battles and provide your feedback and ideas!

Get the game here: https://onepagerules.com/portfolio/warfleets-ftl/

Note that the Full Rulebook is going to be available exclusively on Patreon until we feel that the game is polished enough for a “final” release, at which point it will be removed and put for sale on our WargameVault store.


Writing Jam Results

A few weeks ago we ran our very first OPR Writing Jam, and finally the results are in!

The writing jam gives participants the opportunity to share their own take on the stories taking place in the OPR universe, writing a one-page story in just 48hrs based on the same single theme: INFINITE LOOP

Check out all submissions here: https://itch.io/jam/oprwj1/entries

Check out the voting results here: https://itch.io/jam/oprwj1/results

All of the submissions were really awesome to read, and we want to highlight a couple of our favorite ones here.

  • A Dull Ache by Joe Fonseca – Trooper Hark of the Human Defense Force faces the reality of war on a once beautiful planet.
  • Pain of Victory by Grim – Stuck in a time loop, Kr’tchikr Steelbiter must fight tooth and nail to break the cycle and survive the battle with his litter-compatriots.
  • Hunt by Matteo Cantelmi – Follow a cohort of Machine Cult Infiltrators as they track down a rebel leader on a war-torn world.

September Releases – Last Chance!

Before we continue, we wanted to remind everyone that if you want to get all of the amazing stuff from the September releases, then it’s best you join now and download everything before it is removed.

Check out all of the content you get here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/41104102

September has really been a crazy month, we tripled the amount of different units we released for 3D printing, we’ve doubled the amount of armies we released for 2D printing, plus we’ve got 3 new games for everyone.

If you’re not a patron yet, please consider subscribing, as this is the only way we can keep the project alive. Not only do you get a ton of extra content, but also our eternal gratitude.


October Release Previews

Dwarf Army Bundle Released

Over the past 6 months we’ve released a full Dwarf Army in collaboration with Kyoushuneko Miniatures, which came out looking pretty damn awesome.

Whilst we had single units available for sale until now, some players asked us if it was possible to get the entire army at once, and well… your wish is our command!

The complete Dwarf Army is now available for sale as a bundle with a hefty 20% discount, and if you’re also a patron at Tier 3, then you will get an additional 20% discount on top!

Get the full army here: https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-model-collections/dwarf-army-bundle


Age of Fantasy: Regiment Videos

The great folks at Stonehorse Gaming have been releasing more and more AoF:R videos, with an awesome how to play video and a battle report. Now they’re also adding new tactics videos which cover all aspects of the game one by one, and are definitely worth checking out.


Three Men and a Wargame Podcast

Last but not least, we wanted to give a shoutout to the Three Men and a Wargame podcast, who were so kind to cover our September releases in full detail.

Check them out here: https://threemenandawargame.podbean.com/e/whats-in-the-box-1600916529/


That’s it for today, but don’t worry, just because we released FTL today doesn’t mean we’re done making games, so keep your eyes peeled for more stuff that’s on the horizon. ;)

Happy Wargaming!

September Releases, Writing Jam, Quickstart Section and More

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

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got a bunch of new stuff for you, a writing jam, new grimdark models, new fantasy models, new spaceship models, a quickstart section, a game update, and even a new battle report for you to watch.

Let’s get to it!


OPR Writing Jam #1

Before we delve into all of the new goodies we got for you this month, let’s talk about the OPR Writing Jam, which is a brand new concept for us, and a bit of an experiment.

For the longest time people have been asking us for more narrative, and there are many of you in the community that have been more than happy to share your own stories and takes on the OPR universe. Since we got so many awesome and creative submissions from fans, we think that it’s a shame that only we get to read them.

So today we’re introducing the OPR Writing Jam!

The OPR writing jam is a 48hr story writing marathon, focused on writing one-page stories set in the OPR universe. We want to stress that this is about writing stories set in the OPR universe, and not to write stories based off another game’s universe and just change the names to fit within the OPR universe.

The writing jam runs from  September 11th, at 8PM UK time / 3PM ET time, to September 13th, at 8PM UK time / 3PM ET time. There will be a 1 week public voting period, and then we will highlight a couple of our favourites on our website. This is just for fun, so there are no prizes or winners.

The submission process is pretty simple. At the start of the jam we will announce a theme, and then you will have 48hrs to write a 500-1000 words story set in the OPR universe. The story must fit on a single sheet, and we will be providing templates for you to use.

Sign up for the jam here (it’s free): https://itch.io/jam/oprwj1

Here is an example submission to get a better idea: https://onepagerules.itch.io/sons-of-the-god-king-example

Starting the jam has been a very spontaneous decision, and we’re curious to see how it goes. If this is well received, then we could see ourselves having more writing jams in the future, or trying out different concepts. :)


New Alien Hives and Mummified Undead Models

This month we’ve got a ton of new 3D print models for you, so let’s start with our two new armies for Grimdark Future and Age of Fantasy.

The Alien Hives and Mummified Undead are going to be released over a period of 3 months, and each month we’ll be releasing 1 hero and 2 units for each army (~7 model each, for ~14 models total). At the end of the 3 months you can expect to have 3 heroes and 6 units for each army, and we’re also going to try and include some bigger models in there as well (monsters anyone?). This means that for just $30 you’re going to get 30+ models just in these 2 armies, plus all of the spaceship models, new games, expansions, and more!

These models are being created in collaboration with Punga Miniatures, and we’d like to thank the whole team for the amazing result: Rim, Bulat, Radmir and Guzel

The Alien Hives are being sculpted by Radmir: INSTAGRAM

The Mummified Undead are being sculpted by Bulat: INSTAGRAM

All of the renders are being done by Guzel: ARTSTATION

And of course the production is being done by Rim: WEBSITE

This is just the beginning of these two armies, and we’re looking forward to seeing more of them come out, and can’t wait to release the full armies after these 3 months. Of course by supporting us on Patreon you get a TON more content, so make sure to check out our September release overview: https://www.patreon.com/posts/41104102

Note that we are still pending on the renders for the Alien Hives hero and the second unit, and we’ll make sure to update everyone once those are released.


New Empire Fleet Models

You thought that was all for this month’s model releases? Think again!

This month we’re seeing the first FTL fleet being released, starting with the Empire Fleet. The FTL fleets are going to be released over a period of 6 months, and each month we’ll be releasing 4 models for each fleet (3 ship types +1 squadron). At the end of the 6 months you can expect to have all 24 models, plus the Full Rulebook for FTL, giving you the complete range of FTL fleets. That’s right, for just $10/month you’re not only getting all of the models for the other 2 armies, but also a new FTL fleet.

These models were made in collaboration with Danny Cyanide, who is going to make all FTL fleets for us. Check out his stuff here: https://cults3d.com/en/users/danny_cyanide

We’re really happy to be working with Danny, and can’t wait to see where else this collaboration could take us after FTL (maybe some nice mechs? who knows…).

New Empire Fleet (Again?)

So, you love the idea of spaceship battles, you want to give FTL a try, but you don’t have any models or a 3D printer? We’ve still got you covered!

Alongside our 3D print fleets we’re also going to release a 2D print fleet every month, giving everyone a chance to play FTL. This follows the exact same system as the 3D print fleets, so you get a new fleet with 4 models each month, and you will have all of them together at the end of the 6 months. The basic 1 color version is available for just $3/month, whilst the full 2 color version is available for just $5/month.

Read more about the release here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/41155422

And this is not all for you 2D print fans, because this month we’ll also have a new 2D print army for Grimdark Future coming out, which will be the Infected Colonies. But more on that later when they’re ready to be released…


New Quickstart Section

As some of you might have already noticed, we have re-designed our landing page, adding a couple of new features to make life easier. We now have a button for the news section (because some people didn’t realize we had one), as well as a button that leads straight to our monthly Patreon release highlight.

Most importantly though, we’ve added a button that leads to a new “start here” page.

This page serves to introduce new players to everything they need to know about OPR, from the fact that our games are free, to how the project is supported on patreon, to a step by step guide on getting started.

The step-by-step guide was designed to give the easiest introduction possible to our games, with just the one-page rules first, and then a series of brand new quickstart sets, which include the beginner’s guide, some pre-made army lists, as well as 2D miniature tokens and terrain. This is the absolute best way to introduce someone that’s new to wargaming to our games, and is the perfect package to run demo games or share the rules with new starters.

Then there’s even more stuff on the page. We’ve added a battle report by Wyloch’s Armory for those that would like to see the game in action, as well as links to all of our social media, community pages and the newsletter.

All in all we think that it turned out pretty great, although we might keep tweaking it as things go along. Big shout out to Perram on Discord who pushed me to actually implement this, thanks a lot!

Check it out here: https://onepagerules.com/start-here/


Orc Marauders Update

The Orc Marauders have always been a very “controversial” faction in Grimdark Future. They’re one of the most played factions out there, but also one of the hardest to play right. In the hands of the right player, and with the right conditions, they can be absolutely brutal, however for a lot of players they just end up being frustrating because they are much harder to play than they look.

After a lot of discussion we’re decided to take a couple of small steps to address this issue, and hopefully give players the tools that they need to feel that they can be more competitive when playing Orc Marauders. This is not a complete overhaul of the army, but instead just a couple of tweaks to tip the scales.

Here’s the full changes:

  • Mechanics and Shamans now have access to upgrade list B
  • Fixed cost of Ultra Armor on list C
  • Heroes can now take Jetpacks
  • Added new special rule SHOOT!
  • Lowered cost of WAR! and Mad Doctor
  • Specialist Orcs and Orc Pirates now have Relentless
  • Modified weapons and upgrades for Specialist Orcs and Orc Pirates
  • Mini Helicopters now have Impact(3) as an upgrade
  • Most Vehicles can be upgraded with Relentless
  • Condensed multiple buggy types into a Combat Kart

We hope that these small changes allow players to play with the army in new and interesting ways, and hopefully be able to mitigate some of the army’s weaknesses, whilst still maintaining that core Orc Marauders identity.


Age of Fantasy Battle Report and Review (German)

Finally this week we were very delighted when we found out that German channel Bier und Brezel Tabletop filmed a full battle report and provided an in-depth review of Age of Fantasy.

The battle report is very well filmed, and there is great commentary that explains everything that’s happening in detail, so this also serves as a great “how to play” video as well. The review section is also really great, going over the pros and cons of the system, and it’s great to see someone that truly understands the strengths of the system make a review for it.

For those of you that don’t speak German you can watch the video with YouTube’s auto-translated captions, although we can’t vouch for the quality of the translation. :D


That’s it for this week, make sure to sign up for the OPR Writing Jam!

Happy Wargaming!

New Models, Jakob’s Path and Game Updates

3D Print, Game Update, New Release

Hi everyone,

This week we’ve got just a small update for you, with a couple of new releases, as well as some minor game patches for competitive rules and a few armies.


Battle Sisters Walker

It’s strange to think that it’s already been 6 months that we’ve been releasing 3D models, and this week we uploaded the Battle Sisters Walker as the last model in the army.

This model comes with helmet and a pilot versions, 3 different weapons for both arms (heavy machinegun, heavy flamethrower, sawblade) and optional exhaust pipes.

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 month’s 3D models are going to be available exclusively on Patreon until the 30th of August, after which they will go up for sale on our CGTrader store at a higher price.


Jakob’s Path: Chapter 2

We’re very happy that people have been enjoying Jakob’s Path, and this month we’ve got the 2nd chapter ready for you. Note that by supporting us on Patreon you’ll also have access to chapter 1.

Chapter 2 – After spotting a Goblin holding a precious artifact, Jakob and his men give chase into the thick jungle, which will prove to be a beast all of its own. What perils and wonders expect them past the treeline? Read to find out…

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. 


Game Updates

Today’s updates aren’t very big, mostly some small army changes, and we’re adding a new rule for competitive play that limits you to a maximum of 2 targets when splitting fire in Grimdark Future and Age of Fantasy.

Here the army changes:

Dark Brothers

  • Interrogators now have Fear

Machine Cult Defilers

  • Added new unit: Dragonfly Gunship

Robot Legions

TONS OF UPDATES AND RELEASES

2D Print, 3D Print, Collaboration, Game Update, Quickplay Armies

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?

Based on community feedback we’ve been updating some stuff for GF and AoF, so you should definitely check if your army has been updated and tweak your lists.

Faster than Light, New Models, Small Updates

2D Print, 3D Print, Game Update

Hi everyone,

Today we’re very excited to announce a new game, show off some of the models we released this week, share a couple of small game updates and give you a preview of what’s to come next month!


Faster than Light

The time has finally come to reveal our next game: Faster than Light (FTL)

FTL is a spaceship battles game inspired by the likes of Battlefleet Gothic, Star Wars Armada, Dropfleet Commander and our very own WarFleets. This will be a full game, so not just a one-off, with its own rulebook, armies, advanced rules, expansions, etc.

This will be a miniature agnostic game as usual, so you can use models new and old from any game like Battlefleet Gothic, Star Wars Aramada, Dropfleet Commander, Firestorm Armada, etc.

The game is available in early access right now, and will remain in early access until we feel that it’s ready for public release, with solid core rules and multiple factions to pick from. If you’d like to check out the game, help out playtesting it, and generally take part in the development, then join our Patreon.

We’re really excited to be working on a new game and can’t wait to reveal more details as we go. :D


Ratmen Champion Released

New Rulebook Released

3D Print, Collaboration, Game Update

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!
