As we already mentioned last week we’re going to be releasing new content every week for a little while so that we don’t overwhelm you, and this awesome stream of content is starting today!
Lately we’ve also been in a real skirmish vibe so you can expect a lot of cool stuff for GF: Firefight and AoF: Skirmish, as well as some extra goodies for the other games. ;)
New Play Tokens
The first thing we got for you is the release of a set of brand new OPR Play Tokens.
Back in the day we used to have some very basic play tokens we put together using icons we found online. These tokens were useful albeit not very pretty, so we’ve asked Brandon to put together a set of new tokens for everyone to enjoy!
Check them out here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1_KGDMZW6fpiwR1YRcAFSruFQfu6qq8cR
The tokens are 1″/25mm in size so they should be pretty easy to cut out and play. If you want to keep things simple you can print them on regular paper, stick them on a cereal box and then cut them out to get some fairly solid tokens, or else you can go a bit fancier and make some clear resin dome tokens.
Check out a tutorial here: https://youtu.be/CNPoyORCa3U
If you want a set of smaller tokens we’ve also made a 3/4″ version of the tokens which is perfect for playing skirmish games.

Again you can just print them out and use the cereal box method mentioned above, or if you want a more sturdy version you can also use Wyloch’s method below:
- Print the sheet using your printer’s best quality settings
- Use a good glue stick like Elmer’s X-treme to attach the sheet to a slab of cereal box or other similar cardstock
- Apply clear packing tape over the circles (poor man’s laminating)
- Cut out each circle individually with good scissors (this is the longest part)
- Small dab of hot glue on the back of a token, and then quickly attach it to a 3/4″ washer
We hope everyone enjoys these play tokens, they were made to be as neutral as possible so that you can use them for any setting or game, even non-OPR games! :D
Prime Brothers Update
In order to allow Prime Brothers to be upgraded with specific detachment rules they have been moved into the Battle Brothers army book, meaning that now you can create a ton of new cool combinations such as having Prime Blood Brothers that brutally tear apart enemies in melee with their Furious upgrade.
Additionally we have added a new unit, the Prime Light Walker.
The Prime Light Walker falls somewhere in-between an HDF Light Walker and a regular Attack Walker, giving up on some armor in order to be able to deploy with the Scout special rule, which is really dangerous as it comes equipped with a powerful Incendiary Cannon.
This makes the Prime Light Walker a formidable close-range machine of destruction which can dish out a whopping 12 flaming attacks as well as hold its own in melee thanks to its massive walker fist.
Oh, and it can also be upgraded with a cool Heavy MG Pistol, making it a formidable gunslinger and worthy of any wild west duel. ;)
We’ve also used this opportunity to make some other small updates:
– Support Brothers can now take Laser Cannons
Blood Brothers Detachment
– Fixed stats of Plasma Pistol and Gravity Pistol
– Fixed cost of Jetpack on Death Brothers
Prime Brothers Detachment
– Prime Brothers are now part of the Battle Brothers army
– Detachments now have upgrade options for Prime Brothers
– New Unit: Prime Light Walker
– Prime Bothers can now upgrade one model with Medical Training
Wolf Brothers Detachment
– Fixed cost of Wolf Jet
– Spotting Lasers now improve shooting for all units until the end of the round (Firefight)
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!
In order to show you the power of this new Prime Brothers update (and also give the OPR Play Tokens a go) we’ve created a set of new Quickplay Armies for you to try.
This time around it’s a GF: Firefight matchup so if you’ve never played the game before it’s a great way to start thanks to its low model count and dynamic gameplay. :)
This week’s Quickplay Armies: Prime Wolf Brothers vs TAO Coalition
Prime Wolf Brothers
- 2x Prime Raider w/ Grapnels & Counter-Attack
- 3x Prime Raider w/ Auto-Rifle & Counter-Attack
- 3x Grunt
- 2x Grunt w/ EMP Grenades
- 3x Grunt w/ Pulse Rifle
- 1x Grunt w/ Pulse Carbine & Marker Drone
- 1x Grunt Captain w/ Pulse Carbine, EMP Grenades & Marker Drone
The Prime Wolf Brothers in this set focus on strategic movement and melee attacks, using terrain to their advantage in order to close in with the enemy. All of their units are excellent in melee with 3 attacks, Fear and Counter-Attack, and some are even able to charge through difficult terrain and surprise their prey thanks to their Grapnels.
The TAO Coalition on the other hand focuses on a more long-ranged strategy, with a variety of specialized firearms for different situations. Their Marker Drones are extremely valuable to ensure that they deliver high-precision fusilades, and some of them even come equipped with EMP Grenades that can be devastating in melee.
Summer Camping Trip
Finally I wanted to let you know that I’m going to go on a camping trip from this Thursday until next Tuesday, so until then I might not be able to access the internet and reply to any queries.
If you support us on Patreon during this period please accept my apologies, as I will only be able to give you access to your rewards next week.
That’s it for today, don’t cause too much trouble whilst I’m gone! ;)
