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.

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

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.

**********

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!

Gangs of Hive City + Battle Brothers Miniatures

3D Print, Collaboration, Firefight, Grimdark Future, Play Tokens, The Makers Cult

Hi everyone,

Last week we brought you new warbands for AoF: Skirmish so as promised today we bring you new warbands for GF: Firefight. Additionally we also wanted to highlight some new 3D print stuff that is now available… all in all a lot of cool new stuff!

Gangs of Hive City

The Gangs of Hive City are various factions of violent and deranged outlaws that wage eternal gang wars on the streets of hive city. Each gang has its own rich history and traditions, and they are not afraid to shed a lot of blood to gain even just an inch of new territory.

With this set of 7 new warbands you’ll be able to create highly customizable gangs to take on your foes. These warbands were made specifically with campaign games in mind, offering a ton of customization in terms of weapons and upgrades so that you can create crazy gunslinging combos.

The warbands are already available in the GF: Firefight game page, so check them out!

Quickplay Armies

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!

Ever wanted to play a gang wars campaign game but didn’t know where to start? Well then, in order to make it easier for you we’ve created a new set of Quickplay Armies specifically designed as starting gangs for campaign games, so give them a try.

This week’s Quickplay Armies: The Brutes vs The Femmes

The Brutes

  • 1x Brute Leader w/ Flamethrower Pistol & Energy Hammer
  • 1x Brute Ganger w/ Rivet Shooter
  • 1x Brute Ganger w/ Shot-Cannon
  • 1x Brute Ganger w/ Heavy Wrench & CCW
  • 3x Brute Rookies w/ 1x Great Weapon & 1x Heavy Wrench

The Femmes

  • 1x Femme Leader w/ Assault Rifle, Needle Rifle Attachment & Shock Whip
  • 1x Femme Ganger w/ 2x Pistols
  • 1x Femme Ganger w/ Assault Rifle
  • 2x Femme Ganger
  • 3x Femme Rookies w/ 1x Plasma Pistol

The Brutes in this set focus on close ranged attacks with heavy melee options, making them formidable close combat opponents. The list comes with a Brute Leader with a Flamethrower Pistol to BBQ enemies up-close, as well as with a brutal Energy Hammer that crushes even the most powerful foes (though let’s be honest, nobody is more powerful than him).

The Femmes on the other side focus on high speed and a mix of melee and ranged attacks, giving them an edge in capturing objectives whilst steal landing hits from afar. The list come with a Femme Leader with an Assault Rifle plus Needle Rifle Attachment for long range support, as well as an electrifying Shock Whip to take out tougher foes up close.

Battle Brothers Miniatures

A month ago we made an update showing off the Battle Brothers Champion created for us by The Makers Cult, but what we didn’t show off is that there are some actual Battle Brothers miniatures out!

With this set of Battle Brothers you’ll be able to use a lot of new poses to customize your champion or create custom troops, which can come with Pistols & Swords or Assault Rifles.

Get the miniatures here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3807688

3D Play Tokens

If you like our Play Tokens but miss that 3D feel, Richard Mellow from Red Star Kits has put together a set of 3D Print Play Tokens based off the official OPR ones, and they’re looking pretty cool.

These tokens are perfect to ease your time when keeping track of things on the battlefied, and I’m pretty sure that with a little work and imagination you could paint them up to look abslutely stunning. :)

Get the tokens here: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3852611

Travelling This Week

As a final update I wanted to let you know that I’ll be travelling for the rest of the week with limited access to the internet, so unfortunately if you support us on Patreon in the coming days I will only be abel to provide you with accesses next week.

Sorry for the inconvenience, I’ll get you all your stuff as soon as I can! :)

**********

Hope you enjoyed this update and are ready to blast each other up on the streets of hive city!

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. ;)

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!

The Makers Cult Collaboration, Upcoming Skirmish Campaigns, AI Rules & More!

3D Print, Collaboration, Firefight, Game Update, Grimdark Future, The Makers Cult

Hi everyone,

We’re super happy to announce that we’re going to be collaborating with The Maker’s Cult, a small team that’s creating awesome 3D printable miniatures for wargames!

Check them out here: https://www.patreon.com/themakerscult

What does this mean for you? Basically you’re getting a bunch of cool new stuff. :D

New Grimdark Future Army – Feudal Guard

The folks at The Makers Cult have an awesome miniature line for the Feudal Guard, which we think fits perfectly into the Grimdark Future universe, so we’ve created an army list for them.

FG - Elite TroopsFG - Scout Walkers

The Feudal Guard serves as a standing army of heavily armored soldiers that pave the way for their bosses so that they can waltz onto the battlefield and take all the credit.

They are tougher than regular HDF soldiers and come with a bunch of fun special rules for you to play around with. Oh, and did we mention that they hate psychics too? :D

FG - Officers 2FG - Heavy Weapons

Since they serve as a supportive or defensive army that works for the highest bidder we’ve decided to add them to the Mercenaries list, allowing you to add them to your existing army with ease.

Check out the rules for them here:

Here the link to support The Makers Cult again, they have a ton of other models too so you should definitely check them out: https://www.patreon.com/themakerscult

FG - TroopsFG - Transport

Upcoming Skirmish Campaigns, AI Rules & More

You thought that’s the end of all the cool stuff that’s coming at you?

THINK AGAIN!

Skirmish Campaigns – As requested by a ton of people over the years and on the community survey we are finally bringing back skirmish campaigns.

For those that are unfamiliar with them, they are a way to play a series of connected games during which your soldiers gain experience, buy new equipment, take permanent injuries and much more.

The rules also come with a lot of specializations for your heroes as well as with a ton of random events to spice up your games.

AI Rules – Are you having a hard time finding people to play with? Do you want to play coop with your friends? Or maybe you just want to try out a new army list? We’ve got you covered!

With the new AI rules you will be able to play with fully AI controlled armies, which opens the doors to infinite possibilities.

The AI rules cover everything from how to create randomized AI armies, place objectives, deploy armies, and of course play the actual games.

We think this is a huge step for OPR and we can’t wait for everyone to try these rules out.

New Melee Changes? – As with most of the new things that we’re developing we’re constantly seeking feedback and ideas from the community to make sure that our games are as well designed as possible.

Right now we’re heavily discussing ways to re-work the melee rules in order to streamline them to perfection… or at least as close to perfection as possible.

If everything goes well you can expect a variety of small changes to melee and special rules that will hopefully make the game much more enjoyable for everyone.

Available on Patreon right now and for everyone else soon

If you’d like to get access to the Campaign Rules and the AI Rules whilst they’re still being developed both of them are available right now for Patreon supporters.

Additionally if you support us you’ll also have access to our Secret Forum, where you can discuss the new melee changes, campaign rules, AI rules and much more.

If you aren’t able to support us don’t worry though, all of these changes will be released to the public as soon as they’re ready, so everybody will be able to enjoy them for free!

**********

Hope you enjoyed the new army and the preview to what’s coming next, but don’t relax yet because we’ve got some more cool stuff for you from The Makers Cult coming up next week! :)

Happy Wargaming!
