The Best Gaming Video Ever!

Over the last months we’ve been working in collaboration with Cinecore Media, Goobertown Hobbies and MiniWargaming to bring you the best gaming video ever made, and finally the videos are ready to be revealed.

This is an 8-part video series spread through the YouTube channels of Cinecore Media, Goobertown Hobbies and MiniWargaming, detailing the journey towards filming the most cinematic battle report in the world, and finally showing off the batrep in the end!


OPR Hangout Stream Coming

On the last week of every month, we’re running an OPR Hangout stream over on YouTube, where we showcase upcoming releases, sneak peeks at future content, and have a Q&A session for you to get involved.

This is a relaxed stream, giving you a behind-the-scenes look at our creation process whilst chatting a bit and having some fun. The next stream is going to be on December 30th at 20:00 GMT / 15:00 EST / 12:00 PST.

Weekly News: New Merch Store + Writing Jam Voting

2D Print, Merch, Video Content, Web Comics, Writing Jam

Hi everyone,

Last weekend we ran the 6th tri-annual OPR Writing Jam, and now it’s time to get your votes in. There’s lots of cool stories to read, so make sure to check them all out and give your honest feedback: https://itch.io/jam/oprwj6


OPR Merch is back!

At long last, the OPR Merch store has been re-activated, with a brand new style for our apparel.

The store currently features t-shirts, sweatshirts and pullovers in different styles, from a simple OPR logo, to beautiful full artwork. We have something for both fantasy and sci-fi fans, so that you can represent whichever game you like best. If you’re a supporter on Patreon you also get a 5% discount code, so you can get your cool merch even cheaper!

Our plan is to leave the current options on for a while and see how they do, and then gradually start rolling out new designs over time, as well as additional types of products (mugs, stickers, posters, etc.).

Check out the store here: https://merch.onepagerules.com/


WGV/DTRPG – Models Removed Soon

At the end of the month we’re going to permanently archive some of our older 2D models on WGV/DTRPG, which don’t reflect our vision of OPR paper models anymore. If you want to buy the models, make sure to get them before the 31st of December!

The models are only going to be archived on WGV/DTRPG, so don’t worry, this means that if you bought the models, they will stay in your WGV/DTRPG library forever. The only thing that’s changing is that the models won’t be available for purchase anymore.

Here are the models that will be archived:

  • All models and terrain sets before Beastmen and Eternal Dynasty
  • All starter sets and other bundles
  • Warfleets: FTL content NOT being removed

Don’t worry though paper minis fans, over time we are going to be adding more and more paper minis and terrain in our new style, as well as provide new starter sets and bundles in the new style. :)

Weekly News: Writing Jam, Community Survey, New Release

2D Print, 3D Print, Community Survey, New Release, Physical Minis, Video Content, Web Comics, Writing Jam

Hi everyone,

We’d like to remind everyone that tonight we’ll be running the 6th edition of the OPR Writing Jam! :)

The OPR Writing Jams are story writing marathons, where participants are asked to write a one-page story set in the OPR universe in 48hrs, following a common theme. Participation is completely free and at the end of the writing jam we highlight our favourite stories.

The writing jam is planned to run from December 9th to December 11th, with the theme being announced at the start of the jam. Sign up now: https://itch.io/jam/oprwj6


Community Survey Results

This past week we ran our bi-annual community survey, and finally the results are in. Once again the survey has grown by a lot, with 1000+ responses, and 450+ comments for us to read!

There’s lots of stuff to go through, so we’ll try to keep this as brief as possible.

Which of these game ideas are you most interested in?

Here the results are very similar to our past survey, with coop skirmish, small-scale combat, and mech warfare games ranking highest. It’s great to know that all 3 of those are already in the works. :)

Which of the OPR games do you play?

Again very similar results to the last polls. It’s going to be interesting to see if FTL gains in popularity once the new Grimdark Future version of it comes out, or if it will remain towards the bottom of the list.

How would you like to learn about OPR lore?

Following the same trend as above, here we also have similar results to the last poll. We’re currently working on the top 2 voted things, so it’s cool to see that they’re still popular among fans.

Do you play using OPR miniatures?

It seems that the amount of responders that use OPR minis has gone up by 10% over the last survey, showing a positive trend for our models. At this point only 25% of our audience doesn’t use OPR models, and we imagine that number will keep shrinking as more armies get official OPR minis.

Which Grimdark Future armies do you play?

As in our last survey, we’ve noticed that every time we release OPR minis for specific factions, their numbers start to go up. Here we can see that the Wormhole Daemons now have 10% more players than they used to.

Which Age of Fantasy armies do you play?

Same thing as above, but now for fantasy, where the Ratmen have by almost 15%, and the Rift Daemons have gone up by 10%.

Which Warfleets: FTL factions do you play?

With Grimdark Future FTL in the works, this feels almost like a bit of a throwaway question, but still interesting to see the results. Empire remains at the top, but interestingly enough Progenitors used to be in 2nd place, and now Xenos are in 2nd place.

Which of these community tools are you interested in?

The community wiki continues being our top tool that players are interested in, which gives us confidence that our recent investments into improving the wiki and changing the hosting were well spent. Maybe this question can be dropped for the next survey.

Which OPR merch would you be interested in?

In our last poll we accidentally chose “pick one” for this question, but this time we switched to “pick any”, and it gave us some interesting results. It’s cool to see that ~60% of you are possibly interested in merch, because we’re going to be launching a new merch store very soon. :)

Do you have any suggestions for things we should do with OPR (new games, armies, features, etc.)?

Alright, here we go, this is the big one. With 450+ messages we can’t cover everything here, so we’ll try to highlight the most important takeaways from this survey.

WebApp Point Calc – Many of you have been asking for the Point Calculator to be implemented in the WebApp. This is already in the works, but it’s simply taking more time to develop than we thought. Hang in there, once it’s out, it’ll be amazing!

Quick-Start Army Lists – There are many that asked for some starter lists for each army, which is something we actually recently implemented in Army-Forge as the list generator. You can go to Army-Forge right now and use it already.

Army List Sharing – Some of you asked for a feature to share army lists online, sort of like deck sharing for MtG. This is something that we’re looking into, but no promises yet, since we have other priorities.

Expanded Lore – A ton of people asked about expanding the lore, sharing more information about the worlds, showcasing maps, and more, which is all in the works already. It’s going to take a little longer, but we’re hoping to start pushing everything out by mid-2023.

Narrative Campaigns – Tied with the lore requests, we’ve also had lots of people asking for more narrative campaigns, with named characters, and bundled with printable armies as well. This is definitely something we want to release ASAP, but its going to take some time as well. We first need the lore to be fully revealed, before narrative campaigns make sense.

Small-Scale & Solo/Coop Games – Many many many of you asked for small-scale and solo/coop games, which are both in the works. We’re hoping to have both game types released in 2023, as well as releasing small-scale minis and heroid/rpg minis too.

Grimdark FTL – There were many of you who asked us to bring FTL to the Grimdark Future universe, which is already in the works. The beta is currently available on Patreon, and once we’re out of beta we’re hoping to have FTL lists in the WebApp as well. We’re also in the early stages of developing concepts for new ship miniatures for them, which is very exciting.

New Advanced Rules – We had lots of suggestions for new advanced rules for the Full Rulebooks, to help you further expand and customize your play experience. This is something we’ve also already been working on, and we are planning on greatly expanding the advanced rules content in the future.

Fantasy Gang Wars – This is a very popular request, to make a fantasy version of Gang Wars. It’s something that we would love to work on, but right now we have other priorities. Don’t worry though, eventually it will happen!

Map-Based Expansion – Another expansion that we’ve been wanting to do for a long time, and that people have asked for, is to have a map-based supplement, that allows you to tie your matches in to large territory control campaigns. Again something we’d love to do, but we have other priorities right now.

Historicals / Other IPs – Some of you asked us to make historical games, or to start making games for other IPs. We are honestly not very interested in doing that right now, because that’s not our focus, and because all of this will be “solved” once the WebApp point calc integration is completed. Once that tool is in your hands, you will be able to make and share army lists for whatever you want, and won’t have to wait for us to finally make rules to cover the indo-china wars.

New Starter Sets – Plenty of people have been asking for new starter sets, for 3D print, 2D print, and physical minis. This is something that we’re definitely interested in doing, and might be able to release in early 2023.

Compatibility Program – As you may have already seen with Tablehammer and Dragon Trapper’s Lodge, we’ve been working on a compatibility program, to help other creators make army lists for OPR games. This is something many of you have been requesting, and we’ll keep expanding this program so that one day, everyone can play together under the OPR roof. :)

FLGS Support / Volunteering – There are many of you that have asked for more FLGS support, as well as for a volunteering program. This is something that we’re slowly working on, and we want to help you create your own local communities for OPR, with lots of tools and resources to get you going. Stay tuned for more information in the coming year.

Community Wiki Updates – This was not a huge request, but we saw multiple comments asking for parts of the community wiki to be updated, so we thought we’d comment on this. The OPR wiki is a community wiki, which means that it’s filled out by content made from fans, just like you. So if you want to change anything on the wiki, you can simply log in and make those changes. We’ve also got a channel on discord where fans get together to organize wiki changes, so make sure to check it out.

Thank You’s – Last but not least, there was an overwhelming number of you who used the comment box to simply say thank you. We really appreciate all of the love that you have been sending our way, and look forward to continue to provide you with fun games and worlds for many years to come.

Thank you everyone for answering the community survey, it’s always a pleasure to hear all of your feedback (good or bad). The next community survey will be in June 2023, when hopefully a lot of the stuff discussed here will already be released.

Into the new year we go! :D


SQUIP! – S01E05


December Release

This month we’ve got the first wave of Battle Sisters, some new Ratmen models, plus the last wave of Saurian Starhost models. On top of that we’ve also got the welcome pack, terrain, bases, game aids, rulebooks, and much much more. :)

This project was made by gamers for gamers, and can only exist thanks to the support of our awesome community. Please consider subscribing on Patreon, where you’ll get tons of extra games, models and more.


New GF: FTL Fleets Released

The Grimdark Future: FTL beta is now available on Patreon, and we’ve just added two new extra fleets!

This month the Battle Sisters and Infected Colonies have joined the battle, bringing us up to a total of 12 out of 16 fleets available to play. Check them out and make sure to leave us your feedback!


New Missions Released

The latest missions have been released on Patreon, with a total of 8 missions for you:

  • Grimdark Future – Like Clockwork + High Speed Chase
  • GF: Firefight – Decompression + Console Overload
  • Age of Fantasy – Blazing City + Hammer & Anvil
  • AoF: Skirmish – Vermin Trap + Beast Hunters

These missions are focused on fun new ways to play, with interesting objectives and special rules to spice things up. We release new missions every month, so make sure to stick around so that you don’t miss any.

Note that whilst the missions are designed for each specific game, you can totally play them with the rules for any other game (with slight adjustments). This means that you have even more missions to play each month!


New 2D Minis Released

The new Mummified Undead and Robot Legion sets are available on Patreon.

These sets feature a ton of minis with front and back views in two different color schemes, as well as black & white. They also include black border versions of the minis, plus VTT tokens to play online.


New Miniatures on Only-Games

Don’t care for 2D printing or 3D printing? Well then we’ve got you covered, because now all of the minis we released in November have been uploaded to our Only-Games Store.

If you’re curious about buying pre-printed minis, make sure to check out this review:

Weekly News: Community Survey, Comp Updates, Army Generator and More!

2D Print, Community Survey, Game Update, Web Comics, WebApp, Writing Jam

Hi everyone,

Every 6 months we run a community survey to get a general feel for what sort of players are currently interested in OPR, and to give everyone an opportunity to send in their feedback/suggestions anonymously.

This is a super quick survey that only takes a few minutes to fill in, and we’ll be keeping it open for a week, with the results being revealed to the public in next week’s post.

Take the survey here: https://forms.gle/1cu1ckt1fnw8uyNM7

Writing Jam Soon

The OPR Writing Jams are story writing marathons, where participants are asked to write a one-page story set in the OPR universe in 48hrs, following a common theme. Participation is completely free and at the end of the writing jam we highlight our favourite stories.

The writing jam is planned to run from December 9th to December 11th, with the theme being announced at the start of the jam. Sign up now: https://itch.io/jam/oprwj6


Competitive Rules Updates

Today we’ve added some new restrictions to the competitive rules, in an effort to further balance list-building in matched play environments. The issues we’re trying to solve here are the concentration of army power into single activations, as well as the spamming of chaff models in skirmish, where hordes are harder to deal with.

Here’s what’s changing:

  • All Games – No single unit may be worth over 33% of the total army points
  • Skirmish Games – Player may take max. 1 model per full 20pts in their list

For reference, this means that in a 2000pts battle game, you can’t have a single unit worth over 660pts, and in skirmish you can’t have a single unit worth over 99pts, and you can take max. 15 models in a 300pts game.

You can find the rules in each game’s supplements folder. :)


Army-Forge List Generator

In order to help new players get into the game more easily, as well as give veterans some fun tools to play around with, we’ve now added an automatic list generator in the Army-Forge.

The way this works is simple: select an army and points value, and Army-Forge will automatically create a list for you at that selected point cost, so that you can get playing straight away.

This is a great tool for new players who don’t know what they’re doing yet, because they don’t have to fiddle around with army lists before getting into the game. For veterans, this can be a fun way to build new lists, using the list generator as a baseline to then modify the list to their liking, or try out new combos they hadn’t thought of.

Give it a shot here: https://army-forge.onepagerules.com/


WGV/DTRPG – Models Removed Soon

At the end of the month we’re going to permanently archive some of our older 2D models on WGV/DTRPG, which don’t reflect our vision of OPR paper models anymore. If you want to buy the models, make sure to get them before the 31st of December!

  • All starter sets and other bundles
  • Warfleets: FTL content NOT being removed

New GF: FTL Fleets Released

The Grimdark Future: FTL beta is now available on Patreon, and we’ve just added two new extra fleets!

Until now, FTL was set in a super generic universe, that was just a placeholder to give people an excuse to play with spaceship minis. However, ever since the game was first released, fans have been asking us to set the game in the Grimdark Future universe, and now we’re making that transition actually happen.

This month the Robot Legions and TAO Coalition have joined the battle, bringing us up to a total of 4 out of 16 fleets available to play. Check them out and make sure to leave us your feedback!


New Mission Packs

The latest mission pack has been released on Patreon, with 8 brand new missions:

  • Grimdark Future – Tattered Legions + Blood & Snow
  • GF: Firefight – Road War + The Walking Dead
  • Age of Fantasy – The Cattle Rustlers + The Great Valley
  • AoF: Skirmish – Barge Battle + Falling Stars

These missions are focused on fun new ways to play, with interesting objectives and special rules to spice things up. We release new missions every month, so make sure to stick around so that you don’t miss any.

Note that whilst the missions are designed for each specific game, you can totally play them with the rules for any other game (with slight adjustments). This means that you have even more missions to play each month!


New 2D Minis Released

The new Mummified Undead and Robot Legion sets are available on Patreon.

These sets feature a ton of minis with front and back views in two different color schemes, as well as black & white. They also include black border versions of the minis, plus VTT tokens to play online.

On top of all that, we’ve also got a new set of Eternal Dynasty paper terrain for you to enjoy!


New Miniatures on Only-Games

Don’t care for 2D printing or 3D printing? Well then we’ve got you covered, because now all of the minis we released in April have been uploaded to our Only-Games Store.
