Warfleets: FTL Released, New Arena Version + Army Updates

Game Update, New Release, Painting Contest, Video Content, Writing Jam

Hi everyone,

Over the past week we’ve been mostly working on the release of the Patreon rewards for February and for March, but also had some time to work on the new version of our arena games, which is now available for everyone. :)

This month also sees the release of lots of new gaming stuff, with the full rulebook for Warfleets: FTL now available for sale, the new version of our Arena games available to the public, and some updates to various army lists of GF and AoF.

Let’s get to it!

Here’s everything you’ll find in the full rulebook:

  • Terrain Placement Rules
  • Multiple Deployment Styles
  • Extra Missions

We’ve also released a starter set for those that don’t have spaceship models, which comes with paper models for the Empire and Marauders fleets, as well as a full set of Space Terrain. The starter set also comes with two pre-made fleet lists, so that you can get started with the game in no-time.

The starter set can be bought here, so make sure to check it out to get started. :)

We’re very proud to see the first game we created in early access finally be released, and we’re already working on our next early access game Sellswords, which you can access on Patreon now. Thanks for your support!


New Arena Games Available

In other big game news, the new version of our arena games is now available for download!

The new version of arena is much faster, more engaging, and doesn’t require and can even be played withot a hex board. We know that this might be a bit jarring at first, but we trust that after a couple of matches you will also find the new version to be more enjoyable.

We are going to keep the old version available for download here until the 31st of March, after which it will be removed. If you want to keep it make sure to download it before that.

Check out the games here:


New Army Updates

Over the next couple of weeks we’re going to be making some much needed updates to a couple of the armies that currently haven’t been getting a lot of love, as well as some other small updates here and there.

Today we’ve updated the Beastmen army for AoF, re-working a lot of the units to make them a bit more varied and interesting, as well as adding some new hero rules. We’ve also made some minor updates to the Robot Legions, adding some options to fit our new models.

Here’s the full changelog:

Beastmen

  • Added new unit: Hunt Master
  • Best Champions can now take Beast Companions
  • Heroes can now be upraded with Hit & Run and Wild Ambush
  • Minotaur Bosses, Minotaurs and Minotaur Giants can now be upgraded with Impact
  • Shamans, Hunters, Raiders and Hunter Chariots lost the Furious special rule
  • Hunters, Raiders and Hunter Chariots now have Strider
  • Elites now have the Headtaker special rule
  • Centaurs now have the Crazed special rule

Robot Legions

  • Guardian Shields now provide Shield Wall instead of Stealth
  • Annihilators may now replace their Gauss Cannons for Hyper Swords

Mummified Undead on Etsy

Every week we’re adding a new army on our Etsy store, and now you can buy physical prints of our Mummified Undead models here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/onepagerules

The models come in one piece, so no assembly is required. We also charge a fixed shipping price, regardless of how many models you order!


March Painting Contest

Finally as the last piece of news for today, we’ve posted the guidelines for the March painting contest, which is now sponsored by Elegoo so that winners get free bottles of resin!

Speaking of painting, here’s a new video showing off how to paint one of our Saurians. Make sure to subscribe to Paintman Journeying for more videos on how to paint miniatures, featuring the official OPR models!


That’s it for today, hope you all have a great weekend and we’ll be back with more army updates soon. :)

Game Updates, Etsy Store, Painting Videos + More

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

Hi everyone,

Over the last week I’ve been extremely busy putting together a lot of new and exciting stuff for you. We’ve got some small but important game updates for you, as well as some army updates. We’ve now got a store where you can buy our models if you don’t have a 3D printer, and we’ve partnered up to create painting videos for our models.

On top of that I’ve been working hard on a lot of new patreon stuff, with a massive release for next month, adding a ton of new stuff like themed bases and game aids, as well as continuing the development of sellswords and the new arena updates. March is going to be a great month in terms of both games and models, so today’s update is just the beginning of lots of cool things to come.

Anyway, let’s get to it!


Writing Jam Submissions – Vote Now!

Last weekend we ran the 2nd ever 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/oprwj2/entries


Game & Army Updates

Today we’ve updated all of the core rules, basic rulebooks, full rulebooks, starter sets and quickplay rules with a couple of small things that should hopefully clear up some of the most commonly asked questions, as well as provide a little more balance to the game.

Snipers don’t ignore cover anymore, giving units a slightly higher chance to survive if they stay in cover, which should be especially useful in Firefight and Skirmish. The Phalanx rule has also been modified, making it more useful against cavalry units and chariots, which should raise their value a bit more for their high price.

We’ve also updated the Robot Legion rules, giving Wardens a bit more utility with a new special rule, as well as modifying Support Platforms and the Fortress of Destruction to cover some models that were not playable before. The Blessing of Change rule has also been modified, hopefully giving players a bit more of chance to compete with Disciples of Changes at shorter ranges.

Here’s the full list of changes:

Grimdark + Fantasy – General Rules

  • Clarified the Indirect and Tough rules
  • Sniper doesn’t ignore cover anymore
  • Phalanx now ignores special rule effects from charging

Grimdark + Fantasy – Campaign Rules

  • Heroes now become 5pts cheaper/costlier when they gain an injury/talent trait

Grimdark + Fantasy – Disciples of Change

  • Blessing of Change now only affects enemies over 18″ away

Grimdark – Robot Legions

  • Wardens and their unit now ignore the Slow rule
  • Doom Tanks now have 36″ range on their Doom Cannon
  • Tripod Robots now have AP(4) and Blast(3) on their Doom Blaster
  • Support Platforms can now have an Overseer Pilot
  • Fortress of Destruction can now have a Nanobot Wraith-Shard

Etsy Store Open Now!

Don’t have a 3D printer and want our models? Take a look at our new Etsy Store, where you can buy the models already printed for you: https://www.etsy.com/shop/onepagerules

The models come in one piece, so no assembly is required. We also charge a fixed shipping price, regardless of how many models you order!

Right now only the Alien Hives models are available, but we’re planning on adding one new army every week, so that within a few weeks the store will be complete. :)


Patreon News

This week we’ve had a couple of new releases on Patreon, with the 2D Havoc Dwarves and Alliance Fleet, as well as chapter 4 of Darkness Within, plus rules for Havoc Dwarves i arena.

If you’ve had your eyes on Warfleets: FTL for a while, now is your last chance to get it before it’s moved to WargameVault in a few days, where it will be sold at a higher price.

Finally we’ve made a post detailing the March Previews + Roadmap, and it’s going to be a glorious month, with $275+ worth of stuff for just $10!


OPR Painting Videos

This month we’ve also partnered up with Paintman Journeying on YouTube to bring you regular painting videos featuring our models. We highly recommend you subscribe to the channel to see the videos as soon as they’re released!


AoF:R Strategy Video

This week Stonehorse Gaming also posted a strategy video talking about unit threat ranges. If you’re looking for some strategic tips, then he’s got you covered! :)

Writing Jam Start + Sellswords Revealed!

3D Print, New Release, Writing Jam

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got just a small but very important update, covering the writing jam, a brand new game, as well as showing off previews of the February model releases. Outside of that this week has been pretty quiet, but that’s because we’re working on a lot of new things that we think will blow your mind in the near future…

Let’s get to it!

New Early Access Game: Sellswords

We’ve been teasing the release of our next game for a long time, but now the day has finally come and the first draft of Sellswords is available in early access on Patreon.

What is Sellswords you ask?

Sellswords is a solo/coop skirmish adventure game set in our fantasy universe, and it combines wargame elements with RPG elements to give you a truly unique experience that can be played with any fantasy miniatures you have!

Up to 4 players join together to form a band of sellswords, bold mercenaries hired to do all sorts of dangerous jobs, as well as a colorful variety of different companions, who set off on adventures fighting monsters, uncovering mysteries, and finding precious loot.

Each hero can be customized with a variety of stats, equipment and skills, giving you everything you need to create the perfect character for your miniatures. Throughout the game heroes will earn XP and level up their abilities, as well as potentially earn lasting injuries or even die if something goes terribly wrong (the world is a dangerous place).

To play the game you’ll need a small 2’x2′ space, as well as a handful of monster miniatures, which are controlled by the game. The game is designed with full miniature-agnosticism in mind, so you will be able to adapt the rules to fit what you have.

Right now the game is still in development, and as we progress we will be showing off different ways to play, from narrative campaigns to a full-fledged custom campaign creator.

We’re really happy to finally be moving the development of Sellswords forward, as we know many of you have been itching for a dungeon crawling RPG-like game for a while now, and we hope you’ll like it. :)

Support us on Patreon to access the early access draft, and get a ton more stuff as well.


February 3D Previews

The production of our 3D models for the February release has been moving forward quite well, so here’s some previews for you!


That’s it for today, looking forward to seeing all of your submission for the writing jam!

Happy Wargaming!

Army Updates, Batrep + More

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

Hi everyone,

This past week I have been extremely busy, spending most of my time on the overhaul of the arena games. I have now converted all 13 existing warbands into the new system, and have been playtesting them every day, trying to further refine and optimize the system. Depending on how it goes there will be a public version available by the end of the month, so here’s hoping!

Aside from that I’ve also spent some time working on some minor army updates, plus the preparation of a bunch of stuff that was released via Patreon this week.

Anyway, let’s get to the actual updates!


OPR Writing Jam #2 – Sign Up Now!

Did you always want to share the stories of your glorious army? Or maybe expand on the lore of our games with your own spin on things? Well then join us for next week’s jam!

The OPR writing jam is a 48hrs story writing marathon, where participants are asked to write a one-page story set to a common theme, which is revealed at the start of the jam. Once the 48hrs have passed the stories go public, and everyone gets to vote for their favorite one.

The writing jam takes place from February 19th to February 21st, it’s completely free to join, and you can sign up here.

Check out the last OPR Writing Jam to get a better idea of how it works, and read all of the 13 awesome stories written by our community!


Minor Army Updates

Today we’ve updated the Saurian and Robot Legion armies, adding some new weapon options to go with some of our new cool models. Additionally we have tweaked the Beastmen army, making Ambush optional on some of the core units so that they can be a little more competitive.

Here’s the changelog:

  • Robot Legions – Annihilator Overseers can now be upgraded with Heavy Gauss Cannons
  • Beastmen – Ambush is now optional for units of Hunters, Warriors and Raiders
  • Saurians – Guardians can now replace their Halberds with Great Weapons

Minor FTL Update

Today we’ve also updated the rules for FTL, fixing an oversight in the ramming rules. Now ships are pushed when rammed by ships of the same size or higher, instead of only when being rammed by bigger ships, which gives ramming a nice boost.

We also would like to remind everyone that this is the last month that the Full Rulebook for FTL is available on Patreon, so make sure to grab it now before it goes up in price!


2 New Free 3D Models (17 Total)

With a new month and a new release, we’ve also added 2 new models for free to our 3DCults Page. Make sure to download the Gecko and Robot Guardian for a test print!


Patreon News

This week has seen quite a few new releases, with a new chapter of Darkness Within, as well as some 2D hero models to go with it, plus a new 2D gang with The Brutes.

On the 3D side of things we’ve got a new collaboration going with Dragon Trapper’s Lodge, who were so kind to give us a free model and a special discount for their anniversary.

If you’re not supporting OPR on Patreon already then you’re missing out. Support us at the $5 tier to get $50+ worth of content, or at the $10 tier to get $100+ worth of content!


Grimdark Future: Firefight – Solo Batrep

Writing Jam, Arena Changes + More

3D Print, Collaboration, Writing Jam

Hi everyone,

This week I’ve got just a small update for you. Over the past week I’ve spent most of my time on the delivery of the January rewards, but I’ve also managed to sneak in some time to work on a possible major update for the arena games.

I’ve also been collecting a lot of feedback regarding all of our mainline games over the past few months, looking at what could be improved about the core rules as well as the special rules, and in the coming weeks I’ll be working on a major update for those as well.

Anyway, time for the actual updates!


OPR Writing Jam #2 – Sign Up Now!

It’s almost time for the next writing jam, which is a 48hr story writing marathon, focused on writing stories in the OPR universe. Everyone is welcome to join, and it’s completely free, so if you like writing stories, this one is for you!

The writing jam takes place from February 19th to February 21st, it’s completely free to join, and you can sign up here.

Major Arena Re-Work

The arena games were originally created to be just some quick games that I could release in order to get more use out of the 2D minis, whilst also providing everyone with fun games to play. Over time however, the scope of the games has grown, and I have found myself investing a considerable amount of time into them each month.

Unfortunately however, the games are not being played a lot, and so it’s getting hard for me to justify the time investment on them. I have been trying to figure out what the reasons might be for the arena games not to be played a lot, and I have identified 3 main causes:

  • There is a misunderstanding that the arena games are card games
  • Not everyone wants to print and cut lots of paper components
  • The hex based combat is not something that everyone enjoys

If the arena games are to stay, they need to be made more accessible so that new players give them a shot and find out what is actually fun about them. With that in mind, I have devised a simple plan in order to lower the barrier to entry and get more players to give them a shot:

  • All of the game components are being re-worked so that they don’t look like cards anymore, which should hopefully remove some of the confusion
  • The game is being re-worked so that the only thing you need to print are the hex boards, and no cutting will be required anymore, so you can play it with the rules on your phone
  • There will be an additional sheet that helps you convert the game to be played fully without a hex board, so you get all of the arena goodness in a more traditional format

Finally, as this new version becomes more complete, I will showcase the game on our Discord and play with the community via Roll20 and TTS, so more people get a chance to see it in action before trying it.

This newest version is currently in development, and you can access it on Patreon already. After having played it a handful of times I have to say that it’s much faster and more engaging than the current print-and-play version, so I’m excited to see more players get their hands on it!


Patreon News

With the start of a new month we’ve posted a new release overview for February, which you can check out by clicking here. This month there will be a ton of new awesome models, so keep your eyes peeled!

Today we’ve also revealed this month’s special gift model, which is in collaboration with Warploque Miniatures. Check out the full post with more info by clicking here.

Writing Jam, New Expansions, Starter Set + More

3D Print, New Release, Painting Contest, Writing Jam

Hi everyone,

Today we’ve got lots of cool news for you, from the Writing Jam, to our Gang Wars and Jakob’s Path expansions, a new AoF:S Starter Set, new Spear Skeletons and more.

Let’s get to it!


OPR Writing Jam #2

Back in September we hosted our very first OPR Writing Jam, which saw participants create a one-page story set in the OPR universe within a 48hrs deadline, and set to a theme.

Since people seem to have enjoyed both writing and reading the stories, and we’ve had multiple people request it over the past few months, we have decided to host the writing jams every 6 months!

This means that between game jams and writing jams, we’re going to have an OPR Jam every 3 months, allowing all of our fans to express their creativity and get together as a community to build fun stuff together.

The next writing jam is going to be in February, and you can sign up HERE.


Gang Wars Progress

Recently we announced that Gang Wars was under development, and things have been moving forward pretty quickly for the expansion over the last few weeks.

Whilst the game is still under development in early access, we’ve already added 95% of the content, and the expansion is now fully playable, only needing some minor tweaks.

Grab the expansion here: https://www.patreon.com/onepagerules

Gang Wars is going to remain in early access on Patreon until the end of the month, after which it will be removed and sold at a higher price on WargameVault, so grab it now!


Jakob’s Path Completed

It only seems like yesterday that we started releasing Jakob’s Path, but after 5 months the journey has finally come to an end, and now the story has been fully completed.

Jakob’s Path is a complete narrative campaign for Grimdark Future, which comes with an epic story spanning over 5 chapters and 10 action packed missions.

Follow the story of Jakob, an eager Battle Brother, as he hunts down Orc Marauders on the mysterious planet of Zeloria M-5, whilst searching for a precious artifact.

Grab the campaign here: https://www.patreon.com/onepagerules

Jakob’s Path is going to remain in early access on Patreon until the end of the month, after which it will be removed and sold at a higher price on WargameVault, so grab it now!


New AoF:S Starter – Dark Retribution

When we released the Assault on Outpost Lixus starter we were happy to see that many players enjoyed it, and of course we got requests for more starter sets for our games.

Well, your wishes have been granted, and today we’ve released a new starter set for Age of Fantasy: Skirmish, which sees the Kingdom of Angels clash against the Mummified Undead.

Get the starter set by clicking HERE.

Before we get even more requests, let us already say that we do have plans to release a starter set for AoF: Regiments as well, and also one for Warfleets: FTL.

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

  • 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

October Release Previews

With the month coming to an end, it’s time we take a look at what’s coming in October, and once again it’s going to be a very content packed month. :D

On the 3D models side we’re continuing with our Alien Hives and Mummified Undead releases, and for FTL we’re going to be releasing the Marauders fleet.

Age of Fantasy: Skirmish – Japanese Edition

It’s always cool to see our little games make their way around the world, and this week our friend Akinori provided a Japanese translation of Age of Fantasy: Skirmish.

Download it by clicking HERE.

This is not the first time that Akinori makes a translation of our games, and if you want to check out WarStuff in all its Japanese glory, check out these posts HERE.


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!

Let’s get to it!

How to Play Grimdark Future

This week Wyloch’s Armory posted a great how to play Grimdark Future video on YouTube, which covers all aspects of the game and OPR as a whole.

If you’ve never played the game, or have always wondered if you’ve been missing out on something, then this video is for you. Make sure to also check out his battle report series.


Age of Fantasy: Regiments Battle Report

It’s awesome to see more and more videos being made for our games, and this week Stonehorse Gaming also released an awesome battle report for AoF: Regiments. This demo game shows off all of the basics of the game in a single battle, so it’s also perfect for players that are still trying to learn the game.


OPR Community Wiki

Did you know that OPR has an official Community Wiki now?

The wiki was created to provide a place where new players can find more information about our games, as well as find extensive miniatures libraries to know which models can be used for different units.

There are also games and faction pages that fill you in on the background stories of our games, and there are tactics pages to give you a better idea on how to play each faction.

Check it out here: https://onepagerules.fandom.com/

The wiki is pretty new and still needs to be filled with a lot of content, so everyone is welcome to contribute by adding new pages, completing information on existing ones, adding miniature pictures, writing tactics, etc.

There are templates for all sorts of pages, so you just need to copy those and fill them out!

Join our Discord for more help on contributing: https://discord.gg/djBydgk


Infected Colonies 2D Models

Infected Colonies are settlements that have been infected by a mysterious virus which mutates them into blood-hungry warriors. Those that have been infected are categorized into different stages, with each stage having a different effect on the mutated subject.

New September Models Revealed

After a small delay this week we’ve finally been able to reveal the missing models from the Alien Hives, and boy oh boy did they turn out great!

First up we’ve got the Prime Warrior, a massive hero that commands his army with a heavy hand. He’s armed with a deadly bio-gun, and has a spike on his head to show his prowess.

Then we’ve got the Shooter Grunts, that come in a pack of 3, with bio-guns coming straight out of their terrifying mouths, ready to liquify their enemies with acid bile.

With these models the full lineup of September releases has been revealed, so make sure to grab all of them (and much much more) for just $10 before the end of the month!

See the full list of what you get here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/41104102


Jakob’s Path: Chapters 1-3

This week we also released the 3rd chapter of the Jakob’s Path narrative campaign.

This chapter contains 2 new missions, and if you support now you get all previously released chapters as well. Whilst the campaign was written with Battle Brothers vs Orcs in mind, it can be played with any other factions and whatever models you have available.

Chapter 3 – Jakob and his men return from the jungle battered by the heavy fighting, with one of their brothers in critical condition. They hope to find a victorious Khari at the landing zone, but instead will find that they are not alone…

Get the chapter here: https://www.patreon.com/onepagerules 


OPR on Instagram

After much deliberation we’ve decided to create an Instagram profile for OPR, where we will share lots of pictures of our newly released content, as well as sneak previews in the stories.

In order to boost our reach we’re also considering doing some giveaways on Instagram, so make sure to follow us now to get more news about that when it happens!

Follow us here: https://www.instagram.com/onepagerules/


How to Play Age of Fantasy: Regiments

This week Stonehorse Gaming released a new video, explaining how to play Age of Fantasy: Regiments in a simple and concise manner (and with some great models to boot).

Check it out if you haven’t had a chance to play our games yet, and want to see them in action!


That’s it for today, a pretty quick update. We’re looking forward to reading your writing jam stories, and can’t wait to see what crazy ideas you come up with for the theme: INFINITE LOOP.

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…).

Read more about the release here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/41122609


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!

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!
