Last week we took a look at One Page Rules 3D offerings for their September Patreon, we looked at the Alien Hive and their Empire Fleet STLs for all you tech-savvy 3D printing fans out there. Now we're going to drop down a gear and take a look at some of what they have to offer to gamers on a budget with the same releases but for paper printers on their Patreon.

Infected Colonies // One Page Rules

First up we stop off at the colonies to check in and see how life on the rim is treating people, and I have to be frank they don't seem to be enjoying life on the galactic frontier! The designs are inspired by species..races...things? like the Flood from Halo or the Necromorphs from Dead Space. Alien creatures that have infested and manipulated losing their sense of humanity in the process.  I really love the cartoonish style of these infected targets and while you can use them for One Page Rules Grim Dark game or their Arena, they could also be used as the Plague in Mantics Deadzone.  For people thinking about trying a system, or looking for a bunch of cheap and cheerful cannon fodder in RPGs or tabletop games these are definitely worth bearing in mind and there are already Aliens, Battle Brothers and Orc Marauders to set up against them.

Empire Warfleet: FTL // One Page Rules

Next up we have the Empire Warfleet. From squadrons of fighters through corvettes and up to the massive battleships you can jump into hyperspace and fight out massive fleet battles among the planets, and when I say massive I mean massive. If the only cost of entry is a stack of paper and some ink you can really go full-on with your fleet engagements. Again you can play Warfleet: FTL with them, or you can dust off Full Thrust or Battlefleet Gothic and give some fleets you never played before a run-out. A Billion Suns is on the way from Osprey with some interesting fleet sizes and playtesting it using these makes a whole lot of sense and the best thing is when you're finished your game packing them away is as easy as putting them in a poly pocket.

I adore what OnePageRules are doing with these 2D print at-home versions, they make getting into wargaming incredibly accessible through both their rules and the means to play the games. You can join the Patreon at one of three tiers, at the first level you get one version of the designs coloured or the second level is for two colour schemes, if you grab the top tier you get both colour schemes along with the PSD files for you to recolour and tweak yourself. Or you can always get the black and white files for you to colour yourself either through some tech-savvy means or with good old fashioned pencils and pens for free off the website.

They're available until the 29th September on Patreon, after that you can pick them up at the Wargame Vault for a slight price increase, or if you want to test the waters some of the black and white files from previous months are available for free right here! Don't forget you can stay in contact with OnePageRules via their Discord server so if you're interested in getting involved in playtesting or want to throw suggestions their way for 2D or 3D prints that you'd like to see in the future it's a great way to do that they have a very active community who are very welcoming,

Are you tempted to join their Patreon and try out Some One Page Rules?
