Prism Dice : Handmade from Bulletproof Glass by Relic Dicedunded

Recommended Posts

I really like the look of these, the sapphire especially reminds me of a prettier version of the blue gem dice that I bought when I first started gaming. I can't really imagine what these feel like in hand though.

That is the hardest part! Honestly I have already broken every goal I had in my head a few weeks ago in the first few days and with the amount of funds and press the campaign is getting I would be concerned as a backer and ask questions.

Honestly as a Kickstarter backer myself I think we need to do a better job holding project creators responsible for the things they say. I welcome anyone to bring things but to me, as I have learned a lot from my comments sections already! I don't know everything, I don't even pretend to. My goal right now is to just make the best dice that I can and to fulfill ON TIME!

 

Some people like Reaper and Dwarven Forge always deliver to me what they say they will. I want to model how I do things after how they do things. :)

 

Thanks

Holly,

 

My biggest question I guess is why a different colored 20-sided when it's traditionally a different colored 10-sided for the percentile? Curious minds are curious.

 

Also, I still have my original dice from 1981. I had to retire them permanently because they are now brittle and the edges are crumbling (solid white plastic set). I do have dice much older from the 50s, 60s and 70s that don't have this problem, and sets from the same era and later that are fine. I'm going on a limb that your Bulletproof Glass will not succumb to this bizarre issue with age.

 

My lapis dice I don't use because I know how soft the stone is, and my pewter Reaper dice are only really useful to throw at people who get obnoxious (whatever number is imprinted on their forehead is the damage! :lol: ... j/k)

Great question! I have had a couple people ask me about that now. In the new version of Dungeons and Dragons ( 5th edition ) you use a 2ed D20 for a lot of reasons. When I first started getting my pledge goals set up, people asked me to included that in a set for their game. So I did. :)

 

But later today I will have a update up where you can purchase single dice, in any color you want. So if someone wanted to add a single off color D10 to their set, they can. Also, with our first stretch goal you can choose any color of die with your sets, so you get to mix and match anyway you want.

 

I love the idea of Gemstone Dice. I own some myself, but I can't really use them. I'm working on a idea to fix that myself, but its still a year away. ( My guess )

 

Anyone that is interested the Kickstarter has gone through a massive overhaul and many things have been changed/improved!

 

Thanks

Holly

Nope, she bakes and decorates cookies. She actually has more air brushes than I do! Even as a gift, $60 just seems like too much. Especially as I have many dice I already like!

My lapis cost about as much, as did the Machu Pichu dice and for that one I only get three. The chocolate dice still haven't delivered. <_<

If you contact them on the book face they usually reply pretty fast

@ NomadZeke

Thank you! The Fire Agates are my personal favorite as well. People ask me if the pinks and purples are my favorite, and although I love them both nothing like that Orange color!

 

Harrek

So... Did you pick a color yet? ;)

I understand completely! Sadly this is really the lowest price point I could sell them at because of the cost of materials and hand made nature.

 

Here is one point to consider. Even if you want a dice or dice set you don't need to back right now. I know a lot of people who are hurting from Dwarven Forge and the fantastic Castle Kickstarter they have going on right now and are just to tapped out.

This is not the only time the dice will be available! If you love a color and feel like you must own them you can always get them at a later point. If you are unsure if you really want them, wait for others to get them first and do reviews. Don't feel like you have to get them now!

Thank you very much! I honestly do appreciate the comment and well wishes. It makes all the hours hand tooling things worth it. :)

 

Aryanun

Wait.... I missed out on CHOCOLATE DICE!? :(

      Kickstarter is Live and has reached the initial funding level:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/star-saga-the-sci-fi-dungeon-crawler?ref=nav_search
       
      From the Mantic Newsletter:
      "Star Saga: The Eiras Contract will see players guide a team of space mercenaries on a mission to retrieve stolen data plans from a research facility orbiting a far-off alien world. Players will take on platoons of minions, powerful alien bosses and be forced to make difficult choices as the story takes unexpected twists and turns.
       
      The spiritual sequel to Dungeon Saga, Star Saga introduces newly improved and stronger rulesets, 'learn as you go' rules for new players and, more detailed, advanced mechanics for seasoned gamers."
       
      If it wasn't for Mantics long history of fulfilment issues/delays/changes I'd be tempted by this. It sounds like the game I've been waiting for.
      Instead I'll likely just keep an eye on the Kickstarter and consider buying at retail.

      "We will launch the Eclipse Sisterhood kickstarter campaign on the afternoon of February 14th 2017.
       
      This project will produce the six core models of the faction: leader, caster, two heroes and two followers. And as many stretches as our fans help us reach! For the Traazorites, that was four models. Let's show the Empire these fierce women can do even better!"

      About this project
      It seems like no matter how many dice you buy, you still never have enough d6s... meanwhile, your collection of unnecessary d20s keeps getting bigger. 
      Dice of Rolling are not rocket science. They’re just regular dice that come in the amounts you actually need, and they use color for more than just decoration. One simple purchase, and you’re good to go for most of the situations you’ll encounter in the 5th edition of the world's greatest roleplaying game. And since each dice type is a different color, you'll always grab the right ones. It’s kind of a no-brainer, but nobody else is doing it so we're bringing it to Kickstarter. 
      This is the dice set we’ve always wanted for our table, and with your help we can bring it to tables everywhere!
        
       
        
       
      We’re keeping the rewards real simple. You can pledge to receive 1, 2, 4, or 20 sets, and each set will include the same 29 color-coded dice + microfiber dice bag.

      About this project
      Help Cold War Miniatures to launch a new range of Resin Wargame Minis for Gamers, Collectors and Painters. 
      Hawkmen by Cold War Minis Inspired by the old black and white serials but with a modern twist, these minis are an imagining of a range from a "rediscovered lost serial". 
      Adversarial Aliens, Despotic Dictators and Rampaging Robot Legions are all planned, the range launches with the Heroic Hawkmen.
      The range is scaled at "Heroic 28" (32mm) which is a standard size for current Sci-Fi and Fantasy Minis. At this size they are slightly taller than some older 28mm ranges and slightly shorter than some newer ranges but should sit well alongside both. They are also proportioned to be "fairly chunky" like traditional putty sculpted minis. 
      (Picture of other manufactures products for comparison purposes only)
      Comparison  The Hawkmen are sculpted digitally and will be produced in Resin as the lighter weight allows for more dynamic poses and makes the flying poses more stable on a stand. The minis will be supplied with plastic bases and flying stands where appropriate.
      To start with there are 10 designs available, half in flight and half on the ground with more designs, optional extras, specials and exclusives available to unlock if they are popular and the campaign progresses.
      Hawkmen in Flight  
      Grounded Hawkmen  
      Stretch Goal Preview  If the initial target is reached then as a thank you backers who pledge £30 (Pick a Wing) or more will receive an exclusive Kickstarter mini, that won't be included in the retail range. More to come later.
      KS Exclusive when funding reached Manufacture and Shipping will be from the UK and will ship worldwide. Shipping costs are currently an estimate and will be fully calculated after the KS ends as every backer could have different requirements depending on chosen options and location. It will be upfront based on the Royal Mail's Pricing (http://www.royalmail.com/price-finder) + a small packaging charge with options for regular or tracked shipping.
      A quick note on the Video
      All images and visual elements made by Cold War Minis, the soundtrack is lifted from the 1934 movie "The Evil Mind" under Creative Commons as it is now in the public domain, for anyone interested the full movie is available to view here

      New Kickstarter starting in November
       
       
      Mythic Games aims at creating and developing high quality games, combining great mechanics massively play tested and demoed in public with spectacular visuals and miniatures designed by world renowned artists.
      Monolith (click) instantly became a reference in the world of high quality miniatures board games with Conan, which raised over $3.3 million on Kickstarter.
      Monolith and Mythic Games joined forces to co-publish Mythic Battles: Pantheon, which will soon hit Kickstarter
       
      Looks like you control a God (giant sized) and its faction (human sized).
       
      Minis look nice
