Prism Dice : Handmade from Bulletproof Glass by Relic Dicedunded

67 posts in this topic

Maybe I missed it but did they ever say what the nominal size of these are?   They show one next to a "standard die" but whose standard?    

 

And I have to wonder why one of my first thoughts was what would happen if you shot a die made of bullet proof glass at a pane of bullet proof glass.

Bullet proof glass does not mean damage proof. The die would like flatten upon the impacted area while the glass would likely craze.

Hey! The reason I don't quote a exact size is because the dice are made and finished by hand. As such, they could all be slightly different from each other. They are all "about" 16mm size, which is the same size as standard Die you buy at a game store, but sometimes will go down to 15.9mm or 15.999888mm ect.

 

@ Darsc Zacal

Is very correct!

I do have a update which shows a video of my dice going through some rather rough trials

But having said that, they are CERTAINLY NOT damage proof!

Wow! That rock crusher video is impressive!

 

What will the cost be for a single d20 in a chosen color?

Impressive. Most impressive.

Your powers of dice selling are strong.

 

Seriously. If you had run this a couple of years ago when our dollars were at par and my financial situation was different, I could see myself having ordered a set.

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

They updated last night about "progress."

 

The Valentines Day gift that wasn't. <_<

Wow that rock crusher video is nuts. Guy even hit it twice as much as the others, and didn't seem to be holding back at all.

 

Not strictly scientific, but a good show of the strengths nonetheless!

Funny how one can use dice for years and not really pay attention to them.  On the size question, my sets of dice that were probably sold as 16mm, have the d4,d6, d8 and d10 being about 16mm flat to flat, or flat to point for the d4.  The d12 and d20 are about 18mm flat to flat.  Will yours all be nominally 16mm or will the d12 and d20s be a bit larger?

 

What type paint do you recommend?  Had a wild thought of every number a different color.

@ Mad Klingon

Thanks for the notes about size. I made a updated post in my Kickstarter to reflect it. That is one of the reasons I love engaging with people online, is you help me see the many things I miss. After all, I'm a artist, not a business person! :)

 

@ pcktlnt

Thanks!

 

@ Talae

Thank you! I will have prices up in a few hours from now on single die prices so they can be purchased. Just working on the graphic banner now. It's funny, I may be a artist but banners / graphic design is my bane....

 

Prices for single die are

Add-ons

D6 D10 D12 D20

 

$10

$12

$12

$15

 

@ Darsc Zacal

Honestly I am just happy that you like them. Like art I think a quality painting sells itself. :)

 

@ Ravendas

I like that.  " Not strictly scientific, but a good show of the strengths nonetheless! "

Can I steal that quote? It describes my testing methods! :)

 

Honestly I use some rather big terms in my Kickstarter. When you do something like that you need to back it up. But if you see it from my point of view, I already did the tests before hand so I knew what they were capable of withstanding. That is why I used terms like a Lifetime of use in the Kickstarter because I had gone through many many durability tests. I have so many dice that have been turned to power or cracked and smashed over the last two years while I figured everything out! lol

Ok....

I'm going to share a dice secret with everyone.

I have not said this anywhere else, or in my comments section or anything because people would think I'm crazy...

 

There are no 16mm dice sets.

None that I am aware of at least.

It's so crazy. We all know what a 16mm dice set feels like. We know the size of a d12 to a d8, but if you actually stop and measure it you will find out that your set is not really 16mm! A lot of times the D10 is not 16mm either, nor is the d8! The reason dice people call it a 16mm set, is because more than 50% of the die are 16mm side to side or side to point. When I started doing research I was stunned!

 

To answer question #1, my D20 and D12 are both slightly larger in mm then the rest of the dice as well.

Question #2, I use standard artist level acrylic paints and inks for numbers.

I had never thought of each number a different color! I will warn though that some colors of ink are much harder to see then white is, at least for me. Maybe my eyes are just getting old!

Couldn't find the option to pledge for a single die. Was thinking of maybe ordering a D20. Possibly two so they could also be used as percentiles. Depends on how things stand when this ends and price and shipping costs to Canada.

Time to make a game about using gunshots to roll the dice.  Maybe call it Russian Rollette.

You pledge at the dollar level and then add the amount specified for each die you want.

But how much is each individual die? All I could find is a random die is $9 but I dont want a random die.

      After the success of the first campaign for 16th century Knights I'm now expanding my 28mm Renaissance range with charging mounted Knights!
      These new Knights will have couched lances or be using hand weapons on galloping horses.
      Further I have reworked the figures from the first Knights campaign to make them easier to assemble, they now have sockets to attach the hands and heads. There are also some revised poses and new heads.
      Sets one-three painted so you can get a feel for how these figures can look. Please note these sets are being revised and pictures of the new ones will be added as the campaign continues. These figures are in the popular 28mm scale and will fit well with figures such as Perry miniatures, they can be used for many periods and settings in the 16th century but also for fantasy collections.
      Please note that the figures are unpainted and require assembly they are not toys for children. Also the figures shown still have minor refinements to be made before casting.
      My figures have been highly researched and are packed with details, I have tried to give many of them an explosive sense of movement. Every mounted knight figure comes with a choice of two heads and two plumes the horses are all separate from the riders and all nessesary weapons are included. This means you can customise your figures to create a very unique collection.
      if you back the campaign you will receive you figures at a 25% discount of normal website prices, which means that for the campaign a pack of two mounted Knights cost £15
      Also if the main campaign is a succes as a stretch goal the first pikemen figures will be released...these figures will be in full forward motion with levelled pikes. They can be used for either Landsknechts or Swiss pike.

      Kickstarter coming end of this month.
       
      Some pics of minis and what not have popped up today from CMON expo. I dont want to repost from other news sites but if you search there are some nice pictures of the models. I really like the evil gnome/dwarf looking guys.

      In the most distant reaches of the world, magic still exists, embodied by spirits of the land, of the sky, and of every natural thing. As the great powers of Europe stretch their colonial empires further and further, they will inevitably lay claim to a place where spirits still hold power - and when they do, the land itself will fight back alongside the islanders who live there.
       
      Spirit Island is a cooperative, settler-destruction strategy game for 1 to 4 players designed by R. Eric Reuss and set in an alternate-history world around A.D. 1700. Players are different spirits of the land, each with their own unique elemental powers, forced to defend their island home from colonizing Invaders spreading blight and destruction. Work with your fellow spirits and the native islanders to increase your power and drive the invading colonists from your island in this strategic area-control game.
       

       
      This game was playtested at some of my Fourth of July parties, and though I haven't had a chance to play it yet myself, the game comes highly recommended.
       
      The interesting bit here is that you play neither the Invaders nor the Inhabitants of the island, but the spirits trying to alter the balance of power in defense of the Inhabitants themselves.
