Prism Dice : Handmade from Bulletproof Glass by Relic Dicedunded

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

      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
