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.

@ Mad Klingon

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

Mad Klingon

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.

      Announcing Relic Knights: 2nd Edition
       
       
      Ninja Division Publishing and Soda Pop Miniatures are excited to announce Relic Knights: 2nd Edition and its first expansion Void Break. Relic Knights: 2nd Edition and Void Break will feature new and revised rules for the Relic Knights miniature skirmish game, a new 2-Player Starter, brand new units, beautiful new sculpts for many existing units, gorgeous new art, and exciting fiction continuing and expanding the Relic Knights universe. The Relic Knights: 2nd Edition Rulebook, 2-Player Player Starter, and Void Break expansion book will be launched through Kickstarter in the last half of February, 2017.
       
      2nd Edition Rules
      The 2nd Edition rules are an evolution and refinement of the Relic Knights 1.5 rules which were released in downloadable form in 2016. The new rules continue to feature Relic Knights’ unique card-based mechanic where players manage a hand of esper to initiate powerful attacks and actions; as well as the ready queue mechanic where you must carefully plan your units’ order of activation to maximize their potential and impact on the game.
      Units are now organized into two categories, Heroes and minions. Whenever a Hero is activated they may also activate a minion, allowing these units to perform their vital battlefield roles, without taking space in your ready queue. Unsurprisingly, the mighty Knights with lead your cadres are powerful Heroes, who are instrumental in unlocking your entire cadre’s full potential.
      Every unit in Relic Knights will be completely updated, with many units acquiring brand new upgrade options, such as special weapons, alternate gear, and unique abilities, allowing players to customize their cadres to their specific playstyle. An upgrade deck will be available (and included for free in Kickstarter pledges) for veteran players to be able to quickly and easily update their existing collection to 2nd Edition
       
       
      Beautiful New Models
      Soda Pop and Ninja Division are committed to making Relic Knights a stunning visual experience on your gaming table. As part of that commitment the studio has taken a hard look at the entire Relic Knights range of plastic miniatures to determine which models meet our standards for quality, and which must be retired and given the gorgeous resculpts they deserve. Those models that didn’t pass review will be discontinued immediately and will be resculpted and manufactured in high-quality resin. Models which passed review will be repackaged and updated for 2nd Edition, being resculpted and making the transition to resin only once the existing stock has been depleted. You can follow this link to find a complete list of which models will be discontinued, resculpted, or continue into Relic Knights: 2nd Edition.
       
      Resculpts are not the only part of 2nd Edition! In 2016 Soda Pop and Ninja Division released a small sample of the new units coming to the Relic Knights universe. These models were only the tip of the proverbial iceberg. In addition to the original units from Darkspace Calamity, the 2nd Edition rulebook will feature two additional units per faction, and the Void Break expansion will feature four more new units per faction. The Prismatic sub-factions (Void and Radiant) will also receive a massive influx of new units allowing them to provide additional options to the six primary factions, but also the ability to be played as standalone cadres. More Darkspace units are also ready to join your cadres. This all combines to make Relic Knights: 2nd Edition a bonanza of exciting and breathtaking new models for fans of Relic Knights!

      About this project
       
       
       
       
       
      A long time ago, in the fantastical land of Farenhell, the enigmatic city of Gormalak endured its darkest hour. Change came to this grand and sprawling city as the walls moved to reveal a giant network of underground passages and endless galleries. And so this labyrinth, known only as Infragorma, gave up its secrets … and its denizens. A myriad of creatures burst forth from this subterranean maze and sought Gormalak’s destruction. That dark age, filled with war and magic, honour and treachery, would be remembered as the Circle of Blood: a time where the great heroes and brotherhoods of Farenhell fought for the future of Gormalak.
      The city of Gormalak is the most ancient of all in the Great Continent. Erected by an extinct wizard lineage, the wise and powerful Gordmunds, it grew over the centuries in admiration and respect to the point of becoming an ambitious and arrogant city. The sacred government council, known as the Paradox, was formed by the seven elderly wizards, who declared one day, war onto the most powerful and influent nation, known as the Mountsea. This strong human empire wouldn’t ignore the wizard’s insolence and counterattacked with a bloody and atrocious battle that condemned both, Gormalak and wizards, to the absolute forgetfulness. After several centuries, the deserted city was discover by a few wanderers that decided to gradually reconstruct walls and silent alleys, making its streets flourish and become full of life once again. The ancient Gormalak was then established as the City State of Gormalak, a new power that even great kingdoms respected and it has remained so since.
       
      Circle of Blood is a miniature game that reproduces tactical battles of two or more squads of Adventurers called Brotherhoods. The players are in charge of a group of brave heroes or villains that come from different regions of Farenhell. These unalike Adventurers will have to defend the city from the dark events which surround it, or maybe take advantage of this chaos to provoke terror and crimes during the missions created by this game.
