Prism Dice : Handmade from Bulletproof Glass by Relic Dicedunded

Recommended Posts

 

 

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.

 

You didn't scroll far enough down the page.  Just pledge at the lowest level ($1) and add the amount listed for each die you want.  8ecce35900f990b81fabe39aaa2f6daf_origina

Doh! Thanks!

EDIT: Unfortunately those prices put this back out of my price range again.

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...

 

 

I know you aren't crazy.  I saw one of Lou Zocchi's dice presentations at Dragoncon a couple of years ago.  Measured some of mine when I got home and was able to verify much of what he said about size and shape inconsistencies. 

 

Many of the people on this forum have a wide variety of paints looking for an application.  I think projectile rated dice are a good use for said paint.  The nice thing about glass is it should be safe to drop in the paint remover if a color works out poorly.   

 

Are you including a "Do not leave on floor" safety warning for your 4 sided caltrops?   I have memories of much pain from stepping on the d4s that were available when D&D only had one version.  And those were the infamous 'low impact' plastic.

Thanks @ Erifnogard

for the link. Should have done it myself here, but was working on dice all day. Gotta get a head start on things!

 

Thanks a lot Jeneki -

Now I want to play roll for the Galaxy, Russian Rollette style.

 

@ Mad Klingon

Lou is a genius. I owe a lot of my dice knowledge to him and his talks and presentations. Without that man the world would truly be down a passionate individual who loves his craft.

 

Dice should come with a warning sign. Even with the D8 and D10 you can feel those points, but D4 can be downright deadly. I don't walk barefoot around my work area anymore because of possible situations like this....

Actually a very good question...

 

How well do these stand up to say...

 

Acetone (fingernail polish remover)

Isopropyl Alcohol

Undiluted Simple Green

 

You know... in case of um... spills? :unsure:

I'ld be pretty surprised if they reacted at all to the alcohol or the Simple Green.  Would be curious to see a test with acetone.

This is the most tempted I've been by a dice kickstarter. Mostly for the curiousity of the material for rolling, durability, and general "feel" of the dice. And of course how well they look in person.

Still won't be able to back it. But I will be watching for reviews when folks who did begin to receive their dice.

Yowza... certainly missed out on this one... probably saved myself some money, but will keep an eye out for retail.  Be interesting to see how they compare to my metal dice.  They already look far superior to my pounds of plastic ones...

I see folks in the Kickstarter comments section are starting to get a bit antsy about there not being an update since September.

      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.

      From DGS Games,
       
      "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
