About this project

Hello, firstly, thank you for taking time out of your day to check out my project on Kickstarter. My Name Is Anthony, I’m an independent developer and I’m also a huge table top and board game enthusiast.

The idea behind this project was to turn your normal D6 Dice into a work of art, something that looks just as good as the Armies on your battle field and looks just as awesome as the cards/board on your board games. For me to achieve this I didn’t just want to just add some basic etching, I wanted to go 3D and give the dice some serious attitude and features. As well as making the dice 3D I wanted the consumer to have the ability to print the dice using 3D technology.

The five original dice concepts are inspired by a number of fantasy based creatures; we have the Monster Dice, Vampire Dice, Undead Dice, Werewolf Dice, and the Orc Dice. The Dice are made from high detailed resin to bring out the detail and to enable the consumer to paint them with ease. The dice themselves measure 16MM; this is the most common size of dice used in gaming, however, we have also included a 19MM Version of the dice and a 25MM Version. Every dice has the art placed where the number 6 would be situated; they are perfect for collectors, gamers and hobbyists. Special care has been taken to ensure the resin is protected when the dice is rolled by making the edges rounded.

All dice in this project are printed by independent 3d printers, I have chosen to source the manufacturing process this way due to it been a Kickstarter funded project. I would much rather funding was giving to small companies and independent start-ups rather than manufactured in china. The Dice once printed will be shipped to me and then each dice is clipped, sanded and finally oiled.

For some reason, I want to use these more for a unique monster encounter than actual dice.


"There is a large cube in the corner with dots on the sides."


"I take a closer look."




And much hilarity ensues.

It seems like the dice would be terribly unbalanced. I would also worry about dirt/bacteria getting in there around a typical gaming table. A wipe with a cloth works for most dice, but I don't think it would work too well here. They do look interesting though.

      Evil Dead 2: The Official Board Game is a tile and miniature based survival horror game for 2-6 Players based on the classic movie.
      The officially licensed Evil Dead 2 Board Game is the tabletop experience Evil Dead 2 fans have been dying for--featuring at least 8 custom figures with art depicting the terrifying and iconic characters, monsters, and locales from the cult classic film. 2-6 players will work together in 60–90 minute sessions to gather pages of the Ex-Mortis while trying to survive demon attacks, supernatural events, and avoid turning into evil deadites themselves.

      A certain platypus managed to snag a Maiden Bust on my behalf.
      I love the sculpt. The casting is... meh. Sorry Reaper, metal is working better for you than resin. The resin had funky tiny chunks on parts, edge of the hand and rose are odd, and lips are a little rough on the edges. Mostly rough edges. I cleaned what I could, and am using gloss varnish on other odd bits to smooth them, but I can't get it all. 
      But in the slightly funky surface, I saw an opportunity. What if she wasn't quite a maiden? What if she was kinda... dead? Not all the way dead. Just becoming dead or undead, as if from a curse. And the rose is the only thing holding the curse at bay. 
      So maybe Cyr is crazy. Maybe Cyr is going to paint something awesome. 
      So far she has gray primer, dabs of gloss varnish, eyes, maiden flesh on one side, dusky flesh on the other, and a base coated rose. 
      Her live area will be blonde. Her dead side will have "white" hair, and a blackish rose. 
      The dusky skin and the vallejo nocturna white flesh are amazingly similar in tone, but very different in feel. Right now the difference is subtle, but as I shade it, the live side will get more rosy and warm, while the dead side will become more gaunt and sullen, like a starving vampire. 
      At least... that's the plan. 
      Think I can pull it off?
