Custom Dice

Post by Rivan on Thu Apr 19, 2012 11:52 am

Just wanted to show you guys the sample pics of my newly designed custom dice specifically for my Grandmaster Smile The shield replaces the no. "6" and is my GM's personal heraldry.



What can I say, I love my Grey Knights!!!!! Razz

The dice for the rest of my army has the book & sword design instead of the no. "6".

HOLY COW Shocked

That is AWESOME!!!! Did you make them yourself or order them? Are you willing to share where you got them from if you bought them?

Any pics of the sword and book designed ones?

I sent my design to Chessex Dice (chessexdice.com) and they prepared that sample for me. I'm still waiting on the pic of the book/sword and I'll post that once I get it.

The price depends on the quantity of dice you order (more is cheaper/piece of course). I only wanted 12 of the shield design since they are just for my GM and it will cost me $1/die.

Here is a sample of the GK dice I ordered for the rest of my army. He used the symbol he had on file and I specified the changes I wanted. The final product I'm going to get will look more like the standard GK symbol where the sword is almost entirely behind the book (the sword blade will stop where it meets the top of the book and continue from the bottom of the book).



EDIT: I actually just got off the phone w/ the company and told them to add the =I= symbol on the left page of the book Smile

Mind sharing what colors/ranges those dice were from? It's hard to find a good grey on the Chessex site

The grey is actually Velvet Black. The red is Scarab red and the other one is Red/Black/White Smile

Yes the symbol is the "6". I designed this myself and submitted it to the company: www.chessex.com

Just go to their website and call or send an message to their customs design department. You can probably just send copies of the pics above. They will already have the design on file as well Very Happy
