Hi Spubbbba,

Great job last year, definitely interested this.

1 Yes
2 Red Pearl
3 £15, but not as big a factor as #2

Thanks for all the effort you're putting into this,

Chris

There’s been a pretty good response so far, looks like Black Opaque wins for the existing colours by quite a large margin. Going for the option of adding spot dice looks to be more popular as well.

Things are more complicated with the new colour, green pearl had an early lead but has slowly been taken over by Red Opaque over the past few days.

I want to avoid doing 4 colours again as it was a pain to keep track of, but having 3 would be feasible. It looks like there is more interest in the new designs over the existing ones so I could do; Black Opaque, Green Pearl and Red Opaque. This has advantages for me, I get 2 new sets to add to my collection and it reduces the chances of not being able to sell everything.

Unless things change drastically over the next few days I will contact the company to ask about the cost of ordering 30 sets of Opaque black, 35 of Green pearl and 35 of Red Opaque for both block and spot dice.

They won’t be available for several months as I’ll have to paint them, but will post updates in this thread and my blog.

I’ve been in touch with the dice people and sadly they don’t have any of the red opaque in stock.

Looking through this thread and the popularity of the dice last year I have decided to go for 3 colours; Black Opaque, Red Pearl and Green Pearl.

Prices have also risen since last year which means I have to drop the idea of doing spot dice. It ended up being more expensive to add these as well as more hassle to organise.
I’ll go with £13 for 3 block dice with £5 of that going to the site.

Hello,

I am still interested by a set of black dices even at higher cost. (And so are several people in the French community who are posting in the France BloodBowl forum instead of here)
What is your expected schedule to release those most expected dices Smile ?

I ordered the dice last week so hopefully will have them by the end of the month.

I'll then have to spend a couple of months at least painting them as there will be 1500 faces to do. Am hoping to have them done by the end of the summer but is hard to say for sure.

Fifteen hundred faces! I don't know which I'm more impressed with, painting that much or being able to part with them afterwards...

I would be interested in the red pearl as well once avaikable. Mark me down for a set of those if you are taking numbers. As well if paying in advance secures the spot I am good for that as well.

I am afraid not. It will take me quite some time to get the dice ready and I don’t want to take payment ahead of time if I won’t be able to deliver for several months.
The logistics of sending the dice out are already one of the most complicated aspects and I want to minimise the chances of making mistakes or them getting lost in the post.

Last year the dice were a secret to mark 10 years on the site. But this time I’ll be posting regular updates here (and my social media if I remember). So you should have plenty of notice when they will be going on sale and I may give a little more time to place an order this time.
