FS (order) - Custom Avatar-specific Dice

Post by CDavis7M » Tue May 07, 2019 4:20 pm

Ordering is CLOSED. I'm cleaning up this post and others to reduce space. The import info should be saved (see CODE box).

Pending U.S. Order Requests:
California Group - Handled by me (Southern California) and Gene (Northern California)
CDavis7M - 7 Sets (extras for Larry and Bruce)
Gene - 10 Sets (Gene has extras for his playgroup)
Kjeld - 3 sets (including Ralph and Brian)
Rezwits - 5 sets (Las Vegas is 50% Los Angeles on the weekends)

Colorado Group - Handled by the Jabberwock
Moriquendi - 1 set
Theo - 2 sets
the Jabberwock - 4 sets

Misc. U.S. Players:
CCG Collector - 1 set (US?)
meaglyn - 2 set (US)

Pending European Order Requests:
Vastor - 2 sets
Darksatin - 1 set
Thorsten - 1 set
Uwe - 1 set
gollum51 - 1 set
Thorondor - 10 sets
Brabo - 1 set
markhlam - 3 sets (Spain)
Taladhan - 5 sets (Germany)
dunringill - 1 set (Croatia)
Muad'Dib - 5 sets (Poland)
Elros - 2 Sets (Spain)
Shapeshifter - 2 sets (Germany)

TOTAL: 70 sets

The order requests are for a set of 6-pair of custom avatar-specific 16mm dice with the Rune (on the 6-side) and coloring to match each of the 5 wizards and the Nazgul (and Balrog) cards. Here are 2 images below of prototypes for all 6 different dice. A "set" will be a pair of each color/rune.

Most orders will be consolidated and shipped to one person. I am trying to consolidate the European orders. Details will be updated soon.

Cost Estimate:
~$10-11 for a set of 6-pair of dice including PayPal protection for us (~$.75 a dice plus shipping to me and paypal fees). Could be more or less depending on the final order.
~$7.90-11.40 for insured shipping from me to you. Including 1 to maybe 10 sets within the United States.
~$18.95 for shipping a lot of sets within the United States.
International shipping costs are still to be determined, but range from $24-36 (and maybe more) for insured shipping.

Q/A:
Can I still order dice? No. But there may be extras. So post up here.
How can i pay for my order? I will send you an invoice via PayPal. I will be contacting everyone soon to get their information.
When will I get my dice? Manufacturing takes approximately 8 weeks. And then I will sort, pack, and ship. And then consolidated orders will flow from the contact. It will be months from now.
What about Dream Card Lords? This is possible. Let's work on this later.

Modified of Original Post: 
------------------------------
Hey guys. I know we all love the ICE dice with the Lidless Eye. I really like the red color with black pips from the Starter Gift set.

But I also love other dice, especially LotR dice. I got some really neat Gandalf G-Rune dice and Lidless Eye from Games Workshop. And this got me thinking... Wouldn't it be cool to have custom dice for my favorite wizards?

I have been talking with Chessex custom manufacturing. Here is a prototype [b]16mm[/b] dice for Radagast with the R-rune to match his rune from the upper left corner of the card. 16mm is the same size as the smaller dice from ICE (I believe the ICE dice are either 16mm or 18mm). I used the rune drawn by JRRs hand from LotR Appendix F. The rune is on the [b]6-side[/b] (not on the 1-side like the ICE dice). I looked into getting both the rune on the 6-side and an Eye on the 1-side, but that design would be prohibitive.

I'm planning to get other rune dice for the other Wizards and the "XX" rune for the Ringwraiths/Nazgul. I'm just doing this for myself, but if anyone is interested, let me know. The original cost for me (I believe) is $1.00 each dice + shipping. And then shipping to you. Right now I'm just planning to order 10-16 of each dice and hand them out locally. But I would be willing to order more and ship to others, if they are interested (within reason, I don't want to live at the post office). Once I order, then it's final and I can't add anymore.  I'll be ordering Monday May 13, 2019. Manufacturing takes about 8 weeks. 

Also, the colors are not finalized and could change. Due to manufacturing constraints and availability, and even just overall color choices, it is NOT possible to get these colors in a consistent design/theme. They will have differences (swirls, no-swirls, speckles, sparkles, mixed in colors, etc). Not to mention the huge variation in color swirls among dice of the "same" color.  I'll update once the colors are settled.

That's a really cool idea! Which company are you ordering them from? It may be worth doing a separate order for the Bay Area if some of the other players around here have an interest in custom dice.

THIS IS FANTASTIC!!!

I would definitely be interested in these 100%.

This maybe a strange question but do ALL the 2's and 3's run the same way?

I any case I would take up to 3 pair of each of the Wizards so: 15 pair? is that gross? :P

If you are only going to do 1 RUNE of the Ringwraiths then, I'll take 3 pairs of those too... (so 18 pairs)

I could wait for 1 shipment so you don't live at the post office, meaning when you get 36 dice, SHIP'UM.

Let me know what I need to do! You know where I'm at...

Laters!

The dice are from Chessex. They provide custom orders (http://www.chessex.com/Dice/Custom_Dice_Home.htm). I updated the original post.

Also, I would need to order all at once. If you have any idea of interest, let me know. I talked to a local friend and he is offering to buy the excess, which eases my mind about over-ordering. Regardless, I could provide you with the images (which are already attached here) to make your own separate order later if needed/wanted.

I wouldn't need any Ringwraith versions, but I could wait for 1 shipment so you don't live at the post office, meaning when you get 30 dice, SHIP'UM.
I browsed some images online and can't tell, but it seems the 2s and 3s have consistent diagonals with respect to the other numbers. Though, I'm almost too embarrassed to ask my contact and I'm not sure he could guarantee anyway (the dice are pre-manufactured and then customized later).

Also, I would probably need to keep the dice as a set. A pair of each color. Meaning 12 dice with 2 brown (copper), 2 blue, 2 purple, 2 white (marble), 2 red, and 2 gray. Although, I still need to confirm color availability with the manufacturer.


And if I end up ordering more than I thought, which seems likely, costs could drop (e.g., $0.75 a dice instead of $1.00).

I've updated the main post with more/different pictures of dice colors. Also, it seems I won't be able to get every color I want. But I''ll update later when colors are confirmed.

I plan to place the order next week, Monday May 13, 2019. Let me know if you want a set by then. There may be some extra sets but not a lot. Depending on the order size, I might need to ask for payment upfront. Costs will likely be $0.75 a dice (x12 = $9 for a set) + shipping to me (divided by orders) + shipping to you (USPS flat-rate could be easy for me).


Also, as mentioned above, the designs for the runes are from the Appendix of LotR.

I'm interested!

I'm also a dice fan and besides my I.C.E. dice, have quite a few of the combat hex LOTR dice. I saw the GW LOTR dice and thought they were cool, but don't want to spend $30+ on a whole box of one style.

I'd definitely like a pair of each unique style, PM me paypal and order details!

I'm interested in a set (1 of each of the 6 pairs = 12 dice total), and am happy to pay up front.

I'm interested in a set, pending final color choices two sets. It seems likely that a bunch more of the Denver area folks would be, and we could save on shipping.

It is not our part here to take thought only for a season, or for a few lives of Men, or for a passing age of the world.

I'd also like to propose:
* an additional iridescent dice pair for Fallen Saruman.
* (if possible) phosphorescent dice for the Ringwraiths, in the manner of these dice circa 2016.

Would you ship to Spain?

In the affirmative case I would be interested in 3 SETS of 6 pairs of dice (also I would offer myself to centralize other orders from Spain, if any)

I updated the original post with the Nazgul/Ringwraith rune. Interesting to note that the rune used by ICE here seems to copy the same rune from the Appendix (which I'm using), while their previous runes from for the Wizards are simplified versions.

I also added links to video reviews of custom Chessex dice at the end of the post.

Unfortunately, this is just not possible. Not only are these colors not available from Chessex, but the colors used for custom dice are more limited than their entire range, and what is available/in stock is even more limited. I did look for "many colored" dice for Saruman and this color (2nd image below) was the best I found, but I don't think it's available for their custom dice. I think the "marble" color (above) is the best we can get for now. The "pearl" color seems like a better fit but it is not available. The other option available is plain white (1st image below).

If you can make a custom order for either of those dice, let us know. Feel free to use these rune images.

I haven't shipped to Spain before. I would ship if it can be done simply enough. But I'd have to look into pricing. And I would prefer to consolidate shipping from my end, so thank you for offering.

I would also be interested in a pair for each avatar (so maybe even one for Elf-lords and Dwarf-lords=)

Nicolai, I did briefly have the same thought for DC lords but the elves have their own runes (and dwarves get MP Image). But if this turns out well, let me know and I can look into it. Attached are some images of dice that might work.

Hello,
Like Nicolaï, I am also interested in a pair of dice for each avatar (Elf-lords and Dwarf-lords included).
:) You know, it is not complicated to send something to Europe...
