I'd actually like dice similar to Battlefleet Gothic order dice for the Empire.

2 sides each with symbols for each battle prayer.

I took it upon myself to start tinkering with some artwork.

I started with this:


And to simplify it:


Something I tried that may not look good, but at smaller size may be fine:


More accurately I think they would look like this on a dice:

Nice work. I'd say the version without the stylized flames would be best. You want to keep the design simple in my opinion.

i would commit to the double tailed comet. gold and blue or blue and red would be great!

I have a few more ideas for dice.  I guess each design is considered to be a different order so eventually we would need to decide on one design, but I would like to throw a few more things out there yet.

*EDIT: I agree too about the plain comet being the better of the 2.*

I like all but I think the solid comet one really stands out. Now on the lizardmen forum I think they sent the design and the company sent them a mock up of how it would look. see here http://www.lustria-online.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=10002

Yes they did.  I acutally work with the guy organizing their order. ;)  Hence, my interest in getting an empire design going.  I agree that the solid comet is a winner. 

I am mostly a troller here and don't post much, but I would be willing to organize an order if people would like me to.  I don't know how everyone feels about it since I don't have many posts and not much for reputation here.  Thoughts?

I'm a member of a gaming group called The Black Sun based in the UK and we broadcast a podcast each month. We ordered dice from Chessex last year. We were really happy with the results as we're our listeners - we sold 800 in 48hrs. The issues were the 75 customs charge on top of shipping and a bit of a wait for them.

I like the idea of the comet and if available in a few colours I think you should go with the state capitols:

Altdorf - Blue with Red pips
Talabheim - Red with Yellow pips
Nuln - Black with Red pips
Middenheim - Blue with White pips

I know this wont suit everyone - me included but without doing every province and city state you won't please everyone.

Are you guys going to do another order of them? I missed out the first time, although I was hesitant at the thought of getting an unsolicited dna sample!

I was thinking of getting some of there multicolor 2 or 3 color dice as options for colors.  We can order 5 different colors with one design and it would be considered one order.  I personally think they look better than solid color dice.

I would say we refer to the poll on this forum (http://warhammer-empire.com/theforum/index.php?topic=16117.msg187183#msg187183) to decide which cities/providences to offer.

As far as shipping international (if needed) I don't know what all goes into that yet, but would expect the recipient to absorb the cost.  It would save us some on the up front cost by having it shipped to someone in the states (presumably myself) and then break the order down into individual orders to ship overseas.

The pricing is pretty enticing to order in a large group.

10-25 dice: $1.00 per side
26-99 dice: $0.75 per side
100-199 dice: $0.60 per side
200-499 dice: $0.50 per side
500-999 dice: $0.42 per side
1000+: please ask for quotes

I did not realize there was a previous order.  I came into this thread with someone asking if an order had been contemplated.  But as far as this discussion goes, no order has been placed yet.

Sorry, that was aimed at Wardenmunger and the Black Sun. I should have specified that.

We have placed one order as the Black Sun and had pink dice with white pips. We will definitely place another order for the podcast at some point. It's easy and cost effective in large enough numbers.

Had my other half use her photoshop magic to churn out this one based on the same image Snide61 was good enough to hunt down since i'd prefer an outline of the image on the dice



Smaller version



If i got a vote for colours i'd like something simple such as Opaque Ivory with Black pips for representing Reikland

With the customs charge would chessex not mark the box as gift and worth less then 15 so you dont get the customs charge

On the design front has anyone got the luthor huss novel. The pic at the start of each chapter would be good. big hammer with sigmar across it .

I ship stuff internationally, and the problem with that is that it is just slightly massively illegal (the falsifying of the value - marking something as a "gift" is generally fine because, hey, I didn't technically speaking sell them ... he made a donation and I sent some dice. What a co-incidence! Prove it, copper!) and - if discovered - can lead to major issues with HM Customs and Revenue breathing down your neck.

Exactly what I was thinking.
