I am a long-time wargamer and hobbyist and I enjoy my customized token and dice sets themed for each of the armies that I create. I recently wrote my first set of wargaming rules covering the French and Indian War, the American Revolution and the War of 1812 and I really wanted to have some customized dice to go with my rules.
I decided to embark on a project designing themed dice for the major nations' involved in these wars mainly France, The United States of America, and England. Once the design of these dice had finished I thought it would be interesting to see if there are others like me out there that would enjoy having themed dice for their armies.
So, here I am offering these dice sets to anyone who will enjoy them as much as I will when my armies take to the field and hopefully perform better because of their themed dice. Looking back at my overall gaming performance, I will take all the help I can get to add a little luck to my side. :)
The dice produced in this Kickstarter will be 16mm (5/8") red, white, and blue opaque dice with the flag of each nation engraved where the '6' should be. The red British die has a white flag and white pips. The blue American 'Betsy Ross' die will have a white flag and white pips. The American flag does have the appropriate number of stripes and stars (13). The white French die will have black Fleur-de-lys and black pips. The dice have rounded edges and all the pips and flag symbols are engraved.
Risks and challenges
The prototypes and samples of the dice are already made. You can see them in the pictures on this Kickstarter. The manufacturing time will take about 3 months from the time of order of which I have no control over the final delivery date. My manufacturer has given me an estimate delivery time.
Once I receive the dice I will do everything within my power to ship as quickly as possible.
All U.S. shipments will be mailed USPS with tracking details to avoid lost packages.
All International shipments will be mailed USPS and will take 7-14 days to arrive depending on your country of origin.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
