Gunmetal Polyhedral RPG Dice In Complete Sets

$39,269

We are launching our entire line of what we call Gunmetal Dice.  These 16mm polyhedral dice are made of solid zinc alloy and of black nickel plating which feature beautifully laid numbers in various colors. The plating is laid by hand for a firm hold which create some amazing looking metal polyhedral dice!

What we've found is that everyone (including us) loves metal dice!  The metal dice currently on the market are limited, and we're determined to change that with unique looks and colors.

We've previously created a Gunmetal + Green numbering but we wanted to branch out and expand on what we've previously created.

We had nothing but positive feedback about the original lone-Gunmetal Dice we created but we had 2 issues that people asked us to tweak to make these better.

#1. More Colors!

People wanted more colors. 

#2. The Foam Insert Needed Tweaked.

We heard you loud and clear!

We loved our original style but we wanted to make the product even better for you.  So we want to change the foam insert in the box from how it was previously to fit the shape of the dice better (picture down below).

Plus, we wanted to make some more unique color combinations.

To do this we've created several new number colors based on research we did + what we thought looked great with the Gunmetal look.

We selected some cool looking pantone colors and had swatches printed to match them.

Though the colors look better in person the colors helped us get an idea what would match well with the type of metal we are using.

The colors we are launching are:

Gunmetal With Slightly Off-White Numbers

Gunmetal With White Numbers

Gunmetal With Blood-Red Numbers

Gunmetal With Powder Blue Numbers

We Were Not Happy With Our 1st Attempt
We Were Not Happy With Our 1st Attempt

 On our first attempt to create a sample box the foam insert was too hard and rigid to support the dice.  The box top would also not allow the dice to sit on it like a display. 

We knew this wasn't going to work.

Note: Our new foam insert is actually cut to the shape of the dice for easier displaying.

Note: We had to take the above shot with a cell phone for now. But, you can see the outlines of how the cut shapes will fit the dice.  Having these better enhanced shape cutouts will help hold the dice more securely and properly.

Sorry for the above shot as it's obviously not professional.  I had to take this one with my cell phone.  I will try to get some better shots of this set ASAP.  The sample set was just finalized and I wanted to make sure I could at least get a picture of this set before the funding period ends.  This picture obviously does not do this set justice at all...

Help us make these beautiful metal dice a reality!

F.A.Q.

We've had a number of questions come through already and the ones we are listing here have came through several times.

Q: Are The Dice Cast or Machined?

A: Cast.  These metal dice are cast and made of zinc alloy and then hand plated with a black nickel. 

Q: Can I Order Extra D6?

A.  Not at this time.  In the future we will figure out a way to make these available.

I'll add more Q and A as they come in.

Risks and challenges

Though we do not foresee any issues I want to make sure we're 100% clear and upfront.

Working with metal dice is difficult, labor intensive, and the materials are not cheap. This means working closely with suppliers and manufacturers while taking all costs into consideration. We're confident in our ability to source these materials, and will deliver a quality product to our supporters.

We genuinely don't see potential for any set-backs, but there is always the risk of a transportation or supply line issue. In which case, delivery could be delayed, but we have no indication that a set-back is anywhere on the horizon.

We have a track record of meeting our commitments and staying true to our timelines. Now we're going to make it happen on Kickstarter together with our backers.
