We love our dice here at Dice Commander. We play with them while not playing games. We stack them at the table and spin them. (True story. ~Funiculus) We love to buy the big heavy ones for the make-or-break DM rolls. We love dropping 40 of them at a time for a horde of Tyranids charging into battle. So it is always a happy day when we get new custom dice to play with.
In the Necron Facebook fan page AJ Abate wanted to order some custom dice with a Necron-stylized ankh in place of the 6 pip. He contacted Chessex, worked out the design, color choices and costs for an order and brought it to the group. It went from “Maybe we can order enough to get a discount” to “We ordered how much!?” By the time the group finished collecting and growing there was an order totaling 2,924 dice from members all over the world.
Absolut Lush got in on the action and ordered 40 burgundy and 40 bright green and here are some pics from his unboxing:
Here are some numbers, because math:
49 (two went in on an order together so it could be argued 50 buyers)
