Okay, odd question. Does anyone know off any good UK online sellers of dice?

Should start with these guys:

Are you after any particular dice? For instance Gale Force 9 do "themed" d6 for various factions of Warmachine, Hordes, AT-43 etc.

I agree. I now have fifty metal D6's from them, and they are currently in a chainmail dice bag. Heavy as a brick, but fun to roll.

I bought mine off of eBay. 50 yellow d6 for under a fiver including P&P. Go yellow dice go!

I have often pondered metal dice. My worry is though whether they'll take chunks out of the terrain and models if you aren't REALLY gentle with them when rolling? I suppose I could use a dice box but I'd rather not.

I am a bit of a dice whore though.

I can't believe I walked into my FLGS and laid out 8 for these: http://img353.imageshack.us/img353/6808/redblockdicetinweb525bezz2.th.jpg (http://img353.imageshack.us/my.php?image=redblockdicetinweb525bezz2.jpg)

Osbad, they are smaller than the standard D6's and I haven't had any problems with damaging terrain or figures so far. They don't travel as far as regular dice when rolled, either. They do make more noise on the standard GW tables, though.

Great service and fast as well. Also the option for custom dice, like the ones in my Avatar. <----

Casino dice are good as well, but more expensive. Everything I've seen denotes the GW dice as not being terribly balanced.

Most casino dice cost so much because they are balanced as close as possibly can be. Many dice are not as accurate - although in the big scheme of things the %age difference is slight.

Themed dice are the most inaccurate. My playing group have abandoned all our themed dice as we feel that the imbalance does affect the outcome of rolls to the detriment of the games we play.

But they do look funky :D

Does anything its worth getting Casino dice? They seem a little expensive (35 for 20! :eek:) I've been playing with gw dice for years and there hardly the best I've ever played with, so I'm looking for new dice.

Also what would people be willing to pay for top-quality dice?
