Hi,

Opened my box of 3rd ed Space Hulk (very pretty indeed) and did the first thing that should come to anyone's mind - rolled the "marble effect" dice on a flat surface.

Is it just me or do they roll really WEIRD? Tumbling and curving as they roll. I'm convinced they're off balance.

Anyone else noticed this?

Not that it's the hardest thing to replace...

haven't noticed any strange behavior.

i just find them really boring and will probably replace them with something darker and more in line with the setting - pimp my space hulk :)

I'm glad I wasn't the only one who thought bone coloured dice was an odd choice - I would've thought black, purple or red dice would have made more sense given the setting. Ah well, it's not like I dont' have enough dice already! (just shy of 200 D6's of various colours ought to see me through... And yet still I want more)

Mine look less like a marble effect - and more like they had brown and cream colour plastic left over and didn't know what to do with it.

i think they shouldve done dice with blood drops on them.

Well, it's not that hard to drip blood on some dice...

...ohhh, you meant stylized, Blood Angel drops? Yeah, that could be tougher ;)

Mine look tasty... almost edible.. ;)

I think they chose the dice colour so that you can FIND them amongst all the dark board pieces :)

I like them, although I do seem to roll a disproportionate number of 1s and 6s. :eyebrows:

Dude... LOL!

I didn't get any strange "effects" from the dice.

My dice do roll strange on a hard smooth service. I think the corners are rounded more severely than normal.

I found two of the dice I had rolled bizarrely, the rest where normal.

They roll OK. Look like candies though. Keep them away from little kids.

They should have done two red and three purple/blue dice :D

except the assault cannon uses 3 dice! i found this a pain as it meant passing a dice across the table, otherwise as u suggest would have been perfect.

I think these dice are the same size and design as blood bowl blocking dice. They arent the best rollers but when you are running out of time you dont want every roll to take up 10 seconds anyway. I pointed this out to my opponent in my first game when he was shaking his dice for ages before each roll :D

See i thought they were supposed to look like they were bone dice that were blood stained? That's what mine look like :confused:
Maybe the colour mixes varied through production as they were all custom?, but my marble is a very red brown, like dry blood on a bone die.

Okay, three red and three purple/blue.

Jeez you people don't want much do you? The best terminator figures ever seen, great stealers, tight rules set, a ton of high quality board sections, counters et al even a lickle egg timer and you're still not happy! Ooh, is there another dice?

Kids these days. :)

Mine seem to roll well enough. No abnormal results reported in the 5 games of SH that I played today. They do look like candy tough.

They roll a bit odd, but no statistical problems when I've been rolling them.

God this whole SH thing is ruined, stupid GW and their stupid dice...GAWD!!!

Seriously though I really like the bone dice, they fit my DW army perfectly and if anyone doesn't want theirs I'd be happy to take them ;)

Mine roll Ok although they've disappeared into my dice box so numerous and variously coloured dies get using in our SH games.

I like them, but next time I go to the not-so-local FLGS I am going to use them in 40k. You can never have too many dice :) .

My girlfriend was watching me play last night, and thought I'd got melted chocolate over them. I pointed out they were meant to look rubbish.

Aren't they the same as the fantasy dice? I would have thought they'd use the 40k dice with the aquila on.
