There are five possible outcomes for the block dice so which symbol is doubled?

Ok, I am not sure why this question was posted. Just freaking look at your block dice.

6 sides is JUST too much work?

Remember that if you download the rulebook, and don't have access to a purchased boxed game, then you don't have any block dice.

The information should be in the living rulebook, really.

I do not have a block dice. I do not have Bloodbowl. I did have the original game but that used convential dice.

I am not saying that if I did own bloodbowl I would not have posted the question because it would have saved diigging out the blood bowl box that is buried under the warhammer stuff (unpainted) on top of the wardrobe right at the back, only to find when openining the box my three year old daughter had got to the box last time it was out and the dice are now missing.

Donít worry, itís just that some people love to try and be smart and end up proving the exact opposite.

^ What he said.

The whole point of the living rule books is so people play the specialist games, without needing to buy the boxed set for the rule books.

As has been said, just use D6 and assign each number to a result.

I once went to a craft store and bought some small wood blocks, and drew the symbols on them with a sharpie. I ordered block dice from GW as bitz back when they were available.

The d6 thing works well enough. After a game or two you'll get used to it and it'll be just as easy as block dice.

Or you could always buy them from Direct as they are now available seperately? Just a thought?:)

What about the pitch. Do I try and find a draughtsmans board and knock up a grid which won't look great or is there a download to literally cut and paste together. For ebay the postage for the boxed set would be £10 alone let alone the final bid.

Not that I'm aware of. A bit over a year ago they were, but I haven't been able to get them lately.

Do you have a link?

I'm pretty sure I saw some block dice in the online store but there are none now.

There's some guides on coolminiornot on how to make a nice looking blood bowl field.

You can always sign as up as a NAFL member(i think thats the Bloodbowl community isnt it?), that's £5 for a custom coloured set or so you get as part of the registration(plus other member benefits). I can't remember the link myself, but mebbe some plucky warseer member knows?

Another, if a bit more expensive, solution is to order dice from Chessex here (http://www.chessex.com/Dice/Custom_Dice_Home.htm).

Seems a bit expensive, but still workable. I have considered getting dice with five numbered sides and a Slaanesh symbol in place of the 6. That turns out a bit cheaper than making all sides special if I understand the pricing correctly.

For anyone still after BB Block dice:

GW MO might have some in stock, depending on the country you order from (last I heard, GWMO Can and US had some, the others didn't. I believe they were selling them for 50p (UK 50 pence) each, but I'm not 100% on that.

otherwise, take a look at Impact Minatures (http://www.impactminiatures.com/), who are selling a D6/Block dice combination (and very nice they are to!).

You coud use a D6.

1 = Skull (attacker down)
2 = Pow/Skull (both down)
3-4 = Arrow (Puched back)
5 = POW! (defender down unless dodge)
6 = POW (defender down)

I really like the impact block dice... A good way to be unconventional.

GW in the U.S. has them in their online store here:

It was mentioned earlier, but is not applicable anymore since the link is now outdated.

Membership in the NAF gives you a yearly set of official GW-print dice in different colors, last year was green. Membership i the NAF also gives you access to tournament schedules and some limited online resources.

http://www.thenaf.net/

There is no need to be unconventional. Convert your figures if you will, but use regular dice! It's only $10 a year to join, a bargain for a decent set of block dice including shipping.

Impact Miniatures' dice are made by Dice & Games Ltd (http://www.dice.co.uk/fs_specialdice.htm), who also offer a laser-etched custom dice service. They can do all six faces, if you supply the artwork.

Nice of you both to tell the alternatives!

I still wouldn't opt for those when many tournaments require the original print'n'shape (cheaper) dice, included in the membership of the NAF. :)
