Anybody have any suggestions where I could get my hands on some suitably Tzeentchy dice? Blues/whites/changes/swirls?

All I have now are just plain dice and the stupidly overpriced chaos dice from GW(only 8? WTF! can i do w/ 8 dice?), and it's just not my nature to not go all out.

Suggestions/links?

You could custom design your dice here

Chessex rules.
Chessex can even make custom dice if you're not happy with any of the six thousand different dice designs that they already offer ..... even GW dice are made by Chessex.
For my Nurgle army I've got vomit-coloured dice from Chessex.

*sings*
Chessex, Chessex, I love thee!
Chessex, Chessex, you're the dice provider for me!

thanks guys. picked up 36 12mm http://www.chessex.com/Dice/Gemini/BluePurple.htm

I was torn between that at 12 of the larger ones, but in the end, i like to throw tons of dice, so 36 would be better.

Thanks. I think they're suitably Tzeentchy. It was them or the gold/blue ones.

Wow, some of the dice from the Q-Workshop cost $7.50 USD per die. If you wanted 20, it would run hundreds of dollars.

I shudder to think what the custom jobs would cost...

Aren't those the dice that roll nothing but 1's? :D

Shhhh... He may not have noticed yet....

Yes, those dice roll an inordinate amount of 1's but that is the fate dealt to them by the great Lord Tzeentch.

LOL! Expensive of course but perfectly balanced to Las Vegas dice standard.
I bought quite a few dice and can testify to that.

The Artillery and Scatter dice are also beautifully designed.

Didn't you know? All Chessex dice do.
My bright green ones have been degraded to Spare Dice Duty after they failed me one too many times:

The vomit-coloured ones ("Festive Mardi Gras" dice) are fine though. Most of the time. :P

Anyway .... Good choice, Warsmith. Our local Tzeentch player uses these: http://www.chessex.com/images/Artwork/reddie-in-circle.jpg but yours are more Tzeentchy. :cool:

especially as I don't paint with golds/yellows on my models very much, but rather go for more mutating colours like blues and purples. I'm excited.

Ah see, you play the wrong army, Come join the cult of the Dark prince, and yo can sanctify your dice in other fluids. (I shan't go further, but you get the idea.)

You just have to assess which dice do which job. For me, the purple dice tend to roll high, so they're for combat and magic, while the pink ones roll low, so they're for psychology/break tests.

That Chessex site sure had brilliant dice, I just might order something from them :)

Why did you put pink spider in the text? He never played in a band named that.

Chessex make some pretty impressive dice. I've got some bronze-coloured ones.

Go for the bigger ones, they're more pretty :)

I would have, but being a tzeentch beastman player, i have to roll tons of dice and keep dice set aside, so 12 wouldn't have been enough.

I did consider doing that, but I've always said that people with loaded dice need to get neutered and I'd like to keep my dangly wotnotz for another while. ;)

song pink spider. And iirc it's a nickname he had gotten after making that. Least among the net.
I've had many people bring up the subject when i bring my mascote. (spider battlemech painted pink)
I never mentioned anything about it beeing his bandname. Though if u wan't that x-japan will be most known.

No problem there. My deamon horde has plenty of deamonete's :D
