I don't get the need for these dice. The combat dice of HeroQuest were plain and simple genius with a perfect distribution of outcomes, easily modded.

Or maybe put a community order in with Chessex http://www.chessex.com/Dice/Opaque%20Di ... mainpg.htm for custom dice. If you order over 500 it works out very cheap per dice.
Ordered before and were great quality.

to be honest 3d printed dice are going to look rough/ expensive (delete as appropriate) there is a lot of be said for the nice polished bone of a proper dice :D

Actually getting a lazer cutter next month, so would be able to engrave some dice then :D Seems picking up blank ones is easy enough

Is my maths right on this?
$0.45 per side making each dice $2.70 at an order of 500 dice that comes to $1350!
Distributed amongst us as 6 dice to a pack $16.20 that means 83 people would have to take part in order to get the 500 dice order.
$16.20 still seems a bit steep for 6 dice, that's £10.48 or 14.46 Euros.... I am not convinced.
Not including the shipping costs.

The white dice on the referenced German site are the same as the regular HQ dice - distribution wise. The dice themselves are plastic and a tad bigger.

Thantos, as an expert in casting resin, would you think it's practical to home-cast dice?
I or someone in here could make a decent 3d model, we could have printed one master copy (would be around 10€ in detail resin at Shapeways), or you print it, and then we could make a mould from it and cast our own dice.

Edit:
Motivated by this thread, I started working on a high definition model to upload at shapeways, but I just realised that I already did one some time ago. It's not as detailed as the new one will be, but better than the one linked in the original post. I just made it publically available:

Have a look ;)
