Default New GW Dice Available

Caught this little tidbit over at Warseer:

Quote:
Dice Cube $6
Fast Attack Bag $50
Tactical Backpack $75
Heavy Support Bag $125

I just noticed these on the online store. I had not heard of or seen them until now, hope it's not old news. It caught me by surprise
.

Yeah, the bags are old news...but I thought the dice deserved a mention. Looks like they come in a die-shaped cube containing 27 dice, including artillery and scatter dice.

I honestly can't comment on the $6 US price tag, as I've not been on the market for dice...well...ever, really. But it seems reasonable at first glance.

wow, well that seems fantastic value from where I'm stood. Loving the large dice they all come in too. I'll prolly be getting this since you can never have too many dice.

Edit: us brits are looking at 4 for a cube. Considering the tin they did with 33 dice in was 6, this doesn't seem as amazing, but for me, the big plastic dice they all come in makes it.

yeah, i thought the dice set would be some gw price, like 15 bucks. but 6 bucks, that's a really good price. probably better than chessex. everything else is a typical gw price.

Not a shabby deal, though I wish Chessex would make an Arty and scatterdice, I like their dice much more then the plain dice.

I'm loving the dice. I think Gw has two seperate production departments. "The Department of fucking expensive junk" and "the department of cheap, good stuff" I'm definatly getting these dice, the big dice they come in is very very clever, especially as a round reminder.

Sounds cool! Also, I find that so many people on this forum bag GW's pricing, yet still collect 40k. Funny innit?

Project logs:
The Black Wolves (SM) - List Written
Ultramarines Chapter (yes, I said chapter) - Test model painted
7th Annihilators (SM) - Nearly finished (no log)

I'll pick up the dice, as dice are never a bad thing.

...though the $125 empty bag...yeah, I'll laugh openly at my LGS staff if they even attempt to promote that thing.

Level me up! I, too, wish to storm the lands of mortals reaping what is truly mine...but for now, I am but a wee spot of energy...

Clicky!
