I came across this site dicepool.com tonight. Thought I might check their stock out and see if I can get a D20 in each factions color. Too bad they won't have the faction symbol in place of the 20 like they would in the dice pack I keep hoping Wizards will come out with. I'm too tired to dig through my stat cards to check out which die color best matches each faction, but they look like they have quite a few options.

If the price were not egregious, I would gladly buy of set of D20's in the color of each faction with the faction symbol as the 20.

That would be awesome. Just afraid it would make each pack of 10 dice cost $50.00 or something.

A few years ago at Gencon I looked into custom D6's (one face a different symbol). It was something like $1-3 each (with a min order of 30ish).

I think moses said he looked into custom D20's. It was expensive, so he bought us generic D20 (mine rolls great).

I remember that Wizkids did that for Mechwarrior. I still have my 3D6 with the Highalnders logo on the 6 spot.

It cost me around $5.00 for the set.

Someone else who played MW (back in the day). Someplace I still have a small collection of the MW dice. They were not like the Battletech dice that chessex made about 10 years ago. Six dice were $10. I sold all mine for $30 for each die (a mom even bought the wolf pair of dice for $90 as a Christmas present).

I'm actually going to try my hand at making some custom d20's. I ordered a 10 pack of blank d20's and am going to attempt to use my dremel on them. I figure once I have the symbols carved into the face I can dark wash the dice to fill the routing in. It may be a pipe dream, but worth a shot.

best of luck with that. I wouldn't even be able to get one of the numbers etched into a side never mind trying to do a faction symbol.

Yea if you can pull off the Mandalorian logo you'd be a god amongst men. The imperial/republic cog may be just as difficult actually

3 down. I managed to get to one gaming store. Got myself D20's for Rebel, Imperial, and Fringe. I'm playing Rebel next Friday so I'll at least have the one I need for that even if i don't get any more by then.
