KICKSTARTER: METADICE

Meta Dice are 16mm PolyEurea plastic etched dice designed to be compatible with a variety of pen & paper RPGs. These dice can, for instance, double as Fudge/Fate dice and regular d6. They can also be used with games such as Burning Wheel, Mouse Guard, Torchbearer, the FU RPG, Dying Earth, Ubiquity, Prince Valiant, Story Engine, Foreign Element, and countless others that use a success/failure dynamic. The hit locations correspond with those used in the Warhammer 40k RPGs, the older Warhammer Fantasy RPG, Reign, the OD&D supplement ‘Blackmoor,’ and many, many others.

PAINTING MY DWARVEN FORGE TILES

Last year, my awesome wife gave me a huge box of Dwarven Forge tiles from the Kickstarter. She got me five sets plus all the extras that came with it. That’s a lot of stuff!

I’ve been collecting Dwarven Forge terrain for a while now. I have two Cavern Sets, 3 Ogre Dens, 2 Room & Passage sets, 2 Classic Dungeon Room sets, 1 Fantasy Floor set, 1 Wicked Editions set, 1 Wicked Editions #2 set, 1 Narrow Passage set, 2 Octagonal Room sets and 1 Sci-Fi Alpha Expansion set. I also ordered four sets of the six-piece 6″ x 6″ floors.

The Zombies were a challenge for all of the Heroes despite their amazing Sentinel rules.

But the cool thing about these Kickstarter tiles is the fact that they are made of a material that is nearly impossible to break. And that’s awesome seeing that I have a two-year-old who loves puzzles and really, really likes to play with my Dwarven Forge stuff.

So I started painting them this weekend. I have finished 40 pieces. The awesome part is there’s so many more to go.

I recently participated in a Kickstarter from IRONHEARTARTISANS to purchase a set of Weird War Dice. I chose to get a set of the green USA dice. I plan to use them in my miniature games. I should be getting them in the mail sometime in August. When they show up, I’ll post a picture of them. Keep an eye out for more cool Weird War stuff coming from IRONHEARTARTISANS in the future.
