So, back in 2012 I successfully organised a group purchase of space wolves dice as can be seen on this thread.

http://www.bolterand...le-pictures-up/

I'm basically looking to re-hash this and do the same.

Is anyone interested in going in with me?

I'm aiming to get the dice in the following colours.

Green
http://www.chessex.c...ortex/Green.htm

and Black
http://www.chessex.c...ortex/Black.htm

With this as a logo.

Spoiler

Anyone interested in joining me? I'm thinking about the potential of a second image if we get enough uptake.

Costs are as follows (USD)

10-25 dice: $1.00 per side
26-99 dice: $0.75 per side
100-199 dice: $0.60 per side
200-499 dice: $0.50 per side
500 + dice: $0.42 per side

Last time we managed to get to 500+

There are fees and postage etc, but what I did last time was at the end of the timetable for orders I finalised the number of dice. Then I calculated the shipping costs and the fees etc and sent out a paypal invoice to all involved to pay me.

I then organise everything with Chessex and receive the dice, once I've got them i'll post photos and send out all the details.##

I'll create a google form to manage all the data capture for me for addresses email and dice numbers etc.

Let me know if your interested, hopefully with have some sample pictures shortly.

What does the per side mean? Are six sided dice between $2.52 and $6?

So. I checked with Chessex that they can't use the salamander logo so I would need to give an alternative picture.

I'm thinking a hammer and anvil.

Also the prices are a per dice cost for a 16mm dice.

Rather than the hammer/anvil, what about a stylised flame (e.g. the other shoulder pad, not the Salamander)?

I'm in no position to buy, but it's a mighty idea.

I do like the flame idea and would be down to purchase a set of 20 if this became an option.

I would be interested as well. Especially if the dice were done up with the flames and the XVIII in place of the 6. I'd be down for 10 of each die in Green and Black.

I'd be down for like 25 or 30 myself. It would be super nice to get to the $.60 price break. Probably Vortex Green/gold but Gemini Black-Green/gold is cool too.

I'm waiting on what the GW official dice come out looking like and at what cost when will progress this further depending on update.

As long as GW doesn't do those stupid ass logos on two sides they'd probably be ok.

If GW make dice at all. They didn't for Iron Hands or Raven Guard. Also, if we can get dice made up with the legion number and the flames on the 6 position and pips on the rest of the dice I'm sold. 

 

Would love them in black, green and marbled black and green.

I'll check with Chessex and see what colors are available. I know they usually can do them in Vortex Green/gold and Gemini Black-Green/gold. Both decent Salamander colors. I'll also check to see if the whole order can be done in mixed colors and still get the price breaks. 

 

And yes...logo on the 6 and the rest just pips for sure!

Sent an email asking about available colors and whether color combos can be ordered while still counting towards the total for the price break. I'd love to see 100+ dice ordered so that we can get them for $.60 per. 200+ would be even better but I don't anticipate that happening...unless we extend the offer outside this site. Maybe to the Salamander Fb pages?

Hmmm.. just remember if people fold you're left with the bill. I can for sure drop in for 20 dice total. I just don't see a reason for having more than twenty. That is the largest lot I would roll at once and even that is getting to be a little much.

Yeah...I guess I'd ask for money up front. And I agree...don't need much more than 20. I'll probably get a bit more just in case I lose some or whatever. Especially if it hits the bigger price break of 200 dice at $.60 each.

I'd like 30x Gemini black/green, and 30x Green (gemini black+green or vortex green) and gold, but can settle for any color we all choose

 

Plus, do you want me to talk with some spanish dice creator (Akaro Dice) and see if he can help us? He's kind of a friend of mine

Sure...feel free. If you have an inside to a custom dice maker...would we rather have a Salamander head logo like your avatar (assuming he'd be willing to do that) or stick with something less GW but still identifiable as Salamander?
