Whether or not we include border decorations will impact the overall design.

Since we've elected to use pips instead of numbers,we can't have too much other imagery on the 1-5 faces. So if we have border decorations, they need to be simple and inobtrusive in order to ensure that the pips can be read quickly and accurately.

In order to give a better idea, here are some images. Keep in mind that the design of the skull pips has not been finalized, so the style, size, and arrangement shown below is purely conceptual.

Border Decorations:

No Border Decorations:

To give you a better idea of the realm of the possible, here are some dice with different border decorations from Q Workshop.

Runic White & Black:

Pathfinder Second Edition:

Starfinder:

Also, the first run of B&C dice had a border:

Some limits to keep in mind:
  • The maximum width of a painted area is 1.8 mm.
  • The minimum width of an engraved area is 0.14 mm.
  • The minimum distance between engraved areas is 0.35 mm.
The thickness of the red box above is approximately 0.5 mm. If we want a thicker area, the skulls will have to be moved closer together and/or reduced in size. If we vote for border decorations, we can dicker over the actual design later. For now, all we're voting on is whether or not to have some sort of border decorations on the 1-5 faces.

Woo, got the first vote in. Also I just LOVE how those first batch look especially with that logo, I know it ain't part of this poll but they do look really slick with that design and logo.

There is no time limit for this task, there is no deadline. My oath is to solemnly complete the armies I have now, to see it that they can have their glory. Paint will be stripped from the old in need, thick may it be like ceramite I will see it removed so that plastic and metal alike may see light of new paint. Models yet to be, boxed and in darkness will be assembled with due care and attention. For this task I am permitted to still buy the supplies needed to do my task but not one model more.

No symbols or decor other than pips = easier to read.

I understand that the majority will decide the design, but God, do I hope we do not go for skulls and any decor.

Pretty close this one. At this point there will always be a comparably large amount of people being unhappy with the result. sweat.gif

Personally I like the borders and having something other than pips all the time would be nice. Really stand out when used.

Not as decisive an outcome this time around. Majority rules - for this batch. I'm already planning next year's batch, though, and it will be different.
