Dice holders

I have finished gluing my dice holder together, and they look like this:


I will try them out before I paint them, but to get some idea what they would look like I have placed some alongside some of the figures from my collection.



They don't look too bad, even in their unpainted state, and when put alongside the large figures, they seem far less intrusive.

    1. Andy Callan,

      Very true ... and I have a collection of different coloured dice that covers most of the likely combinations.

      All the best,

  2. Or their uniforms match the umpires' cardigans! (On Game of War they took care to avoid it.)

    If troops must be followed by markers to indicate their status, these have the merit of being neat and less obtrusive than the piles of small blue 'Disorganisation' tiddly winks we used to use at Chestnut Lodge.

      Those cardigans were the height of wargaming fashion ... at the time!

      The dice holders are a lot less intrusive than I thought that they might be, and I am looking forward to using them in the near future.

      All the best,

      Bob

  3. I use these on round bases which have been earth textured and tufted. They work really well.

      I'll probably use them 'as is' for the time being, and paint/texture them at a later date.

      All the best,

  5. Leave them as they are, or, paint them plainly or, paint them fancily, or, static grass them. Your choice.

      I'm going to leave them as they are for the present, and paint/texture them at a later date if I think that they need it.

      All the best,

  7. They look pretty good, Bob. Come to think of it, I have a few square whatsits like yours I can use to augment my own dice holders. Reckon knocking those together and my card holders might be my next project...

      They have turned out to be better than I hoped they would.

      I look forward to seeing your dice and card holders, especially as it was your dice holders that convinced me that the idea was a good one.

      All the best,

      Bob
