Have a look at the rules pack:

Has to be GW Oli.

Also in rule pack is that ONLY GW boards will be used. No home made stadiums or pitches. Seeing as they provide all the boards I cant see that being an issue.

And also the same with block dice. Has to be the white GW ones or NAF ones. Apparently there was feedback that players where having trouble reading some of the more obscure alternatives. That is in the rule pack.

What about the normal D6's?

I'm thinking of getting a bunch of D6's with the League logo replacing one of the numbers, as long as both players are able to use those dice if they wish would there be any issues with this?

After all, there are plenty of GW made dice that have various 40K, LOTR or fantasy battle symbols replacing one of the numbers.

I've played in a few 40k GT's and never had a problem using my club D6's.

GW staff are not noted for their consistency on rules decisions...

TBH I really don't like to see "club" dice used in any game. They tend to roll the image more frequently than they should (which is why I'm more than happy for my opponents to use them where the image is the 1 :lol: ). If GW are going to outlaw non-GW models, boards and block dice then they should also include D6 in this as well. :evil:

I'm coming round to that same opinion regarding 'novelty' D6s. I'm ditching mine in favour of normal D6s.

Only novelty D6 I own are the Flame Bowl dice. But when I play, I tend to offer them to my opponents to use as well anyway...

The solution, ya' Nancies, is to boycott the GW event and heavily attend all the alternatives....

Save quite a few quid in the bargain....

I'm rather fond of all the cool dice you see around the place with the flames and the comedy poos and everything. However, obviously they shouldnt be used if there is even a question about their validity... a shame but thats the way it has to be :(

What I would like to know is a list of trusted dice manufacturers. When I buy or recieve dice it would be cool to know where they came from and check if they're tournament-worthy.

I have some Flames of War official dice I used to use, and they're not even shaped correctly (to many 1's rolled, in case you're wondering).

I wonder if I can get some NAF points back for having used misshapen dice? :wink:

I'd imagine we'll be alright, just explain what they are before kickoff and give the oppo the choice to use them too or say no. Everyone's happy then.

Unless GW outlaws it, ofc. ;)

The problem isn't the manufacturer; it's the process of having a logo on one side. This is normally a larger engraving area than the other sides and hence lighter and therefore (albeit slightly) with a weighting towards that side being face up.

In the independent Warhammer tournaments they got to be very popular ("club" dice) because they looked cool, but are now regarded with suspicion and so are now used instead to mark effects (wounds, etc)
