That's not a high horse, that's a normal horse. You're just exceptionally short

Why, I was only reacting on your idea to use the Aussie pitches for the Bloodbowl. At last that's what I made of you quote.;) So if you can't bring them to Nottingham, bring them to Stuttgart instead.

But trust me Ian, If I win the lottery, you will be the first I'll invite over together with Ramsay and Jim! :wink:

Guess that will never happen huh. :(

Would I be correct in assuming they would have a cow if I used the original cardstock minis from the original BB set? I have my first edition, complete with the skaven from WD, and would not be afraid to use them.

That has been tried before - by Hoomin possibly, I can't remember - and GW were not amused. In other words, they won't let you do it.

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.


Strange argument, as surely if that was the case, you'd roll more 6's and less 1's on a standard D6 as the 6 comes out (albeit slightly) lighter than the 1?

I agree - if the dice are made by a reputable company, my understanding is that they can "correct" the dice for the weight removed by the extra engraving for a logo.
Though you pay more for that I suppose.
