Extra movement dice were pretty popular after they went out of stock, so you may have a hard time finding them. There are occasional stories of people buying used Runebound sets which are missing the dice.

Also, the earliest versions of the dice were not etched and just used stickers for the faces.

In the file section I believe there are templates to make your own stickers for the dice.

thanks, and I would only be interested in the etched die...hey, worth a shot...and with the new edition coming out i'm hoping someone has a game hanging around, maybe missing cards, crushed box, etc. and it has zero value...and it's no longer being played...

that's the guy/girl i'm looking for!

I know that chessex makes custom dice with any symbol that you provide, we have made orders for some games and the final product is awesome. I don't know what is the minimum number that you need to order that makes chessex print those dices. Anyway, I would be interested if someone asks whistle

If the OP doesn't mind, I'll jump in too - if anyone has an old and incomplete Runebound 2nd Edition game to sell, I'm looking for just the board as a replacement part.

(Caveat: I won't play stupid prices, so if you plan to jack up the pricing to stupid numbers don't bother contacting me.)

There are several online services that offer to make custom dice (Like Chessex mentioned above, or CrystalCastle linked below). The minimum amount purchased (that I've found) for all of these services is 25 dice at $1-$1.25 per side (price range dependent on size/colors/materials/etc of the dice chosen - size is really the deciding factor here from my experience).

So, buying them yourself you'd end up with 25 dice for like $150-$190 + shipping. Not something I'm really willing to do. However, if 5 of us pitched in, we could all get our custom etched movement dice for about $30-$37.50 + shipping. I am quite skilled with illustrator/Photoshop/etc and would easily be able to submit them the necessary materials to create us dice. Anyone interested in going in with me on this? I just barely got the last of the expansions for Runebound 2E that I was missing. So now I want my etched dice heh.

The process. We'd all choose the custom dice we want (colors, sizes, etc). I'd order them all with the movement etched faces. Once they arrived I'd ship out the other dice to those that went in on it. This would really be the only way to afford-ably buy just 5 dice.

Custom Boards
Additionally, for those interested. I have also had a couple custom boards made here (can be purchased individually)...

https://www.thegamecrafter.com/publish/product/LargeSquareBo...

They aren't Runebound-quality boards by any means, but for ~$15 out the door, they are really quite something. I used them to have a custom board printed for my market variant, which I'm quite pleased with...

Card Boxes
For those inclined to get a little more 'epic level' with their packaging, as I do. I use Ultra Pro deck boxes to put my cards in. For games with half-size cards (Mansions of Madness, DungeonQuest, etc). I utilize a laser cutting service called Ponoko to order little seperators for these deck boxes so I can put two mini-card decks in them instead of full sized cards. I'd be happy to share any of those ordering materials upon request if any of you fine people would also like to package your games using this approach.

General Info about how epic Ponoko services are
It's also worth noting that using Ponoko you can create really incredible stuff. I utilized their service earlier this year to laser cut acrylic plates which I then used to construct the case for an arcade system that I built for my wife that plays the game I made to propose to her. They're really quite amazing - cutting, etching, etc. They have all sorts of materials as well.
