I'm going to boost the game with making some custom dice for it, I gave a friend that can engrave any design.

I know that FFP proposed a dozen of different dice options during Kickstarter, but can't say that amazed of them.

Could anyone propose some better thematic options rather than just replacing 6 side with Colts/Tentacle/Marshal badge symbols?

Thanks,

Easy, pistol drum with one, two, etc empty chambers. Or loaded chambers, whichever suits you.

I feel like SOB fairly cries out for custom dice. Not just clever piping. FFG-style dice. I'm not sure why frog went with standard dice. Outside of all the obvious reasons.

Some kind of a casket image for the six. What would be cool would be to incorporate numbers with the images. A casket with a six, six guns with a 4 in between etc.

Frankly, I love that it uses standard dice.
I truely loath custom dice for games.
If a game requires dice with funky non-numeric symbols it actually gives me pause.
Like, it wont directly stop me from getting a game, but if I'm on the fence, custom dice will push me toward the "not buying" side.

I have to agree with you. It is one thing to make your own custom dice for it (IE: Engraved or personalized) but I don't like having to use custom dice if you have to go through a company to buy them, unless it is for Convenience sake (buying more peril die) It is actually what has kept me from some of the FFG games because I prefer to have multiple sets of dice to switch between.

I'm not keen on custom dice either, but for SoB I did buy some lovely purple gem dice, some darkstone shards and liquid darkstone.

They all came from TheDiceShopOnline.co.uk and were and awful lot cheaper than what FFP offered in the KS

The liquid darkstone are Eldritch Gems in amethyst (they look a lot better than the photo shows).

I do like cool dice. Pretty colors etc.
I don't like dice that have silly symbols on them instead of numbers.
Sure, if you wanna replace the 1 with a skull and the 6 with an explosion (or something) that's fine. But if you make me memorize what a tentacle, knife, gun, and skull all mean (because they all have different mechanical effects in game)
I'm not gonna like it.
