Hi,

I just found these dice, one for each faction, "D10 Faction spindown dice".

http://www.legionsupplies.com/index.php?main_page=product_in...

I wonder what use they have? Maybe for the upcoming campaing or the boss decks???

Some people just use them for health tracking (rather than those cards we got).

God are they ugly!

Spindown d10 dice are very useful to keep track of your life. I don't use the cards and don't want to be writing during the game, so I use one dice to keep track of 10s, and one for the rest. They have no other use, no card uses dice in the game and I don't think there will be in future expansions either.

The fact that they're spindown makes them almost useless as random number generators, but very convenient as life trackers: just turn them on their side to up or down your life total by one of their unit, as opposed to scanning all faces with a regular die, which I'm currently using and is tedious.
Thanks for sharing, I had no idea they were releasing these

Agreed. Those faction symbols in the zero spot look kind of...melt-y. But maybe it's just a dirty numeric paint job. Either way, you can get a ton of D10 elsewhere for much less, and in the same colors.


Mine are black with white fumes and gold digits. I like them but they're not spindown so they're a pain, and sometimes it's difficult to figure the figure in a heaviy white fum :S

EDIT: they're from this line

I like using d6s to track health. Just use a couple of those Chessex bricks.

It's much more satisfying watching your opponent's health dwindle as he loses more and more dice.

How the hell do you track life with a single d10? Shouldn't this pack have 2 dice per color?

I get using the dice over cards, but this pack seems to be an especially bad and overpriced way to do it.

Nailed it.
No, I totally get that, but at that price, for cheap looking dice, and not even being percentile dice, I don't know why anyone would get them.

Me neither. That's about the price I paid the dice I mentioned above and there were 10 or 12 of them.
