I just got my 12mm dice in, so here's a cozy picture of those dice as used in an (admittedly staged) game of Brawlers:

I loved the theme of Brawlers, totally appropriate to the mechanics and enriched by the art. Superbly done!

I'm afraid I fell into the "unconvinced" camp on the mechanics though - it just felt so random that I lost interest in the game as a whole. It felt like there could be a great game here, maybe with something as small as using one of the mint tin types that have the pvc window on top? Maybe after the flip, each player has 10-15 seconds to shoogle the tin until the "skirmish" ends - thereby giving players more immediate feedback as to whether or which movements actually do have a skill based effect. Plus you'd then be looking down into the little town lining that looks so awesome.
