so i was just sitting down to play my first game and i started looking at the free peoples dice and noticed they dont not have the army sign on them (the flag). they instead have two swords (character) sides. is this normal? is the only way to use a army action as the free people by rolling the special muster/army side?

The major problem with the dice is that each of the Free Peoples blue dice is manufactured loaded. They may show a Will of the West symbol, but they've been designed so that that symbol will NEVER be rolled.

Can someone confirm the dice are correct that way? I got WotR yesterday and also thought the dice were wrong. The manual clearly shows 6 different symbols for them.

Read the rules:

Page 18 of the second edition rules (right side in red):

"Note: The Free People Action Dice have two faces which show the "Character" action, and that on these dice the "Army" action only appears on a face combined with the "Muster" action."

The rules show the six different symbols, not the actual faces of the die.
