Does anyone other than valley games make replacement dice for C&C:A? The VG ones are wooden, and I'm sure I recall reading somewhere there were plastic ones available.

I don't know where you might have read that.

For me, I found some blank dice that are smaller than what comes with CCA and larger (and much heavier) than the VG dice and put the dice stickers on those.

I only know of the two flavours coming with the 1st edition base game (hollow) and 2nd/3rd edition and 1st expansion (solid), the Valley Games dice (which I use) and these beauties:
(unfortunately they are not for sale)

After the above picture of the custom dice were posted here the first time, I contacted a few custom dice makers on the internet. One of them said he could make the above dice but the price would be about thirty to forty dollars a set of seven. And that would be with multiple sets. I found that it is almost impossible to get one set of seven dice made at a resonable price.

I'm having a very good result with VG's wooden dice by spraying them with clear acrylic paint. They are holding up very well and the design on the symbols is not wearing at all.

I came across this website a while back. Maybe they can help at £1 a die. Not sure about colour symbols but worth a look [geekurl=http://www.warbases.co.uk/custom-dice/4566752300]Warbases[/geekurl]
