Hi guys---



Does anyone know offhand who might have crafted this die?


** expired eBay auction **




I'm actually looking for a smaller, normal plastic version of this d20, which was my favorite d20 in my old college days.  I still have that die, but all of the copper-colored paint/coating has rubbed off, and it kind of looks like a camoflague d20 now ;)  When new, my old d20 looked much like the above one, except that the coppery color was a bit darker (bronze-ish perhaps) since it was painted and not actual metal.



Any ideas?

Hi Allen,

The only one that I can find at the momemt is (of the all-metal type):

http://www.em4miniatures.com/acatalog/C ... _Dice.html

The Crstal Caste website seems to be non-responsive (atm):

I remember the original dice you are talking about but cannot remember who made them.

I will investigate and get back to you.

Hi Allen,

If you are referring to the plastic dice with the metal coating, unfortunately they were produced by Armoury and they are no longer around.

I am Lance, and that would make sense, since Armory products were pretty common back in the NJ/MD/PA/DE areas.  Hmph.  Thanks, I guess I'll have to start digging around for old Armory dice now (or just stop being lazy and repaint the one I have ;) ).

Hi Allen,

I actually have an email in to Chessex to see if they still offer them (since they merged with Armoury).

I will let you what I find out.
