Starfighter Dice are now available for pre-order – dice.star-ranger.com
Pre-orders will be taken through June 25th.

More than just a d6, Starfighter Dice are also counters on the gaming table for fighters, missiles and more.

In many space games, fighters and missiles on the game table are represented by counters or miniatures and sometimes a regular d6. Starfighter Dice takes the d6 a step further by replacing the normal round pips with outlines of missiles or fighters, making the die more identifiable and interesting on the table.

These dice are not intended to fully replace stands of small fighter miniatures. They are an alternative for large games with lots of fighters, when you don't have the right miniatures, or if you just want something different.
Starfighter Dice start as a blank 16m black cube and the pips are laser engraved on all 6 sides.
Don't forget, Starfighter Dice can still be rolled like any other d6 to generate a random result.

Got to dice.star-ranger.com for images of the dice, how to order them and all the options you have for different shaped pips for fighters, missiles and plasma weapons.

Very nice! I have been thinking of getting involved in space gaming and now I think this is going kick me over to do it, plus those are some really cool dice!

I was just thinking with such a large selection to pick from, which is totally great but with just the fighter dice alone could be one heck of a fighter dog fight just using the dice.

Okay I will not be able to join in on this early ordering, and will have to wait for another opportunity later.

Sounds as if Dean's planning on having them available after fulfilling pre-order, though price might go up, so small loss.

While I'll pick up some fighters, I think I'm more excited about the missiles, especially for SML's in Full Thrust. Counter AND randomizer. ;->=
