Title: New 5mm dice and frames now available!
Post by: Leon on 04 May 2015, 11:05:45 PM
With the continued popularity of our Dice Frames, we've been trying to source 5mm dice for some time now.  Last month we found ourselves a supplier and this week 12,000 tiny 5mm dice arrived at Pendraken/Minibits HQ!

So, with the dice now here, we've added them all to the Minibits website, both with the corresponding 5mm frames and on their own.  We've got 8 colours available at the moment:

- White
- Red
- Blue
- Green
- Black
- Orange
- Purple
- Grey

... priced at 60p per bag of 10 dice, or 1.00 per bag with frames.

Oh poo! I put an order in for the 7mm ones over the weekend.  :'(
Leon, please would it be possible to change my order to the 5mm ones?

These new 5mm's are absolutely tiny, if you ever drop them on the floor I wouldn't have much hope of finding them again...

I find it easier to run my hands lightly over the area and feel for them than to actually look for them.

I bought 50 5mm dice from Irregular a decade ago, I still have 48.

Can someone do me a favour - post a pic of a frame and die on a penny as a base: it can be a plain penny I need a idea of size.  Also how many frames can you get on a 2p.

All my stuff is based and I'm not sure I want to rebase just to put a frame on, so I'll add a separate one behind the unit on the penny.  I might do a multi frame base (hence the 2p) so I can track multiple things - IABSM Kills/Shock/Reserved dice comes to mind - use different colours for each stat.
