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.

 Cool

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.
