Is there anywhere you can buy new dice? Mine are starting to fade fast.

I cant help you sir, but i m shure many people have the same issue.

No idea if you write DoW an email, if they are going to send you replacements !? Rolling Eyes

We should urge DoW to have 'dice' in the online store.

Another option is to make a print from 'dice-drawings' the community has made to 'glue' on to the dice. Do a forum search, i m shure you can find some.

A sollution for NEW dice, could be to cover them with a protective layer.

You input brings me some ideas to transfer to DoW, thx for sharing.

I think there was a thread years ago that said if your set came with faded dice then you could get replacements.

I didn't expect to be playing this so much or I'd have taken them up on it. I thought I was done a few years ago when I put it aside and didn't play it for a year or more. My buddy's set came with a faded board and faded tiles as if the ink was running out of the printer, but his dice are bright!

I had the same problem with faded tiles with my second base game. When playing overlord it doesn't look very good alongside tiles from my first base game. Also the infantry figures in the 2nd base game look like the plastic didn't set very well. But the dice are very bright and remain unused. In fact, I think I have three sets of dice, two unused, but don't know where I got the other set (did they sell replacement dice at one point?)

No, replacement dice have never been available...but there were dice included in the Operation Overlord expansion. Do you own that set? Cool

Oh yeah, that's where they came from.

I've been reluctant to use the 2 nice clean new sets for years. I still use the same set I got years ago, so at that rate I'm good for the next 12 years or so at least.

Actually, I do the exact same thing! I still have my untouched brand new set of dice and I simply use the older ones. Very Happy I guess I don't really need any new ones because I wouldn't use them anyway! Laughing

Recently, I contacted DoW Customer Service regarding my faded dice... They were so nice they sent me a totally free of charge new set of dice.

So yes, you can try both ways. Build your own set with some nice decals you can download or ask DoW's CS.

Cheers
