I already ordered my replacement dice but I have a question. If I buy a second copy of the game, will I be able to do a second order to get replacement dice for it? Just wondering because I don't know how your order department would track that. Thanks!

I recently purchased a second copy myself and just put the order in for it. Yes it is not a problem. Also, they added a check box on the bottom to automatically add an Earth Elemental to the order. I suppose it saves them shipping cost if you are going to order both anyway.

Hi, I registered quite awhile ago and did request the new dice. How long should one wait before contacting DofW to be certain they have that request? Thanks....

I ordered my replacement dice and they arrived in record time. It was literally three days via post. Top notch customer service there.

When I opened the package, however, I was disappointed to discover that the dice looked like the same wooden ones that came in the game. I thought I saw a thread on this forum somewhere saying that DOW was going to put out "laminated" dice that would not wear out. Was this latest offer just a stop-gap and are they planning on issuing higher quality dice later or is this it? Anybody know?

I remember having the trouble with dice sides wearing off with the old HeroQuest board game from Milton Bradley.

The do look the same. I expected them to have the indented symbols like Memoir 44. I'm planning to spray the replacement dice with Krylon Crystal Clear before I use them just to be safe.

I've been meaning to bring this up, but was waiting for some others to broach the subject as I didn't want to be ungrateful - but, yeah, what exactly is the difference between the original dice and the replacements? I, too, was expecting some indentation or such. I've only played with the replacements a couple times, and though no wear on the lore symbols, yet, a flag symbol chipped on one of them and the colors did smear a bit (the bitiest of bits, but still a bit Smile ).

Anyway, not a big deal to me, as the game design/mechanics are everything I want, and on top of that, I've been playing the majority of my BattleLore sessions on vassal, and the digital dice are showing no signs of deterioration Very Happy

Don't know if this is of any comfort to you, but I've had my comeuppances a couple times since then. Lastly against Athmok and his nigh invincible (read: flagshy and colorblind) Gobbos Very Happy

Hello.
I was informed that my replacement dice were shipped on 1/24/07 and I have yet to receive them.
I can only assume that I should have received them by now, yes?

When reading that some players received their dice in record time i m getting somewhat confused.

I ordered my replacement dice 2 weeks ago and I didn t get any notification at all.

Do you get an confirmation mail or do they just ship without confirmation?

Got mine!! Thanks DOW!!
The paint on them seems sturdier that their counterparts', though I was really hoping to see the icons etched, and maybe the dice made of plastic...

I am very certain that I ordered my replacement dice - but I havent received even a notification. This was quite a while ago - what is the process for checking on this order? I ordered the elemental the same day and received that weeks ago, so I figured I would follow up.

This "Sticky" post seems to have gotten unstuck. I found it halfway down the page.

Re:Replacement BattleLore Dice Now Available Mon, 22 October 2007 09:52
hi all,
i'm a new owner of BL; after approximately 10 games, some of my dice are quite worn out - almost as bad as those on photo in "dice replacement" link. My BL code starts with BL11, not BL10, so it seems not to qualify in dice replacement option. Is there any chance to get better quality dice somehow?

Welcome aboard, pawell. For what it's worth, I got the replacement dice and they seemed to be exactly the same as the first dice as far as wearing goes. Others seem pleased with the replacements though, so maybe you and I just got a bum sets. Not making any promises, but DoW seems to be very accomodating to situations like this - give their customer service a try Smile

oh well, thank you for directing me towards customer service, i'll give it a try. I'll also try to contact the local reseller and ask if they have any experience with this issue - and we'll see.

this would be ok if they really were old dice - but i would expect that the original paint will survive more than 10 games on new ones... Of course, if there's no other solution, i'll have to do it this way.

Same problem here -- I also have a new set with the improved dice, and within a month I'm already seeing wear.

For now, I bought 12 regular-sized d6 dice and colored all 6 sides. Shocked I kept the relative facings the same as the BattleLore dice, and they work well enough for us. I'm sure this probly weighted them all wrong or something, but for me and the kids we don't care.

I would love to have a set of engraved dice (as long as they aren't expensive), or a set of dice with recessed faces like the dice that come with Heroscape flag-bearers.

When I got my replacement dice, I suspected that they might have the same problems because they looked the same (no apparent extra coating and the images weren't recessed like the Memoir '44 dice are), so I sprayed them with Crystal Clear and they've been all right so far.

I prefer dice made from impact-resistant, hard plastic, with recessed images, carefully balanced, but no one seems to make them anymore...

It worked for me; I put two thin coats of "purity seal" (which is the flat one, not the glossy type) from Citadel and it's working great. over thirty games so far...

Contacting the customer service proved to be the solution, they will send me replacement dice despite the fact that the code of my game doesn't match requirements. I simply love them Smile

I just got the game used (however it looked unplayed) and it is from the first printing. The dice looked nice and new and colorful. I thought maybe I got lucky and didn't get the bad dice. Five games later, I open up my box, take out the dice and notice that the red color on one of the dice has smeared so much that it made the entire side red. I rub my finger on it and my finger turns red.

I was going to wait for the updated Call To Arms cards before requesting the new dice, but it looks like I can't wait any longer. I put my order in today.
