    I had awesome dice on Friday night, then on Saturday I paid the toll to the dice gods! Even though I was still rolling 6s, I could not roll them when needed!

    I finally broke down and bought some casino dice. The GW dice rolled way to many 1s for it to be a coincidence. At least now my dice roll in the expected distribution.

    Cheers!

    I have two sets of casino dice, but they are so large, if I roll them and they hit something, they could damage some terrain or models. I usually use them for objectives and such. They are nice. I always think of them as the dice that broke someone's dreams....

    I find that dice love you as much as you love them... I only buy colors that I think are awesome and then I tell them how much I love them and I let them sleep in my bed under my pillow... (just don't tell my wife :jawdrop: )

    Okay, I'm just kidding about that last part. But seriously, I feel like my dice roll better when I tell them they are awesome... 'Heart of the dice.' :p

    You need to give them love and borders. Tell them that you value them and that they are pretty/handsome, but also tell them sternly what you want. I tend to keep my dice so that the number I don't want to get, usually 1, is facing upwards. The logic being, that when they have spend most of their time that way, they don't want to end up in that position again. On the other hand, that doesn't help me get any 6s either...

    Luck is merely statistics taken personally.

    There is this articile on Warseer.

    http://www.warseer.com/forums/showthread.php?65531-Do-you-roll-a-lot-of-1s-A-40k-must-read

    GWS dice due tend to rolls 1's more frequently when tested. I'd use casino dice and just get a box to roll into.

    I actually get dice sets from Wizards of the Coast; the ones they make for Dungeons and Dragons. They have a lot of sexy color schemes on the dice and they tend to like you more :)

    I wonder how the special edition Storm of Magic dice would compare. They have full corners, though much of each face is ground away to make the symbol for the winds of magic. I may have to try them for a few games and see how it goes. I generally have terrible luck with my GW and Chessex dice.
