Thread: WWII Dice tins!

  1. #1

    Default WWII Dice tins!

    Hi Guys,

    Some of you may know me by my moniker which is identical to my youtube one. I record Battle reports for FOW on a regular basis.

    I have recently joined this game and I have found that trying to get my hands on a dice tin is akin to finding the holy grail for the popular tins. a US generic tin went for 232 USD on ebay a month ago... WTF.

    Anyway, to help the market along i tried my hand at it. I found Aluminium Tins and conducted UV printing to get a high quality finish which was slightly scratch resistant. I then looked at BF's compartment inside and decided against a plastic mould which was cheaper but flimsy. I went with EVA foam, the same kind you find for electronics and medical gear, really nice stuff. The Dice are high quality made with remarkable finishes.

    Another thing i put in the tin was an LOS laser pointer. You can use it to end any LOS clarifications being made at a casual or tournament setting. See the picture for an example.

    Currently I have made 50 of each design with no intention to redo the runs. I sell them at $40.00 USD plus $5.00 Postage to anywhere in the world. I have an intention to make similar tins for japan, US and British tins with the upcoming release of the Pacific theatre. I accept payments via paypal as it is the most secure and everyone generally has an acct. You can contact me here or at col.clausewitz@gmail.com. do let me know which tins you would like, and which email to invoice via paypal. If you are really impatient, you could send the money to my paypal with a note on which design it is you want. Either way i will ship out within one business day.

    They are really cool, but I don't fancy explaining to our local yokel customs guy why I'm importing what looks like German WW2 (apparently can't say the historically accurate N word even on a WW2 sub forum, sigh) memorabilia I will keep an eye out for when you do some US tins though! (Big Red One would be awesome)
