Games Workshop dropped a ton of new hobby product. Take a look at our unboxing the dice sets, Repair Tool, and Tint Set.

Join us as we take a look at the new dice, paints and even a new tool from Games Workshop. First we are going to take a look at the dice and hobby tool.

These new D6 from GW feel like they are made of a quality material as opposed to the material many of the dice companies out there use. They have a pretty good weight to them.

The wound tracker dice have a unique look to them and would be perfect for keeping track of your wounds in an Age of Sigmar game or even rolling them in a game that D10s are needed. They seem to be the same high quality as the D6 dice.

Now you no longer need to be the guy running around the tournament with a broken mini in your hand, searching for someone who thought to bring super glue with them. With this new tool you can always take your glue with you in this handy container that just happens to be connected to a file/seam scraper and to top it all off, there’s even a bottle opener! This should definitely be in your tool arsenal.

Also we have a new tint set to show you from Citadel. This tint set seems to be little pots of pigment to mix with your other paints to get the exact color and hue you desire. The names of ten primarchs adorn the paints, and are even embossed into the bottom of the tray under each bottle as well.

Check out the full video and see what we have to say about this Citadel Tint Set, as well as how to get your very own, below:

Maelstrom Dice: $10

Miniature Repair Kit: $20

Ever had a disaster befall one of your miniatures when far from home? Perhaps your clumsy opponent knocked your Wraithknight over, or an enthusiastic dice roll snapped off your Dunecrawler’s antennae – the Miniature Repair Kit is the perfect tool for maintaining and, well, repairing your miniatures at short notice!

Presented in a handy form factor which can be clipped to your key ring, this is a two-part tool – one side is designed to hold a tube of Citadel Super Glue (not included), and the other is a sturdy metal scraper, designed for removing dried glue so that fresh glue can be placed. It’s a life (well, miniature) saver!

Citadel Artificer Tint Set: $50

The range of Citadel paints is vast and versatile – but expert painters require even more flexibility when bringing their visions of beautifully-painted miniatures to life. The Artificer Tint Set is a selection of pure pigments – the pigments we use to create the Citadel paint range itself, no less – that allow you to incrementally add tints to your paints. Brighten or darken colours, subtly change hues, design and create your own paints! It’s essentially a chemistry set for the dedicated hobbyist.

This set contains 10 3ml pots of Citadel tints, along with 3 mixers for dropping the tints into your pots of Citadel paint (you only need a tiny drop for impressive results!) The tints cover the full spectrum, and are perfect for the experienced hobbyist.

Head over to Games Workshop and to get your hands on these amazing Dice, Repair Kit, and the Citadel Tint Set!

    “feel like they are made of a quality material as opposed to the material many of the dice companies out there use”

    Guess I’ll have to give them a shot. Sounds like they’re made out of solidified childrens tears or something, lol. Anyone use these yet?

    • Hawt Dawg

      You sure? Isn’t the skull a symbol for a 1? 😉

      • ZeeLobby

        But if it feels like i’m rolling gods marbles around in my hand, i’ll have to get some.

        • Hawt Dawg

          I’ll have your Godly marbles right here…

          • ZeeLobby

            Well apparently the competition uses pieces of poo, so anythings better, especially if marked with Games Workshop!

          • Hawt Dawg

            My marbles are pretty close to a poo opening that is for sure…

        • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

          you’ll have to look in Phil Kelly’s trousers for those.

      • DeadlyYellow

        Perhaps the most sensible choice. I mean, what else would you put to convey the worst possible result? The faction symbol? Pfft.

  • Charles Laine

    This review is mostly made from water.

    • georgelabour

      So like most human beings then?

      • zeno666

        And cucumbers

        • rtheom

          Also like most human beings.

  • euansmith

    Ah, our first look at the new D10’s for Age of Emperor! Huzzah!

    • rtheom

      Exactly my thought, but if this means that we’re going to finally get out of the rut that the WS and S/T charts have created, I’m all for it.

    • Knight_of_Infinite_Resignation

      wouldn’t that be nice!

    • Corsair6

      Been waiting for a game (other than FFG ) to go for something other than d6. Custom dice is also better from a sales standpoint. Have you seen third party XWing dice?

  • Will

    Not really a review tbh, just repeating what the GW site says in different words. Are there any negatives e.g. symbol on the 1 instead of the 6 side of the dice, how easy would it be to knock over the wound markers etc. Reviews should help in decision on buying giving pros and cons, I wouldn’t buy them on the above info.

    • zeno666

      Most companies have the symbol (if any) in the 6.
      So it can get a bit confusing if your opponent doesn’t use GW dice as well.

    • John Larkin

      1’s are the skulls on the D6, as pictured above.

    • Frank Krifka

      i don’t know how much of a review you need for dice. I mean it’s not like a 600 page book with characters development and plot twists; it’s dice.

      • rtheom

        Hey, it was kind of a boring week for releases :p

    • rtheom

      Only real downside to the skulls/symbols on the 1, assuming your opponents are total cheater jerks, is that it makes your own faction symbol/the symbol that you like on the dice into the bad thing to roll. If I’m rolling my orc dice, I want the jeering face to mean I did good and killed the enemy, not that I’ve failed.

      • ZeeLobby

        Yeah man, their 1-sided symbols just kill my desire to buy them.

        • rtheom

          Yeah, I don’t blame you. Fortunately, we as gamers are currently drowning in dice options these days. I used to treasure every dice I got with a special symbol growing up because they were so rare. Now there are racks of dice with special symbols at every hobby shop.

      • Inian

        Considering this time it’s a skull though it kind of makes sense. But normally I would agree with you, the symbol should be on the 6 because that’s what you want to see.

        • rtheom

          Yeah, I would consider this an acceptable exception.

  • Moose

    Em-Ells. lol

  • Cylux

    11 minutes 53 seconds and you didn’t even mix a tint with a paint.

    • Hawt Dawg

      At least he made you waste time that long figuring that out.

  • Divergent_Reality

    At least GW is moving away from rounded dice to square edge dice.

  • Talos2

    Getting the tint pots open the first time is like a challenge on the krypton factor. They’re just too small to get a grip on properly so pulling the lid open and breaking the seal without spilling the paint is very tricky. If they weren’t less than half full you’d never do it.

  • Commissar Molotov

    Oooo, that’s one fancy bottle opener!

  • Satyan Patel

    For years and years I’ve been using Chessex D10s for wound markers. Bright yellow with black markings. Extremely cheap, effective and have yet to be damaged.
