Set of 36d6 speckled "Urban Camo" gray and black dice with yellow pips for numbering. This dice cube contains 12mm six-sided dice (12mm is significantly smaller than the standard 16mm dice). The Urban Camo look is perfect for gritty street combat, for war games or RPGs like Shadow Run.
One of the winners of the Obsidian Portal dice giveaway contest chose these dice to go with his Shadowrun Rigger, Miner. This was his one-sentence character description of a character fitting the Urban Camo dice cube: "“What could go wrong?” he asked before promptly tumbling out of the driver side window to land in the fast lane of the expressway." Clearly this is a character in need of more dice.

Hoi chummer! I ordered these because I enjoy shadowrun and needed lots of dice, so awesome dice was the fixer with the solution!
Unfortunately they're different than pictured: The dice are actually darker; more like an asphalt color. The texture and crafting is very nice. My gripe lies in the pips: they just look plain bad. Lots of thin sections. If I got these from a store in town I wouldn't buy them. Due to the fact I'm in Canada, I would likely pay more in shipping to return these than I would get reimbursed. Maybe I'll repaint them, or just cover the bad paint job by saying "they're street dice, faded like an acid washed painted line in a parking lot."
Either way, I can't recommend them. Unless I got a really lousy batch, don't expect it to look like the photo.
If you want a nice cube, I recommend the Gemini sets, they're significantly better quality for the $4 US difference; I personally got the gemini starlight set and they're gorgeous! Otherwise if you need a ton of dice, and don't care too much about quality, they're a good value and much nicer than your typical mono-color 12mm "casino colors" dice.
