Welcome to today’s review in which we are looking at some handmade dice bags available from Greyed Out Productions, a small business based in the US, who sell a range of dice bags aimed at gamers. Michael at Greyed Out Productions kindly sent us 2 of their handmade dice bags for use with our games and we decided to review them as they’re very nicely made and we think they’ll be of great interest Warhammer 40k fans.
Here you can see the first of the 2 bags that we were sent, the ‘Imperial Eagle Dice Bag’ which is normally priced at $18.50 (around £11.75). Our dice bag came in a red fabric, printed with a white Imperial Eagle, and a lining of natural, unbleached 100% cotton, but it is available in a variety of colours on request. Our initial thoughts were that these feel really nicely made and would make a great gift for a gamer.
This is quite a large dice bag with a 5″ square bottom and standing about 5″ tall when open. It’s designed to be freestanding on your table so that you can easily grab handfuls of dice as needed. *…looks at Ork players* We’ve got just over 100 standard D6’s (from Games Workshop) in this bag and as you can see there is plenty of room for more if needed.
These bags also come with a drawstring system so that you can easily store or carry around your dice as needed. Until now we’d just kept our dice in whichever random tin or box we could find that would fit them in, but now we’ve tried these great quality dice bags, we’ll definitely be sticking with them, and they will look much better on our gaming tables.
The second dice bag Michael sent over is the ‘Chaos Star Dice Bag’ which is normally priced at $17 (around £11) and is great for those players who have fallen to the ruinous powers of Chaos. It’s sewn from black cotton canvas, features an 8-pointed star of Chaos screen printed on it, and is lined in black fabric.
The ‘Chaos Star Dice Bag’ measures 6″ x 7″ and will easily hold over 100 dice.
We don’t think these bags need to be limited to holding dice though, they are a great way to store lots of wargaming accessories such as these Mission and Structural Integrity Counters (see our review here) that we use when playing Warhammer 40k.
Again, the double drawstring system means that your dice will be safe for storage or while you travel to a game.
Here you can see both of the bags we were sent along with some standard D6 (from Games Workshop) for scale.
We really like these and think the designs will appeal to many wargamers. Both of the dice bags we received are great quality and we’re sure they’ll be looking on our tables for a very long time. We didn’t actually own any dice bags up until now, let us know in the comments below if you’re a fan of using dice bags, and what you think of these designs from Greyed Out Productions.
