Legion Dice: Imperial Fists Review

Legion Dice Imperial Fists

Roll For The Loyalists

Show your loyalty in the most stunning way with the new Legion Dice: Imperial Fists. Rolling onto the battlefield in a striking yellow, these dice are the perfect companion to a winning game strategy.

This is the first in what will surely be a long line of beautifully crafted dice. Each set is designed around either a loyalist or traitor legion. With Imperial fists being known for the distinctive yellow of their armor, these dice compliment the style perfectly.

Gifts From The Primarch

The contents of the Legion Dice: Imperial Fists come neatly packed in a tight box, with a window at the front to view your spoils through. Inside you’ll find 20 beautifully transparent yellow dice, 19 of which are D6’s, with the one remaining being a scatter dice.

Representing the 6 is the Iron Fist symbol which sits proudly on each dice. The other numbers on the remaining faces are represented by bold pips. It’s hard to describe in words just how nice these dice look in person, so I’ll let this picture do the talking.

A small issue I have is that there are only 19 D6’s, and not 20, due to the scatter dice. Although this is only a small criticism, I use a lot of troops with the ‘Rapid fire’ keyword which doubles the amount of dice used. Because of this, I’m often rolling close to 20 dice per round of attacks, and have to substitute a single dice from another set to make up the numbers.

It’s also worth noting that the box is quite difficult to get into, so I recommend carefully taking a pair of scissors to the packaging. Just be careful not to catch the dice and damage them.

Reading The Bones

Unfortunately, the most important feature for these dice is their slight downfall. The fine markings of the pips against the glowing yellow of the plastic can be really hard to read in the heat of the battle; especially if there’s any extra lighting round the battlefield.

But don’t let that take too much away from them. They roll perfectly across the table, and produce sounds so heavenly, that they strike fear into the heart of any traitor legion. Needless to say, the more time you spend rolling and reading them, the better they get. Not to mention, they look absolutely beautiful on the field.

See Through The Traitors

One of the nicest touches to these dice is their transparency. Paired with the Iron Fist yellow, they are definitely one of the nicest sets of dice Games Workshop have produced. Whether you’re using them as wound counters, or they’re strewn across the battlefield; no opposition or detail will be obscured by them.

However, as previously mentioned, the transparency does pick up light very easily. Which can add to the difficulty when reasoning the result you’ve expertly rolled.

Final Thoughts

Personally, I think these dice are amazing, and have enjoyed every second spent using them. There’s nothing better than rocking up to a game with painted miniatures and pulling out a set of dice that match the faction. It adds to the aesthetics, shows your loyalty, and just looks epic in general.

Although the Legion Dice: Imperial Fists is absolutely stunning, it really is difficult to look past the glaring issue of readability. Additionally, I don’t believe much could be changed to make it any easier to read, aside from certain lighting in the background. That’s not to say that they are unusable, though. As I mentioned earlier, after a few games with this dice, you’ll easily get used to reading them quickly. However, if you’re not a fan of transparent dice, there is a wide selection of solid coloured dice that will suit your loyalist needs.

Other than that, I’ve had a great experience when using them, and found it quite easy to get used to reading the symbols on each dice. They received a lot of compliments from other players, and really stood out on the battlefield.

Nonetheless, this is an incredible set of dice and a must have for any Imperial Fist Loyalist. Be sure to pick up your set while they last, as Games Workshop dice are renowned for having limited print runs.
