Anyway, I have had many kind comments about good looking game(s) I put on last weekend. I did notice, to my eye anyway, the glaring red of the dice we use for combat adjudication on the tabletop. We use special d6s with three sides having '0's. Never gave much thought to them but the red quite shows in photos. So.....
|The old red dice along with the new blacks|
I decided that I must work on that. Therefore I went to the local hobby store, bought a box of Chessex brand black d6 and proceeded to fill in the 4, 5 and 6 sides with black paint and then some gloss for durability. Black was chosen to match with the thick black sides of our bases and markers.

From the usual wargamer vantage point however I think they look OK and show well enough if the player will gain any advantage from the dice.
