Mean Green Maladroit Machine!

I finished painting my "Maladroit Machine" tank last night and I am quite pleased with the results. I added a different shade of green and I really like the way it looks with the troops.

I don't know if I have posted this before but the turret is magnetized and swivels 360". The hatch that opens up the tank where the cards and dice are stored, is also magnetized for easy access.

I didn't take a picture of the other side of the tank, but it has a "U.S.A." symbol instead of the American flag on the escape hatch.

Prototype to Custom Dice

In this article, I wan to show you the difference between the original prototype dice that consisted of a Lego dice with sticker images, and the new custom dice I just received from Gamestation.Net.

For the prototype, I took a Lego dice (that is only sold with Lego board games) with its many fun and colorful interchangeable face plates; and added cut-out images made from a shipping label. This dice was fun to use and I'm sure will come in handy when making another game, but I wanted a more professional looking dice to be sent with the board game when I enter it for submission @ KublaCon 2011.
I drew the images (posted a while back) and had my friend Gil edit, crop and add borders. I am also glad Jason Witten over @ Gamestaion.Net ( recommended the 25mm d6 because the images look amazing on this giant dice!
Here are more pics of the prototype and custom dice side by side:

First and foremost, "HAPPY NEW YEAR" to everybody that reads our little blog :-D
We could sure use new recruits (followers); so if you have any comments or ideas regarding the construction of our games, we would sure like to hear them. Your support motivates us here at Go Games Lab to do our best and finish our games.

I would like to show you an x-mas gift that arrived today in the mail from my girlfriend Stacey. This is a custom 25mm d6 that was made from Gamestation.Net /

These jumbo dice are a nice addition to my game, and look much nicer than the Lego dice I have been using with stickers on the side :-P

I would like to recommend Gamestation.Net to any gamer that is looking for a small order on custom dice with quality results. I am always pleased and excited to use the dice they make for me :-D

The only two good rolls :-)

Two bad rolls :-(

Two even worse rolls :-(

A plug for the people @ Gamestation.Net
