Ah - thank you! And yes, he did :) I may just take a sharpie to the numbers and call it quits after that -- haven't done hobbyist painting since building model tanks in the '70s! But would love to find out more, so will definitely dig around on the wargames forums & at local hobby shops. Great tip to perhaps even find someone else who could do it; I think I may know someone!
We LOVE the die, btw -- our (adult) DM's jaw dropped when he saw it, and my newly-minted 8yo is pleased as punch!
