Just got my die. I went with the matte bronze-steel. Going by the cgi preview, I was a little worried after I placed my order that they would look too dark or plasticy.
My fears couldn't be further from the truth! They look as magical and as earthy looking as I had hoped they would. The finish is very subdued, but the little granularities and dull luster add up to a very impressive finished product.
They're balanced and weighty in the hand, the second you pick one up and handle it you know it's a very special item. The size is big enough to make an impression, but not get in the way or be too flashy.
Comment about the picture: They do look worse in the picture. The green mat really through off the white balance, and it simply doesn't pick up the nuance that makes these beautiful.
