This is the regular gaming
version of the D20 in my 'Radial' design family of dice.
The numbers on this die are arranged so that the sum of the numbers on two opposing sides is always 21. Great care has been taken to ensure that the die is fair and well balanced, and therefore throws should not be biased.
The die is about 30 mm (1.18") high and weighs about 12 grams when printed in steel. This size will print fine in plastic, but is better suited for metal. There is also a large version
available which will work better in plastic.
A version of this d20 with the numbers arranged in a spindown pattern, so that it can be more easily used as a life counter in games such as MTG, is can be found here
For other dice in this design family, please have a look at the 'Radial' category
in my shop.
(Please note that the photographs at the top of this description are of the spindown version of this d20. The gaming version will have the same look and feel, only the nubers will be arranged differently. You can see the arrangement you will receive in the renders.)
To enhance the look of the die, and to make the numbers on the die stand out more, you can do the following:
- On the metal version you can darken the recessed ares by painting the die with thinned dark acrylic paint and rubbing it on a rough cloth after the paint has dried. This will clean the paint of the heightened details, leaving them shiny and contrasting nicely with the darker lower areas.
- On the plastic version you can color the numbers using acrylic paint and a fine brush. Because the numbers are raised above their background plane this is quite easy to do.
