Here’s a video of my Mordheim Dice Tower (WIP) in Action. You won’t be able to see the dice once I put the roof on, so here you go:

Enjoy,

    The one thing I don’t see is whether or not this will be a playable piece. You said you need to have terrain that doubles as a dice tower.

    Is this going to be actually playable? Obviously not on the inside, but are you going to have a place where pieces can be used on the outside of the building?

    Terrain’s not very useful if the units can’t utilize it.

    It’s very true. Unfortunately it’s very difficult for a dice tower to actually be playable, so it’ll be more of a LOS (Line of Sight) Blocker than anything.

    I do plan on adding some random bits and terrain, but not too much.

    That is pretty cool Ashton. We play on a terrain board that has ditches carved in beside the cobblestone roads, and the dice are always getting trapped cocked in them. It’s actually kind of funny when a player rolls three or four times in a row and ends up cocked every time ;-).

    We’re starting a campaign game soon – three players. I’ll try to post about it as we go along. I might take a stab at a dice roller myself!

    What plugin are you using for the videos? I’m on wordpress too (http://www.wargameweaver.com/mordheim), but I haven’t tried video yet.

    Hi Jim,

    Thank you. I don’t have a board with a lot of hills (yet), but I think this dice tower still come in very handy, esp since even if you don’t use it, it’ll be a cool piece of terrain. 😉

    For video, I just uploaded my video to Youtube, and then copied the code straight into the Code View of the post. (Note: You’ll have to get the code again every time you edit the post.)

    Thanks again Jim,
    -Ashton Sanders
