    Several years ago I bought my son some Star Wars figures which came with the Galactic Battle cards and dice.

    As he was so young he never had any interest in the cards or dice but I thought at the time they would make a great set of Han Solo's gold dice, well I finally had a go at making a set myself.

    It was really easy to do and although they're not exact, I was pleased with how they turned out and they now hang from my cars rear view mirror.

    Dice before.

    Sanded all over then I sanded down one corner of each of the dice.

    I then drilled a small hole in the sanded corner for the the screws.

    Next step was to paint the dice gold, insert the screws and add the gold chain, job done.

    Nice. Although from the pictures I also actually kind of liked them at the sanded all over stage! Made them look aged and ancient.

    Thanks, yes I agree they did look good when sanded. Might make myself another set but leave them black this time.
