1 5/8" (16mm) custom precision die
In 2015, Battleschool debuted a new series in their line of customized precision dice for ASL. This series, the Stalingrad series, features four different offerings with six dice in total, each linked to a unit that fought in the pivotal battle (three German, three Soviet). All the dice in the series are 1/2″ (16mm) ball-cornered custom precision dice.
This particular offering, one of the Soviet dice in the series, is a red die with white pips. Instead of a typical 1-facing, the die instead has a gold foil image of Lenin (yes, that Lenin) and Cyrillic wording around the image that seems to say 62nd “Order of Lenin” Army.
In addition, the 2- and 3-facings have ROF indicators on them in gold foil to help players remember ROF.
Overall, it is an attractive die. The other two Soviet dice in the series are both white, so the Soviet subset has a somewhat awkward combination of one colored and two white dice, rather than dice of three different colors, which is more practical in ASL terms.
