Country of Origin:
2 5/8" (16mm) custom precision dice
In 2016, Battleschool announced a new series of 5/8″ (16mm) custom precision dice, a series that focused on the Waffen SS. There would be eight dice in all, sold in packs of two (or also available individually). Seven dice would each feature the divisional insignia of a Waffen SS unit, while an eighth die would be white and apparently feature SS lightning bolts.
This was a lamentable decision as all of these symbols are common hate symbols used by white supremacists in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere. Because these dice are optional accessories, there are not even faux “historical” rationalizations that can be employed to defend the sale, purchase or use of such dice.
This particular offering in the series features a die for the 5th SS “Wiking” Panzer Division and a die for the 12th SS “Hitlerjugend” Panzer Division. The Wiking Division insignia, a curved swastika, is particularly offensive.
Desperation Morale does not condone these dice and will not display them on its website.
Dan Schulz says
I’ll bet you these are Battleschool’s best sellers, extremely popular among the non-gaming white supremacist crowd. Tasteless and offensive.
Doug Craig says
Will you be selling any accessories with the Hammer & Sickle? The atrocities and genocides perpetrated by the Soviet Union and other communist regimes around the planet are highly offensive and sickening to large portions of people whose families had to live under such evil.
