2 x 5/8" (16mm) custom precision dice.
82nd Airborne/101st Airborne is a set of dice in Battleschool’s “Operation Market-Garden” series of ASL-themed custom precision dice. Dice in this series represent Axis and Allied units that fought in the Market-Garden operation.
This entry in the series contains two 5/8″ (16mm) ball-cornered custom precision dice. The 82nd Airborne die is dark blue with white pips. Instead of a 1-facing, the die has a red-foil version of the divisional symbol for the 82nd Airborne Division. Its 2- and 3-facings have pips as normal, but also small red-foil ROF symbols, to help players remember rate of fire. The ROF symbols are hard to distinguish against the dark background, but the die is nevertheless attractive.
Similarly, the 101st Airborne die is a black die with white pips and a 1-facing that uses gold foil to display the divisional symbol of the 101st Airborne Division. It, too, has ROF symbols on its 2- and 3-facings, this time in gold foil, which is a bit more visible against the background than is the case for the other die. It too is an attractive die.
