Q-Workshop announced a new variety of dragon dice coming soon.  The teaser image showed a metallic gold dragon symbol on a black die with some green coloration.  The new design is still currently being produced, but this is a great time to look at the dragon line from Q-Workshop, which according to a Q-Workshop representative, is “one of the most popular sets we’ve ever had.  At the same time it’s one of our oldest models.”1

The image gracing the box of Q-Workshop’s dragon line is by Anne Stoke’s and is “probably one of the most famous dragon images”1

Collectors might also want to track down some of the singles that slipped into loose bins and Q-Workshop bulk jars.  These include a reddish-pink color with blue, of which a Q-Workshop representative said “Nope, we never had full sets like that. You may only be able to find [them] in jars.”  Others, according to Q-Workshop, might be production errors2.

 

 

 

In addition to the current sets, previously produced full sets, production errors, and samples, there are also Q-Workshop brand dragon dice with a slightly different logo dating back to 2004 according to Kevin Cook’s renowned dice database.  Some of the singles and loose dice can be found there:  http://www.dicecollector.com/THE_DICE_THEME_Q_WORKSHOP_DRAGON.html

Q-Workshop’s dragon line are a favorite for a reason.  The engraved delicacy of the artwork connect with the fantasy backdrop of many RPGs with a quality that dice lovers and game players have come to expect from the brand.  Though we weren’t lucky enough to get more of a sneak peak of the upcoming dragon line, we can’t wait to see more images!  Stay tuned to Q-Workshop’s social media for further updates and images of the new dragon line:  https://www.instagram.com/alldicetellastory & https://www.facebook.com/QWdice
