Released at GenCon 2008...

SFR, Inc. announces the reprint release of the Dragonslayer die. These new Dragonslayers are made with white marbleized plastic printed with gold ink. They also feature the SFR logo, as seen in the picture below.



Dragonslayers add powerful melee capabilities to your army. Each has Smite, Sneak Attack, Counter, and Save faces. along with the SFR logo which allows you to attempt to kill a dragon of any color before it can affect your army. They are the pinnacle of the Hunter set, and one of the most powerful dice in the Eldarim race.

The Slayers will be available on the SFR retail purchase page starting on Monday, August 18th. They can be purchased for $4 each individually, or as part of the new complete 6-dice Dragonhunters/Dragonslayer set for $15.

Trust me on this one Brad, they are all the same. I've checked all of them. So there is only variation of the SFR Dragonslayer.

As someone who tries to get all the variants, this can only be a good thing - of course, it means I wont be buying as many... Very Happy

Only the pure gold Krugerrands.

Hmm... About 2 per Dragonslayer would be about right.

Speaking of variations, I'm going to post this publicly right here so everyone knows about it.

We did make a variation. The production version is the gold ink that you see in the first post on this thread. There is a promo version with black ink. Those will never be for sale from SFR. I just want to be clear about this. I mean never.

Those were made for the sole purpose of being given to people that demo at stores, GenCon, or otherwise help us out. None of us get paid for this, so we had to come up with something else. Right now the only people that have this promo version are people that helped us out at GenCon and DexCon. If you want to get one, either help us out at a convention, or go the rep forum and see what you need to do.

The Ink I feel is more of a Bronze/Copper on the new Slayer.
It looks absolutely fabulous.!!! Razz

The Pearlized is beautiful as well.
It looks like a moon glow reflection.

Currently both Dragonlords and Dragonslayers are only available in sets. That may change, but it's the current status. We will announce when that changes.

The Dragonhunter/Dragonslayer sets have always had the Dragonslayers with copper ink. Note: copper, not gold. We never made the Dragonslayers with gold ink.

There are of course, the original TSR Dragonslayers around (SFR never had any) with the black ink. There are SFR Dragonslayers with black ink, those are special promo dice that you only get for being an active rep. Talk to our rep director for details. http://sfr-inc.com/bb/viewtopic.php?t=2308

OK, the copper ink is what I am thinking. You threw me off when you said the sets always came with the copper ink. I guess that is true because.... maybe SFR didnt do Dragonhunter/slayer sets before the copper version came out? I remember sets being available long before this new copper one came out, but that might just have been dragonlord/master sets.

The Dragonlord with copper ink came out a year before the Dragonslayers were made. Before the Dragonslayers were made with the SFR logo, we had a set of Dragonhunters (and only Dragonhunters). So I'm sure that's what you are thinking of.
