40K - Assault Dice App

For those of you looking to speed up your play, I can recommend the GW "Assault Dice" App.


This is an iPhone/Android dice rolling app. It is powered by a Vegas-approved physics engine that allows you to roll up to 120 dice at one time.

The app lets you do re-rolls of certain results (e.g. 1s; Misses etc). You can also set up specific tables for certain units. For example I have my Sonic Blaster table where I roll 24 dice for 8 Sonic Blasters.

For those of you using Horde armies or weapons with extreme Rates of Fire this app is a godsend.

The one thing that you have to do is read the "Tutorial". It shows you how to do re-rolls without it affecting existing dice. Done properly existing dice are unaffected.

I am going to allow the app to be used at the FOB NZGT as I think it allows Horde players to speed up their play. Personally I would only use it when I needed to roll more than 30 dice and would have those units set up as a separate table.

And the best thing? It's less than the cost of a cup of coffee.

  1. Very interesting idea and definitely needed with the length of 40k games at the moment. I do love physically rolling dice at home but at an event I would certainly be interested in anything that assisted play like this.

    1. Try playing Hagen's 96 dice....re-roll to hit, re-roll to wound. The "make-a-cup-of-coffee" phase

  2. I've heard a lot of good things about the app lately. Including (admittedly like 4th hand) talk of some statistical analysis that found it comparable in terms of randomness to the RNG used by casinos, which should be more than good enough for 40K. Need to get around to giving it a go myself, since speed can be an issue for me in game.

  3. An issue I came across was with rerolls, when you reroll dice out of the cup they can hit other dice and change the results. So dice that were hits can become misses. If this could be changed so that rerolls don’t effect other dice it would help.
