The NAF block dice came with a NAF membership. Every year they came with a (at first top secret) new color until 2012. Quite a lot of coachs are collecting now those NAF dice. Because some of the older dice are quite expensive to buy now, it was worth to pay for a NAF membership just to get the block dice… 😉
2013 the story of the NAF Block dice ended.
Posted at the NAF website, Thu May 23, 2013:
„… This is always an exciting time of year as the NAF announces new dice. We are keeping this tradition but sadly, after ten years, Games Workshop has brought this great tradition of new block dice to an end.
We tried many angles with GW, but ultimately the licensing department would not renew our deal meaning that, for 2013, a new colour of blocking dice cannot be issued. We have good relations with GW and hope that with continued communication this may change in the future.
This year we will instead be issuing matching coloured sets of 2D6, plus a D8 and a D16. In the great tradition of the NAF, the new colour and unique design will be announced at the NAF Championship 2013 and attendees renewing their membership can get their new dice. …“

NAF D6 2016 misprint
NAF D6 2016 misprint The story behind those „misprinted dice“, which are nether misprinted at all …
Here the info from Torsten aka Tojurub, who was NAF Vice President at that time:
„Wasn’t a missprint on them, but the first yellow ones we got had just printed the dots instead of depressions. The pink were given as compensation from the manufacturer. And the pink ones weren’t enough to admit. So they only went to NAF staff.“
Thx for the pict and the info , Michael aka Twyllenimor! 🙂
