"Bone colored" ey?  Someone knows how to market to this audience.  But really, we would have prefered actual bone dice :'D naturally, no questions would be asked on provenance.

@el igore Actually if you read my whole post I do mention the regular Q-Workshop CoC d6's.  I have a set of the glow-in-the-dark polyhedrals myself.  I love watching the elder sign pop up on my d20 when my Star-Pact warlock crits in 4E!

These look good but would have preferred blessed & cursed (have ordered blessed & cursed dice sets via post on Boardgame Geek AH page, as no official ones available)

@tesseracht: You can also use the Call of Cthulhu dice from Q-Workshop for "cursed" rolls. They have elder signs on the sixes only.

 Will these be available through "normal" retail channels? Or only via the FFG-store (as the miniatures)?

Nice. I enjoy using the black set, but these certainly seem to be much easier to read.

I think that if they are going to release different colored dice sets for use with Arkham Horror, they should have a set of "Blessed" dice where the 4,5,and 6 are elder signs as well as a "cursed" set with only the 6's as elder signs.  Actually I have a set of Q-Workshops glow-in-the-dark polyhedrals and the d6's in that set only have one elder sign in place of the 6, maybe I should just get more of those.

Nice, I think those will be easier to read than the dark green ones.
