Radioactive Dice Deserve A Radioactive Dice Cup

Just got my set of Nuke Dice from Q-Workshop, but I didn't want to just toss them in the ol' dice bag. I felt they needed something more Mutant Future-ish with regards to storage. Pity there are no small "Radioactive Waste" containers to use.

So I made one.

I picked up a simple cardboard can with lid at the local hobby store, painted it yellow, wrapped a rusting barrel texture printout around it (stenciled with RADIOACTIVE WASTE, a hazmat placard, and two radiation/poison decals on the far side), and finished it with a black/yellow hazard strip around the lid edge. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out.

  1. Nice!! I'd be worried that the cardboard wouldn't be strong enough for transport. Something to consider, should you ever do radioactive dice cup v2.0 would be to use a PVC pipe.

  2. Actually the cardboard cup/lid is incredibly sturdy. The whole assembly was wrapped in a paper-mache-like substance that firmed it up to an almost plastic-like firmness.
