    Nice pieces in there own right... but those horses need riders ;)

    (just a thought: put the rooks/castles on the horses as true knights and have a Castellan, perhaps symbolically holding the keys to the castle instead?)

    Don't know how well the paintwork would stand up to actual play (get the white cotton gloves out?).

    ... and I daren't ask the price :eek:

    And if you do have to ask the price, it means you can't afford it. :nailbiting:

    Judging by the standard of paintwork, which is very good, but not outstanding, we are probably looking at a 6-7k figure.

    Hi Guys

    Interesting set to produce , painted well and obviously not cheap !!! .....but obviously a one off purchase

    Must comment on the actual surround on the chess board ..looks great wonder if it's hand painted

    Yes, the chess board is hand painted.
    It was a long project (it took little less than 1 year to complete). A lot of small troubles happened on all the stages and the process was quite slow.
    I am happy it's done at last)

    Fabulous work and probably more intended as a display piece rather than an actual play unit as I can't imagine the paint holding up pristine if used regularly with sweat or skin oils etc on the fingers. As I said, it would be magnificent however as an artistic display piece.
