    So a few years ago I made a Human vs. Undead chess set (using all Reaper figs, of course). Unfortunately, I did the humans in solid white and undead in solid black (and so many layers of paint and sealer that they looked horrible). I also no longer have them. I'm thinking of doing them again, this time in full color. The humans will be white with blue trim, the undead will be black with lavender trim (anyone remember the 'chess' cover paintings from Dragon magazine issues 83, 86, 89, 118? Look them up, they're gorgeous and will be my inspiration).


    Anyway, I love lists, so here are the figures I used and will use again:


    Human set:




    02082: King Angus Stormhand (I know, more Conan than medeival, but c'mon)




    02083: Queen Shanon Stormhand (again, more Amazon than medeival, but c'mon)




    02087: Brother Louis IV


    Knights (a mash up)

    This knight (with lance bent lower):


    14231: Templar Heavy Cavalry, Crusaders Adept


    On this steed (rearing on hind legs to fit on plinth):


    14230: Sir Daman,Crusaders Hero




    02815: Pillar of Good




    06036: Templar Knights


    I've thought about changing it to an Anhurian set this time, but the only ones that would really change would be the pawns and knights, and I don't think the knights would fit anyway.


    Undead set:




    30010: Dragoth the Defiler, Undead Lord on Throne (I thought about the vampire male/female on thrones, but wanted pure skeletal undead, see the rest of the figs)




    02068: Lucrella Lich Queen (same reasoning as above. Maybe I'll do a vampire set some day)




    02310: St Tarkus, Dire-dead (ok, not skeletal, but if he ain't an Evil Bishop...)




    14171: Gadrun, Necropolis Sergeant (back to the bones, and the rearing horse fits on the plinth)




    02814: Pillar of Evil




    06133: Skeletal Warrior (9), Necropolis Grunt

    I'm liking this a lot!

    For a Rook use an Archer figure that matches the faction chosen for the rest of the pieces. Build a platform (or use the one Xherman suggested) for the Archer to stand in. The more it looks like a Belfrey (siege tower) the better. 

    Not a bad idea.

    There are many possibilities.

    Which races do you like?


    You could pit Undead against Crusaders or Goblins against Elves for example.

    There are mounted minis that can be used as horses. Clerics/ wizards could be the bishops.

    Etc etc..

    For the time being, let's settle for Human vs Human.


    (Good vs Evil or both sides neutral in alignment.)


    Question: Any recommendations for Rooks?

    ok, well 

    here's the best matches I can find

    http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/armor/latest/03260 magna timur could be converted to be a decent reinhardt would need a hammer and jet engines, also maybe trade out the shield

    http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/armor/latest/50165 a little big, for torbjorn, but if you want to go crazy get the bones version and shorten his shins and thighs

    Ana, no good match in reaper (but she is almost exactly an infinity hasassin lasiq

    http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/raven/sku-down/60203 reaper's raven skin is a good match for this just trade knives for guns

    http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Savage Worlds/sku-down/91003 you may want to get him a metal arm,but this guy will make an ok mcCree

    http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Chronoscope/sku-down/50331 lucio has the robo legs, but you may need to do some real mods

    http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/robot/sku-down/50164 the bigger guy here could make an ok bastion with a little bit of cutting



    that's all I've got




    Not bad. 


    Thank you.

  5. There's no doubt that most of the success of Overwatch is due to the colorful superheroic (and occasionally supervillainous) characters.


    I've had this idea of making an Overwatch style team using Reaper Miniatures.


    While I already have some idea for the choices (which I might share with you), I was wondering if any of you have any thoughts on the subject.
