    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:

     

    King

    02082_G.jpg

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

     

    Queen

    02083_G.jpg

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

     

    Bishops

    02087_w_1.jpg

    02087: Brother Louis IV

     

    Knights (a mash up)

    This knight (with lance bent lower):

    14231_G.jpg

    14231: Templar Heavy Cavalry, Crusaders Adept

     

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

    14230_G.jpg

    14230: Sir Daman,Crusaders Hero

     

    Rooks

    02815_G.jpg

    02815: Pillar of Good

     

    Pawns

    06036_G.jpg

    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:

     

    King

    30010_w_1.jpg

    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)

     

    Queen

    02068_G.jpg

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

     

    Bishops

    02310_w_1.jpg

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

     

    Knights

    14171_G.jpg

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

     

    Rooks

    02814_G.jpg

    02814: Pillar of Evil

     

    Pawns

    06133_G.jpg

    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.
