I'm interested in doing a chess set using Reaper Miniatures.

 

Recommendations please.

 

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?

Me too.  I guess it randomly depends on what people have rustled up in the past, that and my ability to dig through old threads.

 

I'm pretty sure there's been more discussion than I can scare up, but not necessarily in an easy to find, simple format.

I would look at the golems.  Something like the Bones 3 Graveyard Golem might go rather nicely with the bad guys, while the Bones 3 Iron Golem might work well with the good guys.

 

My other thought would be the elementals.

I mentioned this guy earlier.

Since it is a Bones mini you could easily cut the figure off the castle base, and replace it with any mini you'd like.

It will have a castle stoneworks base then.

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.

The biggest problem with an Elven Chess set is trying to limit selection.  I started trying to do a Frostgrave Warband with Elves... and just locating all of the different ones and then sifting them for different types was mind boggling.  But, in another year, when I get ready to do the chess set for my brother, I have all of the figures in a pre-sorted order that will make them easier to find for what I want.  I just haven't made the choices yet...

      Heya guys! I’m relatively new to the hobby and I’ve only recently discovered Reaper minis. This is my new favorite company, great pieces that even a broke dude like me can afford.
       
      I suffer from partial blindness so extreme details can be a challenge....but it’s just for fun so whatevs. I plan on spending my remaining years of vision painting as many pieces as I can. 
       
      I’ve seen some really incredible work from you guys! Thanks and feel free to hit me up. I’m always down to chat about minis and always open to critique. I’m here to learn.

      Inspired by Doug Sundseth’s red and white legionnaire, I did this mini for a paladin I want to play in an upcoming campaign. This guy offered a lot of fun details, especially the sword and sheath. I used Liquitex basics, with some Agrax Earthshade

      Saw this figure in my LGS a while back, decided to buy it, and now I'm using it as my new DnD character. He was quite intriguing to paint. I really enjoyed this one. I used Citadel paints for it. I also gave it a spray undercoat first, I do with all minis even ones that are already primed, too much of a habit now.
