Chess Set Figs

Recommended Posts

That's a nice set!  Is this project completed now?  I ask because if you wanted some interesting rook pieces instead of the castles then these might be an idea:

There's nothing wrong with those rooks, I just know the back catalog is deep so it's easy to miss some interesting things in it that you (or the person you made the set for) might find neat.

im pretty sure painting a chess set is in the back of every painters head.

nice work. 

 

 About six years before the first LotR movie came out I had begun putting together a list of figures for a themed chess set... Never did find the time to get  anywhere with it, unfortunately.

 

The Good side looks great, but I'm really digging the Bad Guys. ::D:

      Hello there!
      Now it's no secret that I'm a fan of Games Workshop minis, there's two problems with this though, I can't paint armies (I've tried, I lose interest after the first few minis) so I miss out on the interesting units, and just buying heroes gets rather expensive!
       
      Then I discovered their Underworlds game, getting little bite-sized versions of the various factions (often with fancy bases!), and now I'm obsessed.
       
      This year I want to try and put a dent in this particular pile of plastic (or, at least cancel out the new ones I'm getting), and thought a project thread might help.
      I've made a spreadsheet, ran a number generator and picked the first ten candidates.
       
       
       
      Laserian - An evil Knight and Balmonoth - Insidous Rat-man.
       

       
      The Champion - Wandering Undead Warrior (He's not actually an Underworlds mini, he's one of only two Games Workshop resin minis I brought that were cast well enough to keep, but he fits in the skeleton faction.) and One-Eyed Thabron - Orc Mercenary.
       

       
      Awil-sin - Fey Elf and Jafari - Cultist.
       

       
      Yrkill - Sky Dwarf Adventurer and Fahime - Evil Elven Assassin.
       

       
      Padean - Barbarian of the Western Plains and Elodie of the Blade - Elven Peacekeeper.
       
      Started working on Elodie:-
       

       
      Being an Elf I used Elf Fleshtone > Flesh Wash > Elf Fleshtone > Elf Fleshtone/Light Flesh, added a drop of Scarlett Red to the highlight mix for her lips, and gave her a pretty decent (IMO) pair of eyes.
      Next is her wacky hair.

      Dwarves vs Dragons
      A 3d printable chess set featuring dwarves and dragons.
      by 
      Neil Billings
       
      The classic match up of dwarves vs dragons is now available to 3d print as your own thematic chess set. Will the dwarves be able to reclaim their dwarven halls or will the dragon's reign of terror continue? The matter can only be settled on the chess board!

      Looks like Miniac will be doing something to promote this, which I think will likely take it to funded.

      I think the frogfolk are particularly fun, but they have a bunch of other stuff. Worth checking out, there's an early bird special for the STL files or the physical resin prints. Because they're doing it all in house, appears to have a pretty quick turnaround too.

      Story
        Owlbear cubs The Baby Bestiary 7th Annual Calendar
      Each year, since the inception of the Baby Bestiary, we've put together an annual calendar featuring a new talented artist to illustrate to bring to life our adorable calendar.
      With a different artist, we can explore the adorable through their eyes, see them experiment with new styles and interpretations of what the Baby Bestiary means to them. With every passing year, we’ve had amazing pieces that have resonated with our community.
      Artist Feature: Kelsey
      Hi everyone! My name is Kelsey, also known around the internet as Keymonster or just Key. I am a full-time, freelance artist and illustrator working out of the Pacific Northwest. My creative passions center around animals, plants and the fantastical worlds they exist in. I love creating plant/animal hybrids and integrating botanical motifs and imagery into the worlds that I build as well as creating adorable little creatures of all shapes and sizes getting into a bunch of mischief.
