    Fantasy Chess Sets Project

    I am sure that I am not alone with a growing number of large armies that I enjoy collecting, but really never intend playing. My two main armies are Brets and Chaos, but how can I resist a shiny new army? I thought it would be a great project to make individual army chess sets to get a few models of armies. My first complete set is the Undead/VC. I think this opens up a whole new outlet for growth!

    Next up is a Bretonnian army. It is a lot of fun scouring for just the right model for each piece and then some modifications to make them work. i will keep posting the completed armies as I go if there is any interest in seeing them.

    Great idea! I have a Lego chess set myself, the idea having been stolen from someone online. I might steal this idea too! That would bring me up to 4 sets altogether - my Russian set from my dad, my Lego set, my crappy travel set, and now my Warhammer set. I'm thinking Empire vs. Warriors though myself.

    Thats actually an awesome idea, i think you've done a good job selecting and painting the right models too.

    A really cool idea, and very well executed - can't wait to see the other side of the board!

    Just out of interest, how are you differentiating between white and black? Or is it just the traditional Vampires = Black and Bretonnian = White?

    Yup - I'm sure the VC will be the black and the Brets will be the white. I have just completed the painting of the four mounts (knights, King & Queen) and finished the Rooks (Towers), so when I get the army finished I will post some pics. Converting the skeleton horses to be rearing up was pretty easy, but the Bret ponies were a bit of a pain - but, they came out pretty good. I am already looking for my next army - it is nice not to have to spend so much money and it certainly takes up a lot less display space.

    Bretonnia seems to suit the theme really well. The king and queen look pretty epic, I especially like the freehand work on the queen - simple, but looks great!

    Just something I noticed - the male Bishop could probably do with a bit of orange washed in the recesses of the flames of his torch, if you were looking to make any improvements.
