An Epic chess battle between Pirates, and their sworn enemies, the British
About this creation
Since I am new to the pages, I would like to say a little about myself, as far as mocs. I build Pirates and Castle, not to mention chess sets. i will never post a custom clone or any star wars moc.
I may post my second chess set.
If anyone cares, my sig fig is a monkey.
on to the chess set



An overall shot of the chess set, showing the case and the two sides.


The King and queen of the Pirate side prepare to command their troops in battle of epic proportions.


the King and Queen of the British side, are confident of victory against this "disorganized rabble of pirate scum"


Undead crewmen serve as Bishops for the Pirates side.



Undead soldiers serve as bishops for the British side.



Parrots serve as Knights for the 2 sides, grey for Pirates, and red for British




Barrels with flags serve as the Rooks, blue for pirates, and red for british.




The Epic Battle begins as both sides send out their pawns.


The British are prepared to throw their life on the line for Queen and Country.


The Pirates ready themselves for a battle to the death for plentiful riches.


Under the chess board there is a case for storing the pieces.


The British



The Pirates

Very cool, may I suggest some tiles on the chessboard? A stud or two per square is necessary, but mostly SNOT would give it a much cleaner look.

Quoting Timmy Kid Cool. Could be made slightly better though. But I'm still giving it 5 heads. P.S.: I'm not saying that you have to change it.
In what way?

I am honored you think so! Lack of pieces is always a pain, I will have to go read what Phip said in advice. Still, the undead as bishops.HAHAHAHA. Never to late to enter the contest, come on over!

Quoting Mister Bones First off, welcome to the pages, second, great chess set. Love the use of undead as bishops, that kills me! A bit of advice, if you do not mind, if you have the 1x2 SNOT pieces (http://shop.lego.com/PAB/) that have one hole in the middle of them, you could actually SNOT the entire board and use those pieces to give the figs somewhere to stand, this would give the set a sleeker look. Not sure if that made sense. On the sides where you have the holes, you could replace those with pieces that do not have holes, or you could add some trans 1x1 studs to resemble gems, they are a bunch of pirates after all. That being said, this is a great chess set and I look forward to more creations from you!
i am truly humbled by the fact that you and phipson rated, (phipson commented in mocpages advice). i might try that, but i do have a shortage of red SNOT pieces..... as i explained in MOCpages advice, the technic bricks were intentional. however, since 2 of who i consider to be some of the best builders around advised me to do so, i will change it, and if i like it better, id keep it. Also is it to late to enter the Halloween contest you have?
