Episode V Chess
A playable Star Wars chess set from Episode V.
About this creation


The Empire. I realize that Snowtroopers would have been a better choice for pawns, but the cost was a big issue. Maybe in the future.











The Rebels.










Yoda sitting on a custom Throne.










My custom AT-AT.



















I customized the Rebel Soldiers a bit by giving them white arms, which better matches the movie. The rifle is also custom.







There are a lot of Star Wars chess sets out there, but I was having trouble remembering which characters were which pieces. So I designed mine to be playable and the pieces more easily recognizable, instead of going for putting in as many characters as I could. I reviewed every SW chess set for inspiration, then decided on The Empire Strikes Back. It has always been my favorite movie. The snowspeeder can be viewed in my "Mini snowspeeder" MOC. I also realized after taking these pictures that I have the board set up wrong. Yoda and the Emperor are supposed to be the kings, Luke and Vader the Queens (hope that doesn't give them a complex).

Very impressive. I'm not a fan of fleshie faces, so the use of classic yellow smiles is great.

Extremely cool. I think I you should upgrade with fleshy hands and faces and since the anniversary ESB sets have come out, you can get those snowtroopers pretty cheap. All in all, this a great MOC.

Why don't you make another one? Make a base this time, with details. It'll look much better. Anyway, the micro models are the best part.

What a fabulous application of the SW theme. And well done all around. Hey, given Vader's treatment of some of the hapless officers, I have no trouble thinking of them as pawns.

Awesome! I love how this is original! Snowtroopers would be better pawns, but I wouldn't want to spend a lot of money either. The AT-AT is pretty good, the legs could be a bit better. I really liked the snowspeeders though, those are great. Yoda's throne gave the "Dagobah" feeling, and the Cloud City Guard showed that you didn't leave out any settings in the movie. Great job here!

I´m not a big chess fan, but this set makes me want to play it right now! The imperial team is great, especially the AT-ATs, ok storm trooper are maybe better as pawns, but that doesn´t matter at all. The rebel team is also cool, and it´s a good idea to use the AT-AT and snowspeeder on the same position, but I don´t like yoda in there. He´s not a rebel, he´s from the republic, though I wouldn´t know one for this position. Overall very awesome, great teams, cool Snot ground. I really would like to play chess with this,great job!

I thought for sure that I commented on this, but guess not. Anyway, this is a great idea and all the pieces are very well-made. I especially like the AT-ATs and Snowspeeders. You should make a set from each OT episode.

This is awesome! (And that is a lot of tiles!) Well done choosing 5x5 for the squares, that's the first time I've seen that. Great choice of characters too, but how do think Yoda and 'Sidious feel about being queen?

Brilliant job. The only thing that could have made it better would have been snowtroopers in lieu of the imperial officers; however, given that they are >$15ea, that could get a bit pricey. Your AT-ATs are very well done and are my favourite pieces. Lee.

This is fun to look at. You could've used stormtroopers as pawns, but they're more expensive. The ATATs could use some work on the legs. Otherwise great selection of pieces!
