UPDATE: I made another Doctor Who chess set! It is currently for sale. Just follow this [link]
I'm quite pleased with my chess set. The pieces are all made from scratch! 32 pieces is quite a lot, I tell you... I like some pieces more than others, but I guess that's unavoidable. I wish you could all see this in real life though, it's much better than the photos. For instance, the Doctor's hair came out wonderfully, but can hardly be seen here.
Size: the board is 31x31 cm (exactly 1 foot square). The tallest pieces are the kings, they are almost 7 cm tall (2.75 inch). The Daleks are the smallest, they are about 3 cm high (1.2 inch). All pieces are made out of polymer clay.
So we have the 'good' and the 'evil' side.
King: The Master
Queen: Lady Cassandra
Knights: Judoon & Sontaran
Rooks: Weeping Angels
King: The Doctor (Ten)
Queen: Professor River Song
Knights: Captain Jack Harkness & The Face of Boe
Pawns: Baby Adipose
Btw, I know I didn't place the pieces right. I have to admit I don't enjoy chess myself, although I loved it as a kid. I just love the idea of creating all the pieces now So I'm afraid I wasn't paying much attention when taking these photos. Sorry!
What do you guys think?
- All characters are (c) BBC
- UPDATE: the set has been SOLD! To one very lucky American
P.S. I wish I hadn't forgotten to put my camera on a higher resolution setting! This is the full size unfortunately. ;(
I'm working on a board (judging by my biggest/widest piece, it'll be about 2'4" square) that will be comprised of six smaller boards which magnetically lock together in order to condense space.
It's got a "good" and "evil" side as well, only it's a variety of different fiction... but one of the rooks is the Tardis with the 10th Doctor peeking out, and one of the evil rooks will be a Dalek.
I really REALLY love your selection, especially the evil side. Lady Cassandra is perfect too.
Again, terrific work.
OMG I MUST HAVE ONE OF THESE.
