Doctor Who Chess set #2 by EldalinSkywalker Doctor Who Chess set #2 by EldalinSkywalker
This is my second Doctor Who chess set! This time with Eleven rather than Ten. I hope you like it! For last year's set, follow this…

I am quite pleased with this set, as it is noticeably better than the previous set, and I love seeing my skills grow!

Size: the board is 31x31 cm (exactly 1 foot square). The tallest pieces are the kings, they are about 7 cm tall (2.75 inch). The pawns are the smallest, they are about 2.5 - 3 cm high (1 - 1.2 inch). All pieces are made with polymer clay.

So we have the 'good' and the 'evil' side.

:bulletred: Evil side:
:bulletgreen: King: The Dreamlord
:bulletgreen: Queen: Madam Kovarian
:bulletgreen: Bishops: Silence
:bulletgreen: Knights: Headless monks
:bulletgreen: Rooks: Pandorica's
:bulletgreen: Pawns: Weeping angels

:bulletred: Good side:
:bulletgreen: King: The Doctor (Eleven)
:bulletgreen: Queen: River Song
:bulletgreen: Bishops: Amy & Amelia
:bulletgreen: Knights: Eyedrive Rory & Rory the Roman
:bulletgreen: Rooks: Tardises
:bulletgreen: Pawns: Dorium's heads

p.s. This set was sold for $695.

Hey. I know this has been up for a while so it might already be gone, but if it isn't I would like to purchase it. I don't know much about Doctor Who myself, but judging by the comments left by the fans you've done a great representation here. My father is a big Doctor Who fan and his birthday's coming up this November. He also loves chess, so when I seen this I thought it would be the perfect gift for him. :)  So . . . let me know if it's still for sale? :3 Thank you.

Hello! You're in luck, I still have it and it is still for sale (although I will miss having it on display!). I'd be happy to work out a deal with you. Just send me an e-mail at and we can work out the details. :)

Thank you. :) (I don't mean to be a bother though! If you want to keep it on display that's okay.)

I love both your sets! I was wondering what you were using for the bases. I know you use Fimo for the actual figures, but the bases look so uniform that I figured I'd ask - like, are you putting them on wargaming figurine bases? Or are you using a mold? 

Basically I kind of want to make a set of my own (even though I don't play chess), and wish to learn at least a little at the feet of a master. 

(Also, do you think Sculpey would work? Or is it too soft? I recall Fimo being quite firm.)

Glad you like them :) The base is fimo like the figurines. I used two different shampoo bottle tops (for the pawns and for the rest) to basically stencil them out of a sheet of clay. I've never used sculpey as it doesn't exist in Europe, but I've always been told that it's the same stuff as fimo, just a different brand. They're both polymer clay. As for the firmness, some fimo is indeed very firm. In fact, some of it is so hard it hurts my fingers to work with, but that might be too old or something. I almost exclusively use fimo soft, which is a slightly softer version of classic.

Ahh, ok. That explains why they're all nice and uniform with fancy edges! 

Sculpey is generally much softer than Fimo, whether the Fimo's old or not. Fimo Soft sounds like it's probably around the same consistency as Sculpey, so, hooray! Regular (firm) Fimo will give better detail but is, as your fingers can attest to, quite firm and difficult to work with.

I wanted to mention something about the bishops...but...I forgot what I was going to say.

Did you make the board as well? If so, what is the board made out of?
