    Pawn-- the main representation of chess. Also the simplest look.

    King-- the secondary representation of chess. The tallest chess piece.

    Queen-- weird, edgy, spikey. :P

    Rook-- Tank looking. Suggests thoughts of support rank.

    Bishop-- Also rather support looking. A little sniper.

    Knight-- Beastmode activated.

    Rooks look sturdy and reliable. I think they are both my favourite visually, my favourite over all, and the ones I use the best considering their relative value.

    and jamesmichael, the pawn is in a tie with the rook for appearance in my opinion, but i chose a rook because its slightly more detailed. i just like both of them a lot
