Should I put my chess set into production?

Would you consider a small brick pattern on the Rooks?Also maybe the Knights show the eyes on the horse?

I can't wait for LoveMag to come back and show us the latest modifcations to his pieces that he found on that little disc of his!!! hahaha

Do you have any proof? If not, just say nothing... Come on.

So what is with your manic behavior when you discuss Love Magnet?

I wouldn't be at all surprised if you had some creepy little "shrine" to Love Magnet in your house, like with his picture in the middle, and print outs of his posts in this thread you've scribbled on with red crayons, maybe a few candles burning and amulets.

That's how disturbed you're coming off.

radioarno....  Regardless of the actual reason why LoveMag (as you call him) started this thread, you are starting to sound as though you're a bit in love with him.

one thought that came into my mind after viewing the set and some of the comments:

why not make the pieces when viewed from the top to be more triangular or square instead of round?  not with sharp edges but very large radius arcs in each corner.  so viewed from the top it would be a very soft triangle with one of the rounded corners facing forward or a very soft square with one of the soft corners facing forward.  and when viewed from the side the curve would be flaring towards the bottom as the shape increase in thickness.  the reason i make this suggestion is as a possible design solution to the designer wanting to keep the arms, so it would make the rest of the piece less symmetrical about the center point. it would also make the set more distinctive from the so many that are "turned", which addresses one of the other comments.  that's the nice thing about these modeling programs--you can create multiple designs before making a final choice.

hmm, interesting, @teocaf your suggestion is a particular variation on what tmkroll suggested a few pages back. I'm loathe to give up the rounded, body shapes, but your suggestion with the rounded triangle or rounded square would indeed take it further from a Saunton variant, which is what tkkroll's principal objection was,  if I understood his objection correctly. @teocaf, What would you have in mind for the pawns? Would you suggest the same rounded triange/square for the pawns?

btw, again @teocaf, I liked your post. It was nice imagining the image that corresponded to your suggestion. nice. 

teocaf

yes, i would imagine that the pawns would take the same shape in keeping with a unified look for the set.  they would look almost like very stylized "tunics" or "capes", if that makes any sense

When is this guy going to post more pics?
