Can you say Classical? Classical with flair? Then you can see this set! Medieval
Times Theme Chess Set is the word for a beautiful, classically oriented, and all-round
stunning theme set! Red and Blue clear acrylic bases give each piece extra lustre
and eye-candy value. Also, with providing the bust of these pieces, the faces
and distinctive features of each piece can be much larger and clearer!
Set in Medieval times, the kings are imposing figures in their crown and armor,
with the striking queen at their sides in her jewels and coronet. The bishops
look very much like authentic Bishops with fine embroidered robes and distinctive
headgear. Then, on to the knights; or shall we say, horses? The portrait of
these warhorses captures both the strength and intelligence of the horses that
formed the core of medieval armies. The rooks could be nothing else but a castle
to denote the strength and power of medieval countries and nations. And finally,
the one who bore the brunt of battle, the heavily armored knight masquerades
as the lowly pawn. I think I'd think twice about the 'lowly' part!
With the 'blue' pieces having blue acrylic bases and blue and green motifs,
and the 'red' pieces with red acrylic bases and red and royal purple motifs,
you are ready to venture into battle against all comers!
