lets just start with the critics. :)
Maybe the pawn is a bit to small compared to the rest.
If i could make this i made the pawn a half higher, to about that black line on the rook under the white V.
But that is my vision on it. overall its an super awesome set.
I would like to see the other team. I get a realy good feeling about how high the structures are.
Also, the king is a bit not shielded enough i thing compared to the others, its quitte thin for a king.
Awesome thing u made there i really like that style.
i wish i could draw something like that

I love this, merely because of the level of detail and art. Honestly, the amount of detail you put into this from the soldier on the rook, to the little square on the queen. I love the shading, and everything, it is absolutely wonderful. I also like how the pawn provides a bit of comic amusement with it's eyes. The colors used are also very evocative of a futuristic playing board/slash warfare, providing a realistic view that still hints at the future. The clever use of painting symbols is very smart, and clearly indentifies each piece, even if you couldn't see it by the shape. The only thing I'm mildly displeased with is you don't have the full set up, and the king doesn't seem as ornamental as the queen. I believe the King, because it is the more valuable piece on the board, should be more ornate, sort of like a ceremonial weapon, because you rarely use the king unless you have to. Otherwise, bravo, and well done!

Damn dude, this is awesome! Especially the bishop :) and the pawn is just aww :D 
This is bloody brilliant! Would it be much to ask, if I were to adapt the knight's design to something steampunk, for use in a game?

They got a very unique look, but I like them. They would fit very nicely into a Sci-fi game.

Oh boy! What a great work, i just love this mech-style :)  Just lets imagine this kind of design would be used for the generic windows-chess game, microsoft would probably double its income^^
