The bishops don't have a single stud on the top - it's actually a black lightsaber-sword part. The cones fit them perfectly.The rooks don't look too bad in person, but I can see where you're going with the cumbersomeness. Unfortunately, I couldn't get them down to 3x3 at the top without them looking completely unrecognizable. As it is, they only have a problem when next to a knight.
Great work Sumi! I really like the King's "crown", as well as the way you make the Bishops narrow gradually (that special little single-stud is really nice). However, the Rooks look a bit awkward with the incredibly large tops. Any way to make it more compact?
DANG IT, NOW I NEED TO MAKE A TEAL AND PURPLE CHESS SETI suppose I overdid the stylization on the knights. I suppose I could try bullnose bricks, but I'm not sure if they come in black and white. I don't think I'm very good at building in confined spaces, but I'll keep tinkering with it to see if I can come up with something a bit more realistic.Yes, I have indeed played on it. I've beaten my dad and my dad has beaten me - though I'm proud to say that, for the first time in my life, the former is more common than the latter.
No teal? :PI like the work on this chess set, and LEGO chess sets in all are awesome. The bishops are nice, but like Paleo said, the rooks could be a bit smaller at the top. Also, could there be a way to make the knights look a bit more horse-like? Overall, nice job. Have you played on it yet?

Oh. I thought they were kings because they looked fancier.
Those are actually the queens; the queens always go on their own color.They are skeleton pieces. Exo-Force arms are too thick to use.
