Great set
Nice, large, well made, solid heavy pieces with good contrast and classical esthetic. The faux oxidation looks well, but appears artificial on close inspection, and gives an aged but dusty feel. The brass is quite nice. A word of caution, the queen's spear tip is razor sharp, making the neither suitable nor safe for small children. A good conversation piece, as well as a fun to play set, with only mild confusion of recognition between the queen and bishops, as they are of simul size and shape...

These are beautiful 'state of the art' chess pieces. My children are thrilled as well - they love mythology. The pieces seem to come alive as you play chess. one big battle field. The quality is superb. Very pleased I purchased this!
