That pose is a great idea, i will be having that for my second 'knight'

As for the black rods, where would you find some that are sturdy enough?

Keep the ideas coming guys they are great!

Thick paper clips work. One should be sturdy enough to hold up a plastic marine, even a metal marine actually. Its what I use to keep my seraphim up in the air. Although becareful with placement of the model on the base as it can mess up the balance, especially on the normal infantry bases.

A WIP of my 'pawns' , bases have not been started but just to give you an idea, sorry about the crappy picture quality:

Also my 'knights', couldn't help but use this model just the way it was, and below is the previously posted assault marine just with a different jump pack:

That would be a cool idea but might be a tad big for the board

just using movement and firepower as a basis for choosing which units represent the diffferent chess pieces, I'd have to say a dread is better suited to be the king, slow moving, but packs a whallop.

But that's just me.

Also, yeah, a little too big for 1" squares.

cheers guys ,

a dread would be awesome! but yea a little to big i think

bit more progress

The first of two chaplains (bishops)

I'm really happy with the pose on this model, think it looks really menacing and captures the spirit of a chaplain well, driving his men on with faith, i wanted to surround him with the aquila to show that the emperors always with him, there fore on the backpack to show the emperor looking down on him (guiding him) , crozius (for bringing the emperors might to the standing against him etc etc) , and on his chest (close to his hearts) , corny i know but i think it's pretty cool

Tell me what you think!

its looking pretty good. but if you want a suggestion? look up white scars, its an actual chapter that happens to go along with white as their colour. it would be a good army to use if you want white, but dont want to do the whole unique army one side, very well known army on the other.

Also, what terminators are you going to use? you would have to make the board spaces bigger to accomidate the big stands, unless your useing the small stand termies on both sides.

It is looking really good so far, I'll be watching with interest. (I've always wanted a fancy chess board, so with a bit of jealousy too. )

I'd like to suggest a different approach to the chaos 'queen' though; the masque is a great model but alongside all the space marines she might get a lost in all those bulky armoured men. For a bit of radical (and mostly veering away from the fluff... a bit) choice I suggest using Celestine the Living Saint and converting her to a Slaanesh corrupt sister, she has the height and prescence to represent a powerful model. (The cloak would have to be changed as its a bit wide.)

Hope that wasn't too bold a suggestion. If you think its awful fair... I just thought the queen needed to be powerful and at least one of them actually a girl. (Not just a daemon.... or is there much difference there??? )
