Thank you, I'm glad you like it! I recommend getting an early jumpstart on it though. I did have some distractions between now and October when I started. The reaction and look on his face was very rewarding and worth the work.

I'm sure I'll end up going to the store while I'm down visiting my Grandma, so I'll see about getting some pictures of the store for you. They've got some pretty neat dioramas in a back room that are awesome.
The first couple games were great! He was excited about seeing all the pieces assembled on the board for the first time and said it was the coolest Chess Game he has ever had

If you get pics of the store, that would be great!

I admit I was slightly stressed he wouldn't like it, but, the figures, case, and board just brought it all together and he liked it! For once, I hit the gift nail square on the head with him!

I'll do that right now!
He loved it! It took him by surprise and he's excited to get in a game at home. I bought him the new Citadel Skirmish case to keep the minis in when he isn't playing. That case is actually perfect for the pieces.

Thank you, I'm hoping he does! He is a huge Chess player and has a fold out cardboard game mat and the same plastic pieces for longer than I've been alive, no joke that's a fact, it's the same box set up he was given by my grandparents a few years before he and my mother married.

Thank you! Whichever races you choose, I'm sure it will look good! I'm considering doing another one for myself, but, unsure if I want different pieces or just buy the same ones again.

I recognize the Viking Hero, Amon model from Reaper Minis. Awesome little model, despite the horned helmet. Where did you get the rest of the minis from?
