Christmas gift; Knights vs. Vikings chess set
 
First of all, Merry Christmas to all!
It's about 2:30 am, Christmas morning. I just finished this chess set as a gift for my Dad.

That's a really nice idea, looks great too. I'm sure he'll love it. I would. :ok:

Great work! I have the same planed for myself. Just can't decide on what races to use. Elves vs Ork maybe.

That looks awesome! Great work

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?

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.

Thank you! Actually, they are all Reaper. I made an order online, through their web store, and took care of the purchases coming from one place. Reaper has so many different minis that they were just the smart choice to turn to for what I needed. :grin:

I'll do that right now!:grin:
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.

Awesome. They've got a lot of neat models. Cozy little store too. I'll probably pay it a visit next week when I visit my Grandmother on my moms side.

Its awesome to hear that your dad liked it.

I've never been to the actual store, I bet it's awesome! :grin:

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!

Didn't get a chance to comment earlier but I really, wholeheartedly, love this. Definite steal for my dad next year! :ok:
