Day 98~366

Today I thought to macro some of the chess pieces from the set I shot for March’s ‘squares’ month, couldn’t do just one though 🙂 All the chess pieces have different faces and names, the latter being engraved on the bottom of each piece’s plinth. These are my favourite pawns.

Not sure what a Buccas, Nixie or Kobold is but hey ho, they all look cute to me. Each piece is between 2&3 inches tall.

    1. Yes I think over 2 years I paid £500 for the whole set, but £20 a month between 2 of us want so bad. 😊 sad that it’s consigned to the loft mostly.

  3. I once bought years of a part-work, and the binders to keep the magazines in. I dread to think what the total cost was. When I moved somewhere, I found them all neatly stacked in the loft, unseen for years. Luckily I was able to pass the whole thing on to someone else who was interested.
    The contrast with the jewels works well, and the details on the different pieces are well-rendered indeed.
    Best wishes, Pete.

    1. Cheers Pete, well unfortunately this is going back in my loft now, Hub doesn’t play and we’ve got nowhere to keep it out as a decoration. 🙂
