The most long-term project I've ever undertaken is finally complete!  'tis a chess set, where the traditional pieces are replaced by fantasy figures.  Here's the 'warm colors' side.

king :: elf     queen :: fairy     bishop :: wizard     knight :: dragon     rook :: castle tower     pawn :: dwarf

[medium: sculpey clay.  Each figurine stands between 2 and 2.5cm.]

It's easier to see on the warm set what with the yellow and orange (vs. the blue and purple), but I like how you used slightly different colors for each of the bishops and knights. That was a particularly swanky touch.

I would play a lot more if I had these chess pieces.
I love the colors.

my only prob is with the different colour dragons its a little confusing for a chess player. Prefer the previous one to this set.
