About The Pewter Fantasy Chessmen

This Fantasy chess set will transport you to the literary world of Tolkien and the even older Arthurian lore of dragons, fair maidens, castle towers, brave stallions, wizards and warriors. It is the imagery and narrative steeped in early European legend that has stirred our imaginations for centuries. The beautifully cast pewter chessmen will delight players young and old alike. You will want to display this gorgeous chess set for all to admire.

Our thoughts: These pieces come with a felt underlay on each piece that you, like us, may find is really not adequate for the purpose felts are usually provided, to protect a chessboard surfacing from scratching. You may feel they are fine or you may want to add some felt material on your own. The pewter pieces have an amazing heavy feel and inspiring presence, so it's a pity the felts are less than impressive.

Heavy and great detail. But…

The product description is not wrong. The felts are crap and will need to be replaced on a couple pieces. The pieces are wrapped in plastic and a couple pieces had the felt completely ripped off because the felt was improperly placed on the piece, causing the felt to attach to the plastic and rip off entirely. Other than that, the set worth getting an arrow in the knee over.

Very pleased

I totally agree with Chess Houses "Our Thoughts" write up. I am very happy with the pieces, their dimensions, art, weight, etc. I am disappointed with the felt on the bottom. I expect to have to replace all of them ASAP. :-(
The only other piece of feedback I'd like to offer is that the workmanship and detail, while artistically fine, is a little rough. Now, I happen to be OK with a worn/rough kind of a look, but other may not be.
