Cthulhu Chess set

I finished this Cthulhu-themed chess set last night. I've been working feverishly on this for a while now, and I think it was completely worth it! It is totally hand-made by myself from sculpting a chunk of wax to cutting out little felt pieces for the feet.
This one is going to go up for sale on eBay tonight, but I am keeping the moulds so I can make more.

The kings (Cthulhu) have precious stones for eyes; the white piece has spherical lab-created rubies, the black piece has salt water pearls.
The queen is Nyarlathotep (has a single large tentacle for a face).
The bishops are Father Dagon/ Mother Hydra (take your pick).
The knights are Hounds of Tindalos (the knights move in angles, and in the mythos the hounds are supposed move through angles).
The rooks are shoggoths
The pawns are Deep Ones.

Re: Cthulhu Chess set

Exquisite. Truly delicious.

Shouldn't people be the pawns, though. Or would that be too great a compliment for humanity?

Seriously though, lovely work. You'll have no trouble selling quite a few of those, if anyone has any taste at all.

Re: Cthulhu Chess set

Cheers,

Re: Cthulhu Chess set

This is indescribably gorgeous. Or unmentionably beautiful.
Wish I hadn't missed the ebay auction.

Re: Cthulhu Chess set

Wow, brilliant idea and very well executed. I imagine that a pair of Lovecraft fans playing with these would make for some mighty interesting games!

Re: Cthulhu Chess set

Gorgeous artworks, eclectix, are they on display anywhere? Or are you planning on selling them? I noticed this is an old thread, I suppose if you were thinking of selling them, you already sold them by now, right ?
