Description

This chess set follows a more traditional but beautiful design, which stays true to the LOTR theme. This particular set is one of a three-set series made by the same manufacturer, featuring a separate collection of characters, each on uniquely styled boards. When it comes to the pieces, the makers use resin to create a level of detail that is hard to achieve with most materials. The pieces feature every major character from the series. As with most of the others, it has the heroes on one side and the villains on the other side. Some of you may know stone is another frequent material used for chess sets, and marble is particularly popular because it looks and feels so luxurious. However, there are some minor problems with marble sets. Firstly, they’re a little more fragile than they appear, so care is needed. Second, the very qualities that make marble attractive—its rich colors and veining—can be an active distraction in a chess set. They give the pieces a tendency to blend in with the board because the color contrast isn’t enough and the veins disrupt the piece outlines. Best Option For Those in the UK:
