Neimoidian Chess Set design by Kweh-chan Neimoidian Chess Set design by Kweh-chan
So I was completely inspired (and blown away) by :icontryphosa20:'s amazing gift to me, which features a "Neimoidianised" chess set, and I knew that, at some point, I HAD to make it! 

I'm planning on making this a reality. The magazine with my baby, Zill, comes out tomorrow where I live, and I'll be going into town to pick up a copy, and hopefully scout out some toy and craft shops where I can buy a chess set and some sculpey. I think this is probably a somewhat romanticised version of what I'll end up with - there's no way I can afford wood and a proper chessboard like that. I will, however, be repainting a chessboard and applying a Sovereign Beetle mark on each square.


BTW, The Daily Dot totally did an article about me and getting a Star Wars character named after me :D. Casually leaving this here: www.dailydot.com/fandom/star-w…

Have you thought about sculpting these in the computer and putting them up on Shapeways for download? I'd love a copy of this game myself (I'm a chess set collector).

I haven't, no. I haven't had much luck with 3D rendering programmes - I'm far better with Sculpey.

But thank you :D

Holy rusted metal Batman! Not only did you get this done lighting quick (compared to my tortoise speed) who did it so elegantly! Wow, the more I see this concept the more I think this is like the second bestest use for Neimoidan hats, ever lol. Honestly, I'm a little sad I couldn't include every hat, each one is so unique. I love that with yours I can see much more detail and them at this large size; it's easy to distinguish each hat for us non-neimoidian experts ;P. This is a super impressive set. I really hope you project will be a success and you get your desired results. <3<3

That beetle mark, did you make that brush design yourself? I'm thinking that brush would come in handy for other possible future pictures ;).

Wow, thank you so much <3. 

You had a super good idea with the Neimoidian hats, so I would definitely have to agree with it being the second-best use :D. I was half-tempted to use different hats for each colour, but I thought that would get too complicated both for me and for any potential players. 

It's actually from the magazine cover I did; you can see this specific mark in the corners of the name tags. It's just some some linework, rather than a brush shape (I use SAI, rather than Photoshop), but you're right! It would make a great brush for future projects!

Reminds me of the Star Wars chess set I used to have. Nute Gunray was the knight and Rune Haako was the bishop for the black pieces. The black pieces are the villains btw.

I have the two pieces from that in my Neimoidian/Duros collection...I'm half-tempted to get the complete set.
