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
