LOM: Brick Chess!
Don't let that pawn-croissant undo your rank check from the horse to the castle! Chess, LOM style.
About this creation














This is it: My long-awaited, Lands-of-Mythron-themed Lego chess set, complete with thirty-two unique minifigure pieces. Rainos (red) shows down against Mythron (blue) in a battle of bricks, and I will match any LOM challenger in a battle of wits! Who is up for a game (one at a time, please)?



King Leo and Queen Leonora from KKI stand behind the pawn commanders. Long live the classics!



Princess Storm from KKI, customized with new armor techniques, takes the role of the black bishop and Sir Macfiercest from one of my recent LOM entries rides his charger into battle.



A member of my main character's entourage takes the rook. You might have noticed by now that half of the chess pieces are female; I built the first six Rainosian pieces and realized that they were balanced, so I made the rest of the board that way.



Sir Richard from KKI fills the position of the right bishop and MacFiercest's squire, Leslie, takes the second horse.



The queen's-side rook is none other than my protagonist, (soon-to-be) Sir Steven!



In front of Steven are soldiers from the Iber clan of Rainos, serving as pawns in this battle.



The pawn leaders prepare to charge!



These pawns are new, and they don't resemble any fighting force that I know of. Maybe they will reappear as Bartok's royal guards in my next MOC.



King Rowan of Mythron stands at the side of an unnamed lady in his third appearance in an LOM MOC!



On the right we have the black bishop and another member of Sir MacFiercest's entourage, who seems to have been press-ganged for his plate armor. Again.



At the corner stands a Carthalian crossbowman, ready to put a bolt in anyone within a straight line of him.



The other end of the row is, of course, similar. This time the bishop is played by the haughty Sir Black and the knight is a more-or-less random Mythronian cavalrywoman.



Surprise! It's another Carthalian provincial soldier. Wait until you see the pawns.



As promised, Carthalian legionnaires make up half of the Mythronian pawn section. No barbarian rabble can stand up to this highly-trained fighting force... or so say the people of Carthal.




These pawns are led by General d'Colore, an antagonist from two of my earliest LOM builds, and a new Falmorish commander. Her troops stand to her right...



Hold on, this rabble makes the Ibers look sharp! Wait, that's no regular set of grunts - that's the legendary George Marshall, Lord of Falmor, and his archer! Why the state of undress? Well, George can't understand armor until his fourth cup of coffee in the morning, and his sidekick always dresses like that. Go figure.







There it is - the first ever LOM chess set. Although I'm not normally impressed by minifigures, it took a surprising amount of time to make them and even the great George Marshalllll (no, not the one who can't figure out a simple breastplate) would admit that some of the Purist customs on the minifigures are fairly nice... maybe even comment-worthy.

It's ok if you don't want to join, just know that we won't be doing much more than writing lore and history, if you ever feel especially creative you know where I'll be!

Quoting George Marshall Haha, looks great! Although Mythron obviously has the advantage with my lovely companion and I fighting as lowly pawns. ;)
Yes, and my leadership - I ended up flipping Mythron for the first game.
