About this deal

The 32 chess pieces are unique figurines, handcrafted by master sculptors in metallic resin. Character likenesses, attire and weaponry have been meticulously reproduced down to the finest detail. This spectacular Characters And Creatures Of Middle Earth Chess Set portrays a magical cast of characters and creatures to represent the free races of Middle-earth and their implacable enemies, the forces of Mordor, from The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Below the playing surface, you will find a map of Middle-earth. The base has images of the most notable characters and scenes from the films. They are all made out of fine pewter. It has a great playing surface that measures about 11 inches square. The board is about 2.5 inches in height. The board itself is made of a hardwood, polished to a golden brown color, with a chequered finish. Around the perimeter, you will see niches carved out where you can place the pieces after you are playing. It is quite an impressive set.

Do you remember when we mentioned that some of these chess sets are subtle in their LOTR styling? Well, this is not one of those subtle designs. When canvassing the markets to find the best chess sets in the style of Lord of the Rings (LOTR), you will find a considerable number of them in the market. As for the characters, each one is a well-detailed and accurate depiction of the actors you saw in the films. Other decorations on the board include a map of middle earth, carved out on the playing surface. The map has the effect of achieving the look of a great display piece. The board itself measures 15 by 4.5 inches. The top, where the pieces go, is Plexiglas and the rest of it is porcelain (cold cast). The Plexiglas and the design of the chess set prevent it from damage when you play.As a luxury chess set, the Eaglemoss makes this list because it strived to get the classic traditional look right, while also being very true to the LOTR theme. All pawn pieces on each side are played using the same character. A pair of a single character represents the knight, bishops and rook pairs. The design makes it easy to know which character plays which part, unlike the other boards on this lost.
