Set in the France of the early Seventeenth century The Three Musketeers is the story of the struggle between the two centres of power, the church and the monarchy, between the ineffectual Louis XIII and his flamboyant court and the scheming Cardinal Richelieu and his agents.
Both factions employed elite bodyguards which commanded great prestige:The king's Musketeers and the Cardinal's Musketeers. The Adventures of the Musketeers Athos, Porthos, and Aramis with their young ally D'Artagnan are immortalised in the classic works of Alexandre Dumas, The Three Musketeers, The Four Musketeers and The Man in the Iron Mask.
Hand Painted Finish means that the chess theme is carefully researched to be as historically accurate as possible and painted with Vallejo acrylic paints by our experienced Irish artists. Each layer has to be dryed before the next layer can be applied. Many specialist techniques are deployed including 'drybrushing' and 'washes' to create glowing colours that catch the eye and make our painted sets stand out head and shoulders over our competition. All pieces are designed by our internationally famous designer Chris Tubb.
