This set of three double moulds which cast the six pieces required to make a complete chess set side: King, Queen, Bishop, Knight, Rook, Pawn. You will require about 18 bars of metal to complete a full chess set. Chess Painting Guide (PDF).

The complete Egyptian chess set has two sides, the Egyptians and the Assyrians.

The Assyrian king is a depiction of Sennacherib, the eighth century king who sacked Babylon and attacked Judah, together with his queen. The bishops are represented by the Assyrian god Marduk, the lord of thunder and an important deity amongst this people.The Knight is an Assyrian mounted archer and the pawn an Assyrian light infantryman. The rook is a depiction of one of the great carved winged lions which guard various Assyrian royal buildings, principally at the great palace at Nineveh and which are important symbols of royalty.

Painting information.

  • In addition to filing off any flash from the figure, the bottom should be flattened where the ingate was removed.
  • Wash the figure in warm soapy water in preparation for painting.
  • Prime the pieces with a white undercoat as many of the colours are light. Allow 24 hours to dry.
  • Paint as supplied is usually too thick. Thin with the appropriate thinners until it covers the areas touched by the brush but does not spread to other areas.
  • Dry brushing is used to give large areas a subtle blended effects blending the black undercoat with a colour on raised areas. This is also used to add highlights to raised areas giving the look of more depth and animation. Washing is used to add a colour mainly to the foulds.
  • We recommend that you give the figures a coat of either matt or gloss varnish.
