Diagrams for Fairy Chess Pieces

Each player will play with the usual 16 chess pieces + 2 new pieces, the new pieces are identical for both players. The choice of the new pieces is an agreement: white chooses the first piece and then black chooses the second piece.
There are 10 musketeer pieces: Leopard, Hawk, Chancellor, Archbishop, Elephant, Unicorn, Cannon, Dragon, Fortress and Spider.

Diagrams for Fairy Chess Pieces

Post by musketeerchess » Tue Mar 21, 2017 4:41 pm

Hi friends
I'm not satisfied with many Diagrams of the Musketeer Chess pieces. If you have suggestions, sketches don't hesitate to share.

The latest example was Archbishop and Chancellor. I think the new diagrams really give these new pieces a new personnality.

Best regards

Zied

Yes, they are awesome.
They really grant these pieces with a unique style and personnality.
Wish our friends will help us finding ideas to improve our work.

Thanks to you Jérôme, Musketeer Chess website and Jocly website evolve continuously.

I didn't realize the Musketeer collection has a piece that looks like Saturn! When using the huygens (a piece which jumps prime numbers of squares) is it OK if I use this graphic for the piece? It's a perfect icon for the huygens, because the huygens is best used on the infinite chessboard. The shape of "Saturn" represents the fact that the huygens can jump really far.

Hi
You can naturally use it to represent the Huygens.

Hi Jerome
Why not making the same diagrams as shown but with different engravement (crossed swords and Eagle, like for the NexGen Pawns)

Also some of our visitors would like to have the choice between the diagrams representing Archbishop and Chancellor.

In fact, i much like the current design, but sometimes they remind the KKK (with the cross) that's why i suggest to develop other alternate designs and give the possibility during the game to customize the Archbishop and Chancellor.

Hi Jerome
This is an alternate design for Archbishop and Chancellor.
For the moment they are intended to be used in the Board Painter.
