White Rook by darksilvania White Rook by darksilvania
Eight piece in my Chess serie

The White Rooks
"Rooks are one of the most important pieces in the royal army, excellent for defending, excellent for attacking.
The White rooks are sentient watchtowers, built to be both warriors and Fortification. Tall as a tree, strong as a mountain, Fast as the wind, this androids can see in all direction, and will react with the speed of a lighting. Its imposing look is said to be based in those of Cherubs, from the ancient texts, with four heads (man, lion, bull and vulture) and 2 pairs of wings.
This mighty sentinels are armed with a pair of modified Sabres, used with extreme speed and keen movement."

Next piece comming soon.

I kinda like the Black Rook better because it seems to make a bit more sense- I guess I could always imagine a Rook decked out in white and gold though

It's interesting, White Rook is actually the designation of my Dark Eldar Kabaal, and this happens to be my favourite piece in the set.

Looked at your whole series (thus far). It's really neat. I like the complexity that goes into the pieces. You also gave each a kind of twist. :3

Black Rooks fire cannons in all four directions, And the White Rook does slashing dashes in all four directions?

If i could make metal figurines I would totally make a chess set based on these drawings. But i don't know how :(
It would also need a crazy awesome Board too.

It would be so epic if:
1. Wizard's Chess were real.
2. These pieces were used in such a game of Wizard's Chess.

Interesting idea for a Rook. Very interesting indeed if they are mostly drones then i guess they would be around the rooks as only a few and many up nearer to the higher ranks of chess peices i would guess. All the same awesome detail and just a good idea here

Also, I hear cherubs also had eyes on their wings. Kind of weird if you ask me.

I like it, but it lacks the ranged capabillities of the black rook... Oh well. It can fly, so I guess it has an advantage..

I'm sorry, I look too much into these things. Nice work. Reminds me of some of the angels out of Bayonetta.
