A Lord of the Rings Chess Set


Here is a hand made Lord of the Rings Chess set made by Floyd. He used a series of Prince August molds to make the pieces. You can check out the molds here.

And he has his own website devoted to miniatures! You can check it out here: Floyd's Miniatures . I love the first picture on the site!

Here is what Floyd has to say about making this set:

I have some attached photos of a Middle Earth themed chess set I made for my six year old son, Spencer.  This was achieved through the use of your 25mm fantasy molds.  My son absolutely loves the set and wants to play it every night!  The "Forces of Evil" side consist of orcs, goblin wolf riders, two giant spiders (the only non-Prince August figures that I used).  The "Forces of Good" side consist of dwarves, barbarians, an elf, and a mounted knight.  Feel free to post the photos in your gallery if you would like. 

The wooden case for the set I bought at a craft store.  I decorated the wooden box by free hand drawing a map that was in "The Hobbit" book and then wood burning it on the box.  I used "pluck foam" to put in the case to protect the miniatures.

You can check out my tutorials on making rubber molds here


This is the completed chess set.
