Really wonderful. They would also work as great pieces for a chess set.

The pieces are wonderful. How do you like the game? Couple years back I made a Brandubh (7×7 board) and it took awhile to tweak the rules for balanced gameplay otherwise whoever started would win almost everytime.

These are really cool. The character of the pieces is quite fitting.

I had no idea what tafl games were before I saw your pieces. After some google research I was surprised at all the variants! Tonight I taught my 10 and 7 yr old kids to place a simple version (sea battle Hnefatafl) and they loved it. I’ve added some of these tafl games to my ‘to make’ project list! Thanks so much for the introduction to this game(s).
Cheers
