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.
