Heroes: Chess Edition minis (Tower vs. Dungeon)
I really like chess, even if I lose a lot of times, I love Heroes III, where I almost always lose online 😀 , and the combination of the two games is magical for me. I just randomly found this project under some comment about Heroes III, so I immediately contacted the author and wanted more information, Heroes: Chess Edition deserves it!
Figures are produced in 3 versions: gold, silver and copper. As you can see from the photos, they look amazing. You can also buy them individually and use them, perhaps, in the upcoming Heroes III board game. Scroll down for pricing and more photos.

Chess is an abstract strategy game that involves no hidden information and no use of dice or cards. It is played on a chessboard with 64 squares arranged in an eight-by-eight grid. At the start, each player controls sixteen pieces: one king, one queen, two rooks, two bishops, two knights, and eight pawns. White moves first, followed by Black. Checkmating the opponent’s king involves putting the king under immediate attack (in “check”) whereby there is no way for it to escape. There are also several ways a game can end in a draw.
One of the goals of early computer scientists was to create a chess-playing machine. In 1997, Deep Blue became the first computer to beat the reigning World Champion in a match when it defeated Garry Kasparov. Today’s chess engines are significantly stronger than the best human players and have deeply influenced the development of chess theory.
