Handmade custom themed hand carved chess sets by Jim Arnold's Chess Sets on etsy. Custom themed pieces, private commissions, hand carved chess sets. The base of the castle measures about 36" square the castle is modeled after three different castles in Scotland, the 'keeps' are an exact copy. There are over 2,000 carved bricks in the castle and piece bases. It's over 17" tall from the base of the castle walls to the top of King John's flag.

The pieces are hand carved from solid Maple and Walnut...king's over 10" tall...pawns over 6" tall. There's nothing like this anywhere! The set depicts the 30 years long War for Scottish Independence. Features King John of Scotland versus Edward I of England, their wives for queens, church royalty for bishops coats of arms for knights (they are awesome!), the Long Spearmen for Scotland's pawns.

The game is in your face because the squares and pieces have the nearly the same base dimensions, its so big you literally feel like your the King. The set comes with two sets of flags, one Scottish, one English, winner gets to fly his flags until defeated. During the thirty years wars the same castle was often won and lost several times.

A pure joy to play on!
