Lord of the Rings chess pieces

£109.95

Commissioned by renowned English sculptor Dennis Fairweather, this set brings to life some of Lord of the Rings' most iconic characters. Approved by the Tolkien estate, the set is cold-cast and stained to give an antique finish, the two sides to this set are differentiated by an ebony/ivory colour. We recommend playing these pieces on a 16" board. (Board not included.)

  • King: Aragon, also known as Strider or the Heir of Isildur (3" tall)
  • Queen: Lady Galadriel

  • Knight: Ring-wraiths, nazgul, or black riders
