Cthulhu Chess Set
A 3D printed, hand painted Cthulhu inspired chess set with a board with two inch tiles.
“The Thing cannot be described - there is no language for such abysms of shrieking and immemorial lunacy, such eldritch contradictions of all matter, force, and cosmic order. A mountain walked or stumbled.
If I say that my somewhat extravagant imagination yielded simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature, I shall not be unfaithful to the spirit of the thing. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings; but it was the general outline of the whole which made it most shockingly frightful.”
All pieces have weighted bases and felt pads to protect the boards.
This is a unique chess set that would make an ideal gift for any Lovecraft fan.
Note that these sets are made to order and may take up to 6 weeks to despatch.
Pieces are hand painted so may vary slightly from the photos.
The board is sourced to order to match the selected piece colours so may vary from the one shown.
Original concept art by Luciana Nedelea and 3D modelling by Sergio Mengual.
The King piece is 2.6 inches / 6.7 cm tall.
The Pawn piece is 1.7 inches / 4.5 cm tall.
