Um, they are pewter. However, I do agree that it's way too expensive.
if they are Pewter they are using the HOC / SFC molds. There is no real original work here, no new sculpts. I've seen some beautiful chess sets and I always thought a tf one would have been wonderful. This is not a chess set I would take out to wow another chess player. I agree with koloth when he says:
An expensive high quality chess set should look like an expensive high quality chess set. Something you display proudly. I would hide this thing in shame.
This is not what I consider high quality. It is expensive though, but for what? As I have said, I am pretty certaan they are having a reuse of the HOC figures.
I probably won't be getting this unless I see changes, or maybe there'll be one I like somewhere else. Glad I did not preorder it myself..I thought about it.
I have seen wonderful sets for 200 canadian, detailed peices, amazing board...
