I get what you are saying but don't quite agree because a flag station can't eliminate you

A VIP player would make sense but I'm not sure how you would represent that

Maybe have the queen be a paintball tank and the king a player with a launcher? Difficult to move with but deadly at close range?

This would be very hard to keep track of while playing

Pawns = bunkers

rooks = player with a shield

knights = player sitting on another players shoulders (piggy backing)

bishops = standard speed ball player

queen = Docs idea of a heavy arms style juggernaut player. In my head I see something akin to the old image of that kid with the double barreled markers in each hand, tried to find the image but no luck finding the one with the kid but this was the set up. The queen should also have a tattered dress/skirt and a beat up tiara.

also like this idea because its a throw back to the old underground mod shop

king = again docs idea of a player with an old pump and two tubes of paint.

I feel like they should all be players - bunkers etc. don't move so it's weird.

Bunkers: extra rules, block movement.

Pawn - kid with a rental. Very short.
Rook - Dual pistols, or pistol and shield
Knight - Magfed player
Bishop - Speedballer
Queen - Heavy juggernaught as described
King - player holding the flag.

You can play regular chess, or PB chess.

PB chess:
Set up as usual but add 4-6 bunker shapes in the middle. Players can take turns choosing where to put these.
You can shoot or move. Meaning, a piece can take a piece it can see in the usual way, *or* can just shoot them and stay put. The taken piece must be in a position where the aggressor could normally take it that turn. Obviously this way of playing will be all crazy and probably wont work, but screw it, it'll be fun to try.

How are you planning to make them? Zbrush? Regular CAD will be impossible for this.

Wow I did not expect to get so many great ideas! My biggest regret is that I can't do all of them. Maybe I'll be forced to make several sets. There are some limitations on certain ideas, I've seen a lot of chess sets with humans as the pieces, and imo they are all really hard to distinguish which piece is which instantly. However, I liked Captains idea with the players and bunker pawns which makes me wanna try it with people. Also love the idea to have different styles of guns or equipment. Lots of things to consider and I need to design these to be strong as they will live at an outdoor field and probably see some wear.

Also thank you eclecticdialect. I wanna try that game now.

I'll let you guys all know how the board goes!

There has to be enough TWB characters by now to make a full set

Kasi and jinx are all of the pawns

Doc and Cara king and queen on one side

Swampy and Sandy on the other

Bandit and his evil twin(forgot his name) are the bishops
Rodger and red are rooks
Pirta and jake as the knights

It will be the (some) sanity vs insanity chess set

Depending what I model, it will likely be zbrush or masterpiecevr. If I do things like guns or parts, SolidWorks will be way easier to make accurate replicas.
