@rysnt11 add face to your model. Chess figures get a lot of mystery if you add kinda of head/face into it. This happens too in a lot of games/instances concetrated around chess.

Also, manipulate with colors, it's plain-magma now.

quick model up. not uvwrapped, driver not done and weapon not done. 1600 tris without clean-up.

Damn model-making speedrun.

EDIT:
Looks like my final Entry. The aparration of the white knight itself.
Fast and tactical, also flexible and smart movement like a boss knight piece.

Even a month before the end of the competition. During this time, you could make a more interesting concept, and improve visual disign of your models....

PS: I just don't understand why all so hurry.I for example, already thinking on a new concept, as old now does not meet my needs ....

I'm busy with school from next week

we're fucked

we're doomed
I wondered why Tarrasque's avatar reminds me of my model.
 
-Peper-, I don't get how he is a white knight when he is a black dragon :/
It fits a white horse very much, even being a black dragon

edit: checked the model further.. it has a skull on the shoulder pad, what can pull it towards being black, but still whiteness absolutely prevail, it has shiny armor, shiny helmet, a white armored horse, and sparkles everywhere
the skull can be faced as the eccentric aspect of a dragon knight, he carries trophy of his deeds, or whatever.

Yayz.
Yeah, you were right about the skull part. Like Predator who keeps the skull of his prey as a trophy.
Oh and the sparkle, it is meant to be a lightning (thunder horse ftw). As in swift and flexible.
One thing that ruined the model : he has wings. Why would he ride a horse?

Same reason a dreadlord always walks?

Love all the fantastic work so far everyone.
 
"5 points for creativity"

well if everyone makes a generic rook, that look all pretty much the same, then i would presume that they would get less points from the judges for creativity. i hope this would be incentive enough for people to start changing their design

or come up with their own

PS: that last part was like directed at one person

Better use UndeadArthas.blp for the left half of his face. Otherwise it's creative, but then who's that? White or black king?

Actually did that at the beginning, but then I thought: Why does the black and dark side always has to be evil/demonic/undead? So I decided to make him clearly dark/black, but not necessarily evil.
That's the problem. The main idea was to create a Whiteblack King :/

I'm ok with it, your model can be the white/black king duality, and, now let's think of a situation:

In a chess game sideview, in which every piece faces the other side of the chessboard, you have a nice set of two kings in one model.
