These are very similar to the HOS Collector and Marshall plastic pieces, but much cheaper. On close inspection and in comparison to the above sets, these are of almost the same quality and weight, and therefore represent fantastic value for money. Very nice pieces indeed, especially at this price,
Much nicer when seeing it in real than on the pictures. Pretty much exact copy of the HoS Marshall series of some time ago (still seeing them here in the outlet section). Good heavy weighted. Chess pieces in general tend to get expensive, but here I feel it's money well spent. Can very much recommend.
