GI Joe Chess Board

Postby chad_ghost on Sat Jul 28, 2012 7:57 pm

I've been designing a Joe chess board for, well, years now. It's finally getting close to completion. I would like your critiques of the board image.

Any suggestions?

Love it! The Cobra Civil War (Marvel of course) is my favorite Joe story. I might suggest since the board is of Cobra Island and shows the battle routes, that you might replace say, Scrap Iron, with Serpentor as he was a major player in the war.

I'm making the pieces, and I was very specific in choosing characters. I'm only using figures up until 1984, which is why those characters were chosen. The timeline of the Cobra Civil War is off, but the map was too cool not to use. Matt redrew it from a scan of the Marvel issue.
