In my opinion this is the worst of all the Chess sets. Other Chess sets are partly glued as well, but in this case every single minifig was glued. And since glueing a thousand figs for ... (let me reckon)... a lot of copies of this set must be quite a piecework, the actual craftmansship was poorly executed. Helmets are crooked (and you can't correct that), horns in the helmets are weird adjusted (can't correct that) and I spotted fingerprints in the dryed glue. So at least I'm able to nail the culprits!
Also the variation of minifigs you get with this set is not too exciting. Only three kinds of torsos are a bit boring. And since they are all glued you can't even replace legs and heads for variation. And I'd have liked blonde hair for the Viking queens, rather than the usual grey hair.
The best parts in this set are the unique shields.

I know you don't think much of the well used term army builder but that is what I think chess is; two opposing armies.
For me the other two chess sets contain ether to many jelly bean knights or skeleton knights to reflect armies I am interested in playing with.
For me this consideration outweighs all others.
