Can you please detail your question ? I'm not sure to understand well...

The pieces are used as usual Shogi(Japanese Chess) Pieces, I designed myself: 
   Pawn, kNight, Bishop, Rook, King, 
   and Gold, Silver, Lance.
The first 5 pieces have quite the same shape as standard chessmen, and Gold is like a Queen.
Silver(with a silver moon on its top) and Lance(like a cannon) are totally new shapes.
Shogi players recognize instantly all such 3D pieces without any notice, and chess-players are also discovering Shogi easier (with no need to learn any Japanese Kanji)...
