Hey, John. I would actually display the set with the warder-rook and the little berserker pawns, and might even try to play a game with it. 

The 2 gentlemen are a couple of our site artists. Gary makes chesspieces from Sculpy, a clay-like sculpting material, as well as more common materials; and James does statues as well as some excellent artwork. They've both added some fine pieces to the site's piece sets.
