Chess sets come in many forms. I have seen sets consiting of all frogs, or all sheep, Star Wars characters or those from the Asterix comics. I experience the required detail as a bit distracting when you want to actually play with them, rather then just showcase them for ornamental purposes. For playing I prefer somewhat more abstracted pieces, such as Staunton style, like the wooden Superchess pieces.

I don't see much added value in adding images of pieces in a style not very suitable for play, that only exist virtually, so that no one could obtain them anyway.
