The Diablo Chess Set features 32 custom sculpted pieces, molded in heavy weight polystone and metal, and detail painted for a set that's truly a work of art.
The set is the culmination of hundreds and hundreds of hours of illustration, sculpting, and engineering, and is packaged in a box befitting a battle between heaven and hell. (Board not included)
Detail is packed into every single crevice of the character sculpts, from the scales, horns, jagged teeth, bones and tentacles on the demon side, to the delicate wings and smooth symmetrical lines on the angel pieces. This is a set that reveals itself to the collector little by little over time.
Debuting at BlizzCon 2014, the set will also be available on Blizzard Gear.
