is rather striking, and I would love to have won it, but it got too costly for my requirements.



Has anyone built a DragonChess set of their own and/or commissioned one?  What are the challenges?  Costs?  etc.



Thanks!

I started, in one of the dragons not long after it appears in #100 there is one that suggests what minitures to use for the pieces, I ordered most of those specicially from the manafacturer.. and that were it finished...

gro,

my wife is a stained-glass artist, and i'm sure she could whip one of those off for you in no time.  i can't speak for her, but i'm almost certain she'd do it for less than the auction you posted.  let me know if you want me to pursue it.

Ooooh, that's very contvenient:  I may have two commisions for her, though probably not in the immediate near-term.  In addition to a DC board (which would definitely not be worked on this year), I need a stained glass window built for my folks' shore house.  I'll see if I can find my old specs for the window size.  Ideally, the window would be a Christmas present, though I don't know if that timing will work out either on my end (we may have to wait 'til later, given our recent house purchase).



In any event, if your wife's willing to chat about what I have in mind, either over the phone or by email, I'd be happy to provide some general info on the window sometime (I'll still need to try to find the specs first, or to remeasure the window I guess).  Thoughts?
