I had no problems printing the knights without supports - that is why I put the structure under the chin but I could try to put a bit more there. yes, the ears are probably a bit too delicate. I will try to find some time to do this, once I have don that I will update the files here.
When I do 3D Printing presentations, I show your chess set as an excellent example of things designed for 3D printing. I was able to print all pieces, except the knights, without supports. I'd like to ask if you'd redesign the knight, so it didn't need supports under its chin? Also, it's ears are very delicate, and I've already broken two ears. Could you make the ears a little thicker, or shorter, or less pointed, or something else to make the ears stronger?

This model is designed to be printed out on a 3D printer with a larger print area. The model is hires so if your printer can give more detail your chess set will benefit from that. You may need to resize and reposition the set on the build platform. Designed the horse head with support so that it would print on an extruder style printer. Of course you will need to print one set in one colour and another in a different colours. The board is not included.
I have updated the chess set - made the rook's crown thicker and the arms of the king and queen thicker to help with build. I made some of the subtle features more distinct so they show up better. I have also included the thing file format for Makerware users.
I have also added individual pieces so that you can print those out individually and make those any size you want.
