This chess set has been a long running project of mine, I've been waiting to print all of the pieces before uploading it.
Each side of the chess set should have one pawn of each type, see this page for the correct positioning of the different Pawns (or don't).
The Bishops are Elephants, because apparently this was common in medieval versions of chess. Two Bishop files are supplied, one of them has thicker tusks, as I found this made it easier to print in ABS.
There's no overarching theme to the set, other than the consistency that comes from being designed by a single person, using a single tool (Blender)
The King and Queen both have weapons that are printed separately and must be glued to the hands of the pieces after printing.
On an FDM printer, the knight is best printed in two halves (provided) and then glued together.
