Look what I found! Ingenious eh? It looks like he used those cheap mass market "Pressman" unstable chessmen with some larger high quality plastic Reykjavik pieces. I love the chancellor but the archbishop seems less intuitively obvious to me.

The archbishop has the king's crown, which is making me think of B+K rather than B+N.

Just to be clear, none of those Gothic Chess images above have anything to do with my business.

The image below is what my pieces look like.
