Not entirely a normal fantasy thing, but a relative's birthday is coming up and one of the things he tends to do is go play chess at a park near where he lives. So, I'm assembling a custom set for him and kind of hit a dead end after figuring out most of the pieces.

I've gone with Reaper's Mouslings for everything so far and then hit the dead end of the rooks for it. Now all of the current ones I've gotten and started on are metal minis and I'd like the last ones to also be metal, but I can't find anything that kind of fits the whimsy feel of the mouselings and also kind of fits as a rook for a piece.

They're all currently set up for a 1" round base as well, which is something I'd like to keep for it.

Just not sure what would make the right look for them.

Check out Oathsworn & Dark Sword, perhaps you could use one of their mice atop a small stone plinth?

Following along Huscarle's train of thought possibly mounting the miniature atop a piece of terrain scaled for smaller figures. Bearing in mind you'll need four and considering price as a factor, a search yielded this among the results. They are scaled for 6mm but might suit the purpose.

@Yuno Hu
I only need 2 of them rather than 4, where he plays everyone brings their own set of pieces
