Being a major fan of chess, I couldn't skip this one over.

One thing that sticks out to me, why does the length of the pike bind her back? If she's holding it she shouldn't need to be straight-backed to do so comfortably, it should be relatively easy for her to hold in nearly any position, especially if she isn't pointing it straight out. Most chess boards I've seen that are custom made don't have their pawns holding a pike either, they either hold two short swords, one short sword or a sword and shield, so I would think of either changing this or having a reason for the pawns to hold pikes (because they attack diagonally, not dead ahead, this might be hard to explain away). Just my two cents for this first little snippet, I liked it though! Especially the reference to a queens side pawn, being as it's generally a useless piece.
