So I was planning to make this very unique chess board with a very complex and attractive visual peons. I have chosen to make them in 3D. The problem I having is that I still need to choose the theme. I am struggling to choose between, Soldiers in a battlefield, Fantasy theme with wizards and trolls and what not, or a Rugby team like @robbijg said.

I am still thinking about it, and as soon as I get more concept done, I will show it. In the meantime, here is my first concept. Just some Blocking views.

I kind of like this already as if it was a finished game. I might use this board to make a real game. Maybe.
