JSmith_DumDumDumDumDum , hope it turned out okay for you.

captaindrewi, haha, I don't think you tried hard enough. I've seen your great work.

Here's my file .... a few 5 sided polygons are not a problem on this type of model, but are neatly disposed of if necessary.

Thanks for the look of your file CrashDrive.I thought I would have to subdivide the meshes I created to achieve the smooth rendered look but realise now there is no need...errm i could have remained befuddled for quite sometime without your help.  :-[
what next?the knight :-\

I wish I only knew what was causing the "concave" problem on my end. It seems that the example that CapatainDrew posted has a slightly concave slant where he placed the slit.
I guess something's we'll just never know. (right away)  ;D

captaindrewi, ya it would be a tough one subdividing that without a few wrinkles.

JSmith_DumDumDumDumDum,  You're still having issues I see. It seems like everything has a concave error.
What example are you referring that has a "slightly concave slant"?

The bishops in CaptainDrew's exhibit. haha  ;D

But, actually, I simply took your Kniving suggestion, and it was sufficient in doing the job: I drew the cutmarks, highlighted all  the squares within in and then applied negative extrusion to those squares to create an inward dent. It was a bit funky, but interesting and creative-looking. I'm simply merely curious as to what this concave problem. was. It was just the bishop head. A lot of other things were able to boolean-combine.

The chess pieces look great. Next time if you have a problem like the concave error thing,
you can always post your file and someone will probably find the answer.

Didn't know this thread was still receiving replies. haha Thanks, CrashDrive. I will keep that in mind.

Of course, now that my issue with negative space is done, there's now a new issue with material appearance. Time for a new thread!  :)
