Skeptic schism chess board pieces

Has anyone seen politically based chess board pieces like this? --

I think it would be cool to have a skeptic schism based chess board too. Here are some ideas:

FTB/Skepchick/A+:
Pawns: Mainly FTB commentariat stereotypes, judging from photos: overweight, neckbeards, horn rimmed glasses, etc...
King: PZ Myers
Queen: Rebecca Watson
Knight1: Greg Laden
Knight2: Lousy Canuck
Bishop1: Stef Svan
Bishop2: Ophelia Benson
Rook1: Nerd of Redhead (you got to have a robot like piece, just for fun)
Rook2: Karen Stollznow

Slymepit/Skeptics:
Pawns: A bunch of guys in fedoras and women in bikinis
King: Richard Dawkins
Queen: Abbie Smith
Knight1: Justin Vacula
Knight2: Thunderf00t
Bishop1: Ellen Beth Wachs
Bishop2: Paula Kirby
Rook1: Michael Shermer
Rook2: Ben Radford

I changed my mind about Rook1. It should be Mykeru instead! A cow-skull headed chess piece would be pretty cool too.

Hmmm, in keeping with chess piece appearances, perhaps the Rooks should be structures instead:

FTB/Skepchick/A+: Elevator car

Slymepit/Skeptics: ??? Not sure on this one. Any ideas?

Mykeru and Nerd of Redhead should still be among the pieces: either bishops or knights.

FTB/Skepchick would have to be all pawns - can't have any privileged pieces, you know.

You've got it ALL wrong. They've clearly got a power structure over there.
Being blind to privilege is a privilege only men can have, .'. only the MALES can be pawns.
Unless they identify as "Other" on their US Census forms.

FTB should be black, but they'll reverse the knights for that exact reason. It'll keep chess interesting.
