As you can see the knight has a lot of polygons. It has the most polygons of all my pieces.

In case you want to make a chess set, I'll give you a few tips:
- Don't make anything completely black, nothing in creation is pure black - make a very dark grey
- When modeling use a reference image - it helps a lot(I know from experience)
- Use good lighting - this is good advice for any render, so have a lot of light in your scene
