My responses are too numerous and require explanation so I'm not voting:
1. Need to speed up animations (though they are quite good)
2. Need scrolling. Suggest two finger to pan and double finger double tap to centre.
3. Redo button? Please put it somewhere more accessible.
4. Restart button would also be nice.
That's all my overall responses, now moving on the the post topic:
1. Bishop design should be swapped. The white side using the female design and black (red in this game) side using the male with the hammer. Reason being game stereotypes where the good (white) side is usually the 'paladin' and the bad (red) side uses brute force, hence the hammer will be more appropriate.
2. I don't like the rook design. Can't suggest alternatives at this stage (will come up with some later).
3. Some battle animations could adopt 'move then attack' animations. Eg. queen - teleport near opponent, attack and take over square. Will suggest more examples later.

paladins use hammers in every game I've played.
