How about this: instead knights, there are knghtriders, and minor pieces in
front of them are normal knight. But they can capture queens on first
moves... One may use ine of these three solutions:
board is 11x10;
opening position is changed, so they can capture only protected bishops;
third, and, i think, the best: all minor pieces are moved one square
forward.
