Well, I have always had a penchant for three kinds of chess variants:

Different armies/ Asymetric play: 
Fantasy Grand Chess.  
I actually sometimes create totally messed-up armies that are too unstadard to be Betzian "different armies".

Odd pieces: 
Ganymede Chess and relatives/Centennial Chess/Microorganism Chess.  
Again, I love making CVs with these.

Variants with the same pieces and with epic changes: 
2000 A.D./
European Chess.  
Another area of Chesspertise.  Ha ha ha.
