To answer myself, the setup being used is RNBMQKABNR.

On another related subject, I have another idea for a Capa variant bouncing through my head: The 'Marshall' moves as rook + king (promoted Shogi rook); The 'Archbishop' moves as bishop + king (promoted shogi bishop); and the 'Queen' moves as king + knight ('Crowned Knight' in royal court chess). This weakening of the pieces should make the game more strategic and less tactical.
