Nice variant indeed, but still you are obscure in the rules. You don't
explain what happens to a piece in case it should be repelled because of
the opposite charge and it is blocked by another piece. Let me modify your
example: 
   8 . . . b . . . .       . . . b . . . .
   7 . . . . . . . .       . . . . . . . .
   6 . . . K . . . .  Qd5  . . . K . . . .
   5 . q R . . r P .   =>  ? ? ? Q r . P .
   4 . . . Q . . . .       . . . b . . . .
   3 . . . . . . . .       . . . . . . . .
   2 . . . b . . . .       . . . . . . . .
   1 . . . . . . . .       . . . . . . . .
     a b c d e f g h       a b c d e f g h

What happens in that case ? cheers Thomas.
