Bishop and knight are too weak. Bishop actually can be long-range, look at my comment here (here i called it 'unicorn'):
And knight also can be stronger if it also will be able to move first 1 diagonally, then 1 orthogonally (in addition to it's original move) - it will be able to leap in 6 directions. It's, by the way, colorbound, but to different coloring.
I think, original knight and bishop, as a subvariant, must be replaced with these pieces.
And am i right or not that rook can't retreat?
But variant looks very interestinng.
