There is a problem with the camels. These pieces are colourbound, and your array puts them all on the same colour. You could swap them with another piece on one side of the king only, giving an asymmetric array, or use a standard board and have an extra piece between the king and one of the bison. Other leapers include Wildebeest (Knight+Camel), Zebra (2:3), and Giraffe (1:4).
