I am unconvinced by the independent and widow: The independent seems a bit strong, and certainly if one were to play a game with several more kinds of ultima-style piece it would easily dominate the game (although it could be nerfed by capturing only as enemy pieces on the board currently unable to capture it, making it probably a good idea to trade it off in the midgame...), while the widow appears to be nothing more than a weakened immobiliser, limiting movement but adding the option (though in this case only under certain circumstances) to self-destruct. The other pieces seem interesting though; I wonder how they would work with normal ultima (and of course ultima variant) pieces...
