Hi Jeffrey and thank you for your comments!

I'll answer your questions here and then clarify in the rules.  The Mimics are all independant of each other - only the capturing Mimic changes after it captures, the other one does not, nor the Mimics in the other army.  The transformation is immediate after that capture, so it ends the turn transformed.

For example, if each side has 2 Mimic Kings and black uses one to capture a Knight, then White still has 2 Mimic Kings and black has 1 Mimic King and 1 Mimic Knight.  These transformations are mandatory.

I hope you enjoy the game and if you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
