Your array is certaily full of interesting patterns of (1) elemental radial
linepieces, (2) elemental oblique leapers, (3) combined pieces, as shown
below. Having equal numbers of similar kinds of piece is also clever.  The
castling is slightly odd because only it can be done with only half the
Rooks. The main difficulty is trying to set up this game with eight
standard sets of various sizes. Balancing sufficiently distinguishable
different pieces against sufficiently indistinguishable similar pieces is
hard. The size is also unwieldy. Perhaps the best thing is to make
oriental-style pieces by marking 11 sets of Draughts with at least
unridged side.
