A small correction to my previous comment. A 'Carrera-like' array would not have all the compounds in the middle ranks. Carrera was the first man to introduce a variant with all three compounds of standard elementals, but I had in mind later versions with (to my æsthetics) better arrays. These include Bird's Chess and the first two variants shown on the Capablanca's Chess page.
