Here's an alternate setup, similar to TenCubed Chess. The Archbishop (e1) defends the Knight (c2) which protects a Pawn (a3) and a Rook (a1). After the Knight has moved, the Archbishop may take its place on (c2). The Chancellor has much the same story. Note that the Queens are now on their own colors. My personal preference is placing the Rooks on the second rank and something exotic - like Cannons - in the corners. With your Rooks in the corners, you are free to try new pieces on (b2) and (i2). Silver Generals would provide a rock solid defence of the Pawns - perhaps too solid.

[EDIT] This arrangement of four Rooks was actually used in Colossus - Charles Daniel (2010).
