Thanks for your comment!

Yes, the Ninja Guard and Ninja Warrior are identical to elephant/war machine except for the jump over capturing mechanism and double capture.

Jean-Louis Cazaux also invented the excellent Toulousain Chess

The Gryphon is quite an interesting piece and perhaps even more so when it is vulnerable which is why I limited its moves.
The Anti_gryphon is also a limited form of the Aanca.

It might be useful to add more pieces to the current Piececlopedia

Gigachess was the first chess variant to use both the Elephant and the (War) Machine, called Ninja Guard and Ninja Warrior here. The Gryphon-Hippogriff page provides some historical background to pieces like the Stealth Gryphon. My Spotted Gryphon thread includes my Spotted Hippogriff, which was based on a piece invented by Peter Aronson.
