George Duke's interest in this variant has drawn my attention to it again.

He is quite right that my piece cataloguing has moved on considerably since my last comments, and I now have variants using the pieces mentioned. The Guru and Sadhu are indeed described in Man and Beast 03: From Ungulates Outward, and the Guru is used in one army each on pages 2 and 6 of my Armies of Faith series. The Sahib, Memsahib, and Nabob are described in Man and Beast 11: Long-nosed Generals, and are demotees on page 5 of Armies of Faith.

I notice that Luiz Carlos Campos has yet to clarify the Camel/Giraffe ambiguity - or correct his Brahmin description.
