The pieces decsribed in the previous comment have not, as far as I know, been used in a game, but a description has already been in place for some years in my piece article Man and Beast 06: The Heavy Brigade. This is the definition of 'beatified' versions of the standard linepieces, (as opposed to 'canonised' for the more familiar other way round).
