Knightriders can replace rooks. Unicorn or marshal can replace queen. Two pairs of bishops or two pairs of knights can replace pair of bishops and pair of knights. Total 12 armies, including standart. Plus, Betza statet that berolina pawns have aproximately same chances as standart pawns, 24 armies with pieces with not so complicated movement rules.
