Fixed points for variant pieces makes little sense. There is no possibility getting relative values correct. This system is good reference for making pieces, but only way to get fair game is auction method. Make enough pieces, do not assign values, give each player 1000 credits, randomly put pieces up for auction one after other. Bidding strategy becomes part of game.
