Why not just make the compound pieces you want as separate images?

I could do that, though part of the point of some of the images is to minimize having to do that no matter how many different ideas come up. I mentioned earlier having some outliers to add much later (like Anteater, Bharal, and Inquisitor) along with some that are mainly used in Shogi (dog, monkey, etc.), but on the whole these rely somewhat on fen2's ability to compound to make these rarer pieces.

The Spy arguably does deserve an image of its own; for now, I'll start getting some ready for this game and the others I'm trying to get loaded (including full Camel and Zebra QBRM sets, or at least some images usable for such).
