This is a clever idea, very appealing in its simplicity, and I think I've got the applet working. I hope I did it right. I understand that deploying the corps captures opposing units and skips friendly units. I thought that deploying the corps should not capture the enemy king; otherwise, most situations with the Sentinel two squares away from the enemy king would give check, perhaps even if the Sentinel is pinned.
