No.145 – hs#3* by Julia Vysotska – My lovely Chameleons again, but this time with Anti-Andernach condition. (JV)
Chameleon: On completing a move, a Chameleon (from classical standard type) changes into another piece, in the sequence Q-S-B-R-Q… Promotion may be to a chameleon at any stage in the cycle.
Anti-Andernach Chess: a unit (not King) changes color after its moves unless that move is a capture. (Or: a unit (King excluded) changes color on completion of a non-capturing move.)

Setplay: 1…Sf5xe3 2.cBg1xe3=cR + Ke4-f4 3.cRe3xd3=cQ + Rh1xc1 #
Real-play: 1.cBd7xb5=cR Rd3xe3 2.cQc1xe3=cS Ke4-d4 3.cSe3xf5=cB + Rh1xg1 #
The theme is realized by 3 chameleons in AntiAndernach condition:
one of them guards King’s squares, two others create white reciprocal batteries cS/cB and cR/cQ with captures of the rear battery-pieces on the mating move.
Reciprocal sacrifices of the black R/S; two reciprocal captures on e3. Model mates. (Author)
