A slightly lighter (is it?) position seems to work too:
Kg7, pp. a7, b7 , c7 / Kb3, Qd6, Sa8, BTb8 (4+4)
Same solution (of course).

Qd6 can be a rook too. I thought I had tried something like that, but apparently not. Thanks for the major improvement!

Sure, it’s always fun toying with a position like this… (Ha ha, I also just noticed that a bRd6 works just as well.)
