At 29 pages currently, I am still refining the model.  Accordingly, I
have recently started calculating material values for chess variants
(other than my own) having fairly well-established (hopefully),
published calculations or estimates of their relative piece values.
I am having difficulty finding suitable games for comparison.
Thusfar, I have made calculations for only 5 games with somewhat
satisfactory results.  I need more test cases. Any recommendations would
be appreciated.
