before my seeing comments: My solution [arrived to through the 32-pixel, B&W, restartable-moving-pieces setting and submitted in a style the honorable problemist was imitating on 2018-11-09 08:29:17]: to mate with queen after black-pawn move [or to double-check\west rook mate], white's qhfour starts

The key dismantles the BQ-battery, sacrifices the wQ and the wB and threatens 2. Qxe4#. If Black takes or pins the wQ or 1.. Kd5 the mates from the set follow using the NR-battery 2. Na3#, Nbc7#, Nc3#. Finally on 1.. KxB 2. Nd4#, another battery mate. A good chess puzzle but also ambitious in showing the task of four distinct mates all by the same battery.
