I was already afraid that my positions were to simple for you :) Except for
the one with all the pawns on the 7th row. I'll look further if I can find
something, but see that the others have already given you some positions.

This one is at most a mate in 8:

1... Bdxb5 2. Nxe4 Bxe4 3. Qxd4 Bxe2+ 4. Rgxe2 Bxe2+ 5. Rxe2 Rc1+ 6. Bxc1 Rxc1+
7. Qd1 Rxd1+ 8. Re1 Rxe1x
