This was an actual game between Barskij (2389) - Laptii (1925). It is black to move. How should black proceed?

Addition to my analysis below:

1...Nc1!!!, 2. Kh7 Nd3!, 3. Kh8 Ne5, 4. Kh7 (4. h7 Ng6#) c6!!!, 5. bxc6 Nxc6, 6. Kh8 Ne5!, 7. Kh7 b5, 8. Kh8 b4, 9. Kh7 b3, 10. Kh8 b2, 11. Kh7

Now I would like to try the pawn underpromotion to rook, bishop or knight below:

11...b1=B+! 12. Kh8 Bc2! (waiting move by forcing White h-pawn to move to h7) 13. h7 Ng6#

11...b1=R!!?, 12. Kh8 Rh1, 13. Kh7 Nd7, 14. Kh8 Rxh6#

11...b1=N!!! (LOL), 12. Kh8 Nd2, 13. Kh7 Ne4, 14. Kh8 Ng6+, 15. Kh7 Ng5#!
