Start Workflows for Multiple Content Types on Same List

I am trying to figure out if it is possible to start multiple workflows on the same list from different start forms/content types. Right now I have a list where all projects start from the same start form, and all other possible workflows branch out from there. However, I was hoping to be able to start a workflow from a different start form on the same list.

 

The existing workflows track regular projects from start to finish. We've discovered a need to have a calendar that tracks future terminations of projects, so I set up a workflow for that purpose. I would like to be able to start this workflow from a button on the main page of the list rather than using the existing start form - the termination workflow start form is a much shorter form to fill out than the existing start form. I set up separate content types for this, but it seems that the start form for a new project can only be associated with the Default Content Type.

 

Is this an option at all? Or am I stuck starting this termination workflow manually whenever it needs to be used?
