Creating game scenarios from movies
So, a friend and I are looking into creating some game scenarios from movies, using 40K armies, for casual fun. At the moment we're going to start with the Battle of Hoth with predetermined units such as Reaver Titans for Imperial Walkers and Warhound Titans as Scout Walkers. The FW Tarantula weapons platforms will see use as the Rebel Laser turrets while Stormtalons will do the job of Snowspeeders. Everything is WYSIWYG and we aren't creating special weapons for anything to try and mirror Hoth to an exact scale. Obviously, we aren't conforming to the FoC for this.
Our first match up is Chaos vs Space Marines with myself facing 3 Reavers and 2 Warhounds along with Chaos Warbands. I'm throwing 4 Stormtalons and my entire Space Marine army at this barring the use of anything with a Rhino Chassis, the Rebels didn't have tank type vehicles beyond the snowspeeders and neither will I. Sounds like a list cause, but, that's kind of the point :-)
Anyway, thoughts on this and recommendations for other film battles to play around with would be greatly appreciated
