I also love the classic match ups they seem to be the funnest to play.

Space marines vs Chaos
Orks vs Orks
Orks vs Guard
Necrons vs Eldar
Dark Eldar vs Eldar
Space Wolves vs Dark Angels

Although NIds vs. Nids would be interesting to see.

God, gives children to people so that death won't seem so disappointing.

Gotta repeat the opinion given above and go with Thousand Sons vs Space Wolves.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

ahhhhhh...sounds like so much fun, just to think of greater daemons battleing out with hive tyrants and carnifexs.

Guard Vs. Guard

I know it sounds a little generic, but could you imagine the carnage?

BA vs. Khorne.... Furious Charge for all. Can you say bloodbath?

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

Damn nature, You Scary!!!

Well my number one would have to be Guard v's Tyranids, just for the Starship Ttroopers style connection, thanks to the film, you can imagine the horror the Guard would go through fighting that mass of scything talons and ripping jaws, nasty.

Others up there include,
Thousand Sons v's Space Wolves, as already noted because due to the history thats cool, same goes with any of the Istaan V survivors up against the Black Legion etc
Eldar v's Dark Eldar is cool, as all the models look pretty, plus theres a lot of hatred there. (Although I would say rain has stopped play on this one atm until the new Jes figs appear.)
Dark Angels v's a Fallen army would be cool.
Scythes of the Emperor v's Hive fleet Kraken would also rank highly in my book.

I'm sure there would be others, but these above stick out atm.

Come and join us by the fire, to chat about the games that matter to you at the Roleplay Games Forum

DA vs Fallen, preferably set on Caliban. Use the rules for orbital strikes from the first Black Reach scenario (WD345).

Three things matter in marksmanship - location, location, location.
