Here's a little something that just inspired me:
Horus Heresy Renactment: The Battle at The Imperial Palace
Story: Read the Siege of the Emperor's Palace for the story.
The Forces of Order(6 Players):
2000pts of Blood Angels
2000pts of Imperial Fists
2000pts of Imperial Guardsmen(any army will suffice)
Another 2000pts of Imperial Guardsmen(any army will suffice)
One pack of 3 Warhound Titans
One squadron of Super Heavy Tanks
Forces of Chaos(6 Players):
1500pts of Black Legionnaires(a Greater Daemon AND a Daemon Prince must be present)
1500pts of World Eaters(Bloodthirster and Kharn must be present, Angron also must be present but do not count as a choice, points still count however)
1000pts of Iron Warriors(cannot use Basilisk, Vindicator, or Obliterators. Must have 4 Heavy Support, Dreadnoughts are Elites)
1000pts of Death Guard(Typhus may be present, Great Unclean One must be present)
1000pts of Thousand Sons(Ahriman may be present, Lord of Change Must be present)
2000pts of Lost and the Damned(must be led by a Greater Daemon)
2 Packs of Chaos Warhound Titans
Restricted Troops(may not be used):
Forces of Order:
-Space Marine Land Speeder
-Space Marine Vindicator
-Land Raider Crusader
-Storm Bolters(treat them as Combi Bolters, same cost however).
Forces of Chaos:
-Space Marine Vindicator
Special Characters(note that their costs count towards their army's point limit. These characters ,must be present):
Sangunius: Treat him as Commander Dante.
Dorn: Treat him as Captain Lysander. He is fearless.
Angron: Treat him as a Bloodthirster with a Berserker Glaive, confering all the bonuses, test for mastery as normal. His cost is equal to the cost of the Bloodthirster combined with the cost of the Berserker Glaive.
Set Up & Deployment:
Set up a large palace covering 35% of a 8' by 8' table. The Palace must be surrouned by a semi-circle wall, which will enclose the palace. Set up Urban Terrain outside of the wall.
The Forces of Order must deploy either inside the wall or within 12" of the wall. Forces of Chaos must deploy outside 2' of the Forces of Order. The Forces of Chaos deploys after the Forces of Order. Daemons can be summoned or set up as per normally(they have been summoned prior to battle). Greater Daemons do not need Daemonhosts if set up as normal.
Objective: the Forces of Chaos are to smash through the defences. They have to have at least one Scoring unit from each army(other than the titans) to reach the center of the palace. The Forces of Order must prevent the Forces of Chaos from accomplishing the above for up to 8 turns. Of course you can simply wipe out the opposition.
Line of retreat:
Forces of Order simply retreat towards the center of the palace. They cannot run off the board as there is no where else to run!
Forces of Chaos may always regroup and can come back even if they are chased off the board, coming back as if entering from reserves(this represents another squad taking their place).
So here's my reenactment. There are still many bugs to iron out so be brutal with the critizism!
