I figure tyranids would break down the most easily, with;
Hive Tyrant King
Tyrant Guard rooks, (especially appropriate when castling)
hormagaunts and termagaunts as pawns
I suppose with necrons it would be
Necron Lord as king
Nightbringer as queen
Immortals as bishops
wraiths as knights
tomb spiders as rooks
warriors as pawns
Space marines might be:
Force Commander or Azrael as king
The living saint as queen
Chaplains as bishops
Assault marines with jump packs as knights
Terminators as rooks
Space marines as Pawns
I can't think of any other armies that would fit easily
Archon as king
Archite as queen (or lelith)
Reaver Jetbikes would be knights
Talos for a rook
Haemonculi for bishops
Warriors for pawns

A Promise to a dead man means nothing.
Tact is for people who give a damn. I'm not one of those people.
this discussion is pointless to me, but. . . what the hell. Chess is nothing compared to 40k in the first place, so tell me what's the point of making this thread?
"And whoever wants to be a creator in good and evil, must first be an annihilator and break values. Thus the highest evil belongs to the greatest goodness: but this is--being creative."
~ Friedrich Nietzsche ~
The queen is in game-terms more dangerous than the king, so for an Eldar army for example, the Avatar should be the queen and the farseer king.
And vice versa.

Me and one of my friends have been making one for quiet some time now and here is what we chose for pieces
Tactical squads for pawns
force comander for king
sister of battle for queen
assualt squad guy for knight
chaplin for bishop ( both religous guys )
and for knights Termies or Rocket guys.
And we were just going to paint one as white scars and one as templars. But we came up with this idea nearly 9 months ago, we still dont have a finished product
