    Heres something Seattle GW bunker did a while ago. I remember
    it was quite fun.

    Set Up:

    2x2 Table, Divided up in fractions of a 1 foot lowered circle. 8 sections
    in the corners, Each player has a home base on located on the outside of
    the circle.

    2D6 Randomly generated asteroids, you can throw, push and move around
    with scatter dice. STR 8 Hit. 1D6 And one Scatter dice is used to determine
    direction of asteroid being pushed. Models must make base contact to be considered thrown.

    Optional: A Token may be placed in the middle of the arena for the purposes
    of activating and de-activating a player. The player who reaches the token may
    decide to whom to de-activate. Another player must activate the de-activate player.

    RULES:

    1 Dreadnaught from; Space Marines, Chaos, Eldar (Walkers) ,
    I.G. Sentinel Squad, or Tau Crisis/Broadside Squad is chosen. I dunno
    if Dark Eldar have any, but Necrons may use destroyers as a squad.
    Tyranids may use 1 carnifex or a Tyrant guard squad. Ork Cans and
    Talos dreadnaughts may also be selected.

    Follow codex for upgrades. Alliances may be made/broken.

    TURNS:

    Players roll off to see who goes first, 2d6 are used, if similiar rolls are made
    take the two, or however many players that rolled and roll off, Repeat process
    untill turns are assigned.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    OK now that mumbo jumbo is done, any contestants?

    Dark Eldar should be allowed the Talos.

    And I don't see why an ork dreadnaught wouldn't be allowed, it is a dreadnaught, more so than destroyers or a senitinel squadron.

    My local hobby store ran this same event once and, surprisingly, one of the most effective models was the Tyranid Carnifex. My friend brought one and won several of his four way matches with it.

    I won the tournament overall with three imperial guard sentinels loaded up with lascannons and HK missiles. Its amazing what an HK missile can do for you in a dreadnought arena battle.

    Yeah I'll say, I have a HK missile on my B.A. Dreadnaught
    Plamsa Gun and a storm bolter with a power fist, it was pretty
    effective

    You forgot the Penitent Engines for the Witch Hunters.
    Most important rule when facing any army with the Imperials is that you have to play like you have nothing to lose. Go big, or go home. Play like you have a pair. You cannot fight the enemy with subtlety or else you will get demolished.
