I was thinking of using minis as chess pieces, just for fun, until i get a rule book or something. The whites are going to be Ultramarines. Tactical squad as pawns, devastators as rooks, assault squad as knights, SM commander/Marneus Calgar as king, and maybe a cannoness or something as a queen. I don't know about the bishops, though. Little help?
Also, i need help with the black side. I've been thinking of chaos, but theres not enough variety for it. Maybe tyranids would work, but the unique units are too big to fit in the little squares. So I will want a Tau force. Firewarriors for pawns, battlesuits as knights. Suggestions for others?
Get some Orks or Dark Eldars for the black side...it's gonna be fun having a "40k Chess game"...
Already been done. My friend and i, after losing a significant number of our chess pieces (damn Jaegermeister...) eventually used 40k minis for our chess pieces, my chaos vs. his DE. It was cool, and a welcome change from the lame-looking plastic pieces.
If Knowledge is Power, then Genius is Tyranny.
Imperial preachers for bishops...
I've done it as well, but we used dwarves vs. high elves. It works and it's fun
I kill two dwarves in the morning, I kill two dwarves at night. I kill two dwarves in the afternoon, and then I feel allright. I kill two dwarves in time of peace, and two in time of war. I kill two dwarves before I kill two dwarves, and then I kill two more.

Anybody have specific unit ideas for each side on a SPACE MARINE army? ANd I mean for the bishops that is.
ANd i was thinking of getting the chaos as enemies, but as i said i couldn't figure it out what units for each position. Little help?
Well hell you said canonness for queen so use DA for a queen..those robes look suspiciously like dresses.... <_<
My and my mate just use forces of order / disorder for the white / black sides. We have:
Pawns - Imperial Guard
Knights - Grey Knights
Rooks - Space Marines
Bishops - Preachers
King - Commisar Yarik
Queen - A sister of battle
Pawns - Chaos Cultists
Knights - Chaos Space Marines
Rooks - Necron Immortal
Bishops - Orks (Dont ask)
King - Abbaddon
Queen - Lelith Hesperax
