my girlfriend just bought me a snap fit AT AT model kit.
The model itself is quite good considering there is no need
to paint or even glue it together!
Anyways back on topic, has anyone ever came across rules
for using these monsters in 40k? or would anyone mind making up some
that are fair and balanced. It currentley is armed with (in star wars verse
two heavy blasters and two blaster cannons) in 40k I think they could count
as twin linked lascannons and two autocannons.
Any ideas for armour values and such?

The At-At is a little out-of-scale for the 40K universe. It is essentially a Warlord Titan sized armoured transport, packing two turbolasers (on later variants) and two blaster cannon. For something as big as a Titan, it's actually under-armed, as the turbo-lasers are probably a little weaker than the Volcano cannon on a Warlord titan, and a Warlord titan carries upto 4 such weapons.
You could use Apocalypse rules and create it as a super-heavy walker, with an armoured capacity of say 20 Space-marine sized troops, and equipped with a twin-linked front-firing turbo-laser destructor (not quite a Volcano Cannon), and a pair of lascannon on AA mounts?
Of course then it has no anti-infantry weaponry, but I don't think that will be a major concern if you have troops on board.
The final alternative is to mount it on tracks (use an old tank kit or big wheels) and call it a BaneBlade!
It’s big, as it towers over a landraider!
I think it’s about 36cm ( 14.5 inches) and about 30cm long
( 12 inches ) and about 15 cm wide ( 6 inches ). In star wars verse it’s 44 meters tall.
Not sure how big a titan is but I’m sure they are bigger.
I don’t think I’m in the mood to chop it up as I rather like it with 4 legs.
I think something like this would be o.k,
AT AT (All Terrain Armored Transport)
Front armour Side armour Rear armour BS
14 14 14 4
Type: Walker / Transport.
Weapons: Twin linked Lascannons.
Two Autocannons (not twin linked)
Transport: 40 human sized troops, 20 powered armoured troops, 10 terminator armoured troops.

Ok, cool - do you know what scale it is - if it around 1:64 scale, then you have something that is approx 28 mm scale...
I think something along the lines of:
"Achilles" class titan Armoured Transport
Armour - F14/S14/R13 (it has weaker armour somewhere...and not even Titans are 14 rear)
3 structure points
Shield generators (2 shields)
Twin-linked Turb-laser destructor (same weapon as on the Thunderhawk)
Two autocannon on AA mounts (to reflect the fact that the AT-AT can at least have a pop at shooting down aircraft)
And I think AT-AT are approx 23 metres tall in most accepted descriptions (based on observations of scale in ROTJ and ES, which puts it firmly in the same height class (at approx 70 feet) as the Reaver and Warlord Battle Titans. Your model may be out of scale slightly, but at 14.5 inches, it's certainly in teh right size range (36 cm seems to imply a scale height of around 77' in 28 mm scale which is what Warhammer 40K is, assuming 6' = 28mm).

I like kithre's stats idea.
Suggestion for transport capacity:
Ogyrns and Terminators count as 2 models.
Since AT-AT's are supposed to be able to transport AT-ST's, the vehicle may carry a single Sentinel squadron, with each Sentinel counting as 5 models.
Or instead of Sentinels, it may carry up to 2 Dreadnoughts, with each counting as 10 models.
AT-AT's also can hold speeder bikes, so let's say that it may carry a single SM bike squadron. This may be of any of the 3 types. Bikes and Scout Bikes count as 3 models, and Attack Bikes count as 4.
Instead of a Bike squadron, it may carry a single IG Rough Rider squadron, with each model taking up 2 slots.
The Infantry, Ogyrn/Terminator, Dreadnought, and Bike capacity are based off of GW and FW rules. The Sentinels' and Rough Riders' were just numbers that seemed reasonable to me.
There is no such thing as a plea for innocence in my court. A plea for innocence is guilty of wasting my time. Guilty.

Of course - I missed the troop transport capacity...
How are you proposing at "imperialising" the behemoth? I reckon cruved armour plates around the lower leg sections, and open panels coupled with baroque detailing. Probably also replace the barells on the weapons - if you have a couple of spare PRedator turrents, or Razorback turrets, you can use the weapons from these to augment the weapons load-out?
