I bought tons of those Micromachines too.  The only
thing to look out for is that the battle pack figures
are roughly 25 mm while the "squad" packs are about
15-20 mm. It doesn't look too bad when you're using
the mounted figs, like the Dewbacks, but the desert
stormtrooper stands a good head and shoulders taller
than the regular stormtrooperers.

We played a scenario last weekend with a platoon of
stormtroopers, one squad mounted on Dewbacks,
attacking a rebel base. The Imps were supported by
naval troops. The Rebels had about two platoons of
infantry and a squad on scout bikes.

We used an Imp shuttle as a landing craft for two
squads of naval troops and had an AT-AT on table.

But you're right about modelling the Rebs vs. the
AT-AT. In the movie, there was nothing the Rebs had
that could penetrate its armor. That kind of puts a
damper on having it on the table. 

In our sceanrio, the Imps wanted to knock out shield
generators while the Rebs were just trying to hold out
until the fleet arrived. 

I like your scenario ideas ... we were talking about
doing a multi-sided battle as well. 

My initial conversion ideas focus on the "blaster"
from the movie. It was essentially a pistol. We played
it with this profile: FP 3, impact d8, first range
band only. Nearly all the weapons we used had impact
d8. For the rifle we used: FP2, impact d8.

We did designate some figs as heavy blasters and
called them FP d8, impact d8*

For the scout bikes I used the mounted troop rules at
Brian's Stargrunt II Page.

For the Dewback troops, we decided they were the
"Power Armor" on the table. They caused terror and
doubled their rolls in close combat.

The game was tons of fun and the table looked awesome.

I hope this post isn't *too* scattered. I just walked
in the office and tried to organize a few thoughts.
