I remember seeing chess sets that can accommodate Doom the Board Game Marines. So why not place Marines on the one side of chessboard opposite the white/black pieces, give them the default weapons and let them 'kill' chess pieces. How? Well treat a piece as having 1 armour and as many wounds as it is worth in points. Marines attack as if they were attacking Doom invaders. Chess pieces move as per chess rules and can capture Marines, instantly killing them. Note that Marines don't respawn. All Marines may move during a round. The player controlling the chess pieces rolls a red die at the start of their turn and moves as many pieces as bullet holes are rolled on the red die. The player controlling the chess pieces loses when his or her king is killed. The Marines lose when they are all killed.
A better but more complex rule is that the player controlling the chess pieces moves as many pieces as damage was dealt to him/her by the Marines during the last round. This means that the more damage the Marines do in a round the more pieces the chess piece controlling player can move.
