Wait, whats the surprise here? I've played on a 72 foot board for 40k apocalypse. The table size logistics arent what I would be worried about.

You may have to alter some structural elements of the game. For example, commands tend to revolve around an army being within a certain proximity of a commander. You might consider building two different 800 point lists per player and playing one command card per army to increase order saturation. Otherwise I dont see why you couldn't do it. Just be ready to have infantry having to spend a lot of time running through empty areas.

I highly recommend to not use a square play area and put the armies away from each other range 5 tops. Otherwise you'd be spending hours just moving into fireing range. And talking about time, plan a lot of it. We tried playing 1600 Points 2v2 games twice and endet them both after 3-4 hours and not even 2 rounds played. Not my kinda game ;).

Look there are the official rules but there's nothing stopping you from have a bigger board, more points and more rounds. But I wouldn't make the depth 10 ft. With deployment that would just make the first few turns everyone moving forward before you engage. 10ft x 4ft or 6ft would cut that out and lead to quicker action.

This idea sounds cool but I agree with @arnoldrew that reaching the middle of the table would be difficult.

I can imagine it as a recreation of the Battle of Geonosis with 100+ minis per side and multiple AATs and Sabre Tanks!

The battle would take forever but it would be awesome!

I've actually done this! The feedback I can give is this: it's disgustingly good. Dropping two 1-pips and sweeping in on two flanks can be absolutely devastating. If you play droids,(which I did) this is incredibly powerful.
