Here's a large beachhead assault map from Yankfan.
Khimera is a large, airey battle with AT-TEs, spider walkers, and command flyers. The flyers actually work fairly well- they add a fairly cool element to the map. There are tons of units, and both sides have had their space set of units (pilots and marines) added. Don't expect to live very long in a vehicle- the sheer number of enemy troops with missle launchers (silly AI; ignoring all vehicles until you get in one, at which point they blast away) is overwhelming.
It's set with the Republic assaulting a beach held by the CIS. Yankfan has done a pretty cool job of placing the defensive turrets- up on a bluff, behind Mygeeto walls, whatever. There's a new unit/hero, Commander Gythe, along with pretty decent reskins all around for the Clones.
Okay, now picky things. While Yankfan has done an admirable job using shipped assets, I would have liked to see more new stuff. He's included a custom Rep side with the map, which increases the download size by a bunch, but there's not all that much to show for it. Commander Gythe doesn't feel all that special, he's just a reskined clone commander with infinite ammo.
The map is sorta empty. For the most part, it's water or shrubbery. I loved the objects I saw, like the ruined wookiee huts, but there just wasn't enough. It works the way it is, but I think more would be nice.
All-in-all, it's a solid chaos-y battle. When it deviates from the shipped assets, it works, I just wish it did more. A must for those who love tons of units and high kill counts.

After the Republic recaptured Kashyyyk they moved to its moons and tried to recapture those as well. GCW is just for fun.
