sorry if this is in the wrong forum, im guessing this is the place to put this question of mine but im not 100% sure.
at the moment im working on a necron army, but once thats done ive decided to do a second army. here in lies my problem. i want to do both imperial guard and chaos, but dont have the money to make 2 armies (even if i did thats too much money to spend on something like warhammer). after reading some of the fluff (which is something i rarely do, and dont really care about) i wondered if i could combine imperial guard AND chaos SpaM into one army.
this is basically my question, is there some LEGAL way in which i could 'ally' these two forces or is there some army involving chaos guardsmen and SpaM? i know the lost and damned are supposed to be chaos guard of sorts, but i absolutely hate the idea of creating such an army (although making plague zombies would be fun).
quite frankly i dont care too much about the fine details, and will probably create this army anyway, im just wondering if theres a way i could do it to avoid some nerd bothering me with 'HEY! THAT ARMY ISNT LEEEEEGAL LAWL!' crap.
LotD are basically a Guard list with a limited number of CSM in it. That's the only real combination list I can think of. If you're playing games at larger levels, you can just use two FOC's, one CSM and one IG, and call the IG traitor guard.
1. the hell is a FOC? i have a feeling its going to be something obvious and im going to feel stupid for asking shortly.
2. i should point out i dont plan on making standard imperial guard. i do plan on converting them to make traitor guard (mutations, trophy racks on the tanks, these sorts of things).
FOC = force organization chart, the little "0-2 HQ, 2-6 Troop, etc" thingy ^_^
And yea, I assumed you meant traitor guard. Loyal IG wouldn't work well with CSM!
hey, i was right! that was obvious! whoops.
You could go for Iron Warriors, you won't get normal IG but you will get a few imperial tanks to convert completely to chaos and lots of chaos space marines. Other than that, LatD are about the only option...
The best choice is the LatD army (see the details in codex: eye of terror), but you can also choose to play an alpha legion army and use IG minis for the chaos cultists.
