Ok, I want to make an army that's basicaly a Space marines chapter with some IG 'helpers'. I wonder if I can do this by using standard rules for all units except no doct's for the IG or, set it up like a Daemonhunter Army which allows IG units?
No you cannot, it would be an illegal army
On a brighter note, Im sure it's fairly easy to write fluff that incorporates tough SM infantry with IG tanks to form the uber army list. That is one of the reasons it is not allowed
Demon Hunter list is totally different, yes they allow "space marines" and IG but they dont allow the "good" space marines. IE the 15 point guys with 6 man las/plasma squads heh
Well, actually it's sorta Ok as long as it's not a super army of death and you're only gonna use it in recreational games, just check with your opponent first whether or not it's ok, show him/her the list and have a backup pure marine army list in case you get the answer no.
Make sure you make some good fluff to go with it.
Hint: people are way more likely to agree if there are none of the IG's "signature" tanks (e.g. any of the leman russes and/or basilisks).
... only triumph could turn pooing his pants into a good thing..
well, you could run DaemonHunters with inducted/allied Guard... that's marines (a kind of marine) and by the book...
*nods* I plan to do it for friendly games using the Daemonhunters rules, due to my fluff.
As long as you use a set of rules that are already in play. I.E Daemon Hunters. Then people playing friendly games shouldn't have a problem with it.

It would actually be a little more in keeping with the theme of the 40K universe if you based your army around the IG with some added help from a unit or two of SM.
An armored combany with a deep striking unit of Termies for example, or maybe a unit of veteran assault troops.
Just my humble opinion
