The Word Bearers have the ability to sacrifice 1 elite, fast attack, or heavy support choice for additional troop choices. How does this translate into LatD? Could I sacrifice my 1 allied fast attack choice for 3 allied troop choices? or is this not possible?
The legion specifiek rules applky only to that legion ( quite obvious ), with LatD your not playing that legion so no legion specifiek rules ( also very obvious ).
So unfortunatly for you, you can't.
No, you cannot, though it seems like not all the software GW released are aware of this. So if you are using some Army-building software this may occour, but be aware, it is wrong.
And by the way, you might know this already but anyhow, you cannot ally in daemons as they already exist in the LatD army list.
I see, but I feel I must disagree with you on the obviousness of all this.Originally Posted by Dreachon
What about rules for the Night Lords, where they can take infiltration at 1pt per model oppose to 3 pts per model. Would that apply to allied Night Lord Troops?
It says in the Eye of Terror FAQ that allied legion special rules apply to all Chaos Space Marine units. Naturally, that leads me to believe that you can use the Night Lord special rules for allied Night Lord Troops.

Sure enough, that it does. Looks like you may be right. One of these days I really need to pick up the Eye of Terror codex so I can suitably field these questions. Here's something else that's pertinent -Originally Posted by Ekranoplan
"....only one Legion may provide the Allies, and their rules will apply to all Chaos Space Marines units."
So, this leads me to believe you can ally with Alpha Legionnares, and all Alpha Legion Chaos Marines could take Infiltrate for one point per model. Obviously, the Traitor Guardsmen would not get this benefit.
This muddles up the original question though. I'm still leaning towards "No". The FAQ states that any special rules that apply to Chaos units are still in effect - the Force Organization rules are not applied to units, they're applied to the army list.
I feel I relly shouldn't have to say this, but Caluin is right. Suprised you all now didn't I. OK entirely right as Alpha Legion gets the discount.
The thing is you could ally with Wordbearers and the Demagogue would affect any Chaos Units- that includes traitors and mutants, but you would not benefit from the FOC-"bonus"-nine troops as you are not playing a Wordbearer army, you are not using their FOC. Your main army is the Lost and the Damned-2 HQ, 3Ellites, 6 TROOPS etc etc.
You could see it like this (though I might be complicating things now) you ally in two of the WB's nine troops, this will not grant you nine troop-slots.
Indeed, but traitor guard can already infiltrate.Originally Posted by Caluin
It would be nice if the original question was a "yes" though. I was hopeing there might be some FAQ or Q&A out there that made it so. When it comes to traitors, mutants, allies, and various other options, 6 troop choices are sometimes limiting.
