Hi, I'm new to Warhammer 40k and want to collect models I can actually use first.
I plan to play a DH Army (and not as allies), now I'm somehow confused about which units I can use.
I know that I'm not allowed to use any Grey Knights with Daemonhosts. Well, then no Daemonhosts...
Can I use Assassins from the OAO and/or Death Cult Assassins (I know I have to use an Inquisitor for that) without other limitations?
Can I use Inquisitorial Stormtroopers without limitations? (Do they count as allies/IIG or are they native Daemonhunters?)
Can I use Inquisitorial Stormtroopers as compulsive selection?
Inquisitor Lord w/ Henchmen as HQ
2x Inquisitorial Stormtroopers as Troops
and xyz as "Optional" selections...
Yep, that would work.
Assassins are awesome too.
Aaah crap. So they are not native Daemon Hunters, so if I use Inquisitorial Stormtroopers I can't have any SM allies and I have to take standard Greyknights (which I wanted to avoid because they are not worth it (for not being a fast attack option) imho)
I still can't decide which allies to use
HQ: Inquisitor Lord & Henchmen
Troops: ? Grey Knights/Justicar with 2 Psycannons, any other choices!?
I like the look of the future-tech tanks of SM units (Predator, veteran cybot8X, ...) but Inq. Stormtroopers are very nice and Leman Russ is awsome but I don't like the look of that tank. (too much WW1 or WW2-like imo)
I think I will collect both ... which means 3 armies lol ;?
You underestimate the GK's.
Read your codex. Also look at megalomaniacs post on allies. (Member Created FAQ - Deamonhunters)
I think a fog of confusion may have settled over this topic. You can have both IST's (Inquisitorial Stormtroopers) and Spacemarines in the same army. ISTS's are a standard Daemonhunter troop choice and can be taken whether you are playing a solely Daemonhunter list both, puritan and radical, as well with inducted Imperial Guard or Spacemarines.
other related issues:
- If you induct Spacemarines you may not use Grey Knights
- Cannot induct both Spacemarines and Imperial Guard. Furthermore should you induct them you must still ensure that your mandatory choices (HQ + 2 Troop) come from the daemonhunter codex list
- If you use daemonhosts you cannot use Grey Knights or induct Spacemarines
- To use Grey Knight heavy armour (Dreads + Landraider varients) need to include a Grey Knight hero (BC or GM) in your army
- To use assassins, both elite varients and DC, or daemonhosts need to include a Inquisitor or Inquisitor Lord in your army
I hope this helps clear things up
Inquisitor Cronus did sum it up good well.
You should really read your codex a bit better
