Could i use GK troops as assult marines because the modles look so good and to me def look assulty enough.
Provided that you were not using ordinary GK in your army as well as those counting as assault marines (or that there is a significant difference between the two groups of models) then I can see no porblem in a friendly match with you doing this.
However in any tournament you would most likley not get away with this unless the models were converted and clearly identifiable as assault marines and not GK.
(and conversions are fun to do as well for friendlies - adds your own looks to your army)
Keep in mind that the GK models are equipped with storm bolters, so you'll have to swap those with pistols if you plan on using them in tournaments.
There is no such thing as a plea for innocence in my court. A plea for innocence is guilty of wasting my time. Guilty.

Why wouldn't they let him do it in a tourny? As long as he gets rid of the storm bolters it should be fine right?
I would say if he got rid of the storm bolters for bolt pistols, and added jump packs (or, IIRC, I guess you could field them without via the rules), and then painted them along the lines of your army, then I would say they would be 100% fine in any tournament.

there are a lot of times WYSIWYG doesn't apply, such as with all the purity seals you see on marines, yet almost no one actualy pays the points for them. Granted, it would be a bit of a stretch for me to call my space marines sisters of battle just becuase they are in power armor and have bolters, but in general WYSIWYG is focused on having the right weapons and wargear modeled.
and ya... jump packs would be good too unless you want them to footslog or ride in a landraider, I would suggest giving them chainsword too. >.<
