In the DH codex it says that Grey Knights can ally with sisters, does this mean, that because they are now Witch Hunters that Grey Knights can ally with them? (It is a mostly sister army anyway)
thank you for the help.
GK are a special case. Most SM armies can't be combined with any Adepta Sororitas. GK can.
Yeppers, GK can ally with Sisters and vice-versa. Both codexes lay out the limits on troop types and quantities though. Myself, I am taking Seraphim as allies for my GK. Seemed to work out well.
Sorry i think i need to clearify a bit. What my friend is trying to really ask is a two part question.
1) In the DH codex, it says they can be allies to Sisters with the limitations..., but are sisters considered just WH or a part of WH.
2) If sisters are part of WH, and there are no Adepta Sororitas in the current WH army, can GK ally with them even though that army does not include any sisters?
For all intents and purposes, SoB and WH are the same thing. Same as GK are always counted as DH.
I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to get at with your last post, but:
DH (and therefore GK) can induct WH (and therefore So.
WH can induct DH.
When you induct into either army, you do NOT need to induct SoB or GK to get access to the other parts of the army (Inquisitors, assassins, ISTs, etc).
If it's in the codex, it's part of the army list. So if you have a WH force, you can induct ANYTHING in the DH codex, as long as it follows the unit limitation rules outlines in the base army's codex. Same applies to a DH army inducting WH.
So no, you do not NEED GK to ally SoB, and you do not NEED SoB to ally GK into an army.
He meant DH codex was written before WH was out and only mentions SoB being allies. It didn't specify WH as being allies so he got confused.
SoB are WH, end of discussion
