I was just thinking would the Black Templars ever ally themselves with any Xenos army (DE, Necrons, Orks etc) or any Chaos army (Alpha Legion, Word Bearers etc) if they both were getting attacked by a bigger threat like the Tyranids, Necrons, Daemons or would they be way too righteous to want help from any xenos, heretics or traitors (most probably what they would call them) & just fight for themselves & have a huge 3 way battle.
They're the Black Templars, they're too awesome and righteous to need help.
Heck, is explicitly states in their codex that they won't ally with any army that uses psykers (except Grey Knights), due to their righteous hatred of the filthy lesser beings of the galaxy.
Short answer: no.
I think the only xeno faction that would help the imperium out would be Eldar and even then only in the direst of circumstances. But since Black Templars despise psykers in every form and every Eldar is a psyker (well most anyway), then I just don't think that would ever work out.
You might want to take this to the fluff section though..?
And yet, the templar themselves would have to employ psykers in the form of Navigators or else they wouldn't be able to get anywhere.
deathwatch arn't psykers they are just elites.
gw is a bit iffy with it's fluff -space marines are notoriously independent but they have written multiple stories where they have teamed up with renegade chapter, Tau and eldar to defeat a sudden onrush of necrons, tyranids, other eldar or daemons.
The Wolf time is upon us!
