So are we losing our guard forever? Should I not even cut them off the sprue?
Aggies for 40k - PM me for details.
Tsk tsk tsk. See, that's why I never relied on taking Gaurd. However, I'm very upset that I can't put GKs in my list anymore.

I'm still betting there's IG equivalent stuff in the new codexes. I'd be willing to bet they list it in the actual WH codex, and not cross-reference it with another codex anymore.

...probably. I dunno...I did enjoy my ecclesiarchal leman russ... but I think being forced to spend the points on more battle sisters and another exorcist instead is a net positive... 4x10 battle sisters is a pretty stout scoring core to my army, and two exorcists are more than twice as good as one.

I didn't think that by removing the ally rules from the PDF's means that we can't take them anymore. I think it was done so that space marine and guard players didn't just use it as a free codex, to give them extra bonuses without GW making you buy the codex. It's intended for DH and WH players only due to the obvious lack of codexes around. Not for the others.
My two cents.
If someone helps you, rep them.
In a votewar you don't vote on a single match, you vote on the entire round. Got that?
GW has posted some new FAQ's but also answered the question, "does the pdf codex super cede the printed codex?" The answer is no, it's acceptable to use either the printed or pdf version. They do recommend that both parties agree on this beforehand and also that tournament organizers decide which one is allowed for that tournament.

jmichael is right, here is the quote in its entirity;
"We recently made the Witch Hunters and Daemonhunters codexes available to download as PDFs. Since then, we've received a spate of emails asking questions about the difference between the PDFs and the original, printed copies. Rather than reply to you all individually, I thought I'd try to answer your questions here. Firstly, the rules for allied Space Marines and Inducted Imperial Guard were originally written to reference books that have since gone out of print, so we streamlined the rules required to allow players to collect an army of Daemonhunters or Witch Hunters. The Daemonhunters army list uses the Standard Force Organisation chart, which you'll find on page 87 of the Warhammer 40,000 rulebook. The other point that seems to be causing the most confusion is whether or not the PDF versions supersede the printed versions. They don't: you should feel free to continue to use whatever resources you have available to play your games with; the PDF does not overrule or invalidate the printed Codex book. Yes, this may mean that you and your opponent are using what are essentially different army lists for the same army but not every Inquisition force will comprise of the same elements (highly specialised and secretive forces that they are). And if you'd rather use the same one as your opponent, why not simply decide which version you collectively want to use and share the rules between one another? As for tournaments and gaming events, it's entirely up to the organisers to decide which version to use; it is after all their event"
