Hey is it possible to have aplatoon of the jungle fighters and a platoon of the reg ones?
Also is it possible to use allies weapons? And how do allies work?
For allies you will need the codex of whichever ally you wish to use (Demon Hunters Codex, Witch Hunters, Theres a Chapter Approved with Kroot Mercenaries in it... etc) The specific codex they are in will tell you how to pair your Imperial Guard army to it.
As for the Jungle Fighters doctrine, you upgrade units with it individually. So yes you could give one platoon the doctrine, and have another platoon that will not have it because you did not pay the points per unit. Just make sure the unit you are giving the doctrine to is listed under "Guard Infantry" on the bottom left column of page 55 in the Guard Codex.

well am i allowed to ally myself with more then 1 other race. And could i use their simple weapons like i was planning on allin Grey knights and use them as melee and then giving my soldier storm bolters instead of lasgun. Since lasguns blow
You can take GK and use them for melee. Your guardsmen however are stuck with lasguns no matter what ally you pick. You can only have allies from one army aswell.Originally Posted by Gromhell
lasguns may be the worst basic rifle in 40k but they still manage to get the job done, especially when you fire them en masse.

however, you *can* give your Officers Stormbolters, and if you upgrade your Sgts to VeteranSgts then they can take Stormbolters as well.
How does this allies thing work? Everyone talks about allies, but where are the rules for them?
What? Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

Their rules are in other Codexes.
Witch Hunters can have Guard allies (or the other way around)
Demon Hunters can have Guard allies (or the other way around)
Both of those armies have their own codex, which you would need.
The only other ally I can think of would be Kroot Mercenaries, which have their rules listed in one of the Chapter Approved books.

1st off i have a space wolves codex and it didnt say anything about teaming with anyone and same with my tau though it talked about how they did in fact touch base.
2nd it says that imp guards have the ability to use pulse rifles and their armor and also ad some of their weapons to tanks
Other than some special stuff in Chapter Approved concerning Kroot Mercs, only the Ordos of the Inquisition may ally with other armies and then only other armies of the Imperium. Basic IG and Smurfs may be inducted into the Inquisition armies, but they are a part of that army at that point and not really allies. The rules for taking Daemon and Witch Hunters as allies are covered in the DH and WH Codecies. There you will find what you need in the parent army and which units can be used.
Gromhell, what you are talking about are the Tau Human Auxillaries. They are covered in a Chapter Approved article but I don't know what issue of WD its in.
