    Using Daemonhunters as allies?

    First off, would you reccommend using Daemonhunters as allies? I am having a friendly game this weekend and was thinking of using an assassin and some GK's along with my trusty guard. What would be the best combo of IG and DH?

    Second, if you were playing a guy in a friendly game and he wanted to know what you were using, would you say Imperial Guard or Imperial Guard with Daemonhunters as allies? I was thinking of trying to make it a surprise, but I wanted to have a fair game.

    Thanks

    well as debated in an older thread for clarification
    if you're going to use grey knights as allies and you want that assassin
    you will need to take an inquisitor lord, the assassin... , then you'll have 2 troop choices and a fast attack option open left for grey hunters. which you would most likely only want to go with the grey hunter deep strike fast attack... but they can be expensive point-wise. also, the key to the inquisitor lord, is either go all out range with him or keep him as cheap as possible (i liked power weapon, bolt pistol, familiar, and 2 acolytes w/ twin-bolt pistols), while maintaining some slight counter-charge ability. keeping the focus on just being able to field the assassin (which you might want to stick an improved comms on a vehicle if you're taking callidus to make sure it gets on the field as quick as possible).

    as for which assassin is best to use, callidus. with eversor close second (really the hardship it is to get him into combat where he's needed before getting shot up is what makes him not quite as good). vindicare is alright, but he will rarely make his point cost back killing one model a turn, while the culexus or however it's spelt, rarely ever used whatsoever. GW makes a lot of anti-psyker things for imperium, i rarely ever fight anything where they rely on psyker if they even have any (eldar maybe the only time ever; if only there was some way to break up the mass ork mentality psyker fluff).

    if you skip the assassin, most thing people usually go with when they get Daemonhunter allies is a squad of GK Terminators, and sometimes a monster cc Master. i personally have never used these (my IG are renegade-faction in fluff so i steer away from them). so hopefully someone good with them will answer you there, another thread has a lot of useful info on them. here (Drop Troop Specialized Units). mind you, that one focuses on using them in relation to an IG drop troop army.

    officially,
    if you're packing DH, you have to let the enemy know 'cause they have access to Adversaries.

    I will be playing a 1000pt game versus either Orks, Daemonhunters or Chaos.

    Well if I was to go with IG with DH allies this is what I was thinking of:

    HQ: Heroic Senior Officer, Standard Bearer, Master Vox.
    Troop 1: Basic HQ, 2 or 3 squads with plasmas, vox's and one of the heavy weapons each.
    Troop 2: Armoured fist with meltagun, vox, meltabomb.
    Heavy Support: Leman Russ
    HQ: INQ Lord, Plasma Cannon, 2 Sages, Warrior with plasma gun.
    Elite: Callidus Assassin.

    Thats very rough, but thats the sort of thing I was going for. What do you think?

    might want to consider taking a mystic or two with your inquisitor lord. get a free shot at any deep strikers that land nearby as soon as they land.

    vs Demon Hunters, you're mulch... even with the free shots, his deep strikers will make the assassin and the inquisitor useless...

    against chaos... can't say... you've got a chance

    agianst orcs... you've got a decent chance...

    IMO... look at HW Servitors to make the Inquisitor double as heavy support.
    taking a Lord just to ge the assassin isn't a good tactic, ever.

    Well news has broken to me that I will be playing just the Orcs so I was thinking maybe a few Psycannons? He might be using a battlewagon but I have no idea what that is.
