    Special character allies?

    This is purely speculative, but if I were playing an Ultramarines army would it be legal (assuming opponents consent to special characters) to field Shrike as an Allied HQ? and his Wing?

    Also, and htis is a far more general question: can you take allies from a trait chapter if you have a codex chapter or a chapter with different traits?

    By the rules, no. You need to keep things matched. Of course, the whole purpose of this is to keep things balanced. As long as you don't unbalance things, go for it. It's against the rules, but, bah on that.

    Bob, are you sure you're on the right side?

    Your anti-rule stance bears the stench of Chaos.

    Unless you take a second FOC, there is no way to ally any 2 SM chapters together. Special characters or otherwise.
    Mentor of Space Marine Commanders far and wide.

    Efficiency VS Point Cost VS Ease Of Use - Your best bets:

    1) Chaplain led Assault squad - 2 plasma pistols, powerfisted sergeant

    2) 8 man Devastator squad - 4 missile launchers

    3) Land Speeder Tornado - HB + AC

    Damn.

    I guess my mind has been warped by being introduced to 40K back in 2nd edition days when you could take up to half of some armies as allies.
