Welcome to Librarium Online!
I one day bought 5 grey knights and then, just for painting got some Kaskrin to paint. I wondered if there was any way; at all (im desperate) to incorporate these into my SM army
The commandments of the space marines
1) thou shalt not put a 'honk if u think im sexy sticker on the sisters rhino
2)C-3P0 is NOT a necron ambasador
3) thou shalt not ask a banshee, to karaoke
4)thou shalt not ask the inquisition to bring down the exterminatus on you ex-wife
I'm pretty sure SMS can take GKs as an ally but I'm not 100% sure. They have to count as elites don't they?

Yes, an SM army may take Daemonhunter allies (including Grey Knights). You're allowed 0-1 HQ, 0-1 Elite, 0-2 Troops, 0-1 Fast Attack, and no Heavy Support. You said you bought Grey Knights, but didn't specify if they're in terminator or power armor. If they're in Terminator armor, they can be either an HQ or Elite choice (and the HQ version allows you to take a Grand Master, a ridiculously good melee character). If they're in power armor, you may take them as either Troops or Fast Attack. Troop GK units work as any other unit, while FA GK units may Deepstrike in EVERY mission (even if the scenario rules forbid it).

Borgut "SBD" GreatStrider's Ogres 6/1/2

Sigurd GreatFang's Wulfen Host 7/4/3
The Grand-Master with retinue is pretty good actually. Maybe a little pricey in 1500, but there quite a beat stick and probably worth it in 1850. The Kasrkins can be brought as Inquisitorial Stormtroopers and are kind of neat, but probably not worth it over regular Tac Marines.
Take life seriously, its lethal.
I had a question:
Can you take Radical and Grey Knights as allies to a Space Marine army?
That may sound stupid but I was just curious.

for the points cost of the grey knights they are bloody good. my mate in our club has a daemonhunters army and grey knights are very good against infrantry based armies.
for the points cost and all the cool special rules that the grey knights have, i personally think that they are dirt cheap. i mean a s6 close combat weapon and a stormbolter as well as all the grey knight special rules (see pg8 in daemonhunters codex). there justicars or sgts hav a power weapon and an extra attack and can get stuff from the daemonhunters armoury. for the price of a full tac squad, id rather hav the grey knights
