I am confused about the way in which you bring Grey Knight allies into a Wh Army... Does it work in the same way as normal Space Marines (I cannot take Battle sisters etc) or is it different... Can someone please point me to a part in the codex or rulebook which answers my question if not do it here?
There is information (albeit sparse) in the WH book. Most of the info you'd need is in the Daemonhunter book under using them as allies. I'd repost the info, but I think it's against forum rules.
OK with you if I speak now, Rasheem? (Ho Ho. Inside joke).
Anyway... here's the short of it to get you started:
The parent army has the responsibility to fulfill Min Force Org requirements.
The short of it is that the WH parent may take the following GKs:
(yes, no heavy)
The long of it is that some of the additional details get really messy.
YOu really need to own both codexes, and you will still get confused.
(Because GW made such a mess of it).
Refer to this thread on alliances,
That thread may clarify the alliance rules, which are a little clumsy.
But I can save you some trouble. Basicly 1 squad of GKs makes a decent contribution to WH in many cases, and the GKs take a lot of the pressure off Sisters to perform in CC. Be advised that some tournaments do not allow allies. I have no idea how often, it's only hearsay.
I recently used them against Orks, and was shocked at their performance.
It almost wasn't fair, but the Ork player is very very expereienced and held his own.

Ok... i will go out soon and buy the codex. From what i can tell i am allowed to use the grey knights AND sisters together? hopefully i can use inquisitors too. So this means its fine for me to use a set of 5 grey knight terminators... any ideas on converting some grey knights? the terminators are so goddamned expensive.
Hmm... looking at the models that i was planning on buying maybe it will be more worth my while going deamon Hunters with Wh allies... it means i can take a dreadnought or 2 that i have always wanted and i was only going to use about 2 squads of Battle sisters anyway. I will wait till i get the codex before i make my final decision though.
yes you are allowed use grey knights as allies in any Imperium force including WH/adeptus soriatas force.Originally Posted by R1p70r
A five man squad of termies and a eight man squad of grey knights brings it up quite nicely.
As for converting them i wouldnt know how as the grey knight termies are quite different from any others. I would advise saving up and buying some (check ebay) as the models are smply stunning

We can't make up your mind for you on that. But I can give you my $0.02.
I'd rather a WH parent, because their models look better, and because the fluff is a little more interesting, and because I feel like I have more possibilities. I also think the WH Heavies are a little better.
Another point is that WH derrive a significant portion of their strength from faith. If you take a DH parent, you will never be able to assemble much faith into a build, and you will miss out on the essence of the WH army.
That was 100% subjective. But this part isn't:
I get a very warm response at my 2 local shops. Some of the more exerienced players have commented that they really like the WH army and they would enjoy it. I have no trouble finding opponents. THey really enjoy playing against the WH army.
to the original question you can use gk and sisters in the same army. gk are not counted as marines they are a completely different army but with a similar concept and fluff.
