Doesn't this work because deamonhunter/greyknight dreadnoughts count as elite choices and not as a heavy support? Or was there something specific listed in the WH codex that i'm missing... (don't have a WH codex here, have a DH codex and a friend who plays WH who thinks it'd be cool to have a dread in his army but doesn't want IG/space marines).
ah lost nemesis, with his unhelpful 'high and mighty' approach to things
as for the question, this has actually been dealt with before and it was a no, you cannot use GK dreads in a WH list

I don't see how your post is any more helpful than my own, as they both say the same thing - no, it's not possible, because Grey Knight Dreadnoughts are Heavy Support choices, and I believe that is a clarification that needs pointed out, simply because that is the reason they can't be used. I am quite confident that INQ knows the Ally rules, which is why the Elites vs. Heavy Support part was thrown in there, and I'm also confident that INQ knows I was in no way trying to put him down or be "high and mighty."
Have a great day.
If you're after a dreadnought inducted space marine can provide you with one. However you wouldn't be able to use sisters of battle if you do. If you're specifically after a Grey Knights dreadnought the only method currently is to use a Daemon Hunters army as the parent list and have Witch Hunters as allies (you can also do this with space marines). The downside to this is that you limit your choices a fair bit from the Witch hunter list (no heavy support at all either).
What are you trying to do anyways...we may be able to help you if you gave a specific goal.
I agree certainly it's a less points efficent manner to gain a dreadnought...especially if one has no interest in space marines, but if the player does like space marines this is quite a good route to take IMO.
Well, then take 'em!
They're better than our standard stuff!

I'd just like to point out that you can fairly easily switch your base army from WH to DH. If you use IST as Troops, you can count them as DH Troops instead, and then get a GK Hero for an HQ (required for GK Dreadnoughts). You'll still be able to use most of your WH units (excluding Heavy Support choices, or more than one or two of each other FOC slot), and you'll then be able to get that GK Dreadnought.
Just an idea.
