Hey I'm really new at Daemonhunters and was pondering whether to start an army or not, and I was wondering something about allying forces. If I do start and army, I'm probably going to base it on Inquisitor Eisenhorn and I read about him fighting with a good number of Deathwatch and Kasrkin on a frequent basis. I was wondering, if it was possible since deathwatch take up an additional Hq slot, if it was possible to use them in conjunction with Imperial Guard regiments or if that conflicted in some odd way. The way I figure, is that since they aren't one of the possible ally units mentioned in the troops section of the codex, and they are able to be used in IG armies as well as Space Marine armies and still able to be used in the INquisition, then that would mean one could ally Imperial Guard with them. Go ahead and tell me what you all think. Thnx
I'm pretty sure that'd be a valid thing to do, at least until Ordo Xenos gets its own codex.
Go for it!
Oh, and welcome aboard!

Yes you can include both Deathwatch and inducted IG in a DH army. Now, the reason this is possible is that your IG in this case are inducted. That is different from using allies, which the Deathwatch team counts as. If you include both of these guys, you cannot use any standard inducted SM (since the IG fill that 0-1 slot) nor can you use any allied WH (since the Deathwtach team fills the 0-1 allied slots).
You also have to pass on using any GK (including GK vehicles) in such an army - a base DH army cannot include both Grey Knights and Space Marines, sadly.
On the not using Grey Knights bit, I never really intended to anyway. The Daemonhunters were much too appealing for me to turn down. Also, I like the idea of allied guard, but I still wanted something that would hit really hard. On the witch hunters, I don't really like them anyway, so it doesn't matter too much.
Thnx for the help!
