Well, like title said... would it be viable to have both these armies teaming up given that.
1. I use Cypher
2. I use the marines (and just marines, not ravenwing or deathwing stuff) as a representation of fallen angels.
And if so.. what rules should I use? Codex DA or Codex Chaos w/ the Fallen angels addon?
I can probably figure out the correct answer, but I'd like to hear from some other people. Perhaps it's just me that I think it would fit fluffwise. I'm playing some friend of mine in a couple of weeks and given he at this moment has and wants to field around 8000 to 10000 pts. of Eldar for an Apoc game, I should probably buff up my Chaos forces to about the same amount. And of course adding in a couple of nice things along the way wouldn't be that bad.
But the question here is; would you accept a Chaos player fielding a bunch of Dark angels and bringing up something like: those are fallen angels under leadership of Cypher (who of course is at the party as well)
I would let you use the dark angels codex, but I think it makes more sense to use them with the chaos codex. Besides why would the fallen have combat squads? And ultra grit, who doesn't want that?
I also think the chaos codex is more flexible with the fluff and should work better plus the chaos codex has a picture of the fallen.
After all fallen are renegades and thats what the new codex is supposedly all about.
I could totally see that in an Apocalypse game. The ally matrix is there as a guideline, not the law, and fallen DA are a really good addition to have for Chaos. Since fallen DA can be Chaos or just have Fallen, you could justify using either Codex, especially since people have different interpretations of who Cypher is and what purposes he's working towards.
Well why not... what's next Tau and Nids?
