Me and my friends are trying to startup this hobby here in Korea, so we dont have a lot of experience with veteran players. On a smaller forum I noticed someone mentioning something like "you have to ask your opponent if its alright to use allied forces" and also I read "Its uncommon and forbidden in official tournaments."
So what do you say? Mixing units, even if it's allowed by the rules/codex is something that is uncommon or even not allowed at most games?
For imperial players the only legal allies in non apocalypse games are either Witch Hunters or Daemon Hunters. The rules for fielding allies in or from those two armies are stated in each of their codex.
For everyone else - no. No allies, not legally anyway.
But for friendly games I'm not sure many people would care.
You could have two players on one side each using a single FOC to select their army if you want, but any special rules allowed by certain characters wouldn't affect the other players army. But in a one on one game, you couldn't really mix and match unless agreed upon otherwise.
I can't say I've seen it all but I live for the things that keep me hollow.
Thanks distortiondave. I don't want to dedicate myself to buying, painting and experimenting with a WH/DH army only to go to Europe or North America and have people scoff at my army. I was worried that, even though its legal in the codexes, players would feel its 'gamey' or 'cheesy'.
And y any rights, if playing friendly games with epople you know - anything should go. Pick-up games with strangers and official tournaments are a little stricter
