Welcome to Librarium Online!
So what are the official rules on using Chaso Daemons in a CSM army? What troops can mix with ultramarines and what are the rules. i was unaware of any of these until I met it on the tabletop. My opponent was fuzzy on the rules, but was sure he was allowed to do it.
1. Ultramarines are loyalist marines and would never, ever fight alongside daemon
2. the Chaos space marine codex contains all the necessary rules to use daemons with marines. Basically, you have generic greater daemons counting as HQ and generic lesser daemons counting on troops. You can use any daemon model to represent them.
CSM cannot take units from the chaos daemons codex, which is a completely separate army.
Silly, but that's the way it is.

I misasked the question somewhat.
You answered my question about Daemons, he used troops so he was wrong.
My second half of the question was loyalist specific - what can they mix and match? I know UM can't take IG armor for instance, but what can they consilidate into their army?
They can take 1 HQ, 1 Elite, 2 Troops, and Fast attack from both the Witch Hunters and Daemon Hunters codex. However, he MUST fulfill he compulsary troops and HQ (2 troops and 1 HQ) from the space marine codex FIRST.
