Hey everyone it's Alpex again with another question!...
As my book says for Wood Elfs, Forest Spirits can join Forest Spirits, and vis versa. So does that mean BranchWraith can join with Dryads, TreeKin, TreeMan. I know BranchWraith can join with Dryads, but what about the other two, because my book says that only Treeman Ancient can't be joined with any forest spirits vis versa.
Any help is appreciated!
Treemen and Treemen Ancients are monsters, and thus cannot join or be joined.
Branchwraiths and Glamorweave kindred casters may join units of forest spirits - Dryads, Treekin, Wild Riders.
Ok so if a branchwraft can join treekins does this mean for Tomb kings a TP can join a squad of Ushabti's?
Or it doesnt work for TK because it doesnt say any special thing where a TP can join Ushabti's

Any Character can join any unit unless his or the unit's rules say otherwise, with the exception that Monsters and other Characters are single models and therefore cannot be joined by anybody. Note that the rules for Monsters applies to those units on large bases (40mm +) which can only be taken as single models. Ushabti can be taken as a unit of more than one, so they can be joined by Characters.
In the case of Wood Elves, the Forest Spirits and Kindreds rules make things a shade more complex, but that's all.
As an aside, the latest FAQ states that the Treeman Ancient counts as a Character and not a Monster, so things that affect Monsters don't work on him (for example the Beast Cowers spell). This is also true of Greater Daemons, Shaggoth Champions etc.

Thanks for the help. :')

Okay, Thanks for all the help again guys, i just was making sure that i was aloud to join BranchWraith with Dryads, and TreeKin, but i guess i can't have Her with Treeman, but thats okay.
I am right 94% of the time, why worry about the other 3%.
Also be aware that the unit as a whole (with characters joined) will move as fast as their slowest member.
So a Liche (M:4) who joins a unit of Ushabti (M:5) would make the whole Ushabti unit only get to move 4" and charge 8" for the entire time that the Liche hangs out with them.
Thanks for the page number.
Also note that only single models on food can join units of skirmishers: Wildrider kin and Glamourweave Kin cannot join a unit of Dryads as they both require a mount of some sort. Only Characters that can join them would be the branchwraiths. This is discussed under the skirmishers section of the warhammer rulebook.
