Welcome to Librarium Online!
Is it possible for Necrons to ally with Lost and The Damned? It says something about it in the Witch-Hunters book... is that a missprint or what?
Necrons can't ally with anyone.
In the WH codex it gives rules for using Adversaries, but you can only use those against WH Armies, and even then it's not real fluffy, unless you start going into the 'Photo-Pharian' or 'Mind Controlled' fluff.
I'm not sure if Ally is the word, but, fluffwise, tyranids and necrons could work together.
Think about it- tyranids eat everythings' bodies. However, I doubt that they could eat metal without some serious indigestion. Therefore, they do not bother with necrons.
Necrons are there to kill things so that the C'tan can eat their souls. Animals do not have souls. Tyranids are animals. Therefore, necrons do not bother with tyranids.
In fact, it would be to their collective advantages to work together.If necrons and tyranids both went down to a planet, then both would kill everything. All of the biomass would be eaten by the 'nids, all of the souls would be eaten by the C'tan. Once the battles were done, the necrons would retreat to orbit while the planet was eaten. Then, they go back in and make it a tomb world- no life to accidentally stumble onto and destroy the tombs, and, as they are behind the main tyranid advance, nothing is likely to be able to get there.
Once all life had been extinguished, the tyranids would bugger off, and the necrons would be left with a system full of tomb worlds. Result!
This is working from a fluff/logic point of view- if there are rules for allies, please post.
*In My Mind*

Problem is fluf has openly suggested tyranids stay well away from necrons, and fluff has also suggested that yes, nids have no sould to eat. Thus the C'Tan don't care to tough them except for the fact that the nids are steppin in on their galaxy. So ofcourse their are many reasons to fight, but really not mnay for them to ally.

The main problem with 'nids and 'crons being friends is they are competing over the same natural resource, namely people. The 'nids want the body and the 'crons want the souls but I doubt they'd ever work out a deal so they have to compete for the whole package and use what they need. There are countless situations throughout history where this has occurred, usually with dire consequences for both sides.
The current rumor is Pariahs are really Cullexus? assassins converted into Necrons. Could you imaging what a great Necron a Hive Tyrant or Carnifex would make? How about a Genestealer-based Flayed-one?
I doubt they could ever be friends.
I do not criticize. I do not offend. All I offer is my opinion which means only as much as you make it.
You could do it in a game with mates though, couldn't you? Ally 'crons and 'nids?
You can do anything in a game with mates.
The only thing you can 'officially' ally with Necrons is Harlequins.
If your friends will allow it, yes.
If it's you and your friend (two different armies), then it would be legal in something like a doubles tourney, etc. etc.
As for inducting allies and separate detachments, etc. it's not legal, but if you have your opponent's consent you can really do anything you want.
Except for, of course, Harlequins when you are against Chaos.
But do you really think that the C'tan would want to share the rescources? And how can they be freinds if they can't communicate? Or can they?
