Welcome to Librarium Online!
Can I use Harlequins as an Allied force? I'm reading the Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War series and in the Tempest book it has the Harlequins and Dark Eldars working together.
How do you mean? Fluffwise, yeah the harlequins work with dark eldar. You can ally the harlequins from the citadel journal lists with dark eldar but they have been rendered obsolete by the new harlequins in the eldar codex, which you can't use. Although, if you get your opponent's permission you can do just about anything.

As the man said Harlequins used to be a seperate army list with thier own force org chart etc, available as an ally to many armies. But now they have been reduced to an Elite choice in the Eldar army list (as per the new Eldar Codex)
War Record Since Sept 2005
Old Codex 48-20-9 Dark Eldar
New Codex 1-0-0 Dark Eldar
I personally hope they are allowed to swing between the Eldar and the Dark Eldar as elite mercenaries but with some differences factored in to more suit our style of play.
In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
I just hope we get Solitaires....
They were conspicuously absent from the Eldar Codex....
Perhaps, when we get Harlie's, They'll be different units to the ones the Eldar get...
So, The Eldar will get Death Jesters, Troupers and The HQ, and we'll get the Harlie Transport and Solitaires.
One can pray....
minimalism is the key.
So does this mean harlequins can no longer be made in to an army? Thats a shame, wish I'd started playing this game earlier.
If we do get harlequins I seriously doubt we would be getting a different set of harlequin units. It would make no sense at all giving us access to different harlequin troops than the Eldar as harlequins are still harlequins.

I played in a big Mega-Battle last weekend and it was Eldar vs. the store. Since there were so many people playing against the Eldar, the store asked me to switch sides and play on the side of the Eldar.
To get to the point, I played side by side to a full Harlequin army. The models were beautifully painted and they looked very Renaissance. It was the first time I had seen any and they sure seem to be very potent against marines. So it seems Harlequins are permitted in my store but I believe you still have to ask your opponent.
Of course the Eldar won, we had two Eldar Titans supporting us and my wych cult were the only scoring units that played the mission instead of playing "kill the marine".
