    So.... Just got about 20 regular Space Marines, all armed with either Bolters, Heavy Bolters, Missile Launchers or Chainsword + Boltpistols from a friend of mine, all made into urgh Ultramarines, so paint time! However the last bit isn't really my point, my point or rather my question is; I'm considering using them as Allies for my Grey Knight armies, since they are all armed with ranged weapons or heavy ranged weapons, thus providing decent support for my melee-heavy Grey Knights... Question is, anyone here got some good stories about the use of Allies?

    Only reason I'd ever ally anything, is to get some flyers or get something with skyfire.
    ... Well, anything your army lacks, ally your self to it, that's all.

    Get blood angels allied with eldar, and you can add OP pathfinders to your already OP BA army. That's what i'll do for sure ( I'm using BA rules for Raven Guards because I can)

    Not played many games but I use blood angels with dark angels in my higher point games, and it seems to work pretty well, my dark angels have alot of ranged plasma while my blood angels have a very assault oriented force.

    If you're asking how it is to use allies, I'd say it's alot of fun!

    Interesting choice... I guess having a full squad of meltas could be good but... nothing beats AP1 on 5's IMO

    Edit: Just kidding, figured it out

    Anyone else seen this story?

    Not sure I agree with GW actions, but when someone says "Space Marine" to me, I do immediately think of those gloriously xenophobic religious servants of the Emperor, and not a Marine...in space.

    They should drop the term space marine and FORCE everybody to use the term Adeptus Astartes.

    OT: I've got this idea in my head that I can't get rid of, I really want to make some khornate space wolves but I'm not entirely sure which kits to buy to get the best result.

    Probably best just buying a box of berserkers and a space wolf pack, then kit-bash to your hearts content.

    You end up with so many superfluous parts from the wolf pack box.

    I do agree that I too think of the GW Space Marine, but I'm going to go out on a limb here, and say that GW needs to calm their tits over copyrights and third party stuff. Seriously , it's not funny anymore that they something up their ass 24/7...

    For the whole kitbashing thing... If you have extra legs can I have them I bloody need legs

    Yes this makes me a sad puppy as I am a fan of classic Sci-Fi and Space Marines were a staple of classic Sci-Fi.

    My current Chaos Force has a band of Space Wolf zerkers in it, captured alive and turned into Blood Crazed monsters. I recommend starting with a regular Space Wolf pack, a couple of Wulfen heads, and the Khorne Berzerker pack, thats what I did and mine turned out pretty well, just like Wolves but with more spikes and blood, as befits Khorne.

    Yeh, I think its just a legal department over reacting tbh. Very much like that Saul & Santz company and the Lord of the Rings protection fiasco. I mean, demanding pubs and cafes change their names simply due to them now owning copyright is kind of absurd.

    Sad part is, this isn't the first time GW goes freaky with the legal stuff... I mean, if they were more lenient, we wouldn't have had Warcraft, which means we wouldn't be talking on this forum O.o

    Actually, Patrick Wyatt (one of lead developers of Warcraft) writes in his blog that even as their boss (Allen Adham, one of co-founders of Blizzard) tried to obtain license from GW, he and rest of team preferred making their own IP ,he does acknowledge that WHFB was a huge influence (probably an euphemism for "we changed Metzen's fanfiction just enough so we don't get sued":P).

    The blog is a great read if you're interested in history of Warcraft or Starcraft.

    Found some damn awesome shoulderpads for chaos marines on a site called puppetswar. Might use them for my chaos marines, they look wonderful.

    Very true I just wish sometimes GW would back off a little. I recall an interview with Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson (original founders of GW when they made chess boards...) and one of the reasons they cited selling so to speak, was that they were getting bored of the legal side of things, and how it seemed to stagnate creativity a little. Hence why Ian Livingstone went on to form Eidos etc, it wasn't a gripe for them, just a "We signed up to make worlds for people to play in, not get mired in law" type things.

    Actually thinking about it, those two guys are pretty much responsible for fantasy gaming in the whole of Europe (they were first to import D&D when it was a tiny almost unheard of game), so us nerds kinda owe a lot to them :P
