Default Which armies can have which allies?

I once played a 40K game against some space marines and he had a few squats, when I asked him what they were doing with space marines he told me they were his allies. so this got me thinking, because I'm soon to start a daemonhunters army, which armies can have which allies?

Any help?

As far as i know, without out your opponents permisson (after seeing stats and points cost) you cannot use any allies (unless it is a team game where any combo is fine).

e.g. In the earlier stages of Tau, there was a supplement on the Games workshop site that was a kroot mercs Codex. As this was not official (and moreso now that its been scrapped by GW) in order to use it, you would have to have your opponent permission.

Ok, that makes sense but if the other players are ok with it, it could be done.

Well i know for a fact that the Black templars cant and wont play in a game with an ally fielding witches. it litteraly states it in their codex. and they get a prefered enemy or something against them.

Yeah, but when ur playing a good old match with ur mates it doesn't really matter does it? In our club, we had an Eldar and Necrons alliance against Daemons, Space Marines and Tau.....possible? sure in a match, definitely not in fluff.
