Default Alliances

Can I have a list of what armies can take other armies as allies, without breaking any copyright laws? So far, I have...

Tau with Kroot

Actually, Tau can't take Kroot in the Allies way. They just have Kroot units integrated into their army list. Armies that can take allies (using the rules for them, i.e. not inducted Guard) are:
Space Marines-either Ordo, Deathwatch
Guard-either Ordo, Deathwatch, Kroot
Ordo Hereticus-Ordo Malleus, Deathwatch
Ordo Malleus-Ordo Hereticus, Deathwatch
LatD-Chaos Space Marines, Kroot
Everyone else (except Tau, Nids and Crons)-Kroot

I think that's everything.

EDIT: oh, and Harlies with Eldar and Dark Eldar, I think (though I could be wrong).

By Ordo Hereticus you mean Daemon Hunters and by Ordo Malleus you mean Witch Hunters? Can the Guard take the Daemon Hunter Grey Knights or the Witch Hunters' Sisters of Battle? And what is Deathwatch? (no rulebook and no codex cept Tau...as of now)

Marines and Guard can ally with Inquisitorial Orders.
Inquisitorial Orders can ally with each other.
All armies except Necrons, Tyranids, Tau and Space Marines can ally with Kroot Mercenaries.

Other way around:

Ordo Malleus = Daemonhunters
Ordo Hereticus = Witchhunters
Ordo Xenos = Alienhunters

I know Grey Knights are Daemon Hunters and Sisters of Battle are Witchunters, so can they go into a Guard army?

Are Imperial Guard Imperial?

Consider this a yes.

The Grey Knights are more like SMurfs, so are you sure they can be used? I've never heard of them being used with Guard, just Space Marines.

Trust me, they can.
Page 21 of the deamonhunters codex says they can.

My dispute either to start Imperial Guard, Chaos Marines, or Tyranids first has been decided. A tank-heavy army with Grey Knights is bound to do some damage. But is there a dwonside to alliances, cause I don't know of any special rules with alliances.
