Default Allies

Allies

This is just a quick post Iím trying to make some simply rules for adding allies. I was thinking might add unit from another army (must be backed up with fluff) this unit take up two slots on the organization chart one from their original place and one from the Elites. This unit cannot be one of the compulsory choices and cannot cost more points than any other single unit in the rest of your army.

The idea behind this is so you can have a single squad of marines drop pod into the front lines of an Imperial guard battle agents an overwhelming hoard of orks or a squad of Terminators help you explore a Necron tomb.

The only issue might be determining WHY some armies might fight alongside...especially if they are on unfriendly terms.

Draw up a chart listing, for each army, who their allies are/might be.

As far as deployment, allow 0-1 HQ, 0-1 Elite, 0-2 Troops, 0-1 Fast attack, and 0-1 Heavys, but at twice the normal cost (representing that they are calling in a BIIIG favor).

I know the fluff can be a bit odd however there are very few reason that say they defently cannot fightalong side eash other and as the the "Allied" unit I was only going for a single 0-1 unit.

In that case, maybe a 0-1 Elites may be used from one other army, any one force org. slot unit other than HQ's (because I doubt their allies would lend out their commmanders...)
