Default imperial guard army, and kroot and death watch allies?

im aware the imperial guard can take kroot as an ally
or they could take the death watch as an ally.

but can they take both? (just curious, as I am building on an imperial guard army)

With the Deathwatch being the bane of everything non-human? Deathwatch, the ultimate xeno-hating star-cleansing alien hunters? Gee, I don't know

this is warhammer anything can happen. If I faced an army with both of those allies I wouldn't care if you used it or not.

I do not think the Kroot list has anything against it in there. Possibly the Deathwatch list does.

Max's point is that while it might not be against the rules in the strictest sense, it'd be extremely un-fluffy...kinda like IG allying with Tyranids.

I have a weird feeling that it might not work. Also it'll be unfluffy like Tom said.

"Eh...brother captain."

"What is it brother egor"

"Why do you allow such abominations among us?"

"Let them serve their course egor, for we shall purge them after they serve their course"

motto of the day

the enemy of my enemy is my friend, until I purge them!

the imperial guard has no issues to using fodder, death watch dont mind going on a chicken hunt after the battle is done. Hence the logical sense why the deathwatch would allow it.

imperial guard with kroot allies, and death watch allies makes more practical sense, then say imperial guard with tyranid allies.

Death watch are merely exchange student programs to learn everything about xenos are they not? in the end they are learning it to kill every xenos more effeciently.

Space Marines are psychologically conditioned warriors, brainwashed with hypnotic suggestion to make them utterly without remorse or tolerence for the enemies of the Imperium. They are so xenophobic and hateful that I should think working alongside an alien would make them feel physically sick.

If you are really dead set on fielding them together with Kroot mercenaries, perhaps you should make a house rule that your opponent gains control of them for a turn to attack the Kroot if they are ever closer to the Kill team than any enemy unit? In theory, this should encourage you to keep them distanced from one another and would represent the 'purge' beginning when enemy numbers begin to dwindle.

I bet not just aliens would make them sick, but any guardsmen that is a bit more odd/muatated/heretic looking than a normal one.
