Yep. For instance the Humans can fight with the tau army. Its the rules, point cost, etc for that unit.

Each month, Chapter Approved takes a look at the Warhammer 40,000 game and its rules, introducing new scenarios, weapons, rules and army list entries of all types, frequently stolen from Codexes in progress here at the Studio! It also acts as a forum for dedicated players of Warhammer 40,000 who have produced inspired, well thought out and just plain brilliant additions to the game (as reviewed and arbitrated by that well-known model of fairness and balance - me).
They used to be compiled annually into a book (as chapter approved features in White Dwarf every month.. or used to), however I don't think they're doing that anymore.

They are basically addons to the main rules, for example, Tau have Human Auxiliaries, Rail Rifles and Kroot Merc's (though technically speaking, these guys are their own race).

As far as I know, they are official/semi-official, however you will have to check up with the tournament organisers. A recent GW run local tournament I played in last week, allowed the use of Chapter Approved Rules etc.


Note: Rail Rifles are also listed in our FAQ thread.
