Default Presumably Legal?

I am constructing my tau army V.2, and to fit in with the background fluff for my sept I am including a 1000pt army of IG, chosen as normal as a seperate detechment. I can't think of why i can't but just in case. Its basically as I'm not keen on the Gue'Vesa rules. Any help/ideas appreciated.

It's not legal at all except in friendly games where people give you prior permission - In my regular club I doubt anyone would be OK with it because 1000 pts as a separate detachment smells of a certain fermented milk product: Most people trying something like that end up taking 6 heavy supports in 2000 pts. YMMV.

Why don't you just find a Friend who is Guard and Allie with him

Then you wouldn't have to buy so much guard

How about using Human Auxiliary units instead? Of course you dont' get Chimera and all that, but it's legal and you don't even need to justify the different models nor do you really need to convert them as shown on the GW website.

True Aunla but he wants to spend a thousand points on guard. Which human auxiliaries wont cost enough to equal that. But if you can't find an IG friend to ally with,get some human auxiliaries. BUT NOT TOO MANY. I find that 2 squads is the max. You need more Fire warriors than them because the fire warriors are MUCH better.

Yeah. 1k is a huge number, but in a friendly game I dont' see a problem with it. What they might agree on is a VP differential - say +20%VP for the IG units. However, even though fluff wise IG forces might fight along side Tau, the Tau would never allow it unless they adhered to Tau army structure, which constitutes conscription into the Gue'vesa.

Take* a look here: http://us.games-workshop.com/games/4...unorthodox.htm* They have suggestions for using IG as Human Aux.
