Hi, I am more of a painter than gamer but I can play 40k to an alright level it's only tank rules and odd little dirty codex specific paragraphs that confuse me. I want to start an Imperial army after reading the first 4 Horus Heresy books. I have some nicely painted Space Marines (tactical squad of 10, rhino) and am working on some guardsmen infantry (bought a few boxes of Cadians) I also like the look of some of the psykers, commissars, inquisitors and retinues. I don't really want any armour (tanks don't really do it for me) and I don't think I want grey knights or sisters of battle if possible. Is there a way my Space Marines and Imperial Guardsmen can be in the same legal army list?

Sorry if I am asking the bloody obvious or have posted this in the wrong part of the forum.

Space Marines and Imperial Guardsmen can't be in the same army....stupedest thing GW ever made.
I play with inducted Grey Knights, and use SM models...in game they feel like really tough marines!

Is it possible to have a Daemonhunters army with Imperial Guardsmen as the troops choice? I should buy the codex really, shouldn't I. My nearest Geeks Wankshop is a trek though.

I know you can have inducted guardsmen in this army but are they rubbish? Would I be better off doing a guard army and just giving it an Inquisitorial theme. Lots of those electro-cherubs floating about and some elaborate command groups etc?

IMO, using an IG army with DaemonHunter allies works better than DH with inducted IG. You have the full range of IG options and a decent selection from C:DH.
