It's been a while since I have touched my 40k stuff but the allies rule sure looks like a good way to bring me back. I loved it in 2nd edition and having more options is always good (no longer have to wait 3-4 years before something is "released" for your army!). Sure the silly combo's will come but I think this is a great move for the players and game (people would have to purchase another codex that they could branch out with). To me having chaos actually using the "correct" daemons again is most welcome.
So with this in mind I fancy getting some of the chaos IG from forgeworld to use with my chaos marine force. Only issue is I don't want a full IG force mainly die to storage space. I couple of cult squads is the aim to paint up and build a nice theme force with.
So my questions -
Who thinks allies are here to stay?
Will we see cross over units impacting allies? Looking at cultists and daemons hoping for a summoning ability
Will tournaments have a straight ally ban to prevent the combos?
