Chaos and Daemon Allies and Icons

Postby Lord Krungharr » Sun Jul 01, 2012 5:56 am

Well at last we can wonder about the most burning question I can think of, in an Allied army, can Daemons (from Codex Daemons) use the Chaos Marine Icons (Personal or otherwise) to come into the battlefield from Reserves without scattering?

I will say yes for these reasons.
1) The Chaos Marine Greater Daemon says it must possess an appropriate model to enter the game. The big guys in the Codex Daemons are not specifically called Greater Daemon so they should not suffer the aforementioned limitation.

2) Codex Daemons daemons, small or big, must enter play from Reserves via Deepstrike. Chaos Marine Icons permit Deepstriking Friendly units to not scatter. Daemons allied to Chaos Marines count as Friendly units for all ....abilities, etc. The Codex Daemons daemons however would not be able to assault in that turn like the plain Chaos Marine daemons, as they are coming in from Reserves.
A similar example would be Deathwing Termies could use an Ultramarines Teleport Homer to come into the game without scattering. Friendly, deepstriking, share abilities, etc. (etc. meaning wargear effects)

3) I play Chaos and Daemons and I say it's about freaking time that this happened!

So what do other folk think?

Speaking of Daemons,

The new Daemon USR has changed giving Daemon's a 5+ invo and Fear Special Rule.

Question: Are they still Fearless and Eternal Warrior?

Correct as stated in their rulebook. They also cause fear.
