I think fluff wise a some of the armies don't work, but I definately think the 'nids should get orks and IG (for the purpose of an old coven style army - to be honest, anyone wanting to field one against me would be welcome to, I think it'd be a boss army!).
The only ones I think would be a bit ropey would be Templars and some of the choices they have. They don't really like chapters with too many many psykers do they (bar grey knights)? so them and xenos of any style I would have thought would be a bit naughty like.
Orks I could pretty much see fighting alongside anyone (bar obviously templars and marines in general), Necrons, not being the mindles automatons they used to be I could see them allying with pretty much anyone.
I'll reserve judgement for the others, some of them I think would work well and others not so much, but it is just a game so you don't have to face them if you don't want to.
I know my brother is made up, as his Templar and IG armies are based on fluff together anyway so it's worked out for the greater good... Can't say I'll be playing my greenskins alongside my wolves though...
