Army List quick question

I've created my own chapter The Nova Hawks. my list is over 1300pts but there is a snag... I am using the SM codex and the DA codex to make a kind of mixed army.

Basically I am asking if I do a basic SM list and add a detatchment of DA vets using the DA Codex would anyone object to that in game terms?

2011 Games:

Space Marines W:1 L:1 D:0
Current nemesis: Eldar

With every game it just depends on who you play. If you explain your list and can create a lovely story with flashing colours, or wavey hands in my case, then normally people are ok with such things. Its like the 'this represents rule'. There will always be some people who will say NO. There will however, always be people who will find it interesting and a laugh to play against.

I have entered a tournament with a Chaos army with a guard partner, seeing a commander screaming for the emperor while next to two squads of plague marines against a loyal librarian is always a good watch.

What is your list?

Yep. The only way to use allies these days is to have two separate lists. In other words, if you were playing a 2000pt game, you could do a 1000pt list from C:SM and a 1000pt list from C:DA. That would require 1 HQ and 2 troops from each.

Now, what you could do is to use the rules all from one codex, and just have the models from DA. I'm not sure what you are working towards. But, most players will definitely oppose someone cherry picking the best units from separate codices.

In Apocalypse I would accept it without problems, but try to throw forth two Codexes in a 1500pts battle and I will quite likely have already packed up my stuff and walked out of the door by the time you are about to explain a reason for this alliance.

But, why not use the DA vets as Sternguard Veterans? Basically the same thing really.

Yeh I love the DA models, but just use them as glorified sergeants or tactical marines.

I'd accept as long as you explained any relevant special rules, but I like to see myself as a more casual gamer and abhor WAAC mentality. I enjoy losing as much as winning; more so when I play bad losers who would make the game a nightmare if I beat them.

Give a man a match, and he's warm for a day.

Set a man on fire, and he's warm for the rest of his life!

I wouldn't mind a friendly game or two, but I wouldn't accept it as a general thing. I'm all for an interesting game (in fact I have my own thread about what would people accept up), and I've always said I'd rather loose a good game than win an easy one, but each codex is ballanced within itself for unit and points cost. So if you were coming in every week for a game with that, I'd ask you to re-think it.

I've never seen impossible as a reason not to try.
