I believe that when you take an inquisitor as an ally it turns your army into a Daemonhunters army. Because when i took my IG list to nationals after printing out the roster it had changed to Daemonhunters instead of IG. So maybe this would allow the extra close combat for the SW. Not sure on this. If people go RAW they might just say models in the DH codex. But if adding him as an ally changes the army definition it might confer the bonus. You'd have to look at the wording on allies in the DH codex.So I was thinking of fielding an Inquisitor Lord with my competitive SW list and I feel that since I can have two more HQs in addition to the lord, the wolves really benefit from allies. I'm not too sure on the role he is going to play (be it w/ just mystics or helping out as an IC in another unit) but here is my question.
So with the Holy Relic's ability to grant an extra attack to all models within 2d6 inches of him and the word of the emperor ability I feel he could make a good CC aid. The wording under holy relic kind of throws me off though. I'm not sure if I can quote verbatim from the codex here but in any case it basically specifies that "all models in the Daemonhunters army" get that extra attack.
So when he is taken as an ally, do I not get the benefit of the holy relic? If yes, then I'm going to try him out as a CC support unit. If not, then I'll keep him back with tarot and a group of mystics (I'll be giving him the tarot either way).
