A First Look at the New Warhammer 40K 7th Edition Allies Chart http://t.co/UpW5sIaS1z

and it actually got me a little excited for the game again (my interest in 40k has waned a lot over the past few years but some releases have changed that). The biggest thing is that all Imperial Armies are now considered battle brothers. Imperial armies encompass basically all Space Marine chapters, Imperial Guard forces and Inquisition forces.
Why is this important? Well I've always wanted to do a joint Dark Angels and Space Wolves army as the two marine chapters have so much rich history with each other. Despite what current Wolf and Angels players say now, I am a firm believer that their rivalry is one of mutual respect and not one of malice or hatred.
This new alliance matrix means this pipe dream army of mine can actually come true without having a significant disadvantage in the actual game (the non-scoring Troops from 6th are a big hindrance I think). To be honest I'm not sure if I will add anything to my collection but things like this will encourage me to try and pick up the hobby again.
Now to decide what Space Wolf units will go best with my Deathwing forces.
