I'm thinking about starting a large gsc army with both nid and guard allies.

You guys think think this is a viable option?

It's the best option ATM. As both guard and nids will be sitting on shiny new cutting edge codexs while the cult wallows in the index list doldrums.

I personally find the guard allies more cult characterful as I like the whole infiltration and insurrection style, but I suspect either option or both will produce exciting combos.

Well, what I was thinking with the nids was to use trygons and genestealers/broodlords for a subterranean assault kinda thing.

As much as I know that Guard are more fitting allies for the cults then nids (once the nids start landing, the cult's job is done and they're on a very finite lifespan), the thought of having hulking monstrous creatures in support of your cultists is too awesome to pass up.

But, nids are very alien compared to the cults in how they look and play which hits home that genestealer cults are still human to some degree. Hence the allying with guard is more appealing because they synergise well as the enemy within. Its the enemy within part that drew me to the cults in the first place a very long time ago.

The greatest contradiction of chaos is that it is a realm in constant flux, yet the gods themselves never change.
