Hey, I'm going to play a couple games against Daemon Hunters, and I was wondering what anyone would suggest taking? I'm playing an EC army. Any suggestions would be great.
Does he fields normal deamonhunters or does he also uses Grey Knights.
Best advice against the GK is not to go into cc unless you have no ther choice, the warpscream abilty come much handy in this case, load up on plasmaguns.
If you have deamonettes, use them and don't worry about them beeing destroyed, they come back in your next turn
since GK lacks effectief anti-tank, a predator or defiler could provide some good range support.
That depends on the type of Daemonhunters army. If its Grey Knights, play against them as if they're marines, and stay away from their Nemesis force weapons. Try to shoot them up, but plan on close combat too. They're Aegis special rule limits your range.
And don't hesitate to throw Deamonettes at their Terminators to soften them up. They're extremely dangerous and can carve your Troops up bad.
If its Inquisitorial, you want to get them in close combat and make sure they don't psycannon your stuff.
As for your list, you can try to minimize the advantages your opponent gets by un"deamon"ing your stuff a little and keeping upgrades down so you can outnumber him more, or you can go all out and take on his army with lots of daemonic stuff. Remember that when fighting Daemonhunters, you get to use daemonic infestation rules.

What are daemonic infestation rules?
it means that your deamons come back next turn so just keep throwing them at the GK
Ahh... Ok... What about Mounted Daemonettes? Think those might be worth bringing in?
Their decent, they have considerable range so very often they are able to get straight into cc the turn they arrive, 4 redning attacks permodel isn't to shabby.
