Hey there its been a while since I've posted on Librarium Online, but I've been away from 40k and have been thinking about getting back into it, and starting a guard army. I've always wanted to do a guard army but always ended right back at my templars. Anywhoo Now I'm well on my way to starting however I am considering doing DKOK, but before I invest money into it I wanted to ask if the DKOK seige list (the one in IA5) are tournament Legal. My local GW is sold out of IA5 at the moment, and Before I plunk downt the money for one, I really wanted to make sure that they are tournament legal, I've searched around and haven't been able to find a conclusive answer.
Also do you find that Siege lists are effective in practice?
Thanks to those who reply!:party2:

you can always use the dkok models and play them, not using the forgeworld book, but the IG codex, so no heavy flamer teams or heavy stubbers, but legal on tournies!
Got a "good" rumour from a GW staffer? Forget about it, LO'ers know more than any random GW shop staffer.

As always, there's no standard for what's allowed on tournaments, some allow it, some don't. As Nemesis said, contact your local tournament organisers beforehand and ask them.
Assuming you are talking about the main GW hosted Tournaments then broadly speaking the answer is no, the specialist Forge World list would not be legal.
However, as with all legality enquiries you should note that each tournament comes with its own set of rulings. These are generally intended to level the playing field which is the main goal of any tournament host.
You would certainly be able to use you army, applying the IG Codex rules, nearly all GW tournaments allow the "Counts As" rule. Which means that as long as you are not trying to deceive anyone you can use otherwise appropriate miniatures in the stead of the standard miniatures.
A good example would be for you to say that all of you heavy stubber teams COUNT AS Heavy Bolter teams. This means you would be able to collect the army and the miniatures that you want to while enjoying the benefits of showing them off in tournaments too.
Hope that helps.
