I was curious, at what point level do you think Daemon hunters are most useful? I feel that they're strongest at the 2000 point range. Despite the fact that we're always on a budget, I feel that this point value gives us a wide enough selection to make an effective list.
I haven't gotten to games above 1,500pts yet. So I can't really say. I think it really depends on the composition of the army as to what level it works best at. If you use pure Grey Knights then your going to need to be at higher point levels to be effective, but if you include IST's and Inquisitors, then you may be able to work well at lower levels.

I actually think they are best at 1000pts where the strength of PAGK can really shine. When you start adding lots of Elite and Heavy Supports enemy choices we seem to get against a wall.
I rarely lose at 1000pts.

i think they work best as allies to be honest, especialy a nice big GK contingent in an imperial apocalypse army.

This is so horrible to fight against. I have Creamed a lot of opponent's with this
Tyranids Win / Draw /Lost 
Daemon Hunters Win / Draw / Lost 
I haven't used DH without taking allies/being allies for quite a while, but I've taken this mix of =I= DH and marines in combat patrol that seems to work real well for me. No losses yet
-Elite =I= w/ psycannon. Retinue: 2 sages, 2 servitors (HB & PC), 2 acolytes w/ bolter and carapace
-2x 5 man IST, 2 plasma in each
-Chimera w/ hull & turret HB

I think 1750 points and above is nice for us. Later this month I will be playing a 4000 point gave versa Necrons. I iwll fill out the hole FOC chart.
Why use science and education when ignorance and superstition will work just as well.
I agree with Diggums Hammer's assessment. It's at low points levels that the superior power of our models has the greatest effect, and is the least offset by greater numbers of [specialized] enemy units. 1000 pts - 1250 pts is probably the DH "sweet spot", where we have the best chance of taking advantage of our strengths and least chance of suffering our weaknesses. I'd say that means that the "typical" game that GW expects most people to play at -- 1500 pts -- isn't too bad for us, either (though, of course, it's amazing what other armies can buy for 250 pts - 500 pts compared to us )
Unfortunately, there's just not much you can field at that level. For that reason, I prefer playing games between 1750 pts and 2000 pts.
ninjabackhand: point and click, again, really? even after i give you an military term "shock tactic" you still call it point and click.
