I love the smell of burning daemons in the morning, and I mean burning from holy purgation, not from the regular fire that seems to acompany them.
Anyways, I wanted to ask you all why you think Daemon hunters are badass, why you love to play them, and exactly the way your opponents seem to pair up with each other as soon as you show up on game night.
This is a simple "Why are Daemon Hunters your favorite army?" Thread.
For me it's having a 406 point HQ that does it all, demolishes MCs in combat, blocks all of the enemies psychic powers, slays eternal warriors outright, fail all of their armor saves but pass rediculous amounts of invulnerable saves, and ALWAYS make their points back.
Whats it for you?
Grey Knight Terminators.
Just that. They are just beautiful models, and the reason I started playing Grey Knigts in the first place.
And after that, the fast everybody is toting around Stormbolters.
And after that: Assasins
Tyranids Win / Draw /Lost 
Daemon Hunters Win / Draw / Lost 
I'm all about the models..
Among the most appealing in the 40K universe..
And the appeal of playing the closest to 'good guys' that 40K has
Im gonna sound like a broken record here, but Im also gonna throw my vote in for the amazing models. All grey knight models, espically when painted just right, look stunning. And, again, the terminators are what got me looking at grey knights in the first place. Best damn models in 40k, hands down.
All that, and I just straight off hate daemons.... grrrrr.....
I also started playing because of Grey Knight Terminators and their cool look...
Daemonhunters are badass because of they fight Evil Daemons and slice them like cheese!
I love to play them because of the LRC+GM+Retinue combo - I can kill a IC/Walker, a vehicle and two enemy infantry units in one turn?? What?!?
The Shooty INQ Lord which is jus freakin wrong again opponents that don't know whats hit them.
Lastly the tactical gameplay involved needed to win!
Team up? On my side you mean?
I might write like a ork but i fight like a poet.
Some one tell me they have ever seen a nightbringer die from a Nemesis Force Weapon.
Yah so maybe my story is a bit sad.... My income tax came in and was like 700 bucks... LOL... So like the night before I got the money I was watching exorcist.... And then I watched some knight movie, I can't remember what it is called...
Anyways, I went to the GW to pick myself out something nice for my nids, Figured I would get 1 or 2 monstrous creatures, seeing as how it had been almost a year since I had been in a GW or looked at stuff online and well... LOL.... I ended up spending 600 bucks on grey knights cause I saw they reminded me of a combination of the movies I saw earlier the night before and the idea was just so cool I had to do it... Total impulse buy. heh, but it turned out to be a good purchase and I didn't regret it.... I got all my PAGK vanilla, which was a good thing. I only got 5 terminators, and since have yet to expand on them, and i got 3 dreadnoughts. It was nice.
Anyways yah, the models are cool, but I just like the idea of having warrior priest knights who can kill the butthole out of daemons! DIE DAEMONS DIE!!!!!
Plus, I have always seen the imperium as the bad guys, and I see the inquisition as even the most evil parts of the imperium, and thus I see grey knights as some of the most evil models in 40k. All the other guys you know, they're just doing their thing... BUT NOOOOOO!!! The inquisition has to get all judgmental and stuff and condemn them and fight them... LOL Yah, I like playing the bad guys, and the real evil bad guys.... The inquisition!!!
Judgmental? Judging evil is JUST and PURE.. Purging the Evil is HOLY and Sanctified.
Without the Imperium the forces of Chaos would have destroyed the material realm utterly long ago. The Inquisition fights to keep the Imperium alive in the face of insurmountable odds. They are the ULTIMATE underdogs... (and gimped with a 3rd Ed Codex too! )
The ultimate BAD GUYS? that would be Dark Eldar.. zero redeming features there...
(poking Gobbo with the proverbial stick)
Lol but they have only see things white and black. For them, there are no grey. And anyone who judges JUST and PURE without seeing the grey area and considering it, lol are more evil then the evil they judge upon!
Plus, me and my older friends have discussed this on hand. If the conversations were more recent, I could give you good examples of why we desided that the imperium are pure evil.
Anyways, lets not derail the topic. I have my opinions, and you have yours!
So anyways, yah, good stuff!
I'm gonna have to back Goblin up here. The Inquisition is about as "good" as the Spanish Inquisition it takes many of it's cues from, and the Knights are the pinnacle of their "benevolence". I think the most diplomatic term you could apply to them is "righteous".
Not that any of that isn't cool or anything. That, and those terminators......mansechs.
