Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it a little unfair that the storm shields of the space marines are much, much better than those of Deamonhunters? You can only use DH SS against only 1 target and only in close combat and it only provides 4+. THe SM, on the other hand have 3+Inv and none of the restrictions of the DH's.
Is there any FAQ's, erratas, or whatever out there that update our SS or are we stuck with some crappy shields? Oh well...if not, then i guess on the flipside, our force weapons really kill everything whereas the SM force weapons only cause Instant Death.
Yes, we are stuck with the crappy shields for now (probably a looong time until we get a new codex). We also have Assault Cannons that are mostly shooting cinnamon rolls at the enemy, Teleport Homers we can fram up and hang on the wall, Inquisitors who somehow managed to break the Machine Spirits of their Land Raiders and didnt bother to fix them and a few other stuff that are just silly and poor compared to new stuff. All of this which GW could easily fix with an FAQ.
BUT we also have Force Weapons that no one is immune against, our Chimeras have 2 fire points, Land Raider Crusaders that can always fire their Hurricane Bolters, unlimited range on our Psychich Hoods and other stuff that are just the other way around.
No, the FAQ fixed the GREY KNIGHT Land Raiders bought as Heavy Support options. The Inquisitorial Land Raiders (bought as transports for Inquisitor retinues) arent fixed.

It all depends on who you play with. In our gaming 'circle' we take the latest rules for piece of wargear and use it for all armies that use it. So a Force weapon for us causes Instant Death as per the 5th rule book. We take Landraider rules from the new Space Marine codex.
For us it doesn't make sense that one Imperial Army would have different rules for the same piece of equipment. It also saves a lot of hassle as to what armies have what rules etc......

Up to you really. Officialy you use you DH dex but many people don't have a problem with letting you use the new rules. Its really because if you wanted to use the new rules you would have to buy two codecies which is wrong.
I hear and I forget, I see and I remember, I do and I understand
Success is the ability to go from failure to failure without losing your enthusiasm.
There is one advantage to our Storm Shields. They count as CCWs. However, it doesn't give a bonus attack to a model wielding a Thunder Hammer since it states in the BBB that one must have two THs to get a bonus. I know, small consolation.
Yeah, most of the people I play with, don't think it's a problem if I would use the Space Marine rules for the Land Raider for example. In the end, it's all about having fun. So I say, screw the rules, and have fun
We're thinking about mind controlled Tyranids, who have been hijacked by Eldrad
Just to give you an idea
Tyranids Win / Draw /Lost 
Daemon Hunters Win / Draw / Lost
