As the title says, which armies do you like to play against with your Daemonhunters? Which armies do you dislike to play against?
I like to play against Chaos Daemons as they are our arch-nemesis and we get to finally use our wargear and special rules.
I like to play against Orks as I like to incinerate them. It's also usually a David vs Goliath type of game in which the couple of times I've played against them, I've been heavily outnumber by 4-5x (220+ vs 45, 100 vs 22).
Even though I don't like them (who does?), I like to play against Nob bikers as they are a true challenge and forces me to bring out my best lists.
I like to play against Chaos Space Marines as they are so varied in their playstyle. Every game I'm not quite sure what to expect and have to change my tactics.
I don't like to play against Tau because they force me to Raider-spam as that is the only way I'll get close to them. It's pretty predictable with my Knights laying the smackdown on them (though I don't think I've played truly competitive Tau yet).
I don't like to play against Witchhunters because they tend to incinerate me. It's very hard to get them all out of their transports. On the other hand, with their melta-spam + exorcists, they don't seem to have too hard a time getting me out of mine. I have to admit they are a challenge to play and it's usually an uphill battle for me.
I don't like to play against Dark Eldar. They are just plain nasty...and their codex are older than ours!
I'd like to play against Eldar, especially fast eldar. Only done so once, but not with my Daemonhunters.
I'd like to play against mechanized IG. I normally play mech IG, but I have yet to play against them (though I have played against footsloggin IG before).
I'd like to play against 'nids. I play nids myself, but I don't normally encounter nid players in my area for some reason.
I havent play against that many armies, but i really hate tau and CSM. Tau just suck at my GWS because we always play spearhead and when you are 72 inches or more away it really hurts with a hammerhead. CSM i just cant seem to kill either which kinda pisses me off.
Orks i love playing, my favourtive part against them was when i blew up a building with 30 ork boys in it, to me they are so easy to kill.
Nids are a little iffy, i play them a lot but sometimes they are tuff some times they are weak.
dislike dark eldar,eldar,'crons*,guard,orks,nids
*sometimes i like sometimes i don't
with DH I love to play Orks. it makes me feel good that my Crusader, and squads of 10GK's can hose and walk around all day long.
they're one of the few armies that don't necessarially have a lot of big armor, which is a weak point for DH.
I also like to play nids. esp. Nidzilla. psycannons and high Str CC attacks, can make for fun games.
I hate seeing Dark Eldar, Tau, and I would probably hate seeing a well executed WH force. Chimelta and Demolisher heavy IG lists are also unpleasant.

To be quite honest it's all from your perspective.
One armys i really wouldn't like to come across anytime soon is 24 Bloodcrushers with CockWeaver,it looks broken on paper for the simple fact everything can't be instant killed,you have a 3+ save,you've got re-rolls on all your invun saves due to CockWeaver,they're T5 which means your basic weapons are going to stuggle,they all have 2 wounds and are S6 I5 on the charge with 8x + charge = 32 attacks at S6.
Your psycannons simply don't work since you've got to rip though power armour etc....
Only things i can see stalling that is Dreads,and they won't last long before they've smashed half your army.

The guy at my shop hates anything with lots of armor but than again it was his choice to play a pure list for modeling/painting reasons.
Check my Blog for Battle Reports, useless ranting and more! Comments appreciated.
Like to talk Warhammer or want some advice on Armies or Tactics? Drop me a PM!
Fast mech, and mech armies in general. Anything that Bolters can't kill, basically.
