well, my friend runs a pretty tight DE army. Raiders, Wyches, an INSANE HQ, lots of Splinter/Lances, Talos(s), etc.
I usally play plain IG, but i'm expanding my DH army to be able to stand on its own (with inducted IG of course), and i use DCA/Eversor/DHost. but the big downside of these units is that altought thier Ini is 5. that doesn't help when you run into an Ini 6 DE...
should i resort to what i do best, shoot them all to hell? and just use my Elites to assult his warriors? but my army doesn't have nearly as much firepower as my normal IG...
should i throw my assassins to the wolves and charge them into the wyches/HQ?
should i wait mid board, in terrain, hoping to strike first due to cover?
should i abbandon DH and just stick with IG? :shifty:
thx for any thoughts.
the one catch about DE is they are VERY light armored use this to your advantage by useing your imps to form a gun line with las cannons etc at the far edge of the table with your heavyer storm troopers in frount of them and then death cultists, deamon hosts, cc quisse, assasian(prefereble eversor) and just let it rip try to down raiders as fast as possible with lots of fire and hope that you can make the bulk of his army foot slog it towards you. a few units might reach you ahead of his main force (if you can kill as many raiders as you can) these will most likly be warriors , whytches, hellions and archons (if hes on a jet bike) antoher option is to get grey knights with st 6 they ignore some the wytches effects in cc and will mash them up nicely.

[16:20] <@Kaiser-> He usually is.

Not to into either IG or DE but since DE are, as has been said, light armored, why not drop the high-str low-ap slow-firing lascannons in favor of heavy bolters or the like?
DCA's tend to only work against initiative lower then theirs, since they are few in numbers and really fragile. if you can't throw them at low initiative units, don't field them at all.
If you field Daemonhosts, you can't use GK's so you can't solve any assault's that way.
The only other DH units that may be usefull are assassins(eversor, perhaps callidus) and inq's with shooty retinue. everything else probably won't help you =/
my 2 cents, for what it's worth.
Use an Inquisitor with a pcycannon, 2 sages, 3 warriors all heavy bolters, and an acolyte with maybe a storm bolter or artificer armour.
FOR FREEDOM, FOR HONOUR, FOR BLOOD
Personally, I think you put too much into your Elites. Keep the Daemonhosts, they'll still do damage. The DCA are probably points better spent elsewhere. The Eversor, not exactly sure how he'd do. Just don't load up so much on Elites when your Troops do a lot of damage to DE.
aka just play normal guard. well ... it's what i do best.
as for the shooty Inq. the problem is i don't want/have one (or even think they're worth the points). :hmm:
seriously, i have a hard enough justifying IG heavy weapon squads.. but a shoot inq squad is just a big juicy target! too fragile and too expensive!
Take Meglo's advice. I would say keep the guard and the stormtroopers, keep the close combat inquisitor and the daemonhost for a counteroffensive in h2h. Definatly switch the lascannons for autocannons or even some heavy bolters.

I'd say that you are also using "Witch hunters." Put in some inquisitor, and include a Callidus Temple Assassin. That will kill his "Insane" HQ (and mabe make him go insane)
