Alright, So I recently jumped back into playing 40K and began with DE, as it was my original army 10 years ago. Surprisingly I got use to playing them quicker then I anticipated. Anyways, I'm looking at picking up a DA army as my second as I love the background for them, and why I played them also 10 years ago. However I know they have a older Codex, so I am curious how competitive are they?
Most of the stuff that they can do, some other codex can do better. That said, they did just get a new FAQ (literally, it came out today) that gave them several badly needed advantages. Deathwing and Ravenwing forces for them are both decent, as are hybrid lists involving the 2. Conventional wisdom is that the best DA list is a Deathwing/Ravenwing hybrid force, but I actually disagree with that, especially post-FAQ. Right now I'd say that a pure Deathwing or pure Ravenwing army, properly built, would be a very solid thing indeed.
