Not quite as the title suggests, but what i really mean is what makes them so likeable to play?
What do you like best about the army, minis, background, etc, etc?
I'm tossing about an idea of starting a small army of pure"ish" daemonhunters (mostly grey knights) and i would like to know why you guys started playing them, what their major good points are and so on and so forth.
Any help is greatly appreciated. Ta
It the models for me mainly, they are some of the best GW has ever made.
The fluff and what not come second to that for me.
Well I play Daemhunters because my first army was tyranids. In third edition they were a horde army that each unit had an idividual rule that they could do, and that was it. I started Daemonhunters because they are an elite army, where their basic troop choice can accomidate most roles (everything except anti-armor). They also use assault weapons instead of rapid fire weapons which increases your tactical flexibility. Also after painting what seemed like millions of gaunts it was nice to only have to paint 35 guys and be ready to play 1000 points with some models to spare.
Umm... hmm lets see
Terminators are my favorite model in the game
Made from the Emperor's geneseed? 666 trials needed to pass? Hunters of Daemons, impossible to corrupt
S 6 in CC?!?! The shrouding? No minor psychic powers to b used against them? Psychic hood built in? true grit stormbolters. WS 5.
Elite of the Elite
A good change from a 75 model army that i used to have (it was only 1000 points of orks)
I just love them in every way.
O, i play pure grey knights, so when people say DH i forget about everything else... sorry.
i just dont find inquisitors are good (no matter what you do, theyre still human w/ S and T of a guardsmen). Daemonhosts arent worth giving up grey knights in my opinion. but if your going to be using SM's go ahead! theyre cool and add flavor.
Daemons shall crumble before my might!
Why I went:
~ When I beat an army that outnumbers me 2/3/4 to 1, all I have to do is grin. Don't say anything, just grin, they feel ashamed to losing to us, since *many* think DH are terrible. Feels great to win with DH :yes:
5th E Sand(Grey) Knights: 11-3 (retired) 5th E Eldar: 37-4 (retired) 5th E Wolves 5-0
the bonus's against chaos daemons why else not to mention whatever opponent has to make a leadership roll to see any of them , plus phycannons kick ass

really, because they are the only branch of the inquisition that makes any sense. Witch hunters hunt down psykers in the name of the emporer (the emporer is a psyker.) alien hunters just pick on other races cause they can. also, grey knights are cool models, and in Fantasy, i play elves, so i decided to get an elite army in 40k.
Not really. There are two types of psykers in teh game. the first are Dark psykers, like chaos, and of course most of SP. The emporer is a light psyker, meaning he can draw his energy purely form the warp, without any risk of getting his head blown to pieces (which is what happens to normal psykers when they fail a psykic test) .Originally Posted by Falamin
Daemonhunters are fantastic models, great in CC and have great fluff. All in all my favourite race. They also have power armour, and are S4, T4.

Would you experienced Grey Knight players say that they are tactically demanding? I have a Death Guard so i'm used to not fielding a huge amount of armour anyways.
Amazing models. They look like, well, knights.
Amazing fluff. Not one member has fallen to chaos? Bad asses, every one of them. Seriously, these guys story line is awsome.
Stats. The best of the best of the best. Cost a ton but if played right are worth every point.
Armor. (this one is just me, but I really dislike tanks and transports, they clutter the board and take away from the battle in my opinion, Dreads and other walkers are the only armor I like) Thus, DH are perfect for me as you can field an army with only troops and dreads.
Like others have said, you can field a full sized army without breaking the bank. Also the small number of models means you can take the time to do a really great paint job on each model.
Tactically, well I don't really know what to say. They're flexible in the fact that GK's can do everything well. you don't really say "Well that squad is for CC, that squad is for shooting...". The hardest part to deal with is the lack of anti-armor, limited mobility less you wanna drop a ton of points on a LRC, and limited numbers. If that doesn't give you pause then, no, DH arn't to tough to play then.

The only honorable options left to we combatants is seppuku or semantics...which amount to the same thing really.
