whats a good way to use a daemonhost?
"Let the galaxy burn!" Horus, in the Istvaan V campaign.
Just personally, there isnt.
I much prefer to go puritan, BUT, here goes.
Daemonhosts are unpredictable and they dont have to roll for their physic powers (though they can be nullified), but the fact of the matter is that they are combat orientated type creatures.
Personally, i would combine them with an inquisitor lord (all tooled up and with a retinue), followed by a number of death cult assassins and a member of the Officio Assassinorium, with IST as troop choices.
But the best way to use them is probably just to get them into combat type situations....thats my advice, though i am unsure of its level of expertise as i very rarely play with daemonhost as i much prefer the GK goodness,
Well, since you can't use Grey Knights with them, I'd go for plenty of Inducted Imperial Guard support as well as some Death Cult Assassins and an Eversor. That way, you have plenty of Infiltrators to tie up your opponent's shootier squads and enough heavy weapons to put a dent in your oppoent while he's otherwise occupied.
Also: Daemonhosts can always Deep Strike. If you use IIG, then you can add the Improved Comms upgrade to one or more of their vehicles...so, not only can you DS your Daemonhosts in any game, yopu also get to re-roll their Reserves dice so that they don't spend the whole game off-table. Toss in some Inquisitorial Storm Troopers with a Teleport Homer and you get some very fast, reliable Daemonhosts.

That being said (and i agree fully with Inquisitor Solexus)
I prefer the prescence of Grey Knights over daemon hosts anyday.
It's up to you though,
I tried them couple of times, usually I just combine WH and DH if going for the hostes, but I wouldn't use them for there could be potential, just to have a good laugh at what there potential could be and either see them fumble it totally or see the opponent being totally ammazed with what just happened
