I would say that it's a good army, if you have some experience with the game and know the basics. If turns, psychic abilities and the general flow of the game isn't a strain on your memory, then it can be a fun way to play the game.
Speaking from experience, I started out with Chaos Space Marines, which I collected and played for about 6 months. After I got the basic of the game down and had a decent flow, I switched to Daemons as I could now remember all the warp storm stuff, the gifts, the psychic abilities and whatnot. I would have been completely lost if it was my first army, as it has so many things you need to remember, beyond the standard game.
It depends on the player methinks - I know players who still gets confused about things to remember in the standard game after years of play, and I know players who just feels at home in the ruleset after 3 months. If the player is good with the rules, I would definitely say yes.
