Make sure you keep an eye on the rumours about the upcoming GK Codex (or whatever it ends up being)...some current Units might not be in it, so no point in wasting money, although it is still 5/7 months out.

That said some more GK and a second LR(C) wouldn't be amiss..but GK will be plastics when the new Codex hits. I know I'll be selling some of my GK(T)'s to get some plastics, well if they're great minis that is.

Me..I would wait personally.

oh my god o.o the only reason i wasnt going to play DH's was because they are all metal and their codex is anchient XD
(though i think they will combine WH's and DH's since they are basicly all the inquizition and half the units are the same in both dex's anyway)

Anyway... @ the OP
i would listen to Hobo, but also your list seems very very small GK's are fine, but their troops are complete point sinks, then getting Termies is even more point sinks :3 GK's are like the best (and most expencive) basic troops in the game, with Stormboolters and Nemisis Halbrids (Basicly makes them S6) as stock

Invest more in basic GK's imho

List is too HQ and elite heavy. You only need 1 HQ and add more troops.

I would give rhinos to the grey knights so they can actually make it to the objective.:victory: My friend plays GK and I always kill them early because he doesn't use transports.

GKPA can not take Rhinos due to dedicated transports rules. That is why your guard shoot them up.

This isn't a 'legal' list, Officio Assassinorum Operatives are 0-1, you need to turf either the Vindicare or the Culexus (which you should do regardless imho). Vindicares are nice, use hem to take out the power weapon sergeants that will be a massive threat to you troops. the Elite inquisitor will die easily, unless you have something particularly fiendish planned? (although I'm not aware of any wargear in Daemonhunters that are particulary useful). The points you save from getting rid of all these characters could be used to beef up your PAGK units, which is a good idea, or maybe buy another fast attack PAGK unit, giving you some of that teleporty goodness, and some backup for your termies. Teleporting termies frees up the LR for a PAGK unit.
