I would wait for the new air rules.  Shouldnt be too long and has the potential to change the way we build armies.

If I had to decide right now I would probably get some scatt bikes, psykers, and swooping hawks/warp spiders (aka some sort of aspect formation to compliment DE.  Lots of room for different combinations with so many aspects)

A set of walkers could help too, they go great with DE. Just make sure you magnetize all the options.

Yeah, I'd wait till the new air book comes out just to see if it's any huge shift in the meta.

Other than that, definitely get a farseer or 2, at least 2 units of bikes(scatter optional), some swooping hawks, and vaul's wrath batteries.

All of those work well supplementing DE. If all of DE are a hammer, then vaul's wrath batteries are their anvil. T7 vs shooting with 48" guns at 30 points per gun + crew is a really good price.

If you consider that a normal guardian is 9 points, and you get 2 of them with each artillery gun, then you're only paying 12 points for a T7 gun with 2 wounds and a 3+ armour save that also makes your guardians T7 vs shooting. I tend to use them in units of 3 vibro cannons, purchased in multiples of 2 with 1 attached farseer for each 2 units of 3 vibro cannons. Then I take the guide and prescience primaris powers, and twin link both units all game, which basically makes them put out 3 S9 AP2 pinning hits per turn, per unit. I generally place them so that both units are scoring the same objective in my deployment zone, and overwatching as much of the table as possible.

If you give them a good cover save, killing 1 unit of them via shooting becomes similar to trying to kill a wraithknight. They don't have FnP, but they have twice as many wounds.

They are talking about the Death From the Skies supplement that has new stats and ways of playing with aircraft.

I don't know whether to hope for a new codex, or a new supplement. I feel like the new supplement is more likely to come sooner, but the new codex is really what's needed.
