Been playing since 3rd edition, I started with The Angels of Death book, and had both Blood Angels and Dark Angels. Took some time away just before 5thEd came out, got back into over the last 2 years, I have a 3000+ Dark Angels army (almost a full company + Deathwing) I have a 1750 pts BA jump pack list, and I have about 1500 pts in the dreaded GK!
As a former marine player I always used to shun any of the Eldar races, as I thought them too weak for the style of tactics I used. ( Anvil and Hammer stuff). I played a friend with a VERY sharp DE army, and I have always loved the evilness and darkness of the DE, I was throughouly outgunned and thouroughly out manouvered, which I considered to be a feat not easily acheived these days, yet there I was being cut apart piece meal. Most of my games are against horde armies or power armoured foes so the idea of being outflanked and then shot to pieces piqued my interest a little more. I LOVE the new model range, some of the sharpest models I think GW has ever done, and I love the fluff behind them, but the best thing is their speed! I look at being the Archon of a DE force as being a surgeon. Knowing where to strike and striking it hard before your opponent can react, being able to dictact the rythm of battle, and imposing your will on him, due to your mobility is a very desired quality. I see the DE as a scalpel and in the hand of a veteran general, it can make the flesh of your enemies sing in agony.
