To start off, never played a game of 40K before. I have been playing WHFB for a while now and looking to get into this for the flexibilty of being able to play either game at the various game stores I frequent. I would find this much better than calling ahead to find out if it is fantasy night and i can play, or 40k night, and can't.

Anyways back on topic. I have seen the models for DKoK, and decided that for nothing else, would love to collect and paint these models.

That being said, is this a legal army? Are their lists accepted for tournaments and the such. I ask, because of the Rhinox issue in fantasy.

As for codexes, what should I get? I have seen in another post the IG codex as well as the IA5 book.

I appreciate your help.
