As much as we all love death korps of krieg I recomend something else because DKoK are exspensive and once you start collecting but find you dont have enough money then you just wasted 280 UDS for 40 men, you dont have and army and you could of started another army with that army money you just flushed down the drain.

your going to need that good luck from general D

If you don't have alot of 40k experience then I would suggest not starting off with DKoK, their quite hard in all aspects of the hobby, Modelling/Painting/Gaming, You can use them as a standard guard army, just using the Death Korps models with the IG codex rules, using the models to represent them (Grenadiers=Stormtroopers etc.)
Alternatively you can buy IA 5:The siege of vraks and use them as a siege army, this is a harder army to master but can be quite fun and is fluffy.

As the other 2 have said it is quite expensive, there is a strong rumour that plastic GW Death Korps are being released these will be alot cheaper. If you really can't wait then you could always try these: http://www.pig-iron-productions.com/order.htm# (Thanks to Cadaver) You can use the kolony militia heads to convert plastic cadians.

Hope that helps you.

Death Korps are Regimental, in order to create an army list, you'll need IA:5. The book will cost you $70 USD or 38 if you live in the UK. The models themselves are beautiful, but soon enough will start to leave a hole in your wallet when it comes to buying them.

If you're starting Guard, I recommend starting Cadians, they are cheaper. A squad of men (10) from DK will cost you 32, not sure for USD, but for Cadians, 18 (again not sure for USD), for two squads of ten men! If you've already started Cadians but wish to move onto DK, well, good luck. ;D

They're like a depressive version of the Armageddon Steel Legion, similar in appearance but different in battle doctrine.

The rumour I've heard (from a usually very well informed source) is that they're going to bring out a plastic Guard kit with great-coats that can be made into Valhallans or Death Korps-esque troops.

Should be cool, and might make this army a distinct possibility. Unfortunately my source also said that the plastic sprues will be more expensive by then as they have plans to reduce the number of men in a box without dropping the price by much... wouldn't surprise me!

Anymore you just about have to buy them model by model, at $4.50 apiece, thats $45 for a squad. In addition you have to purchase the modeling putty to convert, and you get better models at of the Forge World ones for roughly $65.

DKoK are not reserved to the IA series of books. Check your codex, there are doctrines that can be used to represent them. Also, take note that the IG codex (and the Death Korps of Krieg doctrines) was released long before Forge World released IA5 & the Death Korps models.

Although, the IA5 DKoK list has much more character then the doctrines alone.
