neither they both suck
ive been thinking about starting a new army for a while know and it would either be an ork army but i would have to think of an origional idea for them or a witch hunter army with lots of emphasis on suffering and pain alot of models will skeletons hanging and corpses but im not quite sure thought you guys could help
My vote it for Witch Hunters just because no one plays them.
I'll get run out of town for this suggestion, but if you want a cool themed WH army I'd recommend going completely without Sisters of Battle and making a list based on a fluffy Inquisitor Lord and apostate Priests -- lots of Stormtroopers and forces of the Ecclesiarch such as Arco-Flagellants, Penitent Engines, and Exorcists. This is exactly the list that I play, and while it's definitely not one to bring to the next Grand Tournament (i.e., it's not very competitive), it's very fun and fluffy.

- 2000pts Inquisition, 2000pts Vostroyans, 3000pts Vampire Counts, 1400pts Daemons, [WIP] 2500pts Death Guard
yeh but im not sure id like so many metatl models
but the inquisitors and petinent engines are awsome
Orks - Mostly plastic models, fantastic fluff as well as the Witch Hunters, much more universally competitive army, updated for 5th Edition (Witch Hunters due for an update at some point, and so less useful now / more outdated now, and due for an earlier re-write than the Orks, which might render carefully built and painted models irrelevant or useless).
Strategically, it is wiser to invest in an army with the greatest shelf life left. Due to their 2008 released codex, tons of new plastic models and more on the way, that's the Orks. Alternately you could spend a lot more money on a less attractively modeled Witch Hunters army, spend the same amount of loving time crafting it, only to see it rendered very different in 2 years or so when they get a re-write.
Plus, Orks are far better supported in supplements like Apocalypse, which opens up even more potential for cool conversions and such (I <3 my Big Mek's Stompa).

I too say orks, for exactly the reasons MVBrandt stated above. Besides, orks are da best!
Wrong forum, and you certainly don't need a poll for this thread; it'll just get bumped to buggery
well what do you like more burning stuff and laugphing as it breifly runs around on fire screaming, or swamping the enemy in wave upon wave of choppa swinging 7ft green psyco's.
