Well i finidhed space marines and want to make a new army.
I want an either all cc or all shoty army.
so for now i can pick
Im leaning towards tau but ork sound cool to.
just go for orks man, those people always have a blast playing 40k, win or lose
I'm using my tau for the first time today, I'd go for them, they usually decimate enemy lines. What's more satisfying than wiping out entire CC squads before they even have a chance to claw at you?

Tau: 4/4/3 - 50%
DaemonHunters: 1/2/0 - 33.3%
Dark Angels: 3/1/0 - 75%
I dunno, I don't think you can really say any particular army is better than another... It depends on the player, the game, the opponent, etc etc, there are so many variables involved no one can just make a statement that such and such army is the best because it always kills the other guy.
I'd just go with the one that you think will be the most fun, just decide if you like hand to hand or shooting, or some of both and then pick the army that seems like the most fun - I mean that's what hobbies are all about after all,
Orks - more hand to hand, but can do some shooting
Tau - shooting
IG - shooting, but can horde troops for effective hand to hand (note, requires a lot of models and a LOT of painting)
Whenever someone asks me this question, I always tell them to choose Orks.....
Forget that. Why not buy some Grey Knights? They rock at C.C. You can buy a few Terminators and ally them with your existing SM army to get the feel for how they work and their wargear. Then, when you have enough, throw in a taste of the Inquisition and you'll have a whole army. You can then take some of your favorite SM units as allies to your new Daemonhunter army. Stay true to the Emperor!!!
tau is my biased vote, they look awesome and have good firepower, especially with their railgun

Ok yet again I have to say this. Its not what the other people like, its what you like. Just go to Gamesworkshop, take a Firewarrior box, take a Ork Boyz box, and a IG guy box. Put them next to each other. Take a look at each box for about 5 seconds, your gut should tell you which one you like better.
But anyway, if you like the Tau then go for them. Personally I like both Tau and Orks, but like you, I would lean towards the Tau. The orks are awsome in close combat, but dont expect to attack first. You usally dont have to worry about Moral Checks, as you pass them auto if you have 12+ guys in your squad.
The Tau. A lot of shooting, nothing for close combat(Kroot...Cough). Thats the only disapointment that I have with the Tau. Once they get into close combat, you stand no chance. But anyway they rock at shooting. A hammerhead that can move 12 and still fire its Railgun is nice. Or it can stay in one place and fire about 5 weapons! The battlesuits not only look awsome, they are awsome. They can move 6 out of cover, than in the assault phase, they can move back into cover and not even get shot at! There is a lot more to tell but, I dont wanna keep typing, Im lazy.
Actually you cant have an all shooty army cus all models(i think all)can when requred fight in CC but not all can shoot, genestealers RT OOE etc
