Hey everyone now that I have mychaos and ork lists done I'm thinking about a third army to maybe a get a troop for or some to make a third army this summer I was wondering what army best contrasts orks and chaos so I get another style in my arsenal. Thanks
Dark Eldar, though they do get some pretty nice CC units.
Tau. A gunline is pretty much the opposite of Chaos' close range then CC mess.
Yes, I did deep-strike your sister...
Necrons : W-8 D-3 L-7 (Sleeping in their TombFoam, waiting for a new codex)
Chaos Forces (CSM/CD): W-42 D-19 L-28
Apocalypse Games : W-4 D-0 L-1 (4 Titans, Brass Scorp, 3 Baneblades, 2 Bombers, 3 Fighters, and a Partrage in a Pear Tree)
im thinking Tau
Could also try gunline guardsmen. Got a few more choices for variety in terms of what works. Plus you can paint them up to match your chaos and use them as "renegade" IG until such time as our dreams come true and we see an update to Lost and the Damned and the other legions
*edit* Also, IG recently got a codex update, so unlike Dark Eldar or Tau you don't have to worry about half your units changing so much you wouldn't want them anymore. At least, not until sometime after next edition.

Wargamer Haven, my little cyberspace blogspot.
If your like me I went from Nids to Chaos, then onto Imp. Guard as a change. But I did not go normal guard. I like all their cool tanks so I went Armored Battlegroup. Lots of shooting, fun tanks to build, you don't have a 100+ models to paint and movement is easy.
I play chaos, nids, and space marines. If I were to do a 4th army, it would definitely be Eldar. They have a much newer codex than their dark brethren, and also are a different playstyle than chaos. Plus the models are beautiful.
My brother plays Tau, and as of 5th edition they are pretty much on the crap side. The new stealth rules really screwed over a lot of Tau units.
Hope this helps!
I'm firmly in the camp of the dark eldar. They have a cool playstyle and are fun to build and paint. Also to make good looking models its a lot of fun for conversion sake (the wyches are so aweful to look at).
