    well first off TAU are the worst in HtH sure there suit can hold up in HtH but they wont get the same options chaos have. They can maybe outshoot chaos though. Chaos can shoot(Iron Warriors) and can fight(All the gods except tzeecth).And chaos just have more options then TAU. I would play chaos

    Yes, Tau are horrendous in CC, except for farsight. Though if you start a farsight enclave army, then u can put up an ok fight in hth combat. Also, playing Tau needs more tactical skill. Chaos are all around good, so you dont need that complex of a strategy. But Tau are relitively fast and have the best weapons by afar. Base weapon for FWs is a str 5 ap 5. The Railgun is str 10 ap 1 (the best gun in the game) and its twin-linked on a broadside.

    you forget one thing though, Tau are twice as cool
    Pros: Good looking models
    Devine firepower
    Fairly mobile
    Can outshoot basically any army
    Rail is great vs. expensive units w/ thick armour, as well as orks/guardians/IG/&#39;gaunts/any other "strenght-in-numbers" type of unit. Ion cannons deal w/ marines and such
    Easy to paint, but can still be extremely sex0r.

    Cons: not very versatile (not as much as tyranids anyway)
    sux0r in Hand to Hand combat
    they don&#39;t get as much attention as IG or Astartes (= fewer models)

    Well, that&#39;s about it.

    If you can paint good then play Chaos but if you cant pant all that well go with Tau. That&#39;s not to say a good painter can&#39;t paint an awesome Tau army but when you finish a Chaos army you&#39;ll be proud. Then again "For the Greater Good". It&#39;s all opinion.
