sry, but i just can't make up my mind! here is what i am looking for:

something fast, but not at the "lets charge everything and see how many we can slaughter once we get there" armies (i.e. ork freaks or 'nids)

Shooty/aussaulty not so much preference

leaning towards:
blood angels
tau
chaos (most legions other than black, too boring)
dark templar

thanks, anything you can add would be great! even if not on list, what should i play (absolutly no eldar, necrons, or space wolves though)

If you want something REALLY fast, play Saim-Hann Eldar Craftworld, it's a jetbike army :D Even if you don't want an eldar army, they are a very good choice if you want a fast army.

White Scars Space Marines can also do the job, they are fast and hit really hard, but are not as shooty as an eldar army.

There is also the Night Lord Chaos Space Marines who can fit, they have an aditional Fast Attach Choice if you drop 2 heavy support. But they don't have a lot more special rules...

I also recommend White Scars, but disagree on the shooty part. They can be VERY shooty if you hook em up properly (Remember that every SM bike has a TL bolter on it), you can take a LR if that's what you want (Though it IS a bit expensive for WS). Also attack bikes are VERY shooty......

You can do Iron Warriors. They are the chaos and Space Marine guys from hell for shooting and Iron Warriors are also great in CC. Just the problem is they are a tad slw, but their stats are great to stand against alot of punishment.

my complaint about white scars is that they sacrifice too much fighting power for mobility. is there an army that is not based on speed but can move at elast some models fast and still put up a good fight in an all out bloodbath?
what do you all think of tau?

The rules for the white scars can be found in a White Dwarf, I have it, but I just can't find it <_<

The Emperor's Children would fit too, they are pretty shooty(sonic blaster str4, pa5 assault2 or heavy 3) and are very potent foe in hand-to-hand with their warpscream(-1 ini to the enemy in cc).
