Default New start

I either want to start an imperial guard army using mass troops backed up by there tanks but maily troops I hope the first rank second rank fire will dish out enough shots that my opponents can't save em all. Or a tau army using all units to the best of their ability.

Any and all feed back would be great

Tau are pretty rough to use right now. Hopefully the new codex will correct it.

Rumors are sixth months. Could be sooner, could be later.

I would defently recommend Imperial Guards.
It has a very good codex, with lots of options.

It is also possible to play as foot slugging as infantry is dead cheap.

In my normal 1500 points list I normally have about 80+ Infanty (this include heavy weapon teams) and 4 tanks (1 Chimera for my vets, and 3 Leman Russ of different types).

It is a good and fun army to play.

Imperial guard work well with either LOADS of troops or LOADS of tanks.

It is like nyds. So many hordes, so much moving\time. My buddy would go and get food or drinks when it was my turn to move my models. So silly.

Actually I'd say Vanilla space marines aren't doing to well at the moment, last week I say a coupla of squads of fire warriors + hammerhead + stealth suits + crisis suits kick the crap outta a terminator army.

IG are very versatile, if you have to start now go for them, if you can wait a few months though Tau should be getting a new codex. Also IG are expensive money wise because you need so many models to make up small points armies
