Default tau or chaos?

I am considering which army to play as, chaos or tau, several of my mates don't want me to play tau as "there cr*p" so objective opinion on the matter would be appreciated.

Play Tau. Introduce them to Stealths and Ionheads... business end first.

Laugh at their inferior choice of armies.

EDITED: Wargamer, you of all people should know the rules -S

I'd say go with tau. You can test out new things from the new codex that you may have questions on how to use them, or if they are worth the points. Also play tau cuz your buddies don't want you too!

"They don't want you to" has got to be the greatest argument here.

Make their worst fears come true... unless they honestly thought tau were no good at which point you'll make them eat their words when you level their army from afar

.Meh, their not so bad... Trust me on this one. I had a battle with someone using my Khorne, completely massacred him. The only model I lost was a single Lieuteant. So we switched armies. When the fighting was over, I had three tactical squads left and I think a Librarian and a Dreadnought and the Khorne were all dead. Khorne aren't unbeatable but then again no army is .

Minimal-cover Tau vs Guard is not necessarily to our advantage (you'll be wanting your lucky dice for 'who gets first turn&#39 but its a very quick and nasty (and downright fun) shootout.

When the sandy dunes of Kitchenfloor III call, you really want some of those broadsides and stealths around.

Okay, Wargamer got this off to a bad start and having to remove a few slanted views on this one. Enough to say that no army is worse or better than any other. you just have to find one you like and go with it.
