Guard, imo.

As for shooty, do you prefer long range, close range, or armor?

As Wuzrrzappa said it,s hard to say what you should get since we don't know what you are looking for...personally I would go with a mechanized Infantry brigade (lots of chimera, sentinels, no tanks) but this is me and my vision of my Gue'vesa. But i can hardly impose my view on you.

The question I guess we would need to know is What element are you looking for in your second army...you want it to be shooty granted, but what else? How differnet do you want to be from tau?

I would go for 1k sons as they look a lot cooler then guard (that's a biased opinion though)
plus they get ap 3 bolters.

unlike my Tau i want good armour. i also want to put them in a place and i want them to STAY ther until i want them to move.

so far Ksons have appealed the most to me as they have 3+ armour 4 or 5 + inv and whatever i get for being in cover.
that way ive got a save no matter what ^^

guard would be kool because of all the tanks or all the infantry lined up in the infamous "Guard gun line" w/ heavyweapons platoons and large blocks of guardsmen stormies and also cannon fodder in the way of conscripts.
they also have the coolsest models other than Ksons.

i wouldnt mind space marines though, as thats alot of infantry w/ good weapons BS WS and can hold they own in a CQC fight.
i wouldnt include tanks just Devastators with lots of rockets and Hvy bolters.

I must recomend witch hunters, as I myself am a witch hunters player. Witch hunters have very effective close range firepower, and they are much more durable than the guard.

I would vote Witch Hunters simply because we can induct Guard, Space Marines, or Daemon Hunters.

Witch Hunters are pretty good for variety.

i should get deamon hunters because they got armour, shooty and you could combine with IG and if this is to much expensive i would go thousand sons combined with chaos IG

I say go with nids. Surprisingly they can shoot alot . Also the army have a lot of templets as well.

my current nid army can out shoot my tau army. The only problem is that most of your good shooting is 18"-36" although standard troop fire is 12".
