Default New Army

I was thinking of starting a new army but cannot decide. I was thinking Marines, specifically Salamanders, or Eldar. All suggestions are welcome just leave an explanation if you don't mind.

I don't know an awful lot about eldar so:

Marines
I like marines, they are good all-rounder army with plenty of options and vechiles (drop pods being my fave) They are a good, solid army to choose.

I've got dark angels and started an eldar army. And like the great shaper said marines are a good allrounder team which is fantastic if you want a straight forward army easy to use and fun to paint.

Elder are great fun to paint and play with if all the elements of the army can work in sync

I will probably go with marines, I will ask the guy at my local GW about Eldar. Any other ideas other than marines and elder? Btw I am not a new player just in case you were under that impression. Thanks for the replies so far.

I was also considering getting a new army, but for various reasons, I would rather not have any of the Imperium factions. What is the most competitive non-IoM faction?

Off the top of my head Im thinking Orks or CSM but that may very well be based on only really knowing 1 Ork player

Depends what sort of army you a looking for: horde, elite, shooter, close combat or an all-rounder.

I am sort of looking for something that focuses on shooting but has a couple of close combat options, or maybe an all rounder, not to sure. But what do you mean by elite?

Btw I am not very good at making descisions as you may have guessed.

Elite armies (as I like to call them) are generally quite small compared to other 40K armies but have better troops with much more upgrades. I like these sort of armies very much, Grey knights are a perfect example.
