This depends.

Are you planning on starting an army? Or are you comparing these two lists?

Thats a bit more helpful.

Lets see, will this be your first army?
Do you prefer to specialiase in close combat or shooting?
Do you like the idea of waves of charging beasts, or are you more interested in a smaller more elite high tech force?

You need to elaborate on those slightly as well.

A lot of tyranid armies have a barbed strangler and a venom cannon, and a lot of Tau armies have Kroot. What else do you want in your army?

Oh, and you may get a biased results for this, because it is a Tau forum.

To add to the list of questions:

Are you more interested in the gaming or the modelling side of warhammer?
Do you want an army that can always win, even if it is declared cheesy/beardy/unfluffy? Or one that you will have a good game with, and not care about winning or losing?

i like iether or, i like LORD OF THE RIGNS cause if its gory fight scens, but the elites are cool to so hmmm im more of a gamer than a modeler, and the fact is, i dont like kroot, so my tau would be hard pressed in HTH combat, so i think im gonna go with tyranids, but if i could get crisis suits with swords on em ohhhh baby! kinda like o'shava...

*panting*
Dude, its called a period, it looks like this----> .

Anyways. back on topic. If your a new player, I dont reccomend tau too much, as they can be tricky to play.
Also hormaguants are cool.

Trim the slots a little, or trim the strip. One way or another, you can get them to fit.
