I too would have to say Tau. They have long range weaponry that will cut down boyz left and right. Plus, they are fast which translates to them being able to jump in and out of buildings, get out of close combat, and get out of range. As one of the shorter ranged armies in the game, I, as a Ork, am always hard pressed to defeat a well put together Tau Army.

Define "stompy"?

"Stompy" = walks over us in CC, or just "hardest to beat for Orks"?

Cowards? Tau? No. Not really. They just know what they`re good at.
I wouldn`t call an army that is playing to its strengths "coward". Against IG, the average Orks don`t hang back and try to outshoot Guard, no? ;D

Just out of curiousity and perhaps being tad negative what is the point of this post other than to argue and put down other races. I see this post easily turning into a flame war.

Yes, in some way this is a "Which army is better?" sort of topic. :P

Regardless of the merit of the topic (or lack there of ), I'll throw my two cents in.

The army that always stomps on my boyz the hardest would have to be the blasted Guard. Their ability to field a ton of armour (which current (old?) codex Orks just couldn't handle) and sit back and just shoot the hell out of you is just a tough nut to crack. I'm not sure if it's just me, but I cannot handle fighting tanks with my Orks. They just roll over me, Bolter sponsons rattling away and Battle Cannons belching death. Oh. And that Exterminator. Don't get me started on that beast. :

Grumble grumble grumble...

I'd say Eldar at the moment. The Orks received more than a hefty overhaul in the shooting department, and if my math-hammer is correct then a Shoota Boy squad is now point-for-point the equal of a Guard squad in a straight-up shootout, something the previous codex couldn't mimic. As insane as it sounds, this game makes it possible to use Orks in a fish-of-fury style manner versus non-MEQ opponents, driving in trukks and delivering hails of shoota-fire. Just keep a Big Mek around to make sure everything is survivable.

The problem is Eldar are mobile. They've got firepower that can wipe out squads in the blink of an eye, and nothing makes a 30-Boy squad drop faster than a well-placed Doom spell followed by a mix of shuriken catapult and scatter laser. Without the choppas, orks will be cut down by heavier squads like striking scorpions, and that Big Mek can be easily had by a simple Mind War.
