Default Some thing new

So I have played tau for a bit but Now I want to kill some thing in close combat ( and maybe ally them with my tau) what army would you think I need? I mainly fight dark eldar and space wolfs.

Why not Chaos Space Marines? I hear they work alright with Tau.

I know little about it though... since why any Tau player would want to do anything but shoot is beyond me.

If you're up against dark eldar and space wolves you need not so much an attack force (it'll just lose with that little available points) but a defensive close combat wall. The meat shields extraordinaire (Orks) could do it.

Tau are allies of convenience with pretty much anything that moves.

This^^^ made me lol

If you want a assaulty specific unit, go for orks or the like.
if you want some meatier units that can handle assaults, take some SM allies... not only are they pretty good, but if you have enough points spare, you can always grab a chappy and an assault squad, some sternguard veterans (read as: evil pricks) for good measure.
