are you asking which is the best worth?

or are you asking to pick army for you?

Some people play to win, some people play for fun. Me? I play to kill toy soldiers.

Old IG battleforce was awesome

New IG battleforce is horrible.

Do I want a command squad and a sentinel or do I want leman russ. Do I really need to think about that one.

Yeah, the old IG battleforce was awesome.

I think the Tau one is pretty good.

You actually can make a legal army out of the box.

You get two units of troops, a dedicated transport, and two elite units, one of which can be used as your HQ [the crisis suit]

Except in the Tau box you get all of those crummy (non shooty) Kroot.

Nah they are shooty, those staves they have are guns. They also have old timey styled pistols. One shot every ten minutes is still shooting XD
Still I'm swapping them out as soon as I can, unless they seem useful. Tau battle force also doesn't come with the jungle terrain for the Kroot anymore >_>

For the Space Marines and Orks, it's way better to get the Assault on Black Reach set than the actual battle force.
