Well I've been looking at it and they do seem pretty interesting. I'll make sure to remember them since I've always thought Tyranids to be weak kinda but I'll read tactics about them

What else would you guys say is another good or better CC army

Point for point, flanking genestealers are the best you can get, imo, but World Eaters are much more versitile, and can hit just as hard if they get the charge. Since you are new, I would reccomend WE, simply because they are stupid-fun to play, have some great fluff, and can stomp most things in CC.

Well I know some things already since I've read up a lot and my friend play too so he'll help so now all I really need are recommendations for a CC army.

Ive also look a lot at World Eaters and they seem the best in CC but still need opinions.

Also I look at Necrons for CC but not quite sure about them

Out of all the armies, aside from Tau, Necrons are the WORST in CC.

Ha never mind then. Well Genestealers and Berserkers seem like the best CC so far

How about GK or Black Templars or any other armys

GKs are awesome, but only if you are good with them, hehe. I know absolutely nothing about templars however, aside from how the get a free move when they are shot at or something.

It depends on what you want and need from your army, If you want to have a high save army take Khorne or Black Templars. If you want a mass amount of units take hormagaunts, and if you want flexibility Storm guardians with enhance and a avatar, the fleet helps them get in cc fast too.
