Default Best Melee Army

Hey I'm kinda new to 40K my friend got me into it and I've read a lot about the history and everything pretty much on different sites about 40K. So I was wondering which army is the best for melee since I love that and the challenge of a hard army.

Some ideas I've got so far are

Gray Knights
Black Templar
Space Wolves
Khrone Berserkers
Orks
etc....

ps. If any where I can buy besides GW a little cheaper would be nice too

Have you had a look at Tyranids? Genestealers are phenomenal... Brilliant base statline with crazy initiative! Loads of attacks and rending too. They can come in from table edges and even be given preferred enemy for minimal cost.

Personally I think they're one of, if not the, best CC troop choice in the game.

Actually I haven't. I think I'll look at them more but they look like they have no armor save like Orks which is kinda why I dont like Orks that much ha
