Default Help with decision for a second army

So lately I've become a little bit tired of the green menace and want a change. Aside from the melee stomping I also love ranged tactics with battlelines full of guns that riddle down the enemy from afar. Right now I'm equally interested in SM, Tau and Skitarii. I think all models look nice and am just wondering how do their ranged-orientered armies differ and what is their ranged advantage? Which is "most" strategic?

Most hard hitting: Tau
Most strategic: space marines
Most badass looking: Skitarii

I suggest , if i may, a nice shooty marines list (Iron hands - 1500 pts) allied with a small group (500 pts) of Skitarii. If you feel like a boss, trow in there an Imperial Knight.
This way you have a super fluffy and themed army, good-looking models and not to be underestimated at 1850 - 2000 pts

Ok so what can de Iron Hands uniquely do? I've read something about Clan Raukaan having something to do with them.

Feel No Pain (6+), or +1 if you already had it. All Vehicles and Characters and vehicles with the Chapter Tactics (Iron Hands) rule get It Will Not Die, and Techmarines get +1 to Blessings of the Omnissiah.
You are looking at regenerating vehicles, extra resilient infantry and buffed techmarines.
They have a strong link with Mars, so fielding with them some rust stalkers or skitarii in general feels good. Also well complemented by an awesome imperial knight.

I'd go for CHapter master on bike with shield eternal, power hammer and artificier armour (2+, T5, 4 wounds, 3++, 6+ Fnp, it will not die....) 5 bikers honour guard with gravguns & narthecium, then some tacmarines with plasmacannons with TL lascannons razorbacks, maybe a unit of three dreads with tl autocannon and the skitarii as you like

Thanks dude! Sad to say but I think that the Slaneesh Prince is thinking about sacrificing you right now for being a traitor to the traitors @@!
