I prefer the Skaven and Dark Elves.

The Skaven have a really rich background about how they came into existence and the fact that very few people know about the skaven being around they are a lot like the boogey man, entire villages have dissapered overnight after a skaven raid with no evidence to show.

The Dark Elves are the ultimate fall from grace, The book about how Malaketh turns to evil is cool and every unit has an interesting backstory. My two favorite are the writ of iron and the floating citadels. The writ of iron allows a minor dark elf to be a noble or represent a certain name but if they should fail the iron is melted and poured down their throat. The citadels are run by the coursairs and it's an actual tower that sails the sea!

Beastmen are intimidating, savage and horny Although they are dedicated to their cause the cause is chaotic and they dedicate themselves in a rather chaotic way.. Their aggressive nature (and battlefield tactics) appeal to me and to be honest, I think their (the whole race's) attitude towards all things impresses me somewhat..

On the other hand, I like Asrai, Asur and Tomb Kings for pretty much the opposite reasons Asrai have some of the savageness of the Beastmen but the Tomb Kings and especially the High Elves seem totally detached from such distracting feelings. They protect order, their domains and their families/riches. They are civilized and they have a certain..finesse The Beastmen still own them all, though
