I can think of any given alien race to add but, the whole point of 40k armies and races is that they add something new, a tactic, a style, and i cant think of anything off the bat that isnt already included in the universe and fits.

Surely the Ultramarines must lay claim to being the best alien hunters in the Imperium as they have the most experience in dealing with them (I forget which Ultramarine Company has their heraldry specifically focused on the tyranids, I remember their trim was purple...could have been the 7th company).
