If you are interested in follower and armor mods then I think that nexus has the better selection to choose from (imho). Here are the best companion mods:

As for armor mods, just take your pick, there are loads of them by now.

That being said, there is nothing stopping you from using both the steam workshop and the nexus at the same time.

Thanks very much for ur help !!
I prefer the workshop since all I have to do is click a button and my mod is automatically installed.

yea but now i look on the Nexus its got a much wider foriety of mods.

The reason why the nexus is better is because when you have mods that are really large and change many aspects of the game, such as perk trees, npc AI etc. you will need to place the mods in a correct loadorder. Having the ones that change the most stuff last. (MODS CAN AND WILL CONFLICT WITH EACH OTHER).

Their are also mods that use SKSE scripts witch expand the way the game works such as the in game inventory and power viewer. these mods need to be installed correctly, another problem that occurs is that when a mod auto updates and you haven't disabled the scripts its running it can make your save game useless.

so its kinda impossible to have the better mods on steam.

PS: using armor mods and weapon mods here is pretty much the only thing i do.

nexus allows for more controll over your mods and a wider array of mods, workshop installs the mods for you but have a smaller spectrum of mods.

in the end i use both

p:s Nexus also have a Modmanager that works for near all Bethesda games, and it allows you to remove mods the workshop mods seems like they are simply removed out of the load order when you *remove* them in workshop
