My little brother ( wants to start, and I was wondering what would be a good army?
(Easy to paint, easy to play, easy to build)
He likes models that are black, (meaning black templars, black tau etc.) He also likes the steal legion models.
Thanks a bundle.

The Black Legion (Chaos), perhaps?

Thats a good question my brother is seven and i am gonna get him started in Ultra Marines becuase they are farely cheap and easy to play. Or try Necrons there they look kewl black and little kids like them, and there nice and easy to play.(but hard to master[thats for all u necron players]).Now I gotta figure out how to teach him!
I would say to avoid imperial guard, they are not a forgiving army to play. necrons would probably be the best choice. the look good in shiny black, and can afford a few mistakes when playing.
Necrons because he will win with them probably more than any other army while he is just starting out, helping him along to staying in the hobby more. They also dont have many options/wargear to have to look at and pick from. They look pretty cool in black and just a simple base coat of bolt gun metal(one of the easiest paints to lay smoothly on a black undercoat).
I would put Black Legion next mostly because the little 'uns usually like the bad guys more then the good guys. They are probably the most varying armies in the game and one of the cheapest($$ wise). He(or you) can tailor them to be shooty or cc or a nice mix depending on what he wants to do.
I put black templars last because they were the good guys, but they follow most of the same stuff as the black legion things listed above.
Hi dude, let him collect necron. Cheap and easy to paint and yep you got it they will alot.
Like alot of people I agree on Necrons and If you do, he decides on necrons you can PM me your e-mail or his e-mail and I will send you some backround on necrons if you need some. O another good thing that hasn't been said is that Necrons have the best backround and fluff (thats what I think anyway.)
Thanks for the help, he wants to do black templar, thanks for the help filnger that helped a ton.

No problem. Good luck.
Ok, he's going to do to Guard, (He changed his mind.) I tried to convince him not to but he's convinced. Any idea what he should start with?
O & G: 5/0/1
To start, just get infantry (unless he's going for a tank or roughrider army).
The bigger the box, the better. It'll be a better deal because he's going to need all those men.
Oh, and tell him he's nuts.
And over there we have the labyrinth guards.
