im going to collect a new army now i just fin my necrons and im wondering the pros and cons of chaos space marines and tyranids
Chaos: Highly customizable. No, really, they are... They can do anything game-play wise that any other army can because there is so much internal variation. Just build a basic army to begin with and then you can claim they follow this or that deity and add in a couple of minis for special stuff, but the core of the army typically stays around the same (so you can build a much larger army with more variation within it than... well anyone).
Tyranids: Awesome space bugs! What you can have about 6 carnifi, and tons of little gaunts running around to take damage. Great if you like monstrous creatures, not so amazing at shooting, some of the best for hordes and combat. A fair bit of variation, but they still never beat any other army out on shooting (they can shoot, but there is just only a tiny bit of it there). They have the easiest miniatures to paint. All you have to do is prime them a lighter version of whatever flesh tone you want, paint the carapace whatever colour you want that, throw some spots on it if you want, then dip them. Awesome look for little effort.
Either way they're awesome armies, but I'd say Tyranids if you like big cool bugs who are flipping awesome, or Chaos if you like the idea of really never needing another army again.

Seriously though. We don't generally encourage threads like this on LO.
It's better to look around and see what resources are available for yourself before posting a very generic topic like this.
But a big thank you to everyone who has been kind enough to help this young man in the mean time.
