What I mean is if you play Eldar in 40K do you play High Elves in WFB? If you play Chaos Marines in 40K do you play Chaos in WFB?
Me I only play IG in 40K but if I was to play WFB it would be Empire.
Nah not really... at least not me.
I play SM, Tau and Orks in 40k and want to play Dwarfs and all the three elf races in WFB.

I only play Marines in 40K, which I guess would be 'vanilla' considering that I play both of the human races in Fantasy, but my main army is the High Elves, and while I've toyed around with the thought of playing Eldar, I can't bring myself to do it. Same goes for Orks, I have an extensive Fantasy army waiting in the wings, and I intend to start Space Orks once I finish my current project.
People play whatever appeals to them. In fact, some of the armies don't relate to eachother at all when they cross systems (I'm lookin' at you Eldar!)
I play Lizardmen in WHFB, though I liked the whole imagination of the Tyranids. It was the Greater Good that had won my hobby heart
And now I'm finally unleashing my dark side with Chaos Space Marines, with my own legion called the Dark Knights (corny, I know, but the name sticks )
Space Marines and Dwarfs? That's kind of a parallel. Both are the heavily armored, low-model count, elite Heavy Infantry types, I suppose.
That's not as glaring a parallel as Orks-Orcs or Eldar-Elves.
WHFB: Dwarfs || WH40k: Imperial Fists, Necrons || WM/H: Trollbloods || BFG: Necrons
Come to think of it, I suppose I am.
My 40K armies are Eldar and =I= Guard, whilst my WHFB armies are Wood Elves and Empire.
Though my new OK force does upset that balance.
I prefer evil armies 10 to 1 in whfb-- but in 40k my eyes are drawn to marines ; merely because I see alot of simple customization options with them.
I play VC/DE in fantasy and have not yet started my marine army -- and havent bought any minis yet so Im still up in the air as to what Ill pick in 40k but likely grey knights /marines
Interesting topic this one, I've never really thought about the crossover all that much!
As for me; I started a Tau army ages back, which has sort of fallen by the wayside when I started a Vampire Counts army. I actually specifically chose a 'Darker' fantasy army because of the Tau being perceived as a somewhat 'less-evil' force in 40K
I have a Sisters of Battle army in the works as well, though it's a somewhat distant project at present.
So, Tau, Vampire Counts, and Sisters of Battle. Maybe I should mention my Vampire Counts army does feature primarily female characters, though (so I guess there's some genericism there!)
I have High Elves and Orcs & Goblins for WHFB, and the beginnings of a marine army for 40k, so I don't really pick the equivalent races in each game like some people might. In fact, one of the reasons I decided to get a few marines for 40k is because they're quite different to my FB armies instead of going for something similar to them. Space Orks don't really interest me, though I do like craftworld eldar, so you could see a parallel there with my High Elves. But if I were to collect Eldar it will probably be several years down the road.
Thou shalt remember:
Warhammer Fantasy armies do NOT have Codices. They have Army Books.
