I think it all depends on what you want from your army, now I am not a CSM player so I may have a few points wrong, but...
Black Legion - Undivided - The "Vanilla" army, mix of all units.
World Eaters - Khorn - Blood and Skulls, The Close combat army
Thousand Suns - Tzentch - Sorcerors, dark magic, and higher wound models
Death Guard - Nurgle - Death, Disease, high toughness troops
Emporors Children - Slanesh - Rapturous Pleasue, Noise Marines
Iron Warriors - Undivided - Lots of Vehicles and heavy units
Night Lords - Undivided - Fast Attack army.
Alpha Legion - Undivided - ???
Word Bearers - Undivided - Fallen Chaplains ???
At first you should collect a black legion army. That way you can have one squad of elite of each god if you wish to. No special restriction and it can be a really strong army. You get all the daemons too.
Take a lord and 2 squad of 10 CSM with a champion each, equip them with a plasma at least (I like to had a flamer to that too). Had at least an havoc in there too with 2 Missile Launchers, an Autocannon and a Lascannon and you are set with your army core. The rest is experimentation.
I learned that Khorne Berserkers are one of the best Close Combat unit in this game and that Nurgle Death Guards are a real annoyance with their Toughness of 5. Slaanesh Noise Marines had some fire power to your army and Thousand Sons have 2 wounds and their champions are all sorcerers...
You can make your army so it fits with your style of play and then you can make a more specialized one. Nurgle and Khorne armies are really popular and tough to beat. Iron Warriors are all shooting and Night Lords are all fast attack/CC. Read the book, play with a black legion army for a while then add a squad of one of the god to see what they can do on the map.
yes collect an easy army then maybe when you get better a thousand sons.
