I was originally going to play 40k, but a bunch of my friends in other areas are playing Fantasy, and I kind of like the fantasy theme more myself. I have three big questions and a couple of smaller fluff questions, and I'd appreciate any help that this board can provide.
My first question is, do you think the Ogre Kingdoms army is a good one for a beginner? I'm new to both the game and painting, and while I've done a little of both, I'm not terribly good just yet. I was thinking that maybe the larger ogre models would be easier to paint, but they might also show mistakes more glaringly. I also don't know how forgiving such an army would be in the hands of a new player. I know alot of this is hard to figure out since the army isn't released yet, but I don't know alot of the rumors as well as others.
My second big question is how much I should spend on characters? I know the focus of the strategy is on troops, but the system seems different to 40k, which is what I've been playing more of. Along with this question, how much magic do you want your average army to have?
My third big question is, what's the best way to find a place to play near you? The place I started going to closed last month, and I don't know anywhere near me that has gaming in it.
For my more minor questions, I have a couple of fluff questions. Mainly, what is an ogre? Is it a seperate species like a human or elf or orc, or is it an offshoot of humanity that evolved or mutated seperately? Also, is a dragon ogre related at all to an ogre, or is it just a name thing?
I suggest that you invest some of your money or borrow the Warhammer Rulebook.
Then Read About The Armies just to see what you would like to do.
I personally can not stand orcs =/.
Another Question you had was if you could find a store. Yes! go to Games Workshop and look around for the store locator. There you can search for a place near you.
Painting is hard for mostly every army.
Good Luck to you,
The "ogre-mutant-offshot" theory is a widespread argument, and I have yet to hear confirmations for or against it.
Dragon Ogres are their own species (i think) they are a half-breed of drakes and ogres who sleep in the mountains. The are awakened by lightning storms, and lightning is what keeps them alive and makes them grow. They are naturally immune to the negative effects of being struck by lightning
The larger ones are centuries old and are called dragon-ogre shaggoths.
I kill two dwarves in the morning, I kill two dwarves at night. I kill two dwarves in the afternoon, and then I feel allright. I kill two dwarves in time of peace, and two in time of war. I kill two dwarves before I kill two dwarves, and then I kill two more.

Thanks for the replies
The Ogres aren't the only army I'm considering, but they're the one the least is really known about, so that's the only reason I'm asking. I had thought also that if I spend a bunch of time on one big model instead of several tiny ones it might make painting my first army less tedious.
Regarding points for characters, I ask because I often see people spend half their points on four characters in say a 2,000 pt. army. This is something you'd probably never want to do in 40k from what I know. Also, I often see in Fantasy army lists people give dispel dice and power dice counts for their army, which is why I ask about magic users.
I tried using the store finder as suggested (cool little toy by the way), but there's nothing within fifty miles of me, anyone have any ideas?
If there is no gw near you buy online . sometimes it is cheaper and dont get more than 2 characters get a spell guy and a skilled sword or bow guy.
