    New to warhammer fantasy

    I have a couple questions as I have been an avid WH40K player for 4-5 years now. I am thinking about starting a WHF army and would like to know what a "good" starter army is. I am not interested in the bretonnians, or the dwarves. I have been looking at Tomb Kings (challenging I hear) and the Dark Elves (look really cool IMO). I wouldn't rule out Orcs/Goblins, and I could see myself playing Chaos (beastmen) also. Could you guys break down the pro's and con's of each of the armies listed? I have also listed specific questions about each army below:

    Keep in mind, when I ask for "good" units I just need names and numbers, not explanations why. I can get the explanations from the rulebooks and forums. Short and sweet please!

    [1] Tomb Kings - What are "good" units to get? (I have read they are hard to play, which actually attracts me to them)
    [2] Dark Elves - Are they out of print? I can't seem to find any "new" items on eBay. And, what are good units to get?
    [3] Out of TK, DE, Orcs, and Cbstmen, who would be the easiest "learner" army?

    Thanks in advance everyone.

    All of the information that you need is here: (Warhammer Fantasy Army Selector)

    If you want army specific info (very basic) follow the links at the bottom of the page.

    Hope that this helps.
    The iron crowned is getting closer,
    Swings his hammer down on him,
    Like a thunderstorm he's crushing,
    Down the Noldor's proudest king.

    Under my foot, so hopeless it seems.
    You've troubled my day, now feel the pain.

    dark elves and tomb kings are more advanced armies.
    beastmen are midway.

    if you want cool models and a challenge when playing, look towards tomb kings, dark elves, high elves (hardly anybody i know can play them properly), peasent bretonnia (expensive due to amount of models).
