OK well first let me say sorry for this topic and its uber noob leetness. Ok now thats over with let me begin my rant.
well actually i don't think i have a rant to rant..anyways heres my dilemma..i am brand new to fantasy and table topping in general and i just picked up the brand new rule book for 50 USD today so i can have some background and all the rules...now i have narrowed it down to either woodies or chaos...now ok i think the chaos(hordes of...) look really awesome and cool and i really like them also i was going to make a nurgle army so the painting would be allot more easier(on top of the fact that it was originally easy to WE since of the more basic brood body aspect)...but i really rather now just have full brute force and no strategy and so forth and i really like the tactics and gameplay of the WE, i also like the fact that in a way i would be a total underdog because WE or so hard to play especially as a beginner..and i like that...but unfortunately i really dislike most of the WE mini's and on top of that from what i have seen it is pretty hard to get a good looking one, compared to chaos..so yeah im so confused...
also as a side note(VERY IMPORTANT!!)
OK well i just bought the rule book(54USD) so now i have around 450USD now what i want to know is with paints, the army book, and minis how big of an army would i be able to build(point wise)...with either of the too. Also if it matters just for referance i am able to buy the army book here (US), if i decide on what army i am going to play....but i plan(it depends though) on probably buying all my minis and paint once i get to london so IDK so many thing to think about...i just want to make sure i will have anough money for liek a 1k army with all the paint or whatever..well sorry if this is confusing please help me...
im really starting to think picking fantasy over 40k was a bad idea since there obviously isnt as big as a scene and not anough people on forums play it enough for me to get help quickly like beginner 40k players...mannnn
Secondly, I don't think it's quite clear what you're actually asking us. Maybe if you rephrased it a little better, and made it more reader friendly, we might be able to help you more =)
I can only speak for myself, but I usually go straight to the armyspecifik fora, which might be why you don't get quick answers here. Also you might want to wait a little more than 40 minutes before expecting an answer... (edit: argh, the maestro beat me to it)
Anyways, I don't play 40k, but I love fantasy, and from what I heard (my brother plays both) fantasy is a much more tactical game.
As for the army, choose whichever appeals to you the most, thats all the advice I can give. If you like both equally you could start out small with both, but I'd advice against it, as you would only be able to play small games. And for 450 USD I think you could get a 2500-3000 point army pretty easily. 2000 points is where I think it starts to get really interesting, as this is where you can use your Lord choices, and get an impressive army on the table.
Hope it helps, if you've got more specifik questions ask away. I play Vampire Counts though, so if you want to know about chaos and elves I suggest you go to the army fora.

@ stonehambey-Im sorry for my eagerness and i dont know what my problem was last night i was just feaking out. So please except my appologies for this. Also after i eat breakfast i will try and re-phrase it for all to read better.
@skillett-your idea about the army specific forum was one that i was thinking myself. I also appologies for my eagernes it was quite selfesh of me. Also thank you for you reply to some of my questions, especialy the point count one, i hope that your estimates are correct.
