I've have played 40K orks for a while now, and i would like top branch out into fantasy, i have spoken to my friends who play fantasy, and they have explained some of the rules to me. I have looked through all the armies, and have brought my choices down to either High elves, Dark elves, or Tomb kings. i do not have a huge budget, so i preferably want an army where i don't have to spend a lot getting it off the ground.
Any advice is welcome and appreciated, thanks
IMO you've picked some of the toughest armies to use in FB. All these armies (Khemri especially) will require a certain finesse to use.
Not sure what you should opt for though, what appeals to you the most?
Good luck to you!
Tomb Kings are pretty worthless unitl you are playing 2000 plus, so they are not a good starting force. If you want ot go straight bang for your buck why not play chaos or ogre kingdoms? Any way I play Dark Elves and they are very do-able on a budget and pretty straight formard to play. Just make sure you download tte rules updates, some point costs of major troops got lowered so it changes you army list dratically. I would imagine High Elves are much the same and they are set to have an army book update later this year, so you could get some new stuff just as you have learned hte rules and are ready to get a bigger more advanced force.

Okay thanks for the advice, I think DE are starting to appeal more to me now
The army book was reprinted with the changes so you don't need to worry about downloading them =)
TK doesn't appeal to me personally. The no marching thing makes them less maneuverable than even dwarfs. They have great magic and fear-causing, unbreakable troops, but VC is a better undead army as I see it, raising new troops and all. To me, TK is basically an undead army that gives you chariots, war machines, monsters, and archers (all of which are lacking from VC) but at too great a cost with no new troops and no marching.
DEs or HEs would be better, but again, I'm just one of those people who really dislikes TK.
