I totally agree with cap and also suggested smaller games. I find 1000pts a nice easy game to play normally a couple of hours max and easy to collect and paint having 2500pts to paint in one hit is daunting 1000pts normally takes me 2-3 weeks to paint. Like cap says get some smaller games under your belt if you have friends and your in UK. The battle brothers games each have 1000pts and play as a team are great way of learning and having fun I have Been to 3 now doing a new list each time first time finished 58th last Time finished 19th so you improve quickly
