Firstly, what sort of an army do u want, cc or shooty, but i'd start of with a core of two 6 man marine squads and a normal chaos lord, then add to it with stuff like oblits, raptors, chosen, havocs etc. :a

Chaos? go with Slaanesh or Thousand Sons, the other options suck anyway

if you want a shooty tough to kill army with lots of magic go thousand sons, if you want a well balanced REAL shooty and great closecombat army, go slaanesh

there now choose :D

There are a couple or three trains of thought here.

First is a good outlook, "I like the background material, their combat philosophies are interesting and I would like to collect this army"

Second is likewise good, " I like the look of the miniatures and either like the background or can live with it based on the fact I am impressed with the minis"

Third is a bit dubious, " I will get xx legion of death because they have 0wnage troops and I will be able to beat everyone I come across with them whether I like the background or miniatures or not "or worse still "I will get the Ninja pawnage uber soldiers because they have good stats but I hate the background so I will pretend they are different soldiers entirely just to suit my own fickle amusement and whether my oppos like it or not!"

Think what you want your tin men to do and be and what you want to get from the hobby. If you like the minis and the style of an army then you can learn to deal with the rest in my opinion. If choose just based on 'ninja pwnage' whilst hating your minis and stories then that is bloody hard to fix - and all the time your friends will be learning how to deal with rule pimping and crack but spray undercoated troops and be in love with their artwork aswell.

Pick what you would love to be and what you would love to work with and the rest will fall into place.

Death Guard= Survives lots of firepower
1000 Sons= Also surviving lots of firepower, cost more pts, but can use a lot of magic.
Emporers children=Specialised weapons, good all round.
Khorne=COMBAT!!!!! :lol:

lternativly you an go for the renegades and the lesser known legions- ie.

Black Legion can use all four cults (plague marines, bezerkers)
Alpha legion attack from all sides with stealth
Word bearers can have a daemon army
Iron warriors cannot be matched with shooting, and can tak ebasilisks and vindicators
Night Lords are the fsat guys, and can take tons of raptors.

The pyre, warp ghosts, Steel Cobras, violators, extinction angels, children of Purgatos and the sons of malice are all renegades that have turned chaos since the horus heresy. The damned company of lord caustos is just a company of marines, and the red corsairs are space marines with red lines on ,showing thier allegance to the ruious powers
