From getting caught up, I think I'll go with Chaos Space Marines or Orks. I'll probably decide which later (I'm looking for a mix shooty/melee army with good vehicles) and ask about my choice in their respective subforum.
Chaos Space Marines have some really nice new models (specifficaly the Death Guard and Thousand Sons) and are pretty decent codexes as I understand. The Orks should be getting a new one soon so it's up in the air how they're gonna turn out.
I'm somewhat familiar with Thousand Sons, but I don't know much about the Death Guard. What are they about and how do they play?
Death Guard (Patrol Detachment in progress)
-Lord of Contagion (Assembled, awaiting primer)
-2 seven man squads of Plague Marines (Assembling)
-1 Myphitic Blight-Hauler (unassembled)

Most of their units have a rule called "disgusting resiliancy" were they ignore wounds on a 5+, making them quite hard to kill with T5 plague marines. They can give out a lot of debufs and I believe ignore heavy weapon penalties soemwhat.

Drawbacks are they're quite slow, lacking in range and for a lot of normal chaos units (like bikers) are only in the Chaos marine codex so you'd need that as well.

What do you mean? As in what resources can you use to learn the game? Terrain? Painting?
