Default Starting a new army

Howdy folks, just looking for some advice and thoughts on the plan I'm throwing around in my head.

I have a solid tyranid army, but it's not fully built, I've found myself a bit bored of building and painting the models, I have bits of exocrine, tervigon, carnifex, hive guard etc, littering my room, I also have never actually played a real tabletop game of 40k (have a couple fantasy under my belt). I was thinking about starting a new army to try and revitalize my passions for hte game, when I first got into it I loved building them and painting, it was a good outlet for some personal problems I had been dealing with.

So my question is, what would you suggest I do in regards to all this?

I was contemplating 3 maybe 4 possible armies:

1: Salamanders Space Marines, I love green, I love fire what more could you want?

2: Chaos Space Marines, as you can tell by my name I like pirates, Red Corsairs would more than likely be my army of choice. Blood for the Blood God, and Nurgle saves make me smile.

3: Tau, pew pew pew pew pew pew pew pew missile barrage... I like artillery.

and possible 4: Necrons, oh I'm sorry were you trying to kill me? too bad, and the ease of painting silver models.

The key factors I'm looking for are, easy to build, fast to paint, that way I don't get bored before I have an army ready to play.

I think I would like to aim for something like 850-1000 points to start with. I want to get something small going then get some games under my belt to really revitalize myself for the game.

Let me know your thoughts on everything, good or bad I welcome feedback.

Thanks in advance
