I try to have an idea in mind that provides some purpose to my army. For example, my Dwarfs are an expedition that travels by ship, more or less an army of explorers. It has a "captain" in the form of a lord, as well as a few runesmiths, armored units and slayers. This emulates a sort of ragtag force, but still a coherent force. Then the story and fluff is solidified from there

That sounds a good background story, I would imagin your any would hold a good amount of rangers and crossbowmen

like Einherjar667 says it all starts with a simple idea, for example my High elves i center around my favourite model which is the wizard, and then i come up with a colour scheme, and a reason as to why they may not look like the traditional high elves, maybe they just wanted to separate from the elves empire who knows... it has happened before. then from there i work out where in the world they would live, and how they got their, their purpose, how they survive and possibly thrive where they are. etc etc and from there is born a story.

High Elves: 3/2/0
Wood Elves: 0/0/0

Being new to warhammer I started by just throwing any old list together. Since buying Abaddon I centre it around him and the Black Legion. Every now and again a different HQ steps in while Abaddon has a day off.
