Default Newb-Friendly Novels

Greetings, good people of this forum.

Would you mind recommending me some novels/short stories for someone, whose knowledge on the Warhammer Fantasy and W40K is based only on playing Warhammer:Total War and Dawn of War? I find the setting quite fascinating, but I don't want to get lost in the story by not knowing basic facts. Also, I'm looking for novels set in both settings (though it seems to me they're intertwined in some way - pl0x no spoilers if there are any regarding that! :D ), not just one of them.
I realize there might have been some threads similar to this one, but I didn't manage to find any in which people asking aren't that much unfamiliar with lore :/

This would be a good place to start: iv only read the first 3 but theyre incredibly good books, They follow Ragnar from before he was a Space Wolf and all the way through

Theres a few Dawn Of War books aswell, but theyre apparently pretty poor (have them but not read them yet lol)

Theres the Horus Heresy, which is just HUGE, and not just when it comes to lore and how it shaped the Warhammer 40k universe, theres 42 Novels, and god knows how many novellas, audio dramas, quick reads etc etc

The Beast Arises is another good lot, reading them myself at the minute

Few more books which I really enjoyed
Flesh Tearers by Andy Similie , it includes Sons of Wrath, Flesh of Creatica, Trials of Blood which are just damn awesome lol
Storm of iron
Talon of Horus
Angels of Darkness

Great, I think I'll start with the Space Wolves then, thank you :D
What about Warhammer Fantasy? I've read that the Sigmar trilogy is first as far as the setting's chronology is concerned, anyone mind confirming this?
