For me its less about fluff and planning more a case of getting a good base starter army cheap and then building it to suit my playstyle adding whatever I feel like painting.
I picked up my empire army for about £12.00 because someone misspelled empire on ebay. The rest I had lying around in my bits box it was just a case then of finding the province that suited the troops I had.
A lot of my armies come from me painting a model that inspires me and it slowly expands into an army.
