Some quick tips to help you get started fairly easily with stuff you will use. For the Circle player I would suggest picking up
Shifting Stones, plastic heavy kit, druids of orboros, gorax.
The shifting stones and gorax will be in almost any list you make in Circle, while the druids give you a decent unit, and the heavy kit allows you more options for a heavy beast.
Heavy kit, shepard, forsaken, striders
Again the heavy kit offers you more options (if you are not magnetizing I suggest making it into a ravagore), the shepard brings one of the best fury management options in the game. The forsaken is another good solo and will see use in a large number of early lists, lastly the striders are a good unit that gives you some options in lots of games. Hope this advice helps.

Its a solid buy yea, thats the way I jumped aboard the ship
More or less all of the models are valid too, the Argii will become a bit outclassed when you start adding other things, but thats kind of the Light warbeast syndrome, most of them that arent straight utilitybeasts tend to get phased out once you learn that you cant have too much fury without backfires...
I STRONGLY suggest magnetizing both the Feral and the Carnivean, those 2 both makes into 2 other heavies. Buy 1-2 heavy kits and you can mix and match all you will ever need. Circle might get around on 1 extra, legion is kind a beast depending so 2 will do you good, and Scytheans/Ravagores are more worth doubling up upon then Stalker/Pureblood
There are a lot of things written about each faction on PPs own forums, and http://battlecollege.wikispaces.com/ has some useful advice and a simple way to get a gist of what a model is capable of.

|Perrind||Well, after talking with him, we're going to go ahead and get the two-player Legion and Circle box. Seems the best buy for our money. Has over double the model count of what normal starting boxes seem to have for both sides.|

I would strongly suggest not both playing the same faction, surely there is some other faction that seem interesting, no?
You will most likely see a broader side of the game if you aint playing mirror matchups all the time
Im no trollbloods player myself, but I do hate Janissa, get her at least!

Hopefully somebody will pop along with a sensible answer soon.
I'll not be much use I'm afraid as I've yet to have a game, and my Mercenaries are not yet complete

Advice for a New Player
Hey everyone! I'm a 40k player, and I've played for a few years, but some of the more recent releases from GW (super heavies and formations in normal games, to name a few) have really started to drive me away from 40k. I'm looking to try out Warmachines/Hordes with my brother. We're both going to try out the Trollbloods because they seem to be really entertaining. Playing a "winning list" has never been my goal. I always enjoy playing lists that just have fun mechanics to just have a good time. Trollbloods seem to fall into that category. Any recommendations on lists? Remember, I know almost nothing about the game, so could you also explain what functions the list will be best at?
I know that's a bit to ask for, but I'd really appreciate the help. Thanks guys!
