Hello all!

After a 5 year gaming hiatus, I am deciding to continue the Warhammer hobby. I used to play orc(k)s in both Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40k. I have several questions, and I apologize in advance if these questions should be written elsewhere; this is the first time I have posted on these forums.

First, I truly cannot decide between playing Warhammer Fantasy and Warhammer 40k; I truly love both for different reasons. From Fantasy, I love Lizardmen, and from 40k, Astra Militarum have caught my attention. I would truly absolutely love to play both armies, but school is extremely demanding, and I do not have the time or money to play both. However, I am leaning toward 40k, as it appears that Fantasy is a dying IP and that very few players play this. Is this a misguided belief?

Second, with regard to Astra Militarum: the basic infantry look great! However, it seems to me that the Astra Militarum possess extremely little in its breadth of aesthetics. What I mean is that it appears that there really only appears to be one type of model (the gaurdsman), unlike, say the tau, who have fire warriors, kroot, and vespids (completely varied aesthetics throughout the different model types). Is there any way to vary the aesthetics of the Astra Militarum to make it a little less monotonous?

Third, is there an aesthetic difference between normal imperial guardsmen and veteran imperial guardsmen?

Fourth, how is the Astra Militarum supposed to survive close combat? Whilst playing this army, are you supposed to avoid close combat at all costs by retreating and retreating?

Fifth, are the Tempestus Scions and Imperial Knights part of the Astra Militarum codex? (I.e., can you field such units together?)

Sixth, I really want to make a paint scheme with dark blue armor and blue-grey cloth. I am not familiar with the new Citadel paint range, could someone please suggest a decent sample paint scheme following these guide lines?

Seventh, where is the cheapest and best place I can buy Warhammer products?

Finally, is there a different glue that I could use instead of the standard Citadel glue? I really do not believe the odor from this glue is not healthy; are there any milder scented glues on the market that are suitable for Warhammer?
