Horray for more Aussies :good:

I'd suggest having a look through the Games Workshop website at the different races, and pick one you like the look of. A good idea is to also look at Astronomican and 'What's new today' on the site as it has even more pictures and articles there as well.

A good starting point is, as above mentioned, Assault on Black Reach. Even if you choose a different race from Space Marines or Orks, the kit is still beneficial for learning how to play and for test models for paint schemes.

Personally I'd opt to, for starters, choose a race you want and buy the models you like for them, because as much as the game matters so does the hobbying.

Good luck!

For just starting (and seeing as you seem interested in Space Marines) go for the standard Space Marine Codex, pick a nice scheme out of the codex you like or make your own. Make a simple all comers list and play with that to begin with. From there you can adapt your army to be more of an assault, ranged or other playstyle.

Once you master the standard codex then you could move into the more specialised Space Wolves or Blood Angels codicies of their rules suit your style of play.

Starting at the standard codex will mean less confusion from Special Rules while you are learning the basics of the game.
