So what exactly do you need help with? Adding a question usualy helps.

so.. you need to give us something to work with.. like: what army(ies) are you looking at?, how do you usually play games, stationary of mobile (games as in all types of games), do you plan on keeping your army to a fluff storyline? that kind of thing

First off, I would fix your spelling and grammar. If you plan to have any respect around here, that would be the best bet to start.

Then, I would head to your army of choice's Sub Forum. That's your best bet.

If you don't know how to play the game in the first place you should probably buy the rule book or battle for maccrage. Because those will teach you the rules. Also try going to a local GW where they will "teach" you how to play.

Yes, this would work. Also watching other people play is a good way to learn, and just asking questions when you don't understand something(but make sure it's okay with the people you are watching, I sometimes find it annoying, all the questions when I'm trying to focus on a game).

Either way is a good way to start. Before you try to build an army list or anything, just try to get a grip on the basics of the game. Then slowly add more and more, then, before you know it, it's all second nature.

The main way I 1st learned to play was to watch people's games, ask questions, and study my codex. The other way is just by experience. Once you know the UBER-basics, then you are probably ready to ask a patient player if he will scrim you in a small game and help you along. the 1st game I ever played (I don't count it as a game, because I didn't have time to finish it and we were both new) was "against" a new space marine player who had the battle for mcragge (spelling?) set. We did a little battle on a 2x2 board, each of us having one 6-man squad of marines, all models were his. The people at the store helped us out a lot, too. As I said before, Don't be afraid to ask questions, most people are patient enough to give you a good answer so long as you gave the question some thought. Good luck!
