Default Starting 40k, and wondering about a few things

Hello, forum!

Though I've always been interested in starting a 40k army, lack of gaming shops and gamers in my region had kind of killed that idea.
Recently, a game store opened near my place. They have a lot of stuff there, and a few GW products (mostly SMs and Tyranids, plus the Assault on Black Reach boxed set and the 5th Ed rulebook).

My girlfriend has started to shown some interest in acquiring some of those miniatures I've been talking about lately. :P
My questions are the following:

*Should I acquire the Battle for Black Reach boxed set?
*How well balanced are both forces in the boxed set?
*In case the hobby shop lacks GW paint, is there any special thing I should have in mind when I look for alternatives?

Thank you very much.

Cheers!

PS. Yeah, I plan to make a thread in the Welcome section, but I suck at those, so I just made this one first. :P

PS 2. Excuse my grammar, English isn't my native language.

First off, welcome to the world of 40k! I have the same problem as you, there aren't any GW shops around so we're stuck with purchasing online or expensive third party shops , anyhow.

The assault on black reach box is definitely a good starter, it was the first thing I got and allowed me and my bro to start butchering each other from the start . The forces are pretty well balanced, we had matches going both ways.

Thanks for the answer and the welcome! :P
Yeah, kinda sucks to be in the other side of the world. Anyway, that was all I wanted to hear. I will buy the starter set.

Thanks again!
