Default Starting Fantasy

i am just "starting" Warhammer fantasy (well my friend is going to co-own a Dark Elves army with me) and i was wondering where a nice starting level would be. i dont have a rulebook and i have heard that Fantasy is better played at the higher points level so should i start with 1000 points or try 500 points lists first?

Two things

1- Wait. The new Fantasy rules don't come out until August. Only a few months away, no point in starting until you have the new rules.

2- Just like with other games, start small. Collect a 500 point force and play skimish and border patrol games then expand it into 1000 then 1500 and then finally into a standard 2000 point army. Don't rush, take it slow and ensure your familiar not only with the game rules, but also your armies rules.

Remember Dark Elves are elves, so they're fast and fragile. They can dish the damage out but they just can't take it.
