Chaos is out..as far as easy to paint goes.
Eldar CAN be easy if you stay away from things like Harlies
Nids can also be easy.
Marines...

Necron's are probibly the easiest to paint of all armies. I read a painting guide that taught you how to do it all with spray paint.

They are not the best of armies right now though.

I played guard for a while and did the GI-Joe guard. Green, Black and Mettal. Three colors and thats it!

...

I hate painting.

Guard are fine, and very viable indeed.

As far as painting goes, they're not particularly difficult, unless you go for an infantry heavy force with an intricate camo scheme, or decide on a Forge world Guard army, with all that detail. Many builds are hordes, so you don't want to make each trooper a work of art- it's much better to have a finished horde done to a reasonable standard, than a few models done to competition standard and the rest only undercoated.

Your Vehicles are the main show piece things- It is worth getting an Airbrush to do them properly.

dont choose anything that involved painting yellow, white or orange as those colors are difficult to paint especially if you plan to apply those colours across your whole army. IG would be a good choice, but they are the second most popular army so dont expect your army to be too unique. They have a fair amount of cool little bitz especially in the command box. Tyranids are easy to paint usually involving only two colours but their rulebook is becoming in need of an update I believe.

i'd like to see that painting guide.

Necrons are easy to paint and have no options except the destroyer lord model and positioning of most units.

Already said it once this evening, go for the army that you like the models for most, it will please you more in the long run.
