Thanks for the advice!
Last night I think we settled on Firestorm Armada. (Something about spaceships sealed the deal)
Although to be fair, as I have a birthday coming up, I might ask for a few Cryx or the book then start working on a small list..

I'll check out Battlecollege and the PP forums!

I did downmload the App, but hadn't a clue what to do with it. lol
