I've been playing with starting fantasy for ages now but am struggling to really get in to it. Rather than buy loads of models and find i don't like an armies play style, i was hoping folks could throw some ideas my way on the army that is (most likely) to suit me, some guidelines,

* I'm one of those perfectionist painters who takes ages, so preferably not a 'horde' army.
* Pref an evil race (not ogres though, they're my one race boycot)
* Strong magic phase
* Fun not cheese

Any thoughts?
