Hi, my name is Sean and I am new to this. I look forward to when things are more normal and I can play games with people. Learning to play by myself on the kitchen table is getting boring, and my girlfriend is getting annoyed with how much I'm going on about warhammer hahaa. Anyway, looking forward to becoming part of the community and learning more about the hobby! Thanks ☺

Welcome to the forum Sean!
Yeah we're all just itching to play at this point, been a while now where we cannot get together across a table.
As soon as we're able we'll be back at it though for sure!
What army are you building?
Also if you're interested, TTS allows people to play warhammer online. It's pretty cheap, a little clunky til you get used to it, but once you've got it down it's about the closest thing you can get to playing real miniatures games online.
He who dies with the most PAINTED miniatures wins!

Thanks! I painted up the recruit edition starter set, so pretty much half and half necrons/space marines. Right now I'm assembling the elite edition, so more of the same. I'm really digging the Space Wolves though, so that could be the way I go!
I looked into TTS, but seems it's for desktop which I don't have access to unfortunately

Yes, there is lots of choice! Building a full army seems daunting to me, for now at least. I enjoy the models a lot in their own right and am considering getting another faction to paint. Don't want to get too ahead of myself though.
I read about kill team and how that can be a good starting point if you don't have many models

Given you've started off with a recruit and elite box set, you're actually well on your way already. The contents of both boxes combined will get you fairly close to what's called "Combat Patrol" size games, which are played at 25 Power Level / 500 Points, which is exactly where you want to be to learn the ropes.
Kill Team is also a good option to learn the basics like measuring, rolling dice, how to read the datasheets / unit profiles.
As someone who has had a Space Wolves army for some time, they are definitely fun to play. You'll want to get used to the melee-combat rules if you are interested in Space Wolves, as you'll be spending a lot of time punching, cleaving, and otherwise pummeling your opponents in close combat.
Even when utilizing an advanced martial strategy, the correct maneuver is to deploy the giant implacable death lizard
