I'm just about done constructing my Khorne daemon army, and am also putting together a Thousand Sons/Tzeentch daemon army (I still need to buy a Helbrute when I have the money).  I'm also currently reading the Ahriman Omnibus which I would highly recommend for someone who like Chaos.

Noice! I particularly like the rust effect.

Finished reading Flight of the Eisenstein not too long ago. Plan on reading Fulgrim next. What should I read afterwords though?

Do you want to read more about the Horus Heresy or "current" events?  I quite enjoyed Dark Imperium.

After Fulgrim, you can pretty much jump around as you like, as the narrative largely stops being linear.  I personally would recommend First Heretic as it goes into real origins of the Heresy and who fell to Chaos first.

As to my armies, as soon as my Bloodthrone is completed, my Khorne daemon army will be done.  I just ordered a Contemptor Dreadnought for my Thousand Sons arm and will make it Hellforged.  For weapons, I think that I'll use two chainfists for melee and two butcher's cannons or soulburners for my firepower.

I want to continue with the Horus Heresy. I'm quite interested in Magnus and I also need to know how the confrontation between Horus and the Emperor goes down. But which books cover the main events that chronologically come after the bombing of Istvaan III. First Heretic sounds like a must read also.

I just finished First Heretic a few weeks ago.  Loved it.  I also like the Angron novels.  The World Eaters are fascinating.

First Heretic was great.  I loved the idea of full possessed Chaos Space Marines commanding a ship, and hope we see it again some time.

Has anyone here checked out the previews for the new Shadow Spear box?  There's a bunch of new Primaris, a new Daemon Engine, a sorcerer called the Lord of Possession, new CSM and probably some other stuff.  Also, the Abbadon model itself has been teased and it looks amazing.

I used to think the Word Bearers sucked until I read that novel.

I'm planning to get back into 40k this summer once I've got some free time, stupidly gave it up in High School.  Stumbled across the Astartes clips on youtube, and the animated Helsreach and it rekindled my interest.  Any pointers for where to start, as I'm guessing things have changed in seventeen years. 

Side note.  I'm also addicted to this series

When you say "where to start", do you mean in terms of playing the tabletop game, or the lore, or...?

Yeah, 40k is an IP with many different rabbit holes.
