Just picked this game up, a core and a small expansion. Where should I start?

Your decks should be quite generic, but having only one core would give you the flavour of the game. You can make one deck of each Empire, Dwarfs, Chaos and Orcs. If by small expansion you mean Assault on Ulthuan, you could also make a High Elves and a Dark Elves decks. If you mean a battle pack, that would only boost the decks a little with some new cards (if from the Corruption Cycle, only 40 cards, with singles and triples for a total 20 new cards, if from Enemy Cycle or beyond, 60 cards, 20 new cards, three of each).

 

You could also build one Order deck, mixing Empire and Dwarfs and one Destruction deck, made up from Orc and Chaos cards (following the loyalty rules) and make them more focused, but, if you are competitive, you'll find Destruction a bit more powerful with just the core set, thanks to cards like Troll Vomit.

 

I would also recommend reading the FAQ for the game, since some rules, like toughness, are a bit confusing in the rulebook.
