Me and my friend just attended our weekly gaming club and for some reason we found it a bit boring. I'm by no means the best player ever, I'm not trying to be cocky or anything I'm just looking for a larger more diverse gaming group, a group where i can play against lots of other armies.
My current club only gets about 15 players as we only live in a small town. There's truly only 2 of us that want to play 40k on a weekly basis. There is a club about an hours drive away from our own. The only issue is that we are both sort of worried about losing all our games repeatedly at the larger club.
Any insight would be extremely grateful.
So what are the other 13 doing? are they playing a different game? If so you could give that a go.
The thing is, if you have the time and can take the hassle of going along to that other club then at laest you know what its like there. It coudl be awesome, but if you don't try it you'll never know. Losing all the time can suck, but it really is the only way to get better at playing the game as well so there's always that aspect of it. I guess it depends whether you want to continue being big fish in a small pond or not.

You want to lay on something like a starter three-thousand-points-plus (whatever you can field) Apocalypse turn-up-and-play, or a campaign where everyone can join in, even using any spare models you may have. If you use something like Planetary Empires then everyone gets a taste of the 40k universe, especially if you branch out with extras like Cities of Death (now on t'interweb for free I believe) or campaign supplements like Battlefield Gothic, Dark Heresy (the 40k RPG), Inquisitor (somewhat complicated but sure to attract the RPG nutters who usually naysay any sort of personal involvement in the 40k universe) or even the classic Necromunda, a fun OR campaign-based game for everyone. Most of these supplements are available from the GW website for nowt.
There's something for everyone in the 40k universe, and if you don't attract additional players (which you will if you create a club website and you take over running of events in the 40k universe) you are sure to have more fun between you and your game partner thanks to the wider range of gaming activities. If all else fails, then a visit to GW will find you someone to take on. How about a few paper flyers posted around town advertising for a one-night/day-a-month event at a mutually acceptable location? This works from my experience. Alternatively try posting on various websites like LO. That milkshake will surely bring the boys to the proverbial yard!
Good luck & good hunting.
