Warmachine started in my local club from one guy moving to the area and teaching me to play, it grew to a peak of 12 gamers and has been steadily shrinking ever since.
The issues revolve around some shift work, but mostly people are moving into other games, so although those gamers are still about, they have not been playing WM, pretty much since the middle of last year.
I got out of 40k because I was bored to death, the new Warhammer doesn't excite me, infinity is ... well is going to require more concentration than I can usually muster that late in the evening and as much as I like playing some of the odd board games that get bought up to the club, it's not why I go there, and I feel the desire to go to the club at all drifting.
I'm not the most motivated person unfortunately I would love to be a Press ganger but a lack of confidence and motivation (just generally) means I wouldn't be very good at it.
I have arranged a game next week (if the guy can find his shoebox of casters (has not played since March last year), but after that the odds are low that I will get a game in before next month, or the month after.
One game a month will see me drift away i'm sure.
The other issue is when people were bringing ther stuff we were ending up with a lot of odd numbers, which meant either lots of small point games or players missing out, which was also a factor in people not brining their WM to the club.
So I ask you press gangers and other motivated players, what would you do to get people back to the WM table?
I've seen the "Thunderdome", "Highlander" and King of the mountain formats which all look fairly interesting, that kind of game may garner some enthusiasm at least.
In the mean time I will continue to plod on with some modelling and do a bit of painting when I can force myself to do so and hope for the best.
