Mordheim is a great game. My Sisters of Sigmar and Witch Hunters used to do really well. However, finding anyone to play with might be a problem. As for fantasy alternatives, there really aren't many. I think Mantic recently had a KS for something along the lines of HeroQuest, but with a skirmish twist, so that might be worth a look.
Otherwise Malifaux and Infinity have pretty much sewn up the skirmish angle at the moment, with Deadzone way behind.
Tying yourself to the fantasy genre could be a handicap, as you won't explore other great games like Muskets and Tomahawks. I haven't played it yet, but have watched a couple of games, and on the back of them I will be picking up a box of Wargames Factory Forest Indians. Very quick game play, relatively small model count and very smooth rules system
Cool thanks. A few people are interested at the FLGS so will give Mordheim my attention from now on. At the end of the day if no one ends up playing regularly, I can just focus on the modelling/painting side.
Not really bothered about handicapping myself to the fantasy genre: I feel like gaming for me is not something that takes up a lot of my free time in my life anymore anyway. Just feel like I am moving on from it in this chapter in my life if you know what I mean. I may pick it all up again the future (seems to come in 7 year waves). Life is change.
I just want to dedicate to 2 or 3 games that are not time consuming and just fun with cool models and stories behind the whole thing. That's it really.
