In Boston, there has been a surge of interest, and sales both of the box set, and of fantasy in general.
I've actually started a chaos army because of this. I can use the daemons to ally with my Orks in 40k when summoned, as well as for AoS in their own right. If it hadn't been for AoS, I probably wouldn't have bought those items with the intention of starting another army, not yet anyway.
I had looked at WHFB, but whilst there were a handful of regulars who played, there wasn't enough interest to justify the expense and effort of building a dedicated army. If it wasn't exactly dead, it was on life support, even in the local games club.

Anyway, all that said, it seems that the only reason that there is a problem with the similarity between SM's and Sigmarites is because it is perceived to be symptomatic of the problem with GW.
I don't know about that, except that locally, in the upcoming AoS tournament being organised in the Boston GW store, order accounts for a fraction of the armies being played. Chaos is the overwhelmingly preferred faction, followed by Destruction.

Tournament rules? Do you play Core rules only? Or do you houserule? I.e, can I bring my old 8000pt army against your 20 wounds or whatever?

It still doesn't make a difference to GW if you spend 120 on Orks or AoS, unless you spend both 240 total on Orks AND AoS. That would justify it.

The manager is organising it and he briefly explained the rules to me. The warlord is a non-named character, you must have 2 troops and there are restrictions on artillery cavalry and monsters but I can't remember exactly what they were. It should be interesting to see how it goes.

No problem, I've put my name down, and am going along myself. I doubt I'll have anything painted by then though.

Actually, I believe the PC term would be "crossbolter"

I'm painting my stormcast eternals as Ultramarines. And you know what? I'm having a blast with it. Age of Sigmar is a ton of fun, and I can just go "GROUND MAHRINES, CHARGE!" We've been playing the shit out of it, and at the store, we all just shrugged and went, "You know what? This is awesome, having not Space Marine paladin-y guys who are clearly Space Marines." It's about fun, and if you don't believe Age of Sigmar is about being ridiculous and fun, go look at the Orc warscrolls and tell me you still don't think so.
