FLGS > GW store anyday.

I find that RPG players are more in tune to play a minis based game then CCG players, so if you know a group of those that are around, see if any of them are intrested in playing a game. Another thing you can do is if you are really intrested in getting the game going is set up demos, you may have to buy either another ABOR box set (which comon, even if you are only playing SM, it is worth it), and mix matching until you have 2 playable forces on the table. Paint them up and have a demo day down at your FLGS, offer everyone who comes in a demo of the game. Keep it simple, and rather small, add to much and you will find youself losing their intrest rather quickly.

I live in a fairly isolated area as well and understand your frustration. The advice you have been getting about introducing new players into it is sound. In this instant gratification computer based world we live in it is a bit of a challenge to get people interested enough to sign on, but not impossible. Everyone has a modelling skill level as well, so don't forget that. I would rather play with a kid who has badly built and painted models (that he did himself with great effort) but enjoys the game, than someone with a fantastic looking army who's an ass.

If your plan seems to be working...something's wrong

Oh and also look for modelers and people who do trains, something that deals with minis already, they are the ones who will look at this for the painting side of it as well.

About that AOBR is short a troop, I have two C-squads. I bought the box because it saved about two hundred dollars(guess-ti-mate) on SM's alone. I didn't think about giving the Orks to my friend until after. Thank ya'll for the advice.

Baalirock, do you know where College Station, Texas, is?

Another thing to ask is if anyone you know has ever played Warhammer Fantasy. I have been around my teacher playing 40k since '04 and last year I told him about 40k, only to have him say he's played a GW game before. Now he is a Nid player, and a very fun player at that.
As I said in another post, I've got 10 people to start the hobby mainly by having my own army and my friend who has an army play games at a local club. We got so many people asking "What is this?" and "Whoa! That looks awesome!!" that now at our clubs, we basically "Teach" Warhammer 40k to our friends, who each have small forces of 500-1000 points each. Many have gotten seriously into the hobby.

P.S. If you are in school, tell people who are in Art class about it. They will love the hobby part of the game, and they love being able to use their art in games to show off their skills.
