I feel for you mate, I was in a similiar situation years ago. I tried to keep going but in the end it was pulling on a dead horse. Painting and netlisting gets old really quick when you have noone to play with.
In the end I sold off or stored my miniatures, paints and books away and left the hobby for the better part of the last six years. I did keep my ear to the ground by joining the Games Workshop email-list and checking blogs (Faeit212, BOLS and B&C). This proved to be a saviour for me as about two weeks ago I learned a Warhammer Store had opened in a town an hour's worth travel away. Went there last weekend and I am now part of a resurgent hobby community, we have around ten guys all with similiar stories as mine rebuilding our armies and getting up to speed with the new rules. Coming Friday I will play my first game of 40k in six years with 750 points of Space Marines.
The moral of the story, even if it looks bleak right now do not despair, in time an opportunity will present itself. Keep an ear out and be ready to seize it when it comes.
Best of luck!
