Default Why arn't necron lords female?

In most sci-fi, whenever there is a hive type structure, such as the borg in star trek, the leader is female. The only exception I can think of it necrons. Why do you think that is?

It's probably beacuse that there is no telling what sex a necron is. A lord could possibly be a female.

Necrons are genderless. They are nothing but souls implanted into a suit of armour... then again, we don't even have enough fluff on the Necrontyr to tell if they had genders before the C'tan!

Ditto, Necrons don't have a gender. If you wan't to break it down, thier just a bunch of metal skeletons.

That is an interesting idea for a conversion though...

that would be hilarious, but how can you tell? there is a way with skeletons but I think that has to do with human bone structure not futuristic/ancient mechanical constructs.

Necrons do not have a gender distinction. The Necrontyr probably did, but they gave all of their 'parts', and basic body parts up for eternal life in the form of living Necron bodies. One reason Necrons don't have those 'parts', is that they do not need them. Necrons do not have sex, nor do they have sexual feelings, so those parts are obsolete, and would just get in the way when in combat.

Since it is science fiction, you could probably get away with a female Necron Lord conversion. If we were thinking logically, there is no reason why Tau and Eldar should have recognizeable genders, either. Science Fiction often ignores that triviality.

If you want to convert one, there is a model in the Tomb King range that would make a decent base.

There is a difference between "sex" and "gender" by the way. Gender has nothing to do with "parts"...
