Is there any girl play 40k? May be my town is too small. I never see any girls play 40k and shop at hobby shop.

Yes, though very uncommon. I went to GDLA and there were a few females in the crowd, but this is still a male dominated hobby (unfortunately :-[).

The hobby, by it's very nature, tends to not attract many females. Simply put, collecting, painting and playing "war" with little "toys" isn't what the stereotypical woman wants to do with her time.

That said, there are an elite few females who do enjoy this hobby. From my own experience, they tend to focus more on the modeling / painting aspect rather than the actual gaming side. But there are players - mainly Nids & Eldar (again from my experience) who are out there.

On our own forum, I believe that we have around three female gamers - two who play 'Nids, one who plays Chaos.

Has it been that long since we had this topic on the front page?

Anyhow, yes there are. A few I have known have even been red shirts at the GW stores. They are rare though as The Orange said.

Yeah, very few... my wife stood out a lot. That, and her "Thundercats" shirt was very conspicuous; she had redshirts shouting out "Thundercats Ho!" when she walked up.

She hasn't played much, and is making slow progress on her Orks, but she's into the hobby somewhat.

Almost got one of my exes to play 40k, SoBs as a matter of fact.

And the main manager of the shop I prefer to go to is, in fact, female, and does know games.

My fiance plays SoB. And once in a while I get her into M:tG and Rifts.

Hope. This is not a plan. This is not a solution. It is reaction.

There's one female SoB player at the store down the road from me.

40K just doesn't attract a lot of females.
