Hah, so far I've only seen 1, and she didn't look like she knew what she was doing 100% (her BF prolly got her to play it since he was there with her)

WH40k is really a male demographic thing isn't it.

It is for a few reasons

1- The subject of war doesnt appear to most women
2- Most women do not enjoy the modleing, painting and other hands on asspects.
3- The only other people to play with are fat sweaty nerds.
4- Warhammer is overpriced, even though we realize it women act on it.

Taht and everyone seems to insist they play Sisters. I showed my Fiancee the Witch-hunters codex, she took one look at one of the bolter-weilding belles and decried them all as sexist.
Just as we she hadn't seen the Repentia eh?
Or Deamonettes.

The 40K universe is a bit sexist, and playing with toy soldiers is a bit of a guy thing.

yea, but you should remmember that to a girl, playing with little plastic army men might be similar to a guy playing with dolls and such.

I know a Grand total of 2.

1 Worked at GW for a while, playing witch hunters after playing some fantasy army.
The other, oddly enough, played tyranids..

Indeed it is a rare commodity to see members of the opposite sex playing such games, let alone going into a store. The store itself is just as much a deterent as the models, being that there are usually sweaty nerdy blokes (though not all) who seem to spend a day at a time in there i hardly wonder why. These are the sorts of people whom you would normally cross the street to avoid, so say someone i know. So if she wouldn't share a pavement with such a guy the likelyness of her going into a small store full of them is, well, zero. So if most would avoid the store they aren't really going to get into the game are they?
