    I don't know that I should really get involved in this kind of discussion, but I did come here looking for other women who play warhammer and this seems to be a somewhat relevant topic, so...

    @ eldargal: Hi. I'm a gal and I play too.
    @ Kahoolin: I am an only child and don't have a sig. other who plays. I don't have any male friends who play. I got into 40K when I walked into a game shop looking for a new game to play. I saw some guys playing 40K and thought "that looks like the game for me."
    @ everyone: I DON'T like painting better than playing--in fact, I don't like painting very much at all. I love the color, but would never paint an army pink. I DON'T choose an army based on how pretty the models are. I DON'T worry about looking like a nerd. I'm not unattractive. I DO have issues at the game store where I play (while watching battles I've had guys ask me to roll or blow on their dice for them--guys, BLOW ON THIS <inappropriate hand gesture>!) I DO play for fun--winning is fun.

    Some complained that GF's have been the reason why friends left the hobby. In my case it was the other way around. 3 years ago I wanted to sell all my mins because i had not enough time for W40k. My GF asked me if I am really sure. Some weeks later we came along a GW-Store and she asked me if I didn't want to go in. 3 month later I started a new army.

    Today I'm glad I did not left the hobby. I enjoy painting and playing and in most cases my GF has a good advise when I'm not sure which color would be appropriate or which pose looks best.

    Okay, the attempt to get my GF into the hobby was not 100% successful, I now play Eldar as third army. But I get her playing once a month or once every two month and we both enjoy it.

    Touche! It didn't come out the way I meant to say it.

    Although, I was 7 or 8 when I started playing Rifts... so it is possible.

    Frankly, I wish there were more female gamers because:
    a) Diversity is good
    b) Some players I know could do with the improved social skills
    c) I find it a turn-on.

    Could just be me.

    Especially ones who like to win...Hi Ard Gal, welcome to BoLS. I'm kidding. Sort of. lol.

    One of the female players had been rolling like a beast that particular day and my dice were stuck rolling 1's and 2's. I asked her to roll my dice for and she got mad at me and said something similar ro the quote above. She swatted the dice from my hand and rolled three sixes and a four for my marine commanders invo saves.

    She apologized for the outburst (after i told her why i picked her to role) and we had a good high five for the awesome game winning role.

    I'm thinking of a Blood for the Blood God joke, but it's a little too adult. I hope you can fill in your own, um...blanks.

    That is so bad...

    To be fair, it probably sums up why I'm single, and there are so few female gamers at the same time. It doesn't matter that I'd never actually say that joke, the mere fact that I thought it is enough.
