I hope I don't get flamed for this and please don't. Has there ever been or are there female guardsmen in the 8th Cadian?
Nope, 8th is an all-male regiment. There are female regiments though, and a couple co-ed ones, but the co-eds are very rare. Typically it's all male or all female.
Alright, that makes sense. So another question then, anyone know which regiment was all female and what their color scheme was?
I really don't know of any other than the Sisters of Battle. Dude you should definately create your own!
I was thinking about it but I would like to keep it close to the 40k storyline. If I don't get any more information I might as well create my own.
There so many different planets in the universe one of them must have a female regiments.
I have to agree with everyone else, making your own is probably the best way to go. I want to make a pretty mixed army, and am going to use some Escher models from the Necromunda range. Other options include a few out of production models floating on ebay, converted Fantasy models, and even models from other ranges.
So long as you don't make every model a Psyker, claim their direct descendents of the Emperor, or that they are better than Space Marines, your fluff will fit the canon.
I am heading off to the Peace Corps. It is bery likely I will not be back. Good luck to all of you endeavors.
Haven't heard of female Cadian regiments, though they do exist, since men, women and children all fight for Cadia. Making up your own can't be too hard. Read the Ciaphas Cain novels if you can and want inspiration, there's a female Valhallan regiment there.
The idea is that most regiments are mixed. If you look at almost all of the fluff you see references to "the men and women of a regiment". There aren't any female guardsman models (although I suppose there could be - that kind of lifestyle would leave everyone looking fairly androgenous) but the general idea is that they're there. I think the idea behind not making a big song and dance about there being women in regiments is that it's one of those "it should be fairly obvious" things.
