Welcome to Librarium Online!
Are male witchhunter players generally accepted into the WH community? I normally play at my local shop, and have only seen 1 WH player (who was a female), and her army was reduced to being called 'Girlscouts', but please share your experiances.

I DO LIKE A GOOD GRUMBLE!
Witch Hunters are generally accepted in my store. Both male and female players use them, but there are more female players (probably because its the only female army). Nobody is picked on for playing them because the people there are friendly, however ther is the occasional joke reference to "bolter b*****S".
"DICE FOR THE DICE GOD!"
And the almighty Dice God said to his followers "Thou shalt not speak ye words "anything but a one" For thou whoever'st speaketh this blasphemy will be cursed with thy rolls being of one".
Nobody bothers me.
I myself pick on unpainted armies.
Like this loser who proxied over 20 weapons against me last time I played.
I was so disgusted that I made "idiot cards".
I wrote the names of his weapons on slips of paper and planted them all around the field where needed. When people asked what they were, I explained to them that I needed flash cards to keep track of the "invisible proxy weapons" that I was fighting against.

Good move - in case the weapons would start teleporting to where they were needed the most... I did not get picked on yet (mostly play in club with friends), but I just hate the "Bolter B...s" comment - hate foul language in general...
i have yet to see a female WH player, i think anyone who plays WH is accepted simply because they are not playing space marines and WH are one the rare 40k armies.

I think Witch Hunters are awesome! I don't even play them, but if I were to start a third army it would certainly be them. Honestly, how can any self respecting guy not like girls with guns?
And I love the exorcist model. The idea of raining death down on my opponents with a pipe organ is too cool.
On a another note, Eldar and Dark Eldar employ both sexes equally. That makes them good for any player.

That's hysterical and sad at the same time, hehe...Originally Posted by hellkat
Bolter b*tches isn't very nice, I agree...I think "nuns with guns" is pretty funny tho. =)
Hey Sister, Go Sister, Soul Sister, Go Sister
I play Witchhunters, i tend to be acceptably macho since my other army is Khorne World Eaters
Anyone who has been on the receiving end of the number of flamer templates in my army in a cityfight game should learn to respect them more.
"Aha! Guard are so good in cityfight because my entire conscript platoon gets a cover save of...uh where did they all go?"
I am a male WH player and I've never had any greif over it.
Especially after I chewed up a Blood Angels army and then a White Scars army.
"The sword that takes life gives life."
What, do I look like anybody will give me a hard time?
Seriously, my Chicks are completely respected where I play and unfortunatly, I have never seen a female WH player.
