    Female's in general have more important things to worry about, like hair and make up and doing girly stuff. Remember i said in general! Im refering mainly to my own female friends and girlfriends. War is more a guys thing, and playing with models and toys is usually more a guys thing so war models ultimatly = guys!
    Then of course you get the female players who are totally laid back, dont care what people think they should be doing and just do what the hell they like. You know the ones, the really sexy untouchable women that you can only get with in your dreams!

    I think I agree with Macewind that it is generally a "what people are interested" thing. Maybe an opposite example is that why don't you see many guys wanting to go shopping?
    That said, my sister is a bit of an artist and she always appreciates the art and background in the army books/codexs.

    I think females who play; play it for the painting and modelling side of it

    There are quite a few female gamers here in the midwest united states...... There are also a lot of females that are "closet" gamers....and they generally take interest in the games that are being played even if they don't quite understand them right away... of course none of the lady gamers I know play 40K... they tend to stick with fantasy... and for some reason 3 out of 4 of them play elves of some sort.

    Well, almost half of our mod-crew are females...
    There are female gamers, just very few of them I guess. I have never seen a girl wargame.

    I think its because war gaming in general is misunderstood as being 'nerdy'. And think girls certainly tend to care more about what people think of them than guys do, so they are more afraid of it than us.
    There's probably also the natural lack of interest in war things, as mentioned above.

    At my local GW there are always girls there watching and as far as i know there is one who plays regularly with her own army etc. Hopefully be able to convince a few more to get involved which would make playing Warhammer so much better if you catch my drift :shifty:
