Just wanted to share with you something that has been forwarded to me about a show
called the Warrior Bazaar. It looks really good and seems to cover all types of table top gaming.
I'm going anyway because Sundays are boring and I'm going to support them, these organisers seem to know what they are doing!!
BUT thought some of you might be interested in taking a look at their funny You Tube advert - YouTube - Warrior Bazaar - their website gives more details....
I have only just been introduced to dungeons and dragons really but I'm a quick learner ;-)
welcome to LO I hope you find them as helpfull as i have
thank you for your reply - nice to know girls are allowed to play aswell on here
Allowed and encouraged! I think you see more girls interested in this stuff of late, and it's nice to see the hobby is crossing that gender barrier.
I haven't played D&D in years. Back then, it was Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, long before the revamp. Now, I play 40k. Are you venturing into tabletop gaming now? What piques your interest?
it started over a couple of drinks and I just happened to be in the presence of a Dungeon Master - after a realised he didnt want to tie me up in handcuffs and leather, I was a little disappointed (joke ;-) ) but thought I would give it a go!!!
I am only just learning but really get into it sometimes and of course all my characters at the moment are women (hey Im not ready to dress up as a dwarf yet!!!) . Thought I would come on here and learn more to surprise my Dungeon Master
words of encouragement are always welcome xx
If you like female characters, that helps narrow the field as to what you might like:
Tau: technically, they're an "equal opportunity" army, with both male and female members, but there's only one named female character, and even she looks decidedly androgynous in her crisis suit. Technically qualifies, but if you want something with decidedly female-looking models, you might wanna give these guys a pass.
Eldar/Dark Eldar: Here, it depends. Basically, the rank-and-file of both armies have, at best, a mixture of male and female warriors, with the Dark Eldar warrior females having a more... feminine shape than the males. Still, it's not all-female unless you a) Buy/sell/trade the male models in favor of the females, which would be a chore, or b) Use a minimal number of "warrior" squads, and pack the rest of your army with specialist units, some of which can easily be all-female. Dark Eldar wyches basically look like dominatrices with pointy ears. There may be others, but I'm not a DE player, and therefore don't know. The Eldar have Howling Banshees, which are an all-female aspect warrior squad, and there are also the Harlequins, which are technically male and female, but you might find it easier to field more female than male models here than in other "mixed gender" squads.
Sisters of Battle/Witch Hunters: Really the only all-female army in the entire game, both in terms of fluff and models. It's possible to take a male inquisitor/retinue as an HQ slot, but those models are often scratchbuilt, which of course offers you LOTS of opportunities to make them female too, that's if you even WANT an Inquisitor in your army. You don't need one. The rank-and-file soldiers are basically women with the same tough-as-nails armour and weapons as Space Marines, and the models look VERY feminine, but more like women soldiers than the sexed-up, half-naked Red Sonja/Barbarella models that so often stand in for strong female warrior types. They are slightly more sophisticated than the beginner-friendly marines, however, and take a bit more finesse to use right. If you want an army of women, though, this is the army to go with.
Other than that, the options are slim to none. The Necrons, Orks and Tyranids are all androgynous/asexual beings, and Space Marines/Daemonhunters are all male. Even suggesting female marines/Grey Knights will cause a spirited debate and flamewar, so much so that we mods have had to intervene from time to time. That said, there's a controversial "marine" chapter made out of women in the conversion and painting threads you ought to check out if you really want female marines ("The Black Widows," if I recall). The IG are TECHNICALLY an equal-opportunity army, but that seems to exist in fluff only, as I have yet to see any IG models at all that are women. Again, you can convert some Cadians, but it will take work, and for an entire army, I promise you'll go batty trying to do that.
I invite you to start up a thread in General Discussion or the relevant army sub-forums for more info/advice.
Good luck, and welcome aboard!
