Maybe in your area but I know a few.
A whole family to be in fact.
Dad plays chaos.
Mom plays orks.
Older brother plays IG.
Older sister plays pure GK.
And the youngest sister plays SOBs.
You aren't the only one out there, and I'm sure there are some here too.

No, there's a few others floating around here. Moonsinger, Yoda when he/she/it puts a dress on, and a couple of others who pop up periodically

There are a few females online on this site. Its just a question of finding them.

Yoda and Greenstuff are'nt women. If they were they would be an embarassment to your gender.



It is pernicious nonsense that feeds into a rising wave of irrationality which threatens to overwhelm the hard-won gains of the Enlightenment and the scientific method. We risk as a society slipping back into a state of magical thinking when made-up science passes for rational discourse. I would compare it to witchcraft but honestly that's insulting to witches.

I suggest you wander over to the Eldar forum and pose your question there. You will get a rather alarming number of replies I suspect..

Greenstuff is not a girl. Greenstuff is in a category all of its own. And I think the disgust was aimed at the "I love puppies" comment

Welcome to 40K Online err 'Lictor under my Bed' (never though i'd say that :P )

Whatever the race you collect or play, there should be a board available for it here. As for starting Eldar, asking in the Eldar board is best. Afterall, this site used to be purposely made for Eldar (called Eldar Online also the the sister site 40k.ca) so you'll find that the majority of members here are Eldar players. So getting replies is no problem.

Also, you are not alone. There are female members here. There's Moonsinger, Digory, Athenys Manan and some more! Greenstuff and Yoda are NOT... beware ;)

Aged Experience time (Geezer Speak) -  it is never a good idea to announce you're a young female on an open forum such as this. It can lead to an unfortunate amount of inappropriate attention. Best not to open that door in the future.

Cheers.

You have to love the smell of science in the morning. It smells of learning.... or perhaps a gas leak.

Thank you for the compliment!! :)

To allay the fears of the MODS, my aims were purely platonic.  I am a veteran gamer with many years under my belt, and a 4-year old daughter, the apple of my eye, name of Emily. ;D

Lictor, if you really want to play Eldar, they are a fantastic army to collect.  by far the best-looking army, they are serial-slaughterers of marine lists....so if beating up large men wearing fridges is your thing, come over to the Eldar forum where players can aid you further. :)

To answer you briefly though, yes, you need an HQ plus 2 TROOP choices, as per the game norm.  This is a good time to start too as the new codex is about to be released with a raft of beautiful figures.

Happy gaming lictor,

-Reborn. :)
