considering 99% of it's staff are male and 99% of it's stock are plastic figures of men? The only female figures they have are half naked women with a push up bra. Ds is going to an event at the local store tomorrow and the mothers were asked to supply a cake!
DP bloody loves this stuff! I have seen quite a few young girls playing in the store when I've been with DP/DS and they've always been very welcoming. That said, I have mentioned to DP that the female characters seem a little, well, naff.
<preens> I'm obviously one of the young girls you refer to Wiggy . If not let's pretend.
Regarding female characters, I don't know many girls who play those armies. Deamonettes are technically not female and the Sisters of Battle are a more alternative choice. In my experience it's Space Wolves and Necrons that appeal to female gamers, just as popular with the boys mind.
That's because Space Wolves and Necrons are the winning choice. I prefer Tyranids myself, and a lot of the women I know who play also like them, but they've had a poor codex update so I've been focusing on painting my Dayglo Orange Necrons.
