Introduction Yes, I am a female wargamer. There aren't many of us around, but we make up in quality what we lack in numbers. I mainly play games using the TooFatLardies rules; I Ain't Been Shot, Mum, Quadrant 13 and Sharp Practice version 2. I've also got the Field Of Glory Renaissance rules but I'm not impressed by them. I'm currently playing Alien Squad Leader and enjoying that a lot and I'm also getting into Frostgrave and developing an interest in Cthulhu games and A Very British Civil War. I'm definitely enjoying painting the larger figures.
