Fantasy armies should include women

Picked up this very interesting blog from writer Rachel Aaron this morning...

'Why fantasy armies can and should include women'

Since I have an interest in both epic fantasy and fantasy 'gaming (and I do a bit of writing myself, not fantasy though), I found it interesting.



  1. Not just fantasy armies either. Where possible, or practical, I included women in most of the ancient wargames armies I did about 20-30 years ago. Not many, granted (but in 6mm, who knows), but more than zero :)

  2. One's fantasy army should consist of what one thinks the culture would have. My main issue for fantasy female figures is they are mostly dressed like exotic dancers.
