At the end of the day it's not the fact that the 7 other guys who were beaten by a girl (well just a little) but it's awesome kudos for someone to participate in something that is wholly dominated by the other sex and do well. I will be showing this to my daughters.

My wife had a great time socialising and talking to all the participants at NZTC, she even wants to go to Natcon and said sign me up. So I did. A couple of hours later she said she didn't want to go, but I had already paid. So "fuck it" she said and was fully committed. We're going over to the Hutt and babysit the Mother in Law's house and play warhammer for 3 days.
She's always been into gaming, mostly cards (illuminati) and VtM and I got her going with warhammer because she loved painting and wanted to be interested in my hobby. I gave her my Vampire counts army that was languishing and now she has VC over 10,000 points, 450 strong night goblins and the beginnings of a Skaven army. Did I mention she paints like an assembly line. To tabletop quality she can paint probably twice as fast as me. But then again she has 3 horde armies with very large model count usually. She's even beat me a couple of times. Not against my Daemons though, but they're a top tier army anyway.
I hope I don't end up facing her at NATCON, I usually play her once a week at least but mainly for the reason I will end up sleeping on the couch if i beat her. But I hope you other guys get trounced by her. She'll be taking Night Goblins.
to Mike King: No grudge matches please, she's the only person who will get good sports for throwing dice at me.
See what I have to put up with.
