    paladin72 reacted to Cubanboy in What happened to this game I love?   
    This morning I have a free minute from life so I wanted to jump on the forum and see what's up, what people are flying, what bright new people are posting, how ships repaintings are coming along and what wave 7 will offer.
    The first thread that I see is one about leaving, next about inclusive, followed about getting women to play x-wing.
    Wow what happened in 40 days, no really what happened.
    As a former 40k player I dealt with a ton of garage, from terrible sportsmanship to people threatening to kill me for playing at a different store. I was super happy to find this game with an amazing community of players and be involved in the community. As a person that joined at the start of 2014 I really loved this game. It's a table top game I play with my wife and still looking forward to teaching my son how to play.
    Maybe we can go back to talking about the game we love and not inclusion or gender talk
    Ps I asked my wife if x-wing was sexist, she said "that's dumb".

    I can't abide those Jawas. Filthy creatures.
    Sand People are fine as long as they keep the Banthas down wind...

    Love how people claiming they are all about diversity are amongst the most biased and prone to stereotype the ones they hate.

    I think this is going nowhere.  The only girl that I saw posting in here is Kyla and she says there isn't a problem.  I don't think there is a problem.  A feminist is someone who believes in gender equality.  A true feminist doesn't feel the need to overbalance one way to compensate for a lack of women playing the game.  I treat women as another person.  They either want to play or they don't.  If someone isn't being friendly to females to get them to play, it's probably someone with a personal problem that also would be rude to almost anyone who came up to play.  So, once again, being female doesn't matter.
     
    I'm done.  Have a nice thread.

    In response to the OP;
    My group is 100% male. My wife refuses to play miniatures games and that is that. The other guys who play all have girlfriends that are just not interested in the game.
    That being said, my wife and the other girls usually get together and play board games and make fun of their men who play with toy models.

    I think this is a non issue with this game. Boys and girls are different and like different things. I don't know why people can't accept that.
    There are a few exceptions and with ladies that do like this game I don't have a problem playing against. Unless they don't bathe but gender doesn't matter on that.AWWW

    I've never understood the hate of the stories being tweaked, modified and changed. Most of the beloved, and timeless, stories have evolved constantly since they were told. Robin Hood, King Arthur, and the like... as they exist now they'd be virtually unrecognizable to those from centuries past.
     
    Stories grow in the telling. It's their nature.

    paladin72 reacted to DB Draft in [OT] Some pics of my Star Wars Models   
    I started collecting some old West End Games models several months ago.  This was well before IA was announced.  I recently finished painting these up and are pretty pleased with how they turned out.
     
    Imperial Assault Force

     
    The AT-ST is actually pretty close to scale with the rest of the models.
     
    Rebel Troopers

     
    Heroes

     
    Villains

    I do not believe I have ever read a single one of your response posts where you have not been rude and hostile.  Why is it so difficult for you to express your ideas/thoughts in a constructive manner?  I have no problem that you feel the OP's post and ideas lack merit; but please try to express that idea without being so aggressive, demeaning, and hostile.
     
    Doing so would accomplish several things ... 1) the OP would be far more likely to consider your position and thoughts - i.e. you would actually be "heard", 2) others, such as myself, would be far more likely to consider it as well, and 3) it would lead to a better discussion/debate of the merits of this thread, rather than just generate a flame war.
     
    I know this has been pointed out to you numerous times, as I am not the only one that has taken offense to your approach and attitude.  Just because you disagree with just about everything ever posted on this site doesn't mean that you can't express yourself in a more effective manner.
