According to scant few allusions, it seems making procedure of Pseudo-Astartes is quite different from normal, general Astartes. Thus I personally think it probably works on females.

Female Spartans do exist(and we know only to well average technology level of Imperium far exceeds that of UNSC). Female Mechanicum/Mechanicus(30k and 40k appellation, respectively) Adepts do exist. Thus it is reasonable to assume female Pseudo-Astates could exist in 40k-verse by any means.

...... If you're serious, this is quite possibly the single dumbest thing I have ever read. However, if your joking and what you actually mean that 40k is a fictional universe in which you can do pretty much anything you want, regardless of real world science or rules established by other fictional universes, then sure.

The Website kept telling me that my profile was only 80% complete without creating a signature. Ain't no website going to tell me I was a lazy shit, no sir.

The real question that everyone is avoiding is ... was she attractive? I mean, cool she plays 40k and all but do ya want to put your penis in her?

Fuck!?! I am such an asshole. I still want an answer, but I am willing to admit that I am a dick.

OT: I actually think that is probably the best way to explain FSM that she wants to play. Fucking brilliant actually! Guy probably thought she was having a go at him by calling them pseudo-astartes and did not realize that the fluff actually provides the pseudo-astartes as an actual thing. Good for her.

Threw a fucking tank? WTF? That is the same as me taking a torch to my Vance and Hines pipes for my Harley! I really can not understand just pissing away money like that. Fucktard.

I indeed joked about the UNSC/Spartan thing(well, it is complicated. I will explain exact meaning later). But possibility about existence of female pseudo-Astartes(I consistently said Pseudo-Astartes, NOT the full-fledged, 'normal' Astartes)? I am deadly serious, really. I don't think it is possible creating actual female Astartes, of course. Because it is canonically, irrevocably, utterly impossible, I always well know that fact. But in the 40k verse, reinforcing, augmenting and altering normal human through genetically, surgically and mechanically is definitely possible. All of pseudo-Astartes is 30k era is augmented precisely these ways by Mecanicum, without exception. As I already said, it seems pseudo-Astartes making process is fundamentally different from that of normal Astartes, and they could never become 'genuine' Astartes. Let's see. If Emperor delivered Angron's gladiator army, then his 'sisters' would have been become pseudo-Astartes, no doubt. That it is. And one of the Mecanicum minor factions, Organicists, is a group of Tech-priests who esteemed biological enhancement as being equal in value with the cybernetics, a somewhat radical if not heretical position among the adherents of the Cult Mechanicus. That is another reason(although kidding is the majoris in area of Spartan, certainly), I cited both Spartan and Mecanicum as an feasible example-if they really want, they could devise similar means augmenting normal human to become pseudo-Astartes. That is actually quite mundane conduct they are doing on their own not-so-weak flesh, and at least partly because of that practices they are categorized as 'radical', after all.

Alternatively, we could all remember that at some point someone just made up the fluff we take as cannon. There are plenty of examples where GW change their own fluff because...it's made up. It's fiction. So who gives a fuck if you hold to a DIFFERENT fiction, especially if it helps that person to feel more included in the hobby.

My contribution to the Renegades saga. Check it out

My growing IIIrd legion stuff:

Also my 30k tacticas, for those of you interested:
