* Special note should go out to the granddaddy of most Table Top Role Playing Games, DungeonsAndDragons. FairForItsDay in the seventies, it allowed females in all roles. There was a problematic limitation on female characters' Strength scores in the earliest editions, but as early as 1987's AdvancedDungeonsAndDragons 2nd Edition, the rules made males and females entirely equal with females completely able to take on any Action Girl role without limits.

** The Tau also feature plenty of female rank-and-file troops in the current (early 2016) books, and there are female Tau heads in the current (early 2016) model kits. Tau wear enough armor that a male and female Tau do not look any different when suited up, and no special mention is made of Tau females in their cadres, suggesting that half of the entire Fire Caste (warriors) of the Tau Empire are Action Girls.

Likewise, no mention is made of Shadowsun's gender being unusual for a supreme commander personally leading combat. This suggests that half ''half'' of the entire Fire Caste (warriors) of the Tau Empire military are Action Girls.
