Am curious on a little something, so thought that I would come by here and ask a fairly simple question, and then give proof and images to back up my question. Ahem, are all the Troops in the 40K Universe Right Handed? Chaos Marine Squad
- Right Handed Space Marine Squad
- Right Handed Sisters of Battle
- Right Handed Dark Eldar Warrior Squad
- Right Handed Imperial Guard
- Right Handed Necron Warriors
- Right Handed Tau Firewarrior Squad
- Right Handed Kroot Squad
- Right Handed Eldar Fire Dragons
- Right Handed Eldar Guardians
- Right Handed Eldar Warp Spiders
- Right Handed Eldar Dark Reapers
- Right Handed Just a small selection there, but I'd imagine everyone sees where I am going with this..?
BOW BEFORE DARKNESS

Well alot of people are right handed, those few are not. There are a few models that are not left handed.

Well, as the majority of people are right handed, it's far simpler to create two hand weapon models facing one direction. Imagine if you had to have a left and right heavy bolter...
though it does seem as ostrachising to us lefties :(

The Eldar Fire Dragon leader is pointing with his left hand, and as people generally (or atleast I do) point with their better hand, this Fire Dragon might be left handed.
Ok...so maybe not much of an answer... but it could be something to do with fluff?
The Imperium executes any left handed person because they're a witch.
The Alien races like Tau, Kroot, Eldar and Orks have different biology so maybe they arn't left and right handed... just right handed.
Necrons... are probably something along the lines of ambidextrous given that they're robots.
Dark Eldar and Eldar share the same biology.
Well that's what I can think of. Or maybe it's just what Wraithcat said.

Yes, most of them are right handed, but with a little conversion you can change that, it's not difficult.
But just think that maybe thare are (i don't know if i'm wrong) just about 8 to 10 people hwo have created the models with GS before GWS make them wiht plastic or metal, and if this people are right handed it's easier to them to make the models right handed
I want to believe

I noticed this a year or so ago, I thought it was just a random factor back then. I didn't know much so I just ignored it. Good job though, I guess it's really just easier for them to make everything right handed?

I would say they are learned to be right handed or else it might be blasphemy. I was born as left handed, started to do the actions with left hand but was learned to do those things with right hand because my writting was awful so they made me to become right handed even if none change appeared in my writting...so I guess they teach them to do so.Btw I rather shoot with left hand and strike with melee with right. Same as most of the models with two weapons.
