>how come you never see them in Fantasy?

By your selective capitalisation I infer that you mean Warhammer Fantasy, in which case the answer is retconned in 40k's spore reproduction to WFB Orcs and Goblin in the last iteration of their army book.

Historically I think the assumption was that hideous orc females existed somewhere in breeding pits surrounded by litters of children, much like Skaven and Beastmen. Effectively women only exist in Warhammer when they're murderous de-sexed amazons.

Orks have always I believe reproduce by shedding spores, and growing fungally. Orcs use to have females that the males would go and mate every so often, however that was retcon because it was stupid. Now the reason you only see male Skaven is because females are huge monsterous creatures that only there to breed more Skaven. They are fed warpstone and drugs to keep them docile and to make sure they can birth huge litters non stop.

This one is particularly offensive just for how gratuitous and pointless it is. Like they can invent a race of scheming rat scientists but it would be going too far for the females to have any role in society beyond the grudgingly-acknowledged need to breed more.

You fail at WH backstory.

Old Ones are present in both Fantasy and 40k history. Regardless, the Orks are the result of genetic engineering by the Snotlings (before they were stupid), and it's believed that Ork spores were on Old One ships when they came to whatever planet in the dark reaches of the galaxy that Warhammer Fantasy is on.

I don't think it's ever stated outright *what* the Old Ones were. In 40k they're a race of highly-advanced aliens that fought the Necrontyr. In Fantasy they're as Gods to mortals.

Then just read the freaking backstory in the main rulebook already. And bear in mind that this was retconned from the previous editions of Fantasy, where Orcs did indeed have females that were just never seend (see blood bowl cheerleaders).

It was never retconned away from that implication. They just began limiting it. It's been basically reduced to the Old Ones arriving in their 'magic' vessels, and Orc spores happening to be onboard.

I wouldn't be surprised if there were female skaven lurking around at the higher levels of skaven society, by virtue of having back-stabbed their way to the top (like every other skaven, naturally) and that no-one's noticed. The particularly important ones may even have some form of immunity in that regard, in that no-one would dare reveal that they're female on pain of something horrible happening to them. On the other hand, skaven science always needs more "volunteers" for their various "breeding" programs, and the right gender isn't necessarily a requirement...
