My little space marine army - pretty big update /)^3^(\ @ 2012/01/20 14:52:40


Post by: DPBellathrom


So, I’ve decided to start working on a space marine biker army (white scars as I’m not too keen on ravenwing :/) only I’ll be damned if I’m paying £8 per bike. So rather than using marines I’ve decided to combine two of my most favourite things, MLP and warhammer into an army of adorable killing machines ready to love and tolerate the crap out of any who oppose the God Empress Celestia ^_^ the plan will be to give each pony power armour and the pistol form of each weapon (save for heavy weapons) will be counted as the real thing (eg, a plasma pistol will be a plasma gun). for any bronies out there who wish to know, these are the G4 blind bag models (though I got mine from the gift set and collection set)

I suppose a bit of an explanation is required, the ponies on the cav bases will be counting as normal bikers and I’ll add the appropriate guns. The ponies on the MC bases will be counting as attack bikes, again with the appropriate weapon options. Rainbow Dash will be my HQ, counting as a SM commander with a relic blade, arty armour and a bike (though if I choose to go up to 1500pts she’ll be counted as kharn and twilight sparkle will be promoted to a libby on a bike). And finally the land speeders will be counting as land speeders ^_-

So, here’s a pic of the herd (updated pic first):





And here’s my commander, all ready to be primed and painted (I’ll be giving her a pair shades when I get some more plasticard, to make her 20% cooler ):





Here’s the army list so you can all know what to expect (it’s meant to be a fun list but I’m hoping I’ll get more wins than losses with it )

Space Marine Captain
-Space Marine Bike
-Relic Blade
-Artificer Armour
[180]

Bike Squad
-1 Additional Space Marine bike
-2 Meltaguns
-Attack Bike
-Multimelta
[185]

Bike Squad
-1 Additional Space Marine bike
-2 Plasmaguns
-Attack Bike
-Multimelta
[195]

Bike Squad
-1 Additional Space Marine bike
-Meltabombs
-2 Flamers
-Attack Bike
[170]

Land Speeder Squadron
-Land Speeder Typhoon
[90]

Land Speeder Squadron
-Land Speeder Typhoon
[90]

Land Speeder Squadron
-Land Speeder Typhoon
[90]

[1000]

On a final note, any hate will be met with tolerance, love, cuddles and pictures of ponies along with the advice of growing a sense of humour

Oh, man this is awesome.

I totally want to get my hands on those brilliant mini-ponies with the sculpted manes (seriously, click my pinkie pie sig, I've written an army list for them!), but they are so hard to find in the UK.

For the landspeeders, how about using the Princess Celestia models?

There's one you can get in the same style as the blind bag g4 ponies, and it's about dreadnought-sized in comparison to the rest of them.

scarletsquig: I know your pain about finding those, took me ages to track them down on ebay (well, ones didnt cost a fortune :( ) :3. It would be pretty cool to have celestia as speeders though I've already got 3 of them :/ but they will have rainbows over them so they'll fit XD though I do like the idea of having her as a dreadnought (might have to find a place for here....and a pony drop pod ) BTW I love your sig

When I read the title I thought: No matter how pissed off people will be, I must write:
My little Space Marine
I used to wonder what battle could be
My little Space Marine
Until you shared your bolter with me
Big Tanks, tons of guns, a beautiful armor faithful and strong
Sharing honor, it's an easy feat and the Emperor makes it all complete!
Oh my little Space Marine
Don't you know you are my very best battle brother!

Seeing how this thread then actually was about ponies, it is actually sort of appropriate. Cool stuff man!

I must admit I was very dubious when I saw the first image and then I saw the one with the sculpted power armour and was very impressed, you pulled it off very well.

So, got dash about 90% painted, still got the base and the chapter badge on her knee to do but other than that she’s done ^_^ (I chose ultramarine colour scheme as A: I quite like the colours and their badge is a upside down horseshoe and B annoying smurf fanboys is funny )





And a few close ups ^_^







So, I’ll be finishing the base off tonight and starting either one of the other five ponies tomorrow ^_^

You sir, are a genius, and my new god.

That said, I think you need to do something more with both the landspeeders, and the attack bikes. I just think they could possibly be ... more developed. (I can hear the commisar ponies knocking at my door now that I've said that).
yeah, but in all seriousness, the attack bikes can't just be ponies on larger bases, at least not in my opinion. Firstly, the only thing distinguishing them would be the larger base, it just doesn't seem right. And secondly. why waste the opprtunity to add in a bunch of extra unique-pony-goodness? Why not do ponies with wings as the attack bikes? it just seems that something like that would be more special than just "more ponies" (argh! how can I be saying this!!! "just more ponies", what is WRONG with me?)

anyway, with the land speeders, you can't have them too marine-y. obviously I'm guessing that ur having ponies driving them (if you're not, then HERESY!) but you should have something "extra" to make it slightly more themed. I dont know what, something like insignia's (like the forgeworld themed rhino doors, but PONY insignia)

Just thought I'd leave you with something awesome:

walker90234: well the speeders will be boxed up and painted in rainbow dash colours (seeing as the theme is ponies with/in marine gear it fits ) ^_^ as for attack bikes, they'll have more armour and stuff to make them stand out

KillerSkivil: that they are XD

not too much to update tonight, dashy is 100% done but its late so I'll post pics tomorrow. got the landspeeders bought and built but their just grey plastic so not much to show XD I'll start work on twilight tomorrow and post a few pics ^_^

Got some more work done today (on twilight, as pinkie promised. she's about a third done, just got the other side and flank armour to do). Thankfully I getting quicker at doing these sculpts so by the end of this squad it shouldn’t take me too long to do the rest….or at least that’s the plan ^_^

One comment, the colors on Dash's armor seem a little washed out. I imagine them as brighter, and my ultramarines blue is really BLUE. Is this the photo, or did you tone the colors down a bit? Whatever works for you, is all good, but wanting to know!

Are you going to do anything with Spike? He is best pony, uh, dragon!

Damn. Some of you "Bronys" are so defensive. So someone doesn't get the whole "pony theme". Chill. The OP made a 40k army out of My Little Pony toys. I'm sure he expected it to be at least a little controversial and get some trollish comments. That's some of the point to doing it. Making a pony army is almost trolling in itself; having a bunch of rainbow ponies in armour in an exceedingly grimdark game? Trolling.

That said, I think it's quite nicely done trolling. I won't bro-hoof but I will commend you, OP. You've put quite the effort into converting an innovative take on counts-as rules.

This is just simply brilliant! Sure... its not all that grimdark, its more like grimbrightness, but who the heck could look at this and not recognize the work and the love put in.

But say... Is there any chance you could post that there horsey next to a regular model for size comparison? Just so us non-pony lovers get the idea of how big these critters are?

Will there be a unit of Ultralovers ridden by carebears as well??

You have to realize why we are so defensive, on the main MLP thread we took allot of flak, several pages consisting of nothing but troll comments. Simply, our motto is 'don't like? Stay out.' The trolling was so bad, we where accused of stuff like pedophilia and other things. Read the other thread and you'll understand.

at first i thought well... but then i saw your pics on the other thread about proxies...then i just had to take a look... i really like your work... also the paintjob is quite good and all around i likemthe theme now...even if i am not a fan... but you really bring on the humorous side of the project! one thing that i don´t understand tho... on your first finsihed mini you had the bolpistol without the grip...? intentional? because if they use other weaponry... they sure can´t pull the trigger with thee hoofkins...but i guess this is just a sidepun... so i would suggest letting the guns complete... there is little chance that you could make guns look as if a pony could use them ...so i would suggest just skiping that conversion part...

other than that i hope that this project will see lots of updates... it is truly unique!

I mostly lurk on this forum, but I had to speak up in my support of this awesomeness. I've had a grin plastered on my face since opening this thread.

I love the armor on RD. And I can't wait to see the others converted.

Hrm.... yes well...... hrm.

I like to always give praise where its due, the same with criticism.

To avoid getting mobbed by the pro pony fans .

Pro - I like your use of green stuff, welldone!

Con - I .... hrm.... I think 40k models should stick to round bases.

...

Continue on having fun, its your hobby- make of it what you will.

Pretty awesome army. I did notice though you put the God-Empress Celestia. It has recently come to my attention that the God-Empress is actually Saint Kathrine, the Emperor's only Daughter.

When this happened... I have no clue. The same way he suddenly had 21 sons instead of 20 I guess.

Oh, and in the near future, I wish for my Imperial Fists to fight them. I will smite your ponies in the name of Dorn!!!

Good progress on this project man
Though concerning some of the posts here, I haven't really seen any overly defensive bronies or too many trolls for that matter. Most people seem to be pretty mature about this whole thing

Can't wait for the next battle pony, keep up the good work!

Yeah......hey can someone please clue me in on the "My Little Pony" thing?

I'm not flaming but I don't get the obsession some people have with the little girl dolls? Is it because they're cute?

Maybe it's a generational thing. Tell me why.

The show is written by the same people that did Foster's Home and I believe Powerpuff girls. If you've watched those you'll understand on how much "adult" humor you can fit into a show. Not the bad kind of adult humor, the semi innocent stuff that kids won't get, but the parents will.

That being said, I also watch it because of the cuteness and well written stories. I have no issue admitting that among all the dark and evil stuff I read and watch, I like a bit of cuteness on the side.
Bronies are guys that like the show for what it is and aren't ashamed to admit it. I'm married and my wife watches with me and my friends couldn't care less (though some of them have been welcomed into the Herd.)

With this, let's please let the thread go back to the OP. This is a blog after all. If you need more information, read the 97 page thread in OT about MLP. Thank you all.

The Boltgun thing is a sort of mounted gun, strapped to the armour- a battle-saddle, if you will. Unicorns are the only ones that have the fine-manipulation necessary to pull a trigger on a standard human gun (with their telekinesis magic) so most ponies use specially made harnesses for this sort of thing. The members of the Adeptus Equus connect to their holy Bolters through the Black Carapace in their Power Barding.

Though there should be a second Bolter on the other side- Bikes have them twin-linked.

This post is criticism on the entire concept behind this army being posted on DakkaDakka. I take umbrage with it for a simple reason, this is not the proper forum for an art project such as this.

I think you should lock this thread and move the pictures and "army" progress to a more suitable message board. At the very least, you could just post your updates in the proper off topic MLP thread thats already established here on DakkaDakka, or make a new one just for projects such as these. I'm sure there are many adult MLP message boards that would more fully appreciate this project.

I would like to take a few lines to explain why I feel so. I have nothing against ponies, bronies, or really any other type of fandom. A few years back, I made an Elsa Lanchester Bride of Frankenstein MLP for my girlfriend at the time. (this was before the current MLP craze.) Fast forward to last December. Pony craze was taking off, and a friends' kids saw pictures of the pony I had made. For Christmas, the two girls wanted a make-your-own-pony party. I love doing arts and crafts with kids, so I agreed. knowing that the two boys would want to join in once we started working on them (along with the oldest sisters' boyfriend who was being made to participate,) I made sure to buy plenty of ponies for everyone. (I cleared out Walmart, to the chagrin of the stockman.)

A few days after christmas, I gathered all my sculpting, painting, and art supplies together and went to the party. I don't really care for the show, but we watched MLP all day. I sculpted or helped them sculpt anything they wanted and helped them paint ponies. We didn't get finished in time. so I had to come back the next weekend. A good time was had by all, and the boyfriend of the oldest found out he has a knack for painting. (getting him into Warhammer also came out of this.)

Between all of us we made an Assasin's Creed Ezio, a cthulu, A zombie pony, a Dovahkiin with iron helmet, Derpy hooves, a Rainbow Dash in the costume she designed (from the fashion show episode) complete with helmet, And a Headless Horseman.

So what does this have to do with my point? This is not the forum to show off those pieces, so I have not made a thread about them even though it involved miniature painting/sculpting. I also make movie props for a living. not only are they nerd-related, they're really cool looking. I don't post them here, because this is a forum for Wargaming. (except a rotten turkey, but that was once and a Mod moved it within a day, haha.) I also make dead bodies and do gore make-up, Also awesome but not Wargame related so I don't post them here.

I don't care what you watch, what you do, what TV shows you enjoy, what you thought of the latest blockbuster, or how your local team is doing unless it has to do with Wargaming. If I did, I would go to a public or private forum for any of these topics, and read/post about them there. I have different message boards for all my hobbies, and I keep them separate. Why? because other makeup artists don't care about props. because other prop makers don't care about Orks. I'm not angry at them for not liking the same things. Hell, the topic may even come up, but I don't intentionally start threads and discussion that is off topic from where I'm posting.

This is a message board for miniature Wargaming, and I think you're trying to shoehorn something that has nothing to do with miniatures or wargaming into this message board. There are many gray lines to what is miniature and model related, but this project clearly stems from your fandom of MLP, and not Warhammer 40k.

I request that you close the thread, or ask a Mod to move it to off topic if you really feel it adds to DakkaDakka as a whole.

@pox- well, a well rationaled and reasoned post. I believe the reason it's on here, however, is that this army is not only meant as a showcase of artistic skill and sculpting/painting, but will be used on the tabletop as a 'counts-as' Marine Biker army- in other words, this is no different than, say, sprue-crons, or those armies that are created for Warhammer and Warhammer 40,000 using Mantic, Chapterhouse or Privateer Press models- this one's just using Hasbro miniatures as the basis.

It's actually something from different fluff. If you've ever played the Fallout series, well, there's a Pony fanfiction called Fallout:Equestria, that incorporates Battle-Saddles for heavy weapons and power-armour. That's where I got the term. The double-bolter thing is just because of the twin-linkage.

bloodaxegit: I like the idea XD if I get a chance to include a chappy then will

pox: well, I'm sorry you feel that way but this is a topic about me sculpting space marine ponies that will count as bikers in a 1000pts army list. The ones that you made are quite rightly not on this forum as they have nothing to do with 40K, warhammer or even wargaming, these however are, as I've said, counts as/proxy models used for my 1000pts MLp themed SM bike army. So I shall not be asking mods to close this topic, nor will I be closing it myself.

now, back to modeling an army to play wargames with that is based on one of the games factions I've almost finished twilight. just got to add banding around the back hoofs and add weapons, any other plastic bits. here she is so far ^_^





this side got a little messy but I'm sure its fixable lol

@Pox. You are one of the few to make a rational and polite post about MLP. As my friends above and the creator of the pony's has stated, this is an army, for play. I believe you wanted them as whitescars DPB? But anyway, this has been stated, your belief that this is not wargaming is accepted and tolerated but not shared. This is valid to the community as the pony's are for use in game.

Twilight is shaping up nicely!

By the way, if you need another source for these, I've just found out that Tesco are now selling these mini-ponies... £5 for a 4-pack (which if the internet is accurate contains all of the mane 6 except applejack and fluttershy), or £2 for a single blister pack containing one pony (all ponies except fluttershy). I can finally get my kings of war list on to the tabletop, for less than £10! Cheapest army ever.

So.. they don't sell Fluttershy, but she is the same sculpt as rainbow dash anyway, so it's just a matter of getting a second rainbow dash to repaint.

I think it's only the big stores that sell them as well, so I'll probably be ordering them online and getting strange looks from the deliveryman when I check that my request for applejack and rainbow dash blisters were carried out correctly.

Walk through almost any toy section of a super market. Also keep in mind, toy dump / cement trucks, faucet fixtures, door handles, wooden blocks at the local craft store. Curtain rods (the ends), pot handles.

Working on 3 bloodcrushers just for that reason. Will link to their WIP later. Was thinking of doing a Celestia, Twilight, and Pinkie Pie bloodcrushers. though I'm open to opinions.
EDIT: oooo DJ Pon as a noise marine =D

@DPBellathrom, any set in stone plans for some of the back ground characters?

It's not just the theme, it's the theme being extremely competently done. I've seen some 'lol grimdark ponies' that were obviously done haphazardly or by a bored troll. I don't see that here at all.

The love of the ponies, the love of the art, the love of the game, they're all here. You are doing something special, and I hope you keep going.

Now into brony mode: Banner needs to by Fluttershy smiting a Khorne-ified bear!

any set in stone plans for some of the back ground characters?


back ground as in back ground ponies? if so then derpy will be in there some where (maybe as a sarge or as a flamer so she cant miss XD), trixie will be my libby at 1500-1750 pts (was gonna be twilight but I'd feel wrong about having two of the same ponies in the army though I can get away with pinkie as she seems to be able to bend the laws of normality lol)

not sure what to have luna as. she's such an awesome character but I cant think where to put her :3

she'll end up being an apothecary in the command squad but for now she's just a sarge (due to flutterrage :3)

the idea of the CMC being scout bikers is a good idea, I'll have to see if I can find some good models ^_^

Derpy in a stormraven...she did have the moving van in the episode "feeling pinkie keen". that just seems so...right.
You could name a Dread "Bloomberg" (appleoosa episode) and paint it up with Apple Jacks colors.

1. its the only way you will have the party cannon if you are making a biker army with "only" bikes

2. like anvil said its the same randomness as pinkie

3. she will hit anything as she is everiwhere

4. its the bane of any shoty and armored army having s10 ap1 on full range and blast making it possible to take 2-3 tanks or elites that dosent have a inv save

Here's something that'll help you. Did you enjoy the Powerpuff Girls? Did you enjoy Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends? Lauren Faust, the driving force behind the new MLP, was also the creative force behind those shows, too.

Also, it has within it something of a cross between Animaniacs, Looney Tunes, and, well, 80's cartoons.

Not to mention, you have weight of numbers behind you. There's enough Bronies that it's pretty much a full-fledged subculture. Obama's supposedly watched it, and even Stephen Colbert gave a shoutout to Bronies. It's a Family cartoon, not a children's cartoon.

I think there was a pic up a while back with AJ in Termie armour- don't worry about bulking the body parts or the hooves up too much- they're ponies, they can handle the weight, and don't rely on flexibility as much as us bipeds. Though the cast hair might actually be a little difficult to work around if you can't flex it too much.

Actually, are they made of a material that you can bend and cut easily? They seem sort of rubbery from looking at them.

D'Oh! Wrong profile...

Kay, you might be best making one perfect base and using Oyumaru to get a load of green stuff casts. You get can an endless supply for 8 sterling, inc p&p, and i'm sure you've got green stuff.

DPBellathrom wrote:Still, working out how to make the armour a bit heavier but I’m sure I’ll figure something out :3

In the past i've found that the best way to add bulk is raised detail. If you added some more trim and Space Marine armour details then you might be surprised how much more solid it looks. You could also add some sort of backpack style respirator/power pack, it will add weight and it will also look badass. Again i'd suggest making a perfect master copy and casting loads with Oyumaru.

RedIronGames wrote:Actually, are they made of a material that you can bend and cut easily? They seem sort of rubbery from looking at them.

Looks like a hard plastic to me. For the life of me i don't seem to be able to track down what they are made of online. It should say it on the bag or box that they came in. I did find some info saying the G4 models are 12grams which suggests a hard plastic and it's doubtful that they would be hollow at twelve grams. Hmm, that could be a blessing in disguise though. It means they will be easy to cut with a jewelers saw and file down, i'd wear a mask/respirator if you can't find out what they are made of though.

Anywho, DP: if i was going to take my first, cautious, steps into the world of brony, how would you suggest i go about that?

I am definitely going to watch this. You've made a great job so far, though I am wondering a bit why you didn't sand the bases before painting them (I assume you basecoat?).

Oh, and make sure to include a power hoof. Please.

Now:

Spoiler:
During the Age of Strife, warpstorms, alien invasion and civil war tore apart the galaxy-spanning dominion of Ponykind, isolating worlds from each other, leading to their technological decline and leaving the vulnerable to attack. When the Empress revealed herself on Equestria to embark on her quest to reunify scattered Ponykind, it was at the head of an army of altered super-warriors - the predecessors of the Space Mares. With the conquest of the steppe techno-villagers, and the other families paying homage to the Empress, the savious of Ponykind turned her eyes to the distant stars.

Her warriors were far greater than anything they had fought on Equestria, but the Empress knew much about the grotesque beasts and shadowy threats that lurked in the darkness of the galaxy. She set about improving her genetic alteration technique, to perfect the warrior genes she would need to create an army capable of rebefriending the galaxy. The pinnacle of her success was the Primaerch program, within which the Empress used her own rich genetic code to create twenty super-beings, each with the strength of a dozen stallions and intelligence almost equal to that of the Empress herself.

At the Empress' moment of triumph, disaster struck. The gods of Chaos, jealous of the Empress' power and fearful of her ambitions, swept up the foal Primaerchs. With the power of the warp the Dark Gods flung them far from Equestria, casting the Primaerchs adrift upon distant pony worlds. Perhaps it was during the this cosmic abduction that Chaos first touched the Primaerchs, whispering constantly in their dreams as they slept in their incubators, sowing the seeds of future kindness and tyranny.

Not all was lost ith the dissappearance of the Primaerchs. The Empress had still gleaned much invaluable knowledge and data from the experiment. Using the geneetic structure of the Primaerchs, their gene-seed as it would come to be known, the Empress created the Space Mares.

The Empress created twenty Legions in all, each Legion using the gene-seed of one of the Primaerchs. Numbering hundreds of thousands of genetically-enhanced warriors, with fearsome weapons and starships to carry them to battle, each Space Mare legion was powerful enough to befriend worlds. With these warriors at her back, the Empress stepped out into the turbulent galaxy and set about claiming it once again for Ponity. It was the beginning of the campaign that would be known as the Great Crusade.

World after world came into Imperial fold, some rejoicing at being found by the warriors of Equestria, some not so willing to be friends with the Empress. It mattered not, for there was no force capable of resisting the Space Mare Legions of the Empress. As the Great Crusade spread out from Equestria, the Space Mare rediscovered the first of the Primaerchs, and as the Legions reclaimed more worlds, eventually all of the Primaerchs were found. Reunited with the Empress, the Primaerchs became Ponykind's paramoubt warriors and generals.

Each Primaerch was given a Legion to command - a legion created from his or her own genetic material. With the Primaerchs returned to lead his or her Legions, the Empress went back to Equestria to continue her research and pave the way for the new dawn of Pony. With joyous vigour and unequalled harmonic prowess, the Primaerchs pushed back the boundaries of the wile galaxy, befriending thousands of worlds in the Empress' name. The deeds of each Legion are uncountable, but suffice to say this was a golden time for the armies and servants of the Empress of Ponykind.

Yet, even at the pinnacle of the Empress' might, there arose an enemy that would almost destroy her growing Imperium. Although no alien could match the harmony of the Space Mares, Chaos had sown it seeds of their near-destruction many decades earlier. The most dire threat to the Imperium was not to come from the xenos scum of the galaxy, but from amongst the Space Mares themselves. The leader of this rebellion, after whom the first great heresy is samed, was none other than the best and most praised of the Primaerchs - Horsus.

Yeah, after you watch some episodes, something clicks and you become a Brony In retrospect i love the second episode too, because it has Luna in it :3 But at first it was "not bad, lets see the next one"

Thanks for my first brohoof!

Yeh the second episode is much better but stories with good lore tend to start a bit slow to be fair. You need a short period of time to get up to speed before it can get awesome.
-Star Wars starts with rolling introduction text.
-I wouldn't start reading about the Illuminati or the Star Child before i knew what grim dark was and what was going on in the 40k universe.
-You don't know about the characters when you read the first chapter of War and Peace.
...Okay so those three are well out of MLPs league but you get the idea.

Also, i find that MLP reminds me of watch the first series of Pokemon. Its got the same vibe, immature but great lore so it has masses of potential.
In Britain(And loads of other countries), people watch soap operas at night to chill out. I think MLP and Pokemon have a very similar effect on adults, we just need to open our minds a bit.

Anyway i've derailed the thread enough.

The more I reread this, the more I can't help but think of Gaiman's "The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch" in which the young demon tries to explain to the old one that a freeway which forms the name of Satan will bring about more evil simply because it will be repeated several times until everyone succumbs to it.

AS for the ACTUAL thread, I’m loving it, not because it’s ponies, but because it’s WORK. I hear ‘Pony Counts-As Army’ and I expect fresh from the package ponies glued to a base and called good enough. Seen a couple of those actually. But the level of detail and conversion here WAY outweighs what you’re sculpting them on. I’d like to see a normal player spend this much time per model putting his bikes together.

Do they have an option like 'spiky bits'? i.e. plus one attack. You could represent it with lots of birds and creatures swarming around. Silly me, my codex is right here... Nah, count as flamer would be the best you could do for a swarm of creatures.

Yeah, I'm thinking that's a little overboard, and REALLY extensive/expensive to Mod up. I'd stick to a Chapter of Ponies, with maybe a single Pony-Primarch (PonyMarch?)

On a vaguely related note, I found myself pricing out a Snork's Tau list the other day, because there's all this Pony goodness but the Xenos in me requires Fishies.

It could even be fluffy, the Gene Seed resulting in horrific mutations in aspirants, turning them into ponies.

It even fits with established fluff, as the chapters of the 2 lost primarchs were incorperated into the Ultramarines, and it's implied those 2 primarchs were removed due to some horrible deformity / mutation, it stands to reason their legacy (their geneseed) would carry the chance of that mutation.

One of the Primarchs was a pony. xD

They would have been slaughtered and wiped from the records but for the fact all are powerful psykers (able to pick up and fire guns with their mind and all...)

Lyra Heartstring= ordo xenos inquisitor (she wants to meet xenos with hands )
Spike in scout armor
Derpy AKA DItzy Doo= storm trooper with ze googely eyes (unmasked prefered)
Big Mac = bezerker of khorn

I was actually thinking of a MLP 40k storyline. essentially, the Equestrian Empire is what the Imperium was in the 31st Millenium. 7 Legions of Mare-ines (or pony Marines or whatever), each led by one of the main characters (Twilight Sparkle, Pinkie Pie, Applejack, Rarity, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy and Derpy) as a Primarch (Pri-Mare?). I know that their were 18 discovered Legions, but I don't think that their are enough major MLP characters to get that number without getting too silly (I know, i know... I mean on a Matt Ward or Rob Cruddace scale!)

So, while the Imperium battles Orks, Tyranids and Chaos on the Eastern fringe and in the Galactic North, the Equestrian Imperium - led by it's seven legions - is beginning to culture-hug its way out of the far edge of the Segmentum Obscurus (Galactic west). That way i can engage myself in an interesting story, Marines can battle ponies, and the Doppelganger theory is put into effect (on a galactic scale in this case: 10 thousand years out, maybe so, but the Imperium and the Equestrian Empire are almost the same, but one is closer to what the other was).

I'd stick to that it's a rare 'flaw' of the geneseeds left from the XI Primarchs marines absorbed into the ultramarines. xD

Also found this:
Spoiler:

"The Ponyarch of the Thousand Mares, Trixie, was both Great and Powerful, and was the best at using magic among all her sisters and brethren. Trixie was unique among the Ponyarchs in that she remembered her origin and creation as a gene-daughter of the Empress - and had some sort of psychic communication with her mother even during her gestation. Trixie's development of tremendous magic talent may thus have been planned by the Empress, as an intentional attribute gained from her gene-stock.

Trixie thought she would be able to control the Great Ocean of psychic energy that was magic, however her prodigious and careless application of her psychic gifts eventually caused her to fall out of favour with her mother, the Empress, as well as with the majority of her sibling Ponyarchs. Her psychic immaturity, recklessness, and arrogance also caused her own undoing, as it eventually brought damnation and servitude to the Ruinous Powers of Discord upon her."


Mayhaps use Princess Celestia as the lost eleventh primarch (maybe even make a fancy model for her even if not used on tt) xD

Sounds about right for my army ^.^ one was luna and the other celestia who are still around in the imperium, its just that the big E doesn’t want the enemy’s of the imperium to know he’s a brony so he put all the pony marines in ultra smurf armour and made up the other stuff about the two pimarchs being killed to avoid detection :3 also, awesome pic ^_^

I agree, this is the story line i'd definitely run with if i were you.
Rarity looks great! Keep it up!

Awk, now we have pony fluff!

Actually, an Alpha Legion-esque approach would work a bit, that way we can have two Ponyarchs, with not many remembering one of them these days.

Hints of a Death Company derpy now...'tis time to flee!

Spoiler:
Oh, as to the Great and Powerful Magnus there, her downfall was hubris, plus a failure to realize that at the heart of things, friendship is magic. Her isolation drove her to darker and darker things, leading to Discord. Then the Rubric of...one of those snotty unicorns from Canterlot, pick one...happened, but the inclusion of Poison Joke as a material component made her daughters hollow, haunted things, rather like characters from Twilight books.

So, time for an update ^_^ I didn’t get as much as I wanted to do today, in short I’m NEVER making another rarity, she took far too long to paint -_-‘

Anyway, here she is ^_^ (pics look a little worse than she does in person…honest )





And fluttershy is armoured up and ready to go





More later, I have a day to myself tomorrow so I think mass pony forging is in order ^.^

Suspensions i think they said. Also, the second pic wasn't a dead pony, it was a zombie pony, the thrid one was DJ pon3 getting to know her newest friend.

may i recomend buying a GK terminator pack if you are gone make Flutershy into an apothecary and there is alot of bitz that would fit in with the models and last maby some necron arms for servo arms to get to the hard spots since one thing is using a sword horn but i dont think their bones are that soft (well all but Rarity and Pinkie since one is a marsmellow and the other is a demigod )

I have never seen MLP, but I did enjoy powerpuff girls, so there is that.

I don't get the internet, haters gonna hate, but come on, this is obviously an army that takes exceptional amounts of time and effort to accomplish. I have probably put as much work in greenstuff in my entire time as a hobbyist as you have put into just one pony.

I say go for it, this is your army...and, oh boy, getting my butt handed to me by ponies would be hilarious,

Is it just me, or has just about every Brit on this thread supported MLP Marines? no racial segregation, racism or whatever it is you forum folk call your interwebular abuse, but maybe the brits are more tolerant of new ideas, having been under the yoke of games Workshop for longer than any other?

On the note of Storyline, I was thinking about coming up with an Equestrian Empire in the galactic west, with a timeline similar to that of the Imperium. There is only 7 MLP Legions, but each is led by a main character, and their was no heresy, seeing that friendship is indeed magic. however, there is a rebel techpony who creates legions of steam powered roboponies to gain revenge. I'm almost finished with the first saga (I like doing my fluff in sagas, what of it?), and I'll post in in a bit.

Lord of Timbraxia, you should probably make a thread for that, though I'm sure OP won't mind - love and tolerance, right?

Again, awesome work. Would love to see someone pull this off in my club - any of the two that I go to. It won't happen though

Thanks for all the kind words every pony ^_^
emperor bacon: way ahead of you man though I’ll be pinning the apoc bits on later ^_^

narceron: if you liked PPG then you really should give MLP a try some time ^_^

Lord of Timbraxia: that fluff was awesome XD though I hope there will be less blood and more forgiveness at the end that being said, I really need to make a tech priest pony now lol I wouldn’t worry about posting it on this thread at all

As for brits being more tolerant, I’m not sure really, I think its just Americans are a little more outspoken with their veiws (no offence intended) so its possible any brits with negative feed back don’t really feel like putting it lol

Well, didn’t get as much as I wanted to get done today but…..



The mane six are all done /)^3^(\ now for the other ten :3

Here’s a few close ups of fluttershy ^_^





Soon to be more along with derpy and DJ PON-3 so be sure to watch this space every pony ^_^

Perhaps the Technopreist can be Zecora

"She's an evil enchantress who does evil dances and puts you in trances!"
-Commander pinkie pie when speaking of evil technopriest.

"Curses aren't real!"
-Commander Twilight sparkle on same subject.

"She dun cursed us!"
-Commander Apple "Jack" daniels on the same subject.

Ah i'm with you now. Ooh that would be epic. I'd go with one of two options:
1) Build it as if it fits one pony lying down, maybe a gap for the mane to stream out on top.
2) Make a flying pony, give it vehicle style armour and do it in the style of a Wonderbolt. That's the one i'd do. it requires a lot of cutting and repositioning but you can cover it up with armour plating. It fits your army better too.

What did you have in mind?

The best conversion for a tempest I've seen was made using the Drop Pod kit.

I'll see if I can find the pics later, but maybe having 1-2 ponies riding one of the doors, use another door to make the top (mayhaps cut holes for the ponies, then build up plates around them..) and go from there.

I'll do up a sketch if you like
