rainbow dashing to your side

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 )

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

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.

Looking forward to seeing her painted and the rest of the crew done up ready for a canter onto the battlefield.

@: Rabtorian and GiraffeX: thanks guys ^_^

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 ^_^
