Ponyhammer Races - Sketches by Sanity-X Ponyhammer Races - Sketches by Sanity-X
I've come a long way from my first explorations of the Ponyhammer idea [link] and [link] , so I thought it might be nice to revisit some of the first races I penned down (especially the Space Mareines!) and add a few more people have been asking for.

They're still pretty rough (even in my standards!), so I'll see whether I can get enough time to clean them up as I go along. Cheers~ ^_^

ps: I tried to make everything to scale, so all of them should be relative to each other in terms of size. I think the Mareines look properly larger and chunkier than their pony brethren now, and will you take a gander at the size of that Hog! XD

I'm a little fuzzy on the scale of a Ork Nob in relation to a Marine, but that is how big I think they are atm. ^_^

Good work, sir.  It seems you put a lot of thought into adapting the imperial forces to fit with equestrian values (truly Saint Pinky is wise) and coming up with oodles of horse pun names to boot. 

I understand that the Life/Deathwatch, Grey Knights/Dames and Space Marines represent paragons of virtue in both universes but how did you adapt the Ordo Hereticus/Sisters of Battle?  An organisation built on ruthlessness and suspicion that uses torture on it's own people seems a difficult fit for a empire where Celestia is alive and not stuck in a fancy freezer.

I can hear the poshness looking at that Eldeer.  AND I LOVE IT.
"Ahhh yes, the 'immortal Celestia'. Tell me, my little pony, we do not see our gods for they are died at the hands of a god, what excuse does your pitiful warlord-seer of old have for not showing his face?"
(Now I'm imagining Eldeer Khaine.... hmmmm)

yeah, makes more sense the dao are very spindly equinish creatures or more rodentish creatures,

the hog nob is an ally...? (I'm all for the wiser races working together instead of constant war, but still... )

i love the bridesmaid and far-seer designs

:lol: Let us all follow the heroic example of Saint Pinkie (sadly martyred in the God-Empress's name at the conclusion of the Cupcake Pacification campaign on Sugaris Cuben Prime)!
