Space Mare-ine by Sanity-X Space Mare-ine by Sanity-X
One very lucky Equestrian Guard conscript is in fangasm mode atm. ^_^

---

I've wanted to make a scale comparison of a regular pony and a Space Mare-ine, just to get the feel right. Probably the first of my explorations, and definitely not the last.

I've also tried to make the Space Mare-ines much more mature, befitting their stature of the God-Empress living weapons.

Very good!  The Ultramare seems amused.
A sewing cutiemark will no doubt come in handy in the Guard.  Useful for patching all the bullet holes that somehow keep appearing in your uniform.

I'm not sure if Celestia would approve of the concept of conscription but I suppose it takes large numbers to keep the all mad spacepigs and changeling xenos out of the Pony Imperium.

I dare say that the availability of magic and the simply bigger hearts of ponies would drive them to patch together their wounded so veterans survive much longer and trainees are trained  to peak need before being sent to fight: the imperium could do the same if they weren't so stagnant and sup-par planned

Very amused. ^_^ 

As much as the Imperial Guard are the average Joes in a flak jacket, the Equestrian Guard are the average ponies in flak saddles. It's not uncommon for them to have talents that don't relate to them putting a bayonet in someone's eye. XD

Celestia absolutely hates the idea of conscription, but has long since accepted the fact that it is necessary to keep her many realms safe from all the mad spacepigs and xenos scum out there.

Captain Titia of the ultra mares? XD I would love to see her in action.

love the size comparison...although I expect space mareines to be bigger.

I wanted to retain their elegant and feminine forms, because the Empress demands that her Space Mareines be absolutely FABULOUS!

Their armour however, is something I'll be bulking up as I explore this idea further. ^_^

Now I have a question... I am assuming that the God-Empress of Equestrian-kind is an alicorn correct? So if Space Mare-ines are given her genes, would that make them alicorns too?

Love this concept by the way. Once again, proving ponies can mix with anything.

:iconsanity-x:
Sanity-X Featured By Owner Oct 5, 2011  Student Artist
The God-Empress is indeed an alicorn, but only her Primares will have inherit her alicorn gifts. Her Mareines will be whatever they were during recruitment, Earth Ponies, Unicorns or Pegasi.

Thanks for the comment, nukacola! That's apparently yellow. Yellow Nuka Cola~ ^_^

If I was an Earth Pony I would have a similar reaction to any Unicorn or Pegasus who happens to be just notably taller than myself. lol Earth Ponies are the biggest ponies! Ha-ha

And in saying that; I like how you chose a Unicorn Space Mare-ine. Truly saying something about the augmentation process.

And she is an UltraMare-ine too.

Wonder how you would do the Blood Ravens or would they be called Blood Griffins?
Celestia is in better shape than the God Emperor of Warhammer 40k.

I suppose now would be a good time to tell you that I started up a new Ponyhammer thread since the old one got too big for the forum: [link]

As for the Space Mareine herself . . . I don't know, there's just something about that long neck that screams "Shoot me!" Probably should find a way to fix that.

The neck thing, mmm... We'll see if I can solve then in my future sketchings.

:iconcodymacarthurfett:
CodyMacArthurFett Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2011
You're welcome, sir. :)

The neck thing could be solved pretty easily by just making the head relatively closer to the body. It may not work because ponies have such long necks, but then again humans have pretty long necks too and that didn't stop the canon Space Marines.
