As i stated in the MLP Kill team thread I had planned several ideas for what I wanted to do and after reading feedback from that thread and bouncing it off several people (some of whom thought I was insane, if only they knew @[email protected]) I decided that I would go ahead with this side project. Also i needed a break from things and this seemed like a good way to do it.

As such the first thing i want to say is that I have never used greenstuff to build anything, the most i have used it for is filling in holes or things. So some of the conversions are gonna look a bit weird and any help with that is appreciated. Ill try and lay out the different customizations im planning for each model and some pictures will hopefully make it easier to get where im going with it.

For now the first post shall be of the greenstuff and the design notes for the first of the ponies im attempting. Due too having to order some parts since they weren't available to me I decided that Pinkie Pie would get the first work.


Pinkie pie shall be the Techmarine of the group and with that I will also be building a special Drop pod to go with her later. But for now I took a standard techmarine and removed his power axe and replaced it with a greenstuff candy cane (or power cane) if you wanna call it that.


I do have to clean it up a bit more but im scared of breaking it and having to recover it over ><. any help with that would be appreciated.

Following that is the modification of one of the power claws that shall become the Gummy claw in honor of the favored alligator. The eyes will hopefully come out well and


lastly for the green stuff modifications i wanted to give her a cupcake some where on this model and decided that her backpack could be the place for it. So....



and yes it sorta looks like a mushroom T__T lol i just couldn't figure out how to difference the two at this stage. aside the little cherry on top and a few lines i did to try and make the swirl affect.

Any and all C&C before i take this to the spray and begin the paint job on it would be a big help.

I will also be making some fluff possibly if i can get this all done.
I have a few more ideas to add to pinky like some streamers on the base to give it a party look and maybe a hair style XD if i can figure out how to do her bouncy hair look.

Hope you enjoy and hope to get more done to show it off.

What is it with all the My Little Ponies creeping in on this Forum? :shok:

Power cane? Isn't that a weapon exclusively used by the pimp marines? :biggrin: Once you make it red and white it won't be so obvious...

@ Hellados: I haven't decided if i will do a full company with everything or not. I'm not to big on playing space marines XD so if i do bikes they may get ponies to pull them >_> we shall see.

@BrotherE: ah ok, i was mixing it as much as i could and it started to stick to my fingers alot so i thought it was enough XD. Its still not cured yet but im hoping it will by tonight so i can prime it with white and start working on the paint job.

One thing at a time mate. Some dork commissioned me for a primarch or something, then I have a comic strip and more ponies sketches to work on, and then I can make my warhammer ponies. :wacko:


AoD, I like what you`ve started with, though personally I would have gone with a Deathwatch kill team as follows:

Twilight Sparkle: Librarian (obvious psychic connection)

Applejack: Marine with Powerfist (AJ is strongest pony)

Rainbow Dash: Assault Marine (speed, flight, etc)

Fluttershy: Apothecary (good with healing)

Rarity: Techmarine: (designer and fabricator)

Pinkie Pie: Marine with flamer (cupcakes)


But what you have so far looks promising. I never would have thought to incorporate Gummy. :laugh:

Well for mine it is gonna be a sorta kill team/remnants of a chapter.

Twilight Sparkle - Librarian w/terminator armor (i like the head part so i can add a horn XD)

Apple Jack - Sternguard veteran or Devastator

Rarity - Assault marine w/ dual power claws (jeweled up)

Rainbow Dash - A chapter champion w/wings (rainbow sword!)

Fluttershy - Apothacary (duh XD also gonna find a way to put Angel-bunny in)

Pinkie pie - Techmarine ( because she built the flying contraption XD, also because I have planned a Drop pod that opens up and plays 'singing telegram' when its opened like those singing birthday cards)

Spike - Banner carrier ( well cause he is carrying things again)

Luna - Chaplain (due to being loud and scaring everyone lol )

Celestia - Captain (well i couldn't figure out a chapter master I could design Lol)

so my list is sorta similar to yours, it was also affected because i didn't want to have to buy all kinds of boxes just for one piece XD.

Mines not that disposable XD but it lets me do stuff with it and i know the feeling on the last part lol. I sprayed it tonight and hopefully the greenstuff will cure since the candycane is still kinda moving around but im gonna start preparing some mixes of colors to see if i can get the pinks i need.

I have a question for you tho since your on, do you have any suggestions on how to use greenstuff to make some hair like mane for the helmets. kinda like the roman style brushes on some helms but longer?

@ jaysen: if you did that, I would totally come find you and challenge your chaos XD

I can do it, but i`m not sure how to instruct on it tbh. I just kind of... can do it... :dunno:

To start with, just make a solid shape, then you add the detail on a second layer. You can use a toothbrush to give a flowing hair appearance if you don`t rust yourself with the sculpting tool. Also, use water constantly. Wet your fingers, the sculpting tool and the putty itself, it will stop it sticking.

Also when you mix it, it should be completely one shade green, not spatters of blue and yellow. :p
