Miscellaneous Gallery - Miscellaneous Ponies
Swarm Princess Pewter Pony added.
Back to Miscellaneous Kitbashes.
This isn't an exhaustive collection of my My Little Pony kitbashes, there's
also some in the Transformers PVCs and ASH Kitbashes galleries. There's also a lot of
pony-themed stuff in my Warmachine Miniatures
- McDerpy: A Happy Meal Rainbow Dash from the Friendship
is Magic series, resculpted and repainted into the background character
fan-named Derpy (or Derpy Hooves) and possibly officially called Ditzy Doo.
I later did a second one, using a McCelestia to create a "princess mode"
Derpy, Derpestia. And then I was commissioned to make one for Purple Tinker,
so I tried out a different tail idea.
- Rodeo, the Empowered Pony. It started with a drawing, and then I realized I could
probably turn a MLP:FiM Applejack figure into Rodeo. So I did. I decided
not to try to add to the flanks with putty, this is just a paint job and a
- Mini-Derpy, a hair-modification and repaint of a PVC
Fluttershy from the My Little Pony puzzle packs sold at K-Mart in 2011. I
later built a flight base from Apoxie Clay, some BBs and a section of 4mm
clear tube. I also got some matte sealant when I bought the tubing, so
dulled down the finish for the final picture (but left the eyes glossy).
October 2011. (Turns out the sealant was glaze, rather than matte.)
- Pony flight base 2: This one I made with
regular modeling clay of the air-drying variety, with steel BBs mixed in for
stability. The Rainbow Dash on it is unmodified. October 2011.
- Celestia Repaint. I got the original FiM 5-pack with pink Celestia, so
of course I had to repaint it white. But I also added sparkles. 1, 2, 3. October 2011.
- My Little Stig: Not a pony per se, but
inspired by a conversation in which it was pointed out that the MLP version
of Top Gear would be Chuck & Friends. So I modified a Chuck & Friends car
into The Stig from Top Gear. December 2011.
- Twilight Sparkle is Best Dalek: A Character Builders brand Dalek the
Supreme repainted in colors inspired by Twilight Sparkle. January 2012.
- The Armaments of Harmony: I cut apart several Mechwarrior clicky-base
game figures to make weapons that my blindbag ponies could carry around.
None of these is permanently affixed to the pony, although some rest pretty
unstably on the pony's back. February 2012.
- Derping Do: After the "Read it and Weep" episode, I knew people would be
making tiny hats and turning Rainbow Dash figures into Daring Do. So I
twisted that sideways and made a Rainbow Dash figure into Derpy Hooves as
Daring Do: Derping Do! February 2012.
- MegaBloks Swarm Dragon Spike: I got one too many copies of Pulse Gaia in
the blindbag mini-dragons line, so after a failed attempt to dye it I decided
to paint it as an adult Spike. I later went back and made a replacement
spike for the back so that a wingless version could be done. April 2012.
- The Champonis: On a whim, I decided to turn a spare Rarity into Black
Widow. When asked if I'd do the other Avengers, I decided to do the other
Champions of Los Angeles instead, because why do what everyone else is doing?
The Champions were a short-lived team in the 1970s that started with Black
Widow, Ghost Rider, Angel (Warren Worthington), Iceman and Hercules, and
later picked up Darkstar. The premise is that the Mane Six are cosplaying,
with varying degrees of committment to the look (i.e. Applejack only wears
the outfit, while Rainbow Dash is willing to cut and dye her hair). June
2012 for the Mane Six.
- Big Macintruck: I bought a couple of the Cars2 two-packs when they hit $4
in order to get the exclusive pitties, which left me with two excess Maters.
So I made one into Big Macintosh as a truck. July 2012.
- Blindbag Big Macintosh touchup: The
blindbag toy is okay, but was missing the light yellow hooves, plus the mane
wasn't orange enough. I decided not to try making a yoke for him, so I guess
this is naked Big Mac. Gasp! August 2012.
- Donut Joe Truck: I had another Mater, so decided to make him into a Donut
Joe truck. Donut Joe is a minor character, appearing briefly in "Best Night
Ever" and more prominently in "MMMMystery on the Ponyville Express". August
- GoldPinkie: Just a spare moldmate of Pinkie
painted gold with some new gold leaf paint I got. September 2012.
- Comet, the Cottey Pony: In 2013 I got a
teaching position at Cottey College and
naturally worked up a pony mascot. November 2013.
- Big iMac: Done as a present for someone who just
got an iMac. December 2015.
- Human Maud Pie: A Maude Lebowski miniature from
Impact Miniatures (they do more than chibi ponies) painted as a human Maud
Pie. December 2015.
- Brayniac 5 figure: From a Cranky Doodle
figure. Added the force field harness with putty. October 2016.
In late 2013, I contributed to the Kickstarter for Pewter
Ponies, a series of "not quite violating trademarks" gaming minis based on
MLP. I kicked in for the basic 21 ponies (12 generics, 3 sorta-alicorns,
Mane 6 riffs) plus the freebie Muffin Mare.
- "Muffin Mare" - Modified a bit,
since it was a quick sculpt. Used for my Derpy Day 2014 card. Early 2014.
- Slipstick - My OC Slipstick, the
slide rule pony. Early 2014.
- Sungazer - My other OC Sungazer,
the Solar Max pony. Rebased to a more dynamic flying pose. Spring 2014.
- Brighthorn - The ponification
of my ASH hero Brightsword. Spring 2014.
- Rodeo - My ponification of
Empowered. Spring 2014.
- Mane 6 - Some of my pinks and
purples do weird things under bright fluorescent lights, annoyingly. Spring
- Fluffle Puff - Star of her own
tumblr comic. When the second Pewter Ponies Kickstarter was launched and had
not-Chryssi, I figured I needed to make my own Fluffle Puff, so I did. Comparison shots. Spring 2014.
- Cornpone - A corn pone. Nuff
said. May 2014.
- Amarilla - To celebrate getting a
new job at Amarillo College, I made a pony of it. May 2014.
- Sgt. Horsey - A Pewter Pony Earth Pony
spliced together with Clockwork Angel wings from Warmachine, to make
Sgt. Horsey from this Heavenly
Nostrils strip. I may make a Princess Pedantia at some point too.
- Swarm Princess - The Evil Ponies
set arrived about the time I was getting ready to move, so they got set aside
and not painted, ah well. But when the creator of the figures asked for
painted examples to use on his webpage, I figured I could quickly paint up
this one, and also try out some new basing ideas I'd been meaning to get
around to. March 2017.
In 2015 I bought from a different company's pony-based
miniatures Kickstarter. Most of the stuff I bought was turned into Cygnar
minis from Warmachine, some canonical, some more of an "Iron Kingdoms RPG"
sort of thing. (Also got some Doctor Who ponies, but those won't go in this
section.) Unless otherwise noted, all were done in Spring 2015.
- The Thunderer - A "Trojan Pony" that suffered from catastrophic mold
failure, but I took that as a rehabilitation challenge and turned it into a
Colossal with the help of some extra bits.
- Light Warjacks - All converted from the common base of a Clockwork Pony,
so I made them all common-chassis Light Warjacks.
- Almost ready to
paint: I added some jump jets to the Minutemare at the last minute. This
picture makes it clear what pieces are found objects and which ones were
scratch-built. Shields and weapons were pegged in place, and not glued until
the painting was finished.
Cannons made from Lego lightsaber hilts, jumpjets scratch built.
- Sentinel: Gun
came with the Cyborg Pony set, shield scratch built. Used more of the rivets
I got for my Stormwall.
- Lancer: Added
details in the mane to represent the arc node after the WIP shot. Spear is
the tip of an arrow from some Chap Mei knockoff GIJoe, shield is
- Charger: The
hammer is a leftover from a Heavy Warjack kit (I used up my spare Charger
hammers on other projects), gun is the other Cyborg Pony one.
- Brass Swan,
Warcaster: Based on the Cyborg Pony figure. The rifle is a modified
Kroot rifle (WH40K) attached with a clear rod. Horn is scratch-built. If I
had to put this on the table, it'd probably proxy for Kara Sloan.
- Radiant Hoof,
Courser Knight: There are no Precursor Knight solos yet, so I guess it's
a generic Officer figure. One of my rare projects where I paint the cutie
mark on both sides...because I realized after I was done that the
hammer would cover up the first one I did.
- Gorman di Pone,
Rogue Alchemist: Both of my Gorman di Wulfes are painted up as Darkwing
Duck characters, so I make a pony with the proper colors. Getting details on
the gas mask was hard, since the art is inconsistent.
- Goat Tinker: Made
from the body of a Littlest Pet Shop goat and a scratch-built head, a Gobber
tinker as a goat. Early WIP, ready to paint.
- I have one more Cyborg Pony, but no inspiration yet for using it. Just
not a lot of head-cybered characters.
PONY DOCTOR WHO
The Impact Miniatures set I got also included some Doctor
Who ponies (called "Time Traveler 4" and "Time Traveler 11"), and I got a
miniatures scale TARDIS from local caster Models & Miniatures. It's not
actually pony-themed, but I'm putting it here anyway.
- Time Traveler
11: I had to carve out some bits on the sonic screwdriver and fill in
some mold bubbling on the underside, otherwise no real modding.
- Time Traveler 4:
My decision to make the scarf look more knit by zig-zagging the boundaries on
the scarf ended up taking more time to paint than the entire rest of the
figure. Shown with the TARDIS.
- Robo-Canine: AKA
K-9. I had to build new ears, the included ones were too gunky and I lost
one while trying to clear off all the flash. Painting the collar plaid
wasn't as bad as painting Four's scarf, at least.
Eleven shown for scale/comparison.
