Greens in the works - More Female Space Marines

Alternate idea for converting space marine figures into female ones. Tried making just a torso replacement part to minimize amount of work but didn't turn out as intended. Looks like I need to make changes to the legs for it to work; which kind of defeats the whole purpose.


Sculpting the eagle on the chest was the toughest part of this exercise; still need to sculpt the skull in the center. The heads and shoulder pads are from parts done previously.

The following are the beginnings of my assault unit type torsos. Not sure how I'm going to do the jump pack harness across the chest.


  1. I think it's not that bad. Not perfect like your full models, but requires less work, less parts and is still obviously female. I would definitely buy alternate torsos for instance.

    Love the pose on the legs of your assault gals. So dynamic! You've probably done the straps by now but I figure they'd go around the breasts.

    Congrats on sculpting the wings. That seems so tricky. Are you planning on casting them and making more?
    Personally I think the "no female space marines" is stupid and I'd love to get a mixed army. I don't want to have to choose between all males and all females. I don't see why they couldn't fight together.

    You're a true inspiration, I'll try my best to make my own minis... If there is any advice you can give me, I'd love to hear it.

  2. Thank you for the kind words.

    I ended up sculpting legs to fit this torso:

    The assault gals are done but I've decided not to sculpt the straps since they are not required and I'm feeling lazy;)

    I still have a lot to learn myself, so I probably don't really have much advice to give. But if you have any specific questions or advice on something your working on, I'll see what I can do for ya.
