My little Hesperax alias Rarity by Nachtana My little Hesperax alias Rarity by Nachtana
Never thought something small like this is possible to make. But it works. And it works well with the usual Tabletop tools.

Inspiration by :iconhattonslayden: hattonslayden.deviantart.com/a… And to be honest: i didn't know that Hesperax is a character unit of the Dark eldar. I saw the Artwork, searched and found a good basic miniature and then let's go. It took whole six weeks until she was finished. And after that, i began to start another projekt: building a whole army of Ponys. But not in the Warhammer multiverse. That would need too much minis, even for a small group. My Ponys will run in the iron Kingdoms of Warmachine.
Basic: a dark elf sorceress Miniature from Games Workshop (chest, neck and hips)
Arms: Dark eldar bits, also Games workshop
Horns: both are made of brass. crafted on a lathe. Easyer as to try by hand
Base: Warmachine 30mm Infantery base, details handmade. (and magnetized)
all other stuff: PK Pro sculpting puttyl and a bit of wire in the legs. Grass and the coppice is from a tabletop shop, you can buy that in the dozen.

Other Ponys and units of everfree
Dinky Doo -> Druid Wilder
Bon Bon -> Stone Keeper
Trixie -> Blueclad wayfarer
Candymane and her Woldstalkers -> Stoneward & Woldstalkers
Watchpony 1- >
Watchpony 2 ->
Watchpony 3 -> Light Warbeast
Orthrus -> Argus
Arctic Orthrus -> Winter Argus

Other Ponies in the same size
Priestress Rarity -> Commission
Spike -> Imperial guard, Warhammer 40'000

Hordes and Warmachine belongs to Privateer Press
:iconfyre-flye: owns the original design of My little Pony and is the reason why i'm a Brony now. And i don't regret it!
:iconhasbroplz: owns My little Pony

As someone who is waiting on the new Dark Eldar codex to add to my Eldar... I wouldn't mind using this instead of an actual Hesperax.

Pretty awesome work.

Thanks.
One of my miniatures with most original parts. (Body and arms). Only the tail, some details and the head are full made by myself.

how much would it cost to get one of these?

It depends on who should make her.
If you want to try, you need the bits i enumerated in the description and quite enough patience (or quite a lot).

If i have to do it for you it will take a long time and it will be not for free. In fact, this will cost a low three-dignit number. -Theoretical, but i yust can't ask for so much money for a tiny figurine. (even this would be realistic, others can life by making those.)

Awesome work!! I was wondering: what did you use for the Nightmare Moon shoulder armor?

:iconnachtana:
Nachtana Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks. I used for the shoulder - well nothing. Exept a brass pin. The rest is made of the same material as the Head, legs and hair are made of: Pro create sculpting putty. Modeled with the tools you find in my profile.

A Question. Is it possible to buy this?
Reply
:iconnachtana:
Nachtana Featured By Owner Mar 10, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes. And no. I don't sell her because its my first success to make something like this and it will be good. There are others before her and those are..... Well, not like her high quality.
But it's possible to make another one. Fortunately, she's based on a GW Miniature. So she's more a resculpt as a all new Miniature like the others. But you be warned, it will take a vew weeks for me to make and even she's a small one she can cost a lot. It's still a lot of work for me.

Well, take your time. But I'm Highly interrested in a Rarity.

But if i could go like a Commission, i want her in Clerik Style, or something in that way, not a Rogue.
And a Price where can i can guess would be cool.

Yes, she's Lelith Hesperax. Best of all: i din't know that the whole time i spend to sculpt her. (the fanart is named after her but i just don't get it.) I found out a view days after the painting and now i'm still think about a Rarity with the Hesperax miniature as starting position.

*hattonslayden showed me this, and words cannot describe this. Simply, how amazing this is, can be expressed by my desire to actually make a table top pony army to use.

You said it. My army is on the move. For starters, i need only fife Ponys. Hordes is a great game, it needs not so many Miniatures.
