Once again the majority of the credit for this fine model goes to Doghouse. The two of us worked together via email back and forth to get the torso sculpted. Female Power Armor is really hard to get just right, but I think we found an excellent balance. Once sculpted, he sent it to me, and then it dissapeared for a month, and just when we thought it was lost in the warp forever, a burnt and torn package appeared on his doorstep. Apparently, some kids had put some kind of explosive in the mailbox and the package had been blown up. (True Story)
Miraculously, however, it was still intact, the little greenstuff torso stuck in a corner of the remaining half of the bubble wrap envelope, which Doghouse then sent to me in a new envelope, making the journey across the Atlantic and finally getting to me, which tells me that not only does this model have two wounds, but also apparently, an invulnerable save.
The arms and Backpack are just blue-tacked on at this point, but I'm extremely pleased with the results. Enjoy.
For anyone who didn't get to see it before, here's the Female Terminator Prototype as well. Having both Female Power Armor and Female Terminator Armor in the same army list is not only wickedly cool, but creates a continuity of equipment and style. You may notice that I intentionally mimicked some of the Terminator's attributes, like the double-tabbard and thigh-plates.
Shiny, keeps the good SM look and doesn't vear into the stupid "LoL, tits, LoL." Zone. I hope to see how it looks once painted.

I just hope this post doesn't turn into a huge debate about the legitemancy of female space marines. People can get quite passionate on the subject. The mode is great keep up the good work.
Equipped with the latest XV25 Stealth Armour these troops are the 'love wolves' of the Tau army, operating independently of other formations.

It's a great model, and while I'm not big on female space Marines usually, this looks really good!
Nice work, and good story haha

With that said, great sculpting! I'm anxious to see more, and painted versions. :yes: Keep it up.
looks alright on the whole, but I feel theres still something missing to mak it actually "feminine" and not just different looking marine armour. I think it has to do with the shape of the armour. Anyway, you could always get away with saying their personalised sisters anyway. they wear power armour too.Or an inquisitor, plenty of female inquisitors wearing power armour (not so sure about termies though but hey.) still a damn fine job on the whole though.

Well, I'm no fan of female space marines but regardless that looks great Doctor Thunder. I actually think this power armoured version looks a bit better than your terminator leader...

that's some pretty decent sculpting you've done there mate. I'm curious to see them finished and painted
Got some update pics for everybody. I took the chapter badge to a much higher level, with custom sculpted shoulder pads. The spiderweb designs are copied off the spiderwebs in the tree behind my house. I test-fitted the wood elf heads onto the power armor marine, and realized, to my horror, that the head is waay too small. So, unfortunately, I'll have to use regular marine helmets, but maybe I can jazz them up a bit with some pony-tail style top-knots or something like that.
Like before, everything is just blue-tacked together at this point.
Well, despite my sig, I will try to offer some constructive criticism.
First, let me say that you have some great GS skills. Very impressed with what you've done.
I guess my main concern is that power armor is not, by definition, form-fitting. It has all sorts of padding and the like, incorporating sensors, cables, etc. The reason I bring this up is that as such, even females in power-armor would not have need for huge chest pieces for their bosoms (man, trying to skate around this topic without being too graphic for the younger members is hard). What I'm trying to say is that I don't think you need to give all the power-armor chestpieces huge bosoms to indicate that the occupants are female; terminator armor even less so. A milder profile may accomplish the same effect without looking ridiculous. Anyone who has seen female bodybuilders ( the closest approximation I can think of as to what a female space marine would look like) can attest that they are not known for their decolletage.
Again, overall I like what you've done with the GS. Yet the humongous breasts on the armor look ridiculous, and actually a bit juvenile. Tone them done a notch and I think your good work will look great.
Just my 2 cents.

NO FEMALE SPACE MARINES!!!!!
