As usual the base for the miniature is a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic blindbag pony, and as such it is little over 2 inches/ 5 cm (hoof to head)
The shoulders are Warhammer Space Marine shoulders. Rest of the pony is built from scratch with nothing but some good images on Google to inspire.
Painted in shades of blue over a basecoat of Shadow Grey. Helmets, power appliances and tail painted with Red Gore over a base of Blood Red and with Blood Red highlights.
Details is a mix of Boltgun Metal, Mithril Silver and Midnight Blue/Necron Abyss (as seen on my Princess Luna Grown
The dataslates and eyes are painted with Caliban Green and the old Goblin Green. The mouth grille is painted, not sculpted.
At first when I declared it done, it seemed incomplete somehow, and after some deliberation and feedback from a good friend, I game up with the idea of inlaid circuits on the helmet and hind legs, giving it the final appearance.
As opposed to the trotting/one-leg-raised model, this version is surprisingly stable, due to it leaning a bit back onto the tail, so it stands just fine without having to be based... it will have to be shipped in a hard container though, to avoid breakage.
The pony was built over the span of a month, working on it on/off in between other projects, and was finally given time for painting and prancing during the Live broadcast of Show X
and Casually Hardcore
on Febuary 17th 2013. The pony was the nights Crafting Cam project
Pony is not reserved, so if anyone falls in love with it I'm willing to ship it halfway across the globe (in either direction) to a new and loving home

Small fix; Painted the tech shoulderpad red, as a person, who is more knowledgeable within 40k than I, pointed out that the shoulderpad base colour should be red rather than blue.
