Sailor Moon, meet a Luna Wolf by terraluna5 Sailor Moon, meet a Luna Wolf by terraluna5
Please zoom for better look.



May the God-Emperor forgive me for this blasphemous display, and may my fellow 40k viewers not declare me a heretic :fingerscrossed:

LOL.

Anyhoo, thought I'd try mixing two canon characters from two different genres. As usual, Sailor Moon is here in her Super Sailor form, looking a little beat-up but still strong. Behind her is a seven/eight-foot tall superhuman giant: Garviel Loken, captain of the Tenth Company of the Luna Wolves Legion from the 40k universe.

A little intro is in order, for those who don't know what 40k is. Warhammer 40k is a tabletop game and universe in where humanity is now a vast galactic empire (the Imperium of Man) and is ignorant, highly religious, xenophobic, and constantly at war with numerous alien species. Loken here is one of hundreds of thousands of superhuman warriors called Adeptus Astartes, or Space Marines. Super-strong, immortal, seven to eight feet tall, and highly intelligent.

Back to the drawing, the basis here was symbolism and similarity with icons. Both characters share the same symbol, the crescent moon.
Sailor Moon's main symbol is the crescent moon itself, while Loken's Legion symbol is a grey circle with a black wolf's head imposed over a white crescent moon. Here are the different yet similar symbols
Sailor Moon: [link]
Luna Wolves Legion:[link]

I also wanted to try and mix a little symbolism on both characters. Sailor Moon displays four Imperial symbols: the Luna Wolves badge [link] , the Eye of Horus (from 40k), [link] seen on her chest, the Eye of Terra, a red eye with black slit, seen beneath her chest bow and left arm, and the Imperial Aquila on her waist[link]. Loken displays a few of Sailor Moon's icons as honour badges.

So, that's it. An attempt at mixing two different styles, and at trying to make the Space Marine look life-size (most of us probably would only reach up to his waistline).

For a moment, it looked like she was holding the chainsword :D Also, the proportions are slightly off: the guy's almost five heads taller than the girl, and that seems a bit too much (even if she's supposed to be Japanese) Still, it's a nice one and great fun :D And I like how you've combined the two sets of iconography.

Dude, it's a Space Marine! He's supposed to be a giant.
Sailor Moon- say 5'4'', 5'7''.
Luna Wolf Captain- say 7' or 7'9''.

Well, marines tend to be as large as each writer/artist wants them to be; they aren't always portrayed as huge giants. (the actual SM models are hardly bigger than a human guardsman) I suppose it's all in the eye of the beholder.

it's generally acknowledged that the actual models aren't to scale.... if the Space Marine models were according to scale, that would be more plastic to pay for.... and would you really want to drop close to 20 dollars (or local currency) more for a space marine squad?

Not quite... I mean, the price of WH40K models have less to do with the cost of materials, and more to do with the number of models you're likely to buy for your army: a box of 10 Cadians, for example, has more plastic in it (because of all the extra sprues) than a box of 10 marines; yet it's cheaper, because an IG player will buy two or three boxes where an SM player will buy one. And even if they were to make marines bigger, GW's regular price increases would more than compensate for it...

Nice work. I like the minute details of the armor. Also, have you ever heard of Lovehammer? It's a Warhammer/Sailor Moon crossover wherein Usagi was raised by the God-Emperor of Mankind. Hilarity ensues.

Sweet. Was it your inspiration for these crossover pieces, or were you already doing them when you found the forum?

I was already doing them long before I saw Lovehammer.

I love the way you show how massive space marines are. Most times we don't even realize. This is so good! I don't even know what Sailor Moon is so I forgive you, besides, I'm hardly even looking at her. Loken RULES!!! Absolutely LOVE it! :)

Many thanks! Loken is badass! This was a crossover attempt. Sailor Moon is a Japanese feminine anime and manga series.

Also, thanx for the watch!:+devwatch: Had a look at your poetry and literature, very impressive. You ought to see my positive writings folder in my gallery, it has stuff similar to yours. In return for your watch, consider yourself on my dA watch list! :#1:

You're welcome, and thank you for the watch! I really appreciate it, it's nice to finally find some people on here who understand Warhammer and Warhammer 40k:) It makes it easier for me to post those genre of stories!

Well, a lot of people go "Huh? What's this dude? What are Space Marines? How'd the U.S get in space? And how'd the Evil Emperor get from Star Wars into your story?" Ugh! So in five minutes I have to try and explain the whole universe(which is VERY hard). Having fellow servants of the Emperor read my literature makes it much easier for them to enjoy the story without a load of explaining.

Oh, okay. Yeah, I don't play the game, but I know the entire storyline, the forces, the Imperium, the whole she-bang. In fact, I'm making up my own 40k storyline. But get this, the main characters include the Disney princesses (Ariel, Belle, Cinderella, etc.) Idea is that Chaos destroys the princesses' kingdoms and their true loves; thus, their only hope is to side with the Imperium. And in my version of the Imperium, the Legions were never disbanded, and only the Word Bearers are the ones that turned traitor, along with certain bands of World Eaters, Iron Warriors, etc.

Hey, that's neat! I have read a few of the Horus Heresy series but can never force myself to read all of them. It's so sad! I hate what happens, brother turning against brother, and the most beloved son against his Father.

I know. The Thousand Sons tragedy hit me the hardest. They're my favorite. They should've stayed loyal! Oh well.

If you wanna see my converted Disney princesses (four total), here are the links:
Princess Giselle, the Red Siren [link]
Princess Ariel, Child of the Forge

Princess Belle, the New Wolf

Princess Aurora, the Blood Rose

Each is affiliated with a different Legion. Check 'em out.

Well, that's good. Then you should prep yourself for more "forms of heresy". I may soon be declared Excommunicate Traitoris.

Nah, I'm a loyal warrior of the Emperor all the way! I just "convert" more followers (i.e. Sailor Moon) into his light.

At first glance it looks like she is holding the chainsword. Good job with the sizes too. I always forget how huge marines are. :)

Many thanks. Yes, the idea was to make this life-size. Plus symbolism was big on this.
