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:


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...
