    1. Hey guys, I've been working with these bits for a while and they are great! The picture above and on meow meow dont do them a lot of justice. The female marines are sculpted by the talented Space Corsair, and below i have posted 2 links, one of which is my own WIP Sisters army using his bits, and the other is Space Corsairs green stuff thread, which contains a whole bunch of his other works. Check them out!

    2. Having followed all the links and seeing the other parts I have to agree that the above picture is unfortunately quite unflattering. Thanks for pointing this out!

    1. Absolutely not a fan of the female marines, but that female commissar is awesome, great detail on the uniform and not "cheese-cake" like a lot of the female figures out there. Thanks for posting the blog link or I wouldn't have known about it, I plan on snagging one.

  3. Can't say I'm a fan, but would like to see female occultists and female imperial guard

  4. So, I am fuzzy on how much of the model has to be Citadel to be tournament legal and all that. Would putting a standard GW marine backpack on one of these 3rd party female marines be enough?

    1. Off the top of my head I think its over 50% of the model has to be GW.

  5. The only females I would like to see in powerarmour are the Sisters of Battle.

  6. Someone's obviously not been doing their background reading properly, the geneseed is keyed to the y chromosome and therefore there is no such thing as female space marines

  7. Like others, my first thought is SoB. The "general rule" is 50%, but since GW doesn't do tournaments anymore (or even support them with product), as long as it looks good, it will fly. For example, Wargames Factory's Shock Troops for Death Korps of Krieg. As long as you are consistent in your modeling, you should be good. So the Shock troops have some "odd" looking weapons, paint them up purty and do it.

    Otherwise, for the ladies here, I have more than enough arms, pauldrons, etc. to make a 50% GW claim.

  8. The fluff over 25 years says otherwise (in a very clear manner).
    Has been written in several books and articles, the marine zygote is only possible along with male tissue.
    For example on Index Astartes Vol.1:
    These considerations mean that only a small proportion of people can become Space Marines.
    They must be male because zygotes are keyed to male hormones and tissue types.

  9. Here come the inter-galactic shot-put team!

    Completely lacking any of the appeal of Sisters of Battle, Wyches etc.

  10. Maybe these are male marines, they are just post-op. :)

  11. Not really understanding why there'd be breasts modelled on the powerarmour. If a woman was put into a powerarmour (despite the male only fluff) her breasts would not be big enough to account for that big of a change in the design.
    Besides she'd probably be incredibly muscular and lean, so not much fat to the breasts either.
    In fact the only difference would be the face of marines with their helmets off.

  12. A pity Meow-Meow posted this weekend that they're closing their shop and website due to "unfortunate circumstances"... I wonder if GWs legal department has a hand in there...
