Ye olde Lunar rebel soldier by aNIGHTLYpony Ye olde Lunar rebel soldier by aNIGHTLYpony
MY oc named Nightly in his days in the army, he fought against the changeling swarm with the lunar rebellion so i thought of uniform ^.^

The uniform is entirely made of cloth and has a dark trenchcoat over it and leg-warmers, i've based it on the armor of luna's gaurds, also i tried not to let it look too impressive with armor parts and such, the rebellion was not as wealthy as the imperial army after all. it've also tried to let it look a bit old-fashioned because this war occured when the mane 6 were'nt even born yet, back in the year 1946, nightly was a young colt of about 17 years old.

a little bit of history : The lunar rebellion was formed in the late 30's, after the disappearence of the crystal empire 948 years ago together with Luna's banishment to the moon. equestria was the strongets and wealthiest nation of all.before Granny smith (then a filly) moved with her family there was a growing division of pony kind, this time between they who walk in the daylight and the minority of ponies that only come out at night. for 9 centuries they were ruled by princess celestia as an absolute ruler, because she is the princess of the sun this was very insulting to some.the nocturnal ponies also claimed it was not celestia's birthright to raise the moon, they felt alone,neglected, and surpressed. princess luna was their only princess they wanted to serve,but after she was defeated by celestia and banished...in secret the followers of luna forged in secret a rebellion against the tyranny of the sun : the Lunar rebellion,sworn to fight the empire, and let their princess rule the night once again.

Great design! As you said, not too fancy, but elegance need not be fancy. Reminds me of the American Revolution.

I'm confused about the history, though. I can understand nocturnal ponies resenting Celestia, but Luna (as possessed by the Nightmare) seems to have been pretty tyrannical herself.

oh but during that time Luna was sealed away in the moon still. as nightmaremoon stated "the night will last forever", that statement gained her followers ^.^

Hah. That's awesome xD! We lost against you buggers in the Peach Tree War at New Sweden >;P.

And cool =P. I've wanted to do one of these drawings for a long time. But now when you've done it, it would pretty much be stealing. Hah ;D

no prob, if you credit me you can use the uniform design ^.0

oh that's not the only battle, we helped the danes out too. the Dutch mercenaries aided Denmark in the first and third scandinavian war (Sweden VS Denmark),Denmark only became ruler of scandinavia because of us XD.Yeah we're buggers XDDDDDD

nope, it's just a custom rifle that works on mana pebbles. the gryffons were the first race to stand against equestria because of their invention of gunpowder that they used to develop firearms,the scientists that sympathised with the rebels examined how those rifles work and so developed the rifles that the rebels use, that's why they are a major threat to celestias imperial garde. tho equestria was about to engage in civil war they had a much bigger problem to worry about, lunar rebels and state soldiers alike

for in the far northwest another race prepared for war under a different flag, the flag of the changeling swarm... (in my fanfic our course XD)

Reminds me of the Spring Of Nations (lots of revolutions,uprisings and so on in the year 1848,in case you don't know).I love Enlightenment times.
This is beautiful,your OC,the uniform as well.
You deserve a watch.
