A Humble Gift for Nightmare Night by Sanity-X A Humble Gift for Nightmare Night by Sanity-X
Nightmare Night has come around once again, and I thought I'd give a little tribute to our dear princess of the night. It's also a preview for everyone still waiting on 'The Luna Heresy' which I am working on atm.

Have a wonderful Nightmare Night, everypony. ^_^

I get the feeling that an equestrian Imperium could exist in the same galaxy as mankind's imperium because of the astronomecon not reaching all the way acorss the galaxy, and the ponies might not be so crude as to glaze over every planet that can be habitable and terraformed unlike the imperium... thus, smaller space, easier to manage, quality over quantity is the way to survive... and it would explain how hogs are able to do what they do by animal over fungal reproduction...

but this is more so a logistical posibiliotie over literal possibility... unless (enter fan fic story element here)

We've got our own set of Discordant Gods, about 6 of them in total I reckon. They will serve as the antithesis of the Elements of Harmony.

i really love your designs, they are magnificent mergings of two opposite worlds, and the luna heresy actually crossed my mind when i first watched mlp, with the "Luna wolfs" on horus side, and the princess that turned evil being called luna, i was struck with nerdgasms, so i expect great things for your version of the conflict, altough i am quite curious, where do the mane 6 fit in the 40k universe?, many have tougth of twligth being an inquisitor, others that they are primarchs, etc...

PD: sorry for my bad english, if i wrote like a drunk man, please tell, i need to improve my grammar for a fanfic that i am planning.

Sorry for the late reply. Thanks for the praise, btw! ^_^

As to your questions, this is my own personal opinion on the matter.

"The Mane 6 are the basis of the Elements of Harmony. But since they will have passed on when Celestia began looking toward the stars, Celestia created the Space Mareines and their Primares as the embodiment of Harmony. They were created using templates of the Mane 6 as their basis, to try and replicate the Elements.

When Luna turned upon her sister in the Luna Heresy, bringing a full half of her Paragons of Harmony to the dark side, Celestia confined herself within the Imperial Palace, placing the full blame of the fallacy of trying to replicate the Elements through the Primares squarely upon herself. She soon comes to the realisation that the Elements of Harmony cannot be merely reproduced, it must be in it's purest form to truly be what it is.

With that, the Empress goes about bringing the Mane 6 back to life. When she finally succeeds and the Mane 6 are resurrected, they become more than Primares. They become the most potent weapons against the hopelessness of a universe at war, and will bring about Harmony forevermore."

So, as you can see, the Mane 6 are more than Primares. They are saints, goddesses even, the true Elements of Harmony.

ps: There is some inconsistencies with my narrative and the current direction the show is going. Since Twilight is a princess now, she should never have passed away in the first place, and there is speculation that the Mane 6 will soon follow suit. I'm not setting my universe in stone just about yet, and just roll with the punches as Hasbro graces us with more ponies. ^_^

I really like your mystification of the Mane six, it is very WH40k-ish, as for the princess part, maybe that is how they got inmortal, no longer mere mortal ponies, but goddess of great power and beacons of hope.
Also how would ponies control bolters?????...
naa just kidding, even i cant think of a way that would work without magic or cyborg implants.

Oh, that is a slice of fried awesome right there, good sir.

I'd have more glowing praise about it, but I'm kinda tired at the moment, and words are hard. I will say that seeing this has inspired me to get back to work on my own Ponyhammer works. I'm kinda stuck on "who's gonna be who" at the moment myself, so that's being tricky (too many Primares/Stallionarchs and not enough key ponies!).

I look forward to seeing more from you with great anticipation.

I admit i've never been a big fan of the horus heresy which is going to explain my suggestion that maybe you should back off the luna heresy and maybe focus on uh... not exactly light hearted aspect...
If MLP = Magical Friendship and WH40K = Grim Darkness
then PH40K = Grim Friendship / Magical Darkness ?

I would assume you aren't exactly against the direction I'm taking for the Luna Heresy (I've been getting some resistance against the Grimdarkness I'm applying on my Ponyhammer art as of late), but rather you're not a big fan of the Horus Heresy in general and rather I continue pursuing the other elements of the Ponyhammer universe?

Assuming my assumption is correct, then I'd like to say that I've put in alot time and effort into this piece and so help me Empress, I would like to have it completed. I will get back to the other explorations of the universe after that.

If however, you think that the Grimdark I'm putting into this is a little too much, especially since ponies are such a nice universe of niceness, then I may have to agree to some degree. Somehow, it's really hard to depict the grim reality of the 41st Millennium without making it a little more gritty than I'd like (especially for the side of Discord, who gave up their noble ideals to sate their selfish desires). I'm trying really hard to strike a balance here, between the hopeless reality of Warhammer 40'000 and the hopeful enthusiasm of My Little Pony.

Once again, really really love how Perturabo turned out, in just about every aspect.

Looking forward to the finished piece for realsies. I'll be joining MrChaos in prodding you for progress updates.

But with good reason! For a piece as massive in scope as your Luna Heresy piece, I really think that getting feedback along the way would be both helpful and motivational.

I really appreciate the feedback. Hopefully at the end of all things, the advice and comments from you guys will make this a piece worthy of what it's based on. For the glory of our Immortal Empress! XD

Yeah, i like it. The Primarch looks like he (she, i mean) should looks - massive, brutal and sad. Despite the fact im not a fan of Perturabo, but here is some "little tribute" about his Legion (Thats all because your "little tribute"). Made in Russia, by the way=)

Iron warriors
Thunder and Lightning, Fire and Steel
Unlimited Power and Iron Will
We not praying to Chaos, we serve to our Lord
Loyalist scum, you die by my sword

We are Iron Warriors
We live for Win
Iron Without - Iron Within
Iron Without - Iron Within

Hammer and Anvil, Power and Might
we are made of metal, we born to fight
with axe of war in iron hand
Warlord n Warsmith ruler of this land

We are Iron Warriors
We live for Win
Iron Without - Iron Within
Iron Without - Iron Within

I'm curious though, who is your favourite Primarch? That is, if you have one. :D

Well, im an Imperial Guard player (with some tricky eldars in alliance=), but i sitll have a point on SPEHS MEHRENS! And the Primarch too - Corvus Corax for his awesome style, his awesome story and his awesome "NEVERMORE"=)

Yeah, they would have been really appropriate for the occasion.

This pic is an excerpt from something I'm doing atm, which relates to the final siege of Equestria in the Luna Heresy. I think both Alpha Omega (Alpharius Omegon) and Konradine Cruze (Konrad Curze) were not in Equestria at the time of the siege, so I might not touch on them. Yet. ^_^

That would be an interesting question, but Luna isn't Perturabo here. All of the Dramatis Personae remains the same as [link] , with some new players being added as I try to flesh out the darkest hour of Pony History.
