Ministry Mare Rainbow Dash by whispir Ministry Mare Rainbow Dash by whispir
After seeing Wonderbolt Academy, I wanted to draw Rainbow Dash again. This is kind of unrelated to the episode, but I wanted to try drawing her in Enclave/Power Armor from Fallout Equestria. I based the design off brisineo's vector work (the Shadowbolts version) and also looked at pictures of power armor from the game.

Edit 1: I'm not sure whether she should be wearing Wonderbolt or Shadowbolt colors. Here is the Shadowbolt colored version (it's not that different, although I did add a teeny bit more shading I missed). It depends when power armor was made. Does anyone remember the memory orb in which RD shows the armor off to Rarity, and whether that took place before or after Celestia? Under Luna RD would change it to Shadowbolts.

Edit 2: My goodness, thank you for your favs. <3 Even if you don't like MLP/FoE and you liked this (hey, that's cool, you can still like some art from the thing but not the whole thing, it's all cool). :)

it's Equestrian Skyguard Armor. They were the Equestrian Skyguard in RD's time.

Only problem with this is that RD was the leader of the Shadowbolts in Fallout Equestria

A throwaway line in one scene indicates that Dash joined the Wonderbolts not long before they were all but wiped out during the early days of the war - she only formed the Shadowbolts after Luna came to power and founded the Ministries. ;)

I'm wondering when their power armor was made, though. Do you remember the memory orb where Dash was showing it off to Rarity (who helped design it)? That might've taken place after Celestia abdicated. And she was talking about changing to Shadowbolts because that would scare the zebras more. It doesn't matter, I'll just throw up both versions until it's clarified.

Since that particular scene was the last time the entire Mane Six, plus Spike, were all together at once (and if I recall, the carpet they were walking on sort of "photocopied" the others' souls so that Rarity could use their assistance in making the statuettes soon after), I'm pretty sure the Shadowbolt/Enclave Power Armor was designed well into Princess Luna's solo reign.

Oh! I thought brisineo's vector was for shadowbolts, but I obviously can't read! Whoops. I'll go back and change the blue to purple presently.
