Uniforms of the Continental Navy

The first row of uniforms reflect the regulations authorized by Congress upon the Navy's founding. From left to right, the uniforms are:
- Midshipman
- Sailing Master
- Lieutenant
- Captain
- John Paul Jones' Variant of Captain

In 1777, John Paul Jones collected the opinions of several other officers and proposed a new set of uniform regulations to Congress. In addition to being a dandy, Jones was an advocate for asymmetrical warfare. As such, his primary argument to Congress was that adopting uniforms faced with white and trimmed with gold would liken them to the Royal Navy, displaying their ability to match them blow for blow. Congress was vehemently opposed to this proposition, as they wanted nothing to do with uniforms that suggested wealth and power. Nevertheless, when John Adams was at a dinner party in France in 1779, he spied Jones wearing a blue and white uniform, which was even more gilded that the Captain's uniform he had proposed to Congress. It is believed that Jones was wearing this uniform at the Battle of Flamborough Head on September 23rd, 1779. The uniforms in the second row are, from left to right:
- Midshipman
- Sailing Master
- Lieutenant
- Captain
- John Paul Jones' Variant of Captain

The bottom row is dedicated to the Continental Marines. Initially, their uniforms were green with white facings, as seen in the first two uniforms. However, in 1779, the facings were altered to red. When ashore, the Marines wore spatterdashes to maintain the cleanliness of their uniforms. The uniform on the far right is that of the French-Irish Marines who served on Bonhomme Richard.

Hi everyone, it passed time since a last submision.

This is an own design representing the deatheaters followers of Voldemort in Harry Potter series :lol: basing in the argument very possibly Ms Rowling inspired in nazis to state D.E. ideals of blood purity, even the young Tommy looks A LOT LIKE Hitler :XD:
That's shows how her ideas are the awesome good creating stories and groups of characters.

This work shows a fusion of swastika nazi version with Slytheryn's "S" holding the form of the snake, possibly Nagini and of course this one in the green field.

Hope you like it.

In 2010 I made a wall chart for a forum project on alternatehistroy.com, the Alternate History World Cup. You can see that one here: martin23230.deviantart.com/art…

Now, 4 years later (and two years since I've actually posted anything on here) the project is back for the 2014 World Cup, and I'm the one running it. The thread is here: www.alternatehistory.com/discu…

And of course with the new tournament comes a new poster, so here it is.

this thing always seemed kind of ridiculous to me...ever notice that since september 11th it's never moved from yellow?

so i read the dhs memo on right wing extremist the other day. i thought it was a little over blown. i think it's a little suspicious that they would want to label brave men and women who swear an oath to uphold and defend the u.s. constitution as possible security threats.

why would they want to do this? could it be that they know that some of their directives are close to being un-constitutional? could it be they also know that these men and women would, if given an un-constitutional order such as seizing firearms from the american people, would not obey and possibly resist therefore becoming a national security threat in the eyes of the dhs?

anyway, i was thinking about this when i made my call to the dhs office. i told them that my neighbor had a ron paul sticker as well as an iraq veteran sticker on his car. i told the guy that i had read the dhs report on right wing extremist and was needing to know what to do. you will not believe what he suggested i do....he told me that if i was concerned i needed to call my local fbi office and make a report! i could not believe it! i swear, sometimes i do not know where i am living!

here's a link [link] to the real dhs advisory system.

A design I did for the 2012 Ron Paul movement. I wanted to do something that would grab people's attention when they see it. Not commissioned from Ron Paul or his campaign but from a group of people who want to make people informed of the truth and the availability of other options other than what Fox News tells you about. We got lost in the day to day routines of working, going to school, feeding our families, etc and lose the interest to research and understand what is going on in the country we live in. I appreciate any feedback about the art and understand that there are those who disagree with Dr. Ron Paul's beliefs and that is one of the very freedoms he looks to preserve. So please feel free to criticize my work and give any advice(I am new to this type of art) that might make it better but please keep the political debates to other forums. Thanks for taking the time to look!

So I created this party logo for a generic Menshevik political party. I believe I created it for the Russian Mensheviks given that I used the Russia's flag colors around the rim of the logo.

So the base is the coat of arms for Udmurtia (look it up :) ), I edited its colors and added the first as well as changed and added the stars.

Hopefully I've covered my bases and you enjoy :)

A concept of the Sol Defense Force Marine. I'm still working out the kinks of the armor design. Any feedback from you guys is welcome.


SDF MARINE CORPS
The Sol Defense Force Marine Corps is a branch of the Sol Defense Force that is responsible for land-based military operations as well as the protection of Naval vessels and installations from attack. They are a rugged and diverse assortment of well equipped and well trained men and women.

The Marine Corps serves as a versatile combat element, and is adapted to a wide variety of combat operations. The Marine Corps was initially composed of infantry combat forces serving aboard naval vessels, responsible for security of the ship, its captain and officers, offensive and defensive combat during boarding actions, by acting as sharpshooters, and carrying out amphibious assaults. The Marines were officially designated as the SDF’s main combat element in 2130 after the role they played in the Terrestrial Wars on Mars, disbanding and replacing the SDF Army.

The Marines are the most rugged infantry force known. Despite the fact that the Marines are highly respected, most special forces units (SOSTs in particular) see the Marines as inferior to themselves. This has caused a deep-seated resentment of SOSTs within the ranks of the Marine Corps. Often mocking their “superior” training and armor, Marines joke that SOSTs are just regular Marines who put on a fancy helmet and call themselves special forces.

A concept of the Sol Defense Force Army. Camouflage pattern subject to change.


SDF ARMY
The SDF Army are responsible for colonial defense and security on SDF-controlled colonies. Up until recent events, the Army has been decommissioned since 2131 after the Terrestrial Wars on Mars. When the Coalition invaded, and after countless defeats, the Sol Defense Force reinstated an army element in the armed forces. Although the Army may not be as well equipped as other elements in the armed forces, due to the fact that funding for the Army has been cancelled since the decommissioning of the Army in 2132, the army have been able to complete their objectives on their own, but the casualty rates were extremely high. As the war against the coalition continued, the army have been forced to rely on additional support units in combat (ground support, armor support, air support, etc) or face certain destruction. The army have also been forced to adopt new ways of enhancing their performance in combat and taking on new roles by serving as paratroopers, mobile shock infantry, and carrying out amphibious assaults to support Marines and SOST units.

The enlisted ranks in the Army often see themselves as expendable assets to be used as cannon fodder by the SDF. Because of this state of mind, there has been multiple cases of hostility towards other units in the armed forces (commonly towards Marines and SOSTs).
