HM3: More Logos means More Better

Starting tomorrow I'll begin work on a few additional Insignia sets. Combing through the great suggestions in the last thread, here are the main groups I'll probably do.

  • Nature
    • coyote
    • animal heads
    • more eagles
    • snarling dog
    • cat’s paw with claws ready for attack.
    • dorsal fin
    • Roses and other flowers
    • snowflake and other weather-related symbols
    • bear paw
    • Nautilus shell
    • musical notes
    • Animal (paws, animal heads, animal silhouettes, insects, arachnids etc)
    • Vegetal (leaves, trees, flowers, fruits)
    • Laurel Wreath
    • Olive branch (v. re-usable)
    • Open five finger hand (no HandRight/HandLeft equivalent, yet at least) β€” http–interconnected-org/home/more/2004/12/hand_columns.jpg
    • Gems
  • Additions to the Insignia-Tech set, including variations on gears and more chest-mounted force projectors.
  • Zodiac signs.
  • Runes.

If you have any additional suggestions for Insignia along those broad categories, let 'em rip.

    Don,t forget the Flag one (but then again, most of them are not that complicated to make).

    Also, would it be possible to add a bigger ? Swastika in the background slot So I can position my nazi villains character in front of a big Nazi flag.

  2. Mr.Vampire says:

    The 12 Chinese zodiac signs would be good too.
    alao on the theme of runes some chinese caligraphy would be tops also.

  3. Kaiju says:

    My suggestion would be a generic three toe’d dinosaur footprint like what you would see in museums in all that.
    Also i have a suggestion for animal heads.
    Create a generic bald lizard head, and add in features like add or remove fins or spines.
    As for flags, Nazi and Communist FTW πŸ™‚

  4. Jeff Hebert says:

    GreenBat, those are TERRIBLE, why do you want them so badly? I don’t even remember seeing them in the run-through of the 2.x files.

  5. Andemas says:

    greenbat’s suggestions are in insignia-tattoos. I am indifferent to their addition.

  6. Jeff Hebert says:

    Oh, I totally forgot about Insignia-tattoos. I wasn’t planning on going into the non-Standard sub-sets until later on, after all the Standard ones are done.

  7. bgh2 says:

    when you do the zodiac signs, could you add the symbols of the sun and planets?

  8. Niall Mor says:

    Howsabout a hammer and sickle logo or background for that unreconstructed commie on your villain list?

    Rune ideas:
    * Alchemical β€”
    * Elvish β€”
    * Norse/Celtic/Dwarf (already kinda have one) β€”
    * Sanskrit (southern style chandas) β€”
    * Thai β€”

    Th DaFonts seem to be free.

  10. Tim says:

    So tattoos will come at a later time? That’s cool with me.

    Oh and just in case you missed my last insignia request a few days ago, here I’ll repost πŸ˜€

    Cheers, Jeff πŸ˜€

  11. Tal says:

    Wax-Works (a company which makes custom wax dies) has a “make your own crest” page with a lot of options that you can combine. Would be nice to see some of that stuff.


  12. paul says:

    How about a double bladed axe insignia?

  13. Jeff Hebert says:

    That wax-works link rocks, thanks Tal! That’ll be a great foundation for the Heraldry set.

    @Paul: Can’t you just use the existing double-bladed axe in ItemRightBlades and shrink it down? Or two of the single-headed axes there?

    @Tim: Thanks, I did see that. You said it’s a logo from a game, though, right? I can’t use copyrighted symbols. I bet you could make it yourself from various bits though.

    @violodion: I was looking through the DaFont archives last night, there’s some really neat stuff there. I suspect what might be easier is if I just make those into a FontsRunes
    set, that way people can type in their own stuff.

  14. John says:

    Mickey Mouse ears, please.

  15. Jeff Hebert says:

    ::shakes fist at John::

  16. paul says:


    Yes i could but If I want to overlay it onto a white circle back ground and then meask the circle onto a piece of chest armor the axe will not mask with it and thus will not take to the contours of the chest amor.spandex…no big deal just an aesthetics preference.

  17. Jeff Hebert says:

    Mask the axe onto a circle, then make the circle invisible. Then add another circle to mask onto the chest.

    Jedi HeroMachine tricks FTW!

  18. John says:

    Oh, c’mon…you can’t tell me this wouldn’t be DA BOMB!

    (…and Jeff says “Da Bomb of a lawsuit, yes…!”)

    Legion eagle
    Trojan horse
    Poseidon’s trident
    Athena’s owl
    Grape (Dionysos symbol)
    Thor’s hammer

  22. Jeff Hebert says:

    Fabien, there’s already a horseshoe. The peace dove was so bad I didn’t want to transfer it.

  23. Worf says:

    YES!! Rune fonts PLEASE!!!!

    @violodion: Loved those fonts!

    @Jeff/John: That drawing of the water molecule (hint, hint) was pretty cool πŸ˜‰

  24. Darkplanet01 says:

    It might be (as in probably is) just me, but is there no angel sort of insignia? I’ve seen plenty of eagle, hawk and other sorts of feathery insignia which would be alright, but a fully angel-like insignia would be cool.

  25. Karasu48 says:

    Hey Jeff, In the future, I would love to see an anarchy symbol, oh and thanks for the mention, but the best design won in the end, congrats Imp.
