I like 'em both but good emblem's are simple so Hetan's hit's the mark for me. Brood's right, though. The Burner's are kind of their own unit and just go where the fight's the worst. And it's gotta say, "First in, last out" somewhere.

I would think it works better as just one-sided shirts. Front or back I don't know, whatever is preferred. The other alternative is to do the emblem on one side and the text on the other, but I have no particular preference myself.




New attempt, taking into account the comments - working on the banners separately, but here's the emblem. Two different textures on the bridge, which is preferred?

Those last two are much beter definitely. Im not on the colour of the shield though.

For the Brdige texture im really not sure as it took me a while to even notice they were different. I think I slightly prefer the top one but its very close

Odd, because I don't use photoshop :D Though I imaging all the programs are fairly similar with their rendering options.

I'm thinking Broody we should work on one thing at a time.
Make the shield outline silver and the background black and do away with all the other elements.
Once we've had a look at that we can work on the other stuff - I like the top one better. :p

Struggling to make it particularly metallic, unfortunately.

I definitely prefer that last shield to the others.

Last attempt the best. Remember: simplicity will make it more recognizable. The previous two are a bit busy with the frills and all. Besides, the whole cursive & heraldry thing has been done to death lately. It should be bold and assuming, like your most recent. Nice work, though I'm not sure about the crown over the shield. Maybe a cusser would be better.Posted Image

You could try making the interior edges harder (sharper) on the metallic areas and with a higher contrast.

Using Photoshop, you can get this effect using (layer) Blending options of bevel and emboss and playing around with the settings. Your software might have something similar?

Hope this helps.

That, with a few adjustments, worked quite well, thanks Smiles!

So my current thinking for a layout was this:

2nd Army
First In Emblem Last Out
Bridgeburners

That is much better -much better Broody :p

I'm thinking that perhaps to do away with the crown at the top (It's not used as a malazan army sigil is it?) and put "first in and last out" on a riband there instead and Bridgeburners at the bottom?

I know it's never mentioned, but I quite like it. But I'll have a play round, see how it works out.

If people prefer the silver, here is a potential design...

Dont suppose it would be possible to show it on a different background as i dont think it looks that good on the grey squares?

Nice work Broody, that definitely works though I think the logo itself is starting to be dwarfed by the ribands in those pics.

Am I the only one who thinks 2nd Army is irrelevant? The bridgeburners were a seperate division who were attached to numerous armies, and I think it would work better with just 'Bridgeburners' top, and 'first in, last out' underneath.

I quite like the coloured one over the silver one, the crown does work though I'd rather a bigger bridge emblem than the crown, as that doesn't really fit with the malazan theme (don't think there is ever a reference to a malazan crown), as a suggestion to fit in with the malazan theme, perhaps turn the bottom of the shield which already looks almost like a claw, into a claw grasping a burgandy orb. Though that may be far too much work.

Much better, but I agree with Imperial Historian. Bridgeburners at the top, First in Last Out at the sides ( no 2nd company or crown)
I'll leave it to you to see if you can work the whole claw and crystal ball thing in somewhere :p

I don't know if you all agree with this, but how about going with just:


First in,

'EMBLEM'

Last out

If anyone recognizes this, they''ll know the reference, so does it need to be stated?
