Whipping up a quick topic dealing with an interesting project I had on my mind for some time now.
There are several crossbow building forums out there...We have The Russian Forum(several actually), The Swedish Forum, The French Forum, and of course Us(USA)....perhaps there are others, so you are also welcome to mention them here.
I would like to create something like a small network between us all by providing a links panel with our coat of arms icons serving as links....while other forums already have or are working on their icons, we however still have no coat of arms to date.
Therefore I propose we combine our effort to design this symbol to represent The Arbalist Guild on the Net and other places in the world.
My inspiration for this idea comes from Robin Allen's - Cranequin Fellowship(Guild ) Coat of Arms.
A few details I would like to mention on my vision:
1. It would be a Shield or Crest shape.
2. The Arbalist Guild scribed on it.
3. Employing both medieval and modern crossbow elements.
4. A symbol that this is an Ameican forum, however with a slightly international theme...since we have members from all over the world joining our group.
5. Possibly we can also fit the tools of the trade to help signify that the forum is about crossbow "building".
These are just a few things that I think might help design this symbol and I'm looking forward to hearing your ideas and suggestions.
PS: If you wish to show a draft of what you are thinking about, it can be presented in any format/quality.
I'm not bad with the utensils(my avatar was done in my own hand),
Ok, Hope to hear from you guys...an idea is an idea...might just shoot.
