    First topic message reminder :

    Hello Everyone,

    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 Wink ) 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.

    Thank You,

    Ivo

    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),
    Spoiler:
    ...but on occasion do little lame sketches in MS Paint...so those are more than welcome to help picture your design. Here is a small example of what I sketched up while discussing coat of arms on the Russian forum.(that's my bear in the picture Smile ) with cut and pasted pieces of patent pictures thrown together for a basic idea.

    Ok, Hope to hear from you guys...an idea is an idea...might just shoot. Very Happy

    Ivo,

    How about a simple shield, split down the middle with a verticle bolt on one side and a verticle half crossbow on the other and with your talent throw in a border on the shield and appropriate colors ?

    Ivo,

    How about the simple shield bordered in white like wise the split down the middle and on the left a white bolt on a sield of red and on the right the half verticle crossbow in white on a field of royal blue?

    There I just spent my two cents on the subject.
