Just one new addition:

Erprobungskommando BSW (Field Test Unit Bushwacker)



Interpretation: this is my idea for a TharHes unit testing the Bushwacker in the field, against the Clans. (The unit's members might do so while serving in regular LCAF outfits). The compass rose on a gold ground is based on the bagde of MWO's Bushwacker. I also used the cogwheel and sword combination representing TharHes's own military forces.

Nice. Bushwacker is one of my favorite Lyran mediums.

The next batch was a request by Takiro, who is currently working on a military anti-Clan unit of the Order of the Five Pillars.
You can check it out here.


Sohei (non-canon)




Tennyo




Oniwaka




Shuinsen




Hands on Kannon







Furthermore, another request by HunterGratzner for an AU variant of the Andurien Rangers, loyal to the Mariks:


Andurien Rangers (alternate universe)

1st Andurien Rangers

Fantastic work Flieger!

I just have to say again what a pleasure it was working with you on the Sohei insignias. I had a great time bouncing ideas off you and receiving some great art concepts in return. The final pieces are awesome, thanks again!

Like that Marik one too!

If you're still down to do requests, would you be willing to do any Taurian units?

Maybe one for the Taurian Velites?

I'd also be interested in more Rasalhagian unit insiginias.  O0

Thanks for your post!

Unfortunately I have really no time for it right now. Sorry.
But I will make a note and will consider them again when I am less busy. I wanted to do some FRR insignia anyway.

Flieger, all I can say is Prost!
I imagine a bar on Solaris with all of your artwork( major unit crest) up on the walls. And unit stickers from smaller units on every surface in between.

Hello there,

thanks for the positive feedback! Unfortunately I am still in a hiatus, but I managed to complete three insignia I have been working on for a long time. Especially the lack of the 19th Arcturan Guards has long bothered me. I am sorry I could not work on requests, but I have not forgotten.

19th Arcturan Guards




Kaumberg Planetary Guard



Interpretation: this is based on the Kaumberg planetary flag.


Norns



Interpretation: I changed the Steiner fist in the background to the pattern we see in the older Intelligence Ops HB (which sported different insignia for most of the intelligence agencies), because I like it better than the generic Steiner-logo.

Yeah sorry, it has been a long time since I updated the thread. But I am sure I want to reply.  ;)

I have done a few insignia and would like to share them. Some of them were a request I got long ago and I finally finished it. Should I have forgotten about some promisses I made I am very sorry; just drop me a note.
Also, this post is the first to feature a Taurian unit, the Commandos.


The Duke of Duran (Frederick Steiner)



This is based on the drawing in the old Steiner sourcebook:




Defiance Industries Zeus



Interpretation: Eagle and thunderbolt are symbols of Zeus in the Greek mythology, and they are combined with the Steiner-fist and the colours and logo of Defiance Industries.



Concordat Commandos




Black Knights

    ...        ...   

Interpretation: this was a request by Black_Knyght; red is for the Mechs, blue for the fighters, green for the tanks

Absolutely FANTASTIC work with those! Couldn't be happier, and I'm very grateful too.  8)

These are really great stuff. Love the work you've done here, especially on some of the more obscure ones.

Would you be open to a Request?

Thanks for the compliments!  :)

Would you be open to a Request?
Sure, absolutely. Just send me a PM and I will see what I can do. It's just that fulfilling the request might take a while and/or be beyond my capabilities.

Just found the artwork, very impressive.
Some of this artwork is a lot better than cannon. O0

Would you be interested in doing some more DCMS unit insignias? Maybe the 5th Sword of Light or some of the District Regulars?

Well, it took me a while  ;D

The District Regulars were recently done, and much better than I ever could. Curiously the Sword of Light did not get an upgrade, though I can imagine why. One basically has to use textures, otherwise the insignia are very dull. I don't like working with textures either, but I gave it a try.

I also added Japanese numerals, because I really, really like numerals in my insigna. Hopefully they are the right ones. Anyway, here is the sword of Light.


Sword of Light

1st Sword of Light




2nd Sword of Light




5th Sword of Light




8th Sword of Light






Furthermore, I added two FedCom regiments:

Federated Commonwealth Corps

1st FedCom Regiment (4th Succession War era)



It was never shown, but described in the NAIS Atlas. Frankly I like the concept...


1st FedCom Regimental Combat Team (post 3055)



Again, I went with the description, even though the canonic one looks quite different.


4th Alliance Guards



Again, I added numerals...

Thank you! Sometimes inspiration strikes.
Right now the Taurians interest me, but doubt I get to them anytime soon...

I love these. The quality and consistency are both outstanding. Must have been a lot of work even if it was done over several years. Great job.

I dig your rendition of the 6th's insignia. Mind if I make use of it?

I am wondering if you would look at making a Lryan style based on the style of
House Orlock
House Steiner Fist wrapped in Chain

You have a hell of a talent for making these..  I knew of your Sohei ones.

Indeed, I think it can be done. I'll give it a try when I am on vacation, but that will not be any time soon.  ;D Sorry, but rest assured, I have it on my radar. I may take years, but it will be done.
