In honor of our new experimental interceptor, I thought I’d throw this together:
I’d have asked Flasheart to do it, but I noticed he hasn’t been on for several months, so I took it upon myself. Hope you all like it! 🙂29/11/2015 at 18:21 #2424
Thank you Gabriel!
Would it be possible to use something that looks less like an armoured knight silhouette and more like a light lancer from the 19th century? I will see if I can find some examples.29/11/2015 at 18:30 #2436
OK. Some googling explains. The US references to “lancer” images bring up armoured knights and roman cavalry. In British English it specifically means the flashy uniformed light cavalry of the horse and musket era. It is a light, fast and dashing image, not the heavy, armoured kind. Specifically see things like Polish Lancers and Bengal Lancers. Googling Napoleonic Lancers will give some idea though I could not see an awesome silhouette.29/11/2015 at 19:27 #2497FulvusParticipant29/11/2015 at 20:14 #2501
Sorry, but that looks awfully like a St. George and the Dragon pose. The helm and cloak are too mediaeval. 🙁29/11/2015 at 22:06 #2507Jemel EahainModerator29/11/2015 at 22:41 #2509
Alright, as per Matsiyan’s request I worked some photoshop magic and put together a logo (2 versions of it) with a 19th Century British Light Lancer silhouette on it. I liked the suggestion as it makes sense with the vessel: Quick, not heavily armored, intended to swoop in and intercept rather than be in the thick of a fight.
One variant has a colored flag on the spear, the other non-colored.
Give me further feedback and lets see if we can settle on one so I can make a paint job for the vessel. 🙂30/11/2015 at 01:09 #2513
Thanks! I like the one with the coloured flag better.06/12/2015 at 16:41 #2687Adele MundyParticipant
//I like the lancer image! Now, if only all the crew would wear lancer uniforms… Be still, my heart!//13/12/2015 at 04:23 #2788
I managed a decent greyscal posterized version of this but don’t know how to upload it. This might create a uch more dynamic image.13/12/2015 at 04:38 #2790
You’ll have to link it… I don’t see anything but a broken image icon…13/12/2015 at 05:21 #279213/12/2015 at 21:20 #2801
Excellent choice of pic, Matsiyan! Thank you for the help of source material for the design! 🙂 Here’s the resulting Lancer Logo with some additions:
I definitely like the results best out of any of them thus far! 🙂18/12/2015 at 17:29 #2952
// sorry it took me so long to notice this. (I forgot to subscribe to this thread.) I really like this. It is dynamic and yet is true to the sense of the name. I love the way you silhouetted it and fitted it into the frame. The sense of urgency and impact leading up to the lance point is cool.
The real test is whether our C.O. Commander Jemel will buy into it.

Gabriel, what does it look like on the circular patch? or the shield?
