Thank you everyone for your kind words! :blush:

This has been a blast - the best out of three ETLs so far and is setting the target very high for the next one. Feel free to keep posting your work in this thread all you like.

Just to let everyone know, I will un-pin this thread tomorrow (in effect it will become a normal thread). It is still linked in the Official Events Archive thread here: http://www.bolterand...events-archive/ for easy access.

As I said, feel free to post normally. :)

Ok everybody, here are the medallions, compliments of Forte. You can choose the one with the appropriate number of seals depicting the number of your completions! :)

Credit goes to The Shadow Guard. He created the banners. I only rotated and shrank them.

no.gif It will ruin the aesthetic. However I have edited in the medallions next to the large banners in the Final Report posts. So just before the list with the names for each category, there is the appropriate badge and the relevant medallion. smile.png

When I get on a laptop I'll update my sig. Cheers for running a cracking challenge. Think I'm going to go into painting hibernation for a few months to reawaken next ETL.

OK, as many of you may know there is an acute issue with really long signatures. The B&C has certain rules regarding signatures and the banners may not exceed the 800x100 size. 

 

The standard size of the Custos Fidei (and the Oathbreaker) is 300x100. If you get three of these one next to another you have already exceeded the allowed size. Especially as many frater have banners from other events too, not to mention their own personalised banners.

 

To this end the Inner Circle has put forward the medallion shaped Custos Fidei. This helps people adding them to their signature and show their track record in the ETL (or other Inner Circle sponsored events). However on occasion even this proves to be not enough.

 

As such, The Shadow Guard, Grand Master of the Inner Circle, in his immeasurable benevolence came up with a third format:

 

 

THE MODULAR BADGE!

 

Here's the idea: There are two halves of the badge: The top one and the bottom one. On the top one is the generic ETL Badge and it's 500x50

 

ETL_Banner_01_Base_Top.jpg

 

The bottom half is modular and consists of many 50x50 badges that can be used to keep your track record as well as some blank ones that can be used to complete the space and have a proper rectangular shape. The red seals represent the number of completed vows. Obviously in the first ETL there was no limit of vows so if you completed more than 5 vows you can use the 5 seals one...

And to top it up there are two kind of blanks: one plain and one with the bottom of the winged sword embossed as the final right corners square!

 

BLANK & RIGHT CORNER

ETL_Banner_03_Corner_Blank.jpg ETL_Banner_03_Corner_Sword.jpg

 

 

So how does all this ties together? Here is an example for a Veteran of three ETLs: Lets say that in the first ETL he completed two vows, he failed to complete in the second and had three completions in the third. That's how it works:

 

 

 

ETL_Banner_01_Base_Top.jpg

For the Champions Badges or other the Badges of Excellence you can add them next to the appropriate Custos Fidei or you can use the original 100x100 ones at the end of the badge - but be careful: your sig would be 600x100 in that case. 
 
 
I hope you like this - it is a very neat way to show your track record in the ETLs without increasing the overall length of your sig. Obviously you can use the large badges or the medallions if you feel you are within the allowed signature size. 
 
 
BUT THIS IS NOT THE END OF THE MODULAR BADGE!
 
 
There will be a follow-ups that will include the PRIMUS INTER PARES alternative for the top section for each year as well as the substitution of the White Scar oval roundel in the top section with the ETL CREST that is still under development. 
 
I hope you enjoy and feel free to ask any questions! :)
