Here is the first stab at tokens for the craftworlders. The only thing really holding me back is that I haven't figured out what to use as the graphic for the Commander Aura. Factions of the Imperium use a typical laurel; factions of Chaos use a stylized Chaos star (shaped to resemble a laurel); I haven't cracked the code on the xenos. It's possible that I may just have to come up with a different Commander Aura element for each different xenos faction/sub-faction if I can't come up with a suitable element.

Anyhoo, here are the objective tokens for the main craftworlds:

I'll also have tokens for other craftworlds (that have their own runes), and probably for the key shrines that are in Kill Team (Dire Avengers, Howling Banshees, Striking Scorpions).

Any suggestions for improvement?

I would be tempted to use the Autarch rune although that only works for Craftworlders. I am struggling to think of common symbols across the 3 Eldar factions. The relationships between different components of Eldar culture are not as unified as the Imperium (or even Chaos) so there isn't an over-riding design element I can think of.

Sanguinius stood up, stretching his wings to their full extent. He flexed his hands. "I need no blade".
It was as though Sanguinius gleamed with pale light, his face white, eyes becoming blood-red, surrounded by the golden crown of flowing hair. Guilliman had witnessed glimpses of of his brother's wrath before, but had never seen the true Blood Angel unleashed. Sanguinius surged forward on alabaster wings, half a meter from the floor, whiteness streaming from him like flames.

The trick with the Commander Aura graphic is that it is added to the (sub-)faction icon. Imagine the objective markers above, but with some graphic added to the craftworld runes.

Yes, more and more I'm thinking that I'll have to create a graphic for each xenos faction (the Genestealer Cults and Tyranids might share a graphic). That is going to slow me down a bit. I already know that the Orks will use the iron jaw thingamajig, but everyone else is up in the air. They'll all be laurel-like, but themed to their (sub-)faction.

For the various Aeldari factions, I might incorporate the runes for the different commander types arranged in a laurel-like pattern. So the Asuryani graphic might incorporate the runes for Autarchs, Farseers, and Warlocks. The Harlequins would then use the runes for their commander types; and the Drukhari would use their own commander type runes (I haven't looked at them closely - I hope they have more than one commander type).
