Since it's looking like outfit decals will be coming to Planetside 2 sometime in the not-too-distant future, I thought it might be time to see if anybody has any ideas. I'm not sure if you remember, but my first venture into the Player Studio resulted in the general consensus of no Smurf-related imagery. At all. Absolutely not. So there goes this little fella...

Never mind eh - looking back on him I still need to make that gun into a SAW, so... whatever

Anyway, I was looking through some of my old 40k stuff the other day and thought that the Space Marine assault squad markings - crossed double-headed arrows - would probably look pretty distinctive as a logo, so here's my first sketch based on that idea.



Any thoughts? Love it? Hate it? It needs plenty more work, but you should get the concept.

The way I see it, things like skulls, knives, etc are out (not really our thing). I also wanted to keep it bright (almost cartoony) to be in keeping with the Smurf vibe. The whole NC logo in the middle looks a bit shit (in my opinion), so that's why there's just the star.

And the wreath because... well, it was in my head from looking through marine stuff, and I love a good wreath anyway...

Also, since the outfit camo is white we need to stay away from that for the main part, and since the body of the NC banners (when we dominate a base) is blue, it needs to contrast with that too..... so that's how I ended up with yellow. We can go with any colours, not just the NC palette (below), but since we don't have any pre-existing community logo then I figured staying with the palette in the first instance.



Text is out of the question for decals, although they are probably relaxing that for outfit-specific logos. Rather than plastering [XSG] across the middle I thought about looking at integrating an apt motto, such as a scroll with the classic morituri te salutant ("those who are about to die salute you" on it

I want your input here. Please!!!

As usual, sorry for the long post. Who knows, maybe I'll write something short one day

I like it ... I can't help but feel that it needs 4 more arrows to make the Chaos Star, as chaos usually follows us around XD

In my opinion, that first Smurf one is pretty awesome but if we can't have it, we can't have it..

Well done on the designs by the way... Very talented

Oh, I thought we could get new stuff for the upcoming outfit decals? I mean, even if it's not visually compelling? Since it's just for us.
