Welcome to Librarium Online!
Wondering if anyone has any cool chaos banners for 40k, I want to paint myself a nice new one and been pondering over some ideas, but any other ideas would be cool, I have one of a demons head with a book curled in the horns.
The other idea is an space marine (probably ultramarine) raising his fist up, with a giant gash through it, and/or a cross over it, And the last is the work "anukadra" down the side, the name of my daemon prince (one day) and a space marine head with a simple sword through it.
So I searched "banner" in CMON and these are some of the stand outs for me personally, some really talented people out there.
Sorry I don't have links to their actual profiles or anything, I was in a bit of a hurry.
The details on the side parts, W0W!
Simple but looks nice all the same.
This one is one of the best I think of the group.
Still a WIP but looks fine I think how it is.
If any are oversize, sorry guys!
If you want me to move this to the painting of the week thread then I'm happy to.

So exactly what you're after? I don't see what to propose after so many wonderful banners you have included...
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
I was after something more chaos specific, my legion is sort of a word bearers philosophy but they worship their greater daemon prince, I don't know how to write fluff well, but I was hoping to tie in the word bearers look of a banner with daemons, but chaos banners are almost non-existant.
Ive got to say its all alot harder than these people make it look. Why not go for an ornate looking undivided icon banner with flames underneath? Otherwise search google images for daemons and stuff. That brings up some nice finds.
I found this one that looks pretty cool but would be horrendous to paint.
I think all the time I've spend drawing gives me a nice ability to paint shapes well, its just very fine lines that I cant do, with a pencil sure, but brushes bend,flex, a single strand comes off the side and makes extra lines. pencils are simple.
Not saying I can paint up that picture in a heartbeat, but I think I would do better with something that hasn't got a "paint inside the lines" look.
Those detailed banners with the crisscrossing parts and that wire kind of look some of them have, I honestly can't imagine how long that took to make.
chaos usually doesnt "do" banners... chaos does dead stuff on a stick, hehe
thats probably why you cant find any.
jokes aside, chaos is more object-based in its iconography, i.e
want a gory image of a severed head?
-then lop someones head off and put it on a stick!
embroidering really isnt their forté .
edit: bloodletters did have a painted banner though.. but still, painted in blood..

I thought there would of been a slight chance of some here and there, I mean it does have the black legion banner in the codex so I figured there would be more about Shame.
