Welcome to Librarium Online!
I just recently finished painting my first ever tactical squad, and I'm looking to do a free hand paint job on the sergeant's banner. Below is a picture of both the sergeant currently and a sketch of the design I was thinking of.
a) do you think this design is too simple?
b) is it weird for a tactical sergeant to have a banner with the 4th company sign on it? ie - does it look too much like a chapter banner?
c) if I go with this idea, what color should the IV be?
Any and all suggestions/criticism is much appreciated!
I think that it is good for a Squad banner, you could put a chapter colored border around the edge and change the # to the squad number.

I think you shouldn't make the 'blood drop' yellow. A blood drop has to be red, otherwise you'll be the only one who will understand it is a blood drop.

I only did it that way to match the blood drops that come on the transfer sheet for Blood Angels... I assume that because those ones are yellow then it is legit?I think you shouldn't make the 'blood drop' yellow.

Well, for anyone who's interested here is a picture of the completed sergeant with the banner painted! I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, although the "V" and the blood drop aren't quite centered.
Picture taken with a fancy Nikon D60 - so much better than my usual point and shoot digital! Hope you enjoy!
Again, any suggestions or criticism will help out a lot in future efforts.
