Welcome to Librarium Online!
OK, I was looking through the 4th ed. rulebook and there is a cool looking Falcon in the Battle honours section of the campaign info. It's white with big stylised red/orange Saim Hann icons on it.
I really want to do this on my falcons ...but with a symbol which isn't the Saim Hann snake thing. However, every time I sit down to draw a logo, it looks like the Saim Hann snake thing.
Can anyone come up with a cool eldar icon that I can use? I can't promise you a prize or a reward. Other than seeing a photo of my meticulously painted Falcon complete with your iconography.
Hope you can help,
well, I play Saim-Hann so I would recommend the serpent, but I think the Ulthwe symbol is very good. google image "The Eye of Isha" or maybe you'd prefer the Iyanden one "The Shrine of Asuryan"

Thanks, but I was hoping that someone could sketch an original design - I like the others (especially Saim-Hann), but I wanted to put a non established design on it.
My colours are blue (azure from the Vallejo model colour ...if you know it) and white. I just know that if I paint the serpent on my vehicles, some arse will pipe up with "they can't be Saim-Hann ...they're not red/black" ...and I will get all grumpy about it
There are 3 other place I would look. The 3rd Ed Codex and CWE books have runes/symbols. The best is the large Rosetta Stone one towards the back of the Codex. Another place is the WD where the new Dire Avengers appeared. They have a large number of banners for the Dire Avengers and Autarchs.
So is this a craftworld of your own devising?
I reckon a link into Eldar mythology, for example the cosmic serpent, the eye of isha etc are all mentioned in the codex mythology. Picking out a feature of this will give you something to assiciate with.
Have you considered Vaul's anvil? Maybe a stylised anvil with a eldar blade, or chains. If i could sketch what i mean i would but i'm not at home at the moment.

Might I suggest looking at some hieroglyphics. Eldar borrow heavily from the ancient artsy cultures. Notable places they took from: Egypt, Japan/China, ancient Rome and Greece. Take a quick look at these cultures, mush them together with the Eldar fluff and hit frappe. This should give you some nice symbols to choose from.
