Default What does this 3 pointed triangle symbol mean? (FW brass etch)

I was looking on FW see if there was anything of inspiration and I came across the etched brass signs for the renergades and well I haven't a clue what it means so thought id post a picture and see what you guys know about it.

Is it a crappy version of the 8 sided star of chaos?

looks a bit like a nurgle sign to me. They have the 3 arrows around the 3 circles, That's what it looks like most I think.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symbol_of_Chaos

It's an aysmmetrical sybol of chaos albiet with just the 3 largest points then. Scroll down a bit to see what I mean.

Is it just me, or does it look like an Eldar rune?

I thought that as well, but it's a chaos symbol so that's just coincidence.
