Default [Fall of Medusa] A Symbol to Rally us All

Now that the Hiarchy has been estblished for thos participating members- we need a symbol. Much like the Mont'au sticker the Dark Crusade had or the Third Sphere Symbol, this coalition needs a symbol that all members can have next to their names- identifying us as the Tau Online Coalition. Now, since the info we have on the Medusa Campaign has us fighting to protect an Array- perhaps it could be something oriented to that.
anyway- this is a COMPETITION- all those willing artists and designers, this is a chance for you to test your skill and have your work be posted by over 50 members on the most popular Tau website on the Internet. Your work will be credited, and we'll all be gratefull. The graphic should not be offensive in any way and should be "tau'ish" lets not have a severed Ork head on a spear. This competition will be open for the next two weeks- post your work here, or your questions or thoughts so that all can see then the Shas'El-Shas'O will talk to their nations, and once a nation agrees it will cast 1 vote, there are three Shas'O and they will decide- i have nothing to do with it-

Where may I source background information to get a 'feel' for the Tau orientation in this Medusa Campaign?

Any threads you can suggest I browse? any reference for these other logos from the past events?

Here are the U.S. campaigns leading up to Medusa V, Medusa V is supposed to be world wide right?, so none of these earlier campaigns should have any real baring, but its a good read I suppose.

I think we should aim to keep our symbol simple. Don't have seven interlocking symbols with a compicated meaning behind each. Just have a symbol that we can safely say "it looks cool!". The actual Tau symbol is little more than two circles and a line after all...........

Another thought (that's three today ). Should we base our co - alition on a particular sept? Say we are all from Sa'cea or T'au or.... you get the picture. Then Games Workshop can put in the conclusion fluff "with the inspired leadership of the contingent from the _______ sept, the battle was turned in favour of the Tau". It fits, yet distinguishes the TO members.

Something for the Australians (the seven Faolin is referring to I think) is this draft idea;



Seven motifs representing the seven combined septs supporting T'Au.

thoughts?

I like it, all 7 tau septs joining together for the greater good.

Pictures can speak a thousan words

Classy, tau-like and a little full metal alchemist in there to

(Groans) You just had to make me feel bad didn't you?

Quick query. How do you post up images onto the forums? I've never had to in the past, and now I can't figure out how to get my image idea on there.
