    An AR might cover up to much of the banner, I'm digging the two swords.

    Well, lets break down the design of the patch shall we....

    Red text around the border, Aussie flag has the british one which has alot of red, so i thought red should have a place in it, plus, it breaks up the blue well enough. Halo text is there, and Southern Cross Spartans made sense for us Aussies anyway.

    Metallic ring is a Halo Ring seen from the side profile.

    The 2 Energy Swords, which are set in the "Crossed Swords" design from the Halo 3 multiplayer logos. Done in blue to represent the Australian flags blue

    The Master Chief helmet at the back, cause well, he had to be there somewhere.

    The Southern Cross, a unique part of the southern hemisphere, a stellar constilation which points due south, used by early navigators as reference. It's on various flags of our region of the world. (notice how they sit on the joins of the crossed energy swords

    That is the basic rundown.

    But things i DIDN'T WANT, the aussie flag, ODST Marines etc, cause they aren't as well known, assault rifles cause it's southern cross (ed) spartans so the swords suit the title.

    How do you think of the black background?
    Can you make a version with white?
    Can you give me permission to save this and tinker with it myself?

    Sorry can't get rid of all the reds without the original layers, but I think it looks better with a tinge of red as its border.

    Well, we don't really want to just follow what everyone else does.
    We Australians should have something unique.

    We could assign colours to ranks or states for the badge too, NSW can have blue, QLD can have Red, Vic can have pink etc

    The most important thing is, to keep the design simple so if we make these INTO patchs, they would actually look okay, cause they would loose alot of the finer details.

    Maybe we can add at the bottom, instead of 405th, like "NSW Division" or "Vic Division" Etc.

    I think we should start with one patch idea and work from it. The reason i went with red, is cause we have red on our flag.

    why does Vic have to have pink??? wtf!... but I'm serious... no pink...

    Yeah we should start with one for all of Australia, i like Z's original design. Do you want to send a PM to Adam and see what he thinks Z? Just get him to check out the discussion on this thread.

    Nah, i think your the man with the contacts around here, feel free to PM adam with the idea. Im not one for taking the spotlight, i might have designed it, but i designed it for all of us, so all the input is great. I had so many ideas i wanted to use, but i had to ditch them cause it would be to cluttered, i wanted to intergrate NZ in their somewhere.

    I PM'd Adam

    Yeah, that's cool. I raelly can't stand that halo font though. Just me.
    He seems happy with it.

    Are we all happy if i request this becomes the "official" Aussie logo and name. Or does anyone have some tweaking suggestions first?

    And Z, If your looking at making this into a patch, PM spase, hes the brand manager for the 405th.

    Reinforcements are here! I'm from Melbourne, VIC . (too bad no-one else is )

    [attachment=8110:Perfect_...ogo_copy.jpg]

    A little contribution (don't expect anyone to take it seriously, though ). UANZC stands for United Australian New Zealand Corps. I didn't put Armour Corps 'cos I don't think it rolls of the tounge quite as well.

    i like the patch, the name too. the southern cross is generally associated with australia so it provides some identification. also i wanted all your input on something. ive been thinking of ways to customoize my armour to give it an australian army type theme. if you know the uniform at all you'd notice the rising sun biscuit on the left shoulder above the ANF. i was thinking of sticking a rising sun hat badge through the shoulder piece of my armour and maybe creating some kind of metal flag to go underneath. what do you think? im also thinking the flag should be the black version as its more spec ops. also if you like the idea i can buy you all hat badges and post them if you like. i can get as much of that stuff as i want.
    cheers.

    I haven't completely finished it yet, but its assembled and almost ready to paint, i just need to fill in a few gaps. It will be done this weekend

    Yep, there's HEAPS of stuff happening in NSW in the next few months!
    There Sydney supanova on June 26-28 http://www.supanova.com.au/
    and next weekend there's Animania mini in sydney (March 28). But thats all for japanese anime and games, not the mainstream style convention like supanova and armageddon. But its worth going too even if your not an anime fan, but just for the awesome cosplayers.
    http://animania.net.au
    There's also Animania main, September 5-6, 2009 at the Australian Technology Park, Everleigh, NSW.

    You also have GenCon later in the year: http://www.genconoz.com/
    And SMASH : http://www.smash.org.au/ (SMASH is another Anime con)

    The Patch is pretty much ready to make some of. I'm Pricing up some of it now, Initial Run will probably cost me about $100 to make only 5 to 10 of them, so they won't be cheap. But i aim to make every run different so we can have unique patchs
