Some time ago I created a graphic for the Officio Medicae - [link]
- to go with the new 40k medical fluff I was working on, but later realised I needed a simpler variant that was clear, distinct and regonisable even at low sizes (and also to be turned into transfers for objective items and vehicles... watch this space).
So I had a tinker around and came up with some variants. This one was intended to mirror the standard design for various Imperial organisations and offices ("I with Circle"). I wanted to try and keep the skull in there but also incorporate the snake. I had the idea of utilising the ouroboros symbol as the circle, which has similar connotations to the phoenix in terms of myth/symbols - so in some ways quite apt for a medical logo. The downside is this is not immediately recognisable as a "medical" symbol, and it does remind me a little of the old genestealer icon. I still rather like it though.
It's still only a rough version, so feedback is welcome
