Warhammer 40k Officio Medicae Variant 2 by Light-Tricks Warhammer 40k Officio Medicae Variant 2 by Light-Tricks
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"). A little more straightforward than Variant 1, this simply includes my form of the asclepius within the "I". Less unique, but more instantly recognisable as being "medical".

It's still only a rough version, so feedback is welcome.

Full folder of symbol versions and variants here: [link]

Looks like a symbol for a Inquisitorial Ordos dedicated to medical science, perhaps a Radical organisation that seeks xenos technology to improve Imperial medical care-neat!

Although the I is used by many branches of the Imperium, the air time given to the Inquisition does tend to mean that that's what many think of when they see an I in a 40k context - but I like that idea and glad you like the design :)

Ah right, I didn't know that it was the official symbol for Imperial institutions-but thanks and no problem :D

To be fair I'm not sure if they still print them anywhere, they're still on certain transfer sheets, a Lexicanum still lists them too.

Lexicanum you say? Well, off to the internet it is then!

Oh yeah, just get all our 40K information from wikipedia ;)

I did as well, makes my record look more professional/Imperial :D

Best place for it :P

It looked really good :)

If you like fluffy stuff I'd definitely recommend checking out a friend's blog, the Palladian Guard, a couple of good fluff documents here [link] and here [link]

If you see a reference to Headologist, that's me lol

Nothing rough about this. As an ex Army medic, I've always had an attraction to the Officio Medicae and I think this one nails it better than the skull-and-ouroboros version.
