The symbol Jaap Stam wears upon his shield and engraved into his hammer. As far as we can tell, it is a marking from his father's side (a wandering friar), but its origins and connection are not yet known
them are some stupid and ugly ass pieces. Griffons without wings? Sure as hell ain't touching my army.

The coat of arms for Isaac Kanes family, also known as the Kane of Wolfenzan.

The pattern is black and silver, which will translate to black and white or Black and grey in clothing heraldy.

Oh, and remember GW made it personal, not you!

This is the Coat of arms for Everett Baum-Ruess. Having no living family and no estates to call his own he has made it himself.

Coat of arms of Freiherr Albrecht Kreuzer.  The three black stars are his three virtues: duty, honor and family.  The wolf for Ulric.

The family coat of arms of Simon Marnith.



For the record this is actually a version of my own family coat of arms (or at least the coat of arms that Google comes up with when I put my last name in).  The moto translates at "The gentleman is born not made", which is rather arrogant and non PC.

I love that slogan. Born, not made? That is awesome. Mind if I steal that line at some unspecified future date?

I hereby appropriate this coat of arms for the Friedman family.



The chicken to show their loyalty to Grossfurre. The shield represents the family holdings. The helm being the family's duty to serve their lord militarily. And of course, 'ministrado vigilans' "Vigilant in our serving." A motto which matches Karl Friedman perfectly.

No idea where the heraldry came from, but I'll gladly use it.

I did not have time for the major part of the campaign to post any fluff beside some official communications and diplomacy. Hopefully, I will find some time to write.

In the meantime, I present to you the heraldry of House Weissenberg... and yes I made it with crayons...

I think the symbol is a "manche" - a stylised depiction of the fancy sleeve of a medieval lady's dress. It would be kind of rhyming with the name "Marnith", which is how a lot of traditional heraldry works.
