Banners and how they work
The game has 2 banners - the campaign and the personal banner.

The campaign banner is the banner in the middle of the main menu. Its automatically upgraded with more and more adornments from Blood Angels as you play the main campaign. Its automatic upgraded.

The personal banner is your multiplayer "avatar". It is configurable from the Librarium and is shown on the debriefing screen after a game ends together with your opponents,

It has different categories (shapes, colors, poles, main center images from different chapters etc)

As you play the single player game (and soon multiplayer), you have a chance to unlock a category. And for some categories you can unlock additional images.

The chance to unlock is purely random in the spirit of the dice gods.

The chance of unlock is based on the difficulty level for a given mission
Easy = 10%
Normal = 25%
Hard = 50%

What is unlocked is also drawn randomly.

There are
13 colors (3 unlocked at start)
6 poles + the exclusive preorder one
4 banner shapes with each 2 shapes on (8 total)
3 center image background patterns with each 6 shapes on (18 total)
1 top with 8 images
16 center image unlocks with each 6 chapter specific images (96 total)
1 border unlock with 16 borders
and 3 times lower images with each 2 unlocks containing 36 images (72 total for each of the 3)

So there are a few combos making your banner unique and cool.

Cool! Why didn'y you guys include all of the above information in the game? Would have been useful to know all this.

As said - once we just give the MP part a quick whirls, we will add the unlocks to MP too.

Are backgrounds bugged? I have unlocked everything else, done like 8 hard missions after the fact with no more unlocks and the background tab is still locked.

EDIT: I guess I was just getting screwed by RNG because it finally unlocked :)

Like someone said in another thread. Is it possible that campaign banner unlocks are blocking your chance to unlock personal banner stuff? Since I find it unlikely I finished all 12 missions of the normal campaign, and unlocked no new categories at all. Some of are saying that now that they are replaying missions they are getting lots of personal banner unlocks.

Here's Hoping that the multiplayer unlock chance is somewhere between Normal and Hard difficulty, if not just even with Hard. You are playing another person, after all.

Hrmm, either banner unlocks stopped working sometime tonight, or I had some terribad luck. I got 1 unlock about 6 hours ago. Since then I've completed 6 hards and 3 normals, 0 unlocks. Possible, but only .5^6*.75^3 = .66% chance of occuring.

Or if the prequel doesn't unlock banners like everyone was talking about in other threads, then .5*.75^3 = 21.1% chance of 0 unlocks, which is a lot more probable.

It is totally possible to get campaign and personal banner unlocks at the same time. The messages would queue up

I'd already beaten the campaign once and unlocked the full campaign banner, I was going back to do some of the previosly bugged achieves and test if you could get banners from the prequel missions.

I'm not sure if i'm the only one, but in the personal banner the Blood Angels insignia clearly has a square outline (when it's without a border) that kinda detracts from the overall look.

banner unlocks stopped working for me. I was repeating a few prequel missions on hard and getting unlocks at, I guess, 50%. Then I returned to campaign, did a mission I hadn't done before on normal and failed to complete it. I have not yet completed this mission but since then any hard prequel mission I have done (which is lots) result in no more unlocks. Maybe it will fix itself when I finish the campaign mission I am stuck on.

I found that the rate you unlock stuff at drops once you had unlocked most of the banner items. I ended up getting a new item once every 5-6 games towards the end.

Anyone else notice all the Wolf icons that turn up for your personal banner? Might be the Space Wolves are the next chapter that gets added

Ahh, I understand how it works now. I kinda like the percentage on unlocks for it, along with the basing it on the difficulty.
