Birthday Honours: Custom Heraldic Charges!
So it's my birthday on the 18th, and to celebrate this important occasion, I am giving out some Birthday Honours. That is to say, I will create some custom charges - symbols - for your coats of arms. Here's an example[zarkonnen.com] of arms with a custom charge.

This symbol will be hand-drawn by me, unique to you, and can't be used by anyone else. I'm doing this on a first-come-first-served basis for the first five people to reply to this thread with a valid request.

What makes a valid request? The charge must be:
  • Simple to represent. I only have 14x14 pixels to work with.
  • All in one colour.
  • Nothing sexual, no real-world political symbols or trademarks.
  • Not already used by someone else. If you pick something that's already used, you can try again.
And I also need either your steamID64 or your Airships forum user name[airships.zarkonnen.com] so I can associate your custom charge with you.

Example valid request:

I'd like two crossed daggers. My Steam ID is 76561398294718277.

Example invalid request:

I'd like a green-orange striped swastika made out of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥.

(And of course the final decision who to make charges for is mine.)

Anyway, with all those details out of the way, request away! Feel free to ask for clarification as well. If you're stuck for ideas, have a look at this handy list[en.wikipedia.org].

I'd like a Mantis head and maybe a raptorial arm on either side of it

cataclysm - Yep, Triskelion works. Very nice and traditional. May end up a little bit wonky because of symmetry.

Дварф@ - Do you mean an elder sign? Can do. :)

Mikey21 - So a praying mantis head, right? Will see if I can add the arms without too much visual clutter.

Two left!

Wrench me, baby!

Don't really care about the color scheme. White on black is fine, but I'll take anything you think looks interesting.

Gimme me a second to find that steam id...

Also, Happy Birthday! Maybe you should make yourself a cake charge.

A black-on-white horned skull would be cool.

71 - Ah, but there already is a wrench charge. So while I agree that your wrench image is nicer, it's not distinct enough. Can you think of another thing?

Moros - Sure!

And that's it for slots! You'll be getting your new coats of arms on the 18th. :)

You could call it the 'Wrench!' charge. Totally different. :)

But seriously, if you'd like it to be more distinct, would this suffice?

Failing that, I'll settle for a piece of cake. Literally, give me a cake / cake slice charge. Candle optional.

All done! Feel free to ask for adjustments - and you can change the colours and layouts yourselves using the in-game arms editor. It will display your custom charge as an option.

Yay! Thanks.

Note: initially the game let me deploy the charge in conquest mode as well without issue, but now after messing around for a few minutes, I can't choose the charge via conquest mode.

The official arms editor on the main menu continues to work without issue.
