The Aquila and Other Symbols

Postby Yoda » Wed Aug 15, 2012 1:31 pm

For reasons of copyright and not getting our asses sued, we cannot condone any use of Games Workshop's aquila emblem, or any other Games Workshop symbol in any promotional materials attributed to our game or events. This includes the wiki, forum and website in general.

We do have our own version of the aquila that is in use throughout the Ruhrort sector, and the image files can be made available to anyone who has need of them. I will be adding a copy of the aquila to the wiki in due time as well.

Thanks for your understanding on this matter.

Rob spoke about that at the game and he said as long as we don't pay money for it wee can have it on or out fits costumes and props etc. is that still the case?

Official GW guidelines are here: http://www.games-workshop.com/gws/conte ... eMode=true

It basically comes down to "if you're not selling it, it's probably fine". As this website is part of our promotional material, we cannot allow use of GW trademarks and IP (outside of fair use). That said, pictures of your costumes and props should not be a problem.

You can now find the basic image on the wiki at:
http://wiki.norestforthewicked.org.uk/File:Aquila.png

There is also a trimmed version at:

Unfortunately, it appears that I have lost my original files for the aquila so I'm going to have to scratch-build it again. Which will be fun.

In a stroke of good news, I've managed to recover the original aquila vector file. So, people can get more advanced formats to play with as well.

Cool, thanks. This gives me something to work with for future props.
Occasionally, I forget that the world and I have largely differing views on what matters.
