Alright, so this is going to be a bit of a trickle, but I've been finding some time here and there.
First up are the 1st and 2nd St. Ives Janissaries. I always liked the fact that these units were modeled on the Ceti Hussars, so instead of going with the shield depicted in canonical sources, I decided to break and go with one based off the Ceti Hussars insignia. The jump ship is replaced by a white horse, and the elements seen on the original insignia are maintained but moved around and in some cases re-sized. I interpreted the Gold (1st) and Silver (2nd) trim as non metalic (per my modus operandi), so that it appears gold/yellow and grayish.
ED: My take on what a Pre-Black May massacre St. Ives Janissaries insignia would look like. This is meant as a Brigade insignia, before the 1st and 2nd were upgraded to brigade levels in their own right.
1st St. Ives Janissaries
2nd St. Ives Janissaries
ED: 3rd St. Ives Janissaries. This unit never made it to "prime time". It was still in the process of being formed when the CCAF invaded the Compact. It's existing forces were later assigned elsewhere, and plans to build the unit after the end of the conflict seem to have languished.
Now for something completely different... The 1st Capellan Defense Force isn't formed from the remains of Stapleton's Grenadiers until around the 3060s, but I thought I'd throw it in, since I haven't been showing the Capellans as much affection as some others.
ED: Once upon a time there was a Terran March within the Federated Suns, which was later absorbed into the Draconis March. The notion of a Terran March Militia appeals to me to no end, but as far as I can tell one either didn't exist, hasn't been covered in existing source material, or was only very obscure. So, without a decent source I decided to make one up. The gold background and red stripe are meant to represent Robinson, which was the Capital of the Terran March and later the Draconis march (per Sarna, none of my sources had anything). The star is meant to represent both the traditional ties with terra, as well as the potential threat posed by the Terran Hegemony.
ED: Purely conjectural Insignia for a St. Ives Provisional Salvage Brigade. Some of these did see combat, specifically the brigade commanded by Col. Lucas Tolek on Milos. The colors are meant to be very simple and straight-forward, as is the design as a whole, given the wartime/provisional nature of the unit. I may have had the ROK's 9th Infantry insignia in mind when I whipped this up.
ED: Subdued version of my St. Ives insignia.
ED: 7th Capellan Reserve Calvary. To give the Cappies a little more love and attention.
3rd St. Ives Lancers insignia. Not sure if we'll ever see one, but I've had this idea in mind for a while and just wanted to do it.
Thanks for watching! More to come!
