Thats fine. It's the design that counts, not the realism.

Here's my entry:

Iron_Guard.png
This is the standard of a family that prides itself for its courage and loyalty. The Iron Guard originated from this family, so the standard bears a resemblance of the Iron Guard's helmet along with five jewels representing the riches of the family.

EDIT:

Iron_Guard_2.png
A little technical change... Design is still the same though... This time the colors are darker. Because it is all about design I just placed it right here as just sort of an alternate variation.

Some really great work has been posted so far :closedeyes:

Here are my designs:

Posted Image
A banner of a renowned blacksmith family.

Posted Image
This is the banner of the dwarven family that replaced the Great Minas Tirith Gate. Famous blacksmiths that specialize in gate crafting.

Posted Image
This is the crest of a dwarven family that came with Dain Ironfoot from the Iron hills and settled in Erebor. A family of great warriors.

Posted Image
This family of gem miners does not have a particular banner but instead inlay their bracers with two blue and one red gem.

Posted Image
Posted Image
The insignia of the House of Groin and his two sons Gloin(father of Gimli) and Oin, espesially good at making fire.

Most of these were drawn by hand and coloured with Photoshop. The runes are from a font.

I really like the last one... The contrast on some of the others make it somewhat hard to see the design, but the Iron Hills Family also looks pretty awesome (now that I can see the mountains). Most of the rest are pretty generic, but good nonetheless.

OK, this isn't mine of course, but seeing as it's on topic I thought I might as well include it, just in case you guys hadn't seen it before. By the way, this isn't an entry for the competition :p.

I found it while looking for some Dwarven background for the competition. Hope this helps. :good:

...The Journey doesn't end here; death is just another path, one that we all must take. The grey rain curtain of this world rolls back, and all turns to silver glass. And then you see it. White shores...and beyond. A far green country, under a swift sunrise...

...Many folk like to know beforehand what is to be set on the table; but those who have laboured to prepare the feast like to keep their secret; for wonder makes the words of praise louder...

...Stand, Men of the West! Stand and wait! This is the hour of doom... ~ Gandalf the White, The Return of the King

I really don't do requests and my Arnor Soldier is not fit for BFME. Don't ask me for either.

Not sure, but I've seen it before. I think it may be from that "Last Alliance" independant game.

So here is a khazad guard banner as nertea wished.

I think the quality isn´t good yet, but i think it shows in which direction it should go.
i will make a second one with better quality^^

Discription:
The hlemet in the center of the banner stands for the grandfather of this family who fought in the battle of Moria
as Khazad Guard and where killed by orks. For this reason there are the letters which mean:" Khazâd ai-mênu"
this is the battle cry gimli is shouting at helms deep and means something like :" Revange for Khazâd(-dûm)".
The ax in the baground is a symbol of the family's stand, as they are warriors defending Erebor or another dwarf hold. The color Red is a symbol for the dwarfs killed in so many battles, the blue streaks symbolizes the differences withe the elves and the men. Furthermore the big green streaks stands for the little hope for peace in middle earth.

Actually Khazâd ai-mênu means "The Dwarves are Upon You" but anywho.

Here's my first try, not very good but I'm gonna spit out a couple more later.

Erebor.JPG

The Letters on the Hammer are L and B and the Inscription on the anvil is "Longbeard"
