Alright, since we're going to be a real, honest-to-Gods squadron, I figured that I'd ask what, if any, mascot our squad should have.  The only requirements being that it not obscene, or easily confused with those of other squads.  Any ideas?

Well, I work in photoshop fairly regularly (I'm mostly into 3d; I use PS for texturing. Still, I can photoshop fairly well).
So, I can come up with some sort of emblem for grey squad if you want me to.
Or, if you wanted to do this yourself, I can certainly help.
I can also do signatures for all the squadmates who want me to.
Sparky: If there are some guidelines you feel need to be observed while making these things, please let me know.

name change
« Reply #17 on: April 26, 2007, 06:29:37 PM »
By the way, from now on I'll be using a new profile for the 58th forums, with the same name as my callsign (Outlaw), as to avoid any confusion.
Sparky: Could you please have the CAG change the name from 'newman' to 'Outlaw' in the 58th listings? (Or should I do this myself?)
Anyway, next time I sign in it will be with the new profile.

I would say, since we are Grey Squadron, this is an obvious choice: http://tinyurl.com/28srtu

Wow...
Somehow I was stupid and hadn't thought of that.  I was wanting to stay away from Earth-culture concepts, but then again there's no reason to suggest that "Greys" aren't a part of colonial culture as well.  I'm kind of a nonbeliever when it comes to such things, but I still like it as a mascot.  I was thinking of something like the "Sharks", or the "Snakes"(maybe Samuel L. Jackson could have been our mascot!), or as a joke, The "Flying Daggits"( Maybe only if we had been Fuzzy Brown squad instead of Grey.), but then again, I hadn't thought of that.  I like.

The first one gives me the creeps though.  I don't know why, but I don't think it would look too great on a Viper though.  Something more along the lines of the peaceful, anal probing, civilization of do gooders and researchers.  I know it doesn't make much sense on a warbird, but I'd kind of like something ironic, like maybe a grey riding "Dr. Strangelove" style on a missile.  But it's your call, because I want you guys to decide what you want, not me.

I just had a great idea (at least in my opinion). Let's make him our mascot - the Xenu: http://www.scientomogy.com/xenu7.jpg
And i think this could be our logo - simple, but effective: http://www.mactonnies.com/v2.gif

OK, seriously now (as noone seems to have liked my monty python joke :))
I threw this in PS - it's just a sketch, but I'd like to know if you guys would like something like this.

Not to just into this thread, but Green squadron is known as the Star Wolves, so Gray wolves would be too close, I think. Just a note.

Outlaw, so maybe instead of Grey Wolves make Grey Hounds. How about that?

Gray Hounds is cool.. not bad. Although, I don't see the similar names - "Gray Wolves" and "Star Wolves" as a problem.
We are part of the same squadron, after all. But Gray Hounds is cool as well. Up to you guys.
As a side-note - the pic I posted is just a sketch - if we go with the grey wolf/hound as a squad mascot, I'll work on it some more.
Think the font needs changing.. and I could add some effects. Let me know..
By the way - there is a game with the title "Star Wolves".
There's a sequel too, but I think there's only a German version so I skipped that.

Star Wolves also happens to be  name of the group of 4 whatever you want to call them, that oppose Fox McCloud and his Arwing group in Starfox.
