I would like to propose an award name and badge. The emblazon has
not been conflict checked because I don't know how (too many years
in name books), and I don't think Daniel has time to check it. I'll
throw it out to all of you to cuss and discuss.
I was trying to find an animal that was known for being a fighter,
and not something specific to one weapon used in Ansteorra. The
boar is a period charge, and according to Friar's A Dictionary of
Heraldry "The wild boar was much respected by huntsmen for its
indomitable courage and fierceness..." Page 63.
I propose the Sable Boar of Ansteorra.
Per Pale Argent and Or a boar statant sable.
The Glossary of Terms, Default Postures dosen't mention the boar
that I can find so help is need on the blazon.
