Hi folks,

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.

Alrightythen -
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.
