There are various ways to get badges made and to make them.
I make reproduction artefacts, mainly Roman and Mediaeval, in bronze, silver and gold and am just working on a couple of items to be finished in pewter.
The way I'd do this (not having cadcam) would be to make an original in wax, get it cast, clean up the resulting master then give it to a badge company to use for their moulding and casting.
Having the master would also mean that if folk wanted individualized badges they could be cast up in bronze silver or even gold rather than the white metal/pewter of the badge company. Instead of cold enamel it would be possible to niello the silver and bronze badges, far classier.

Although that mocked up 3D elder sign looks good - all those points are a grappling hook style accident waiting to happen, and it looks very expensive!

I prefer the simple 'tree' image on the round badge that Paul did.

Getting off the subject off Cthulhu - (though sticking to roleplaying) I think it would advantagous if the larger roleplaying community had a badge - (the image of a polyhedral perhaps) in order that we could recognise each other.

I had the misfortune to find out that a classmate was a fellow roleplayer just as the class was splitting up for good.

Tabletop roleplaying I find as a subject difficult to discuss with non-roleplayers so I didn't mention it and neither did he.


Oh... I'd be all over that! I'd go for a silhouette of a d4, d6, and d10 arranged like a portrait... maybe a d20, but a silhouette of that might just look round

Wow, those are fantastic renders!

Apologies for current delays in reply. Our ISP has recently become 'Virgin Media' and we've had net connection issues since then. Our postal district is in a 'known affected area' - ho hum!

Lovely badge artwork Allicorn, we should look into those! I think for the (tree) Eldersign could be a cloisinne/metal enamel badge, small, discrete - those who know, will see... I've been in touch with some of th kind people offering here too.

I like four-circle abstracted one, the one Allicorn used in the mock-up. (The leftmost one in the original post.) It looks to me like an eye peering out of a congeries of spheres. Hmmm...

As far as the tree Elder Sign cloissone goes, I know from experience that jewelry with "branches" annoyingly catches on clothes (making pulls in sweaters), people (ouch!), and random immovable objects (now where'd my prized and expensive pin go?). There's a reason most buttons are circles.

I found these links about British badge making companies and products...

(100 x 25mm badges for £20.)
http://www.badgesagogo.com/

Badge Making Machine (around £40.)
http://www.partybadges.com/badges.asp
http://www.londonemb...uk/bprodbam.htm



I'm really tempted by the top link. I'd think I'd have (daydreaming here)
Goblins Ate My Polyhedrals! (encircling the central image of a d20) and
the Elder Sign (Tree form - no words)

Here you go:

Elder Sign Cloisonne Badge at Lovecraftiana.

Due to the way shipping works, bulk buys or tagging on to other purchases work best!
