May I suggest something like a fang-shaped cut in a corner of the banner? Something like a hint to reptiles.
The general feeling of the banner is great, anyway, so I'm not asking for a remake... just an add-on, as little as you fancy.

Had another play with the banner, to make it more lizardy.
I've added an extra layer of jungle so the pyramid appears to be rising out of the jungle. And added the silhouette of the lizardman.

I thought the first draft banners were fantastic. We don't need Godzilla (or the shadow of someone's dinosaur toy) trampling through your great artwork Very Happy

Agreed, but keep the second layer of jungle! Great work.

Ok another one to look at with a different silhouette this time. Also the S of Lustrian has been made to look like a snake.

All this inputs great to see... keep it coming and I'll try my best to make a banner most are happy with Very Happy

My hints:

1- The "s" looking like a snake is nice, but it doesn't have to look so much like a letter. Just write "L U T R I A" and then add some snake to make the S, or make the S less similar to the rest of the word.

As for the silhouette, I like the last one the best, but I think it could do just fine without it, if you make the snake of the S nice enough Smile

This silhouette is better than the earlier ones. I am still unsure that a Saurus Warrior with a sword/club is the right image though. If this was a WHFB tourney, then yes.

As it is a Bloodbowl tournament, a silhouette of a mage priest or someone holding a staff might be more appropriate. Teams are coming to play at the invitation of the mysterious mage priests, not coming to get their heads lopped off by crazed Saurus Warriors Smile Just what I think when I look at the silhouette anyway.

I think the extra layer of jungle foliage looks nice, but would make it more of an abandoned temple (where the jungle is growing back) than a currently used temple which would have cleared areas around so the Lizzies could congregate and watch the sacrifices etc at the top.

Still, great work and I appreciate you helping out on this Nick.

Markusen has been working on the icons. First draft is here. I have asked if he can make the yellow areas a bone/ivory colour and also to embelish the chest plate with a gem or glowing rune.
