I often find myself looking for chapter symbols and icons from the Warhammer 40.000 univers when drawing. So I decided to create a database of vector icons, to make this easy accessible for anyone.

I have started out with the Imperial Aquila and the chapter symbols of the loyalist Space marine chapters. I will try to add more as I go along.

For updates follow over at my tumblr


SVG is a great standard for vector graphics, making it easy for you to scale the icons up and down to your need. They a Illustrator and Photoshop friendly, or any other program you might need.

Find them on the Warhammer 40K icon page

If you have any nice svg’s lying around you would like me to add, leave a comment and let us see what we can make happen. The idea here is that more is better!



Of course all right to symbols and names belongs to Games Workshop.

  1. thankyou sir, you are a legend. Ive tried making an svg from images but found it a bit of a nightmare as I also wanted one without the laurel wreaths and mini skull at the bottom so I can make small images to cut out on my cricut and paste around some custom scenery im making

  2. I have some questions regarding the use of these symbols if you could please email me back that would be great thanks

  3. Your work is amazing!

    I’d love to see the Icons of the branches of the Adeptus Mechanicus

    Like the Skitarii, Ordo Reductor or Auxilia Myrmidon

    Keep beeing awesome πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Matt,
      Glad to hear you found useful πŸ™‚

      It a pretty cool symbol you link to. I will give it a go sometime in the coming weeks.

  4. These are great! I’ve used a few as part of some 3d printing projects I’m working on.

    Is there any chance we could get an Adeptus Astra Telepathica one?

  5. Sir, Could you create the kill team logo with the skull and knife in svg? I am planning to create a printable Command point/Victory point marker and I would use that as a logo for that one.

  6. Can’t edit comments…. Awesome work and thanks. I am going to be using the Death Guard and Thousand Sons symbols to design and 3d print Kill Team objective markers. I will add other comment to the Thingiverse design once I am done so you can see you work put to use.

  7. Hello. I love your symbols. For the next symbols, to stay in the theme of the Adeptus Mechanicus, I propose you: Centurio Ordinatus, Collegia Titanica, Legio Cybernetica and Ordo Reductor. Good luck. You are the best πŸ™‚

  8. Thanks for an AWESOME resource!

    Dark Eldar
    Imperial Knights
    Pre-Heresy Death Guard
    Pre-Heresy Iron Warriors
    Pre-Heresy World Eaters
    Pre-Heresy Word Bearers
    Sons of Horus


    How do you want to be attributed for these, by the way? πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks for the suggestions, I’l add them to the list.

      A link back to this page, would be great. And if you make something awesome with the icons, feel free to post a link πŸ™‚

  9. I’m using some of the Icons in a system for playing Warhammer 30k with the Raltac Rules, where you have multiple tables representing battlefields, and players can (real time) move from table to table.

    Here’s a picture of the Map where I use the icons to represent the Army for the players: http://eax.dk/skitch/raltac_map_224918F6.png (Green arrow points to Erik, who was playing Thousand Suns)

    And here you can see how the icons are used for the Players View (Where they choose where they want to go on the map) – In this case it’s the Salamanders Icon:

  10. Hello, first, that’s a great page, thanks for sharing !
    If possible, I’d like a 30k logo for iron warriors (a different “robotic head” without the chaos star).

  11. Hello-
    This is a marvelous page and the .svg files are perfect for a laser engraver. Thank you.

    I do request the Evil sunz logo- if you can do the Mek version with a wrench in its mouth, even better!


    1. Hi Chris,
      Do you have a link to the Mek version, can’t seem to find something good.

      Else, I’ll try and look into the standard Ecil Sunz icon.

    1. Hi Peter,
      I tried to investigate, but sure exactly what you are looking for. Could you please post a link the an image with the icon you’re after?

        1. Hey,
          Thanks for doing the detective work on this – I’ll have a look in the coming days and upload the repository πŸ™‚

  12. Hi, just wanted to say how fantastically useful your vectors are. I’m putting together a sheet of symbols to print onto water transfer paper and I’ve used several of your icons for various different projects, including a homebrew heresy era astartes faction. I have a lot of extra space on the sheet though and an eldar army to paint. Would it be possible to get a Craftworld Mymeara vector, at all?
    You’re doing the Emperor’s work!

        1. Of course! I have a lot more not included to this set. How can I send you those (e-mail or here)? Do you use illustrator or do you prefer an svg file with all the symbols?

  13. those really are amazing! thanks a lot! how do you feel about adding the executioners’ double axe or the “sons of the phoenix” icon?

  14. Hi!!,

    Great work! Congratulations!

    My request is about pre-primarch/pre-heresy Legion icons, like Luna Wolves, War Hounds, Dusk Raiders,…

    Thanks in advance!

  15. Hi!!

    First of all, great work! Congratulations!

    My request is about more pre-primarch/pre-heresy Legion icons, Salamanders “Saturnine Ram”, War Hounds, Luna Wolves, …
    Thanks in advance!

  16. Is it possible to make a vector for Imperial knights to get the Imp knight head symbol, chaos imperial knight head, House Krast, House Raven, and Astral claws from the badab wars?

  17. How about “The Third Covenant” Blackshield Warband for a badge? seeing as you already have the Ashen Claws badge.

  18. You really have a lot of icons by now!
    Rather than adding more, I think dividing the icons into a number of groups would be rather useful.
    Some categories could be:
    pre-heresy legions, post-heresy revised legions, second founding chapters
    imperial orders (xenos, malleus, …)
    races (dark eldar, ork, tau, imperial aquila, …)
    chaos gods, eldar gods, craftworlds

    I would be interested to see the symbols for Cegorach, Isha and Asuryan, but mostly because I haven’t been able to find them myself…

    (Also, you have misspelled “Space Wolves” as “Space Wolfs”.)

    1. Hi Emil,

      Thanks for your feedback.
      It’s on the To Do list with groups.

      As for Cegorach, Isha and Asuryan I’m not sure they exist as simplified icons. I’ll put them on the list, maybe I can come up with something as some point.

  19. Such an awesome resource! Thank you for doing this!

    If you get around to Death Eagles it would be fantastic. There isn’t a good black and white version around.

      1. Hi, farvig,
        Before heresy, World eaters were Dogs of War. When Emperor found Angron they have become eaters Worlds and received the symbol of, which have them now.

          1. Hi farvig,
            Can you please make the symbol of the Word Bearers first, and then the Dogs of War? Very urgent.

  20. Hi farvig,
    As the commander stribley team “Imperium” thank you on behalf of the entire team.
    I hope for further cooperation.
    Make a symbol of the High Lords of Terra.

  21. Hi farvig,
    I would like to ask for the symbols of the Sisters of Silence and the temples of Vindicar, Callidus, Eversor and Culexus.

  22. Hi there, great job on the icons so far, very impressive. If you are still adding more to the roster I was noticing a lack of Armageddon Steel Legion lightning insignia. This symbol could also double as an icon for a Chimera transport/armored fist squad in the army builder.

    Keep up the good work.

  23. I’m getting engraved ornaments made for my husband and group of friends who play 40K! You have no idea how much time you just saved me! haha. I’m a designer as well, and I was about to do all of this for their symbols. Bless you, sir….you have saved me much stress. These are fantastic! Cheers!

  24. Amazing work! I really love this collection.
    I am in the middle of trying to design a cap badge for my non-Cadian Astra Militarum regiment, and this has been a huge help.

    May I suggest crossed lasguns? It would be amazing if there were Krieg style (Lucius) as well as the regular Cadian ones.


  25. Any advices for creating a decal sheet and how to scale down the graphic without losing quality?! Havent found a Celestial Lions decal sheet and your *.SVG is the best there is! Anyway, thank you!

  26. Do you think it would be possible for you to make the Tyrant’s Claw symbol?

    Regardless, keep up the awesome work!

  27. Hi man loving your stuff would you also be able to do the other 2 Sisters orders please? Order of the Ebon Chalice and Order of the Argent Shroud

  28. First up, these are fantastic, very helpful for my Dark Heresy game. Second, any chance for Ork clans? Goffs, Evil Sunz, Bad Moons, Snakebites, Blood Axes, Deathskulls? Maybe even Freebootas or Kult of Speed if possible.
