new banner?

I was thinking that the banner could use a bit of a revamp? Maybe it would make the page look a bit more modern if you know what i mean. I have something more high-res in mind... Smile

I like our banners. Show us an example of what you think is better.

Show us an example. I really have no problems with them now. The only way I'd vote for a change is if I saw something way better ;P

its not that the existing ones are bad, its that they are a tad grainy because of the texture behind them. I quite like the idea of it but I think that the quality of the stocks used can be improved but, hey, nothing's perfect ;). Smile I shall keep my eye open for more high quality stock images; I might even put a draft together if I manage to steal some time Blum 3

I do like the banner as his like the others said, but if you have something to propose, we will look at it for sure.

I thought of an idea: Maybe we could have a cool picture of some real SAS on one side of the banner and then us posing in the exact same way on the other side.

Here's some nice poses I've found by just searching "SAS" in Google Images:

It is quite nice Max! The only comment I have is I think it wouldnt fit very well on a black background. Maybe an other set of color?

Agreed, nice work! Same comment as Nick, also maybe try and add some SAS operators in the background (silhouettes maybe). No Photoshop experience here though so not sure how that would end up looking.

Hey Nick, i can colorize this, but i don't want use anythin' color settings, cause it's not good... Only texture and light direction. Smile I can do it with another metal textures.

West, what did u mean?!

Thx, guys.

Well the current colors are quite flashy for a black background. Thats what I mean. West is asking for some operators or some soldier on the banner a bit like you did for cohonlinegame.ru

K, Nick, now i end second ver for 70% and going to elections.
When end it and edit 1st, i upload it.
In first version if i add some peoples it will looks bad, cause background going in perspective. In 3rd and 4th versions i add some.
Have a lot of ideas. Biggrin

Love the way the banner has Australian TAG-E (East) in one of them! (2 Commando Regiment).

My idea of CQB is running in with a sword.

i like these very much and like the ideas. God knows it is hard to find good SAS stocks. A more grey/black/silver colour scheme would be cool. Here are a few colour combos on the interwebs:

Not gonna lie maxy, but that made my apparently large brain ache a bit...good job on that. Thanks for the little art-history lesson though, it does help to know who you are copying when you are using (badly) a particular style Wink
PS. I prefer the contrast in the 3rd one if we are voting Biggrin

Art history doesnt tend to work with web design too well. Just be aware of that

Good work Maxy, I'm digging that last one...

The darker tint would fit well with the current site design, and that UK flag in the background is a nice touch. Just a thought maybe center/enlarge the text.

Among the first 3 I think I also prefer the 2nd one.

Add these to the rotation perhaps? Smile

My preferred one is also the 2nd one. Blue tints fits better on black backgrounds

I like the top and bottom images, but the bottom one needs a winged dagger and the text is too subdued. I like the rvs and swat dog tags Wink
