Argent, on a Thor's Hammer purpure Othala, Wunjo, Algiz, Ingwaz in pale argent.


ROUGE SCARPE: Device returned for redraw to improve identifyability of Thor's Hammer. The Thor's Hammer is shaped as such that it's difficult to tell that's what the charge actually is. Normally I would pend for permission to redraw, but in this case, the lack of identifyability is a stylistic departure and therefore is something that I feel is best addressed by the submitter.
