Here are some pictures I've been working on. "Magellan" and "full" representations of Gael Ander, the Band of Bared Blades and the Covenant of Blade & Bow. Magellan actually shows the icons for units and factions if you put them in the Magellan/etc/images/icons/custom/factions/ and /units/ directories. You'd have to rename bbb.gif to gael.gif (both my faction and my main unit are called gaeL). Alliances aren't shown this way in Magellan (yet).
