If you look at WHFB symbols, Dark Elves often display on their shields and banners images with pierced hearts, or grasped hearts dripping blood (hearts are offered to Khaine in cauldron of bloods by the Witch Elves, and the knife is a nod to the Assassins).
The Orc red sun/face logo is a common icon on Orc shields and banners as well.

Ok, mea culpa Smile

What do you think are good themes/attributes for Underworld then?

There is no UW army in WHFB, so we have to invent something, I suggested
the green warpstone (this: https://fumbbl.com/i/572042) with a Troll face on top and a Night Goblin and a Skaven face on left and right.
Otherwise, to use more abstract symbols, Night Goblins' typical symbol is a yellow half moon (the Bad Moon) which is used as the normal Goblin logo while Skaven generally use a rusted metallic triangle.
The problem with using the moon and the triangle is it could generate confusion with the Goblin and Skaven teams, so I guess it's better to use the warpstone, the Troll face, the Night Goblin and Skaven face.
Maybe the warpstone could be contended by the Troll, Night Goblin and Skaven, I mean they could be grabbing it (angry faces would suggest the fight), and this could represent the Animosity of the team and the warpstone addiction as well.
No need to portray fully the Troll's, the Night Goblin's and the Skaven's bodies, I think that their faces plus a hand for each of them could work without cluttering too much the logo.

Not sure about that logo. Sorry Frylen. Loved your Bret effort though.

Here is the original Underworld Creepers helmet, which spawned the Underworld roster.

The original fluff read:

Quote:
This unlikely pot-pourri of Skaven and Goblins is a juggernaut of innovation in the field of dastardly tactics. If one of their ambitious plans backfires on the Gobbos (who usually get everything wrong, anyway) the Skaven just sit back and watch the stupid creatures hurt themselves - it appeals to their warped sense of humor.

Ok. I'm back.
I went with mrt1212s suggestion (or joke?) in page 1 of the thread.

First I mistook the ear for a leaf. I like the style though. and especially the warpstone.

In my mind, I imagine two troll fists, side by side, each squeezing a tiny goblin and a skaven until their eyes are about to pop. The trolls head/ears/eyes/nose are visible in the back ground, but his fists, and the dangling feet of the minions, obscure the rest.

I've free-hand sketched it once, by svg is well beyond me.

As described above, I think my old sketch of an idea has too much troll body, and not enough fist. Image

I dunno.. Is it just me or is it a bit too... cluttered?

I thought the ear was an anime elf eye with lashes.

No love for the Goblin snake?

Some nice logos here but remember they will look tiny on the match summaries - so personally I prefer the simple ones. If it's too complicated it all just gets very messy in a small image - one of those occasions where less is more. The lump of Warpstone for Underworld would be great!

I have a draft for a Goblin snake that I can PM you if you want to sneak peak(?). It is my final attempt.

What about the amulet with the swirl but minus the ear/ earing?

And for pact...have you ever seen a circle formed of hands grasping wrists/ forearms? So, a goblin arm grasping an elf arm grasping an orc arm grasping a skaven arm grasping the goblin, forming a diamond or square shape in all.
