1) The chief is azure on a sable field. This violates RfS VIII.2,
requiring Armorial Contrast. Or, in English ... You have a color (blue)
as a chief on top of a color (black) for the field. Not permitted. On
a color (blue, black, red, green, purple) you need to put a metal
(yellow/gold, white/silver). Assuming you want the black field, you
will need to change the chief to either yellow or white.
2) The boars heads are different sizes. This will run afoul of RfS
VIII.1.b, Armorial Balance. In a group of charges, all will need to be
the same size.
3) The swords on the chief. It looks like the intent is for the swords
to be green, although the hilts have a lot of white. Assuming it is
green, we are back to that color on color thing again. Of course, since
the chiefs color will need to be changed, this problem could go away.
4) The swords, again. Three swords on a chief may cause problems with
identifiability (RfS VIII.3). Trying to squeeze in three swords could
result in the individual swords being too small to be readily identified
as swords. Unlike the previous three issues, this is open to the
interpretation of the reviewer.
