This is an ongoing project to create an exhaustive ordinary of Johann Siebmacher's Wappenbuch from 1605. I am working from the digitization of it available here. If you find any error, please let me know. As a work in progress, it will be updated as I have time.

All blazons are my own. Note that in some cases, shields with a helmet facing sinister have had their arms reversed as well (e.g., a bend is displayed as a bend sinister, the tinctures of the field reversed, etc. So if you think you've found an error, double check the helm on top!) Each blazon is identified with the name of the owner as it appears in Siebmacher, with these conventions: I have transcribed vocalic v as u, and expanded , Gē:, and to en, genannt, and Von, respectively. The number in parentheses is the plate number on which the arms occur.

FIELD, DIVIDED - Per pale - Multicolor - and sable

Per pale checky Or and gules and sable, von Gamper (179).

Per pale per fess embattled argent and gules and sable, in sinister a fess argent, die Dosten von Erelbach (164), von Weichslitz (164).

Quarterly 1st and 4th per pale sable and barry argent and sable, in dexter a unicorn argent, 2nd and 3rd argent, two ragged staffs in saltire gules, die Rothen (117).

Quarterly 1st and 4th per pale sable and checky argent and sable, in dexter a fess argent, 2nd and 3rd per pale argent and gules, a crescent counterchanged, von Eckh (49).
