I’m pretty sure this TrueType font designed in 1998 by the now-apparently-defunct “Dragon’s Den Type Foundry” was intended for players of Games Workshop’s Warhammer: 40K tabletop wargame.

But c’mon, seriously: what project wouldn’t be improved by a little faux-fascist heraldry? Perhaps a flying skull transfixed by a dagger and with lightning shooting from its eyes?

I can’t think of one either.
