Perhaps you can make some sort of constructive suggestion to improve them then?

These are looking good - I like them!

Here's my thoughts:

Volunteer; I dislike the 'pip', as I'm familiar with this indicating a more senior rank. Could this be a really thin bar?
Private; should still be a bent stripe v
Private first class; v + pip
Corporal; two stripes «
Corporal first class; two stripes + pip
Staff Sergeant; I'm not too keen on the red stripe; perhaps we could have a pip in the same place as the current Sgt 1st Class - and the new Sgt 1st Class as you've got it here.
Sgt 1st Class; the pip needs to be the same colour on the freemium version - as does the star on Sgt Major.
Warrant Officer; this icon looks out of place with the progression.
Major; this could be confused with a 'posh' private - perhaps introduce plain swords here? Or, Warrant Officer could be ¤; Lieutenant ¤¤; Captain ¤¤¤; Major ¤¤¤¤ (current Captain icon)
Lieutenant Colonel; Could be plain swords
Colonel; Swords & star (your Lt. Col.)
Brigadier; I'd make the coloured band slightly thinner, to be the same as Major General , or you could have swords here too??
Lieutenant General; Again, I'd make the coloured band slightly thinner.

Other comments:
We've forgotten about the Conqueror rank!
I thought we could add a scout between a cook and volunteer, with a fleur-de-lis icon?

Okay, a minor issue, but cooks are hardly the bottom rungs of the military any longer .. if they ever really were. (armies move on their stomaches, after all).

Why not change it to something truly on the bottom -- like "apprentice cadet" or some such.?

.. just a thought.

What about a TRULY bottom rung for those with under 200 points (you have to work to get that low). .. .something like "deadbeat", "traitor", "coward" ... even "latrine cleaner" ... etc.

yes but some of us lower ranks are not used to these high ranks and even if we have read the instructions (which i clearly have) its easy to forget whether a start with a flame behind is higher than a start with something else behind... get it?

I like the second set of ranks the best (from on the first page).

I'd say the last ranks look okay, but I don't like the dark shadows. Somehow they seem less shiny and more flat than the first couple sets.

Good idea! That would add a rather humorous touch :P

How about something like this... I've just played around with your image in paint...

I'm still not convinced by the Staff Sgt Icon :? and I'm not too sure about the gold stars on the freemium icons either...

I've added in a Lance Corporal and a Scout at the bottom, and changed the General Icon at the top, to have a conqueror icon too.

There is room for a rank between Colonel/Brigadier if necessary??

I prefer the current style of insignia. They have a 'classic' or 'real' look to them. The majority of the suggested insignia have an almost cartoon look to them.

New insignia could be designed by the introduction of an oak leaf cluster surrounding the existing insignia to denote one half rank up. (In the same way that current field marshall equals current Generals star + oak leaf cluster)
