Given how small the images are likely to be on the HUD, I'd go with a simple human outline, more like what you see on bathroom doors:

The putti are interesting, but simpler is probably better.

[...]But I feel pretty confident in saying we're not interested in infants[...]
lol, wasn't that difficult, was it : )

i was thinking of this being displayed in the same area where i saw the exclamation mark icons for wounds in a 2.5 hud in physdat window (the one with soldier stats).
but now i think of it, maybe the size and location was a temporary solution, and i might have overdone with the size constraints.
Given how small the images are likely to be on the HUD, I'd go with a simple human outline, more like what you see on bathroom doors:[...]
actually i did already try a very similar thing (searched for icons), but the parallel limbs did not look very good when recolored.

all in all, i understand abstract is the way to go then, or maybe a soldier model from the game if it can be larger than 32x32.

edit: found some better ones, i think:

edit:
as a fully patched up soldier would look something like this:

then for anything more than just recolored, it might sense to use mummy pictures.

and a  preview of recolored abstract human that i think i rather like myself, with those not parallel limbs, and i think it is easily identifiable.
made the hands slightly longer than original, and i think i might also enlarge the head a bit.

Hello.

First, I want to apologize for necroposting.

Second, I'd like to point out that even though nearly a year has passed, no one bothered to make(or include) bleeding icons.

Third, I present you a set of icons i prepared today. They are 16x16 and follow current style of "exclamation mark" icon. I have separate hi-res sources for each, so rearranging them or adding to another image (like it's done in /base/pics/banks/pack_message.png) won't be a problem.

Archives with the images can be found here: icons, sources.
These images were created from scratch by myself, and I hereby release them into the public domain.
