This is a really cool idea!

I'm having trouble finding another description of it. This link is a discussion group for people interested in Irish history, the particular topic being (historical) Viking armor. They seem to think that only the Varangians, Vikings of the east, in present-day Russia down through present-day Turkey (Byzantium), commonly wore vambraces (and they don't say anything about putting symbols on them).

One of the posters on that discussion group provided this link, which people may also find interesting, about Viking armor:

But there's no reason why this can't be an Asgardian tradition!
