Omega in Blackmoor LET

I have never designed type, but for the project that I am working on, I want to design a capital 'Ω' in Blackmoor LET, which does not have an 'Ω' as part of its character set. I thought to combine the capital 'O' and lower-case 'g' to make an 'Ω'. This is what I've come up with so far.

This will be used for a logo treatment for a youth group called "Omega Student Ministries." I like the sort of tattooed / distressed look that Blackmoor has. I am a bit worried, however, that it could have too much of a "Pirates of the Carribean" feel to it, however. If someone would like to suggest another font, then please do.

Thank you in advance for any suggestions you may have.

Edited for grammar.

I think because it is for a logo you can afford a little creative license with the shapes. I think it is fun. Perhaps you could tighten the closure a bit more?

Thanks for the encouragement! Here is the new glyph with your suggestion, Miss Tiffany, and a little tweaking:

And the form integrated into the logo:

Hi Nick,

Yes. That is more Omega-like.

I wonder if the wings aren't a little too detailed? Do you need all the small noise nearer to the omega? I also think the word "omega" is too close. Maybe even raise the Omega up.

I'm still in process with refining the logo, although your comments are all well taken. Thanks! I guess I thought it would be more complex than it turned out to be.
