That's actually an interesting way of adding the pauldrons to the minis. I've never seen it this way before. I'm quite curious how this will look once painted up! Also, a very heretic misuse of a Skitarii Vanguards head! ;-P

I understand why people do it (it makes a lot of converted arm poses easier), but I've gotta say, I'm not a big fan of the sideways pauldrons. It just makes the entire silhouette read as something other than a Space Marine. :shrug:

I always found it funny how wildly different people opinions are about the pauldrons. It’s not something I plan to do throughout the whole army. Just something to give this squad a unique flavor.
