    Deathwatch Shoulder Pads - what's the consensus?

    I've got a few blingy shoulder pads left. They don't have chapter emblems on them, so they'll be used for right shoulders only. Now I can either distribute them among my Ultramarines or save them for my Deathwatch.

    So what's the consensus after 3 years of 7th edition on the right shoulder pads of Deathwatch Marines?

    Do they use the right pads of their old suits of armor?
    Do they move the left pad to the right?
    Do they get a new pad with their chapter emblem?

    Deathwatch pads go on the left, Chapter on the right. That's how they do it, so that's how it goes. That and that's how the pads are modelled.

    Maybe I should have been more precise - I'm interested in the fluffy background.
    Where does the right pad come from?

    Is it the right pad of the Marines old suit of armor?
    Is it the left pad of the old suit, transferred to the right side?
    Is it a new one?

    all but the deathwatch shoulder pad is the armour they had in their chapter, simply repainted (Generally all but one arm or one shoulder pad depending on the chapters traditions)

    they then keep the deathwatch pad after.

    That's exactly what I'm hoping for. But I've read different information all over the place. Where did you get yours?

    I've never read any other fluff in the books, codices, games, etc that deviates from the above. That I've seen....you get invited, you take your gear, you then let them augment it, keeping your heraldry shoulder...and they typically give you a DW specific weapon

    Since that is exactly what I wanted to hear, I'm glad - my Kill Team will have some Cruces Terminatae among them.
