Gamesworkshop Imperial Fist Shoulderpad Fitting Question

Recommended Posts

Aloha from Hawaii all!

 

Well I couldn't stay away from the hobby long and will be starting up a Imperial Fist chapter to play here.

 

I was looking to get the proper chapter insignia for the shoulder pads on my normal power armor marines (since Terminator pads are available readily on ForgeWorld.) However I'm not a fan of the particular ones on GWs website as of now (with the studs). I ran across an old set of metals and was curious how these fit on the newer plastics? I've heard some people complain that they are too small. Is this noticeable? Any insight or possibly other options would be GREATLY appreciated.

 

I do know for example that Chapterhouse made a set but unfortunately they are embroiled in their lawsuit with GW so their webstore is down right now.

 

Provided is a link to the old production metal GW shoulderpads that I was looking at so far. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Warhammer-40K-Marine-Imperial-Fist-Shoulder-Pad-Lot-1-x10-/390953683871

The GW metals are terrible on newer plastics.

Check these out and possibly other stuff on the site:

I've had great experience with the Nightlords Metal going on the plastic.  You know, outside the obnoxious ears.   :ohmy:

 

They also switched it over to Resin.  I thought they had with the entire line, is this not the case?

This pack contains ten Crimson Fists Shoulder Pads - a finely detailed resin cast set.

Looks likes some are resin, and some are still metal.

It's also a bit less obvious with Chaos Models, since there's more variation on there anyhow. I have some of the old metal shoulderpads on some of my Word Bearers, and yeah, they're a little smaller, but there's so much irregularity on the models anyhow that it doesn't really stand out the way it would on more uniform Imperials.
