Default Ultramarines veteran shoulder pads

Ok guys, i was gonna pick up some of the above named shoulder pads. I don't know if you've seen them but they have both the ultramarine symbol, and the veteran symbol on the one shoulder pad. Now usually i would put the chapter symbol on the left pad, and squad symbol (eg tactical) on the right pad.

Now my question is.... Which side would this pad go on? Left or right?

And would it be the same for a Sergeant in the same squad who would be having one pad as a crux (to represent termie honours).

Thanks in advance!

According to Isignium Astartes, chapter symbols go on the left shoulder pad.

Squad markings go on the right.

So, left would be my choice.

As for the sergeant; It seems crux honours are mostly placed on the left pad also (look at the Terminators). But that pad would already have the Ultramarines logo. Thus I think you should keep the squad coherent and place the Crux on the right shoulder pad and the veteran logo on the left.

yep, they're the ones. I gotta say i agree with you. Although the crux on termies is opposite side to marines in power armour. I shoulda noticed that earlier, it should go on the right hand side lol. With the ultra badge on the left.

Pretty stupid question thinking about it now lol. Thanks anyway!
