Just a quick question regarding the cadian armour. On there back they have a small raised lump which is kinda rectangular shape missing 1 corner. In all the picutes of models in the codex's etc this is left there and painted.... my question is what on earth isit supposed to be lol. Unless it has some use im severally tempted to just file it off.
The vox-sets rest on it, as do the backpacks that come with the Heavy Weapons teams.

ye i noticed this. so do heavy weapon teams backbacks etc. But does it serve any other purpose than a platform for glueing? seems strange to leave it on otherwise and ruins the look imo
They are there to help hold things to their backs, as has been said. I agree that they do look a bit strange, as they don't serve any purpose to the models, but I don't think they stand out too much. I can live with them...
Something about its useless I find interesting.
Like in the uplifting primer "You'll probably never use one, but these are some heavy weapons."
A weird teaser of things they can't have so low on the military ladder, even being denied the flamer canisters or a vox pack.
So in a weird way I like them.
Great question. It's right there but I never thought about it. I think it looks fine personally. You might as well file the rectangle off the back of their helmets while you are at it. We all know that stuff sits on it so I guess it's sort of a pals system for guardsmen in the year 40k.
