I've been seeing a lot of folks use these "heavy" types of pauldrons lately; I believe they're originally Warhammer pieces?

Whatever they're from, I'd like to nominate a pauldron piece like that for BF... Perhaps functioning like the existing BF pauldrons (where they connect to a neck piece) but angled down with a straight bottom edge and wrapping around to cover the sides of the upper arm.

I want to buy some WarHammer 40K stuff but it would be nice if BF made one that could move and attach to the neck-armor/battle-armor.

A low pauldron greatly restricts arm movement - which is why we've never attempted to make one that attaches to our Neck Armor. However, a Pauldron that attaches to either the inside peg of a LEGO minifig arm or clip to the arm itself is more likely. However the former will prevent the arm from snapping in fully, leaving the latter solution as to the best. Ramus experimented with such awhile back but we didn't end up making them. I have my doubts as to how secure a piece would snap onto the arm - I'm wondering if simply making a new arm mold with such details is a better solution?

A new arm mold might work, maybe you could make a digital picture and see people's reactions.

Maybe it could be connected to a vambrace? like a full cover piece for arms (minifigures do not have elbow articulation, so this would not limit movement).
