Can someone confirm this?

When I was attending league last week, I was wandering around checking the paint jobs on fielded armies and overheard someone saying that in a prior edition of the codex (I think he said 2nd), purity seals actually had rules. Is this true, or was the guy just spreading BS?

I know back in 3rd edition you could buy purity seals, don't recall what they did, at least I'm sure you could

Well I've had a look trough the Deathwatch RPG manual and while they do mention purity seals there aren't any rules pertaining to them for bonuses or anything. You'd think if they did have some use it would be in Deathwatch as they go into much greater detail of weapons and wargear.

Looks like they are just for show, ironically just like the pelts of the mammalian homonym.

Purity Seals used to allow a further D6 rolled to fall back and you took whatever two dice you wanted.

Black Templar still have Crusader Seals that allow them re-roll the dice for their Righteous Zeal move.

Strange, but not a Stranger.

DeathKlokk has is, they weren't a very big used upgrade, but they were there. I put them on veterans to show they've been around a while and been given awards or things like that during their long life. Also if you have a paint scheme that's a bit dull or monochromatic they can bring a little color to your model or just break things up a little bit.

I used them on Seraphim, as they used to have a rule to leave assault by falling back. So you could go in any direction, even toward the enemy and the purity seals let you go further, potentially. They were cheap points-wise also, you only needed them on the sergeant I believe.

Me: "I don't think invested is the right word."
