There is, as far as I can ascertain, no rule as to the breadth of the cotises, but had I read the blazon before I saw the emblazonment I would have been expecting something wider.

Nice design, very nicely rendered!

The red field, Chevon, magnolia blossoms and nautical crest are a nice example of the Scottish practice of indeterminate cadency, genarally alluding to the general pattern of most Scottish Duncans (as are those of our own JD of Sketraw) without being so closely similar as to suggest a proven genealogical connection. These are lovely!

The McNulty torse and mantling's tinctures are unconventional perhaps, but not unattractive.

There is unfortunately a spelling error in the McNulty emblazoned motto. Lupus et Fidelis means The Wolf and Faithful. The text of the blazon gives the correct Lupus est Fidelis.

I must take issue with the use of semé as a noun. The McNulty blazon says: Vert on a seme of Maltese Crosses Argent ..., but semé means strewn or sprinkled. So the correct blazon would be: Vert semé of Maltese Crosses Argent ... . (I cannot fathom why semé of is the conventional heraldic English rather than semé with, but it is.)

The Pashko arms have a a traditional feel to them except for the Loyalist Civic Coronet with its oak and maple leaves. This is not a crest coronet that I have come across before, though I suspect it is not uncommon in Canada. Mr Pashko lives in Massachusetts, so perhaps he likes to live dangerously!

I cannot fault Lee for emblazoning the coronet several hat-sizes larger than the helm over which it hovers. Heraldic artists have been doing the same with torses and coronets since time immemorial. Call me pedantic (go on, everyone else does!), but I side with those who advocate that the torse/coronet and crest should sit on the helm as they would have in reality, rather than being detached and "floating", out of scale with the helm.

Probably because the French is semé de. Personally, I would like to see heraldic English become more accepting of plain English terminology. We justify the technical language because it supposedly has more precise meanings, but "Green strewn with silver Maltese crosses" is just as clear as the conventional blazon. If we're going to start off with two French words and end with another, why not just go whole hog and write "Vert semé des croix maltaises d'argent"?

All by way of agreeing with Chris's final observation: I can't fathom why...but it is.

This and the corresponding "Loyalist military coronet" were invented by the Canadian Heraldic Authority as a distinction for the arms of descendants of people who left the newly independent United States during and in the immediate aftermath of the revolution because it turned out they'd put their chips on the losing side--I'm sorry, I mean because of their abiding allegiance to George III. I don't know if it would be categorized as common or uncommon, but there appear to be at least several dozen, maybe more, arms granted by the CHA that include it.
