... the little point-eating stuff that's small and fiddly and may change between lists. Is it really necessary, for tournaments and the suchlike, to WYSIWYG his kind of stuff onto a model, or is just making your oppo aware that your squad leader has meltabombs/ targeters/ whatever beforehand enough?
Usually I just make my opponent aware of such things and they don't have a problem with it. If they did I would point to one of the random pouches, bandoleers or such and say its stuffed in there.

Killed a Revenant Titan in one shot.
Killed 900 pts worth of Blood Angels in 2 turns while only loosing 4 pts.
you could always have the wargear modeled and painted and blu-tac it to the model and remove/add wargear as needed.
May the "Nurgley Goodness" protect you!
Ya I ran into this once with the Book of Saint Lucus..
I told the guy it was under my Battle Sisters cloak...he could look for it if he wanted to but he'd look like a perv

"YOUR JUSTICAR HAS NO MELTABOMBS!"
"Yes he does, why do you think his cod-piece has that bulge?"
I know in friendly games it doesn't matter; in friendly games I can use a Tonka Truck as a Space Marine. Or a Space Marine as some sort of tree. It'd be weird, but I could do it if my opponent agreed. Does anyone know if that's the Official Trademark Tournament Organising Canon-Of-Stone ruling on such items, though? Not that I'm considering entering tournaments or anything, I'd just like to know that if I did I wouldn't have to sit and paint meltabombs
Melta bombs ought to be modeled on a tournament army. The bits are there to do it. I have Book of St Lucius modeled on my Sisters of Battle. It really didn't take much effort and it adds some unique touches to the army.
What about an auspex/ targeter?
Again it's really down to the fact that there is a GW-supplied piece of plastic which represents these things. The auspex is a very obvious hand-held piece of wargear and IMHO should definitely be modelled on the miniature in a tournament scenario. Likewise the telescopic sight should also be included on the model for the same scenario.
Grenades have never had to be modelled on a mini, but I would agree with InquisitorAffe that Meltabombs should be. They are represented by a reasonably-sized piece of plastic and it helps avoid any arguments in tournament situations.
Basically Tournaments require that if a piece of wargear or vehicle upgrade is available from parts supplied with the models (with the exception of assault/defence grenades but not meltabombs) then it should be modelled on the miniature. Sometimes Tournament organisers can insist that if something is modelled on your miniature, then that piece of wargear is deemed to be part of your model regardless of whether you wanted it or not, and your points cost must reflect its inclusion. I've only been to one Tournament where this was enforced, thankfully. The number of Sensor Spines I had to remove from my Tau vehicles was painful.
"Tau Commandment #226: Participants who use Velocity Trackers in the Tau Clay Pigeon Tournament will be disqualified"
I tend to model my mini's with all the options so power fist sarg has everything, power sword sarge has everything easy to say he hasn't got it then argue he has got it.
Yes tournaments are WYSIWYG, although with some simple explaining at the start of you game can be acceptable but say everything that isn't model and what he has.
In a tourny nothing worse then charging into a squad of normal guys, only to find theres a power claw/fist or something in there when its not on model/ it happened to my commander (was insta killed).......
