I was told that having 4 wolf guard, and a WGBL with an assortment of hand held weapons (WGBL had a frost blade, WG had 1 thunder hammer, 1 Lightning claw, 2 of the wg had power fists) and each model in the hq bike squad also had a storm shield. is having a storm shield and 1 close combat weapon only something white scars bikers can do, or can any chapter, including wolves, do this with their hq squad?
I think the storm shield was explained in the regular space marine codex. Unfortuanatly I don't have mine with me (left it at a friends house). So I guess all I can say is that I think it is in there somewhere.
They may TAKE all the weapons normally allowed. However, they may only USE one single handed weapon at a time. So they could use the Storm Shield or the thunder hammer, but not both on the same phase. Also, with a powerfist on one hand, they may not use that hand for any other weapon, so they're pretty much stuck with using the powerfist only.
