when modeling your marines do you model them with the bolter, bolt pistole/ccw, or a mix of both. im just wondering because it says that they are equiped with both and i wanted to know for sanctioned tournments if they would be sticklers on thoes rules as for wysiwyg. so if the bolter is not on the model you can't claim that he has a bolter. this may be confusing but if any of you can help me out that would be great.
I'm just going to mix them up. It's standard kit so I don't consider it a WYSIWYG issue.

The "A Smart Player Will..." theory is a complete paradox. If we make an assumption that everything we do is outsmarted, then theoretically we can never win.
They generally hold a bolter and ccw, then a holster or something claims to have a pistol inside.
However, chaos marines straight out of the box are fine. No tourney can punish you for using the official models, even if they aren't exactly WYSIWYG.

If anyone wants any kind of help writing fluff for any kind of GW army just ask.
It's entirely up to you, and in fact, you don't have to rep any basic gear or weapons. Personally, I like having bolt pistol and c.c. weapon on my assault marines in rhinos (with the bolter sided at the belt), and then a bolter on chosen units that sit back and fire (and c.c. weapon and bolt pistol on belt)

Actually, it doesn't matter, because even if someone called WYSIWYG they can't do anything about it. The bolt pistol isn't an option, it's in their equipment profile. Even if they don't have a holster on their belt, they cannot not be armed with a bolter, bolt pistol and close combat weapon. It's not a voluntary thing like a power fist or a special weapon.
CSM have the bolter+BP+CWW combo regardless of how you model them, although it would be polite to mix and match a bit to represent the plethora of equipment. A bayonet can, in dire straits, be classified as a "close combat weapon." Hell, a pair of spiky brass knuckles are a close combat weapon.

I model my marines with bolters, one because I only have ccw and bolt pistol-users in the form of a unit of chosen to deploy my termies, and two, it is hard to explain why a unit of assault troops has a lascannon.
Asking for suggestions without knowing what you're planning on doing is like asking a blind man what color shirt matches your eyes.
