How do you model Ultra-Grit?
Half the squad with bolters and the other half with BP's + CCW's
The whole squad with bolters? And some bolt pistol holsters?
The whole squad with BP'S + CWW's and some bolters in holsters?
I model some CSMs with bolters, and some with pistols and close combat weapons. I don't do a 50/50 ratio, though; I tend to stick to 2 ccw marines for every 3 bolter marines.
Try this thread, which is asking virtually the same question, but about Plague Marines:
Spambot kill tally. . .337
There is no requirement to model basic wargear. As the combination of stuff that a chaos marine carries is referred to as ultra grit, you don't have to worry about modeling all the various bits.
Only the special/heavy/power/etc... weapons need to conform to the WYSIWYG rule.
Any of the combinations you listed would count. Heck -- you could have a bunch of marines with no guns and they would still count as having the basic wargear...
Personally I love this - I have many marines with Bolt pistols and close combat weapons, probably more than plain bolters, because it looks cooler. (IMO) They still count as having the Bolter.
Long story short, don't worry about it. Model the special weapons. Make the rest look cool.
I have some of mine modled with two pistols held outwards looks cool ^.^
Change is good
I've built custom bolters out of half pistols and half bolters, the pistols have longer barrels and custom built ccw that are smaller than normal, like a knuckle duster/knife.
