Well, I could have sworn there were posts about this before, did some searches, checked the FAQ and came up empty. Strange. So, here's my question - how are people modeling their bolters/bolt pistols/chainsword combinations? There were a few people who mentioned putting all 3 weapons on their models, but is this necessary? Seems like a model doing that would be "cluttered" and I'd rather not.
Would it be acceptable to represent ultragrit by building squads where individual models only had one set of weapons, but the squad as a whole had a mixture of bolter equipped models and ccw/pistol equipped models? This is what I'd prefer to do.
How else are people modeling this? or is WYSIWYG being ignored?
Grimmtu, any weapon or ability that comes standard on a miniature doesn't *have* to be modeled. Most players represent either a bolter or pistol/c.c. configuration, even though chaos marines now come with all three.

I don't know about Ultra Grit, but I always understood that True Grit was implied. The Grey Hunters (which have True Grit) box set doesn't include enough gear for you to model a Bolter + CCW on each Grey Hunter. And because of that, I always felt that True Grit/Ultra Grit was implied, and i was told that WYSIWYG doesn't really apply to it.
@gywo copta: True grit means the model in question can handle his bolter as a bolt pistol
in close combat, and thus can get an extra attack if that model also has a close combat
weapon. However, because of the bulk of a bolter, said model doesn't get an extra attack
With what we call Ultra Grit (no trademark there from GW), you get one weapon that has
a range of 24", one weapon that has a range of 12", and one close combat weapon.
Meaning that if a Chaos Marine charges into close combat, he does get an extra attack for
charging per the normal rules AND get an extra attack for having two close combat weapons.
Innovation suffuses this hobby like a tea bag in the boiling water of play.
Ok, thanks guys. I know it was a lame question to begin with. I think I'll go with modeling squads with a mixture of BP/CCW and Bolters any ways.
