I haven't gotten to see the new codex yet, it won't be released here for a couple weeks yet, but I wondered if a Capt in terminator armor can be given a storm bolter and a relic blade to match the model?
Also, does Terminator armor still give a Terminator Honors bonus, or is it all factored into the basic profile now?
No Termie honours at all, can't tell if it is incorporated as well, it is a new statline altogether.
And also no, only Lightning Claws, Power Fist/Storm Shield and Thunder Hammer/Chainfist can be taken if you take Termie armour and a Storm Bolter, relic blades cannot be taken in Termie armour.
Yeah, your Storm Bolter is safe, but it's either the basic Power Weapon or the same fancy stuff as before (PF, LC's, TH, etc...). Cool new stuff like Digital Weapons, Relic Blades, Hellfire Rounds and the very fascinating Auxiliary Grenade Launcher appear to be for Power and Artificer armour only, sadly.
And Honours is definitely dead and gone, but I'd say it's built into the new statlines - all the elite troopers and sergeants appear to have the boosted leadership and attacks that honours would have bought.
To continue the Termie Honours thing, i should note that those elite squads (vanguard veterans, honour guard, etc - some of which are not elite choices!) suffer a cost increase to account for the "hidden termie honours", typically between 5 and 10 points - a noted drop in cost compared to termie honours in 4th!
