I am looking to convert a Cypher-fallen angel model into a space marine captain. Originally I was just going to swap out his plasma pistol for a bolt pistol and call his two bolt pistols as operating a single mastercrafted bolt pistol (similar to SOB's seraphims' twin linked pistol deal.) But now mastercrafted weapons are no longer war gear that you can't just hand them out, so I'm thinking of changing the model's plasma pistol into something that I can call an auxilary grenade launcher.
I really want to keep the dual wielding look of the mini because I think its really cool, and I'm starting to like how the aux. grenade launcher works, but I have no idea how I should model it. Any suggestions that you can think of would be great.

How about a good ol' wrist mounted GL? bit plain but tht way you could imagine him hold his pistol with both hands, Die Hard style
but i cant think of much else other than that, other than actually giving him a GL pistol? lol
not much help i know :p

My main concepts for AGL's are either some sort of shoulder mounted mini-turret, a dedicated small weapon like the M79 or the Pallad D, or for characters with bigger guns, something traditional like the classic M203.
From the sound of it, you're probably looking at option B.
Shrikes jumppack has a built on smoke launcher that I use as a grenade Launcher (in 2nd edition that is what they were, grenade launchers that could fire smoke grenades.)
I think the best option is to remove the plasma pistol and see if you can give him a cut down grenade launcher (from the plastic Cadian sprue, or convert one to look like a single shot tube.
Or just leave the plasma pistol and tell people it is an aux grenade launcher, but that is just lazy and boring!

I currently play:
Doom Eagle Space Marines
Hive Fleet Omega Tyranids
Goff Ork Boyz(dead)
Tau of O'me
Inquisitorial Xeno Hunters
and my attempted foray into fantasy
'Dark Angel Green' Dark Elves in need of fluff
you could get an old fashion flintlocke pistol from the fantasy range and call it an ornate M79

My idea for this was to mount a scout bike's grenade launcher onto the backpack of the captain. Then make a small feed or some sofrt of way to show theres more than one grenade in there. It is small and a grenade launcher so... BAM! done. So if you pick up a scout bike to put in a squad and just use the bolters then you will have the grenade launcher spare to use on the marine.
