So I bought the space marine battleforce box to begin my career in the 40k game. And as I go to build my model I notice little ammo pouch things (the little rows of 3 and the 2 bigger ones that are side by side), along with purity seals, little pairs of two frag grenades, knives, and one of the things I bought has what looks like a bolt pistol in a holster. So my question is do these items cost points to but on my units or are they for looks? Thank you for your time in answering because right now I'm kinda halted in my building
Hey, I put the frag grenades and knives on mine, you don't pay for them.. also the post would probably go in the modelling forum, you would get more replys if you put it there too

Nobody expects the Imperial Inquisition!
Most marines have a bolt pistol standard, along with the frag and krak grenades. So you can opt to put the holstered one on their hip, when they are carrying a standard bolter in their arms. And the grenades you can strap to thier chest or belt. The knife can symbolize a CCW. They aren't really necessary as most of the items you are describing are 'standard wargear' they don't typically have to be modeled for WYSIWYG.
The ammo pouches and such are just for customization, and extra detail which does tend to make the models have a more complete feel to them.
All Marines come standard with bolt pistol, frags and kraks, so you don't need to pay extra for that.
Just be carefull to avoid confusion on the important items, like power weapons, fists, claws, combi-weapons and similar.
But in all cases, your model is your model. As long as your opponents know what they have as gear, you most of the times can go with a "count as" rule.
thank you guys now I can get back to making my army ^_^
