Could you give me some advices about the best wargear for captan?
I'm thinking about captan (Ultramarines) with relict blade, storm shield, artific armour and optional digital weapons, melta bombs, grenade luncher or upgreate to chapter master.
ps thanks for giving me advices

Just about the only time I'll take a Captain is if I need one for a bikers army, and even then I generally only give him a Relic Blade. Most of the other options are really only minor upgrades to stuff he already has, especially given the points costs for a lot of them.
if you need to take a captain then i find the relic blade and storm shield is best, actually i would rather have a captain to master as he is cheaper and i would rather use vulkan he'stan than a captain since he has a relic blade and the same invun save as a storm shield for better overall points cost.
I think it depends on how you are going to play are you going to get all your army into the thick of it and get them all into combat or are you planing on shooting. You just need to give him the wepons that best goes with the roll you want him to play in that game.
Captains can be built for any role. One of the biggest reasons to take them is for the command squad. I typical build my captain around the command squad I want him to join. I also try to keep him cheap but effective. My command squad is typically shooty, 4 plasma guns. Sense I don't plan to put them in assault I don't kit the captain out to be a close combat beast, that's the role of a different unit. I've tried power sword and plasma pistol, which is a nice budget option. Sometimes I'll give him a bolter with hellfire rounds and a relic blade for a slightly more expensive but still shooty option. Against some armies he is bound to see close combat so I still like to give him something to fight with.
Relic Blade, Bike, Hellfire Rounds. Anything else there are better options to take (Special Characters, Librarians, Chaplains, mostly, although a Master of the Forge is a necessity for Dreadnaught lists)

My opinion is go with what you think is cool, play for fun, my Blood Scythes Captain has a power weapon and inferno pistol, my howling griffons wip has thunder hammer and storm shield, because i think it looks mint!
