So I'm new to 40k and just starting with Space Marines. I am putting together my first army list but I'm a bit confused. In my codex there is only one type of servitor you can attach to techmarines. However, on the GW website, when looking at the model catalog they list 3 types of Techmarine servitors- Tech, Gun, and Close Combat, with 3 seperate stat lines and gearing options. I've searched for an errata or update but can't seem to find anything. Where is the information for these different servitor types and their point costs? If anyone can help me out with this, I would greatly appreciate it.

I'm not sure where you're reading the descriptions of the servitors at. Generally, by the rules, you can outfit your servitor with a powerfist (the default option), or a heavy weapon for points (h.bolter, p.cannon, or multimelta). The powerfist (I'm honestly spacing what they're really called) servitors also give bonuses to when your techmarine wants to fix immobilized or weapon destroyed vehicles. Currently, GW sells everything except the plasma cannon servitor, though they have made one and you can find them easy enough if you look around for them.
The different servitor 'types' you're looking at are illustrations of the different gear options you can give them.
You only have one 'type' of servitor but they have wargear upgrade options, allowing you to tool them out for different combat rolls.
In the 41st millenium there is no such thing as paranoia, the universe realy is out to get you!
My sir, i fear you are looking at the old Daemonhunter inqusitorial henchemen squads. There you had Gun servitors and the like, i understand your confusion. The surest( and best buy atm) is the kit with the techmarine in servo armour and 4 servitors in finecast, beautifull cast that is.
