Writing an army list recently got me thinking about the importance i place on my officers. Generally i don't give them any equipment (only the iron disipline upgrade). Is this just me or do other people not equip their officers well? So having said that i was wondering what the people who equip their officers give them.
Thanks in advance.
Iron Discipline and a bolter or, a bolt pistol and cc weapon. That's all I give my officers. Back in the day, I used to give them targeters too, but now those aren't in the armory anymore. I guess that adeptus mechanicus decided that it was an unfair advantage for IG players.
If there near the front line a bolt pistol and a power weapon, if not then a storm bolter.

I am the opposite of hourglass, I love a tooled out command squad. medics, commissars, standard bearers and power thingies and really-white-hot pistols run riot in my HQ. my other command squad is a different story, just a mortar and a boltgun.
... only triumph could turn pooing his pants into a good thing..
I love a tooled out command squad as well but I think Hourglass is right about that being ineffective point spending. However, in my main hq I almost always stick a mortar in just so they get to shoot the whole game without being in anyone's LOS. In games where I don't care about winning I will usually throw in my favorite commissar with his power fist and ccw along with a meltagun. It's wiped out many a deepstriker but it's also very expensive.
Karnov let all of us fulfil our repressed dreams of being a fat Russian man running around in the great outdoors and getting shot at by weird stone heads and crap. You didn't have a repressed fantasy about doing such marvelous things? Well, I don't believe you . . . [djpretzel]
Iron Discipline, a power weapon and possibly a bolt pistol at the maximum. Any other kind of extras will only earn back their points in maybe 5% of your games.
After almost a decade of playing the IG one of the most important lessons i have learned is that IG characters are useless aside from leadership bonuses.
IG since '95.
Bolt pistol, power sword, 2 meltas for platoon hq
Company hq : i add senior officer, standard, and if i have spare points a master crafted plasma pistol.
Storm Bolters (all my Vet Sgt.s included), and usually an Honorifica Imperialis on my Command HQ's Jr. Officer.
I am the Aquila-Guerilla!
My Hq officers Consist of the following:
Over all Officer
1 heroic Senior Officer
w/ Plasma Pistol and Power Sword and refractor field
Junior Officer; Power Fist and Bolt pistol Conversion
Junior Officer; CC Weapon and Bolt Pistol : :huh:
I put a mortar in my main command squad. I also use laspistols and close combat weapons for my officers. Yeah, why waste points, you don't want them in combat anyhow!
