    100 pts of Wargear for any Character in the game. This doesnt include Chaiswords, Lightning Claws etc. Anything else it does include.

    Things like: Terminator Armour, Bionics, Teleport Homers and so on.

    -Invic

    ....in fact I believe it might include weapons other than standard equipped.... ie. Vet Sarge has BP and Chainsword standard, if he gets a Powerfist I believe it counts to the limit.
    Current Armies:
    Ultramarines (4000pts)
    Current form: 4-1-0
    Win vs Orks (1000pts)
    Draw vs Orks (1000pts)
    Win vs Space Wolves (1000pts)

    Dark Eldar (1000pts)
    Current form: 3-0-1
    Loss vs Imperial Guard (1000pts)
    Win vs Chaos, Slaanesh (1000pts)
    Win vs Orks (1000pts)
    Win vs Space Wolves (1000pts)

    Wargear is only things taken from the "Wargear" section of the applicable armoury. If you bother to read the paragraph at the top of page 34 of the ID Codex it is all spelled out there.

    Most characters get 100 pts of "wargear".

    "wargear" being items selected from the wargear section of the armoury. weapons do not count against this limit, however you are only allowed 2 weapons (only 1 can be 2handed).

    However, some characters only have access to 50pts of wargear. But it's all told in each individual codex.

    for IG the only charactesr with 100pts are HSO and SO. all others (vetsgt, JO, enginseer, etc) only have 50pts.


    Choas Characters get 150pts but the extra 50 is basically chaos "gifts" IIRC.

    so the main thing is to check your codex to see what the point limit for your characters is.
