When I buy meltabombs for the Seraphim do all models buy them?Even if they have,say,an Eviscerator?Just trying to scrimp on points.
You don't have to give every member in the squad Meltabombs. You may choose how many, if any at all.

If it says "any number of Seraphim/any model in the unit may be equipped with melta bombs for x points per model" then it means you can give out as many as you want. But if it states "the unit" or "the squad" anywhere in the sentence, as a general rule you have to give the lot of them the bombs - it's the same case in marines and CSM. Of course, you do not have to give them melta bombs at all unless it says "must be equipped with melta bombs" in the description.
They may be given melta bombs no matter what weapon they are carrying, assuming the description does not say "cannot be used when melta bombs are present". It is assumed they holster their weapon and rip a grenade off their belt, and do not require a hand to hold the grenade when it's not being used.

The only difference between tattooed people and non-tattooed people is that tattooed people are awesome and can kick your ass.

Hmm, now I am not so sure. After re-reading the Seraphim codex entry, it says "the squad" may be equipped with Meltabombs at +x points per model.
So, I think this means either all in the squad, or none. Of cource, the Vet. Sister can still take them from the armoury, though.
When purchasing grenades for the squad it's an all-or-nothing purchase. Either they all have them or none of them. Only squad leaders may be able to purchase them separately if they have access to the armory (purchased through the armory). Grenades may be more expensive when bought through the armory.
Grenades also do not have to be modeled according to the WYSIWYG rules.
I do not criticize. I do not offend. All I offer is my opinion which means only as much as you make it.
It seems foolish to get any meltabombs if the Vet already has an Eviscerator.
Don't forget that they all have free Kraks.
Whenever it says "May buy the squad X at Y points per model" you MUST give it to everyone.
But for seraphim, you are better off just giving 1 or 2 of them an inferno pistol. Does the same thing anyway and can shoot guys too.
