Welcome to Librarium Online!
I know that I've missed a few white dwarves lately so I wondered if u could help me. The Space Marine command squad have never been able to field close combat weapons, so you always have to buy a veteran squad instead and have the character join that. Have this been updated lately or will it in a forthcoming edition of SM? I mean.... the command squad?! :blink:
Yes, that's true, Command Squads cannot have bp/ccw.
The Command Squad is a specialist fromation, so it should be able to do anything reasonably well, and it can do anything.
The only ones that can do this are SW, RG, and BA, but they're funky chapters so no-one cares
If you want an uber-HtH-squad of death, look elsewhere

or be blood angels, and get an honor guard with terminator honors and power weapons.
Back from a long adventure.
you can freely upgrade three members to special characters (mini characters at any rate) these can swap their weapons for wargear as they want. these along with a sergent and leader make a nasty vanilla command squad. the battle reports in wd do it so it is legitimate to do. i use vet and commander with power weapons and two more power and 1 powerfist all with bolt pistols. to top off the squad i upgrade a couple more for flamers and pile em in a rhino makes a nasty close combat squad.
