how many attacks does a GM get....does he get his off hand weapon bonus...if so then how and with what weapons...and would a chaplin in terminator armor with a storm bolter get an off hand weapon bonus?

To answer your first question, please read the DH codex.Originally Posted by =][= Defib =][=
About the "off hand weapon bonus" it would depend on specific special rules as well as equipment.
The GK Grand Master will get the additional close combat attack, even with a Storm Bolter, because the GK's have True Grit (applicable with Storm Bolters for GK's only, as far as I know), however make sure you read the True Grit rules as other limitations apply.
The Chaplain in Terminator Armour (and other models similarly equipped) would not be able to claim the bonus of a Storm Bolter + CCW, as, even if they have True Grit, they wouldn't be able to use the special rule with a Storm Bolter - Bolters only, the Storm Bolter version is for Grey Knights only.
If I'm wrong, anybody may feel free to correct me. :yes: I'm not too familiar with DH and SM rules.
Just a minor addition, True Grit is not usable by Grey Knights (including the GM) who are wearing Terminator Armour.

Yeah, Power Armoured Grey Knights are the only units that can ever claim the bonus with a Storm Bolter. As per Corianis, models in Termie armour don't get it.
The only way to get the bonus attack is with a pair of one handed weapons (basically close combat weapons and pistols). For figures in Power armour, it's as simple as adding a Pistol, but for Terminators, your cheapest option is to add a Power Weapon, as Termies can't take pistols and such.
