    CSM waist pouches - who can wear?

    Hi guys,

    I am getting to paint Black Legion, my first 40K army. So I am putting together a bunch of Chaos Marines and on the sprue there was a bunch of those little pouches you can attach to the waist, some of them have a pistol and a grenade, others a pocket and a grenade and maybe there's another one, whatever.

    My question is - in terms of gameplay, do these pouches have any meaning or they're just for decorative purposes? I read in the codex that the standard CSM weapon equipment is a Bolter, Boltgun, Frag/Krak grenades and close-combat weapon. If I add the pouch to the model, does it simply provide a visual representation of the grenades and pistol or do I actually need to apply something special (like a special weapon or extra Melta bombs or something) to the marine on paper to be allowed to attach these parts? I'm pretty sure it's the former, but just wanted to make sure and hear from ppl who have played the game for a while and know the rules.

    Thanks!

    They are only there for decorative purposes. I think they help to fill out the marines, making them look more massive.

    I would think who gets to wear the pouches is completely up to the CSM who owns the pouches. After all, I don't go around wearing other peoples' stuff without asking first.

    Yeah, these bits just help with the WYSIWYG of the grenades and pistols. I attached a couple per squad with the new plastics I got. They're not essential; they do add to the look of the models, however.
