A bolt gun is a two handed weapon? Storm bolster?..

Is it possible to carry both a bolt gun and a chainsword? Storm bolster and powersword?

Do you have to take lightning claws as a pair?

You can even carry two two handed weapons. You just cannot use both at the same time. You could carry a combi-Plasma and a Combi Melta if you REALLY wanted to but you couldn't fire them at the same time. However if you have two pistols then you gain the skill 'gunslinger' and can fire both in the shooting phase.

In terms of close combat weapons. Again, you can have two two handed weapons such as a Relic blade and a Boltgun. But you can never gain the +1 Attack in combat if you have a two handed close combat weapon - such as a relic blade.

Lightning claws, powerfists, chainfists and other such weapons are classed as 'Specialist weapons'. Basically this means that you only get the +1 Attack for two weapons if you have another Specialist weapon. You can have them on their own (such as a Lightning claw and a Bolt pistol/Boltgun/Combi-Bolter) but you'll never get +1 Attack. If you had a Chainfist and the Teeth of Terra you would gain +1 Attack however as they are both Specialist weapons.

When you look at the wargear section it usually says "Replace Bolt pistol and/or close combat weapon with the following". This means that you could end up with a Power Sword and Bolt pistol. Power Sword and close combat weapon or two power swords (as you can replace both)
