Default Bolt pistol's and chainswords.

In my Commander's command squad I have included nine marines and a seargent all carrying bolt pistols and chain swords. The tactical marines box does not give either of these parts what do I do?

Buy a box of Space Wolf Blood claws.

It's 10 Tactical Marine bodies with 10 Chainsword/bolt pistol arms and one Space Wolf Accesorie sprue.

The accesorie sprue has a lot of Space Wolf bitz, and a Power sword, power axe, power fist and melta gun.

Instead of buying hte blood claws just buy the bitz from GW or Ebay. Usually $2 from GW and you can get better deals on Ebay

That works if you already have the marines and like to wait for things to come in. If you dont already have the marines just buy a box of blood claws. Best way to get your hands on extra bolt pistols and chainswords.

Actually a box of blood claws is about ~$40.00 CDN.

1 Set of bolt pistol/chainsword arms is ~$2.25 CDN, so 10 sets is ~$22.50 CDN.

At that price you may as well just buy the bloodclaws and add more marines to your army.

You must be shrooming! No offence but, it pays off big time by just bying the blood claws pack.
Buying single sprues will cost 12,5 pounds for 10 bp/cs sprues, plus shipping. For 5,5 pounds more, and buying it in your local gamestore to avoid shipping, you get the SW accessory sprue, and bodies for 10 marines. It is obvious what pays off.
I went with the blood claws when I needed my swords and pistols.

(hmm...seems Owlman beat me to it...)

plus, the blood claws box gives you a meltagun, power fist, power sword and power axe.

but you could buy a black templar box instead maybe?

I don't know where you guys are buying your stuff but I buy my bitz off Ebay from people that don't want them. Here is a link for 10 bolt pistol arms for $2.99 and 10 chain sword bits for $2.99

http://cgi.ebay.com/Assault-Bolt-Pis...QQcmdZViewItem

and...

http://cgi.ebay.com/Assault-Chainswo...QQcmdZViewItem

So for $10 you get all the bits you need; how is that more expensive then buying a box of blood claws?

They were talking about bits ordering from games workshop which you can do. I almost never trust ebay as if its too good to be true it often is. Ebay is a tricky thing to work with and risky, your never quite sure what your going to get.
