Default Scions of Mars connundrum

okay heres the situation....

a couple weeks ago, i bought the DA master (with the huge sword) thinking, dude, this can be an awsome master for any chapter. so i painted him up. i run a high CC chapter so, power swords make sense, right?
last week a saw how devastating a techmarine could be in CC when he is given scions of mars(SOM).
so heres the problem....
i realllllllllllllly want to take scions of mars to get such a powerful CC "comander", but SOM says i could not take commanders, so that would be a waste of $15. so.... should i take SOM and dump the comander, or just take the Techie as an elite?

also, could some one explain the amount of attacks he gets with a full harness? the whole different CC weapons is very confusing...

Just take techmarines as an elites. They are an Independant Character in the marine codex unless accompanied by servitors and can add some great punch to squads in cc though they aren't the cheapest of units.

Turn the commander with huge sword into a techmarine is the obvious option >

Alternatively paint him blue and use him as a librarian.

A techmarine with full servo harness gets a number of attacks equal to what is on his profile +1 for an additional close combat weapon (plasma cutter). He may chose to make these attacks with his power weapon.
All these attacks are made at his normal initiative.

At intiative 1 he then makes a further 2 powerfist attacks, one with each servo arm.

The Techmarine always confused me with his many varieties of attacks. I would suggest using him in small games with a retinue of HB toting Servitors. He can pretty much take on anything.
