 Those point costs go onto the table 6-2, Additional Standard Kit Items.

The pre-made regiments have chosen their Favored Weapons and still bought 30 points of gear.


My apologies to anyone I offend; FFG staff, playtesters, and forum users alike.

A regiment doesn't need to spend points simply to have Favoured Weapons. Indeed, all regiments have (chosen at regiment creation) a basic weapon that is considered Favoured, and likewise for a heavy weapon. You can spent kit points to give an example of the regiment's Favoured basic (and/or Favoured heavy) as standard kit for a squad. This will ensure the PCs have an example of said Favoured weapon regardless of what specialisations the players are playing, and fluff-wise might indicate that this particular regiment considers the Favoured weapon in question so important that they go the extra mile to ensure that every squad has one. Ordinarily, the only way to get access to Favoured weapons outside of requisitioning them is to play as a Weapon Specialist (who can select the regiments Favoured basic weapon as part of his specialist equippment) or a Heavy Gunner (who can do likewise with the regiment's Favoured heavy).

This man has the right of it.

Alright, alright. I'll bow to peer pressure.

One suggestion for your Storm Trooper build, switch out the regular Carapace armor for Stormtrooper Armor, it already includes a Micro-bead, at least if you go by the more detailed description of the (still Very Rare) Cadian-pattern “Kasrkin” Storm Trooper Carapace in Dark Heresy: Ascension. That way, you won't have to spend points on the microbead, leaving you with 5 points to spend on something else. My personal suggestion: a Grapnel & Line.

I'm having trouble imagining a situation in which you think to yourself: "Man, bringing this grapnel gun sure was a mistake."
