After having played a bit, I must say I like the Astartes Jump Pack. Somehow you always find yourself right smack in the middle of the action. Priceless.

Personally, I enjoy terminator armor. Very resilient allowing you to bring heavy firepower without fear of enemy retribution.

Signum + Link for ranged ganging up.

Stormbolter for "Bwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar"-olter Assault.

 

Going to try out:

Master Crafted Stormshield
Psychic Hood.

My fav piece of Wargear is something I can’t talk about due to NDA’s (), but my second fav piece of wargear is the Storm Bolter.

 

And until the errata came out the best piece of wargear was the Breaching Auger. That thing was nuts!! |

Right now my favorite piece of wargear is the Narthecium our Apothecary wears.

Like AK said that jump pack finds me right smack in the action, which means my wounds hovers around zero, a lot.

 Power Armor. It does so many things, and I often forget just how useful it is.

My bolter. An Imperial Fist never leaves home without it.

Stalker-pattern boltgun loaded with Kraken bolts. Not the most lethal combination, to be sure, but quite appealing to me for some reason.

Best gear simply but true: Power Armour! No other piece offers more benefits, except for your own Astartes-body!

You ain't a real marine if you got more than that on a regular basis. That's what Nartheciums, Fate Points, and -let's not forget- True Grit are for.

I would say the most important wargear I had to pay requisition every mission is the combi tool.
A bit expensive for standard equipment but non the less very important.

I use my Auspex constantly and miss my chainsword.  The powersword seems to lack the burtality (thematically) that should be meeted out to heretics.

Skapulan Bolter: DW Relic item. 2d10+9, bolter specialty from tactical makes it +11, 96-100 doesn't jam it, comes with master crafted combat knife on the end of it, has a fire selector that allows 3 different ammunition types to be in the gun at all times, stalker patter, accurate, and enemies that dodge automatically receive a -10 to dodge when fired upon. my black temp. tactical champion uses it with Recoil Suppression to fire 1 handed, with the combat shield and DW relic blade, its a must for any space marine that can afford such a wonderful Relic.

Where does it say that the Skapulan bolter is of Stalker pattern? Shoudn´t it have a much greater Range then?

You know that you need two hands to wield a Relic blade?

 

As a Ultramarine Tactial my most favourite piece of gear are the various special issue ammunition together with my Hesh-pattern bolter. For very few Req-points you get a deadly weapon for nearly all occasions. Against Tyranids for example  use a fire-selector (2 Req) with Metal Storm Rounds (15Req) und Hellfire Rounds (for free). The Hesh-bolter even comes with motion predictor, preysense sight, the accurate and reliable qualities for free.

In the picture it has a scope on it, i assumed that made it a stalker pattern, has a range of 120M. I made the relic blade balanced from a our iron hand forgemaster. Hesh pattern is nice, though for ultras only. hellfire rounds are the shitness, near-soloed a mawloc with them.
