question about honor guard (blood angels)

question if you give one honor guard a chapter banner do they lose a weapon?

does it say it replaces X weapon
I fall into a dark hole
And I can't come out
Do you know if Merlin did exist
Or Frodo wore the ring
Did Corum kill the gods
Or where's the wonderland
Which young Alice had seen
Or was it just a dream
I knew the answers
Now they're lost for me

It doesn't effect his other war gear at all.

The Chapter Banner does not take a weapon slot. You can attach it anywhere on the model. It is just that GW likes to make their miniatures hold in it in their hand. :)

My honour guard have the banner attached to a jump pack.

Hands are too full with melta guns, or lightning claws and storm shields.

Why would anyone want to carry those bloody unwieldy things into battle anyway? Stupid GW. :roll:

If I were them, I'd attach a weapon to the top, and make it useable as a proper halberd kind of thing. Much more effective.
