CrashGordon94 I suppose that's a fair enough point, really. Might do that at least for now then.
Thank you!

ntaw What's the worst that could happen if you just leave it the way it's modeled and proxy it one way or the other until you know what you like? I dislike proxying things but since I've started taking my conversions a bit more seriously I've been playing 'counts as' wargear in select and easy to remember places. Saves time on creating models I don't ever use. In any case I really doubt that his wargear choice will win or lose you the game, Librarians are damn squishy in combat against real combat units anyway.

CrashGordon94 Oh yeah, I suppose that's an option... Would be a pretty cool combo!
Might try it when I get another Deathwing box, could use one of the Maces of Absolution as the Mace of Redemption I'd think.
In the meantime, finished building the model and it came default with a Force Staff, do know of a way I could change it to a Force Axe easily enough though. Safe enough to do that now? Asking because I suppose I could stick with the Force Staff for now and maybe change later but as mentioned I have my concerns about using it.

ntaw Then trade the storm bolter you get in its place upon upgrading to TDA. Either way, there's a weapon to swap for it.

Why would that be, might I ask?

He doesn't have a pistol, you trade in the pistol and grenades when you give him Terminator Armor.

CrashGordon94 Well, not too sure what it'll fight. Guard and 'Nids I know, but I'm not sure I feel right relegating such an expensive and special unit to just fighting weaklings.
He has Terminator Armor as mentioned, as well as a Storm Bolter.
Not sure which unit he'll go in right now, have a choice of two Terminator Squads (mostly AP2 melee) or one Deathwing Knight Squad (All AP3 melee). Eventually I'll be popping him in a Deathwing Command Squad (which will likely be all AP2 melee except for the Apothecary). So I'm concerned that if he has the Staff he won't be piercing the armor of whatever the unit is hitting.

ntaw I have libby's with each of the weapons in question and the Axe or Staff has my vote every time (in that order). The staff being AP4 can be....frustrating...against T/MEQ. Considering you face 'Nids and Guard most the staff would likely be sufficient.
