I was thinking of taking a grav pistol, but I think thats supposed to be new weaponry developed in the late M41.
Actually it doesn't say that in the Grav-weapon profile in the new Codex.

In battle, grav-weaponry affects the local gravity field, using its victimís own mass against them, an ordeal that will stun those it does not kill outright. Heavily armoured targets find themselves crushed as if by the mighty fist of the Emperor himself, while vehicles are left as crumpled, smoke belching wrecks.
So in the interest of diversity you could have a grav-pistol if you wanted. I was also going to ask if you'd be willing to change your Chainsword to a Chainaxe as we have 2-3 swords already and an axe is a more fitting weapon for an Executioner. You don't have to if you don't want to though.
@Deus Mortis. Accepted, and thank you being a good sport about the Templar.
Once Angel of Blood puts his character up i'll start work on the opening post. And to answer your weapons question AoB, any of these are available.
Chain Weapons (Sword, Axe, Claw, etc)
Power Weapons (Again, whatever form you want)
Bolter Weaponry (Any kind. Bolter, pistol, storm, combi)
Relic Weapons (Again, whatever form you want)
The only thing I ask is that you not use a Sword/Shield combo as two players are already using that. But you could use a Greatsword or two blades, or perhaps Lightning Claws or a more esoteric kind of blade.
