So I am looking at a chapter master with an honor guard. My main question is with a relic blade and storm shield he has no range attack. I know the key is to not have him out of cc but if he is should I give him a grenade launcher for ranged attacks, or just a shot before he charges?

With a relic blade I'd suggest either a storm bolter or normal bolter. Storm bolter is 24" assault weapon, so he can use it before he charges. If you want him to be a bit more nasty, the bolter can use hellfire rounds, so you can wound monstrous creatures or that one annoying carnifex with ease (hit/wound are both 2+). The storm bolter adds 5 points, and the bolter w/hellfire adds 10 (yay freebie bolter).

problem with bolter w/ Hellfire rounds is that can't assault afterwards. i would give him a grenade launcher (as from my understanding, you can't give him any more options from the "replace chainsword and/or bolt pistol" thing) so yeah...

the good thing about the grenade launcher is that it doesn't replace any hand weapons. so you can have your relic blade and storm shield plus a ranged weapon that, imo, isn't half bad

A commander with relic blade and SS is expensive enough, especially with the honor guard. Thus, instead of worrying about a few bullet, i would keep them as far out of sight instead of getting in the open where you effectively painting a even bigger crosshair over them as they already have, seeing as the chances everything thats remotely able to shoot them will do that. I would give him some kind of transport.
