The 13th Co didnt even know there were rules limiting how badass they could be.

If I give the WGL a PW, then a Melta Bomb upgrade is purchased for the reasons you post.

I have been toying with different options for the WGLs in my grey hunters squads, and several other people on this forum keep suggesting the PF+meltabombs combo. I put this setup in my army list, but then started thinking, and I started wondering if PF+meltabombs is the best combo for WGLs. With the 5th ed rules about assaulting a vehicle, all hits are now on the rear armor in CC, so wouldn’t a powerfist just take care of that issue? I dont see the logic behind having both a powerfist and meltabombs, if this is a good option, could someone enlighten me as to why?
If he's got a Powerfist or Thunderhammer, then he doesn't need the Meltabombs; the marginal advantage isn't worth the cost. If you give him a Power Weapon, however, and there are no other Power Fists in the unit, then you would maybe want Meltabombs to ensure that you have something that can deal with Dreadnoughts/Walkers in close combat.
