I missed the entry about adding people because I was only looking on terminator upgrades, thanks.

 

Generally, how about solarite gauntlet? When is worth its use? I still cant decide if is better for praetor to have solarite or paragon. But where else you should use solarite? Its worth it in normal terminator squad, like for example for sergeant? Everybody plays squad with mix of powerfists and chainfists, where and when put solarite into this mix?

Sergeants can't take Solarite Power Gauntlets.

I'd only give a Praetor such weapon if he sits on a Bike or Jetbike and even then I'd prefer the Blade. Apart from that I'd always stick with the Paragon Blade.

They're the same as a Master Crafted Power Fist, as the AP1 only changes its damage against vehicles.

 

A master crafted power fist is nice, especially with a Storm Shield to be tanky, but a Paragon blade is generally better.

Something I read a while ago that might be worth considering: your praetor will likely always be in a challenge due to IF rules. With a paragon blade he will strike at I with a chance of causing instant death. With a fist, he will just need to survive one round of attacks and cause one unsaved wound to trigger instant death against most marine characters, his most likely target. So if you are going for a terminator praetor, consider using fist plus shield to ensure he survives that first round and then pastes his opponent to the ground. You can do that with a normal fist so no need for the power gauntlet, so you might even save some points. But the master-crafted will help you get one hit, which will likely translate into a wound thanks to strength 8.
It is true that the paragon blade will be more versatile, but depending on your local scene and the role you want to give your praetor a fist might be a good idea.

Sol Gloves are also useful to have on characters without specialist weapons since they, themselves, arent specialist unlike Regular Power Fists giving you +1A for having multiple weapons.

Gorgoff: I thought that all terminator sergeants and veteran sergeants can take thunder hammer and are characters, so they can take solarite gauntlet. But is ts usefull?

 

Elzender: That sounds interesting

That's nice, I had forgotten that part. Terminators are unlikely to benefit from it, but it is an interesting option for power armoured characters.

Only independend charakters can take the SG.
So no Sergeants.

Remember though, that a Primus Medicae in TDA still retains his needle pistol and would thus benefit.
