Hi, I can see on the interweb that many choses to equip their Autarch with ex. an reaper launcher to take advantage of his BS. 2.

What I dont understand is, where does it say what equipment/weapons he can/can't chose?

I mean, in the craftworld codex, where exactly is it written where and what equipment he can chose, like fx a Autarch/HQ equipment list?

The Datasheet tells you what equipment lists you can pick from.

Those lists tell you what the options are.

I scratch-built a Macharius Vulcan, Thunderbolt and Spartan! Have a peek at the build and my painting progress here: https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/90/513429.page

Correct, that is where the options are, but I assume OP's question was about how exactly the Autarch is able to take a reaper launcher, as there is no option in the codex.

There was a flowchart released by GW:

What it essentially means is that you can take your Autarch from the codex, but give him a Reaper Launcher as per the index option, using the points cost from the codex.

Confusticating, right?

The flowchart from the Designers Commentary allows you to. https://whc-cdn.games-workshop.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/warhammer_40000_designers_commentary_en-1.pdf

That being said, this is the one time GW has actually gone on record as saying that the intent behind these rules is to allow older players with old, now non-codex legal models to still use them, rather than let new players use them, so make of that what you will. FWIW I say take the thing all you want, you're permitted to and it's not your job to hobble yourself on HONOUR!

To clarify, The Autarchs in the Codex have little to no options outside those the current models are stuck with
The Autarchs in the Index have the same plethora of options that Autarchs have always enjoyed

So using the Flow chart referenced above, we can conclude that you may take a Codex Autarch with all the same options as an Index Autarch, but you get to use the points and rules from the Codex.

My personal favorite use for this is a Saim-Hann Autarch Skyrunner with Lance, Banshee mask and Reaper launcher
You get to use the points costs from the Codex (which are cheaper) and the rules for the Banshee mask fro the codex (which is better)
It's also the only model that takes full advantage of both the Saim-hann abilities to fire Heavies without penalty and re-roll charges.
