But, but, they're khorne, they shouldn't care how much they weigh, besides i dont think adding a few spikes is going to make much of a difference when you think of the overall weight af a terminator anyway

I'm with this guy. I mean, look at the queek model:



How in the fuck does he fight with that thing on his back?

Mostly when ever it was an epic game or I barely won. Usually like a kill mark on the guns or banners.

When dealing with a world inhabited by magic, dragons, ogres, and let's face it, walking rat-men - i tend not to worry about things like the weight of a trophy rack or weapon size! Maybe that's just me though...

Besides, i think it looks awesome!

And to answer the question, dependent on the model, i might throw a little something on there. Once in a blue moon.

foible - foi·ble / ˈfoibəl
noun: a minor weakness or eccentricity in someone's character:
"they have to tolerate each other's little foibles".

Don't get me wrong, i think that model is one of GW's best looking sculpts

I think it's just me. I understand the need to suspend belief, but particular things niggle me. It's the reason all my SMs carry a helmet, either on their head or on their person, but yet all my swords are enormous and massively impractical.

Although I don't like trophy racks, it doesn't stop me from adding skulls, helmets, or other body parts on the bases or beneath the foot of my terminator. This is just to show that they do have some killing ability

Im a huge fan of trophies. I bought Calgar just to impale him on the spikes on the front of my chaos landraider along with half a UM tac squad. I also like to add trophies to my traitor guard in the form of armor from other races.

What kind of chaos general wouldnt hang corpses from his vehicles anyway? They provide extra protection if nothing else.

This chaos general wouldn't. I believe in efficiency, keeping things a light and effective as possible. Also I just don't like the way most of these things look. It's just a personal thing

I do some on occasion. Lately i have been working on using green stuff to make trophy skinnings to hang off my emperor's children.
this 1 i just added a head I found in my spare parts box


again raided the spare part box to dress up the base

I dont use "trophies" per-say but every time my DP kills something I put a little tick mark on his armour. My old DP has 49 kills so the marks are getting up there. I am actually trying to think of a new way of doing it. maybe ill find some interesting idea as this thread grows.
