Default Trophies

Hey, how many of you use trophies on your models?

To qualify this, I mean adding heads, bits of gear, dead guys on the base, etc. Things that workshop didn't include with the model. Chaos terminator trophy racks don't count, unless you add to them.

And I'd love to see some pics of your favorite trophies in your army.

I don't have any so far, but my chaos lord is going to get a lot of trophies.

Oh, i often add skulls on chains to my guys, does that count?

Nope, just what comes on the model. was the closest to Given the option I remove the trophies GW put on there.

I like a sleeker, less spiky, model.

i hate the trophy racks, i took them off my chaos terminators, and just have a row of spikes where the racks used to be. I just feel that as close combat specialist, would know to keep themselves lights and not have more to get in the way. Also, it got in the way of some of my poses

If it will look good, then yeah I will give a model trophies, normally to commemorate a specific kill, but I don't go overboard.

Or I will just add tally to the weapons maybe, or add another purity seal for example.

If the model kills something really awesome in some really awesome way, then I might give it something...
