I have always loved servo skulls. They have a morbid cuteness that can't be beat. For those that don't know, when a particularly devout Imperial servant (such as a janitor or accountant) dies, they get honored by getting turned into a servo skull. Well, not the servant himself, actually. Just his skull. The servant stays dead while a little robot floats about wearing his brain case, taking videos and reminding important Imperial dignitaries about upcoming appointments. Absolutely adorable.
I only needed three, so the other will be saved for a later date. The way I use them, each character gets one for each wound beyond 1 to follow them around the table. Every time the character is wounded, a servo skull gets removed. No more skulls=one wound left.
My Dark Angels Interrogator-Chaplain gets the halo skull and the plain skull, but I wanted to give the Librarians single skull a little extra zing. So, I free-handed a sword and a couple of lines for wards on the skull, in oh-so-magical blue, of course.
Not great, but also not a lot of room to work in and the Librarian needed something special. Of course I can't sign off without giving you a look at some skulls with their master:
That's it for now. These were dead-simple to put together and make for a fun project to add a little flair to your army. May the Emperor protect and happy gaming!
