Every unit should have one considering they are free. You could obviously model them as a standard or banner or whatever, but what other options are there for modeling icons?
They aren't free, are they?

The Icon is free, but you have to get a Mark of Chaos to get any kind of Icon. If you're anything like me your basic troops will have MoCU as standard anyway.
I got a good result from taking one of the eight-pointed stars from the Chaos vehicle accessory sprue and sticking it to the Aspiring Champion trophy pole. Alternatively you could just use the trophy pole as an Icon, or even say that your AC's power fist is so (un)holy it counts as an Icon.
i recently picked up a discount dark templar conversion box. in it were assault arms that i was desperatly needing, which look awsome on a champion btw. But also there are two flag dealies on a small rod.. so i thought to myself, "Wonder how that would look just glued on top of the chaos marines backpack... so i glued the rod to the backpack and it looks as though the flag thing is draped from it.. painted it up real god and no one was the wiser at the local get together, lol thought it was some INQ model or somethin. Anyway thats my two cents.
