I'd like to model my marines with trophies representing their past victories. Only problem is I drawing a blank. My first game with them was against necrons and I'd like to give my captain a trophy. Any Ideas?
Well Necrons are a bit fuzzy because they're SUPPOSED to phase away to be repaired after a battle, but the Defiler kit clearly has a Necron head on a spike. I'd say go with it, but particularly annoying Necron players will love to remind you of the above fact.
For a truly impressive trophy, I'd go with a separate model. Like a servitor that exists just to carry around a Tyranid head or the corpse of a Chaos Champion. Now that's impressive.
Model a space marine with one foot on the wreckage of a terminated necron, then you can hold him back and only use him in battles against necrons. Might look wierd carrying trophies of necrons if your up against, say, orcs.
Jager bombs. Very efficient at wiping out friend or foe.
Or you could give some of your SMs gauss flayers. Strange, but I do beleive there's a book where it happens.
That, or banners depicting the victories.

Banners is a better idea, using Gauss Flayers is very not SM. The Bolter is a holy weapon in their eyes and has no peer. Now that's not true...but it's how they roll.
I don't like banners personally. So I go with little trophies on the base.
For Necrons for example there are two ways to go. Either a wrecked, terminated Necron body on a larger base made more scenic or only a head or a weapon or even a hand or torso with the Marines' foot on...
Thanks to all the people showing faith in me
I sometimes feel that everyone will leave me and they will be on their own...
Definitely the head of a Necron somewhere on the base or your marine standing over the broken body of a Necron.

My friend has The Mobile Trophy Mobile. Essentially it is a land raider, with small mesh bags full of heads, attached to certain places on it. Mainly ork heads.
My other friend who plays orks has a Nob on a very large base. It has shell torn ground with space marines cut in half strewn about the place and the Nob giving a war cry.
I was thinking for my captain, putting a broken scarab on his base. The reason being he single handedly took out two scarab swarms.(the squad he was with didn't do a thing. they either failed the hit them or my opponent make almost all his saves.) What do you think?
