Basically, I want to do a lot of mini dioramas. All of which involve a guardsman or guardsmen getting owned, PWNed, killed embaresingly, what ever you want to call it.
Rep for anyones ideas I use.
Here's my ideas so far. The ones in bold, I've decided on;
Chaos Daemons- have a warp rift open underneath him
Chaos Space Marines-Being hit by a magic bolt and starting to mutate. (thanks to ArtificiallyEnhanced)
Daemonhunters-Assassin shooting an eldar and the guardsman running in front of the shot and getting 'headshotted' (thanks to No 1 Cafe.)
Dark Eldar- have him stuck in a cage, tied up with hooks (thanks to thenewKhan)
Imperial Guard-maybe have him running away and being shot by a commisar?
Necrons- Have a wraith appear from a wall behind him
Orks- having him flame some and have an ork part way through pushing a propane tank into the flame right next to the guardsman.
Space Marines-having a crushed head and a terminator foot print
Tau Empire- stuck up a tree surrounded by kroot hounds. (thanks to Deadstar_MRC)
Tyranids- running through a dark cave lit by a small torch on the floor, looking backwards and running straight towards a 'nid.
Witch Hunters- A guardsman staring and reaching out to her breast plate and getting slapped. (thanks to ArtificiallyEnhanced & Deadstar_MRC.)
These are my ideas. Anyone got any good ones/any help please share. Remember, these should be comical.

Nice ideas, for the DE one you could use the cage from the giant sprue and some zombie bitz.
Cron one is very cool.
How about something nurgley for the CSM one- maybe a sorceror casting and him getting boils and stuff all down the side of his face?
The commissar with riding crop would be great for the IG one.
Eldar: guardsman running up to vehicle to chuck a grenade up the back and getting blasted by the jet/sucked into the engine.
Tau- tinkering with some tau tech and it exploding.
Eldar I'm not sure about.

Tau/kroot, getting eaten by a kroot/kroot hound.
daemonhunters, maybe combined with chaos, have a Nurgle sorcerer like ArtificiallyEnhanced suggested, but then on the guardsmans other side have a DH getting ready to gun him down.
Maybe have him on his knees holding his head with an eldar using some sort of mind power on him?
DE would be good with a cage, but have some meat hooks or something in his chest/shoulders?
Thanks for the replies guys. I'll edit the list when I've had a few suggestions and maybe tweaked a few and decided. Thanks for the interest so far.
for tau, you might be able to get multiple seeker missles about to hit him
I had an idea for a diorama based on one of Jon's painting contests which you could steal.
An imperial guardsman up some small, dead-looking tree (so essentially just a stick in the ground) looking obviously panicked and clutching on for dear life, with a Kroot hound barking (or whatever it is they do) up at him.
Other options; (some already suggested, but I'm just putting my spin on them I suppose)
> getting bapped by a drone (or a just being surrounded by drones)
> Staring down the twin-linked barrels of a broadside when he's only got a laspistol or a knife
> Something similar could be done with a Hammerhead
> Being landed on (or blown away by the exhaust from) a Crisis suit
> Stealthsuit surprise?
> Painting him with a little red laser dot on the middle of his forehead, and a bunch of seeker missiles about to hit him.
Oh, I know! Have him standing over the wreckage of a drone, with some pose indicative of how proud he is of his victory, and then some other Tau unit (Hammerhead, broadside, stealthsuit, whatever) directly behind him.
I suppose that could work for any race, too but using the same idea again and again won't be that good.
For Imperial Guard I thought you could have him getting squished by a tank, but maybe something else may be better.
A line of guardsman carrying some munitions, and one of them tripping over?
Two guardsmen standing together, either with one of them holding a pin and a grenade on the ground between them, or with one of them throwing the pin and still holding the grenade and his friend looking on in horror.
A lot of the above ideas are going to rely on the expression, though, which may be difficult to pull off...
By using the word 'Pwnage' this immediately decreases exponentially in value.
I thought about something similar for tyranids/guard--- but I like the idea of competent guard, I prefer to kill them with nobility and majesty rather than incompetence and stupidity.
