I have been wanting to make some of my bigger models' bases less bland by putting kill trophies on their bases by using spare body parts from other sprues. I play Tyranids and Tau so i wanted to putdead things on the bases of my tyrant and shas'o commander. What species/race do you think would look good on there bases? Thanx!
loves the funeral for hearts.
For the tyrant... i would have to say a Space marine, because you see them fighting all the time..
as for the Shas'o.... hmm.. that one is tough, Tau is pretty neutral... so i dont know.
You Can't Stop the Eighp
Had Tzeentch before I knew how to play :P
I'm in the process of putting dead Marines on the bases of all my Tau Battlesuits (Well, except Stealthsuits). So far, I've got a Broadside with a dead one at it's feet and another getting smote by the arm-mounted railguns, one with a smoking hole in his chest at the feet of one of my Shas'o, and another getting kicked by my other Shas'o.
Burn the land and boil the sea. You can't take the sky from me.
Member of the Canadian Clan, eh.
Mech Tau Cadre: 2000 points, needs paint and magnets.
Paladins of Avalon (SW):-1500 points, needs paint.
Yeah the tyrannid one was pretty obvious, but the fact is that i dont have any space marine troops. But i do have chaos space marines if that works. The tau are difficult, maybe a termagant or something similar? Im not sure how to model them onto the base though.
Thanx for the suggestions though.

Tau would have either orks or guardsmen as trophies as their major conflicts have been against these races. However, Tau fire caste members are very honourful and head-taking probably wouldn't be high on their list of priorities. Unless it was a farsight enclave, but few people use those for quite obvious reasons.
This may seem alittle weird but I saw a Ethreal with necron peices scattered about its base and it looked realy cool. Maybe it could do the same for a Shas'o. (Shas'o is the battlesuit commander?
For the Tyrant a space marine head but if you only have a chaos space marine head then try and pick one that is the most 'unchaosy' and paint it like an ultramarine.
For the Shas'o id say either a guardsmen or a necron scattered to bits would look cool as Catachan Devil said.
Alternatively you could try sticking on models from the armies of your regular opponents as a sort of psyche-out, or add models from armies you beat as you beat them so that you're updating the bases as you go. This might get pricey though...
Maybe if you feel like it could add some of your own models to the bases like your shas'o is the last man alive on the battlefield.
