Inspiration: Human Trophy Skulls

Human skull... An inexhaustible natural resource, a macabre brand of the 40k universe and a never decomposing inspiration. When dwelling the Internet for ideas for my next project I bumped into some nasty looking human skulls collected by Asian head hunting tribes.

Here is a small collection of them...

There they lie, disturbingly staring at you with their hollow eyes, their hosts left them long time ago. I couldn't help but wonder how to implement the creepy feeling and the chills you get from them in some of my future projects....


  1. Wow, these are great.

    Are you familiar with the Empire of Death book? ( That's perfect for inspiration and very 40k.

    1. No I wasn't so thank you for the hint, Fulgrim! I'm quite sure my nearest libraries won't have it on their selves, but who knows, maybe I'll be surprised...

    2. No problem. Thanks for the above images, you've helped me out with an idea for something.

  2. Great inspiration. That Empire of death book looks awesome as well.

    I'd be really tempted to buy one of these trophy skulls if I had a few grand extra and didn't think that it would bring bad Ju Ju into my house :P
