Like the title says, whats up with the skulls EVERYWHERE???
Every single unit has a skull logo painted somewhere and most got 5-6 of them.
Are wh40k skulls something special that the demo doesn't tell me?
SM even got a unit thats made by strapping a infrared sensor to a flying skull.
I didn't make it!
Its just fluff in the game. Basically part of the theme of gritty and dark. Lots of units put skulls on their uniforms as trophies as well.

The skull is there for aesthetic values and to make the SM look tough methinks..They wouldn't be menacing if you put a rose in there would they!?
It's not just the sm. everything in dow has a skull fetish. For necrons and to a limited extend chaos, i could understand, but imperial cannonfodder has one on their helmets, one on their chest, 3 on their guns etc...
the skull will always induce some sort of fear or recallection of the dead in any one and as it is the most obvious way to distinguish a long dead body it is the symble of death in so many cultures and as death for the imperium or death by the imperium is sort of the whole 40K thing it is plastered everywere on that point so is the imperial eagle but thats only been alowed for 10,000 years but thats another story
mehh what do u want???
i like the skulls they look cool and the game gets a dark feeling because of them. I like it!!!
Why do SM get glowing skulls on their shoulders?
Because it just fits perfectly with the gothic feel and the fact that in the 41st millennium there is only war. Skulls simply just fit in perfectly with this game.
