Well I decided to build a servo skull using a left over skull I had laying around.

For those who don't know Servo Skulls are used by many in the warhammer universe.  a bleached human skull is implanted with an antigrav unite, sensors and other implants which vary depending on the desired use, some have weapons, some have small arms, others have larger sensor suites.

they are used as messengers, scouts, psychic familiars, mobile light weapons platforms, banner carriers,  pretty much anything you can think of...  

Apparently this is considered something of an honor in universe,  in one book a guy was proud that his own personal servo skull was actually his fathers head... yeah warhammer 40k is a little messed up

the skull itself is a dollar store halloween prop  I removed sections of the left eye socket and lower jaw,  the optical sensor is disposable spice container (white pepper), with the core of a scotch tape role and a plastic piece of pipe.  I also added a some plastic shell from a scrapped power screwdriver

That one looks small enough that it could be rigged with black wire to look like it's floating just above you somewhere. A small amount of sway would be just fine, just mind the doorways. Build up the teeth with a couple fangs and it's a gretchin skull. Or for a major challenge, build up the area around and above the eyes to get an infant skull. As you say 40K has issues. :-]

I was thinking about adding Some fangs to it but I'm not sure,  I think I will knock out a few teeth to atleat give it a more ragged look and I think I'm gonna paint the skull white for with a bit of yellow for a bleached effect.

I was planing on building a mount with a socket I could rest the skull on,  adding a removable transparent shaft to the shoulder of the armor might be cool for that

The shaft sounds a lot sturdier.

thanks,  I'm planning to place some metal plates bolted to the skull, but other then that I'm not sure.  

I see lots of them seem to have trailing cables so I might put some tentacle tubing in there and some spikes,  but I don't know if I should add some small arms, and grippers,  or a gun, or what....   I'll look around,  for insperaton as well as what I have on hand to make something....

Also for a orky look think I should slap a mecha lower jaw on it full of metal fangs?  or is that over doing it sine I'll have a mecha jaw too

Matching set of jaws sounds very tasteful. Lets everyone know that's yours, "so keeps dos greasy mitts orf".

I've done some slight modifications to the skull

the teeth mainly but you can also see the handle that's on it here

I have an Idea for the manipulators I want to put on it so I don't think I'll do the lower jaw
