Too much of a good thing?

*Squeek*

I thought that I would do a review of some Warhammer scenery...and you know what? I started to put together some thoughts, but the more I thought about it, the more those same thoughts came to be dominated by one thing only...

skulls, 
skulls, 
skulls!
From really big, carved skulls on Temples...
Temple of Skulls

 To lots and lots of small skulls (to keep out a draught?)...
Witchfate Tor. Tower of Sorcery

 To structural supports for "My First Megalomaniac's Evil Throne of Domination (TM)"..
Magewrath Throne and Balewind Vortex

 To 360 degree ornaments for your observatory...
Skullvane Manse

 To...
Deathknell Watch.

...well, you get the idea.

Now, I know that this is entirely a question of personal taste, and actually, I love GW's wargame terrain pieces for the most part, but I guess I have to say:

ENOUGH WITH THE GIANT SKULLS ON ALL THE SCENERY ALREADY. 

You have an incredibly talented group of designers at GW. Surely you can find some suitable alternative visual flourishes or design elements that still communicate the gritty reality of a fantasy world torn apart by war and conflict?

With respect,

*Squeek*

p.s. Having said that, I love the jacket.
p.p.s ...and no, I don't know who designed it.
