Help needed. What is the most useless terrible model in the entire AOS/fantasy range?

I can't believe the razorgor is getting such hate! I love that little dude. I bought one for no reason at all after reading the grand alliance chaos book (I think) 

Same here for the Salamander. Sure, it isn't the greatest looking model, and it hasnt aged well, but it isn't as bad as some others IMO.

Would your purposes be served even better if it was the ugliest 40k model rather than the ugliest AoS model?

@Mosquito onthe TenthFloor And to be honest, I hope that when new one will be released, it'll still have bull head option.

We are all AOS players so want it to represent to some extent. Unless there was a truly terrible piece of 40k ****** we couldn't ignore.

Haha. One thing we sometimes do is instead of a wooden spoon for last place, we give out one of those 40k "Get Started" boxes with a Space Marine and a handful of paints.

My vote goes to the Skull Cannon. Rubbish rules and not a great model either

May be a controversial choice, but Theddra Skull-scryer from the Godsworn Hunt makes me cringe. She looks like she should be on a Motley Crue album cover.

For me comcerning the Empire units it is mainly their faces. The clothes and equipment look OK if you like renaissance armies, but their heads and hands look... bloated? Kinda weird.

The effect you described is done in purpose.

Psychology, humans have certain subconscious cues.  We are trained to recognize certain features - head, shoulders, feet and hands - as "strong", if those features are exaggerated.  

So because miniatures are so small, GW (and most other mini sculpting companies) will exaggerate the head, feet, shoulders and hands of a given model, so that they look powerful and strong, when they are only about an inch and a half talk, and being viewed from about two feet away on a table.

Unfortunately, sometimes this technique isn't executed very well, and the effect just looks chunky and wierd.  The Free People look this way.  Cadians from the 40k line suffer from this, as well.

IMO the only thing that's wrong with this is that it's on a rock stairwell rather than something mobile. Hopefully an easy conversion to put it on the back of some ghouls instead?

Maybe convert up a war shrine ogre to be a flesh golem carrying it

Not a fan of the pumbagor.

I like the old steam tank, the KoS, and the new FEC terrain
