Hi everyone,
I keep a log of every AH game I play, and I have a sort of meta-game whereby when I defeat a GOO three times I consider it 'banished', as in truly defeated.
This doesn't mean that I can't fight that GOO in a future game, it just means that I buy myself a trophy or bit of chrome. For example when I defeated Hastur I got myself some engraved plastic elder signs to use when I seal a gate.

Now, I had another idea recently and I need some help on it. I was thinking it would be cool to have a real 'trophy' for each banished GOO, which I could use as a first-player marker when facing that GOO.

For example with Cthulhu I could get a miniature version of the statuette described in the story.

My question to you is this: What thematic trophies could I get for each of the other GOOs? I was thinking a coiled snake or something for you-know-who, but I'm at a bit of a loss after that.

Any ideas?

they might dabble in some chrome for you...also, there have been miniatures made by some big names in the business that might satisfy your need for chrome.

Cryptozoic fanned the flames, so it might yet be available retail at some point:

These monster stands aren't specific to any Ancient One but they're really cool!

You could get an official FFG monster mini related to each of the Ancient Ones: Dark Young for Shub, Byakee if you beat Hastur, Dunwich Horror for Yog etc. These could always be used as 1st player markers.

Or use your victory as an excuse to buy the Investigator mini of whoever is awarded First Citizen at the end of each game.
