id always assumed them to be smoke grenades. technically, they cant take them in game, but you can be sure they'd take them in real life.

remember too, accessories exist to make models look cool. marines have an autopistol in a holster. yet no marine can take an autopistol. does that mean they can't use that accessory? heck no. it just looks nice.

I'd guess they are some type of grenade - or a bolas.

Like Deadnight said - accesories are for coolness, not always game function.

Or a kind of gourd filled with yummy dead enemy goo.

They look like gourds wrapped in leather straps to me. I guess once you decide what it is, that is what you see when you look at it.

I'm inclined to think they are smooth stones to chuck at the enemy.

They might be some kind of fruite, maybe with liquid inside like a coconut or something...
