cut them free leaving the plastic under the feet is probably easiest, you can then thin it to fit whatever base they're going on

Think I've got about 300 various plastic skeletons. Guess it's time to get another 100.

Do we know how many will be in a box? I hope it's comparable to warlord games.

So far 30 infantry per box. Dunno if they will stick with that but it seems likely.

Those skeletons make me wish I hadn't just bought a lot of Mantic Skeletons.

Very nice models.

Oh well.

The objective of the game is to win. The point of the game is to have fun. The two should never be confused.

Thank you very much, if that is the case then 4 boxes should bolster the forces nicely.

I think it's the archers more than anything and the possibility of chariots which are really luring me in.

I didn't see anyone else posting this picture.

This has made me want them even more. Ancient skeletons with cool looking bows. They'll certainly be getting added to my you dead hordes.

So many uses for those skeletons. And, knowing Northstart, they'll be cheap.

I already have plans to use a bunch in Frostgrave and Rangers of Shadow Deep...

They look nice, but the integral bases damps my enthusiasm.

Not that I exactly need them, but having more variety among my skeletons - and for relatively cheap - is always nice to have. Looking forward to when these hit my FLGS!

Not a fan of integrated bases but it takes about thirty seconds a miniature to be rid of them.

Pretty much my take on the situation. I've got 180 of the warlord games skeletons and 40 of the old GW ones. While I enjoy the fact they don't have integral bases a bit more contact with the base wouldn't go a miss.

I'm hoping it'll be 30 for £25 which is what their other kits are currently at. I'll be getting a few boxes as this has once again peaked my curiosity for undead options.

THOSE are some pretty impressive figures. Great batch too, you get quite a few for the sprue.



At Games Workshop, we believe that how you behave does matter. We believe this so strongly that we have written it down in the Games Workshop Book. There is a section in the book where we talk about the values we expect all staff to demonstrate in their working lives. These values are Lawyers, Guns and Money.

Oh, wow. I love them. Time for a bunch MORE skeletons for the horde.

There's even enough unhelmeted skulls for all five bodies! I wonder how well the arms scale with the Wargames Atlantic skeletons? I prefer my skeleton archers unarmored...

Skeletons are one of the time I really don't mind having the integral bases. Keeps them stable. Plus they aren't hard to cut off.

I'm sure I'll end up with a box.

Poorly lit photos of my ever- growing collection of completely unrelated models!

Gosh am I glad I haven't pulled the trigger on any of the other affordable skeletons kits, not because there's anything wrong with them, these just nail the aesthetic I'm after almost exactly.

Their huge buck teeth are a bit distracting to me. Might like them more if I head swapped them to have citadel skulls perhaps.

not a fan of the helmets or the axes but the bare heads & bow arms look great!
Sternums look a bit too beefy though.

Check out my gallery here
Also I've started taking photos to use as reference for weathering which can be found here. Please send me your photos so they can be found all in one place!!

How big is the head with the Thulsa Doom helmet? Would it fit on a Basilian or Frostgrave soldier like a head in a helmet?

If anything, Skeletons are extra bad for integral bases IMO, as spindly skeletons legs has a bigger tendency to bend when you cut of the base.
