Painted Mantic Games Skeleton Warriors

I have finished painting another unit of Mantic Games Skeleton Warriors. I actually bought three boxes of 20 skeletons each, and used them to make two units of 30 each for Warhammer Fantasy. Having just recently played my first game with the new Vampire Counts army book, I'm now thinking that 30 skeletons is not going to be a very effective unit. I was losing 10 to 20 skeletons each combat phase, so a unit of 30 isn't going to last a single turn. I guess I'll have to get more to add to each of my units and try to paint them to match. In any case, below are some pictures of the finished (for now) unit. Click on them to see larger versions.

  1. Very nicely done unit. I play VC too and I feel you on the skeleton losses but I play a 30 "man" unit also and it can still work out. So long as you got 1 guy you can hold it together with Invocation from a couple different casters. Also pair them with another unit to hit the flank to negate the enemy's rank bonus and that helps. :)

  3. Yes. Good. More skeletons is JUST what your Counts needed. They look damn cool though.
