    But wait there's more! I have no glue the shields to the skeletons and I resent them to you by themselves as well as with their buddies I painted the other week.

    A few of the bone parts are a tad too brown for my personal taste, but you can always say that's still earth from the grave or so. Bones (depending on many factors) can become brown like that.

    Where did you get the Kopesh from btw?

    They look quite good. I like the oxidation effect on the bronze components. I agree with @Aginor , a few of the skeletons are a bit darker than I prefer, but I can see the effect working well if applied throughout the army.

    I love the highlight on the blades! Also pretty good variation, each skeleton looks different, yet similar enough to look good in the group.

    138 Miniatures or equivalency for the year

    15/40 current tomb guard.

    Eventually I want ridiculous amounts of these. They are literally my favorite Miniatures

    How many would you consider fielding within a single army list?

    In a 2000 pt list for kings of war? 2 units of 40 with a standard behind them to anchor my center.

    Then that should be your goal. 80 Tomb Guard! Although in KoW, don't you only have to place half the number of models on the base?

    Minimum model count is 50% + 1.

    For undead, I generally go all the way to make the units feel like they should

    That's a nice system. That's the one thing I really like about KoW. Being able to field a diorama type unit is awesome.
